As I’ve been posting on the last few days about the ambiguity of protestant identity, perhaps its time to calm down a bit and write about something more fun and simply. Like man cards. You know, the little points men/boys like myself award themselves for doing “man” things. Like this weekend when I singlehandedly repaired my car’s transmission. That merited plenty of man points for the month of September, especially given my utter lack of experience working on cars before, let alone transmissions. So, I invite you all to revel in my manly success…assuming of course that when I get up from this fine coffee shop to drive home, my car doesn’t burst into flames or something.
However, having now revelled, perhaps inappropriately in reifying some problematic gender roles, allow me to point you to Melissa’s excellent post on the lack of women theology bloggers.
