I was impressed with the evident way Fred loves his wife, Kim, and his children.His passion for the word of God and for Christ our Savior is evident. He’s written a wonderful book on Warfield’s theology. And that’s come through not only in our conversation but also in our emails recently.Daughters of all ages are consistently used as a prop for machismo.Their protection, an excuse for everything from perpetuating these sexist household “rules” to actual transphobic legislation.
Rule Two: You do not touch my daughter in front of me.
It’s admittedly frustrating that a father saying his daughters are autonomous over their own bodies and choices is such an anomaly it’s worth celebrating.
Perhaps someday the absence of sexism will be less surprising than expected.
Rule Five: It is usually understood that in order for us to get to know each other, we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on this subject is: “early” Rule Six: I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls.
This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter.
