Blog of the Week:
“The first time I said it out loud, it took courage. It felt weird, a bit risky and daring. I was trying the word on, like a little girl trying on her mother’s shoes, to see if it fit me: feminist. And it did fit, it grew to fit beautifully, and so I turned this way and that, admiring the way the word clung to my voice and my thoughts and my work like we belonged together.
I’m a feminist.”
(Sneak Peek: During the month of July, I will be posting a series on Mondays about why I am a Christian Feminist)
Bravest Apology of the Week:
Alan Chambers of Exodus International, one of the largest and oldest proponents of so called restorative therapy apologizes to the LGBT community and Exodus International shuts down.
“I am sorry for the pain and hurt that many of you have experienced. I am sorry some of you spent years working through the shame and guilt when your attractions didn’t change. I am sorry we promoted sexual orientation change efforts and reparative theories about sexual orientation that stigmatized parents.”
