Cultural Chaos

03-06-2021Fr. John Bonavitacola

Dear Friends,

So, who needs women? That’s not a complaint of a misogynist. And specifically, I mean biological women. Researchers are already promising a future where biological women are not needed for reproduction. And phrases like “women who are born female” and “women who are not biological males” are now part of our lexicon. And yes, many of you are getting into trouble because you incorrectly used the wrong pronoun or got philologically tripped up with this new vocabulary.
