Call out sexism and misogyny -- especially if it's coming from someone who claims to be progressive. However, I worry the label is being thrown around loosely and being applied to many well-meaning, non-sexist male critics of Clinton.
While the folks who illegally occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge claimed to want to overthrow the tyranny of the federal government, they seemed quite willing to leave the tyranny of patriarchy unquestioned.
I'm here to tell you, there is no fear in Christ, there is freedom. There is no shame in Christ, there is strength. There is no guilt in Christ, there is redemption.
Whatever might be the social, economic and political grievances that are congealing in support for his candidacy, Trump's supporters are bathing in his testosterone spray.
Through this experience, I've grown to learn a bit about what it takes to be a better husband when your spouse depends on you to be the caretaker.
