Yes, Motte Brown. This is an open blog post to you. I dunno if Ted is going to alert you to this post. I'm certain he's watching the referral reports in Typepad to see who's linking back to the Boundless blog. So, if you are reading this, here it goes ...
What gives Motte? First it was "Responding Like Men, Not Boys." Then it was "Real Men Initiate." Then it was the "Headship" post where we were informed that men are responsible for everything that goes wrong with the little woman. Then another jab at the guys ("True. But woman is only the arbiter of life if first the man leads her down the path of fornication."). And now, one more. (Motte, pray tell, what does mutual aid from a friend have to do with "adultescence"? How did married people ever survive for centuries without the government entitlements, handouts, and other preferential "benefits" that you think are so sacrosanct and belong only to them? And that bit about "especially for guys" at the end? Well ...)
Motte, what's with the man bashing? It kinda' reminds me of the fellow who makes a few cracks about his friends when the ladies show up at the dinner table. A lot of blokes do it. But it's gotten old, my friend. The brotherhood is not amused anymore. Any other man in your shoes would have gotten a swirlie or a blanket party by now.
You and Steve Watters never let up. Steve posts a piece about "child-men" but where's the piece about "freemales"? Hmmm? Yeah, I didn't think so. It's too typical of where Boundless is at. So, what impression do you think you leave with the guys, Motte? Do you want to be known as the Dr. Phil of the Evangelical blogosphere? Do you and your cohorts want Boundless to be equated with Lifetime, WE, or Oxygen? Read this piece by Paul Coughlin, Motte and think about what I'm saying. The guys don't want to blackball you, Steve, or Ted from the fishing trip, but things are looking dicey right now.
Now on a more serious note: You may think the writers at Boundless are upholding the Word of God and what it has to say about manhood. But really, I am convinced that you guys need to rethink some of your assumptions. Ponder on these things.
