    A conversation with Catholic literary scholar and former postmodern feminist Abigail Favale.


    Deep confusion about sexual identity is a seeming cornerstone of contemporary society, plaguing not only our institutions and laws, but, sadly, the lived experiences of many. But according to Abigail Favale, a deeper linguistic confusion undergirds much of our inability to make sense of who we are in a way that fully integrates all the factors, including our bodies.

    In fact, in an important 2019 piece for Church Life Journal entitled “The Eclipse of Sex by the Rise of Gender,” Favale argues that a widespread cultural neglect of our sexed bodies and inherent procreative potential as the basis for the distinction between men and women — and therefore for a person’s own sexual identity — is the source of many societal ills today.

    Favale, an associate professor of English and the dean of the College of Humanities at George Fox University in Oregon, argues that a potent combination of widespread oral contraception and social theory gave rise to a concept of gender — that is, the socially conditioned roles men and women play — divorced from embodiment. Gender, rather than sex, has become the primary way people think and talk about their sexual identity, to the point now where a person’s self-identified gender is considered to be determinative of his or her biological sex, instead of the other way around.

    Since this has been taught in the school system, gender confusion is up some 4000%.

    It appears that mostly girls suffer, and of those girls with psychological issues.

    Check your link, but the taco soup looks good!

    "linguistic confusion" is an intriguing lead in. And the linguistically confused are fighting to make their linguistics the norm. Messing with language is not good. I've heard it said that we can't think beyond our vocabulary, which to some degree makes sense.

    This psychologist suggest the problem runs much deeper and is much broader especially under age 35. The meat of the message starts at 2 minutes in ( saves watching the whole thing unless you get interested lol)

    I agree! Thanks for the recipe -- I love a good spicy vegetarian soup, and I think I'll try making it. :)

    Your recipes are usually good but the build up to this one was a new angle. :)

    Gender identity crisis. Is it a soup or a stew?

    It’s kind of thick so it’s hard to tell. It is (labeled) soup though. ;)

    Well, as your topic says "Appearance, rather than taste, has become the primary way people think and talk about their potpourri identity"
