- The Pope talks about the man/woman thing, praising complementarity (yuck) and denouncing gender theory (sigh). Strangest of all, he exhorts society and the church to give women more of a voice, while at the same time completely ignoring that he and the church discriminate against women. I guess he'll never get it :( Here's a bit of what he said ...

[...] This catechesis and the next are concerned with the difference and complementarity between man and woman ... I wonder, for example, if the so-called gender theory is not also an expression of a frustration and of a resignation, which aims to cancel the sexual difference because it no longer knows how to address it ....

It is without doubt that we must do much more in favor of woman if we want to give back more strength to the reciprocity between men and women. In fact, it is necessary that women not only be more listened to, but that her voice has real weight, a recognized authoritativeness in the society and in the Church. The way itself with which Jesus considered women –we read it in the Gospel, it is so! -- in a context less favorable than ours, because in those times women were in fact in second place ... and Jesus considered her in a way which gives a powerful light, which enlightens a path that leads far, of which we have only followed a small piece. We have not yet understood in depth what things the feminine genius can give us, which woman can give to society and also to us. Perhaps to see things with other eyes that complements the thoughts of men. It is a path to follow with more creativity and more audacity ...
