The Ultimate Word

"The ultimate Word is not a paragraph but a person. If Jesus is the Word of God incarnate, then the heart of proclamation is personal and relational, not propositional."

Everyday Sexism

So... For some reason, when I've got a lot on my mind I find myself noticing things I might not otherwise notice.

Well, today I was driving back to the office after lunch when I was struck by this:

School crossing signs are sexist!!

Just look at it!

The girl is significantly smaller.

But that's not enough to convict. I suppose she could be younger.

But look at the boy. Not only is he bigger (which, of course in America-speak means better), but look at the way he's touching her. She's ahead of him, but he's CLEARLY in charge! He's holding her by the elbow. He not just accompanying her, he's directing her!

How annoying!!
