Putting to Rest Several Strawwomen

Mary Kassian has a great article that I stumbled upon through another blog. She seeks to set to rest “'Dora the Doormat' and other Scary Straw Women of Complementarity." As a complementarian, I appreciated the effort to clear up misrepresentations of the position.

Yes, sadly there are. And I am the first in line to call them to account. But to say that these caricatures accurately represent the views of complementarians is like saying the Unabomber accurately represents the views of environmentalists. So please stop doing it!
