Complementarianism presupposes androgynism

Despite the confidence that conservative evangelicals have in it, complementarianism is not a firm and clear-headed articulation of Scripture’s holistic teaching on sexuality. It is an erratic defensive effort to preserve a few traditional exceptions to androgyny, on the basis of piecemeal exegetical arguments, while accepting this androgyny in principle by jettisoning the embarrassing telos that underwrites gendered duties. This concession represents a major break from the church’s universal historical teaching.
