What is a woman? What is a man? Each biological sex is essential to defining the other. Without a man there no sense in being a woman. Without a woman, there is no sense in being a man.

Is sex simply about reproduction? That is most certainly important.

Genesis 1:26-28 New American Standard Bible

Then God said, “Let Us make mankind in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the livestock and over all the earth, and over every crawling thing that crawls on the earth.” So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

God wanted creatures made in His image to fill the earth. That required men to treat women as women and women to treat men as men, but why would we do that?

Genesis 2:18-25 New American Standard Bible

Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” And out of the ground the Lord God formed every animal of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name. The man gave names to all the livestock, and to the birds of the sky, and to every animal of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him. So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place. And the Lord God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. Then the man said,

“At last this is bone of my bones,

And flesh of my flesh;

She shall be called ‘woman,’

Because she was taken out of man.”

For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked, but they were not ashamed.

God created men and women for each other. Without a woman, a man is incomplete. Without a man, a woman is incomplete.

Yet much of our society has become the enemy of this truth, that man and woman both exist. In a open letter to American State Department Spokesperson Ned Price, consider how Everett Piper puts the matter.

Dear American State Department Spokesperson Ned Price, 

On Aug. 16, 2021, after suffering one of the most humiliating defeats in your country’s history, you took to the airways to speak on behalf of your nation’s government. You cowered like a frightened little boy. You stammered with a staccato voice. You embarrassed yourself and your foolish leaders by “demanding” that we, the Taliban, immediately establish a new government that is “humanitarian,” one that respects all men, and one that is “inclusive,” which also “protects the rights of women and girls.” We laugh at you. You are in no position to demand anything of us. Your assumption of having any moral authority over Afghanistan and its people is a joke.   

Can you spell delusional?

Your country pretends to be an exemplar concerning women’s rights while, at the same time, you deny your own mothers and daughters their basic rights of having their own bathrooms, their own showers, and their own dressing rooms.  

You dishonor your sisters, grandmothers, nieces, and aunts by stealing their privacy, dignity, and even their identity and, yet, you presume to lecture us on how to treat women and girls. 

You subject your own children to the barbarity of puberty-blocking hormones, chemical castration, and surgical mutilation, and yet you proclaim that you expect us to be more “humanitarian.”

In a society that substitutes an invention of the imagination, a social construct, “gender” for biological sex, what is a man? What is a woman? What are the rights of someone who does not exist? 

There is a difference between the mores (Mores | Definition of Mores by Merriam-Webster) of a society and ethics (Ethics | Definition of Ethics by Merriam-Webster). If we want to please people, we follow the mores of our society. If we want to please God, we strive to do what is ethical in His eyes. Ethical behavior may not make us popular, but it will help us to understand the difference between a man and woman. Ethics behavior will help us to discern what is real and what is fake, what is good, and what is evil.
