What would a real man do?

Amanda pointed me to this post, by Joel, which I enjoyed, and now intend to share with other men of my acquaintance, at least for their discussion. Whilst I approve pretty much of all of what Joel wrote, I am slightly worried about epistemological considerations - he writes, for example, that "God made your skin washable for a reason" - but he doesn't seem to apply this to women.

In the meantime, if anybody is interested in one of the definitive Christian texts on gender, and didn't already know, the entire text of "Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood" by John Piper and Wayne Grudem can be downloaded as a PDF file here (482 pages, 1.4 MB).
