My experience has been that Christians who identify as progressive can be taken with how forward thinking they believe they are. But they don’t have room for actual heartache driven compassion which is how Jesus modeled feminism.
In my experience, a christian man who calls himself progressive can be extremely frustrating to talk to because it’s like their identity is so tied to being progressive that they don’t have anything left to learn. For my experience has been that often these men are the ones who would rather do the talking.
And the female voice in progressive faith communities still sees so much silencing and progressive christian men don’t want to believe that they’re a part of the silencing because that’s a painful realization.
And so conversation shuts down and this is a big obstacle for feminism and faith.
