Beginning with Gender

Why is most conservative theology of Gender carried out only with reference to the Doctrine of Creation?
Actually, that’s being too kind – it’s not carried out with reference to the Doctrine of Creation – it’s carried out as though it were Natural Theology (i.e., abstracted from ‘observable reality’).

Here are two questions that should not be by-passed:
How do we know our Gender through Christ (who reveals God to us, and us to ourselves)?
What difference does the Cross (where we know Christ) make to Christian thinking about Gender?

I’ve been stewing over this for a while. More thoughts to come.
