Who is to blame that your son is not masculine enough? A flow chart for conservative mothers

Many parents are very worried that our sons are not masculine enough nowadays. Take for example Pastor Pete N. Jones, apparently a fan of Doug Wilson.

Just kidding, of course. Masculinity is not some special thing boys have to learn to follow God. Males and females simply have to get the fruit of the Spirit.

Blaming women in church for what men are is easy, but God will ask men to account for themselves. Mothers (the church kind and the literal kind) will not be asked to give account for the choices of men.
