Ivan Illich, The Sad Loss of Gender

Catholics often speak about the complementarity of the sexes in their response to gender deconstructionists and radical egalitarians, touching upon the differences in roles and functions. But often they will not talk about domestic authority--some do not accept the traditional teaching of the Church on this point; others think that it may be a scandal. But if there is a crisis of sanctity and of virtue, should we not be reaffirming this teaching so as to give guidance to both men and women? Nature pays no heed to ideologues.
