First of all, I’m grateful that Her.meneutics blog continues to seek what is good, beautiful, and healthy in male-female friendship. I have appreciated that this blog has continued to have an open mind about friendship between the sexes instead of fearing the phenomenon altogether. I also have greatly appreciated that Her.meneutics continues to approach the subject with care and discretion. I also appreciate Anna Broadway’s wrestling through inevitable minefields associated with this subject.
With great interest I read her as she respectfully engaged Jonalyn Fincher and me. Primarily, Broadway directed her focus toward my good friend Jonalyn, but I thought I would add a few clarifying responding thoughts. As I read Anna’s contribution I thought about our unique journeys in attempting to integrate sexuality and male-female friendship. This is such a vast, deep and complex subject and phenomenon.
Here are a couple of thoughts to clarify.
