KJV’s Immanent Frames

A while back I became convinced that my glasses were growing bigger. I'd look at myself in the mirror in the morning, sure that someone had substituted larger frames during the night. What was going on?

I eventually came to understand: it wasn’t that my glasses had changed, but my perception of them had. I was meeting more and more people with smaller frames and that trained me (you could say discipled me) to feel as if there was something wrong with my glasses.

If you can do it with glasses, you can certainly do it with other things, like gender. And that’s exactly what’s happening.
