More Umph please

I resonate with Pr Gregory Alms critique of this essay.

There is good in what is written and food for thought. This cynical statement, in particular, has a ring of truth: "When it comes to understanding the power of virginity or gender differences or anything else related to sex, there’s a good chance we just won’t get it." However, arguments rooted in theological ontology (i.e., maleness) ought to be more carefully explored. In brief, a little more umph would be helpful. In doing so, the ineffability ("it's a mystery") answer is not denuded but heightened.
