It’s been a minute since I wrote this. Not so long that the word “hipster” wasn’t already derogatory, but maybe long enough that the word “foodie” was more annoying to me than offensive. Oh, how times have changed.
Mark Driscoll is no longer part of Acts29. I don’t know if Acts29 still exists, or if Vintage Church in Raleigh still exists. I don’t know if any of these people are still hung up on gender roles. But I do know that many communities just like it keep popping up all over the country, and I do know that I still can’t stand it.
As for the word “foodie.” It’s awful. Stop using it. Stop.
“It’s, like, okay for you to like gross shit. But I’m something of a foodie. So.” (Italics indicate upspeak, which is not, by the way, gender-specific. Stop being sexist.)
