‘If God is male…’

Did John Piper make statements to redefine the nature of God (theology proper)? If God is male…’ « Shored Fragments:
Similarly, the 'God-as-masculine' thesis I am discussing here is strikingly revisionist and radical on the central topic of Christian theology, the doctrine of God. The fact that it seeks to claim that it tends to some ethical positions which might be regarded as in line with the tradition is not the point: the doctrine of God is central; gender questions are very second order by comparison. Changing the former whilst claiming continuity on the latter is necessarily a thorough departure from the tradition.
