Question: Do the Late War and the Book of Mormon share a similarity in describing women as "tender"—prey to the lusts of men?
The uses of tender between the Late War and the Book of Mormon are different. One speaks of women in the sense that they are effeminate and the other speaks of them as they are delicate and easily broken. The Book of Mormon speaks of women as equals before God. They are not, as the critics put it, prey to the lusts of men.
