Does the ESV Manipulate the Text of Scripture to Defend Complementarianism?

Sociologist Samuel Perry, who holds a ThD from Dallas Theological Seminary, has argued in the Journal of the American Academy of Religion (June 2021) that the ESV betrays a complementarian agenda. He adduces multiple passages, from Genesis 3:16 to Romans 16:7, to demonstrate his thesis. Have the ESV translators violated professional or theological protocols to “establish transitivity” with their complementarian views, as Perry alleges? All major passages at issue will be examined.
