As a practitioner myself, though I identify as Lokean Heathen, I find the growing misrepresentation of pagans, wiccans, and witches highly disturbing. There’s a reason why people are so afraid of us. It’s because of the images of witches concocted throughout history in order to create mass hysteria, but present day pop culture simply aids in that fear. Though I proudly wear my pentacle, I know many who would deem it dangerous to do so because of the lack of understanding.
That awkward moment when you think of something odd/dirty in public then really hope there isn’t a telepath in the room
I do this all the time.
The past two days have been awful, but today is Woden’s Day, better known as Wednesday in the modern world. Every Wednesday I babysit my 4-year-old niece. She has good days and bad ones like most kids, but watching over her is often one of the biggest highlights of my week. Even bigger than that though is how when I walk into my sister’s house, the cat who I had to give up to live where I am now comes out and greets me, then sits next to me and purrs as I pat him. He also glares with loathing at my laptop, but that’s okay.
