Modern Witches Explanations for why saying “females” instead of women is sexist

2.7k Upvotes

To be very clear, I completely agree that it’s sexist. I’m struggling right now because I have two close younger male family members who don’t see it as sexist - and aren’t normally misogynistic.

I’ve tried to explain that it’s derogatory and reduces the sense of humanity when it comes to women, but they laugh it off saying it’s not “technically” wrong. We actually got in a big fight over this and my elderly mother agreed with them, which is quite sad.

I just feel like I’m not explaining it correctly. I know it’s wrong, and I know it’s disrespectful, but clearly the way I’m talking about it isn’t getting through. I was hoping this forum could help me find the words. Would any of the feminist witches out there mind sharing how they would address this?

They’re not bad people, they’re just young and easily influenced. I want to be sure they’re aware of the impact of this kind of language before they hit their stride in the world.

Modern Witches Witches, how the hell do you find a partner in this world?

435 Upvotes

I guess the stereotype of an old hag living in the woods with a cat or a few is not that far from reality.

I’m approaching my 30’s. Spent my early 20’s in a long term relationship with a man who became more and more conservative over the years.

I got out, took time to heal, and was finally ready to look for a partner who’d embrace my witchy side and would smash patriarchy with me.

X dates later and 2 months wasted with a witcher who turned out to be an immature idiot, I’m back at square one.

Most men are so misogynistic, even if they say otherwise. Most of them are either bigots or completely emotionally immature and childish.

I don’t need no manifestations, no spells. I need a hug.

I’m just honestly curious how the hell a modern witch can even find a partner without lowering her standards.

I enjoy my own company, but I want to share my life with someone. Yet, at this point I’m starting to get used to the idea of living alone for the foreseeable future.

EDIT: 🥹🥹🥹 after reading all of your lovely comments and receiving warm virtual hugs, I’m feeling so much better 🥹 I even managed to go on a random date without feeling like a sad loser and just enjoyed it with 0 expectations. I thought to myself “if this goes well, I’ll go on a second date. If not, I will enjoy my own company. I don’t chase”

Modern Witches Wizards against the Patriarchy…yes, it can happen!

My sister and BIL “Billy” were big into the rink activities in my small town. My niece was in figure skating and my nephew into hockey. My niece went up in the figure skating world and my sis and BIL were right there with her. They were equally involved in my nephew’s hockey. They had a backyard rink so the neighborhood kids all played hockey together. There came a time when my niece, now age 13, decided she wanted to play team hockey too, but there was no girls hockey team. So she applied to the boys team. No way, they said. She told her dad that it wasn’t fair.

So my BIL, Billy, went to the boys team and told them since there was no girls team, that she should be able to try out for the one and only team, which was the boys. He told them, Let her play one game and if she can’t pass muster, then so be it. But give her a chance to prove herself. So they let her play one game and of course the boy’s coach thought it would be fitting to let her humiliate herself in public. That would squash any future requests to allow a coed team.

Well, she put on her brothers hockey gear, tied up her pony tail under the helmet and went out on the ice. Something happened to her when she went out there. That cute little figure skating girly-girl we had seen for many years transformed into a pure hockey-playing ball of energy. She ended up skating circles around the boys, backwards and forwards, because of her years of figure skating, not to mention her inherent competitive streak. At the end of the game, the boys voted her MVP! So…She became the only Girl on the boys team that season.

Billy then set up, sponsored and coached a girls hockey team the next season, (the girls themselves nicknamed the team Billy’s Fillies) which he and my sister managed for over 15 years, until my niece was in her 30s. Kudos to my BIL, an unintentional wizard that stood up against the patriarchy to clear the way for his daughter to fly under her own power.

I'm sorry I'm just having a proud thrifter moment. I saw these and the first thing that came to mind was witch shoes, then maybe witch hunter shoes? But they are gorgeous man-made vintage. Charity shopping is one of my favourite pastimes when I get treasures like these.

Modern Witches I am seriously thinking about converting to paganism.

73 Upvotes

I have been lurking here on my other account for quite some while, but I have never felt I had anything to say until today. It's my first post here, so I am very sorry if it doesn't fit.

I was raised in christian household. My parents are pretty liberal but as I grew older I had serious concerns with the powerstructure of the church and started questionin my beliefs as a result, so 7 years ago I left the protestant church and vowed to never join an organised religion again.

That changed today.

I had been playing on a minecraft server with a friend and we're roleplaying as germanic dwarfs preping for Ragnarok. I wanted to build up the world a bit, so I decided to do some research into germanic paganism. I found out that apparently there are still practicing heathens in Germany and it turns out they have a herde (chapter) in my city! And also, they're queer friendly by the looks of things.

Through my activism I have been exposed to a lot of nature religions, especially from south america and I always loved the concept of personifying nature, but they never felt quite like home.

Do I believe there are literal gods watching over us, scheming? Not really, but I know there are forests and oceans and there are thunderstorms and they are obviously more powerful than I am. I like the concept.

It's really close to Yule so I don't know if they got time for me, but I would love to at least look at it. I'm so excited!
