What We Mean By Rape Culture

I debated over this post. My colleagues genuinely believe it’s wrong to give things like this attention, and maybe they are right. I prefer to expose these things to the light of day. Maybe I’m wrong. I should go ahead an warn that some folks may find triggers in this post, and it does contain [Read More…]

Keeping Calm: Why I Prefer Tolerance

From what tiny scrap of info we have, it seems PSG made a poor judgement call. They have two women’s only rituals this year, and one was run by a Dianic for cis-women only. Maybe if the timing of the two rituals had been switched it wouldn’t have been such a big deal. I don’t [Read More…]

I am somewhere in Southern Illinois and still processing leaving Pagan Spirit Gathering for everyday life. This year, for the very first time, there was a Media Camp, and it was interesting to participate in that and plan for it’s future evolution.

Solstice Fathers

Seems strangely fitting that Father’s Day falls so close to the Solstice. In some ways, fathers are like the sun. When we are young they are larger than life, we literally look up to them, bloom under their approval, and our world rises and sets with them. I’m sitting here at PSG with the sun [Read More…]

PSG: I Have Arrived

I’m blogging from Media Camp at PSG here in Earlville, IL. Some interesting things to know for the trip: Do not plan to stop and sleep in Mattoon, IL. There is a softball competition. There is no fast food in Earlville. If you want grub before you pitch tents grab it when you see it. [Read More…]
