Active Sexual Consent (and Dissent)

With examples like Tristan and isolde, no wonder we're mixed up about consent.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Since Jonathan Korman wrote about consent, I’ve been giving it some deep thought. Including the comment by Niki Whiting on how women need to be educated about consent. And I’ve been thinking of it in context of the freak out in the atheist community [Read More...]

Beyond Roses Red and Roses White (Possibly NSFW)

babalon

Writing can become a bad habit, and a simple question can set loose a torrent of words. So when Niki Whiting asked me what I thought of Peter Grey’s The Red Goddess last night, I gave a long and complex answer when a simple one would do. Now that all the words are just sitting [Read More...]

The Egg and Mary Magdalen

This incredible painting of the Magdalen by Richard Stodart is not only available as a print, but the original is up for sale.

Through the years I have been asked, especially by people outside of my religion, what stance if any that the heathen religion had on the issue of abortion. Unlike other religions (such as Christianity), there is nothing that specifically prohibits abortion within our religious worldview. [Read More...]

Being Yourself – Not Always The Easy Path.

How much damaging morality are we bringing with us from former religions? Is this a good or bad thing? What can we do about it? Kindreds tend to be our chosen family. But how much power should we give them, when it comes to them judging our personal life? I do believe there is an interesting conundrum, here: follow the gods when they lead, or be comfortable where you are, and try to ignore their summons? Deal with censure in your Kindred, or ignore what you are led to do? [Read more...]
