    I see that you hate that word. It's too bad you're taking it so personally, when I'm not even using it to insult Wiccans or pagans in general. I never thought I would get in trouble for using that word. Now I know.

     It's meaningful. I know what the word means. A Wiccan friend of mine I knew in college never got offended by that word. She used it proudly too, so your angry reaction to me boggles my mind.

     I'm more surprised than anything. I can't believe I got singled out over this, when I wasn't even going out of my way to upset Wiccans or pagans. I have nothing against your religion either.

        I've been honest with you and all you've been is rude and condescending. I admitted I was wrong. I gave you the context.

         So you know what? Fuck off. If you can't accept the fact that was raised with the word differently, then that's too bad. I told you I'm sorry. I don't know what else you want from me, so please just leave me alone.

          Gjetost  is down the well?

          Fuck off
          And to you too!

          All you had to say was that you understood that you had insulted the spiritualism and religion of a lot of people, and then NOT pile on all the garbage which totally mitigated the apology.
          Then you had to drag out the good 'ol My black friend (pagan) says defense!Holy Hannah.

          It wasn't a difficult nor unreasonable thing to ask. But you just WON'T.

          Have a great night, and feel very good about acting like a complete git.
          :) You really earned it.

          i live in the south. do you think there are words here that folks use cavalierly and sometimes not even in a malicious way that are still unacceptable words?

          essentially your argument for being ok with using the word 'witch' is the same argument that could be made for using the word 'nigger', by idiots who think that's ok just cuz it's something they heard hundreds of times used cavalierly and benignly while growing up.

          do you think it's ok to refer to someone as the n-word?

          if your answer is no, then i submit that you shouldn't be ok with referring to someone as a witch either.

          and you said 'i'm sorry' but then you qualified it; that's not a true 'i'm sorry'. true apologies are unqualified.
