I haven't read this one but it's been in my amazon cart for awhile! I heard a talk by a herbalist in my community who referenced this book in talking about this exact topic -- how feudalism was an essential component of that shift.

A book I have read is Medical Bondage:

It's specifically about enslaved women in america and how white american society viewed these sisters as human capital (and human capital generators). It's not the exact topic either but super interesting.

I also recommend the podcast For The Wild by Ayana Young. She interviews a lot of awesome experts in areas of social justice, environmentalism, feminism, etc. I can't think of a podcast on this specific topic, but they talk a lot about remnants of patriarchy surviving today and issues around it.

Just to add my two cents. I scrub first. My skin gets irritated if I scrub again right after shaving.

Also, exfoliating gloves or towels are AMAZING! Better than a loofah because they're easier to clean and dry, so bacteria doesn't build up on them. And as opposed to some body scrubs, they won't clog your drain. I use them with face wash when scrubbing my back/shoulders and a moisturizing/milky body wash on my legs/rest of my body. Also, with the towels, you can get different strengths. So I have a medium strength one and a hardcore one. The hardcore one is great to use on my legs before I shave. You'll get a way better shave from properly exfoliating before you shave.

This is what I'm talking about if you haven't heard of them: exfoliating gloves and exfoliating towel

Also, I never really liked shave gel, but this Cremo Cream shaving cream changed my life. It is so freaking good

Allright, You sound a lot like me.

Freya helped guide me for a bit. Bast and Lilith are there as well.

I also deal with Kali. She has pushed me farther and harder than every other goddess in my repertoire. She is however, a goddess of action. She will help guide you through your issues. You may wish to approach her, or Durga. I would start reading about her. I suggest the 10 mahavidyas, if you can find a copy. I can probably help find you copy if you need me to.

Well if there was a day to support yourself & celebrate your craft, today would be it! I would vote yes to a new deck for sure.

This is a good group! If you're interested in this at all, the creator of the group also wrote a book that has more information and is a good read.

Magic for the Resistance: Rituals and Spells for Change by Michael M. Hughes

Since you got the obvious one out of the way, I'll add Diana Wynne Jones, most known for the original Howl's Moving castle book series. For the older, witchiest readers I'd highlight "A Sudden Wild Magic" a less child-friendly story about a coven of new age practicioners facing off an attack on their dimension.

For the sci-fi fan, A Door into Ocean written by science witch Joan Slonczewsky

and most stories by Vonda mcIntyre many of which can be found online (in googling this I just learned she passed this spring :( )

She writes about biology, aliens, sex, centaurs, alien sex, genetic manipulation and marvelous winged sapients. There is a peculiar wistful melancholy to her stories. A good starting point is the short story "Of Mist and Grass and Sand" that segues into the novel Dream Snake, a story about a wandering healer and her three snakes with various "medicinal" bites.

Oh! Sorry, I assumed your nationality. My sincere apologies. If it'll help, and I honestly don't know if it will because I'm uncertain which dialect of Spanish is used here - here is Scott Cunningham's book I mentioned above in the Spanish language.

Laine Taylor has a good theory. Starts off a little slow, but is good.

>The Celts weren't the only ones with solar/lunar calendars.

I never suggested they were.

>The lunar cycles were just named after the chores that had to get done that season.

I'd love to hear some examples. 'Cleaning & Seedlings Season' for your spring kinda thing-?

I'm reading this book right now and while it's decent, it also jumps all over the place re: time & geography that I get things mixed up.

Just looked it up & yeah so Yule's origins are actually Germanic/Norse mythology, not ancient Celtic or Druid. But the ancient Celts & Druids (of Gaul/France & Britain) predate Norse viking mythology, so I mean anyone could make an argument that ancient Celtic paganism influenced Norse paganism centuries later, but eh. Like you said, it's not like any culture gets dibs paying attention to seasons & lunar cycles. And we know so little about the ancient Celts that even if there are some leftovers hidden inside Yule (which then got hidden inside Christianity), it's kinda a "fuck it, whatever" scenario lol

As for the song, I have no idea. It was published in England in 1780 when any/all forms of modern Paganism were still demonized. It could've been created by a totally Christian group that had no idea there was a reference to Yule & passed around for centuries before it got printed by the English.

...not sure how you took the leap that the song lyrics depicting daily gifts from December 25th to Jan 6th represent seasons. I'd guess it was just one of many instances of the romantic era springing up.

Edit: apparently if anything, Christians have suggested the song actually hides key tenants to Christianity (not Paganism) while they were persecuted (which they weren't at the time & it's totally false for that reason among others). Seems like it was just a folksy memory game song.

You may also be interested in seeking out the gnostic gospels. One claims to be from Mary and provides a direct female succession. I'm not a catholic myself, but I gained that nugget of info recently while reading The Origin of Satan by Elaine Pagels. She's written a couple books on the gnostic gospels that I intend to pick up next.

What do you mean by such? What are you referring to?

Staying inside the patriarchy/Matriarchy dichotomy I'd say that the social organization before the drastic change aprox. 6000 years ago was predominantly matriarchic.

But without a state apparatus to coerce people into it...

Remnants of those matriarchies can be found all over the world.

Are you familiar with Heide Göttner-Abendroth and her work?

This is where what I know about Matriarchal societies comes from.

I have no problem with either Matriarchal societies, nor patriarchal ones, for that matter, as long as they respect the freedom of the individual...

Both can't do that when they become statist (coercion hierarchies).

Fascism doesn't and neither does or can Socialism.

There’s a book about this! It’s called Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. It’s a story about two sisters that use this text. Highly recommended!

u/Dngrsone · 6 pointsr/WitchesVsPatriarchy

They are available on Amazon. They come in either black with blue lighting or the above brown. The black one is significantly more expensive...



Edit: there seem to be quite a few varieties, some pretty darn cheap, and likely to be knockoffs of questionable quality.

I can see myself taking one of them apart and building it into a desk or table top (or a couch arm!)... the key is getting the right amount of space between the device and the phone.

u/michaelad567 · 1 pointr/WitchesVsPatriarchy

The book Sex, Time and Power gets into this and the types of ways women shaped human evolution. Such a good read and it really changes your perspective on history.

u/wyrdtothewise · 3 pointsr/WitchesVsPatriarchy

did anybody else read Kissing the Witch like... 20 years ago? it's basically this. cinderella gets with the fairy godmother. rapunzel decides to stay with the witch (who was acting like... more than her stepmother to say the least). it kind of changed my life. i can't believe they had it in our middle school library lol

hm looking around now, i see that the lady who wrote "Room" wrote Kissing the Witch.

The left and right images are the Before Tarot and After Tarot, respectively. Which I realized I need to own after making this meme.

This is a page from R. Crumb's illustrated Book of Genesis. He's got a commentary section at the end where he talks about Savina Teubal's book Sarah the Priestess: The First Matriarch of Genesis

Zoos are not there to protect animals. They are there to amuse humans.

>Many animals cope with unstimulating or small environments through stereotypic behavior, which, in zoological parlance, is a repetitive behavior that serves no obvious purpose, such as pacing, bar biting, and Gus’ figure-eight swimming. Trichotillomania (repetitive hair plucking) and regurgitation and reingestation (the practice of repetitively vomiting and eating the vomit) are also common in captivity. According to Temple Grandin and Catherine Johnson, authors of Animals Make Us Human, these behaviors, “almost never occur in the wild.” In captivity, these behaviors are so common that they have a name: “zoochosis,” or psychosis caused by confinement.

Instead of doing "more", we must do less -- by not endangering these animals in the first place.
