Gothic Witches


I keep running in to this argument from certain witches: that people like me are letting the side down by dressing in a stereotypical 'witchy' fashion.

I wear mostly black. Black tops, long black skirts (I collect them), and black boots (that said, I do love my brown cowboy boots). And yes I do wear a pentacle, which I suppose adds to the 'goth' look.

Apparently, I should be ashamed of myself for promoting the stereotype, and quickly dress in a more normal fashion.

Bugger that, frankly. I like my black clothes. They are flattering. I feel good in them. I love the goth look, even though I've most certainly toned it down since I had The Boy. Anyway, as I don't always wear black/gothy things, what does it matter? I've always loved to look different. So what?

They keep telling me, these witches, that witchcraft is something that people who are strong, independant thinkers come to. That witches are highly individual folk, who come in all shapes and sizes, all walks of life.

So what is the bloody problem? Leave me and my black velvet alone!

I've spoken to people who are also goth witches, and as someone on one forum pointed out, most modern day pagans aren't exactly farm boys and girls, are they? Indeed not.

So why all the grief from these, presumably fading into the paintwork, witches?

Perhaps it's because, while witchcraft is something I do, a skill that I'm learning/improving as I go along, to them it's their whole life?

I appreciate that witchcraft/Wicca often gets misconstrued and misrepresented. I know there's a lot of 'Witches worship the devil' crap out there. But I don't honestly think me and what I wear is going to have a huge effect on that. If my wearing black makes any one single person think I'm/all witches are evil, then that is one hell of a stupid single person, anyway.

Rant done with. :)
