I write about and post some pretty controversial issues in the occult; hence, this site is intended for mature audiences only. I am a student of the occult, not a therapist. And for fuck’s sake, no Crowleyites or MRAs.
People attempting to harass me will be recorded and reported. Feel free to comment; in fact, I welcome comments. Just keep in mind that I moderate comments to keep out the spammers and trolls. Other than that, pretty much anything goes.
If anyone thinks to accuse me of censorship, or that I am only preaching to the choir, let me remind you: this is a female-centric, and feminist site focused on magic(k) as done by women in theory and practice. The oppression of women under patriarchy is not a matter of debate; even if you think I’m being mean, patriarchy is not defensible. The harms of misogyny, sexual harassment, and emotional abuse, as social justice issues, are also not matters of debate. Been there, done that. If you don’t like what I have to say, you know where to put it. Free speech applies to public space. My site, my rules.
Additionally, I claim all my writings under a Creative Commons License. Everything I post has my name and the date it was written, along with sources cited where applicable, so don’t remove my name if you share.
My writings are not representative of any organization, order, or movement.
The First Amendment does not protect you from:
Criticism: If you’re a comedian who makes a bad rape joke, people are allowed to point out that you’re not funny as well as an asshole.
Shame: If you tweet something racist about President Obama on your public Twitter account that’s connected to your first and last name, people are allowed to say that is bad.
The Right to Anonymity: If you take creepy photos of women without their consent and post them on Reddit, people are allowed to try and figure out who you are and post your information on the internet. No one is entitled to anonymity. It’s up to you whether to make it easy for people to find you.
Mockery: Hi, PIKE brothers. Did you deserve to be mocked for your cheesy PG-13 photos? It doesn’t matter. You put yourselves out there, which means your peers (and news outlets) have the right to LOL and comment.
Consequences: If you publicly express yourself in a manner that is offensive, hurtful, or just plain dumb, strangers might contact your friends/family/school/employer and tell them what you did. That is not infringing on your right to free speech; it’s pointing out how you choose to exercise that right. Like the rest of the federal constitution, the First Amendment protects us from the government, not from private companies, which may be able to fire or otherwise punish you for stuff you say, even if it’s outside of work. The laws protecting the free speech of private employees vary from state to state, aside from specifically protected speech like labor organizing.
