I think i actually prefer the Vintage Sleaze approach to paganism to the New Ageie ‘Gerbera’ one.
In fact, there have been quite a lot of posts here about the sort of dicky, annoying New Age men, right? Most memorably Bad Guru.
Courtesy of men such as the Find My Goddess Guy (i’m not linking, lol) and the Yod-Father, there have been screeds of hellishly amusing and evocative comments re such sleazebucket men. You know, guys who interpret the King of Wands in a spread as being their cue to get, well, phallic.
BUT what about the naff, awful women attracted to the New Age realms? It’s not just males who use it as an excuse to morph into complete twits or access their inner sleazy git. Let’s be fair here: no gender bias.
Lady Crab and I have split annoying New Age woman into two categories:
* Gerberas – they decorate a lot with this flower, even their website or brochure design, wring their hands a lot and like to pass off their laziness, incompetence or plagiarism as them being more Zen or “sharing the light”. They have secretly really intense, awful crushes on angels or aliens and are often raving hypochondriacs. In their past life they were always the Empress of Atlantis or Hatshepsut. They don’t usually have real psychic powers but they say they do and cover up the lack-there-of by sighing a lot, nodding empathetically or blaming YOU for not being clear enough for them to “read.”
* Pterodactyls – they are like a Gerbera lady but super-furious. They stride the earth looking to hex every potential lover not “evolved” enough to get involved with them. They’re often involved with married guys and spend an inordinate amount of time checking out the charts of his wife hoping she’ll be committed to a lunatic asylum and considering it to be a karmic relationship. They wear big crystal jewellery, love ritual and often turn up at big New Age functions where they get ultra-competitive with other Pterodactyls over whose got the most aligned chakras or channelling the most enlightened being.
Note that i did not say New Age Bitches out of respect to Bitch Goddesses such as Hecate & Lilith.
Anyway, what are your thoughts on this?
