It is a common misunderstanding by those who are not familiar with the Craft to call male witches, “warlocks.” I know I have seen new comers to the Craft and they also refer to themselves as Warlocks. They think being called a warlock is, I guess a super witch or cool but really. I have tried to tell them that a male witch is not a warlock, just another witch and then give them the definition of a warlock. They get mad because they don’t like the definition I give them and tell me I am wrong. I think since I am a Hereditary Witch, I should know what I am talking about. So guys, it’s your turn……What I want to know has anyone ever found out you were a witch and then said, “Hey, you’re a warlock?” If so, did you correct them? Also how does it make you feel when you are referred to as a warlock?
I will give you my answer or opinion right now, it makes me very angry when someone refers to our brothers as warlocks. To me it is a personal insult to each and every male in our community and I believe anyone ignorant enough to refer to a male witch as a warlock, should be corrected. I believe if I were a male witch being called a warlock would be fighting words. To be referred to as an oath-breaker, a person who has betrayed their own and done unspeakable acts, that to me would be a slap in the old face. Now guys, I want to hear your take on this subject. You’ve heard mine, now it is your turn.
