Blogs, Discussions, and more pagans who don’t get satire.

So, a blog that I found rather hysterical and funny, called A Pseudo-Scientific Classification of the Fluffy Bunny seems to have been picked up and discussed over on PaganSpace, here. Now, it’s my opinion that we have yet another case of people, or fluff, who don’t quite understand satire.

I realize that this concept might be too damned difficult for the modern fucktard to understand, therefore, before we go any further, I’d like to supply a quick definition.

Satire: (Noun)

1. The use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.

So, now on to highlighting some of the responses that this blog got in the PaganSpace discussion.

Crock Pagan: To me this is the pot calling the kettle black because I’ve seen one to many pagans who indulge in their fantasy of what witches are that are not from works of fiction in pop culture but literature on supposed witches. Wicca itself is bathed in Romanticism. This is probably more harmful and delusional than the author’s assertions of the obvious. These people are taking from works of fiction, but its not hollywood.

I don’t see anything wrong with psycho drama or using fiction. However, a fluffy bunny to me is a person stuck in the Romanticism, believer of pseudo-science/history, thinks Wicca is “ancient” or something similar, and basically believes every “white lie” popular authors use. (Matriarchy, all goddesses are three fold or moon and so forth.) They also tend to refuse to learn or be corrected. These people that I’ve seen are not newbies to paganism either. They usually are science deniers.

Former Fluffwad: As a former fluffwad (love the term!) I think Vagabond need to get their fluff on and STFU.

That was just a sampling of the comments. What really makes me giggle, to tears really. Someone was so inflamed at the original blog, that they felt the need to write their own blog about Fluffy Bunnies. It can be found, here.

Excerpt from blog:

It’s not a term I use often but it is a term I have been called recently and I’ve seen a few people use it. I’ve been trying to figure out why we would have this term. For the more New Age people I’d just say “white lighters” and though some of them have funny beliefs, they seem to be ok people. Like I said some of their beliefs I disagree with and I will not cater to their Romantic fantasies, but they’re usually pretty harmless.

So what I really think the whole thing boils down to, someone’s been called fluffy on more than one occasion. Now, they feel the need to get their panties twisted whenever they see someone post about it, and, it gets their goat enough, to feel the need to blog. Oh well, I say, at least the blog, that was meant to be ‘satire’ inspired someone to do something…. even if that something was to just whine.

That’s it for this one. Again, I welcome you all to send me a story or a vocabulary term for all the times you’ve ever played with the fluffy, the bunnies, and the asshats.
