Still Don’t like the term ‘Fluffy Bunny’

Yesterday I wrote a blog that was basically commentary about a blog that had been brought to my attention, if you’d like a refresher, you can read ‘Don’t Want to be Called a Fluffy Bunny‘. This morning I woke up to a comment on it, from the sites owner.

Good Afternoon,
I must say you have an interesting site here. Shame I haven’t found you before now. I am the owner of the blog you are attacking, Witches Of The Craft. I can tell you have not visited my blog very often or you would know what my blog is all about. It is a daily journal for the Pagan community. I post daily horoscopes, tarot readings, the Runes and also articles from various sources. These articles are posted to cause the Pagan community to stop and think. They are posted to promote a discussion about certain topics that might be of interest to us. I posted this particular article because I am not fond of the term “FLUFF BUNNY” myself. To me, the term gives all of us a bad name. The article was posted to show the stupidity and lameness of the term. I am not in favor of labeling anyone. I have fought for ten years on the internet just to dispel all of the stereotypes associated with Witchcraft. Why would I want to label someone a “Fluff bunny”? I don’t. You took my posting this article totally out of context. Like I said you have not visited my blog enough to even know what it is about. Do not judge me before you know me and what I am about. I am a Witch. I have an excellent reputation in the Pagan community and so does the WOTC (Witches Of The Craft, in case you can’t figure it out!). As far as the glitter and all the other “fancy” stuff, I like to be different. Graphics are my hobby. I have designed several websites and blogs. So to express myself on my own blog is no crime. As far as wearing a pentagram as big as a hubcap, no, not as big as a hubcap but I do wear one. Do you? I wear it not to call attention to myself but I wear it to show my religious beliefs. Is that a crime too? I have fought persecution all my life and it seems like I am doing it again here. Before you make such comments, you should check your facts. Found out what you are talking about and who you are talking about. Like I said the WOTC is a daily journal. The article I posted was to get people to thinking and apparently I accomplished just that.

You have my email address, if you would like to discuss this matter further with me. Unlike you, I am a Lady and have a reputation to uphold. I will not show my true colors like you have here.

I hope this clears the air on this subject. Check your facts next time. I guess somewhere in all the glitter, I should put, “DAILY JOURNAL FOR PAGANS” on my blog for idoits like you.

May the Goddess Open Your Eyes,
Lady Of The Abyss

Yep, Ok. I’m not a lady. I’m still giggling over that one, really, I found it really fucking funny. So I responded back.

Lala: So, what you’re saying is, you don’t want to publicly show your true colors? I don’t have anything to hide from anyone and I’m open about being a judgemental bitch. Also, while I commented on the glitter and sparkles, you’re taking it as a personal attack and again a case of persecution, while I was writing a response to your blog.

Along came another reader, who’d left a comment on the blog that I’d referred to, so she commented as well. 

Fernwise: I’m still waiting for you to post the question I posted on your blog, asking you to cite your sources on both definition of ‘fluff bunny’ – since yours is at odds with most – and who created the phrase. It’s been 20 hours, and you responded to THIS already…..

Damn right, I took it as a personal attack. The WOTC and I are one in the same. You attack it, you attack me. My site was once a group on MSN and it was my baby. Everyone knew it. I worked my ass off and put blood, sweat and tears into it to make it number one. And yes, it was number 1 too! When I do anything I strive to do my best. I am very proud of my site and also very fond of it. It is my haven from the real world. A place to go and have peace and enjoy myself. I don’t understand it what the hell are all of you so angry about? Yourself? The World? People like me? What I am seeing, you are trying to be activists. But you are going about it all wrong. And yes, I know how to be an activist. I know that question would be coming out of one of your mouths.

I have nothing to hide either, my dear. I am just a private person. There are somethings about me that are nobody’s business.

As far as the other question goes, I didn’t answer your question on my site because I didn’t want a fight on it. I try to maintain a certain atmosphere for my readers. A quiet, peaceful environment were they can come and find their friends, learn, do whatever they want. Also as far as that article goes, I did not write it. The author’s name is under the title. Personally, I have dealt with enough fluff bunnies to know they are ignorant. Most of the ones I have met have wanted to cast a spell the same day they showed up at the site. You telling they have to study for a year and a day, they run like hell. They think they know everything about everything. They take one book stand by it as if it was gospel. And don’t dare mention there is a Dark side to magick, they dig a hole and cover themselves up. I don’t see why the word was ever invented to start with. Labeling people, why didn’t they just turn their backs on them instead of inventing a word. Just goes to show you their is bigotry and prejudice in our own Craft. Oh, I forgot, are ya’ll Witches? So what’s your definition of a fluff bunny? Also I would like an answer on why all of you are so angry? What are you out to prove?

Wait a minute. So this isn’t even the author of the piece that I’d been talking about? Nope, turns out it’s only the person who runs the site. Which means, she’s getting THIS bent out of shape because of a comment I made about how the site looked.  This is what I’d said. 

Now right off the bat, I have to say this isn’t a blog that I would choose to read or follow on a regular basis. Why? It’s not even the content that I find off-putting. It’s the Glitteratzi feel of the presentation. The blinking flashing glitter like a neon, look at me, I’m super cool, my back ground is animated cry for attention.  It reminds me of the type of person who wears a hub cap sized pent around their neck, that causes people to gape in amazement and then they cry about religious persecution in their place of business.  Of course, that’s my opinion.

Well. I certainly stand corrected. Don’t judge a book by its cover, unless of course the cover looks like this.

 

Of course, once I saw this, it all made sense. They don’t like the terminology Fluffy Bunny, because that’s their audience and exactly what the site’s admin team is.

You’d have to be to say that All Witches, Wiccans and Pagans are the same thing. Like I said, Fluffy, and let me remind everyone out there, it doesn’t mean ‘Soft and Caring’ it means ‘Willfully Ignorant’

    So we are witches who toss around the Rede? We stand as one? We use sweeping terminology for all witches and pagans regardless of whether or not they’re Wiccan?
    Righto.
