Thus, I bear witness:

What this whole uproar is about is 90 minutes out of five days of Con activities. 90 minutes for the women to do what we have done since Con has started.
I was asked to THROW overboard the 4o years of culture and ritual we have developed for women. Where have you been in the past 4o years? Did you develop your own rituals, songs, festivals and culture? If you want respect Politics is not enough. Not at the Con.
Your need to be accepted does not trump the women’s need for their own rituals and culture with each other.I will never betray the ladies. It was so for thousands of years, i have revived it from what was left of it,(4rth century) and adopted it to modern women’s needs.
The words i got sent was the real hate speech, wishing me dead, Old hag ,(not a nice way) calling me a bigot etc. made my one line i have written a year and half ago a blunt line,but not hate speech. My apology was sincere, but it was refused. I don’t know by whom. I don’t think anybody is going to apology to me for daily attacks, the agism, the virulent stone cold assumptions. Lies.
I dont see the Women’s circle and the Mixed circles in opposition at all. Let more people worship the values of the Great Mother the better the world be.
One of my ordained H.Ps. has accepted to lead this special mix of people, and so even in this bad emotional weather,the Dianics contributed to your growing as spiritual beings.
I hope i can go back now and serve the Goddesses without worrying the Ts community banging on our door.
I love you unconditionally.
I surrender to your compassion.
I forgive you.
I feel your pain, your anger, your hatred. I acknowledge your struggle. Yet, though you stick me, I do not bleed. I react, without attachment, only in beauty, in truth, and in love. I offer you a flower, to accept, or not, without expectation of reciprocity.
I pray for your healing, and I pray for the comity of your lineage.
