That is oh so wrong. And as a side note they forgot that we can make fireballs in our hands and that we always have flying monkies...

Wow, that's scary if you think about it. These are called stereotypes, and they are a sign of a lack of an education on the subject at hand. They can be quite destructive and can get your butt kicked if you say that you are a Witch around the wrong people because of these stereotypes. Keep it low key and you'll be safer because of it.

I tell people like us, don't flaunt around what you are. Remember the Salem Witch Trials? Just because the Trials are no longer going on, doesn't mean that we're not being tried. We haven't had slavery around for a while, but we still fight racism. We have the same thing, if you think about it. You get judged everyday just by how you look...sad really.

The best way to break these myths is not to be them. Satanism gets mixed up with us because of kids* who don't know what they are doing. We have to rise above this list and become better than that. By reading, learning, doing, and living all we can about The Craft.

So just be careful. What you do and how you do them affects people and how they look at you. Remember, you are a Representative of the Craft.

Thank you Mashira for posting this. It's a good reminder of the prejudices that face us.

*What I'm NOT referring to, are the young adults who sit down and take the time to educate themselves before doing anything.

I myself keep my Craft close to heart. If no one approaches the subject then I do not tell of it. Yes witchcraft has been stereotyped even though people view the world as a 'Free World'.
I do not even push my beliefs onto my children as that is their path to find in years to come. If they choose the path of Witchcraft then I will back them 100% no matter what is said.
I let people have their view of myself as they wish, but they will never really know the 'True Me'.

I lived in a small town in Iowa for a long time and there were a lot of closet witches there, we could actually flaunt it there, but I still couldn't help but think that the Catholics were really thinking of how they could get rid of us.
