That is literally the worst comparison I've ever heard, it's like saying. "oh you did something nice for someone and now they love you, but they didn't naturally like you so it's rape" influence doesn't force anyone to do anything they wouldn't want to do in the first place, it's just a suggestion
i worry for people that need this type of stuff... i mean they should just go with people that will like them for them or at best try a spell to attract someone who will like them for how they are not a specific person. there are billions of people in the world.
So, this hurts my brain, and it may just be that I am a huge idiot, but why would you go to a site where people of different beliefs practice all kinds of magic, if you find anything against "nature" sketchy?
Love spells are not like you see in the movies. You don't wave your wand over them, or sneak them a drink and "poof" they are madly in love with you. Before making a comparison of magick to circumstance, you first must understand magick and the circumstance, not just one or the other. That's like if I said luck spells are like steroids cause they give one an "unfair advantage". When in all reality that's not how they work. Before stating opinion as fact, at least be knowledgable before trying to argue it to death.
I would recommend you go back to basics and learn how magick actually works, separate the fact from fiction, then form your opinion. Without doing your homework your argument seems ill informed, irrational, and non-credible. No one will take you seriously, and I can guarantee your statements made a few people chuckle.
Do you cast spells then, Mari? I suppose you could say that any spells you cast alter or affect nature, so you'd be against any spells by that logic. Affecting the nature of chance is the essence of magic, and affecting your chances of love isn't rape. As said before me, if someone isn't already interested, then nothing will happen. It can be comparable to dressing up for a crush. It simply affects the chance.
