The term 'Warlock' has been used to describe a Male practitioner of witchcraft for many years.
It has withstood the attempt of some fellow Female dominate Pagan Groups' attempt to demonize it while hypocritically accepting the term 'Witch' which is translated into far more negative meanings.
Not being able to wipe the term 'Warlock' from existence, there is now a push to CHANGE the term 'Witch' into a Neutral Gender Term. However, the Path of MOGYOLOGY will always support the belief that Males are 'Warlocks' and Females are 'Witches'.
MOGYOLOGISTS do not judge those Males that wish to refer to themselves as a 'Witch', but only point to the many forms of entertainment that predominately showcase 'Witches' as Females. If Males are referred to as 'Witches', they are in the minority at most.
Below are just a few works of entertainment that have utilized the term 'Warlock' to describe a Male practitioner of witchcraft.
