MALES ARE WARLOCKS & FEMALES ARE WITCHES

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.

Mistoffelees you're right on point.

I have always believed that part of being pagan is to celebrate the meeting of opposites in mutual trust and respect. How can that happen when the terms used to describe those opposites are scrapped and replaced with "neutral gender" ones?

Karen, I totally agree.

The traditional understanding of this matter that I was taught it that both males and females can be warlocks, at least one etymology derives the original word warlock is from Whorl meaning knot or spiral  the name came to mean"traitor" [with the implication "traitor to the Christian religion"] there are certainly parallels to this etymology in several of the Scandinavian languages. From my point of view this is not merely a matter of academic quibbling because as pagans we are utilizing the thought forms built up over thousands of years by previous generations, it is therefore important to use the terms correctly for example in the Anglo-Saxon language there is certainly a word meaning "male witch" etymologically unrelated to Warlock!

cluthin drew, at this point, many of us don't really agree with the etymology or what is being taught pertaining to the title Warlock.  Society has taken not only words, but symbols as well and has changed the meaning of both throughout history.  We are Warlocks and we are male practitioners of witchcraft/magick.  The term "male witch" is such an oxymoron to me.  It's like saying "female king".

Many males are satisfied with their male witchery...some do leave & become warlocks and this is a first...I never heard of a female warlock before!

the proper term is Magician, a Warlock is a male magician who has betrayed his coven. And yes Witch means Wise Woman.

Comment by Lord MOGY on September 17, 2017 at 3:16pm

@Chudo...LOL!  I'm sorry, but whenever someone posts something like that I crack up.  A Warlock is a male that practices witchcraft/magick.  I'm sorry you drank the kool-aid and is now programmed or brainwashed to post what you did.  Let me guess, you read the first thing that came up on a Google Search or you're into Wicca right?

ok Hypocrite, learn to read and do your research. and im not into Wica, but you must be one

Comment by Lord MOGY on September 17, 2017 at 3:29pm

@Chudo, ummm, well thanks for your comment, but I don't prescribe to it.  I'm sure you can find some female dominate pagan blog you can have fun spreading that BS.  Don't be mad, I'm just saying what you posted is funny to me.  No harm done.
