religion, white supremacy 

Maybe it's just cause my wife is Jewish and my boyfriend is Muslim, but any White pagan who talks about paganism being automatically more progressive than Abrahamic religions sets off my alarm bells. Deal with your Nazis before making that kind of blanket statement. Any pagan who isn't a coward actually acknowledges the white nationalist roots of many neopagan movements and works hard to fight racism in their religious communities. Don't just pretend the problem isn't there, that gives me no reason to trust you.

@mearcstapa reminds me of that time i saw that fediblock post for yggdrasil dot social that, while entirely correct in its conclusion, seemed to think the name itself was conclusively damning

(for comparison's sake, i have not seen such a post for theosis dot church)

western european paganism has a huge reputation problem

@carcinopithecus Yeah I agree, the instance was shitty and deserved blocking, but I don't think the word Yggdrasil itself is a dogwhistle. If an instance was called something like Othala, that would be an automatic red flag.
