From Galina Krasskova:
I’ve noticed that one of the first accusations leveled against polytheists when they call out Pagan privilege, protest attacks on their traditions, challenge disrespectful attitudes, impiety, or micro-aggressions is that we’re “mean.”
Without taking anything away from the unique struggles they go through, in many ways this dynamic is comparable to the situation of Black activists who are told that they’re too angry and need to “get over” things like violence, poverty, injustice, and systemic oppression because talking openly about such things makes Whites uncomfortable. If people agitating for recognition and autonomy bother you maybe it’s time to start considering why and whether you’re actually part of the problem.
And polytheism is, fundamentally, a human rights movement – something we should never forget, since our enemies sure haven’t. Around the world we can watch a precise, ruthless and uncompromising war being carried out against adherents of polytheist and indigenous traditions.
I love Ms. Krasskova! She is like the Martin Luther King, Jr. of polytheism!
