Hey! Well, one of the commentors on my last "post" made a really good question up. He/She asked "what are you supposed to call womyn priestesses?" Well, there's a lot of confusion on this topic, so let me address it:
Think about the term "Doctor"... if you've got a man doctor who's last name is "Smith," you just call hym "Doctor Smith." Right? Well, if you've got a womyn doctor who's last name is "Smith," then you call hyr "Doctor Smith." Is there confusion? No, because Doctor Smith knows if he/she is a man or a womyn. So it should be the same way with priests/priestesses. Except that the word "Father" is a loaded word, carrying with it the oligarchical and patriarchical oppression of 2007 years.
This topic came up on my European Pilgrimage, and frankly, there were a lot of really good ideas thrown around. But did you know something? Up until about 100 years ago, priests in America weren't even called "Father." Instead, they were called "Dom", like "Dom Plarvik" or "Dom Kane." Even the word "Dom," though, has gender bigoted connotations, so the good peoples gathered at the Womynkirk conference had a really great idea. One, gender-neutral honorific for all priests/priestesses. There was a vote, and people thought that the best way to handle this was to use the gender-neuterfying letter "y" in place of the "o". So the movement has agreed that the honorific for all priests & priestesses is to be "Dym."
Thanks for raising this issue and giving me an opportunity to share!
