EPISODE 3: Bisexuality and Paganism. What’s the link?

October 19, 2009

This is a pagan response to my previous post on bisexuality. I wanted to take a moment to note how bisexual issues and issues of sexuality relate to paganism in that everything within many pagan ideologies (especially views of deity) is gendered, polarized, and paired in a heteronormative way. I speak mostly of deity, but we can find this in the gendering of the elements, astronomical bodies, herbs, colors, etc.

This episode is meant to get my fellow pagans to start thinking about how heteronormativity is reflected in the various pagan religions and how this both creates and reinforces homophobia and biphobia. Is there a solution?...

I also preview future episode topics. Feedback, questions, and discussion is very much appreciated!
