You would never openly call someone an evil Jew or a dirty Muslim

so why is it ok to call someone a wicked witch?

  • No I would never call them that openly or privately.


    Witch by definition can mean not only one that practices witchcraft, but it can mean an ugly, or mean old woman. I probably wouldn't use that phrase anyway, unless discussing Wizard of Oz. Not because I take issue with the word or meaning, but it's just not something I would normally say.

  • i'm guessing that alot of people do not consider Wiccan to be a "real" religion. Around here it's seen as a phase
    I'm assuming that they're referring to the Wizard of Oz witch

  • It isn't unless you are watching the Wizard of OZ pehaps Wicked Bitch is a better term, or how about we just realize that our stupid choices are what caused all of the drama? Call me crazy, and grab a mirror! LOL

    Interesting, considering it's federally recognized and protected.
