Do you "look down" on other Pagans or Witches who don't believe or practice in a similar way to you, or feel that you are "better" than other Witches or Pagans? Do you feel that you have the right to tell another Witch or Pagan that he or she isn't doing something "right" or that they aren't a "real" Pagan or Witch?
Be totally honest, even if you do. Answer anon if you feel the need to.
(This came up because of a video I watched from a Witch that I follow on YouTube. She's been getting crap from not only those who aren't Witches or Pagans, but also OTHER Witches and Pagans.)

My believe is just that, MINE. I don't expect anyone else to believe the same. I value other witch's opinions, especially those of you who have been practicing longer than I have. I've only been at this for 10 years (give or take). I still have a lot to learn.
As for other Pagan (you notice that I always capitalize that) religions ... I respect their beliefs as long as they respect mine. In most cases, even if they don't. We each have our own paths. Besides, I'm an avid learner. I like to learn about other things and that includes other religions. For instance, right now I am looking into Kabbalah and I recently bought a book on I Ching. Interestingly both have to do with numbers.
HOWEVER! I do NOT respect "fluffy bunnies" that ask idiotic questions like "what kind of spell do I do to get the power to freeze time?"

I personally do not, but with any religious belief you get those who feel that others are not true
to the faith bc they do not do it this way or that...
I have seen articles written by other Pagans/Witches both male and female and have found that
there are a few who do either look down on, frown upon, even judge others who pull from different
paths to incorporate it into what they believe...
But not as many as I have seen IRL and online of other religions doing it to others of their own faith...
