A Webmaster’s Note on the Alleged Comment by Z. Budapest on This Blog

It has recently come to my attention that there’s some controversy over the authorship of a comment left on my blog after the PantheaCon 2011 incident, following the now infamous Lilith Rite. The author of the comment claimed to be  Z. Budapest, providing that name and a link to Budapest’s website. The original post and comment can be seen here.

As the webmaster of this website, I received the comment as it appears below. The IP address of the poster is visible under the website and email address provided.

I would usually not disclose this information, but a prominent figure’s reputation is at stake. I urge people to remember that there’s no way to link an individual directly to an IP address without a court order. One can only learn the approximate location of the computer used and the internet provider.

I will note that at no time have I been contacted by anyone (Budapest or otherwise) to take or deny ownership of the comment.

This struggle has been going since the Women’s Mysteries first appeared. These individuals selfishly never think about the following: if women allow men to be incorporated into Dianic Mysteries,What will women own on their own? Nothing! Again! Transies who attack us only care about themselves.
We women need our own culture, our own resourcing, our own traditions.
You can tell these are men, They don’t care if women loose the Only tradition reclaimed after much research and practice ,the Dianic Tradition. Men simply want in. its their will. How dare us women not let them in and give away the ONLY spiritual home we have!
Men want to worship the Goddess? Why not put in the WORK and create your own trads. The order of ATTIS for example,(dormant since the 4rth century) used to be for trans gendered people, also the castrata, men who castrated themselves to be more like the Goddess.
Why are we the ONLY tradition they want? Go Gardnerian!Go Druid! Go Ecclectic!
Filled with women, and men. They would fit fine.
But if you claim to be one of us, you have to have sometimes in your life a womb, and overies and MOON bleed and not die.
Women are born not made by men on operating tables.

  1. I would first like to say that the commenter is wrong about the ‘castrata’ – castration was not solely performed for the purpose of becoming more like a goddess. It was also performed on singing boys to keep their voices pure, if they were good singers. Also, using a singular article (‘the’ goddess) is factually wrong for the period of time ( 4th century), as it was recognized up until that point that there was more than one goddess.

    This commenter should also learn that every fetus begins its life in the womb as unmistakably female, with proto-ovaries and a vaginal opening. Femininity is the default state of life in the womb before the ‘y’ gene is accessed and causes the fetus to grow male parts. What this means is that men ARE genetically female, and there is no getting around it. (It really means that we are ALL genetically HUMAN. The relevance of a baby’s sex at birth is reduced significantly in light of this evidence.)

    Thirdly, it is inexcusable to step on any group for the purposes of creating a ‘better’ reality for oneself. Period. To say that peaceful protesters ‘attack’ women is also logically false, and failing to recognize the need to be a woman in another person is also logically false for a Dianic Traditionalist.

    Also, let’s not forget that Hitler proposed that the Aryans needed their own culture, their own race, and that it should not be ‘muddied’ by those who were racially different, the Jews, and we know where that went.

    Finally, I am still a feminist. I am also an andronist. I believe that women should not be controlled by men. I believe that men should not be controlled by women. I believe that each person in the world has their own role to play, and that working in a team means getting the job done with focus and passion.

    Name-calling, accusation, gender-role assignment, and selective elitism remove the possibility of a creative solution, which cuts off the lifeblood of our cherished pagan independence.
