Radical Faerie Annoyances

My 2 roommates are RF's and also "healers" which is basically code word for being a whore. So I guess "healing" has a price. They're nice guys, but as someone who's mother is from India and a father from Mexico, I find it offensive that white men are co opting rituals they know nothing about and whitewashing it so they can light a candle and then go have an orgy with other "fae" folk with annoying yoga names. Am I the only person who finds that movement annoying?

by Anonymousreply 16407/31/2020

No, I find it rather endearing. The yoga stuff is made up and co-opted but Western Europe has a long and storied history with fae and elves.

by Anonymousreply 106/08/2016

SJW's crying about "cultural appropriation" are much more annoying than the hipsters ineptly adopting bits of other people's cultures.

Why don't you stop appropriating white people's culture and technology and go back to a mud hut, OP?

A Mexican man wouldn't marry an East Indian woman. As beautiful as they are, and as kind and thoughtful as they are, Mexican men only go Mexican, Mexican-American, or white. Latino men almost never marry darker, and they certainly don't go for 'exotic' cultures.

So, nice try buddy.

One question for the above comment: ever heard of Salma Hayek, ya stupid fuck?

Yeah, I myself have had experiences with the Rad Fae movement and they *ARE* annoying as fuck. You are correct in how their being prostitutes is hilariously explained as “healers”. Many don’t work and bounce around from commune to commune, participating in many “heart circles” and going on about magic. As with most New Age assholes, they are annoying!

R10, I think R7 is stupid too but a) this thread is three years old and they probably won’t even see that you bumped it and b) Hayek’s dad is Lebanese, and her mom is Mexican so you aren’t refuting their assertion regardless.

They are not prostitutes. They are Sacred Intimates. And it is only right that they should be compensated for their work, n'est-ce pas?

It's one thing to be judgmental, OP, if one brings all of one's education, experience, and intelligence to the assessment. But to be ill-informed and judgmental... now, that's annoying. That's the essence of Trumpism. And the essence of you, too, it seems. White men have been involved in nature and Earth based spirituality for thousands of years. Wicca. Celtic Druids. Etc., etc. The Radical Faeries are just part of a line of tradition stretching throughout history.

Just because someone thinks it’s utter bullshit and calls out someone for cultural appropriation, doesn’t mean it’s the essence of Trumpism. Not everyone cares about your crunchy way of life. And “sacred intimates”? Yeah. Sacred. Nothing says sacred like taking PayPal.

OMG yes! They’re very very affectionate and playful. But I’m not into the whole “woo” and Goddess crap. Most of them are really nice, but I’ve met several who were very mentally ill. The same issues affecting the gay community are affecting them too, the older faeries annoyed by the new trendy wokeness and acceptance of all, the younger folks embracing their trans faerie’s identities and fighting alongside for acceptance. It’s a fraternity almost. But harmless.

by Anonymousreply 4303/10/2019

Mental illness. Yes. Lots of emotional immaturity, too.

None of the Faeries that I've known ever did very well with rules because rules demand something of you. And they find rules just too confining. These guys live totally in the moment for the now. Being a Radical Faerie gives them license to abandon every norm, even bathing, and embrace every fleeting desire.

But they are not out starting wars. They do not campaign to take away the people's human rights.

*sobbing* omfg no to all of this. Whose history? What 'line'? Spirituality from where? I can't believe I just read any of this.

'Celts' is a made-up catch-all to describe no-one and historians mostly concur a group by that name never existed. Historians do mostly agree however that the Druids of the British Isles were dumbfuck MRA cultural gatekeepers of the worst kind as well as nasty POS witch-killing torturers who gave not one fuck about 'the Earth'. Wicca is another story being nu-Age commercialised American shit reworked from esoteric Saxon grimoire and having nothing to do with the natural ancient world or the locus Gods of Europe. Radical Faeries are too young to even have a tradition and seem to be mere LARPing hippies.

I find them to be the biggest jokes of the community. They remind me of the Cockettes, in the sense of the whole communal thing. Except the Cockettes were and are amusing. Here in Portland, there are several “houses” all over the city of various faeries and their neverending potlucks. One can’t keep up with their name changes, and if you’re attracted to cis men only, the you have offended the (younger people’s) sensibilities of inclusion, because God forbid you can’t control your sexual preferences. Yes, showering is optional. There is always a faerie or two who is literally traveling all over the USA, grifting from house to house and getting rides from others to get to their destination, bartering with sex work, “energy healing” or whatever excuse gets them to their destination. They don’t have monogamous relationships at all, because that one person they’ve met for 3 minutes (like a bath house hookup) could be “the one” to give them an “exchange of powerful energy” and whatever STD’s they’re carrying. So yeah, like most typical men, they think with their dicks and basically only care about getting off and then waxing poetically about all the Goddess energy that transpired. Many of them yes, as has been mentioned above, are mentally ill people who are off their medications (or undiagnosed) and need serious help (by human standards. According to the faeries these “special spirits” just need a hug and a bran muffin). Lots of them have addiction issues (heroin or meth) and it seems like their fellow faeries remain neutral on actually getting people the help they need.

I think the original source of how they began with activist Hardy Hay at the realm, I believe it was a purer movement back then. He wanted it to be a men’s only space. Period. It was a place where the femme gay men could be themselves. Then in the last 20 years, it began to change and the infighting began as women and FTM men started to demand to be recognized and included. Separate events and gatherings (from what I have read and heard) had to be created to satiate these entitled people that barged into a movement. Still to this day, the fighting continues.

Personally, I find the entire movement now in 2020 to be an absolute joke.

OP, being multi-cultural while appropriating my English language does not give you a right to confabulate to create fake threads while not knowing the word is "whose."

Right on, R130. Confabulation is not liberation!

R128 hits the nail on the head. They are EVERYTHING he said and more! Grifters in a glittery tutu, scabby lips, and BLARING B.O. I knew OF a faerie who actually had money (thru his older husband) and the other faeries were so insanely jealous, they repeatedly took shits all over their stoop, and lawn.... I couldn’t stop laffing

They’re annoying and gross. Wouldn’t want to wear anything from them if offered. No thanks. Any bugs I’m hosting are my own.

The earthy, natural sex that I assume these people kind of excites me. Exchanging bodily fluids in a natural way is attractive, as are thoughts of beards, breath, and bush. But the BO would be a deal breaker if it’s too bad.

I like some people's b.o., as long as they're not grossly overweight with terrible diets (that gets proper stinky). I'll dive into a dude's pits if his smell turns me on.

Here's some soothing reading for OP. I think radical faeries will press just as well.

This guy was on his way to SF where he joined the Radical Faeries and founded the Cockettes. His story is just as interesting after that but I’ll leave it to someone else to tell it. Any eldergays knew him? Had him?

R140 The Radical Faeries weren’t founded until 1979 by Gay activist Harry Hay. The man above in the photo was known as Hibiscus (George Edgerly Harris III) founded the Cockettes in San Francisco in 1969. The Cockettes were male and female and gender-bending as performance artists and all around crazy. The Radical Faeries sought a cis-gender mens only space, which it was for a very long time until the last several years.

The Cockettes have a great documentary out about them as well.

R141 I may have gotten his Cockettes and Radical Faeries history backward. He later came back to work for Roy Cohn and died of aids.

Cultural appropiation is just an excuse to be racist towards whites while acting like a victim. Can you imagine if OP's roommates acted like rabid sjws everytime he "co-opted" something white people made like jeans, driving a car or using electricity. Perpetually offended puddle of kitten piss OP.

OP trust your intuition on this. Don’t let anyone trick you into anything that feels off in the slightest way. The healers don’t seem to want to heal but want to get laid. faeries and elves have been part of European ancestral history from before christianity. There’s that which doesn’t have to do with sex. Sex can be something sacred/spiritual but that’s between souls with a strong connection and it will feel healing. Go with your guts OP. An orgy is just an orgy.

It’s a movement that started for gay men on the fringes of our “community”, but has instead as of 2020 been overrun by a bunch of mentally ill men, trans men, and women who have turned these spiritual retreats into some sort of primal scream therapy community. I have yet to meet a single stable one here in Portland, who wasn’t a fucking hot mess.
