I'm the giggle and pop corn type.  Luckily its rare I come across anything really tasteless, such as you described.

I find it amusing, however like yourself I do take a mild exception to anything similar to what you described. It's the stereotype we've all grown up with and it's kind of been accepted as a kind of anti-hero character.
 
I like the film Practical Magic, and an old Witchfinder film called Warlock. The last one is a bit of a negative take, because of an evil "Warlock" from mediaeval times come forward in time. Good film nevertheless....LoL.

This time of year there are plenty of green faced warty witches in the media and in the public consciousness. How does this affect you?  Speaking for myself, I figure it makes good protective cover since most of us actually look pretty ordinary, at least most of the time!  But I know some folks grit their teeth at witch stereotypes.

The only time I made a fuss was when our local market had a witch hanging in effigy by the register, kicking and growling.  I politely told the manager that torture really isn't cute or humorous and people who practice it, usually to help folks, could be upset. It was gone next time I shopped there.  But usually I have a sense of humor about the hag image the media promotes.

How about you?  Do you think the negative stereotypes add to our discrimination and other problems in the Craft community or do you giggle, pop some corn, and watch Hocus Pocus?

I wish my Great Aunt Betty was still alive.  She was born in the late 1800's and she read Tarot cards, but she would never read for us children.  When she would visit my aunt's house, she would forage up in the hills and come back with what we all thought were weeds.  There is much I would like to ask her now.  Maybe I have a pinch in my blood.

The P'burg Mall is where I bought my paintings!  I remember Dan being there for a signing but I had a wedding that day and couldn't make it.  If you still live in the area, we are practically neighbors!  Small world!

No. Well, yes in one respect; "Sephiroth" is plural; the singular is "Sephira". But there are, in fact, as you say Angel, eleven Sephiroth, although a great many quabalists seem to be extremely uncomfortable with this. They tend to mention Da'ath only in passing, or to ignore it entirely - yet, there it is, splat in the middle of the Tree, as if to say "Okay, ignore me all you want, but here I am; what are you going to do about it?" I would even say that perhaps Da'ath is the most important Sephira of all.

Very nicely said... as I understand it, Da'at(h) is a part of traditional Jewish Quabala, beceause Keter is unreachable and unknowable.  As such you're still left with 10.  It's essentially the difference between Jewish Quabala, and Hermetic Quabala, though there have always been three primary streams so it's hard to treat Quabala(cabala, qubala, Kabala Kabalah, Kabbalah, etc) as a single volume reference; it appears to be dynamic, rather than static.

Anyone interested in the Pendle or Lancashire witches? They did their thing nearly 100 years ahead of Salem.
