The imagery doesn't bother me at all, there is however a bit in the British news at the moment about children being beaten, some have been muedered and they're blaming witchcraft, now that frightens me..
I don't know how to share the page, perhaps Drac ?

You make a good point Canis, but suffice it to say that you'll always get those who will try to capitalise on things they know little to nothing about; With that comes those who get the misinformation because of it, not entirely their fault then.

I don't give it much thought. Most people are smart enough to know that the stereotypical portrayal is make believe. I do get a little irritated at shows that try to portray modern Wicca/witchcraft and don't bother to get their facts straight. Those are the shows that, imo, feed into the misinformation concerning Wicca and witchcraft.

I don't think people relate the two because real witches aren't green and warty so people cant do the relative connection. I think that if I told someone I was a witch they would laugh at me simply because I am not an old green geeser. Although not many people believe in "real" witches anyways.

How do I react to the imagery?

Well I have to laugh at the thought that they are all celebrating one of the oldest pagan holidays ;D
Symbolism and everything, makes me almost giddy. And the ugly plastic hags they have are funny, but in truth I think it is just another western mutilation of what once was a holiday, celebrated in hundreds of different ways by most religions.

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.
