....... the same goes for the four horsemen of the apocalypse. In my last story I have one of them as a woman.

In "Good Omens", by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are brought up to (20th century) date as the Four Bikers of the Apocalypse. One of them, known as Red (also known as War) is a beautiful red-haired woman. In the same book there are also what one might call the Four Children of the Apocalypse, one of whom, Pepper, is a spunky eleven-year-old girl.

From Wikipedia:
Quote
The word "shaman" probably originates from the Tungusic Evenki language of North Asia, specifically for the spirit-workers in these cultures.

The word Shaman refers to both male and female spirit workers; the plural is usually Shamans. Yet I've seen oddities such as "shawoman" used for a female shaman, and "shamen" as a plural, from people who should know better - including some who claim to be teachers of traditional Shamanism. After that, it's hard to take seriously anything they say.

Do you think a woman Shaman would be a Sheman?

No.  According to the last Pagan Pride Day I attended, the person in question would be a Shamyn.

Alchymist,
'tis true no matter what a person writes, how out there that person might think he or she is being there is usually someone who has written the same sort of thing. I'll have to get a copy of Good Omens.

Ah, no. Some things are just too terrible to even contemplate. The ears crackle, the eyes bleed, every dog in a ten mile radius howls and covers his ears with his paws; Stonehenge and the Pyramids crumble into dust, civilization trembles, the whole planet wobbles out of its orbit and goes careering wildly through the solar system.......

....... On other days it just rains.

Blessed Be all you shamans, shamen, shawomen, shamyns, shamoons....... :o :o :o :o :o

There were TWO covens of Dianics at the last "Pride" I went to.  My brother, (painfully R. Cath., but also painfully tolerant), still refers to it as the day we attended "yoni fest" with a bunch of womyn...
