Magick linkage

Sister Georgia wrote a brave post about her experiences with men in the Ordo Templi Orientis, in which she writes “I don’t think we have a problem with punishment or authority in the Order. I think we have a problem with men not understanding the full effect of their actions.” Later she writes, “I found it difficult to be in temple space with a man who had told me I deserved to be raped, and I ended up feeling that I could no longer be a part of the Oasis.” Read the whole post. It’s important.
