Goddess Sundays: Goddess is Like a Cat

Goddess Sundays

Where every week we explore feminine aspects of the Divine

Goddess is Like a Cat

In the early 90s I worked in a gay and feminist bookstore, where I discovered and devoured many wonderful books. One such item was called “Cats and Their Dykes.”
 In this book I read, among other things, about misogyny, hatred of female sexuality, and how products are often sold using images of over-sexualized women.


I realized that my up til then hatred of cats had to do with my own fear and self-hatred of my sexual self. I worked on it and went from becoming a dog persun to a cat persun, and then to one who almost worships cats and adores dogs as a symbol of unconditional and never-ending love.
 I believe those who control society want us to hate Goddess the way they taught us to hate cats, as they were hated, tortured, and killed in England and surrounding areas many years ago.
 It’s interesting that people in places like Egypt had the opposite reaction to both Goddess and cats -they worshiped both.
 Ask yourself who has anything to gain by promoting the idea that Goddess is to be killed.
 Ask where the true power might be.

 The answer is in your heart.

Thanks for letting me share 🙂
