Thelema & Postmodernism

by Frater Enetelecheia Editor's note: This article is a response to this article by Sib. James Gordon which was itself a response to this original article by Brother Sol-Om-On. Good grief.

A Review of: Thelema’s Post-Modern Wasteland: The Need For First Principles In Thelema’s Future by Brother Sol-Om-On

by Sib. James Gordon I thought this article published by Brother Sol-Om-On on Thelemic Union was important enough to warrant a full review.  I don't usually speak critically of other people's writing, but this is very much the exemplar of a piece "full of sound and fury,.

Concerning Heteronormativity and Gender Essentialism in Thelemic Ritual and Communities

by Tau Meithras Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. The last few weeks have seen the Thelemic community shaking even more than the usual: in a stunningly reactionary and gender essentialist move by O.T.O., non-binary individuals are now no longer allowed to perform as Priest or Priestess

Gender is not a Zero-Sum Game
