I'm in the broom closet and am trying to figure out how to tell my parents about Wicca. They are average Christians and slightly conservative, and perfectly 'respectable' people. When I sounded my mother out about Wicca, she muttered something about rock and tree worshipping, crazy, tattooed hippies. I try to have an open mind and don't have anything against tattoos or hippies, but in general, do pagans tend to be what people like my close minded parents consider unrespectable and not fit to associate with, or is that just a stereotype almost as bad as the black-robed, warty which cackling over a cauldron?

Is what I'm trying to ask making sense, and do you see what I mean by asking?

I'm not Wiccan, but I am Pagan.

And most Pagans I know are either jobless by choice (I'm a SAHM, which is full-time but only pays in giggles) or working real jobs.  Some are underemployed, some by choice and some not.  They're responsible people.

Sure, there are some that are crazy and do nothing.  But you find them everywhere.  Most Pagans, like most other people, have jobs and lives and families like everyone else.
