Being a woman is central to my spirituality - however it may be defined - and it always has been, I just didn't realise until after I gave birth. Now things have "clicked" and it seems that everything makes sense.
As a pagan, both the male and the female are central to my spirituality, the duality that creates life.
My first foray into paganism was very Goddess-focused but it never felt truly balanced until I was initiated into Wicca and found the balance of male and female. It was also empowering to be part of a religion where women and men take on a supportive role to each other, though it could be joked that though male and female are equal in Wicca, the female is slightly more equal
It's lovely to celebrate and share in other people's experience of duality and creativity, so gender queer/homosexual etc. and it's good to explore boundaries, but as a straight woman I find most resonance with the heterosexual exploration of spirituality.
