Why Women Born Women

Coven of the Twilight Moon is restricted to women-born women only. Does this mean that we are prejudiced towards (non women-born) people who identify as women, or those who are transexual or transgendered? No, not at all!

Women who grew up as girls have had different social experiences than women who didn't grow up as women. These societal pressures and other experiences of growing up as a women aid us in relating to one another, and also give us common issues and challenges to overcome. Also, many times the energy is very different between women born women, and women who weren't born physically female. Just because a group doesn't allow non-women born women doesn't mean the group is prejudiced- it just means that the group has a focus that is exclusive to women-born women.

Just as a Greek Reconstructionist group has a focus that is exclusive to those who are interested in Greek culture. Celtic Recons would have to find another group that fits their needs. We understand that its tough to find a group that fits ones needs, and many of the tight-knit covens are exclusive to one group or another (ie; gay men).

There is a group for everyone, and if you can't find one, start one- there are probably people in your situation (age/tradition/gender/etc) who are looking for a coven, too!
