I guess I don’t see how identifying that Aset isn’t Isis is disrespectful? If anything, it’s simply clarifying facts, the same way that we clarify that all Horuses are not the same, and that there are actually 489754857 forms of Horus, but almost none of the books go into specifics, unless it’s HSA vs. HW.
If you’re upset that I don’t care about Isis, I’m not sure what to say. I only care about pre-Late Period Egyptian religion and gods. I’m very niche in what I study and what I pay attention to, and anything that starts to wander into deep GR or Late Period territory is not really anything I care about (honestly anything after the XXth Dynasty and I really stop paying attn and I have skipped entire LP chapters in books because I srsly do not care). It’s not meant as a form of disrespect, it’s simply how I function. Truth be told, I even have a hard time keeping interest in other NTR that aren’t the small cluster that I have a sweet spot for. I’m a dirty cultist, and I don’t hide that.
This is largely borne out of a lack of energy, spoons, and time to devote to things that don’t fall within the small category that I’m interested in or have been requested to study. I don’t waste my time with stuff that isn’t in that category because I don’t really have the time or energy to waste. I’ve only got so many hours in the day to dedicate to this, and so I’m choosing to focus my time on what I deem the most important, because it will render the best results for what I need to get done. On some levels I’d love to learn about other cultures (some, not many), but I have to make decisions on what I can use my time on, and since Kemeticism has to come first, it currently does.
Which means GR stuff is just not on my radar, and I don’t really read posts about GR or Hellenistic stuff because it doesn’t fall within my realm of interest or what have you.
On top of that, if it bothers you that Kemetics don’t really bother with Isis, I’d like to gently remind you that that is probably because Isis isn’t a Kemetic deity inasmuch as she’s a Hellenistic/GR deity. Some Kemetics do end up dabbling in the GR period of history and the religion, but a lot of us don’t. Which is probably why we don’t talk about her very much in the tags if at all.
Probably the same reason why Heathens aren’t talking about Ra or why the Celtic Recons aren’t talking about Wadjet, etc. “Not my monkey, not my circus”. It’s not meant to be disrespectful, it’s simply not a part of their religion. While it’s true that Isis is borne out of Aset, she’s still technically not part of our original “canon” pantheon, and because she shows up so late in the game, most of us really don’t pay a lot of attention to her.
*shrug* I don’t really know what else to say beyond that. There is nothing wrong with Isis or worshiping Isis, etc. But she’s only sorta kinda part of our pantheon, and she’s not really the same deity as Aset. I don’t think it’s disrespectful to say either of these things. Nor do I think that highlighting these facts is somehow disrespectful to the deity or her devotees.
