sorry for disturbing you, but I was wondering about the term Trollwife again. Would it be improper for me to use it? Someone said it would be appropriating. If it is, its no big deal~ I'm just looking for a good word to describe what I do
I’m not sure that it is, but I’m not sure that it isn’t.
Unless they are Scandinavian and a practitioner of Trolldomr, I’d be hesitant to just take their word for it. As much as I feel it’s long overdue for people to care about cultural appropriation, I think in an effort to be not-dicks, some have accidentally slid a bit over the crest into being dicks in the opposite way.
Trolldom absolutely is a practice that’s still going on, though. There are several youtubers that are Trollfolk (is that a word? I don’t know) that would probably be quite happy to clarify the point. Putting out calls for native practitioners of it, or hereditary learners or whatever to weigh in would be quite a good idea.
