I understand to many the title or rather the reference to the idea that you are studying to become a 'Druid' just doesn't work. Because as I've seen people say up and down in conversations about Druidism is that, "Druid is a title, therefore you're just a wannabe or a bréagdraoi, haha". Supposedly coming from someone who is of Celtic decent used the term 'bréagdraoi' when referring to someone who follows the same path as myself. The person stated that the word means 'False Druid'. I have never heard the word before so it is definitely new to me. However these sorts of statements are very insensitive and lead many of us to believe people are just being overly prejudice of us and our beliefs. Who really is the judge or decides who is truly a 'Druid' or who is not? If you ask me it is the 'Lord' and 'Lady', for if they chose you then who can say except your heart and soul. You get this sort of crap though from just about any religion you can study, but the people who call themselves 'Druids' in this day and age as well as Wiccans and Pagans get quite a bit of flack.
So what are we truly suppose to call ourselves? Pagans? But is that truly the correct word to describe us? Wiccan, likewise is that the right term as well? Who knows, but it seems rather clear a different word must be created in order to refer to oneself almost in secret as to what one truly is.
