In reference to Pamela Highet:
Perhaps, as has been suggested, this entire problem is caused by the
confused nature of the CELTIC-L server. If you DID answer my question
about Morrigan, it never arrived here. And perhaps you never received
my requests for clarification of your remarks. All I saw were one-line
"quickies" of the "Of course it was female" type. That doesn't convey
any information as to WHY you were insisting it was female. It looked to
me like you were making fun of people's questions. If that is not so,
then I apologize for the assumption of rudeness on your part.

Every time someone refered to the raven as MALE, Pamela said that it
HAD to be FEMALE, without ANY explanation as to WHY she was saying
that. A simple "In a metaphysical Celtic world, the raven would be
female" would have sufficed. I asked SEVERAL TIMES for explanations,
and received NONE.
I freely admit considerable ignorance about matters of Celtic religion.
If my saying that makes you feel better...
As it is, I've found the answers to my questions in other sources. So
the entire question is moot.
