I aggree with a lot of these beliefs, for example the three-fold rule, respecting others religions and not trying to get people to believe in your religion. I would like to find alot more out about it, but I'm not sure about all this feminist and mythology stuff.  where can i find out more and is it absolutely necessary to the faith ?

i don't like to believe that you have to believe in feminists and mythology to be wiccan after all there are no set of rules that you have to go by like some religions. And if there was then id be in trouble as well b/c I'm not all to big on feminists either. So you can look around till you find a group who share the same beliefs as you and practice the religion with them.

Wicca is a religion, or for those that prefer, a spiritual path. It is a set of beliefs that is very personal, with a few widely accepted core beliefs. One can be Wiccan without studying all the extras such as mythology, divination and magick. Also Wicca should be more focused on balance between the masculine and feminine, and not a feminist path. Looking into many groups, reading as much as possible and getting as many opinions as possible should help you find the Wiccan path that is right for you.

Wicca is a religion based upon what we know of pre-Christian Pagan religions. As a result, mythology is generally a very necessary part of Wicca. What parts of mythology, however, and how extensive your knowledge has to be, are dependent upon the group you decide to work with. Magick - or the better word: Witchcraft - is an innate and accepted part of Wicca (in actuality Wicca and Witchcraft are the same thing - see http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Forum/7280/wvsw.html).

So while some of these "extras" may not be what you're looking for, most (if not all) Wiccan Covens will ask you to at least make an effort to do that work. Otherwise, Wicca may not be the religion for you, even if you *are* interested.
