Offshoots of Wicca or Paganism

These aren't very clear to me.

They are usually more popular in modern culture among women than among men, because Christianity is billed too much as a "brotherhood" that tends to exclude or subordinate women.

There's the "six-pointed pentagram." All the way around the circle, back where you started, the sixth point coincides with the first. [EDIT: it's the standard go-around come-around you get from "the ladies" in any government office. Their holy "circle" is closed and someone is left out because they demand a human sacrifice.]

Wiccans and Paganists vary a lot on their tolerance of the LGBT spectrum.

People "witch" for water when they dig a well, or something like that when they otherwise confess Christianity.

There is an intentional imposition of imperfection, and a certain frustration, prevention, or denial of perfection. Almost as though we could do something right, but let's not be too perfect about it. It's not usually a bad thing to avoid perfectionism, and learn to move on when a job is done "well enough," but people make a religion of slight or minimized imperfections, and they fail to recognize or allow for certain situations where perfection really is an absolute requirement of success.

Of course the Paganism I am referring to is more or less a mix of Norse, Roman, and Greek, because the Finns had a slightly different set of beliefs.

These are deep-rooted cultural beliefs or superstitions that people often still carry subconsciously, even if, say, they confess Christianity, of which an overt form has taken over the areas where these beliefs once predominated.

I am a Witch and have been since 1951. The pentagram (pent) is a five point entangled star with the apex pointing up each point represents the elementals  earth, air, fire, water and spirit.   A pentagram with the point down is a satanic symbol and has nothing to do with Wicca or Witchcraft. Witches do not believe in an evil divinity (devil or demons). We believe that an all pervading intelligence we call Spirit is present everywhere in all things. Wicca is new age having evolved in the 1950's by Gerald Gardner and appeals to the younger generation as a social instrument and hosts Covens for group ritual such as circle casting for Esbats (full moon rituals)  and Sabbats  (seasonal). Witchcraft is an ancient way of life from pre-historic beginnings of the human quest for spiritual enlightenment. The cave dwelling fire watcher (usually female) became the first Witches, Shaman, Wizard and were considered the "Wise Ones". Witches follow the noble path of the Ancient Ones, we have a deep respect for and affinity with Natural Forces. We gather in small groups of solitaries or covens to celebrate the Esbats and Sabbats. Witchcraft empowers the practitioner to influence probabilities in the material world with "Magick" and allows the Witch to establish a presence in the realm of Spirit. We are "Walkers between worlds" skilled in many occult arts such as remote viewing, bi-location, telepathy, healing and remote influencing. We have a higher code of ethics that demands we "are free to do as we will so long as we harm none".

That, as stated, is not what I am finding fault with, but nevertheless, a great deal of harm is wrought in such total denial.
