Have any of you suffered discrimination as a pagan? I must admit that I've never suffered any form of discrimination out there as a pagan. I've been attacked on-line by people that believe that I have to be black to worship the Egyptian gods but that was a couple of years ago and every once in a while someone will find my video's and make comments that are stupid but out there, no.
I haven't ever been discriminated against or made fun of for my belief in Norse gods.  I have been called a nerd because when I tell people about me wearing Mjollnir they associate with the movies and when I tell them its not related to the movies but to the god they think i'm one of those people who are obsessed with ancient religions.
I am an alt-right Pagan!  Not looking for debates, I don't think my race is superior I just think that everyone should live with themselves alone.  However, the internet is a place for everyone of every creed.  I am into bodybuilding (GETTING MASSIVE GAINS EVERYDAY BRVH) and I love conlanging (Bee meen freend in ConWorkShop meen næm is Advark!)

I have never been discriminated against personally but then I have only identified as Pagan for the last 15 months and I am also very careful who I share my religious beliefs with. I have a good friend who I've only known for a year and she is a devout Christian but she is also a very accepting and understanding person. I was expecting to be somewhat discriminated against when I shared my beliefs with her but I have been pleasantly surprised: she has accepted that my beliefs are vastly different and has been understanding and sometimes even curious about Paganism. I take this as a sign that she is someone to keep in my life.
