What are WE called?
    #820428 - 08/16/02 12:25 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

Hello fellow shroom lovers!

This is my first post in this spiritual forum and I hope I'm not wrong in posting this philosophical/societal ponderance here, but here goes...

I have a question about our societies' slang;

People who smoke pot a lot are called stoners, heads, pot-heads, tokers, etc.
People who are heroin prone are called junkies (for the most part).
Cocaine users are coke heads, blow hards, crack heads, snorters, sniffers, etc.

Are we shroom heads? Mush heads? I don't particularly care for those. I want to create a universal slang term for using magic mushrooms that is more honorable and appealing than the societal norm for a drug user, since we all know that shrooms are a special gift from God and not your average drug.

I thought of the term "Zoner" (as opposed to stoner) as being a bit more respectable. I'd like to know what you think. Do you have something better, or maybe something I'm just overlooking? Please let me know.

Thank you for participating in my first thread here.

TM

Yes, The Beatles did that one in "Baby You're a Rich Man" quite a while back.
I'm looking for a more conventional term, something short and sweet.

That is a good one though.

I look at the name "Shroomerites" more as a term for members of The Shroomery than enlightened users of the sacred mushroom. ?Fortunately or unfortunately (depending on your viewpoint) not all of the mushroom lovers in the world are members of this board.

I never really thought of that term as a societal one outside this wonderful place, but it certainly does fit.

More please! I'm enjoying this!

Or... to ones that abuse mushrooms... Eraserheads, it's more derogatory.

Zoners is cool but it doesn't directly relate to mushrooms in my mind... it makes me think of someone "zoned out", which makes me think of someone stoned.

Yeah, true, now reverse it, in order to be "Zoned In" or "In the Zone"... See how trippy that is?

Pardon me, but I think it silly to define one's self by an activity. The slang terms you describe usually (but not always) refer to someone who's life centers around a drug.

For example (in a poor Jeff Foxworthy impression):

If you have a name for your bong, you might be a stoner.
If you go to an interview wearing a tie-dyed t-shirt, you might be a stoner.
If you can roll a joint with one hand, you might be a stoner.
If your license plate reads THAI STK, you might be a stoner.
If you can name the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, then you might be a stoner.
... and so on.

I can't speak for anyone else here, but my life does not revolve around the mushroom, so I would choose no such cutesy term to describe myself. (Yes, I spend a lot of time on the shroomery, but that is more for the personal interplay and exchange of ideas). However, feel free to choose whatever term strikes your fancy.


--------------------



The proof is in the pudding.

I see your point. I'd like to express mine if I may;

You see, I worship my shrooms, the things they do for me, and the total overjoyment that the combination of them and my trip track list bring me. I believe this can be described as a type of religion, (which doesn't necessarily have to be the center of your life or whole reason for living), therefore, the religion should have a name. "Shroomism" is a good one, so it's followers should also have a name, the obviuos one is "Shroomerites" (only because "Shroomites" or "Shroomists" don't sound as good). Within this religion there can be different segregations or sects, so each sect should also have a name, ie:Christian is; Catholic, Protestant, Baptist, etc.

So, people can describe their beliefs in their religion with one word.

We alll worship shroms with our "Shroomism" (don't let it go to your head Shroomism, it's just a handle) but we can be different within the guidlines of worship.

I like "Zoner". A "Zoner" is a "Shroomerite" who believes in "Shroomism" because his use of shrooms brings him into his personal "Overjoyment Zone".

Cool. Then we can wage wars where the Copelandists kick-ass on the Cubensites...

I don't think you've quite got got it, the Shroomism religion is not divided by race or strain and does not allow for acts of war. It is a religion of peace, love and understanding. And of course the religion's official recrutement song (according to the Zoners) is in my signature.

It is a religion of peace, love and understanding.

Your intentions are noble as were the founders of all religions, but labels become dividing lines and separate people.
