    You know what’s funny? There was a show in the 1980s called Friday the 13th: The Series, and there was this one episode in the the third season that was all about a group of Druids. Naturally this was TV, so they got a lot of things wrong (e.g., they had the Druids feeding people to trees!). But it’s the only fictional treatment of the Druids I’ve ever seen where it was claimed that all Druids are women. That’s not true either, I know, but it’s still pretty interesting. If you have a taste for schlock like I do, you might dig it. But in any case, this post made me remember that crazy story.
