Real Vampires “Coming Out Of The Coffin”
I mean … in the wake of Caitlyn Jenner, Chelsea Manning, and Rachel Dolezal, why should America’s vampire community remain in the coffin?
“The research paper published in the latest issues of Critical Social Work set out to explore the unique issues that affect those in society who identify as vampires when seeking counseling.
Williams, and his co-researcher Emily Prior, set their focus on individuals who identified as “real” vampires – those individuals who need to consume fresh blood for energy – not “lifestyle” vampires- who only emulate certain mythologies such as clothing style, phony fangs, and/or sleeping in a coffin, while not actually consuming blood.
“We live in an age of technology and live in a time when people can select new, alternate identities to fit how they understand themselves better,” Williams wrote.
“Most vampires believe they were born that way; they don’t choose this,” Williams said.
These “real” vampires live under the constant fear that simply by disclosing their vampire identities to clinicians, that they would be labeled as delusional or as a “threat to public safety.”
“The real vampire community seems to be a conscientious and ethical one,” Williams said.
“They are successful, ordinary people,” he continued. People afraid of losing their jobs or worrying that “the state would take my children away.”
“Real” vampires use razors or scalpels to make small incisions in their chests and lick or suck out the blood for energy.. The vampires claim they need to feed on “a willing ‘donor’ in order to maintain physical, psychological and spiritual health,” according to the paper.
In the absence of feedings, these vampires believe “their overall health and well-being suffer.”
“If they drink blood, that is perceived as being dangerous and delusional,” Williams says. That, he adds, is “the big misconception.”
Williams goes even further in the study explaining just how much “real” vampires are just like other people except with different energy needs.”
If a man can become a woman or a White woman can become a black woman, why can’t someone become a vampire and demand equal rights and social acceptance?
