you don't know jack about vampire legend, no surprise since you don't even know your own zombie legend.

Translates to "I can't get laid and its because of vampires!"

Ironic, 'cause Ms. Rice became one of youse guys for a while there. Then she dropped it 'cause she was offended by just how offensive you really are.
That says something, methinks.

Vampires have always been sexual, and it's not just women who have vampire kinks. They're the perfect sexual partners for anyone with a thing about dominance, or blood, or biting.

Someone has an unfulfilled homoerotic vamp fetish...

I guess he means the story of Cain, right?
I only heard about it when I was deep into fantasy already, playing vampire: the masquerade: bloodlines.
I liked vampires looong before that.

Well the vampirism = sex thing is a genuine part of the mythos other than that you lose.

I admit I don't know a damned thing about modern vampire fiction, even though I have written a screenplay for "Dracula". Nonetheless, until recently, the authors of vampire fiction were men, and they appeared to be writing about everything that made men nervous. The infamous "baptism scene" in "Dracula" is clearly a male lactation fantasy, and though psychiatry has rarely addressed this issue, Madison Avenue sure has (remember the early Daisy Sour Cream ads?) Now we have this poor Occidental Conception decompensating over these male-created fears. Too bad.

Okay, first paragraph, not so bad.
The rest of it... *facepalm*

The history of the vampire in literature goes way back beyond Anne Rice. It's possibly greatest exponent was Bram Stoker. I was born in the same city he came from almost 100 years after his birth and have read his writing extensively. His book is a morality tale. I suppose morality would have to bite Stonelifter on the arse before he would recognise it in the book. The literatue genre even goes abck to Polidori in the early 1800s.
But what does this mean: "...and it’s part of the war on Christ. The 1st vampire story people know about is; he became a vampire..."
What this says is that Jesus became a vampire. Well, eating his flesh is a bit icky. Drinking his blood make people vampire, I suppose. Of course the use of language here is so cack-handed that nonsense is bound to feature.
There is a wonderful gay Vampire in Polanski's "Fearless Vampire Killers" aka "The Dance of the Vampires" Makes a lot more sense that Stonelifters word salad.

"which makes sense because feminism itself is part of the war on God and Christ"
Yes, feminists forced this christian nation to allow women to vote. Vampires were an integral part of the sufferagette movement.

"Vampires were an integral part of the sufferagette movement."
I would so watch that movie.

I'm sorry. There is no such person as Anne Ric. Please learn how to spell.

Was almost an argument until he said, "...all the silly shit that gets women..." In other words, I believe we have another loveshy candidate here! Look, it is obviously not his fault, it's those godless vampires! *rolls eyes*

Actually, being "near God like in power" sounds pretty neat. Maybe the vampires should take over. Your God has been resting on his laurels for the past couple of millenia, and hasn't anything close to what he supposedly did back in the day.

Xotan, if I am not mistaken, Stoker himself was influenced by Sheridan Le Fanu's "Carmilla", a rather prolix and heavy-handed work that is transparently about the fear of one's pure daughter being led astray by her female chums. If memory serves me, Le Fanu was also Irish, but definitely male. More men-made-nervous stuff...

The Wild One, Forever
You probably see everything as a War on Christ, including Spaghettios, sidewalks, and milkshakes. War FOR Christ is probably OK with you, though.
6/18/2012 6:19:05 AM
and it’s part of the war on Christ.
See? This is what I was talking about on the other thread. These people are so insane that they think that portraying anything that they even remotely dislike is a "war" on Christianity. Like it's not possible to just be into zombies or vampires just for the fun of it, it's somehow all part of a big plan designed to destroy Christianity. If your religion is so fragile that it's threatened by people being interested in anything which doesn't mention Jesus, then it should be destroyed.

"I think the popularity with vampires is based on anne ric."
Then you haven't been paying attention to the media for the last 100, plus years.
And it's Anne Rice. Try to get the names right.
6/18/2012 6:34:56 AM
I'm pretty sure there were sexy Vampires before Rice. And I'm pretty sure that doesn't have a lot to do with Feminism or having wars with Jesus.
And of course anything that arouses women is "silly shit." What is important is what arouses men, gosh. And men couldn't like vampires, jeez. Although I'd guess Lestat is sexy to many and he's not very "feminine."
6/18/2012 7:26:21 AM
It was Bela Lugosi who added the suaveness in Dracula, and Frank Langella that brought real sexuality into it. They were long before Anne Rice.
6/18/2012 7:27:01 AM
Sorry stonelifter, that was supposed to be part of the war on Chris. Pesky spelling mistakes are ruining it for everyone!
By the way, would a stale wafer transubstantiate into flesh that needs a shower? Just curious.
6/18/2012 7:27:53 AM
Carmilla was an extremely sexy vampire who wasn't into guys, but I guess Le Fanu liked to watch.
6/18/2012 7:53:51 AM
So are you saying that when you worship God, He rewards you by giving you cancer, having your children raped and destroying your town with a tornado; whereas when you curse God, you get free from His rules and acquire God-like powers yourself? Wow. Tough choice!
