THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, I came across this crazy article. So, vampires are real… human beings who self-identify as vampires and may drink blood or sleep in coffins. And these people need as much psychotherapy and medical help as the rest of us. That’s the conclusion of a study by D.J. Williams, director of social work at Idaho State University, and published in the July issue of the peer-reviewed journal Critical Social Work. Williams and his co-author, Emily E. Prior interviewed 11 vampires from across the United States and South Africa and found that they were reluctant to come out to clinicians because they were fearful about being labeled as being psychopathological or “perhaps wicked, and not competent to perform in typical social roles, such a parenting.” If everyone looks at Bruce Jenner as hero, what do these vampires have to worry about? I find it way more disturbing that Bruce is cutting his Greg off than to see someone drink blood in front of me.
Vampires need equal rights.- nik
