Do vampires get a raw deal?

Oh fine, its only 2 weeks to Halloween, so lets get sort of topical. Yes, inspired by a story I read today!

To save those who would rather not go read the story, this is the big quote

Intellectually, I know you’re perfectly safe, but I just can’t help remembering all the people in all those horror movies who thought they were perfectly safe too.”
Isabella sighed. “I swear, I wish I could erase every one of those movies! So many hurtful stereotypes.”

So fine, I know, in real life (pretty much) there are no such things as vampires, in the classic movie sense, at least. But is she right, do vampires get a raw deal in the image we have of them, or not? No, I’m not offering my neck to one, as a meal, just like that, before anyone gets any ideas lol! But equally, if say, someone was willing to let a vampire have a meal of their blood, should it be totally frowned upon? I know, its all hypothetical (I assume?), but just consider it, all the same.

I mean, I know how ‘Isabella’ feels, because given the subject matter of my recent book, ECT, and the reaction of people to it, I know what she means. Because yes, if anyone asked most people about ECT, they’d think of ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest’ in all likelihood, and modern treatments are nothing like that! I’m not saying its perfect, but the old image of ECT is just not true nowadays!

In truth, me, apart from a few blood tests, which involve very small amounts, I’ve never given blood to anyone. Mainly because I suffered with jaundice as a child, and was told back then, that meant I couldnt give blood donations. True or not now, no idea, but because of that, I’ve never actually got around to doing it, but probably should, if I can? But give blood to a vampire, like that? Hmm? I dont know, I sort of secretly fancy having my neck bit like that, but at the same time, the repercussions of doing so?

I know, I know, I’d love a scientist to inject me with robotizing nanites, or any kind of solution, so is there any great difference?

Right, video. I found this on a random search on You Tube. Warning, those who dont enjoy the sight of blood, dont watch it! I know, should be obvious, but…rolls eyes…
