Fucking Vampires

Your phone rings and you reel with apprehension. It’s “them again”, and you are about to be drained by a person who cannot deal with their own emotions. Sometimes this is completely justified: your friend or loved one is suffering a deep phase of grief from a traumatic event. But in this case, its just a histrionic vampire coming to feed.
Their reasons for being distraught are likely by-products of their own lack of self-awareness. “Woe is me!” “Nobody likes me!” “Why doesn’t anyone care!?” All common sentiments bellowed out by this crowd. Personal responsibility is a foreign concept to them, and they will find any excuse not look in the mirror.
Its best to disengage all communication as quickly and tactfully as possible. Politeness is an act of self-preservation on your part. Plenty of vampires have strong suicidal urges,* coupled with a ceaseless belief that the world owes them for their shitty lot in life . This can lead to a homicidal ideation that’s comprised of a desire to take out those who have “wronged them” before they themselves seek oblivion. This is, of course, the worst case scenario. Some of them simply crave drama. You do not want to give them fodder for such a thing, still, as it will more require you to expend even more precious energy on an undeserving individual.
 You may be under the delusion that you can help these people by “being there”. However, in all reality, you simply can’t. There is nothing you can do because they refuse change. Being their victim will only result in a fruitless martyrdom.
 Move along and be free of their bullshit.

“Many people who walk the earth practice the fine art of making others feel responsible and even indebted to them, without cause. Satanism observes these leeches in their true light. Psychic vampires are individuals who drain others of their vital energy. This type of person can be found in all avenues of society. They fill no useful purpose in our lives, and are neither love objects nor true friends. Yet we feel responsible to the psychic vampire without knowing why.” – Anton LaVey

*I do not believe all suicidal people to be of this sort.

We Can Do Better

By Trista Rundatz     Edited By Justin Jones

 

We need to raise the bar where our expectations of women are concerned. If we want to be seen as equal, then we must strive to BE equal – not delude ourselves by lending credence to the inaccurate feedback given to us in the form of undue praise. 


Media tell us we are beautiful and complete by just being ourselves – no need to strive beyond!  It seems as though when constructive criticism is thrown in our direction through these, the masses cause an uproar and scream “Misogyny!”. Maybe we should take some of this criticism into consideration as opposed to whining about it?

 

“You-go-girl” style pats on the back from other women (for even the most trivial accomplishments) is another way to keep the bar well below what it should be. Encouraging other women is a wonderful thing, but it needs to be REALISTIC – Not wantonly doled out. Save the pats for real achievements, for real merit!

 

And last but certainly not least, there are the men: men who will kiss our asses if we are deemed sexually attractive, men who will place us on a pedestal, men who will try to fill our egos with nonsense in an effort to get laid or to find companionship. This collective coddling not only creates a narcissistic delusion in women (namely, that there isn’t much for us to improve upon), it also shows a real lack of faith in our abilities and potential.

 

Want to truly help women? Expect better of us and stop telling us we are special all the fucking time.
