So, I’m reading this book, and I had an interesting thought:
If supernatural creatures were to come out of the closet, for this example specifically vampires, would those people who carry on the vampiric lifestyle then be guilty of cultural appropriation/racial stereotyping? Would those humans then need to give up their lifestyle as it aped, possibly offensively, an existing people?
Yes, these odd thoughts do often occur to me, and I spent more time following the braintrails than probably I should.
