The Lesbian Vampire: A (Fairly) Brief Media Retrospective

There is an often misquoted historical myth that Queen Victoria did not believe in female homosexuality or lesbianism, because, “What could [two women] do?” While the quote is false, the mentality behind it, unfortunately, is still prominent. Even now, lesbians are still forced into gender norms of one person having to be “the man” (punch) and virginity being measured on whether one has been penetrated.

Spoopy.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kate Beckinsale is returning to the Underworld franchise for its newest installment. Guess that Avengers genderswap post wasn't enough to convince her that she should be Iron Man instead. Alas.

Talking Iranian lady vampire flicks is always the best.

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is one of the coolest movies of the year.

"Get them off my lawn!"

I fear that Stan Lee may missed the entire point of vampires in this most recent rant, but I'm not going to be the one to tell him that. He's just so adorable. Just don't try to explain the difference between Frankenstein and Frankenstein's monster next, or we'll probably end up breaking him.

So Chris Pine Is A Vampire Lawyer Now

It's got that thing, you know?

Chris Pine and the people at Funny or Die must have known that if they attempted a serious ridiculous sketch about vampire lawyers, they would be up against some heavy competition—Phil Hartman's classic caveman lawyer, for example, or Harvey Birdman attorney at law. So instead they went in a different direction, and the entire Internet is better for it.

The Art of the Villain Backstory (and Why Dracula Untold Fails)

“Son of the devil” my ass.

Villainous backstories are an... imprecise science. When done well they can imbue a previously simplistic baddie with depth and challenge conventional morality. When done poorly, however, they are frustrating, self-pitying, and utterly off the mark.

It's monster season!

The Twilight Series Is Coming Back… And the Reason Why Is Actually Pretty Cool

I know. I'm shocked, too.

When I read that the Twilight movie franchise was being resurrected with a series of five short films, my reaction was akin to a cat trying to get a hairball out of its throat. But then I read the thing that all the shorts will have in common and... readers, I didn't think I'd ever say this, but... Twilight. I am proud of you.

Do Mermaids Get Periods? or, Explaining The Menstrual Cycles of Various Mythological Creatures

That is menarche! Er, sorry, malarky. Either or.

The amount of erotic fiction written about vampires, elves, and mermaids could probably fill up every library in the world, but has anyone ever thought to offer one of these poor souls a tampon? Because I did. Come, speculate wildly with me!
