Vampire rumors spur alert at Boston School - March 30th 2009, 08:40 PM

This is so beyond retarded... aw freaking... I thought this BS only happens in South Park episodes, I can't believe this is even covered in the media...

Quote:
Boston Latin School headmaster Lynne Mooney Teta issued a notice to parents and students yesterday quashing rumors of vampires at the school. An odd move for the head of a historic elite preparatory school, but Teta and Boston public school officials declined to elaborate on what triggered the unusual message.

"The headmaster believes that the outrageous rumors had reached a point where she had to say something to families to ensure that all students felt safe and respected," said Chris Horan, School Department spokesman.

Two law enforcement officials with knowledge of the incident said a group of girls at the school had been bullying at least one other student who likes to dress in Goth-style, a vampirish look popularized by musician Marilyn Manson. The officials said the girls began spreading a rumor that the student was a vampire who had cut someone's neck and sucked the blood.

When Boston police went to the school Wednesday on an unrelated matter, their presence fueled yet another rumor: that a vampire was being arrested, according to one of the law enforcement sources.

One student who contacted the Globe said a male student, rumored to be a werewolf, had threatened on Facebook to bring a gun to school because he was being harassed. Other students at the school yesterday said they had heard that a student had been bitten.

Students leaving Boston Latin yesterday said rumors about students claiming to be vampires, or more specifically "half-vampires," have been circulating for months. Several said two or three female students at the school carry umbrellas in all weather to avoid exposure to the sun.

Vampires can be real. But I'm almost absolutely sure this is a Twilight inspired situation.

Someones been reading/watching too much twilight/vampire academy/Dracula lately. More than likely the first two, I doubt any of those kids would read Dracula. Anyway, this is really funny and dumb.

At Boston Latin? That's a very well-respected school.....

Well, it was.

Absolutely pathetic. These kids are either incredibly stupid, very gullible, or wanted to see how far a student body as a whole could push a prank.

I am honestly speechless. Really? REALLY? Does it mention the age of the students bullying/being bullied anywhere?

I bet those kids doing the bullying were either ignorant middle-school kids or the idiot partying type who make insensitive remarks all the time. You know the kind of people I'm talking about.

Ooh, something amusing I want to point out while there's a topic about Vampires, is how many people do believe there may be vampires. There's a cemetary near me, where people believe a vampire is buried. "Paranormal Investigators" are nearly positive. It's actually a rather intriguing story, whether I believe it or not, meh.

Here
's a bit about their investigation if anyone is even slightly interested.

I have a friend who considers himself a "vampire" simply because he likes blood (whenever he or a close friend gets a cut, he'll drink the blood. he doesn't think he can walk up walls or anything like that, he just has some kind of blood fetish. maybe thats what the deal was with these kids?

So? I doubt it's a fetish. As it's been said already, this event is filled with Twilight bullshit along with utter stupidity.

As soon as I started reading the story, I thought it had to have been inspired by Twilight lol.

Bullies call victims names and make up shizzle. That's all this is.

If she was a real vampire, she's hardly likely to tell her bullies about it?

It's all rubbish.

A whole school being moved by the idea of vampires is just... So insane. Honestly. VAMPIRES. Fictional creatures! Yeah, sure, Edward Cullen/Cedric Diggory is one hot-damn sexy (questionable)vampire, but. An entire school actually buying into ones really roaming around among is?
I enjoy a good book, and sometimes lose myself in the romantic mists, but I can identify fact and fiction. Sigh.

I wonder how Stephanie Meyer reacted to this? It's so Twilight inspired. I can't believe the teachers might actually think the kids were taking it seriously.

Urgh. You would think that the mania wouldn't go this far, but of course...umbrellas? Really? I wonder which of those girls actually think they sparkle in the sun...

I don't think Stephanie Meyer particularly appreciates all this crap about her books, but you have to admit that staying out of it is much easier (and safer, for her career) than getting involved with every exaggerated interpretation of her writing.


When you say "never", I'll say "lie"
When you say "always", I'll say "true"
When you say "love", I'll say "you"
I'll say "you"

It gets better.

My thoughts exactly. If I remember correctly, Alice did carry an umbrella in that one scene in Twilight.

EDIT: By the way, the name is "Stephenie" Meyer, not "Stephanie" Meyer. Sorry, I had to add that. I'm always seeing it spelled the wrong way.
