Some Monsters Are People, Some Aren't
When I watch movies with vampires or werewolves or stuff like that, it annoys me when the humans refer to them as "it" instead of "he" or "she". How do they think the vampires and werewolves feel about that? No wonder humans are always getting mauled or fed on. The excuse they give is always something along the lines of "Look at it. It's not a human being." While it's true that they're not human, I think that they should be considered nonhuman persons. I kind of understand that attitude toward werewolves, since they turn into animalistic beasts, which I do not think count as people, but still, most werewolves are more often than not in human form. They look like us, speak like us, interact with each other the same way we do; they're people. Many of them are evil people and should be hunted down by Death Dealers or Van Helsing or someone like that, but they're still people. That same statement is also true of vampires. The majority of them are evil, but they're evil people, and not just creatures that look like humans. But what's our excuse for that? They don't even have a beast form. They're people 24/7! Those two bother me, but the one that bothers me by far the most is zombies. Did the zombie apocalypse have a side effect of making everyone dumb?! It always takes way too long for people to realise that zombies are no longer the people they were. That person is dead and gone, and what they see is that person's corpse walking around. Sure, that's pretty messed up when you think about it, but get over it! There is no way to cure that person or bring them back because THERE IS NO CURE FOR DEATH! Honestly, the best thing you can do for that person is "kill" the zombie that was once their body.
