Argh, I can't understand this fad either! What's with the fluffy-bunnyizing of the Creatures of the Night? I think you've got a point about the anti-GLBTers and the de-clawing/de-fanging of vampires and their colleagues, but I also wonder if it's a more general denial of sexuality. The mob-hysteria thing kind of reeks of desperation, all those kids wearing chastity rings or whatever the hell they're called, but still having to put their raging hormones somewhere.

There is awe and wonder, terrible beauty and mystery, in the dark places, but you'll never see any of it if you're afraid to turn off the lights.

So perfectly put (and so damn scary - I struggle with this myself). The Creatures of the Twitlight are about as scary as that Hello Kitty Darth Vader (http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3564/3762189177_3ac2627489.jpg).
