Vampires are not necessarily evil. They do not always kill their victims every time they feed. If they do exist, I am sure that there are probably some vampires out there that only kill when absolutely necessary.
Vampires can, in fiction, to say the least drink fake blood, animal blood, blood from willing donors, blood from blood banks and blood from those whom they sedate, make a small cut on, drink a bit, heal the cut up and then let go again. I know that a lot of this is still taking without asking, but so is a lot of things that human beings do. When they kill a cow, human beings are doing something far worse. They are taking the life of that cow and, of course, this is generally without asking the cow (!)

No vampires are evil. They are never portrayed as heroic in any movies, books, television shows, etc. Vampires relate to the undead which in turn relates to demons. Regardless of religion they represent true evil and can scare many people when they are portrayed like Dracula and not Edward from Twilight. Do not compare humans slaughtering cows to vampires killing innocent people. Both are innocent, however killing that cow can feed plenty of people while killing that person may feed only one vampire.

Vampires are portrayed as good in loads and loads of different movies these days. There are "Dark Shadows", "Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant", the "Twilight" movies, "The Little Vampire" and "Underworld", to name only a few. In the TV world, there are good vampires in "The Vampire Diaries" and even in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", to name only two. Also, there are countless good vampires out there in books and in other literature as well.

Really? What type of vampires are these? These are vampires that signify if my say a kind of coward like behavior. These are vampires that will appeal to young girls, not everyone in general. Give me examples of vampires who portray heroism that don't include an appealing sense to the teenagers out there. Again, they stand for evil and satanic type of behavior.

I may have forgot about it. Either that, or I could have been asleep at the time I live in the UK, by the way.
Anyhow, even the old legends are not without their good vampires. The Stregoni Benefici are a race of Italian vampires that help sick people and are mortal enemies with evil vampires. They were not invented to appeal to teenage girls. Like most myths and legends, they were probably first thought of or dreamt up as an early explanation for something.
Also, before we start bashing them for what they have supposedly done to humans, think about what humans have done to them. Throughout the years, according to movies, legends, books and other stories, humans have used Holy water to burn vampires, as well as tricking them and/or somehow keeping them in the sun, locking them in coffins and allowing them to suffocate, staking them through the heart and otherwise torturing, maiming and killing them. Think about it this way. You are a vampire. You are of the type that have vampiric traits in your appearance, such as pale skin and red eyes. You cannot go into any public place without experiencing persecution and having everyone else there afraid of you. You want to make friends, or even just ask someone something, but you cannot get near anyone without them backing away, insulting you and trying to ward you off, even though you have no intention of harming them. They just think that, because you are a vampire, you want to kill them. All you want to do is just ask them something or befriend them, and/or mind your own business, but you cannot do this because are so feared and persecuted. Everyone thinks that you just want to drain their blood, but you don't.
