Yes, dropping the religious connotations of "angel", I should rather use the phrase "innocent and untainted by morality," and in society, the fluidity of the "unknowable monster" is siezed and attempts made to confine and tame it, to make it a charicature of the society's ideal, the Social Identity, the gentle playful monster is turned into an unemotional aggressive macho hunter, or the enslaved sexualized toy.
Cartoonish now, I see the once octopoid giggling kind monster hiding in the corner of a box weeping.
