The greatest power one may possess -- in any situation -- is simply not to care what happens. In fact, it's the only power, all others being a semblance and mockery of it. But you must also not care about possessing the power itself. - Thomas Ligotti

Ted Bundy
In his final interview, only hours before he was put to death, Ted Bundy did not blame but correlated his addiction to sexual violence to the manner in which pornography demonstrates the pleasure derived by the male in his dominance of the female, and how he experiences something in the opposite of imasculation when she submits herself to him.

That would suggest that in his crimes, even as he had sex with the corpses of beautiful women, in his mind they were submitting themselves to him and in doing so, something about the female form, even in its physical state, provided him the satisfaction of being dominant.

And so, what is the reason behind why he sought to dominate women, and what made him so imasculated?

I think good ol' Ted's problems were a little deeper than 'feeling emasculated.' For instance, his claim that pornography was a causal factor in his journey to 'serial killerism' is pure nonsense.

His main interest was in detective novels, not pornography, themselves already being extremely suggestive of violence towards women, not mere sub/dom dichotomy.

Submissiveness is inherently feminine, just as dominance is inherently masculine, yet societal emasculation doesn't make the vast majority of men want to murder women and rape their dead bodies.

I think he had physical, as well as emotional, problems.

I applaud Mr. Ted. He may have been hurting and killing people but, he did what he enjoyed and did not let anyone stop him( until he got caught). To Egregious I completely agree with your last statement "I think he had physical, as well as emotional, problems." I think he had some major major emotional problems, not so much physical. But I don't know. I also applaud him for not being guilty for what made him happy. For the record I do not condone killing/murder( just doing what makes you happy).

Tummy, you cannot separate the actions from the consequences of those actions. That is, you cannot condone Bundy's actions and then say you do not condone killing. Regardless of which way you lean, you have to pick both or none. "You can't eat your cake and have it too."

This is why the accepted opinion of the law is that Bundy's lack of guilt exacerbates the hideousness of the crime, and therefore he deserves the full extent of punishment provided by law.

This brings me to a point. I am so very tired of those that say "just do what makes you happy, as long as you don't hurt anyone else"

What a cop-out. Everything you do effects everyone else.

Like dope? Smoke away knowing that the money you have spent is subsidizing the cartels that are using that money to buy weapons they use in killing innocents in Mexico who get in the way of providing you the smoke.

Everything we do effects everyone around us. This is a closed ecosystem. If one gains, another loses. That is just how it is.

Like crap fast food? Now the money is going to flow into providers that want to feed my children food that will hurt their health. Thanks.

Everything we do makes the world around us for everyone. Be careful what you ask for.

Perhaps not the best examples, but I am sure you get my point.

There is no 'us and them,' there is just us.
