Anonymous asked: What's your take on serial killers? Monsters or merely misunderstood?
Well, I think we’re all a little misunderstood, when you get right down to it.
I don’t think it’s good or healthy to kill humans. I understand that sometimes it is necessary, but I think it should be avoided whenever it can be. I think if you want a person to suffer, you need to let them live. Killing should be reserved for emergencies, and last resorts.
Also, I’ve never seen a cool serial killer, like on TV. Real serial killers tend be very unattractive, unintelligent men with terrible taste in fiction and pornography. They’re never people who’d love the same books as me.
Serial killing seems to stem from pain and fractured personalities. It doesn’t seem to be a healthy or happy path, as cool as the characters may seem in comic books and movies. I think people who kill are haunted by the same mental and emotional cripplings that drive them on.
Sorry; I sorta wanted to write something a little more fun about all that, but it feels kinda nice to be honest and straightforward about this sorta thing.
