Ramblings of a self-confessed hybristophiliac
I won’t even lie, I would’ve accepted a ride from Edmund Kemper.
And given him quite a ride in return, if you know what I mean.
I’m not going to sit here and lie to you. If they’re dead, they’re dead. I feel nothing.David Copeland, the London Nail Bomber
Hybristophilia is a paraphilia involving being sexually aroused or attracted to people who have committed an outrage or a gruesome crime. In popular culture, this phenomenon is also known as “Bonnie and Clyde Syndrome”
Up until a month ago, I had no idea what “hybristophilia” was.
I’ve been fantasising about serial killers, spree killers and mass murderers for a number of years now.
I understand that people find this disturbing and disgusting and I totally get it. It is sick. It is unhealthy. But I can’t help it.
One thing I’m grateful to Tumblr Fandoms for is that it’s given me a whole new perspective. I’ve always felt so ashamed about my secret obsession. I felt like the worst person in the world because nobody I know sees this the way I do. Nobody understands.
But I know now that there are other people out there like me. People who know what they are and aren’t afraid to admit it.
That makes me happy.
What pisses me off though, are these teenage groupies who fake “hybristophilia” to look “cool”.
How on earth is that COOL?
WHY IS THAT EVEN A THING?!
It took me a year of therapy to even admit to having these fatasies and then you get these girls here flaunting it like a designer handbag.
Let’s get one thing straight. You do not have hybristophilia because you find T.J Lane hot. Why? Because he’s already hot to begin with.
And we’d probably bang him without the criminal record.
To me, what makes them attractive is what they’ve done so if you’re sitting there spouting shit like “I love him IN SPITE of what he’s done”, you’re not a hybristophiliac.
If you’re only attracted to killers who are naturally attractive, you’re not a hybristophiliac.
If you avoid reading about the details of the cases because it makes you feel uneasy to associate the killer with his crimes, you’re not a hybristophiliac.
I would bang Wayne Gacy. Why? Because he has an impressive body count.
Would I find him attractive if he was just a petty thief? Hell no.
Do you see what I’m getting at?
Edmund Kemper is not commercially attractive in any way, but I’d still fuck him ten ways til Sunday.
THAT is hybristophilia.
Same goes for David Berkowitz, Jeffrey Dahmer(although I won’t lie, he was pretty fucking good looking), Westley Allan Dodd, Kip Kinkel, and the list goes on.
So let’s NOT confuse your teen crush on a “bad boy” with something serious just because you think the big words make you look cooler.
And I’m not saying don’t post your cute little collages and gifs because some of us really do enjoy looking at them, just don’t wear the “hybristophilia” tag like a blue ribbon from the county fair.
Get it? Got it? Good.
I’m glad we could all have this talk.

Nothing I respect more than a man who takes full responsibility for his own actions.
Also it doesn’t hurt that he looks that good.
This is why I hate the death penalty.

Can never stop laughing at this!!
