I seem to recall reading that serial killers tend to have below average IQ's and yeah its the media and Hollywood that has elevated them to the Sherlock level of ingenuity. And yeah i agree its a good thing there doesnt seem to be an overlap between gurofans and killers or else sites like this and their content would be even harder to come by.
I know there was a time towards the middle of high school where i questioned if i might be or have sociopathic tenancies. I had become pretty antisocial. I imagined getting into fights where i would wreck the other guy so bad, like stab them with an exposed and fractured bone bad. Already had found out about most of my weird kinks (Knew about them for some time actually) including this site. I had even answered a riddle that supposedly only sociopaths would get. Like its wasnt even a riddle i was just "Oh, well clearly this is why... wait the rest of you didnt catch that?" But the factor that throws all that out is Ive still got empathy in overwhelming amounts. I cry when I watch A Pale Blue Dot. I feel warmth and happiness from caring for animals and pets. I care for the people i choose to have in my life.
So clearly yes a distinction should be made between the two groups.
Now some folks have mentioned being interested in irl gore and stuff. For me, Ive not quite made it there. CG and cartoons, fine. Part of why this is i think is precisely because it stylized, theres an aesthetic to it. How different artists treat the subject matter. Another part of the fascination for me is images where the subject should be dead but is not. Thats a vital part of it. If i saw a four panel comic of a woman getting gutted i could scroll on by if the art style isnt to my taste but if she is doing it to herself and talking sexy a the while then im interested. Non-lethal is the tag ive seen used for this... Now with that little sub-genre in mind i started my own personal photoshop manip collection of extra holes being made and fucked, as in nipple and skull fucking, and i think that shit is the bees knees. Just this week Ive started watching implant removal video and getting off to that. i dont feel gross or have guilt over it, cause i know the context. If i were to see an autopsy vid I dont think i would be able to feel the same way. That spark of life makes a difference to me.
My working theory is this - Death is a taboo and a mystery, but its also as natural as the blooming of a flower Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
