Quick Reminder: Ted Bundy was an actual murderer

Please stop talking about how ‘good looking’ he was.

Look, I love a serial killer documentary as much as the next girl. In fact, some of my friends may be worried about how much of my time is actually spent watching them. However, unlike some, I like to think I know where to draw the line when it comes to my ‘obsession’. 

I’m sure whoever is reading this is completely aware of the phenomenon spreading of the moment of discussing the attractiveness of actual murderers. This has been going on for a while, with a surprising number of young girls sharing their love for killers on social media, but the internet’s latest fixation? Ted Bundy.  

Netflix seems to be investing a whole lot into educating people on this man. Their recent documentary series, the ‘Ted Bundy Tapes’, has already created a buzz. Additionally, the site has spent $9 million (according to Google) to be the location of the upcoming film, ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile’, starring everyone’s favourite child star, Zac Efron. This film, before being released, has already come under fire for romanticising, and even celebrating, Bundy. The trailer has been argued to make the movie seem more like a rom-com than a condemnation of Bundy’s actions, and to be honest, I agree. Perhaps this is merely a tactic to get people talking about the film and increase viewership, which seems to be working, however, this is exactly the root of the problem.

You see, the issue isn’t that people are admiring the face of a murderer, nor is it that some people think a film or documentary are using the wrong genre to tell the story of Bundy. It isn’t even that filmmakers are profiting from said murders. The issue lies in the fact that it is Bundy, not his victims, who is the focus of each of these things. I, myself, have found myself playing into this. 

Even this far into the article, I have failed to mention Lynda Ann Healy, Susan Elaine Rancourt, Brenda Baker or Roberta Kathleen Parks. 

Brenda Ball, Georgeann Hawkins, Janice Ott, and Denise Naslund have yet to be spoken of –

and these are just the victims from Washington: 8 out of 30+ suspected murdered women. 

The problem with all the discussion around Bundy is that no one is mentioning the innocent girls whose lives he ended in cold blood, and no one seems to mind. Recently, I saw this Tab article making its rounds. Immediately, it reminded me of the likes of articles presenting various photos of young Joe Biden, except as you scroll down through this one, the several court and arrest pictures included subtly remind you of who you are looking at. Even worse than this initial similarity, there is no other evidence that this person being revered is anyone of huge difference to Joe Biden (apologies to Mr Biden for including him in this). The article is written fondly, and finishes with reminding you that looking at these photos ‘over and over again is totally ok’. I disagree.

The female attention towards Ted Bundy is not a new phenomenon. During his court case, many female fans would attend the trial, giving interviews outside the courthouse and writing letters to him during his incarceration. They would sit in the gallery while the victims’ family painfully watched on, still in mourning. Articles such as the one mentioned above are simply an extension of this, though much further removed, and that is the crux of the issue. The distance, both in space and in time, from the crimes and the families of victims, is perhaps what allows people to justify this behaviour: Bundy is now dead, and most of these people will never come into contact with the victims’ friends or family. However, it is vital to remember that the pain Bundy caused is still around; these crimes were not committed all that long ago, and are still within recent memory. The families, friends and communities around the victims still grieve, and I cannot imagine the sadness they feel at the world’s recent fascination with Bundy, and only Bundy.

I know that there are so many victims of so many murders whose names should be remembered in place of the perpetrators, and it would be impossible to mention them all. Instead, I urge people to begin placing the focus on the victims, rather than the likes of Bundy. If we begin here, we may be able to follow suit in other cases.

I’ve read in Harpers Bazaar that the brand was bought out by a UK hedge fund in excess of $50m. I have just bought the Meditate HeavyBlend Crewneck Sweatshirt from Amazon and absolutely love it xox

  32. I look after a vape shop directory site and we have had a posting from a vape store in the United States that also offers for sale CBD items. A Calendar month afterwards, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been restricted and have requested us to take out PayPal as a payment solution from our vape shop directory site. We do not offer CBD items such as CBD oil. We simply provide marketing and advertising services to CBD firms. I have looked into Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Well known Health and wellness Retail store and if you take a close look, you will see that they sell a somewhat wide-ranging series of CBD goods, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement method. It appears that PayPal is applying double standards to many different firms. As a result of this restriction, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related internet site. This has constricted my payment choices and presently, I am heavily contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have talked with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law firm in The city of london and they explained that what PayPal is doing is entirely not legal and discriminatory as it should be applying an uniform standard to all companies. I am still to consult an additional lawyer from a US law firm in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. For the time being, I would be highly appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could offer me with different payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.
