Ted Bundy: Porn Victim?

I just watched this video from the YouTube user jordanowen42 arguing against the idea that Ted Bundy was inspired by porn to kill all the people that he did. Jordan brings up some very good points as to why he thinks the whole thing is a load of crap. He first brings up that it was a last ditch effort by Bundy to clear his name, similar to an insanity plea, where the murderer invokes an outside source saying that was what made them do it. In Bundy's case he said that pornography "snatched him" out of his "good Christian family", and that he was just a normal person made evil by porn. Jordan then brings up the point that if this was true, we'd have to protect criminals from society and not the other way around, by removing any and every thing that is 'stimulating' to us. Murderers have been "motivated" by a whole raft of different things, Jordan mentions one who was motivated by the book 'Catcher in the Rye'. We shouldn't take away cars from the general public just because there are a few morons who like to drive whilst inebriated.
Ted Bundy is trying to play the victim card, and to buy into his fa├žade is to spit on the graves of all his victims. If you blame porn for making Bundy do the things that he did, then you also have to blame soccer for all the deaths and injuries that happen during after-game riots all across the world from Brazil to the U.K. You would also have to blame religion itself for all the acts of insane depravity done in its name. Normal people don't bomb abortion clinics or murder doctors who perform abortions at point blank range. Normal religious people are also normal people, and don't do those things. You never hear cries to ban Christianity after some nut-job fundie blows up an abortion clinic do you? So why would anyone buy into the ludicrous idea that pornography turns normal people into violent serial rapists/murderers? Studies have actually shown that in places where pornography is available, rape numbers go down, and so do sexually related murders.

Here's Jordan's video if anyone wanted to watch it.

  1. Excellent post! Ted Bundy was a psycho, and for the anti-porn people to use him as an example of why porn is bad, is incredibly stupid.

  2. Yeah it's rather absurd for them to suggest that he's a normal person turned evil by porn.

  9. This blog is blatantly false. Ted Bundy NEVER said porn "turned him bad" he simply said that porn was something that fueled his fantasiez. It desensitized him. The Bible says "as a man thinketh so he is"..we can be influenced by what we watch, read, think, say, and do. You can deny it all you want. Only the fool hath said in his heart there is no God!

  10. @Anonymous - I large problem with Western thinking is the belief that "we are what we think". There are many people who think they are awesome, not worthy, incompetent, good or bad. The thoughts do not make them true, and a large amount of suffering occurs by trying to control our thoughts. You can think you are god's chosen all you want, it won't make him exist or you special.
