It’s alleged that serial killer Ted Bundy harmed a lot of women.
But given that intersectional idiology is no longer using the term “killer”, due to it’s problematic triggering mechanisms we should use the term “harmer”, and we need to take a closer look at his crimes, and was he in fact trans?
You see Ted Bundy really wasn’t the typical criminal at all. While he had some strikes of evil against him, such as being a straight white male, but never identified as such, there were also many times in which he supported women and women’s rights.
On one occasion in Vermont, Ted Bundy noticed a woman who’s car had broken down roadside late on a rainy night, and kindly offered her a ride home and he didn’t kill her.
That really doesn’t sound like the actions of a so called serial “killer”, at all does it?
Did you also know that Ted Bundy treated his girlfriend with respect and on many occasions even suggested that she should drive? To me it’s quite clear that he was not happy with the patriarchal oppression of women and wanted to take a stand there and then way back in 1971, he was WAY ahead of his time.
It is also been said that on his way to the electric chair he was trying to tell the right wing murderers who were going to execute him that women need more respect, and he demanded equal pay for women in the workplace on a number of occasions, even writing letters to the local papers under the pseudonym “Ted Stabbe”.
The saddest part was the fact he was trans. On a number of occasions large amounts of clothing from various women, up to 35 it’s believed, were found in his home or in storage lockers around town belonging to him. Some even contained blood on them, likely because he was cutting himself, as many trans people hurt themselves as they fall victim to the heteronormative patriarchy.
He’d obviously collected these clothing items over the years somehow and felt the only place he could wear them was with the curtains drawn, in his own personal safe space.
So next time you hear about Ted Bundy being a bad person, think about the straight white male transphobic patriarchy, because they’re the real problem.
