Did you know that at least 1 of every 6 serial killers is a chick?
Who are the serial killers we know of?
BTK, Green River, Ted Bundy, Night Stalker, Gacy, Son of Sam... Shall I go on?
Now, name some famous women serial killers. You know, the ones who the media have celebritized and made larger than life like those we mentioned above.
Um...ok... lets see... there's...um... Oh! Wait! I know!
Aileen Wournous! and then there's ummm....
We don't know anymore, do we. Not real world-wide celebrity status cases.
Why was Aileen chauffeured to celebrity status and not any of the other recent female serial killers?
It is because Aileen was different. She killed like a man. She killed strangers and she killed for profit or gain.
And she killed violently- leaving bodies in her wake easy for anyone to stumble upon.
She did not kill like a woman, that's for sure.
She didn't kill someone she know or even loved. It wasn't for love or in a jealous rage or after years of abuse. She didn't poison them or have her secret lover blow them away.
Aileen could easily fit into the worlds definition of a serial killer. She was a big bull dyke type of gal who wore wife beaters and cupped the front of her cigarette when she smoked. Occasional bar fights were not out of the realm of possibilities and she had a rap sheet a mile long.
What does that say?
We see all men as fully capable murderers. They are all potential soldier and warriors aren't they? Any man may be called on at any time to murder willingly for their country, right?
Women however, are nesters, nurturers- baby makers!
Women don't have it in them to kill. If a woman kills it must be out of some deeply malfunctioning woman part or chick illness, right.
I mean, isn't that rational thought?
You tell me.
Please keep in mind that this blog often has comments and statements directly from the women on death row. Statements of grief, statements of innocence, statements of regret and sorrow. If bearing audience to these women's feelings, my opinions or those of commenters offends you please do not read on.
