do the jeffrey dahmer

4

Pictured above are serial killers Jeffrey Dahmer and Dennis Nilsen.

Due to their similar modus operandi, Nilsen has often been described as the British Jeffrey Dahmer. Both would lure young men they met - usually at gay bars - to their flats, where they then strangled their victims after they passed out from drinking (Nilsen) or drinking and sleeping pills (Dahmer). After their victims were dead, they would cuddle them, share the bed with them, and engage in sexual acts with them; keeping them for several days before disposing of the bodies. While Nilsen only dismembered the bodies, because it was easier to get rid of them that way, Dahmer took pictures during the dismemberment, kept the skulls and even the full skeletons in two cases, and ate certain organs and muscles.

Unlike most other serial killers, neither Dahmer nor Nilsen tortured animals. The clips above show Jeffrey Dahmer as a child kissing his dog Frisky and as an adult kissing his grandmother’s cat, and Dennis Nilsen kissing and playing with his dog Bleep.

Dahmer’s Contradictory Personality Traits

-Selfish, narcissistic, and attention-seeking, but paradoxically obliging, self-loathing, and a “loner”.

-Withdrawn, socially awkward, doesn’t understand/can’t connect with others on an emotional level; also a fantastic liar, incredibly convincing and persuasive.

-”Thoughts of violence”, brutality of crimes, serial killer—”passive”, soft-spoken, “generous”, animal lover, doesn’t want to make people suffer.

-Is completely homosexual but doesn’t seem to enjoy it very much. (Dislikes anal sex, said he felt pressured and rushed by sexual partners, post-coital melancholy. Also Thanksgiving candlestick incident.) Grandma’s cat is the closest he ever got to pussy.

-Necrophiliac, “profoundly average”, is so dull that he sucks the life out of people until they don’t even care anymore and just leave him alone, talks in a monotone; was class clown in high school, had a fan club revolving around his antics, bizarre sense of humor, people felt sorry for him, was weirdly endearing in a way.

-No dreams, hopes, or ambitions for the future; attempts to build a shrine to himself out of the bones of his conquests.

-“Didn’t look like he had a mean bone in his body”; murdered 17 people.

-Average intelligence, failtastic grades; very “articulate” manner of speech and resourceful.

-”Never been good at long-term planning” but quick-thinking enough to come up with an excuse for the foul-smelling trash bags in the back of the car at 3 am on the left side of a deserted road at the age of eighteen while he’s panicking because he just murdered someone and has been alone in a house with a broken refrigerator for a week or two because his parents divorced in the summer of ‘78. It’s just garbage, man.

-Doesn’t want to develop and maintain relationships, but can’t stand being alone.

-Abandons people; is afraid of being abandoned.

Excerpt from Ross Lynch’s interview with Variety at Tribeca Film Fest: 

“I kept losing sleep because — in my imagination — I kept seeing {dahmer} in the corner of my room. That was really frightening.” 

What did you know about Jeffrey Dahmer’s story?
Believe it or not, I didn’t know who Jeffrey Dahmer was. It was born in ’95. And I think he died in ’94.

How did you research Dahmer’s life?
It’s so twisted and scary to read about the things he did. He was also surprisingly smart and charming. There are many interviews about him confessing about what was going through his head. It was cool to listen to how he spoke. He had somewhat of that Midwestern twang, almost like a Minnesota accent, but not really. I did a subtle version of it.

What did you base his walk on?
I based it off Jeffrey Dahmer. There are a few interviews, it’s very short, but he walks right into the interview. He was a big guy and he was really burly. He was somewhat gentle in his younger years, because he was so shy.

Did you grapple with the idea that by telling a serial killer’s life, you might be celebrating him?
I wanted to show the sympathetic version of what happened to him. I don’t think it’s a celebration.

Guys if you can’t create a post for the TCC and have all of the facts in it be credibly cited and sourced to be 100% true (or explain thoroughly in the post that not everything about the case has been released in a way that can be easily verifiable) you should NOT be making a post.

Sorry. Stick to reblogging until you can learn to fact check.

Friendly reminder! ✿◕‿◕✿

Jeffrey Dahmer is a very well known serial killer and rapist but he wasn’t a pedophile and actually was disgusted by them(◕‿◕✿)

if u literally look at the definition of pedophilia or read literally any book about him you’ll understand that Jeff wasn’t attracted to prepubescent children(◡‿◡✿)

his crimes were selfish and wrong and inexcusable but he looked for sexually mature partners both willing and for victims(ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

just bc ur an anti-tcc blog or just a general piece of garbage who likes to spew labels onto things doesn’t mean you don’t have to do your research ✿◕‿◕✿

Thank you!(^_^)
