One thing that’s rarely talked about with serial killers is the narcissism that it takes to believe that you deserve to claim human lives as your own. While brutal serial killers are committing horrific crimes, they’re also stripping their victims of their very humanity in a variety of grotesque ways. For some killers, the way they dehumanize a person is built into their specific mania. For others, the dehumanization is a part of the “game” that they’re playing with their victims. Basically, dehumanization games are something to help a killer pass the time until they get bored and end the life of the person in their grasp. There are many ways to dehumanize a person, and - depending on the style of killer - you may see one specific dehumanization technique or a healthy medley of nightmare fuel used to make a person forget that they were ever born.
It’s likely that killers like Jeffrey Dahmer, and H.H. Holmes never even saw their victims as people, so the act of dehumanization came as second nature. But some killers, like David Parker Ray, enjoyed stealing a person’s humanity one torturous act at a time. As you’ll soon come to find out, some killers built elaborate homes and machines to beat the humanity out of their victims until they were nothing more than sniveling animals. Each one of these acts of dehumanization is real, and they’ve happened multiple times. The only take away from this is to be careful who you talk to on the street.
