“This is for real. I mean, I’ve got a sock fetish. No question about it. I must have six or seven pairs right here with me in my cell. I am really sick when it comes to socks. These are some of the things for people who really want to know what makes Ted Bundy tick. They’re parts of the combination to the deepest, most secret recesses of my mind. I’m very close to my feet. Right now. I’m lying on… my back with my foot propped up on the bars. And I’m studying my toes. For a good portion of the night. They’re probably the most attractive feet you’ve ever seen.
Socks are such a serious part of my life. They’re so very important to me. They kept reading the list of socks and all and I felt proud. Honestly, it didn’t even begin to occur to me that people might wonder why I had all these socks. I just felt proud that I owned all those socks.
The only time I began to have a little bout of sheepishness was when he read about a white sock with a blue band and green stripe on the toe. Those are odor eaters – and that was getting too personal.”-Ted Bundy
I just want to know where I can find the globe magazine with Ted Bundy
Guys I’ll try to do the tag challenge things tomorrow, if I manage to remember!
Found this in a bathroom at my college. A lot of guys had eating disorders in football and wrestling at my school and even in the rec league. I remember guys taking laxatives before weigh ins even.
Male eating disorder awareness ~
Wrestling is infamous for that kind of shit. It’s one of the reasons my brother left the sport— his coaches were ENCOURAGING him to engage in unsafe behavior.
I’ve seen a lot of it the other way round, especially in rugby, I know several men who were encouraged to go to unsafe measures to gain weight.
Yes. ^^^ The masculinization of eating disorders. I knew some wrestling guys back in high school - it became this competition as to who could lose then keep of their weight the best. The guys would have competitions to see who could go the longest without eating, and if you lost, of course, you were a “pussy”
Thankfully a suspension went on while they reviewed these practices that were of course encouraged by the coaches.
Almost every wrestler I’ve met has engaged in ridiculously dangerous behavior at the encouragement of their coaches and even their own parents. My cousin would do unsafe amounts of exercise and then barely eat or only eat baby food as he dropped weight at alarming rates. But no one ever acknowledges these behaviors as being dangerous because it’s “for a sport”. We need to put an end to this.
I remember when my boyfriend was in high school he was on the varsity wrestling team and he would do crazy stuff to lose weight. He wouldn’t eat properly, he wouldn’t stay hydrated. I hated it so much, I was really worried for him. He would go for a day or two with only eating an orange and a sip of water. He was easily irritable and unhappy all the time. I’m so glad he doesn’t wrestle anymore even though he absolutely loved the sport.
