It’s very early in the year but we’re already calling the winner for best online feud of 2019.
The self-described “Venom fucker” community (that is, people who want to have sexual relations with the eponymous slimy alien bodybuilder monster from that comic book movie) are outraged at the people who want to bang real-life serial killer Ted Bundy.
And honestly? They’re not wrong.
Over the weekend, a tweet gained traction in which one such Venom fucker came for the neck of the “Ted Bundy fuckers” trying to defend themselves by comparing the two monster-loving fandoms.
Because one is a fictional, extraterrestrial symbiote from the Marvel universe, while the other is a convicted serial killer executed for the rape and murder of dozens of women in the 1970s.
Like we said, it’s a goddamn point.

The notorious serial killer recently gained a worrying influx of thirsty fans after the release of a Netflix documentary about his (again) very real, very disturbing crimes against humanity. It also doesn’t hurt that a feature film about Bundy just premiered at Sundance and stars the extremely fuckable Zac Efron.
Back in the day, Bundy had droves of actual female fans declaring their love for him during his murder trial, even leading him to propose and marry a woman while he was trying to defend himself against the charges. But the level of online horniness sparked by the doc even made Netflix urge viewers to find less murder-y guys to lust after on their service.
take me back to when everyone talked about wanting to get rawed by venom i don’t wanna see weirdos woobifying ted bundy

Meanwhile, Venom-sexuals became a thing all the way back in April 2018, when the first trailer for Sony’s film centered on the Marvel character dropped. If anything, it seemed like his fuckability was in spite of the fact that the symbiote happened to share a body with Hollywood heartthrob Tom Hardy.
And when it comes to Venom fuckers, who are we to judge? The writer of this very article also vehemently defended wanting to fuck that fish guy from The Shape of Water.
Sure, director Guillermo del Toro’s creature never went around eating people’s heads like Venom likes to. But, like, a symbiote’s gotta eat. And there’s nothing hotter than a man (sentient alien creature?) who knows what he wants and goes for it.
LRT: really wasn’t ready for the 2019 venom vs bundy discourse but here we are

What’s very much not hot, though, is the real-life crimes of killing actual human beings.
Or, to quote another Venom stan on Twitter, “The big difference between Venom and Ted Bundy is that Venom is a FICTIONAL CHARACTER and Ted Bundy was a REAL PERSON WHO REALLY KILLED AND TORTURED WOMEN.”
But the Venom Fucker v Ted Bundy Fucker War of 2019 is about so much more than determining who has the higher moral ground.
Really, it’s about the friends we made along the way while watching two niche monster-fetish communities fight each other tooth and nail.
