A serial killer is usually more intelligent than a serial rapist.
Round one is either for acceptance or Con's opening case. I dont' mind which because I'll be winning this either way. ;)
Killing is, simply put, the more rational, efficient and terrifying outlet for a psychopath to use to feel like the great monster they want to become famous for being (or unknown for being but enjoy being).
Another factor is the learning and mastering if weapons and combat is far more difficult intellectually than mastering drugging someone and abusing them once they’re already tied up. Some serial killers drug their victims first to make it easier but may need their victims sober for the simple thrill of the chase. There is far more demanding training to be an amazing serial killer than there is to be an amazing serial rapist.
Both serial killers and serial rapists obsess over a particular ‘type’ of victim. They have some nightmare(s) from childhood that they need to get the hell over but can’t. Killing that person is a far more understandable way to ‘get back’ at the world and also ensure no one is left alive who knows that filthy part of you exists while raping them is frankly just barbaric and doesn’t ‘get back’ at anyone other than the one you’re raping. Killing is in itself symbolic to begin with as it’s only going to really harm those alive who knew the people the long run. Raping just targets that victim type and irrationally tries to solve the unsolvable (the trauma of the persons’ childhood).
Serial killers tend to train form the get go in life. A dead rabbit here, a dead dog there but serial rapists first practice on the actual real human victims… That’s a major problem. They not only have never done it before and may fail to complete the rape but the person may themselves be a serial rapist or killer and take revenge on them. On top of this the fact they don’t kill is horrendously irrational, that victims can run and tell any time they want. Serial killers can target both animals and humans as well as both people they know well and people they barely know. Rapists can only target either people who barely know them or people so mentally weak it’s simply pathetic and not a fair fight to begin with.
