The rate of adoption in the US is 3%, so for 16% of serial killers to be adopted means adopted serial killers are over represented.

Posted by: elchan (a.k.a elchan2012) on May 11, 13:35 in response to elchan's post The fact is that 16% of all serial killers are adopted.

This, in fact, means that most serial killers are adopted.

Offended easily much? Online petition to scold Marvel for using a single word in The Avengers. Not the Q word but the A word. *spoiler* Tanker May 11, 13:12

not that I take this seriously at all, but Thor did stand up for Loki for the most part...felt it was a private family matter...hehe {nm} tealfan May 11, 13:19

I read somewhere that 84 % of those freaks were raised by their natural parent(s)... {nm} JMT-NL May 11, 13:25

So.. The odds say that serial killers come from non-adopted homes??? {nm} dioneta May 11, 13:25

Truer quantitative analysis would be what % of all adopted kids were serial killers and what % of all non-adopted kids were serial killers. Catzan May 11, 13:35

It actually could still be an anomaly.. Are there stats on adoptive environments over representing in other maladaptive behaviors? {nm} dioneta May 11, 13:40

Most current behaviorists would say that there are biological components involved that over represent in serial killers too {nm} dioneta May 11, 13:42

its comes from the fact that most sk's are abused, which happens more often in a family with non-related parents. {nm} jwammo May 11, 13:44

based on what data? {nm} dioneta May 11, 13:52

you can look at the references in this link. I assume you don't need the data that most sk's are abused. jwammo May 11, 13:56

notice i didn't say adopted, btw. the group that are most prone to abuse are foster children. {nm} jwammo May 11, 13:59

Ok.. You were answering a separate question then.... We can let it go.. Lets talk movies :) {nm} dioneta May 11, 14:06

They're just stats. Here's an article with a paragraph. elchan May 11, 13:46

I approve of the comments that people are leaving on that page ripping the whole idea of demanding an apology BSmurf May 11, 13:32

Hmmm...just think of all the ancient cultures we can demand apologies of for poorly representing the foibles of one group or another... Catzan May 11, 13:40

What the freck is wrong with people.... Its a joke, and it was funny. The fact that people actually get offended by this makes me idrom May 11, 13:42

What if he would have said "He's gay" instead? {nm} PRodQuanta May 11, 14:11

That would make more sense. {nm} elchan May 11, 14:13

What's the difference, though? {nm} PRodQuanta May 11, 14:18

Why? STONYRN May 11, 21:47

How does being gay have any relevance? Why did that even pop in your head? {nm} STONYRN May 11, 20:20

Because it's more or less the same as calling someone adopted. You don't say "gay" to mean "bad", just like you should say "adopted". PRodQuanta May 12, 08:53

"should' should be "shouldnt" above {nm} PRodQuanta May 12, 08:54

hahaha! Loki himself signed the petition, if you go to the link, scroll to the bottom an you'll see his name LOL! {nm} nicadmous May 11, 14:46

almost wish the person who posted that would say that he was kidnapped and not adopted lol {nm} nicadmous May 11, 15:06

What percentage of kidnappers were adopted? {nm} elchan May 11, 15:11

WOW, what a complete failure at comprehension! Thor said Loki's "adopted" so that he'd dissociate himself from Loki. That is all. NM blinkuldhc May 13, 09:41
