According to this article, Afton Elaine Burton (“Star”) was only attemping to marry Charlie Manson in order to obtain control of his remains when he dies. This is creepy. However, does this make her creepier, less creepy, or the same amount of creepy as if she was marrying Charlie Manson for love?
I mean, seriously…how creepy is someone who would marry Charlie Manson? However, someone who would do it hoping to cash in or for noteriety isn’t quite as disturbing as someone who wants to marry Charlie Manson for love. The former is disturbing…but nowhere near as much as the latter.
And the situation here? Marrying someone just to be able to control their remains once they pass on is creepy, but is it any creepier than being willing to marry Charlie Manson at all? Honestly, I’m not sure.
There is so much creepiness here that it’s kind of hard to judge what would creep me out most.
