Although there is some value to the functionalists’ interpretation, it contains several weaknesses. The following review of some aspects of the plot will reveal some of those weaknesses. According to O’Brien (Hale 2013, 82-83), radical feminists argue that the core issue surrounding men and women lies within the domination of sexuality by men.

When men are incarcerated, gender issues often become heightened as they seek power or control in the prison. According to Kupers (2005), toxic masculinity involves “the need to aggressively compete and dominate others.” This concept may contribute to certain groups holding more power over others, and leads to the formation of dynamics between sub-communities within the prison. Toxic masculinity frequently results in male offenders resisting mental health treatment or other psychotherapy, since it could be perceived by other inmates as a “vulnerability”. Therefore, male offenders often underreport their emotional issues, and may not reach out for help until they have developed suicidal ideation or psychotic symptoms, (Kupers, 2005). Many prisoners adopt this survival mindset, in which there is no room to express pain or emotion that could in any way lessen their “masculinity”.This can become a major challenge in trying to incorporate treatment programs in prisons, especially if they are constantly being resisted.

Seeing that serial killers do have repeat patterns. Most serial killers do see as everyone beneath them some of them have a narcissistic disorder so when one sees a prostitute the prostitute probably does not even register as a human in a serial killers
