Ted Kaczynski (USA)


Convicted unabomber Ted Kaczynski first had fantasies about murder after he was unable to summon the courage to talk to a University of Michigan psychiatrist about his desire for a sex-change operation. This comes from court-appointed Dr. Sally Johnson, who interviewed Kaczynski at the court’s request to determine his mental capacity to stand trial. Kaczynski also related to Johnson dreams in which “some psychologist… would either be trying to convince me that I was ‘sick’ or would be trying to control my mind…” No further information was related about Kaczynski’s feelings about his gender or whether he made further remarks about it. Dr. Johnson’s 47-page report was submitted to the court.
