Some leftist trans activists responded to the horrific killing at a Christian school in Nashville by complaining that the transgender shooter was being misgendered.
Audrey Hale, 28, murdered three children and three adults at The Covenant School in an apparent hate-motivated attack.
Given that Hale, a biological female who has been identifying as a man in recent months, media outlets expressed “confusion” about how to refer to the shooter as a man or a woman
However, some trans activists appeared to be more upset that the killer was being misgendered, rather than the actual shooting which left six dead.
“5 times @cnn misgendered. No correction,” whined Karen Lopez.
“A mass shooting is horrible. Misgendering does not make anything better.”
“It seems like maybe there’s plenty of confusion about whether or not the shooter is a transgender man or woman,” she added.
“And finding out that the police there don’t know how to use the right words does not shock me. But mixing genders in the same story is still a problem.”
Lopez’s remarks were met with swift replies:
Another user replied:
“Transgender dude murders three 8/9 year olds and 3 adults
Leftist: “CNN misgendered him!
You’re sick, get help.”
Other replies were more to the point:
A statement from the Transgender Resistance Network demanded media respect the murderer’s “self-identified pronouns.”
Another trans activist expressed anger that the child killer’s pronouns were not respected.
“Another day, another mass shooting. The shooter has been identified by his deadname,” tweeted Spencer Bergstedt, J.D., who has “he/him” pronouns in his bio.
“It appears he used he/him pronouns & was a former student at the school. Of course, MSM & the LEO’s discussing the issue are misgendering the murderer. I’m sad & angry on so many levels.”
The response to the activists’ tweets was brutal.
