We were a little hesitant when we first saw tweets suggesting that the Covenant School shooter, who killed six people Monday in Nashville, was trans. But then the police confirmed it, apparently from the shooter’s manifesto. Those transphobic Tennessee cops still referred to Audrey Hall as a woman in their presser, though.
Thankfully, USA TODAY cleared it all up:
Police on Monday afternoon said that the shooter was a transgender man. Officials had initially misidentified the gender of the shooter.

Oh no, that’s terrible. Did anything else happen today?
So a woman.

Until this version of the media is on the ash heap of history, we will not be safe.

Someone seems to be more concerned about properly gendering the monster who did this than focusing on the children murdered for simply loving Jesus

A child murderer is a child murderer. They’re not entitled to anything, especially preferred pronouns.

It was a woman who insisted she wasn’t a woman, for those who have difficulty applying the media’s pretzel logic to all this bullshit.

Was the killer XX or XY chromosomed, guys?
You can’t even report clearly on a killer’s sex. You’re pathetic.

This was a hate crime against Christians perpetrated by a biological woman pretending to be a man.

Delete this tweet and fire whoever wrote it.
You will not turn this murderer into a victim.
