Sure, the crazy transgender person who barged into a Nashville school Monday morning and started shooting may have killed three small children and three more innocent adults during her deadly rampage, but the real tragedy here is that no one is acknowledging her imaginary penis, and is instead "misgendering" her in the news and on social media.
Said no sane person ever.
Then again, no one can accuse rabid leftists of having any shred of common sense or basic decency. It took about four seconds after reports broke that the Covington School shooter was a biological female who thought she was a man and went by male pronouns before gender-obsessed ideologues lit up social media in furor over the media reporting the shooter was a woman. Which, in all fairness to anyone who cares about facts and science, she was - but we're supposed to ignore that and respect her "identity," even as the bodies of her 9-year-old victims lay cold in a hospital morgue.
And so, here we are.
5 times @cnn misgendered. No correction.— Karen Lopez (@datachick) March 28, 2023
A mass shooting is horrible.
Misgendering does not make anything better.
Another day, another mass shooting. The shooter has been identified by his deadname. 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.— Spencer Bergstedt, J.D. 🏳️🌈 🏳️⚧️🖋⚖️ He/Him (@SpenceBergstedt) March 27, 2023
It's so infuriating that the media gets to both misgender Aiden Hale as a "rare female mass killer" *AND* misidentify him as a trans fem whose status as mass killer proves trans women are men because women don't do that— Nightling Bug 🗝️ (@NightlingBug) March 27, 2023
BREAKING: The alleged mass shooter of today's mass shooting at a Christian school in Nashville has been identified as Audrey E. Hale (He/Him).— Erica Marsh (@ericareport) March 27, 2023
Even the New York Times issued a kinda-sorta “correction” to their earlier reporting (though interestingly, they also refused to use the shooter's "preferred" pronouns throughout their piece, instead sticking with gender-neural language and proper names).
There was confusion later on Monday about the gender identity of the assailant in the Nashville shooting. Officials had used “she” and “her” to refer to the suspect, who, according to a social media post and a LinkedIn profile, appeared to identify as a man in recent months.— The New York Times (@nytimes) March 28, 2023
USA Today, however, went whole-hog in favor of gender "identity."
Police on Monday afternoon said that the shooter was a transgender man. Officials had initially misidentified the gender of the shooter.— USA TODAY (@USATODAY) March 27, 2023
Taking a slightly more sinister angle, Newsweek tacitly blamed the shooting on local laws against castrating and exposing oneself to children, which is somehow less dangerous than law-abiding Americans owning firearms.

So since we seem to be struggling in this department as a society, here are a few basic facts.
The Nashville school shooter, whose name isn't worth mentioning, was a woman, regardless of what name she went by or what pronouns she slapped in her bio.
I say “was” because she’s dead, killed by the cops after massacring innocent 9-year-old children in a classroom.
And if “misgendering” her causes her rotting corpse to spin in its grave, all the better.
