The Tennessee Conservative [By Paula Gomes] –

The angry statements contained within the leaked pages of Covenant School shooter Audrey Hale’s manifesto suggest a negative impact of the “gender-affirming” care she may have been receiving.

At the time of the shooting, Hale identified as male, and dressed like a man when she showed up at the school to take innocent lives. While an autopsy showed that Hale had not undergone any surgeries as part of any gender transition, “gender-affirming” care for women who wish to present as male includes being prescribed the hormone testosterone.

Taking enough testosterone so as to “appear” male is not without side effects for women. This can include mood swings, anger and hostility. The larger the dose, the more likely the increase in these side effects. Women who are prescribed hormones as part of “gender-affirming” care report feelings of frustration, anger, and irritability for seemingly no reason. Depending on the dose, women have also suffered from depression, and in extreme cases, even destabilization of bipolar or schizoaffective disorder.

During Hale’s autopsy, authorities tested her body for illegal and controlled substances but not for any prescription medications used for treating mental conditions, or hormone therapy.

Nashville Police Chief John Drake stated in a news conference that Hale had been “under doctor’s care for an emotional disorder.”

It is extremely rare for mass shooters to be female. According to a 2022 report, 97.7% of all mass shooters in the United States have been men. The biochemistry of men is a factor in violent crime. Testosterone not only gives men larger muscles, and a higher percentage of red blood cells, it also contributes to aggression.

From the small portion of Hale’s writings that have been seen, we see that she was determined to carry out her appalling plan despite feeling high levels of anxiety. “Can’t believe I’m doing this, but I’m ready… I hope my victims aren’t,” wrote Hale. “God let my wrath take over my anxiety.”

Some medical professionals have gone on record to call gender transition and affirmation experimental therapies that may increase the risk of suicide and have not been proven to change mental health outcomes for the better.

    The LGBT crowd will never convince tens of millions of Americans – I hope the number is closer to 100MM – that their lifestyle is normal and that they can produce viable family units; I don’t even think same-sex couple should be allowed to adopt children.

    The only good tranny is the one under my car.

    Gender affirmation was a large part of what contributed to this mass shooting another major contribution was the critical race theory indoctrination that she obviously went through, reading the manifesto released she called these children “crackers” and stated they had “white privilege”
    Critical race theory in general teachers that all white people are oppressors who use their “white privilege” to retain power over minorities and that white supremacy is the goal of all white ppl and that minorities cannot be racist because they do not have systemic power to oppress others. Which leads to a victim mentality where people see one class or race of people as the oppressors and themselves as the oppressed .
    And by using phrases such as “transgenicide” they had cemented that victim ideology in the transgender community
    Yes I do agree with your article but there is more nuance to it as I stated

    Taking Testosterone also has negative effects on men. You might not think so, but it has been documented. They become more aggressive and in others terms, they would get “mean”. Real mean. This comment comes from women who were around them and even the men around them noted their heightened aggressiveness! This experimenting needs to stop!

    Of COURSE they didn’t test for any ‘prescribed drugs for mental disorders.’ EVERY SINGLE mass shooter has been on SSRI’s. More to the point, they either had just started them or suddenly stopped them. My bet is this one had the same.

    SSRI’s should be BANNED!
