2023.03.29 04:28 Timetraveler_2164 MASS KILLERS and possible LGBTQ QUESTIONING or GENDER CONFUSED connection

Ok, it’s time to touch the third rail. I want to talk about something that is really never mentioned when discussing mass shootings.
One of the reasons I think it never comes up is because everyone is so preoccupied with focusing on guns as the primary villain.
QUESTION: Is there a connection between LGBTQ questioning or Gender confused lifestyles and an increased propensity towards mass killing?
This really started for me after I read a post by someone telling conservatives to worry less about Trans books for 5 yr olds, and more about kids being killed in mass school shootings.
This hit close to home for me as my son was in a nearby class during the STEM Highlands Ranch school shooting, perpetrated by Trans Maya/Alec McKinney and gay/questioning Devon Erickson. I was the first parent at the school as I happened to be in the parking lot when the shooting began.
I had done some previous research because of what STEM was allowing and promoting in the school before the shooting occurred. Prior to the shooting it appeared as though the administration actively celebrated and encouraged alt lifestyles. Despite those efforts, the shooter still felt anger towards “normal kids” “because they never had to question who they were or feel the way she/he felt”
What I found during my research was eye opening to say the least.
DISCLAIMER This post is not stating that there IS a connection, this post is simply ASKING the question regarding a possible connection.
Apologies in advance for the very long post, but there is a lot of relevant information for each person.
I have separated the killers into two groups, Mass Killers and School Shooters.
Charles Whitman Date: 1 August 1966 Age: 25 Location: University of Texas at Austin Location: Austin, Texas
17 Killed: 31 Wounded
On August 1, 1966, after stabbing his mother and his wife to death the previous night, Charles Whitman, a Marine veteran, took rifles and other weapons to the observation deck atop the Main Building tower at the University of Texas at Austin, and then opened fire indiscriminately on people on the surrounding campus and streets. Over the next 96 minutes he shot and killed 15 people, including an unborn child, and injured 31 other people. The incident ended when two policemen and a civilian reached Whitman and fatally shot him. Whitman had a very close relationship with a priest at the church he attended as a teenager.
Joseph Gilles Leduc was a priest under the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.
Leduc was the priest at the local church young Charles Whitman attended. Charles, who was his alter boy, was also in the scouting program Leduc helped to lead at the church. At 12, Whitman became the youngest ever to attain the status of Eagle Scout.
The Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston released records of priests, including Leduc, who were credibly accused of sexual abuse of minors during the time that Whitman was his alter boy.
Joseph Giles Leduc * Birth Year:1929 * Ordination:1955 * Status: Deceased 1981
Whitman stayed in contact with the priest even during his time in the military. After leaving the military he moved blocks away from Leduc and began spending time at the priest’s house.
Leduc presided over Whitman's very hasty marriage. Before his marriage Whitman wrote a letter to his fiancee, commenting that he hopes he's not a homosexual. There's also the fateful connection between Whitman's mass murders, just after Leduc's posting to Alaska.
His younger brothers Patrick also was an alter boy for years under Leduc. Patrick married and had two daughters before coming out as gay and acknowledging being abused.
Anders Breivik
Date: 22 July 2011 Age: 32 Location: Government building/summer camp Location: Oslo and Utoya, Norway
77 Killed: 319 Wounded
“After the attack, several people reported to the police that they had homosexual contact with Breivik (Borchgrevink, 2013, p. 143).
He felt threatened and contaminated by modern gender roles, complaining that he had been “femi- nized.” His masculinity was so fragile that “when his mother makes him ‘emotionally unstable’, then in a way she also turns him into a woman” (Borchgrevink, 2013, p. 178). “
Omar Mateen
Date: 12 June 2016 Age: 29 Location: Pulse Nightclub Orlando, Florida
49 Killed
“Mateen, who was killed by police during the rampage on the Pulse nightclub early on June 12, was gay according to a male who came forward afterwards. He described his relationship with Mateen as "friends with benefits." He said the sexual relationship lasted about two months, and they met at a hotel in Orlando between 15 and 20 times.
Men and women have come forward to the FBI claiming to have had a relationship with Mateen
A former classmate at Indian River Community College told the Palm Beach Post that Mateen went to gay bars with classmates and once tried to pick him up. Four regulars at Pulse, the nightclub where the shooting occurred, told the Orlando Sentinel they had seen Mateen there before.
Ex-Wife Says Orlando Shooter Might Have Been Hiding Homosexuality From His Family
The man who killed 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Omar Mateen, was a regular patron of gay clubs in Florida for years, club employees, acquaintances and former classmates told ABC News.
Orlando gunman had used gay dating app and visited LGBT nightclub on other occasions, witnesses say.”
John Wayne Gacy
33 killed
“John Wayne Gacy was an American serial killer and sex offender who raped, tortured, and murdered at least 33 young men and boys in Norwood Park Township, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago.”
The murders were described as “bizarre sex slayings”, and “gay sex-murders”.
Jeffrey Dahmer
17 killed
Dahmer—also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal and the Milwaukee Monster—was an American serial killer and sex offender who murdered and dismembered 17 men and boys in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, area between 1978 to 1991.
Dahmer came out as gay for the first time to a judge in 1989 after he was convicted of sexual assault and enticing a child for immoral purposes, according to the Don Davis’ 1992 biography The Milwaukee Murders: Nightmare in Apartment 213: the Twisted True Story of the “Real-life Hannibal Lecter.”
He was known as a homosexual and part of Milwaukee’s gay community.
Anderson Lee Aldrich
5 Killed; 19 Wounded
Date: November 19–20, 2022, Age: 22 Location: Club Q, Colorado Springs, CO
Anderson Aldrich committed a mass shooting at Club Q, an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Five people were killed, and 25 others were injured, 19 of them by gunfire.
Anderson Lee Aldrich identifies as non-binary and uses the pronouns they/them.
Adam Lanza Date: 14 December 2012 Age: 20 School: Sandy Hook Elementary School Location: Newtown, Connecticut
26 killed
“Even though he communicated with people online, he did not have any friends. Regarding romance and sexuality, Lanza himself was at a loss: “I’m pretty confused when it comes to my sexuality” (Cole- man, 2015, p. 6). He had homosexual content on his computer and wrote at length about pedophilia, defending the practice but denying he was a pedophile. His sexual identity also seems enigmatic. In completing a form for college, on the item about gender, Lanza wrote, “I choose not to answer””(Goldstein, 2013, para. 2).
Audie Hale Date: 26 March 2023 Age: 28 School: Covenant Catholic School Location: Nashville, TN
Audrie was a Trans Male born a biological female who identified as he/him.
According to Hale's parents Hale was under a doctor's care for an "emotional disorder”.
6 Killed 0 wounded
Steven Kazmierczak Date: 14 Feb 2008 Age: 20 School: Northern Illinois University Location: DeKalb, Illinois
5 Killed 17 wounded
“experimented with gay encounters (Steven Kazmierczak)”
“Steven Kazmierczak had casual encounters with both males and females.
“Steve has been with a man before. He'll admit this to Jessica years later. But his friends in high school don't know.”
Eric Houston Date: 1 May 1992 Age: 20 School: Lindhurst High School Location: Oliverhurst, California
4 Killed
“He was confused about his sexual identity. A photograph of Houston at approximately 3 years of age shows him wearing a dress. Houston’s middle name was Christopher and on the back of the photo is written, “See, daddy, Chris was a good girl. You never believe he’s a boy” (California v. Houston, 2008, p. 100). This is a confusing message, and if Houston was only 3 (and developmentally delayed), then he would not have been the one to write the message. The potential impact of this may be seen in Houston’s obsession with the military, weapons, and SWAT teams as soon as he hit puberty. He may have sought out these masculine interests to compensate for his confused gender identity. Adding further complications, Houston was molested during high school by a male teacher. The molestations reportedly tore skin on his penis and caused bruising and painful urination (California v. Houston, 2007). The molestation raised profound questions for Houston about his sexuality. He experimented with homosexual contacts and blamed his teacher for his homosexual feelings.”
Eric Hainstock Date: 29 Sep 2006 Age: 15 School: Weston High Location: Cazenovia, Wisconsin 1 Killed
He was allegedly upset that Weston High School’s principal, John Klang, had done nothing to stop other students from teasing him about his sexuality.
Maya / Alec McKinney Age 16 Devon Erickson. Age 18 Date: 7 May 2019 School: STEM Highlands Ranch Location: Highlands Ranch, Colorado 1 Killed 8 wounded
Maya /Alec McKinney is Trans
“McKinney said he planned to target two students in particular as they had bullied and ridiculed him due to his gender identity and called him disgusting. McKinney said that "he wanted the kids at the school to experience bad things, have to suffer from the trauma like he has had to in his life." McKinney also stated he has heard voices and has suffered from homicidal and suicidal thoughts since the age of 12, and refused to take medication so that he wouldn't feel alone.”
“Alec McKinney that he had been sexually abused when he was 7 years old.”
Other Mass Killers outside the United States
Bruce McArthur
He was a homosexual and part of Toronto’s LGBTQ+ community.
8 killed. Toronto 2010-2017
Dennis Nilsen
12 killed. London 1978-1983
It is obviously an oversimplification to attempt to reduce, or attribute, any of the above crimes to any single causation, or even rudimentary mix of causation variables. However there are obvious commonalities that cannot be ignored.
Obviously, in ways that do not disparage the LGBTQ+ communities, society must be able to ask basic questions regarding ANY potential correlation between the above crimes and ANY behavior or lifestyle.
QUESTIONS THAT NEED TO BE ASKED; Q1-Based on percentage of population, do LGBTQ questioning or gender confused individuals commit mass killings at a rate that is higher than the NON-LGBTQ questioning or gender confused population?
I don’t know the answer, but we should certainly find out.
Q2-Does living an alternative lifestyle, like LGBTQ+, outside the “norms” of society, lead to increase feelings of being different, isolated, confused, self loathing, unaccepted, angry etc.
Again, I don’t know the answer, but we need to find out, and if it does, then people are probably justified in spending time worrying about Trans and LGBTQ+ alternative lifestyle books being read to 5 yr olds.

2023.03.28 21:33 MrBotchamania Looking for feedback on very rough draft of proposal for regulations to limit mass casualty events

I drafted these proposals in order to channel my frustration with the tragic recent events into something productive or at the very least educational.
The proposals would put into place regulations that I believe could prevent or limit mass casualty events in the future.
Full disclosure, I have no legal experience or government background. I’m looking for any feedback or recommendations on how to improve and possibly submit these items. However, I admit my knowledge of many laws or regulations in Tennessee is limited.
The proposals are as follows:
  1. Increased resources for firearm dispossession.
If it is not already available, grant local and state police access to TBI records involving the purchase of semi automatic firearms. Create a program to cross reference this information with police data and possibly medical records in order for police to track and monitor weapons over time and to assist in the dispossession of firearms from those barred from owning such weapons by federal and state law.
  1. Drone restrictions
Long range and first person sUAS drone use banned during large gatherings(more than 1000 people) and anti drone technologies deployed during large gatherings in tourist areas. Exceptions granted to police, news and licensed businesses.
  1. Large vehicle restrictions
Ban for the use of vehicles with a gross vehicle weight > 10,001 lbs from tourist areas(downtown/broadway/stadiums) during large gatherings(more than 1000 people). This would exclude government vehicles and vehicles owned by businesses operating at such times. Enforced by police before and during large gatherings.
  1. Gun retrieval program expansion
The current gun retrieval program in operation by the Nashville government to be given a stipend to offer a cash reward for turning in firearms and other dangerous military ordinance as well as complete amnesty for possession of such material when turning it in(amnesty is probably already in place but just to be sure). All firearms collected through the program are to be destroyed if that is not already the case.
Thank you for your time, and for any feedback anyone might have.
