Foreign. The mass shooting at a gay club in Colorado is blamed by the US government on “anti-HGBTQ rhetoric”. But now it turns out that the suspect himself identifies as “non-binary” – that is, neither man nor woman – and thus himself is part of the LGBTQ movement. He demands to be called “Mx Aldrich” and is referred to by gender-neutral pronouns.

Five people were killed and another 25 injured in Tuesday's shooting at the Club Q gay club in Colorado Springs.
Joe Biden and other representatives of the US leftist government were quick to blame the act on the right's rhetoric around LGBTQ issues.
Transportation Minister Pete Buttigieg, for example, tweeted to his political opponents that they should not “dare pretend to be surprised” by the violence that he believes follows from their rhetoric against LGBTQ people.
But the suspected shooter, 22-year-old Anderson Lee Aldrich, now appears to self-identify as “non-binary,” reports Fox News.
His defenders are careful to point out he should be titled ” Mx Aldrich” instead of Mr. Aldrich and that the gender-neutral pronouns “they/them” should be used when he is mentioned.
Anderson Lee Aldrich is still suspected of hate crimes, but according to Fox News, the authorities have not wanted to answer why .
