CNN Host, Guest Struggle With Club Q Shooter’s Non-Binary Identity: ‘That’s A Man’ | Eastern North Carolina Now

    CNN host Alisyn Camerota and a guest on the network struggled with the gender non-conforming identity of the Colorado "Club Q" shooting suspect.

    Networks like CNN adhere to identifying people with their "preferred pronouns" and advance radical gender theory, but seem to have abandoned these rules when it comes to the nightclub shooting. Notably, the legacy media painted the shooting as a targeted hate crime against the LGBT community before recent developments about the alleged shooter, who will not be named per Daily Wire policy.

    "The attorneys for the shooter are now saying that the shooter is non-binary, and the shooter would like to use the pronouns 'they/them' for the court and all court papers, and that's what [redacted]'s attorneys are saying. Do you have any thoughts on that?" Camerota asked CNN guest Natalee Bingham, according to Post Millennial. The guest, who identifies as a trans woman, is a friend of a victim in the tragic shooting.

    "I think that it's completely ludicrous," Bingham responded. "I believe they're just saying that because they want to have the easy way out on this. That's really, really offending, especially being a transgender woman myself, that a male, which it was obvious with the mugshot, that's a man."

    "That's not a non-binary person because in no way, shape, or form could they appear as a woman the next day," the guest continued. "It's really offensive to really hear that, that they're playing that role. If they're non-binary, why would you go after the club where you feel safe? Why would you do that to a community where you are welcomed in if you are non-binary?"

    Camerota earlier in the week had a notable reaction when she learned about the shooter's gender identity.

    "So, attorneys for the accused shooter, [redacted], say in new court filings tonight that the suspect now identifies as non-binary," the CNN host said. "I don't know what to say about that, I mean, that's not anything that we had heard from his background, you know people have been looking into his background."

    "I don't know what to say about that, I mean, that's what he's now saying," Camerota added, refusing to use the preferred pronouns CNN typically has no issue with.

    Some on the Right highlighted the Left's change on the shooting narrative and their refusal to accept self-proclaimed gender identity.

    "Sorry but if you're on the Left then you have no right to deny the shooter's non-binary identity," Daily Wire host Matt Walsh argued. "You set a precedent here and we will hold you to it. You have to respect his identity. I don't. You do. These are your rules. Now take your medicine and shut up."

    "You have already made it clear that if a male criminal comes out as a woman and is transferred to a women's prison, we may not speculate that his trans identification is a ploy to gain access to female inmates. Same for men in women's locker rooms," Walsh added. "Your rules are clear: ALL self-identities are valid and cannot be questioned, ever, under any circumstances. Again: your rules. You are stuck with this. The shooter is non-binary. You have no choice but to accept it. Sorry."
