Is there a link between transgenderism and violence? 

Summarised by Centrist 

In the article by Darlene McCormick Sanchez, she discusses concerns over a perceived link between transgenderism and violence, particularly in the context of mass shootings. 

Since 2018, there have been 5 instances where individuals identifying as transgender or gender-confused were involved in violent acts, including mass shootings in the US. 

“And although 0.6 percent of the 13-and-older population identifies as transgender, 5.4 percent of the mass shootings in recent years involved gender-confused individuals,” says Sanchez. 

Authorities are slow to confirm so-called gender identities and motives in these cases while some news outlets and commentators are eager to point out these make up only a fraction of mass shooters.

Some experts suggest that mental health issues related to gender dysphoria, combined with hormone treatments, could potentially contribute to a ‘volatile cocktail’ of mental health issues and body-altering chemicals. Testosterone treatments can lead to increased aggression, a phenomenon sometimes referred to as “roid rage.”

There are suggestions about the impact of violent rhetoric in transgender activist circles and that individuals who feel rejected or unsupported by society may become violent.

There’s also the possibility that some transgender individuals view themselves as oppressed and  this may contribute to violence.
