‘Trans Day of Vengeance’ Canceled After Organizers Claim ‘Threat to Life and Safety’

The cancelation follows the Nashville, Tennessee school shooting committed by biological woman who identifies as transgender.

  • Washington, D.C.’s “Trans Day of Vengeance” protest has been canceled, its organizers citing a “credible threat to life and safety.”
  • The Twitter account for Our Rights DC posted a series of tweets announcing the cancelation, writing, “The safety of our trans community is first priority. This threat is the direct result of the flood of raw hatred directed toward the trans community after the Tennessee shooting.”
  • “Individuals who had nothing to with that heinous act have been subjected to highly serious threats and blamed only because of their gender identity. This is one of the steps in genocide, and we will continue our efforts to protect trans lives,” the Twitter thread continued.
  • The group added, “While we wholeheartedly believe in the mission and message we put forth for trans day of vengeance, we must prioritize the safety of our community and the people that make it up.”
  • “In an ideal world we would have continued on in defiance of the attempt to silence our right to free expression,” Our Rights DC continued. “However, we lack the resources to ensure the safety of the protest and cannot in good conscience move forward with it.”
  • “In our continued efforts to preserve trans and non binary life we have notified the appropriate agencies,” the thread concluded.
  • The Canadian study, titled “Meaning in Life, Future Orientation and Support for Violent Radicalization among Canadian College Students During the COVID-19 Pandemic,” found transgender youth comprise the greatest risk group for “violent radicalization.”
  • “Violent radicalization,” or VR, is described in the study as “a complex and multidimensional phenomenon defined as a process whereby an individual or a group increases support for violence as a legitimate means to reach a specific (e.g., political, social, and religious) goal.”
  • The study analyzed the negative mental and emotional effects of COVID, explaining that greater rates of depression are associated with support for VR.
  • “Depression involves a lack of hope and pessimism that might make extremist ideologies that promote agency and empowerment especially appealing and is associated with a negative vision of the future and lack of purpose in life,” the study reads.
  • The February 2022 study has gained recognition after transgender-identified, biological female Audrey Hale killed six people at Covenant Christian School in Nashville, Tennessee.
  • Christian husband and wife authors Ryan and Bethany Bomberger published a book earlier this year titled “She is She.”
  • The children’s book celebrates “undeniable, biological, beautiful her,” Ryan Bomberger told The Daily Signal.
  • The book joins other truth-affirming children’s books “Always Erin” (2021) by Erin Brewer, “Elephants Are Not Birds” (2022) by Ashley St. Clair, and “Johnny the Walrus” by Matt Walsh (2022) in countering numerous pro-transgender books.
