A group of transgender activists sprawled out on the floor of the Texas state capitol earlier this week in what they called a “die-in.”
The activists arrived at the capitol late Monday night and stayed into Tuesday morning to protest a bill that would ban minors from receiving sex-change surgeries and puberty blockers in the state. The transgender activists’ “die-in” was supposed to symbolize how many transgender lives would be lost if the state passes HB 1686.

The stunt received harsh criticism on social media as it came hours after a trans-identifying shooter murdered three adults and three 9-year-old children at a Christian elementary school in Nashville, Tennessee.
“A trans die-in after a trans person killed six people including three children is the height of absurdity. Maybe if trans people really wanted to stop trans people from dying, they should encourage more access to suicide hotlines,” said Brandon Morse, deputy managing editor for RedState.

Another popular Twitter account added: “I really want to say this in the nicest way possible: If a church staged a ‘die in’ after a Christian killed a bunch of people at a gay bar, that would be interpreted as a mockery of the victims. That is what is happening here.”
“A good reminder again that so much of the trans movement is based in narcissism,” conservative radio host Erick Erickson blasted.
Nashville authorities confirmed Monday afternoon that the 28-year-old woman who killed six people at the Covenant School identified as transgender. Nashville Police Chief John Drake said the shooting was a “targeted attack.” The shooter was a former student of the school who could have possibly had “resentment” for having to attend there, according to Drake.
During a search of the shooter’s parent’s home, law enforcement said they found “a manifesto” along with maps of the school drawn in detail that included points of entry. The police chief said authorities have a theory on the shooter’s motive, but they are not ready to share it yet.
