According to his online voter registration Robert Lewis Dear identifies as a woman.

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is the latest presidential candidate trying to downplay the role anti-abortion rhetoric may have played in motivating the Planned Parenthood shooting in Colorado Springs Friday afternoon.
When a reporter asked him at an Iowa campaign stop Sunday evening about suspect Robert Lewis Dear saying he was motivated by “no more baby parts,”
Cruz countered that he’s also been reported to be a “transgendered [sic] leftist activist.” Cruz explained, “We know that he was a man registered to vote as a woman.”
This discrepancy on Dear’s voter registration was first reported by The Gateway Pundit, a self-described “right-of-center news website,” under the claim that he “identifies as [a] woman.”
Conservatives have since run with the claim that Dear is transgender. There is actually no evidence to suggest that he is transgender, nor a “leftist,” nor any kind of activist. In fact, all of the available information suggests he was none of those things.We'll see, Think Progress. We'll see.
Police Say They Won’t Release Motive In Colorado Springs Shooting
Colorado Springs police say they will not disclose why a gunman opened fire at a Planned Parenthood clinic, killing three people.
Police say in a statement Sunday that they are sealing the warrants related to the case against 57-year-old Robert Lewis Dear. They say they are not providing information on the weapon used in Friday’s shooting, a timeline of events or a motive of the suspect.There's got to be some reason the PD will not release information.
You think it's because Dear is a Christian Anti-Abortion Activist?
Or do you think it's because he's a Transgendered Activist?
Of do you think it's just because he's a nut and the authorities are simply showing some polite discretion?
