Am I really the only person discussing her gender in any way?
You said she was "just a woman". Why did it matter if she was a woman or a man? Would you feel the same for the shooter if it was just a man who snapped and had his kid with him. I don't think so.
By the way, who said she just snapped?
I thought he used the phrase "just some woman" much like, in a similar situation with a man involved, you would say "just some man".
I think you're reading too much into it.
Edit: As in, "damn, it wasn't a bomb, just some woman who apparently went crazy".
