A transsexual Georgia Tech student decided to end it all. The student, Scout Schultz, wrote three suicide notes, called the cops to report a person with a gun. The writer is unsure as to whether Scout is male or female or which fashionable pronoun to use this week in describing Scout, so refrains.
Let me resolve the writer’s dilemma. This “asshole” Scout, gave the police a description that closely resembled Scout. Scout is crazier than a shithouse rat, having attempted suicide on numerous occasions in the past. The police tried to talk the asshole down but failed with predictable results.

That works, asshole is gender neutral and perfectly describes an individual who, living a lie, decides to go out on a lie. No sympathy, want it, look in the dictionary between shit and syphilis.
