Androgynous Person Robs Bank with Crossbow

2/9/2010 2:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It's like a real life Robin Hood -- some schmuck in Finland robbed from the rich (a bank) and gave to the poor (itself) and did it all with a spring-loaded bow and arrow.

Crossbow and Bank

And there's another catch: Cops are unsure if the suspect, who's still at large, is a man or a woman. Officials in Finland tell TMZ the suspect was dressed like a woman ... but spoke like a man.

One thing's for sure -- it sure takes balls to rob a bank in broad daylight with medieval weaponry.

FYI: It seems the scheme worked -- the robber reportedly got away with the equivalent of around $6800 in cash.

I love how someone's humanity apparently evaporates when their gender isn't clear or instantly decipherable. You know, TMZ, now that you're being recognized as a credible source of news in the world, you might want to check your uber-phobic "journalists". Last I heard, we're all human beings. Not its. Just because you don't know what's between someone's legs (which isn't your business) doesn't mean that you have the right to render them inhuman by calling them "it" instead of "they" or "them". Here's a stretch: try writing an entire article about anyone without using gender pronouns.

Check thyself before you wreck thyself.

Why does the guy in the back look so calm? IS this a before or after robbery pic?

Oh noooo! I've been so proud of Finland's relatively good reputation (if you don't count the shcool shootings) but I guess we have some nutjobs here too.

According to the Finnish Police the robber was a man dressed as a woman. He sounded much more like a man.

He is still on the run.

Does anyone ever get away with robbing a bank? Are these people the biggest fools on earth or what? Is this some fake thing to get publicity or is the person smacked out of her mind?
