Orlando Specifics

If the Orlando massacre was specifically an attack on LGBT people then it was also specifically an attack by a Muslim man and possibly an attack specifically against gay men by, specifically, a man ashamed that he himself was gay.

People who are not gay get murdered by straight women who are not Muslims but if we want to rid the world of acts of terror we must be willing to address the specific. There is a time to generalise and there is a time to name names.
