50 killed and 53 injured at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida by a man claiming to be a member of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS. The worst shooting in American history since the Virginia Tech massacre of 2007.

Homophobia is still alive and well. Let's stay strong and keep the faith alive of a better future.

While I'm aware that homophobia is still a very real thing I dont base the world's view from a hatemongering zealot. that's something that is never going to change.

it doesn't matter whether its the opinion of the majority or of the minority. even if just a minority of people are actually externalized, agressive and homicidal homophobes, its still a problem. it should be zero.

This case shows well that one homophobe can well equate to 100 injured, 50 dead. Heck it could've been worse, even.

And homophobia exists in many other ways, in all shades of grey subtlety.

anyway also yay so for a few weeks ill probably be reminded of the shooting i witnessed again and again as i surf the internet yayyyy ; v ;)b

My heart really goes out to the victim's friends and families who are affected by this tragedy. It's a crying shame I live on the same planet as Mateen.

What, radical muslims again? Jfc are they a blight on this earth.

There was also a similar massacre in a gay bar called Madame in my city, but it wasn't done by muslims. Or at least our criminal police didn't release the information that it was muslims.

An AR-15 is the civilian variant of the military M-16 rifle. It is one of the most popular weapons in the United States and can be customized with a variety of accessories including different grips and sights.

Islam, the religion of peace. You know, if asked, the majority of muslims would say that what that dude did was a good thing. Zealot or not.

Which is insane and scary to think.

also, Mirak, the US isn't perfect but I like having the right to a firearm that I can protect myself with, my family and if I had the power to stop someone like this.
I'm not sure where you live, somewhere with Spanish speaking or influence, right?

What is your implication? That i am unable to understand because i'm not american?
I'm fully aware of america's controversial gun culture. Doesn't mean i am barred from thinking getting weapons like that so easily is a little bit fucked up.

Well no, just that your country probably isn't perfect either. Especially if you live in Mexico.

No, you can have your own opinion. You just talk shit about the US alot and your country is just as shitty about things, if not worse.

An interesting observation, albeit not based in reality.

I foresee only good things for this thread.

Apart from "talking shit" about your american taco the other day i don't recall making any sort of lots of "shit talk" about the us recently, so you're either full of shit or very very rancorous about something i said a while ago or so.

But i concede that i have no right to discuss american matters because i'm just a mexican so i'll leave the discussion.

Wow guys. Is it possible to discuss these matters without it turning into a shit-flinging fest?

what website do you think you're on
I kinda wish they hadn't divulged who the shooter was. Who does that information honestly help? >.<

My thoughts are with the families.

I just have that speck of hope for change, I guess.

The info that he was put to justice is at least mildly reassuring. After all, the thought of such a person still being at large is horrifying, so I'm glad that isn't the case.

But on a similar subject:

What the fuck? I'm seriously wondering if this was a nationwide scheme of inflicting terror among LGBTs.

I'm a big proponent of people not engaging in Islamaphobia, but it would be an absolute disservice to Islam to pretend there isn't an active and a passive issue of radicalism present in many popular interpretations of the religion. To pretend otherwise would be a True Scotsman fallacy, at best.

Much love to those affected by this. It's pretty awful!
