The theories of what motivated the Orlando massacre continue to shift.
In this latest story from the shooter's ex-wife, she says he had "gay tendencies" and she witnessed his father accuse him of being gay. One facet not covered in these reports is the practice of "bacha bazi" -- the raping of little boys by Afghan men -- is a common part of Afghan culture which Muslims don't seem to think makes you gay.
From the NY Post:
The ex-wife of Orlando mass killer Omar Mateen claimed Monday that she believed he was homosexual -- as it was revealed that he frequented the gay nightclub where he staged the nation's worst massacre in modern times.
Sitora Yusufiy, who was married to Mateen in 2009 for three months, made the shocking claim on Brazilian television station SBT Brazil.
Her fiancé, Marco Dias, speaking in Portuguese on her behalf, said Yusufiy believed that Mateen had "gay tendencies" and that his father had called him gay in front of her. Dias also claimed "the FBI asked her not to tell this to the American media."
