Allison J. van Tilborgh, I was shocked and horrified when I saw this homophobic pig’s article pop up in my Medium feed. I was beyond horrified to see you had published it, amplifying his cruel, obnoxious voice.

I’ve run across him before. He commented on an article of mine, lecturing me that my LGBTQ-affirming Muslim friends cannot be true Muslims. His message is revolting, stigmatizing, bigoted, and wrong.

MANY Muslims are LGBTQ affirming, no matter what this bigoted pig wishes.

You need to remove this disgusting bigot from your publication and determine to never again publish anything as evil and vile as this homophobic swill.
