According to Lena Dunham, the shooting was about gender and race. What does that even mean?
So, Lena Dunham not only wants to politicize the Las Vegas shooting, but she openly advocates politicizing “this tragedy.” According to her tweet, the shooting is about race and gender. What can she mean? If ISIS terrorism isn’t about Islam how can any generalization be inferred from this event?
And then she gets Marxist about it:

“No way not to politicize this tragedy,” the showrunner and star of HBO’s Girls wrote in a tweet. “It’s about gender & race as well as access to guns. Considering it random is comforting & dangerous.”[…]
Earlier Monday, Dunham wrote that gun control “is the only answer to a question we shouldn’t even be asking.”
The Girls star was one of numerous celebrities to call for gun control following the mass shooting, which occurred around 10 p.m. Sunday night as country star Jason Aldean was performing on the third and final night of the festival.
