Find out what Curt Schilling did that got him in the unemployment line on the flip…
It appears that Curt Schilling offended the Trans community when he posted his thoughts on his Facebook stating:
“A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don’t care what they are, who they sleep with, men’s room was designed for the penis, women’s not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic.”
We agree with Schilling in part, for the simple reason that a man is a man unless he has completely transgendered to a woman. If she or he still has their parts giving to them from birth. They NEED to use the restroom designated.
But we will also weigh saying this?
Who really cares. There are so many times women use men’s bathrooms during sporting events because the line is too long in the women’s bathroom and no one complains. But if a man uses a women’s bathroom, women get upset. Check the double standard. In Gay clubs the bathrooms are for whoever. The only place a bathroom is designated for gender specification is in straight bars and restaurants.
Just make the bathrooms unisex and this argument is over! The Trans community needs to realize this is their choice to change their sex. It doesn’t mean we all have to change our rules for the LGBTQ community. And let’s be more REAL about this, “How many Transgender people are really patronizing straight bars unless they’re trying to prove a point?
If you can say millions of transgender are in straight bars using the bathroom, then we will eat our words but people are being too hypersensitive over the issue of transgender again!
As for Schilling, ESPN said in a statement:
“ESPN is an inclusive company.”
“Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated.”
Schilling, who had worked for the network since 2010 and most recently offered analysis on “Monday Night Baseball,” was dismissed after sharing a Facebook post this week that appeared to respond to the North Carolina law that bars transgender people from using bathrooms and locker rooms that do not correspond with their birth genders.
For the record, Schilling was responding to the ridiculous photo of a overweight man wearing a wig and women’s clothing with parts of the T-shirt cut out to expose his breasts.
“LET HIM IN! to the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow-minded, judgmental, unloving racist bigot who needs to die.”
Earlier Wednesday, Schilling appeared on a show on WEEI radio in Boston and defended himself against accusations of intolerance and racism. He told the hosts on WEEI, sounding weary and bewildered by his latest social media furor:
“To be in a place where people actually believe I’m a racist or I’m transphobic says to me that something has gone horribly askew somewhere.”
Lastly, the man in the photo is NOT Transgender! The Trans community should be upset that this man is trying to pass as Transgender! The photo is an embarrassment to the LGBTQ community and yes we have the right to say it, because we are part of the community!
