Former MLB Pitcher (Red Sox and Diamondbacks) and ESPN Analyst, Curt Schilling was fired because of a meme he shared and comments he posted on his Facebook Page about the transgender bathroom debate.
Here’s the actual post:
After catching heat from detractors, Schilling doubled down with the following post:
“ESPN is an inclusive company,” the network said in a statement, via The New York Times. “Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated.”
What’s the big deal?
So Curt Schilling doesn’t tip toe around how he feels, while the rest of the world does.
“Oooooh…he’s a bad guy”. “He’s got a big mouth”. “It’s about time he got fired”. That’s the chorus of condemnation coming from pretty much anyone behind a mic or in front of a camera. Bigot! Racist! Homophobe! Echoes the chorus from the politically correct public.
Isn’t that proving exactly what Schilling was saying? Aren’t people basically calling him a narrow minded, judgmental, unloving racist bigot because he doesn’t think a woman’s bathroom should be shared with someone who biologically isn’t a female?
Believe it or not…the majority of American’s share similar views. They just won’t say it out loud in public because they know the activist left will condemn them and they’ll be labeled the same way Curt Schilling has.
Here’s how most American’s really feel about the situation.
Americans, for the most part, are pretty understanding. We don’t really care if someone wants to identify as another gender. We have accepted that some people are one sex emotionally and another sex biologically. We’ll even go so far as to say most of those people are not predators and have no bad intentions when they use the restroom.
But deep down inside, most people actually agree that it’s uncomfortable to see a man dressed as a woman, going into the women’s bathroom.
Take the transgender issue out of it. If anyone saw a man walk into a woman’s bathroom the vast majority would think that was strange. Many might even alert someone as a precaution. Our entire lives it’s been women in one bathroom and men in another.
Now all of a sudden anyone can go in any bathroom anytime and we’re just supposed to act like there’s nothing out of the ordinary about that?
The scorn we receive if we dare even question the policy is overwhelming. No doubt it’s bullying in the simplest of terms. How dare you not think of the transgendered person’s comfort and feelings if you don’t blindly agree with the policy?
What about the comfort and feelings of the 95% who will be uncomfortable sharing the restroom with someone who is, biologically, the opposite sex?
Of course it’s uncomfortable. Of course it’s out of the ordinary. Of course it could lead to problems. Of course it’s a slippery slope and this will not be the final controversy about the issue.
The LGBTQ activists ask for tolerance. I think most of America has given that to them. Can we get the same respect in return?
The Dictionary defines tolerance as:
Willingness to accept feelings, habits, or beliefs that are different than your own.
Why is it those who demand tolerance of their views, are intolerant of anyone who has an opinion different than their own?
Why is it those who profess love for all, hate anyone who doesn’t agree?
