ESPN baseball analyst Curt Schilling may be in hot water once again after sharing another of his political opinions. Schilling’s latest episode involved an anti-transgender meme, which he posted to his Facebook page Monday.
The post has since been removed from Schilling’s Facebook page but the original screenshot still exists. You can view it here. The meme deals with the controversial public restroom laws, which have been on ballots in state across the country throughout the past year.
Schilling not only shared the post, but also posted a comment on the picture to make his stance on this issue crystal clear. Here’s the comment, word-for-word, as posted by Schilling:
“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 are taking this matter very seriously and are in the process of reviewing it,” an ESPN spokesman told Big League Stew. Schilling also issued a statement. The 49-year-old posted a blog on his personal website titled “The hunt to be offended…” In the post, Schilling blames the media and others for making a bigger deal out of his comments.
See here’s the thing. I do NOT care what color you are, what race, what sex, who you sleep with, what you wear. I don’t care and I never have. I have opinions, but they’re just that, opinions. And opinions are like buttholes, everyone has one and they usually stink.
You know how I know you ‘offended’ people are full of crap? Because I’m not even close to any of the things you so desperately want me to be, so you can whine.
You frauds out there ranting and screaming about my ‘opinions’ (even if it isn’t) and comments are screaming for “tolerance” and “acceptance” while you refuse to do and be either.
YOU’RE the ones making it the issue. I don’t care, if you ask me about any of the topics it’s likely (much to the chagrin of many) I’ll answer with my opinion.
