    This is ESPN's Curt Schilling's disgusting view of transgender people

    Curt Schilling, one of ESPN's baseball commentators, yesterday posted an absolutely disgusting photo and caption on Facebook in regards to access to public facilities for transgender people.

    While trying to link trans people to this image is grotesque, I include it on this post as a demonstration of just how horrific Schilling's public display is on this issue:

    Maybe making the matter even worse, one of ESPN's MLB editors is a trans woman: Christina Kahrl. How does the company tell Kahrl anything but, "We reject this message and this man"?

    If I remember correctly, didn't he barely escape with him job the end of last baseball season for some comment or post he made?

    .. or maybe it was another one of their dipshit MLB guys.

    He's 100% right. Sorry if science goes against liberal idealism.

    Curt is moron. He blew his entire baseball fortune on his video game company which failed. He is being paid somewhere between $500k-$1 million working for ESPN. It could be more than a million, I really don't know. What is known is he lost almost all his net worth of $50 million on his company. He has already been suspended before from ESPN over his social media posts or retweets. He doesn't have a job waiting for him at MLB network which is even more conservative than ESPN. For one, I don't know how you live with yourself after toasting off all the money you earned as an MLB player. He didn't have to venture in to video games. He had enough to live off very comfortably for the rest of his life. If he loses his ESPN job he will be relegated to doing autograph shows or getting a low paying radio gig. The problem with Curt is he wants to be a political commentator or have a forum like Rush or Glenn Beck. He's a very intelligent guy but he doesn't realize his only job is commentate on the sport of baseball. That's what he is being paid for. He is holding on to his job by a razor thin wire. I won't be surprised is if he is finally canned in the next 2 weeks. MLB is multi-billion dollar business. You can't offend anyone. I went to a Phillies game on Sunday and you can't believe the amount of lesbians who attend the games. These are not lipstick lesbians. They all basically look like Rachel Maddow or K.D. Lang. When you represent MLB on TV and offend the transgender community these people get pissed off. Curt is from the far religious right. It's going to end badly for him.

    i duno what he said, or if hes right.
    but he's paid to represent a brand ina way that the company who pays him deems fit. they clearly dont deem it fit, and he knows that.
    when a "liberal" musician gives their political opinion the "conservatives" say shut up and stick to music, so why dont the same ppl tell curt to stick to baseball?

    (i personally love his baseball analysis and dont care what else he says, but im not paying him)


    if it was right that coca cola taste better than pepsi, one can say that .... unless u are being paid by pepsi

    I think Curt is like a sober Artie. He keeps trying to get fired until he actually succeeds.

    I see both sides but he works for a far left organization. Caitlyn Jenner was hailed as a hero last year just for being a transgender.

    ESPN is really going to take a hit in the chicks-with-dicks demographic.

    I'm torn between thinking he sucks as an analyst and hating PC faggotry.
