In today’s America, the left actively promotes the punishment of those who dare to defy the ever-changing and ever-more-preposterous social narratives that emerge.
One of these preposterous narratives is that mentally ill men in dresses should be validated as women (and vice-versa). Those who meekly stand-up to social bullies and assert that it is perversion to invite men to shower with women or to use the same bathroom as women are shouted-down as intolerant bigots.
This is what happened to ESPN host Curt Schilling. Schilling, a former pitcher, is a sports analyst for ESPN or, rather, he was. Schilling was fired on Wednesday amidst uproar when he shared a Facebook post that questioned the logic of allowing a mentally-ill man in drag to use the same restroom as one’s daughter.
The shared post (pictured below) featured a man in drag and said, “Let him in to the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow minded, judgmental, unloving, racist bigot who needs to die!!!”
Schilling explained in the post, “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.”
After critic accused him of being “transphobic,” Schilling offered a lengthy defense of his commonsense on his blog.
Because he is willing to stand strong in a sea of crazy, Schilling was unceremoniously fired from his position at ESPN.
“ESPN is an inclusive company,” ESPN said in a statement. “Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated.”
Evidently, ESPN is “an inclusive company”– that “inclusiveness” just doesn’t extend to anyone with a differing viewpoint on whether or not society should accept men in restrooms with women. Apparently, that is what passes for “tolerance” these days…
How is it that we have come to this despicable place of intolerance as a society? If a man wishes to wear a dress, that’s his choice. However, the rest of us should not be obliged to validate his delusion and play make-believe with him.
Further, aside from the obvious annoyance of being forced to play pretend with a grown man in a skirt, the problem of legitimizing the delusions of the mentally ill is that we condemn others to endure perversion. Should a woman feel compelled to shower at the gym with a man out of a warped sense of social justice?
That Schilling endured anything other than praise for his honesty is shocking and indicative of a culture in decline.
