ESPN Fires Curt Schilling for Personal Views on Transgenderism


ESPN has fired baseball analyst and former World Series Championship Pitcher Curt Schilling after he posted an image to his personal Facebook page that the company deemed as insensitive towards transgendered people.

ESPN Baseball Analyst Curt Schilling was fired after sharing this image on his personal Facebook account.

The image, at right, was shared by Schilling in response to the sweeping wave of states attempting to open locker rooms, bathrooms, and showers to individuals based on their internal gender identity or gender expression rather than their biological sex.

“There are things I have deeply held beliefs in, things I have that are core to who I am, things I am passionate about. If you ask me about them it’s likely I’ll give you a passionate answer,” Schilling wrote in a statement following his firing.

“Whether you like that answer or not is completely up to you. I am not going to give you answers to make sure you like what I say, let the rest of the insecure world do that.”

Schilling, who is known to be outspoken, is the second high-profile case of view-based employment discrimination to take place this month.  Last week, Georgia Department of Health Employee Eric Walsh was fired after the agency uncovered sermons of Walsh preaching messages against homosexuality at his church.

In Washington, the effort to maintain safety and privacy in locker rooms, bathrooms, and showers, is under way.  The Just Want Privacy Campaign has been launched to protect privacy and safety in Washington State.  Click here to join the campaign!
