I know what you're thinking, but no that it not Sarah Palin pictured above.This is ESPN's Curt Schilling's disgusting view of transgender people #HB2 https://t.co/7DKRXDL4GL pic.twitter.com/hLNhtRf9xe— Outsports (@outsports) April 19, 2016
It is however a rather disgusting and homophobic tweet sent out by Curt Schilling which resulted in his dismissal from ESPN.
This apparently distracted Palin from her ongoing argument for the destruction of the arctic polar bears, and she posted this on Facebook in response:
ESPN continues to screw up.
This of course feeds into the completely fabricated Right Wing fantasy that transgendered people wish to use the bathrooms only to leer at their women and molest their children.
A fantasy that apparently Dakota Meyer also shares.
dakotameyer0317 People who are arguing for men to gain access to women's restrooms to me are absolutely failing to see the issue on many levels. I have a daughter and as a father it is my duty to ensure her safety and proper environment in which to grow up in. I will be damned if I am going to let a man, cross dresser or otherwise, go into a bathroom with her in it. Going into that bathroom the last issue he has to worry about is how comfortable it makes him feel. And had any taken into consideration the president this sets? Next is these same guys in the locker rooms with your daughter, your wife, or even you. Sorry but this doesn't fly with me.
First off I am fairly certain that Meyer meant to write "precedent" and not "president," but what can one expect from a man who allowed his penis to get close to a Palin?
Secondly this argument feeds off of certain people's innate homophobia, and in fact it is no more likely that a transgender or transsexual man would molest a young girl in a bathroom stall than a regular bible thumping "straight" dude would molest a young boy in one.
Actually to be honest the second scenario is FAR more likely and there is ample data to back that up.
This is just another example of how easily intellectually stunted people are manipulated into hating and fearing people that they really have no reason to hate or fear.
