It is no surprise to me that ESPN fired Curt Shilling over his Facebook post criticizing “transgendered” people. While the photo Shilling used was a bit risque, his comments were in line with natural law and common sense. Despite those academics and leftists who believe in the “social construction of reality” and that “sex is biological, but gender is socially constructed,” reality continues to rise above the grave the Left has tried to dig for it.
Leftists claim that since there are some people born as hermaphrodites, and the doctor “chooses” their gender for them, this means that gender distinctions are wholly social in nature. However, this is not the case–it is inaccurate to look for standards of normality in the aberrant. No one does this in ordinary life. If a child is born with a heart defect, no one says, “This is normal, so we should accept the child as is and do nothing for her.” Instead, surgeons correct the problem. If a schizophrenic cannot function due to paranoid delusions, we do not say, “That’s just normal for him; we can let him be as is and protect his schizophrenic status.” Instead, we give him medication to regulate his serotonin levels. If someone says, “I was born as a man but feel like a woman,” then the best thing for that person is treatment of his delusion rather than celebrating his alleged “self-chosen gender.”
Gender is sex. That is a biological fact, and no amount of slick language by social constructionists can change that face. Transgendered people are pretending they are something they are not. They are men play-acting at being women and vice-versa. Their behavior is a perversion of human nature. The contemporary “acceptance” of such perversion as “normal” is insane and a denial of reality.
Mr. Shilling’s comments, while stated in rather colloquial language, were on the spot. They are true. ESPN cannot hide that truth by firing Mr. Shilling. ESPN and other multinational corporations have become supporters of perversion. They oppose North Carolina keeping the common-sense distinction between men’s and women’s restrooms. They bully states who pass such laws or who try to pass such laws, attempting to force them into submission–or they make policies forcing their radical social agenda on the public. An example is Target’s recent decision to allow “transgendered” men and women to use restrooms of the opposite sex.
As James Kalb has noted, Corporations desire human beings to be machines who can be molded at will into tools for the corporations to make money. They promote a libertine attitude toward perversion because people who “exclude” get in the way of a “harmonious workforce,” that is, a group of interchangeable parts.
States must resist such corporate pressure. North Carolina is doing the right thing in holding firm to the law requiring separate restrooms for the sexes. It is time for states where most people still hold to some kind of natural law view of human beings to resist the corporations. Support small business and much as possible. Stop giving mega corporations tax breaks. If companies bully over “the transgendered,” ban those companies from doing business in the state. We are submissive to corporate support of evil because we have willingly submitted ourselves as de facto slaves to powerful multinational corporations. It is time for people who have not been brainwashed by academia, the media, and Hollywood to stand against corporations who desire to force the anti-natural down people’s throats.
ESPN, like most media, is controlled by Leftists who are reshaping the United States into a twisted wasteland of moral relativism and sexual perversion. Mr. Shilling should be proud of standing for the truth, even though he lost his job. If enough people stand for the truth, perhaps corporate profits can be cut, and that is the one factor that matters to corporate executives. This was shown when Cracker Barrel reversed its decision to avoid carrying “Duck Dynasty” products after Phil Robertson’s statements against homosexual activity. Many of its customers were Christians, and they stood up in mass against the new policy–and their voices mattered. More Christians and other people of all backgrounds who oppose sanctioning perversion should stand up to corporate moguls and say, “No more!”
