Unless you’ve been under a rock, you know that Target now welcomes men into their ladies’ rooms and ESPN fired Curt Schilling for saying that “men are men.” Yes. That’s the kind of world we live in now. [Read more…]
I truly don’t even believe this Target bathroom situation is even about the transgender population at this point. This is about right from wrong.

Can you imagine how p*ssed their boss must have been watching them come into work with growing baby bumps? Not good for their advertisement of abortion. [Read more…]
You may have seen that ESPN commentator Curt Schilling was either fired or suspended for commenting about the above meme:
“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.”
In other words, he got in trouble for stating an obvious fact.
Men are men.
This reminds me of how Phil Robertson was treated on Duck Dynasty for merely expressing his beliefs. Shame on both companies for punishing their good employees for speaking their mind.
This whole “politically correct” mentality is so clearly hypocritical it makes my head spin. These are the same people chanting “love, peace, tolerance, equality for all” but when you don’t agree precisely with their views, the world comes crashing down on you with the furies of hell.
How can someone get fired, or suspended, or reprimanded at all – for simply stating that a man is a man?! We don’t live in some la la unicorn utopia. Enough with this walking on eggshells bs about touchy subjects.
There are great people from all walks of life. No one is saying transgender people are bad people. I think people with common sense are saying that no matter what, people will abuse the system (like many Americans nowadays). Some men who are clearly men will take advantage of the situation and invite themselves into the women’s bathroom.
How is that “equality for all” when it will make many of us uncomfortable? Is it that big of a deal to label a separate bathroom for “unidentified” or transgender?
It’s just nuts to me.
Good for this ESPN guy, former pro ball player Curt Schilling, for posting something so black and white. I hope he stands his ground like the rest of us need to.
Also, Schilling wrote this on his blog to make things clear: “This latest brew ha ha is beyond hilarious. I didn’t post that ugly looking picture. I made a comment about the basic functionality of mens and womens restrooms, period.”
He went on to write:
See here’s the thing. I do NOT care what color you are, what race, what sex, who you sleep with, what you wear. I don’t care and I never have. I have opinions, but they’re just that, opinions. And opinions are like buttholes, everyone has one and they usually stink.
You know how I know you ‘offended’ people are full of crap? Because I’m not even close to any of the things you so desperately want me to be, so you can whine.
I’m loud, I talk too much, I think I know more than I do, those and a billion other issues I know I have. Like everyone one of you I have flaws, but I’m ok with my flaws, they’re what make me, me. I thank the Lord for the life I’ve been given. A life interspersed and occupied by men and women who are gay, by people of all races and religions, by men and women who dress as the other, by men and women who’ve changed to women and men. Not one decision I’ve ever made about a person has anything to do with those things I just mentioned, nor will it ever.
You frauds out there ranting and screaming about my ‘opinions’ (even if it isn’t) and comments are screaming for “tolerance” and “acceptance” while you refuse to do and be either.
YOU’RE the ones making it the issue. I don’t care, if you ask me about any of the topics it’s likely (much to the chagrin of many) I’ll answer with my opinion.
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, 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.
But let me reiterate, I don’t care who, what, where or why you are who you are. I care about people and how they treat others. You will NEVER in your lives find a single person who’s met me/knows me who would ever say I treated them as anything other than a human. None.

The Blaze has this fascinating story:
Andrea Ott-Dahl of San Fransisco agreed to be the surrogate mother for two of her friends, a lesbian couple, who were having trouble getting pregnant through artificial insemination. But just two months into the pregnancy, in Jaunary 2013, doctors informed Ott-Dahl and her wife, Keston Ott-Dahl, as well as the couple seeking to have a child, that the baby girl, whom they had already given the name Delaney, was going to have Down syndrome.
“When the doctor came in, the four of us, I would say we were in shock,” Keston, 50, told ABC News. “We were devastated. Andrea was catatonic. The doctors made it seem like Delaney was going to be blind [and] have autism. They said the fluid build-up on the back of her neck, it would either kill her or there would be a severe deformity that would look like another head. They told us she had a 5 percent chance of surviving up until birth.”
Andrea, 34, told ABC that she had agreed to donate her own eggs for the pregnancy, making her Delaney’s biological mother.
“Our hearts went out to these women because we knew the joys of having a family,” Andrea said, who has five children. “Finally, we got pregnant and everyone was happy, but at the 12-week ultrasound, the doctor noticed the buildup of fluid behind the baby’s neck. He told us this would be Down syndrome, or worse.”
Keston told ABC that after hearing the diagnosis, Delaney’s intended mothers told Andrea they didn’t want to move forward with the pregnancy.
“They successfully scared those two intended moms into wanting to terminate,” Keston said.
But the Ott-Dahls, who had already bonded with the unborn child, decided that abortion was not an option. On Jan. 20, 2013, they informed Delaney’s intended mothers that they were going to keep the child and raise her as their own.
I love love this story and praise this family for choosing LIFE!! Even in a difficult circumstance, they choose life!
