  1. Excellent! Great that men like this are becoming vocal and expressing such down-to-earth and commonsense views.

    It’s the “naked in the locker room” thing. It’s the potential fear tha str8 men have of being overpowered by an equal, rather than being the pinnacle of creation as assumed by the white/str8 male sense of entitlement.

    Sex happens in locker rooms. Odd that PREGNANCY does not… or near as often!
    Think about it….!

    1. A lot of them are also incurably vain and think that all gay men lust uncontrollably over a ‘real’ (that is, straight) man. This guy is obviously a sensible and serious sportsman without such silly and stereotyping notions.

  3. Why the hell should it matter …. full stop. The ONLY reason this is an issue at all is because religions make it one. They should just get over it and stop inciting hatred.

  4. Also worth noting is that Curt Schilling’s political leanings are quite conservative. He regularly campaigns for/endorses Republican candidates and – on various occasions – has threatened to run for elected office. He also bankrupted his video game production company after taking millions in public subsidies. While the guy is all over the place, I do like his comments on this topic as well as his part in winning us two World Series. KOA:TR wasn’t bad either. So he is really only 49.9% douchebag.

    Good man, such a shame that his former gay team mates don’t man up and come out.
