Breitbart News used an anti-trans slur in an article about former ESPN analyst Curt Schilling and his controversial social media post.
Breitbart News contributor and anti-gay hate group leader Austin Ruse used the word “tranny” in an April 20 article about Schilling’s controversial social media post. This isn’t the first time Breitbart News or Ruse has used the slur when covering the transgender community. Ruse also highlighted Schilling’s follow-up blog post and the ensuing backlash:
On a later comment, Schilling said, “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.”
Predictably, the Big Tranny Hate Machine quickly pounced. Jay Brown of the anti-Christian Human Rights Campaign said Schilling’s “public and derogatory attack on transgender people was extremely troubling.” He said comments like Schillings constitute “ugly propaganda” and would be dangerous for men in dresses. Brown also insisted that transsexuals are baseball fans.
