In the wake of several anti-gay proclamations last week by professional athletes, most notably San Francisco 49er Chris Culliver, former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling has taken to twitter to air his thoughts.
Last week Schilling sent out two rapid fire tweets. From @gehrig38 (Schilling's twitter name):
Also, I've never understood this 'issue' with gay players? Who cares? I know I played with some, their sexual orientation never had much to
That tweet was quickly followed by:
To do with how they hit with RISP, or pitched in late and close situations, why the hell would what they do in the bedroom ever matter?
Last week Culliver, in a pre-Super Bowl interview stated "I don't do the gay guys man, I don't do that. No, we don't got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do." In response to a question regarding the possibility of gay players on the 49ers.
Culliver later apologized for his statements and will begin sensitivity training before starting volunteer work The Trevor Project.
“He’s so passionate about youth and people being comfortable with who they are and accepted by all,” Culliver's spokesman told NESN. “He’s excited to learn. The plan is with The Trevor Project, and their concerns are that he is genuine about his words.”
