Response to Squinch (Reply #34)

43. I wish there could be a WNFL for women who want to watch other women play.

There might be quite a few men who would watch it too. Who knows? I'm talking in addition to the current NFL. Or maybe a coed, no holds barred football league. I'd even watch that readily and happily. I can just see myself swooning over the best female athletes who know how to kick ass on the field, kind of like roller derby, only coed and football instead.

I realize it might be like you said, most likely actually, but I would love to see female athletes playing football, real football, not that stupid wimpy flag football shit.

I wish there was a WMLB too. I used to want to be a baseball player when I was a little girl. The guys in the neighborhood let me play with them. When they went off and started playing Little League, I was denied even a chance (I was picked first for teams in the neighborhood pickup games usually). Instead, the park stuck me in girls' t-ball which was a crock of shit wimpy nonsense. They made us use softballs too. And fuck a damn T. Pitch to me, dammit. I had to switch gloves to a larger glove than my glove for baseball and I was left handed. The only glove we had laying around the house big enough for softball was for right handed people. I had to learn to throw right handed AND underhanded. I could rant and rave all day long about how much I hated that wimpy throwing underhanded crap too. I learned to "throw like a boy." Whatever the fuck that means. I learned to throw a baseball and loved baseball, not softball with a stupid T. Throwing underhanded was nonsense to me. Garbage. I already knew how to switch hit. That part was no problem, but nooooo, they would not allow me to do even that.

I was still good at the girls' T-ball, but it never had the fun of real baseball. I only played that nonsense one season. I finally swore off all sports because fuck it, if I'm not allowed to really compete like it was in the neighborhood with all the boys who didn't know I was a girl (except my one neighbor who never told them so I could play), why bother?

If I was the woman in charge in this neat little scenario, I'd ban wimpy crap like T-ball. Fuck a damn T.
