A League of Their Own

i always think about what kind of professor i would be. if i taught women's studies, this would be a required film. it teaches the concepts and it's comical.
careers and higher education are leading to the masculinization of women, with enormously dangerous consequences to the home, the children, and our country. When our boys come home from war, what kind of girls will they be coming home to? And now the most disgusting example of this sexual confusion: Mr. Walter Harvey of Harvey bars is presenting us with women's baseball. Right here in Chicago, young girls plucked from their families are gathered at Harvey Field, to see which one of them can be the most masculine. Mr. Harvey, like your candy bars, you're completely... nuts.

i watched this when i was younger with my older brother. the first time watching it, i remember thinking why would he be interested in this movie? i can;t remember why i liked it so much at the time because i didnt get nearly half the jokes. all i know is i so wanted to be a Rockford Peach (but i would later learn just how impractical those uniforms were when i played softball in high school).
