Four Ways SJWs Would Tear 'Major League' Apart Today
The boys of summer are back where they belong.
Spring Training began this week, a time when even the lowliest of teams can dream of playing meaningful baseball in September.
Except maybe the Cincinnati Reds.
It's the perfect time to revisit "Major League," the 1989 comedy starring Tom Berenger, Corbin Bernsen, and Charlie Sheen as Ricky "Wild Thing" Vaughn. The bawdy comedy not only nailed the game's essentials but gave us plenty of memorable quotes.
Like, "Juuuuust a bit outside," from legendary announcer Bob Uecker.
The movie spawned two inferior sequels, but the original's luster has yet to fade. Who doesn't love a big league comedy with attitude? Maybe those Social Justice Warriors. The SJW crowd would try to crush it if it came out today. Why? It's politically incorrect in more than a few ways.
1. The Villain Is ... Gasp ... a Woman
Mrs. Phelps (Margaret Whitton) wants to move the Indians franchise to Miami. That's blasphemous to any true sports fans, let alone those in blue-collar Cleveland. In this testosterone-laced comedy, making a woman the villain might inspire some unholy SJW tweets.
The cast is loaded with male stars, too, failing the Bechdel Test regarding the male/female cast ratio.
Plus, as an incentive to the team, whenever they win a game they peel a piece of clothing off Mrs. Phelps' life-sized cardboard cutout. That's sexist to the core, right?
