Lesbians Playing Softball (Ideas and Concepts)

"We didn't do that!"
"I agree. It's impossible. Where would militant feminists get ahold of a softball bat?"

Feminism is often equated with lesbianism, and softball has been declared the (un)official sport of lesbians. Nevermind the out-of-the-closet announcements of world-ranked female tennis players and women's professional basketball players: if she's a lesbian, she probably knows how to hit and catch a softball. Or so says the National Council on Sexuality and Weekend Hobbies and the [I]Lampoon[/I] journalists who assume that the feminists at Hearst college are all lesbians and that they used a baseball bat to vandalize the dean's car. The Council is fictitious, but the obnoxious guys who run the newspaper are not.
