‘A League of They/Them/Their Own’ The Latest Remake We All Needed
HOLLYWOOD, CA—In an ever changing world, it’s more important now than ever that we see modern adaptations that question racial and gender norms of the past. Whether it’s a black Wonder Years or a female Ocean’s Eleven, we can all agree that updating the classics with more diverse casting is the best way to get marginalized people’s stories told. A League of They/Them/Their Own is sure to break barriers with its coming release.
The original film, A League of Their Own, is a fictionalized account of the real-life All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, which is a little dated and offensive now. With this facelift, audiences are sure to pile into the box office and erupt with applause when they realize not a single character has used she/her or he/him pronouns. This fictionalized account of a fictional All-American Non-Binary Professional Baseball League is much more up to speed with the desires of current theater goers and, frankly, brave as hell.
The trailer has received some controversial comments, ranging from the bigots who claim this story doesn’t need to be told, to the uppity non-binary folks pointing out that it’s just the original movie with new pronouns sloppily dubbed over the original dialogue. To that we say, it was a whole lot easier and cheaper than getting the original cast back together and convincing them to get septum piercings and dye their hair. Some have gone as far as saying it dilutes the struggles women faced to achieve equality, but let’s face it, women’s 15 minutes of fame are up. They’ve honestly had it too good for too long.
Hopefully this story can spark some real change in the sports world as well. Why is there a WNBA but no NBNBA? We’ve come a long way with all gender restrooms as a society, allowing men to take rancid Hardee’s fueled shits feet away from unsuspecting women. How long will it be until we step up and demand a sports league of people who reject the gender binary? Most would agree, it’s already been long enough.
