A historic step toward a utopian future of all-male women’s basketball teams has been taken by Robert John “Gabrielle” Ludwig, a 50-year-old, 6′ 6″, 220-lb., chemosurgically disfigured man who plays varsity women’s basketball for Mission College in Santa Clara, California.
Naturally media social engineers are gushing maudlin affection all over this sick tale:
Ludwig gathered [his] 10 teammates at practice and offered to quit. This was their time to shine, [he] told the group of 18-, 19- and 20-year-olds. [He] didn’t want to be a distraction for the team. The other women said if Ludwig, whom they nicknamed “Big Sexy” and “Princess,” didn’t play, they wouldn’t either.
Didn’t [he] know [he] was the glue holding the team together?
“Then let’s just play basketball,” [he] replied solemnly, looking each teammate in the eye.
If they make Disney movies in hell, this would be a sure winner.
Soon Ludwig was on the court scoring points for the Lady Saints.
“I got exactly what I always wanted, just to fit in and be normal like everyone else,” Ludwig said.
Whether you want to laugh, scream, or throw up is up to you.
I take that back; don’t laugh, or the thought police will come down on you hard, as two ESPN commentators learned after making light of the situation.
[Ludwig] finds hope, if not gratification in the temporary suspensions ESPN radio hosts Steve Czaban and Andy Pollin received this week because of the remarks they made about [him].
Failing to applaud America’s fundamental transformation is not a wise career move.
