“bottom of the ninth, down 3, 2 outs, 2 strikes”
Was going to quote Lurleen Lumpkin’s classic “Bagged Me a Homer” but I’ve just realised the lyric is “The bases were empty on the diamond of my heart”, not “The bases were loaded”.

Is this some cultural reference of which I’m unaware?
I think it’s referring to the phenomenon in films where, if any female displays an ability more stereotypically associated with males, it’s because she was the only female in a family full of them.

Ah OK. This bit confused me.
It’s a reference to a sexist movie trope
I think it’s also just meant to be absurdist humour TBH
Either way, not really a Great Thing Posted on Social Media.
