Why are there no female umpires?


Yeah, so, I want to know why there are no female umpires in Major League Baseball. I typed my question into Google, but before I could finish my question Google tried to guess my question based on popular searches.

All of those questions are stupid, except for one. Seriously. Why are there no female Transformers?

As for my female umpire question, apparently the glass ceiling is so tight at Major League Baseball that women have stopped even trying to become umpires for Major League Baseball. True story.

Maybe I should quit my job and go to umpire school. I bet it’s like Hogwarts.

I'm a writer/mocker/goober/mother in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, podcast, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. Female transformers would be too moody and bitchy. They could not be relied upon to prevent Armageddon, or whatever the hell transformers do.

  2. There’s an interesting book about a gay umpire who had a really freaking hard time. “Behind the Mask” or something was the title. And I’m thinking: if an out, gay guy has that bad of a time in the old boys’ network, it makes sense that a woman wouldn’t even want to go there.

  3. There are female transformers, quite a few of them. Arcee, for example…
