Two weeks ago we all took a minute to find out which League of Their Own character we were, and it was a very intense and important process for us as a community. Now we have come upon the logical next step in this journey of League of Their Own discovery: learning who amongst the gay League of Their Own characters are our intended Gal Pal: Max Chapman, Jess McCready, Lupe Garcia, Carson Shaw, Jo Deluca or Greta Gil?

  1. Carson Shaw, yay!

    Also thank you for this sentence, absolutely true:

    “Two weeks ago we all took a minute to find out which League of Their Own character we were, and it was a very intense and important process for us as a community. ”

  2. Riese, thank you for this! I tried to take the other quiz “backwards” to find my soulmate (which suitcase if owned by someone else do I find most attractive, etc) and it didn’t work, just kept giving me the same answer as who I am (Carson).
    My soulmate is obviously Greta or Esther, and this quiz can see that!

  3. Back to share this quote I found while researching my “girlfriend” aka Jess aka Kelly McCormack, whi said in an interview “women, … are my muse, my religion, my love.”

    The dykiest thing ever said??

  4. Lupe!

    I do admit to have gone into this quiz determined to get her but we’re meant to be!

    Since ‘Vida’, Roberta Colindrez has been my one huge celebrity crush and I couldn’t believe it when she was cast in this show, and it was everything. If we get another season (Please God in heaven!) I want her to get a small love interest.

  5. LUPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I knew it! Thank you, AS, for confirming what I already knew in my deepest dyke soul and facilitating what will surely be the best match of my life! I mean, ahem, besides my current partner of 24 years, of course.
    Also, I just need to add that I would have been very happy with Jess or Max, but Max is a teensy bit too femme for me and Jess seems like she could be harder to talk with and reminds me of actual exes who could not open up…
    One more thing: it was close to impossible to choose a teen crush object because the real and accurate answer was ALL OF THE ABOVE!
    Jessie (popular), Alex (butch, out, and did not care what they said), Jennifer (amazing soccer player who gave zero fucks), Emily (winsome weird poet artist femme), that older girl in my marching band rifle line, and so many others…
    But in the end I picked the one that would be most likely to get me to Lupe, because Lupe.
