IT'S BEEN A long time coming, but the loutish male of the species finally is getting his comeuppance on the big screen. Suddenly, Hollywood is catering to the not-so-private fantasies of America's neglected and abused wives. And judging from the response to "Sleeping With the Enemy" and "Mortal Thoughts," a sizable audience is eager to applaud the systematic humiliation -- even murder -- of the opposite sex.But the strongest bit of feminist wish-fulfillment is yet to come. It is "Thelma & Louise," which opens May 24. In a clever fusing of "Easy Rider" and "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," director Ridley Scott ("Alien")

THERE'S A SCENE IN THE NEW MOVIE "Thelma & Louise" where Thelma, played by Geena Davis, holds a cocked gun to the head of a state trooper and says: "You be sweet to your wife. My husband wasn't sweet to me and look how I turned out."So, you're probably wondering, how exactly did Thelma, a ditzy, childless, Arkansas housewife who has the bad luck to be married to a loutish bully, turn out?Well, for starters, by the time she holds that gun to the state trooper's head, she's an accomplice to murder, the perpetrator of an armed robbery and the victim of a brutal rape attempt by a cowboy she's picked up in a bar.As for her buddy, Louise -- played by Susan Sarandon -- well, she's a fortysomething, world-weary waitress who's tired of waiting for her musician boyfriend to make a commitment.

Trainer Marilyn Goldman roars with laughter when someone describes her and her jockey, Mary Wiley, as the "Thelma and Louise" of Maryland horse racing.Goldman, after all, admits she was so nervous she broke out with a fever blister just thinking about working her filly, Miss Claratius, perhaps the best of her generation among Maryland-breds, on a muddy track Sunday at the Bowie Training Center.But there's no question that this hard-hitting team of women professionals has displayed as much true grit as the horse Goldman trains and Wiley will ride on Sunday in Laurel's %J $100,000 Selima Stakes.

Geena Davis has always had self-confidence. She'll be the first to say so.Moviegoers got their first glance of her in the hit comedy "Tootsie." She portrayed a bit player in the film's "General Hospital"-type soap opera, and when her character shared a dressing room with Dustin Hoffman's, he almost forgot he was supposed to be a woman.That was 10 years ago. Since then, she has won an Academy Award (for "The Accidental Tourist"), starred in a landmark film (last year's "Thelma & Louise"), is the major player in a hot summer movie ("A League of Their Own," opening tomorrow)
