There’s a fascinating story about a boy in iowa who qualified for the state wrestling meet - which incidentally is a huge event - being born and raised in iowa - I know … but his 1st match was against a girl - so he forfeited
Now I’m a big believer in equal opportunity and encouraging young girls to chase their dreams and smash all those glass ceilings they bump their head against - but NOT WRESTLING !!!!!
I think it’s ridiculous that a young girl would wrestle boys - and equally ridiculous that young boys would wrestle girls - it’s a lose lose situation for the boy - if he wins - it was against a girl - if he loses - he can’t go home again
He forfeits because his religion doesn’t allow him to touch girls in such a way - but he’ll change - if he doesn’t the religion dies out … but I just think we’ve gone too far in this case of allowing girls on the wrestling team
Maybe we should let boys try out for the volleyball team … there wouldn’t be 2 girls in iowa who could make that team ---
Equal opportunity in the workplace - of course equal opportunity on a wrestling mat --
As the great Jimmy Johnson used to say … PLEASE !!!
