Wrestlin the Ladies…

The ARTICLE I’d like you read this week involves males, females, and the sport of wrestling. Now I must admit upfront that I have little, if any experience with the sport of wrestling (except for a couple of scuffles I got into when younger, the occassional UFC fight on TV, and watching the movie Four Christmas).  That said I feel I have to speak my mind on this one:

Why would a person practice all year for a State wrestling tournament, enter said tournament and then forfeit due to the different anatomical features of his opponent?  This kid had to know that there were females enrolling in the tournament so why did he enroll if he knew there was a chance he’d draw a female opponent? I’m confused…

Personally I think we’re all rational beings right? Let’s be candid, girls who enroll in State wrestling tournaments are fully aware that they may find themselves in “compromising positions” or being touched in places otherwise forbidden outside the ring, right? But this is wrestling folks! When you slap on the wrestling gear and sign the registration card, it’s all business from there on out!

The kid also says he forfeited his match due to religious beliefs that forbid “inflicting violence on women”. Hmmm…

So it’s ok to “inflice violence” on men? Again, I thought wrestling was a sport (and not merely violence).  My understanding (from Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau, and Tim McGraw) is that the there are dozens upon dozens of intricate moves and positions in the sport of wrestling – not just a bunch of “inflicting violence”.

My head hurts…someone help me out with this one, please.
