    Default Wrestling a Girl

    Any thoughts on this blog article?

    The blogger definitely tried to wend his way through to a multi-layered conclusion.

    http://www.thepostgame.com/blog/dail...rely-first-one

    ...This came to mind when I read the Prep Rally post about Mina Johnson, the Virginia eighth-grade football player who sat out a game against a North Carolina team last week because her team's opponent had reservations about playing against a girl.

    Similarly, when Cedar Falls High School female wrestler Cassy Herkelman was given a forfeit during the Iowa state tournament last February, it became national news.

    The forfeit was given when her opponent, Linn-Mar High's Joel Northup, conceded.

    The national wrestling community's reaction was a resounding "WHAT!?" The Iowa state high school tournament is one of the most competitive in the country. Kids train tirelessely and shed pounds dangerously for it. In Iowa, arguably the state with the greatest wrestling tradition, this is huge.

    "As a matter of conscience and my faith I do not believe that it is appropriate for a boy to engage a girl in this manner," was Northup’s explanation....

    Wow, I wasn't even aware that girls were playing on male football teams and wrestling against guys in tournaments. Huh, interesting.

    It does bug me that guys think they have to win against me in anything physical, though. I remember I had a long bike ride along a bike path to one of my internship jobs in uni. I looooove riding fast, so that's what I did. And I remember whenever I passed guys on the path, they would speed up and try to pass me. But since I was pretty fast, I would take pleasure in deliberately speeding up to pass them again if they passed me, or to not allow them to pass me if I noticed they were trying, and to continue riding quickly. I remember once I noticed someone tried to race me all the way to where I worked. When we both got there (me first) he said "Good one, you outmaneuvered me back there."

    At the same time, I can understand why they feel that pressure, but tbh, it still annoys me sometimes.

    I think the thing that annoys me most is when that attitude continues in areas where physicality is irrelevant, like the workplace. (But I suppose that would be a topic for another thread.)

    i've always felt wrestling was kinda homoerotic so i can see a problem with it more than other sports just because you're in such close contact with eachother. you're all rolling around and straddling eachother and shit. the boy was probably scared of getting a boner.

    I used to love play fighting with guys and did so with a few of the guys in the residence I lived in at uni, but there were only a few who were willing to do it for obvious reasons. Of course they would win in the end (especially if they discovered how ticklish I was), but I put up a good fight until then cuz I'm stronger than I look and have much quicker reflexes than most people, and it was good for a laugh and an adrenaline rush.

    I've trained jujutsu style wrestling with women. It's not sexy at all. I mean, it's just all hot and sweaty and stuff.

    I was initially hesitant, but decided it's really cheating them in a MA setting to hold back. I've been beat once. This girl summoned the strength of 10 bears and got me flipped over on my back, while ripping off the double-stitched denim tie on my uniform. I found out afterward that the physicality made her freak out because of some stuff she ran into in the past.

    I once tapped a six foot three male opponent out, by choking his rib cage with the strength of my thighs alone.

    I figure if she was good enough to make weight and get that wrestling slot, that's the last thing he'll have time to worry about. (Or do guys get boners when they're getting their ass kicked by a girl? Does it have time to work that way?)

    i don't know, i've been living under the assumption that teenage boys are walking around with boners like 90% of the time. i haven't scientifically proven this though... yet. boners are an interest of mine.
