Why isnt there a female wrestling team? If there are young women that want to wrestle then the schools should take steps to start it.
I think this is thoroughly unfair for the young men on the wrestling teams. There are some things that are just for boys/men and some things that are just for girls/women. Whether we want to accept it, or not, we are different in so many, many aspects. Does that make one better than the other? No. Just naturally different. Having young women in a competitive sport that demands such physically violent contact is nothing more then a stumbling-block for these young men. Ladies, start your own teams.

Females are just as good as boys. I did wrestling this year and got a lot out of it. who cares if your a girl or boy. Your still putting up the same fight. I was just has good as the boys even if they beat me, I still put a hell of a good fight up every time i hit the mat. Just like the guys do. IF your a boy and get beat by a girl o well its just like been beat by a guy. Just come back next time and beat her. We don't ask you to take it easy on us or we wouldn't have gone out for the sport. We like the fight so bring it. There is girls teams but its not as hard as wrestling a guy.I think boys and girls can do the same things if they want to=]
