I'm ashamed to see that my former school has so many people on that list.

Good thing for you that nobody cares.

I couldn't sit on the sidelines any longer so I did what I have been trained to do, take action. I have started to teach wrestling to girls as part of our Physical Education program. Yesterday I had an all female class and we went over the basics and the potential is amazing. I was pleasantly surprised on how enthusiastic everyone was, asking good questions and working hard. A couple stayed after class and inquire about competing. I firmly belive there is a real future in girls wrestling and if more people would take time, we in the SD section could be the top section in the State for girls wrestling.

I think that is the problem. If the girls in San Diego Section show more success that the boys it would make them look bad. That is why you have so many coming on and bashing the girls.

They have the same right and opportunity as the boys. It is a fact the girls aren't as strong or fast as the boys, but that isn't who they want to play with. They want to play with the girls. Find away and make it happen - who knows what doors might be open.

Marine- Great job promoting women's wrestling. I am sure you will find a niche in that area of the sport with your enthusiasm!

USMC Teacher - kudos to you for stepping up to the challenge. I'm from God's country in CA, where folks think outside the box and support all people and persuasions. Like gay marriage, girls wrestling has taken off in my home of Annapolis, and I couldn't be happier. If you need an assistant coach, give me a call. Semper Girls Wrestling!

Matslave, I agree completely with you that the boys are on here bashing because they feel threatened. I saw the same kind of behavior when I was in the Corps and it was not tolerated there, and I plan to continue to help the girls get better and then they can stand proud regardless of what the boys say.

Ha ha, that's funny titanfan, I can't tell who's funnier you or powaywrestling. You spend all that time blathering on and on going and then revert to 'bite me' at the end? You really want people to bite you?

And I don't know why you're so upset. I mean, the whole time you've been on here you're arguing against girls wrestling, going point by point with gwrestler, and then you just lie at the end and say 'but really I'm all for girls wrestling.' Then why do you argue against it so hard?

That's like a person spending all day arguing against the conservative point of view and getting offended when you call him a liberal.

But bite me, that's classic.

It's good that some of the more modern people in our wrestling society have shown up to quiet down the lawyerly soup that some of the people on here were trying to make. Girls wrestling is a good idea.

Matslave, I knew you had it in you! I agree with you 100%. Thank you for sticking up for the ladies. Its going to take a whole bunch of coaches like you to convert the unconverted to the belief that girls should be able to wrestle.

It was to make sure no one ever comments on a controversial subject on a FORUM because it may be dredged up 4-5 years later! Notice that nothing very interesting gets posted after State?

I think it shows there are some peoples minds you can change and some you can't. Put your energy into growing the sport and its success will muffle the sounds of the ignorant.

As much as I hate what Title IX has done to the sport at the collegiate level (and being the dad of a tough girls wrestler), after reading some of the attitudes, I still see why - while it should be adjusted - it is still needed in some form.

Of note there were a number of girls at this weekends SDWA event. Its good to see that the girls are coming out even in the post season.

Good luck to those going to Fresno!
