Brown Planning to Cut Wrestling

All of a sudden, my Inbox on my computer has been filled with appeals from students at Brown University in Rhode Island. They start off with such statements as: "I am a freshman on the wrestling team at Brown University. I just found out that wrestling may be cut. If there anything you can do to lend assistance, it would be greatly appreciated." Another email says, "Please help save the college wrestling program at Brown University. It is targeted for elimination because of gender equality, a common goal of the feminist program for years. I am pleading with you to intercede on behalf of the 28 members of the wrestling team. Most of the Brown wrestling team members are state medal winners. We have wrestled in the program since we were five years old, and we continue to strive for excellence. At Brown, we are just what a true student athlete ought to be. My dream is being torn apart. Please help!"

The cancellation of the college wrestling teams is a good example of the anti-male and anti-masculine ideology of the feminists. This shows that the implementation of Title 9 doesn't have anything to do with the costs of athletic programs, since wrestling costs less than any other sport; all you need is a mat. The feminists want to cancel wrestling because it is so masculine. The feminists in the Department of Education has already forced the cancellation of 450 college wrestling teams.

In Iowa, the feminists forced high schools to accept girls in the wrestling competitions. A high school wrestler named Joel Northrup had achieved a 35-to-4 record during the season and was on track to win the state championship. Then he found himself matched with a girl. Joel gave up his chance at the wrestling championship, saying, "Wrestling ... can get violent at times. 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." Congratulations, Joel, for making the right decision. You deserve a medal.
