18 yo wrestler refuses to wrestle girl - forfeits match

  • A Colorado high school student forfeited the state tournament match rather than wrestle a girl during the match.
    Brendan Johnston, 18, a senior at the Classical Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., forfeited his match against Jaslynn Gallegos, a senior at Skyview High in the first round of the tournament on Thursday, Feb. 21, KDVR reported. A few days later on Saturday, Feb. 23, he forfeited the match against Angel Rios, a junior at Valley High, in the third-round consolation match, ending his high school wrestling career.

    The student cited his religious and personal beliefs for forfeiting the matches.

    “It’s so physical... physically close. I don’t think that’s really appropriate with a young lady. It’s also very aggressive and I’m not really, I guess, comfortable with that,” Johnston told KDVR.
    Johnston has never wrestled a girl before and also forfeited against a female opponent in the state tournament last year, the media outlet reported.
    “And I guess the physical aggression, too,” the student told the Denver Post. “I don’t want to treat a young lady like that on the mat. Or off the mat. And not to disrespect the heart or the effort that she’s put in. That’s not what I want to do, either.”
    Rios and Gallegos ended up making history after becoming the first females to place at the tournament. Rios placed fourth and Gallegos placed fifth.
    Gallegos told The Washington Post that she understood why he forfeited.
    “This whole time that I’ve wrestled, it’s just me trying to prove a point that I am just a wrestler,” Gallegos said. “And so the fact that my gender is something that kind of holds me back still is just a little nerve-racking, but I respect his decision. It’s fine.”
    Rios said was disappointed by Johnston’s decision to forfeit, she’s hoping her story will motivate others to follow.
    “I’m hoping it motivates them to be the best they can,” Rios said.
    As for Johnston, he said he does not regret his decision.
    “Wrestling is something we do, it’s not who we are,” Johnston told The Denver Post. “And there are more important things to me than my wrestling. And I’m willing to have those priorities."

  • Kudos and God bless him for what he did, but as a hideous aside, how far have we fallen as a society that the idea of co-ed wrestling was even brought up? Even the mongoloid SJWs in California recognize that God made the sexes to be different, especially in size and strength.

  • Co-ed wrestling is one more feature of our depraved society.  It's crazy on many levels.  For example if a male -- how about the exact same male -- had a small fraction of the physical contact with the same female off the wrestling match against the female's wishes that male would be facing serious felony charges, and rightfully so.  If the male is caught after numerous instances of this kind of conduct with different females society will breath a sigh of relief that the monster has been caught.  On the other hand, if the monster channels his desires for this contact into school wrestling and has numerous encounters of this nature with female opponents, hey that's just great -- what a wonderful open minded guy that same society will think!
