A Colorado high school wrestler pulled out of a state wrestling match so he would not have to wrestle a girl.
Brendan Johnston, a senior at Classical Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado removed himself from the wrestling competition after learning that he would be facing a female, and this wasn’t the first time. Johnston forfeited a match his junior year for the same reasons.
Fox News reports that Johnston was up against “Jaslynn Gallegos, a senior at Skyview High in the first round of the tournament on Thursday, Feb. 21,” which he forfeited. But, happening again, “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.”
Fighting this lose-lose situation, Johnston explained that he had many reasons for not wanting to wrestle against the opposite sex.
In an interview with KDVR Johnston said, “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.”
Keeping a good relationship between his female competitors, Johnston said, “I think it’s possible to forfeit while still respecting them as athletes and competitors. I really don’t want to disrespect the hard work these ladies have put in. They’ve done a lot of that too. Some people think by forfeiting I’m disrespecting them. That’s not my intention at all.”
Having the utmost respect for females, Johnston told the Denver Post why he decided to forfeit, “And I guess the physical aggression, too. 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.”
Johnston handled the situation maturely and respectfully. Feeling that he could not disrespect women by putting them in physical harm, he decided it best to pull out of the match. It’s a shame he had to end his high school athletic career because there are no high school female wrestling teams in Colorado, so females are allowed to be a part of male teams.
If wrestling in Colorado is such a big sport for females, it stands to reason that there would be a female league at this point – instead of making males alter their training and performance to appease a small group of girls.
Johnston remained in high spirits about not finishing out his high school wresting career, “Wrestling is something we do, it’s not who we are. And there are more important things to me than my wrestling. And I’m willing to have those priorities.”
President Trump Shuts Down Minnesota Governor’s Demand for $500 Million in Riot Repair Funds
He wanted the taxpayer to pay for the riots.
President Donald Trump formally declined a request from Minnesota Governor Tim Walz to declare Minneapolis a federal disaster zone in the wake of the George Floyd race riots on Saturday, preventing the city’s Democratic governor and mayor from bilking the taxpayer for bailout funds to repair the damage they tacitly allowed through refusal to halt the riots.
Walz’s office confirmed that the White House had refused his request for an emergency declaration on Saturday in a press release, explaining that the governor had hoped the federal government would clean up the mess.
“The Governor is disappointed that the federal government declined his request for financial support,” said a spokesperson in a statement. “As we navigate one of the most difficult periods in our state’s history, we look for support from our federal government to help us through.”
The rioting in Minneapolis may have been among the most destructive ever to occur in the United States, devastating the community, causing what some estimate to be $500 million in damages to property, and damaging more than 500 buildings. Many Americans probably wouldn’t know it, as the corporate media has largely focused on promoting the activities of the rioters, falsely describing them as peaceful protestors, allowing the model of community destruction to be exported to other American communities.
Both Governor Walz and neoliberal Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey had waited fecklessly to deploy the Minnesota National Guard to contain the dangerous situation, hoping to appease the raging mob as the rioters torched a Minneapolis police precinct and destroyed countless small businesses in the city’s downtown area.
At the very least, the state’s Democratic officials won’t be rewarded with a hefty federal bailout as a result of their own irresponsibility and political fecklessness in refusing to crack down on criminal rioters. Sadly, it’ll be members of the Minneapolis community who pay for the cowardice of their local officials, and the once-serene upper-class community may never recover, instead morphing into a dilapidated shell of its former self.
