      Federal Judge Forces All Boys School
      Wrestling Team To Permit Girl To Join


      School argues that there are psychological, physical and moral risks for girls wrestling boys, however, Federal Judge Mathew Brann found that the school failed to present expert testimony or give any examples that support their claim that girls are fundamentally different from boys. This case makes us wonder whether his father or his mother gave birth to him, and which bathroom he/she now uses.

      Judge says Pa. girl wrestler allowed on boys' team

      The Associated Press

      WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- A federal judge is allowing a central Pennsylvania seventh-grader to be a member of the all-boys wrestling team at her middle school.

      U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann says in a ruling Monday that the Line Mountain School District failed to justify its reasons for preventing girls from wrestling with boys.

      The school district says there are psychological, physical and moral risks for girls wrestling boys, but Brann says the district did not present any expert testimony or examples to support those claims.

      Brian and Angie Beattie of Herndon filed a lawsuit last year, saying their daughter Audriana was being denied the opportunity to wrestle because of her gender.

      The girl's attorneys, Terry Fromson and Abbe Fletman, issued a statement praising the judge's decision.
