A Mind That Suits
What doesn't kill me, makes me laugh... usually.

This is a quote from a very silly person. Notice the infantile vocabulary, although the greatest fallacy is that sexual impulses are turned on or off at will, even by 15-year-olds. From a Washington Post article .
Mariah Burton-Nelson, a former women's basketball player who has written five books regarding sex roles in sports, disagrees. She says that banning mixed-sex wrestling because of inappropriate contact is "an attempt to sexualize women" and it helps perpetuate what she calls "the cootie-effect."
"Is wrestling an inherently erotic or sexual activity?" Burton-Nelson asked. "No. The wrestlers are trying to pin each other, not please each other."
