Does Professional Wrestling Corrupt Our Youth Media analysts have uncovered a new culprit in the growing culture of violence among American youth professional wrestling Long considered boorish and pretentious televised wrestling is now regularly full of vulgarity obscenity and sexual innuendo Critics say professional wrestling reinforces sexual and ethnic stereotypes and communicates to young people that violent vengeful acts are morally acceptable The devastating impact of all this violence affects children because one-third of the viewing population is children under the age of fourteen Years ago professional wrestling gave up the silly notion that it was simply a sporting event Promoters programmers and the wrestlers themselves admit the matches are choreographed and a winner is predetermined Now there are scriptwriters who write lines for wrestlers to recite in the ring in backstage dressing-room banter even in car chases Running story lines of feuds between the wrestlers and their women followers have included attempted rape Threats of killing are common in the prematch rhetoric Real wrestling is secondary and participants are not so much athletes as actors I feel that professional wrestling especially the WWF World Wrestling Federation corrupts the moral values of our youth and has taken a step in the wrong direction especially concerning women It makes womanizing seem glorious and acceptable In the past year the WWF has stooped to portraying violence against women This violence is not portrayed as women wrestling each other but as men beating up women There are many sexual stereotypes occurring in the world of wrestling that damages the minds of children For example the WWF has had a character called The Godfather His gimmick is hes a pimp He has women dressed like prostitutes follow him around He calls them his ho train whore train If he is defeated his opponent supposedly takes the women from him for the night I feel that his is very damaging to the mentality of both boys and girls
