It is very troubling to me to see yet again a photo in The Billings Gazette Dec. 24 of girls playing high school basketball that looks more like a wrestling match. This seems to be a common occurrence. I don't see the same kind of photos for boys basketball.
I am sure that The Gazette photographers are very skilled at taking photos at the hoop, so I'll assume it's the editorial staff that chooses to run the "wrestling" photos. The not so subtle message being sent is that girls are inferior to boys at playing basketball.
Hats off to female high school basketball players: You work hard and deserve photos that showcase your talents.
