Former Baylor University basketball star Brittney Griner has come forward saying that the school told her to keep quiet about her sexual orientation. The athlete opened up about her early days as a basketball player in a new autobiography titled, In My Skin. "The more I think about it, the more I feel like the people who run the school want it both ways: they want to keep the policy, so they can keep selling themselves a Christian university, but they are more than happy to benefit from the success of their gay athletes," she wrote. "That is, as long as those gay athletes don't talk about being gay."
