I’m studying for my English class and need an explanation.
Training Rules is a documentary film that examines how women’s sport has been influenced by homophobic practices. The film highlights a successful women’s basketball coach, Rene Portland and her three training rules: No drinking, no drugs and no lesbians.
In 2006, one student athlete challenged Coach Portland’s rules and filed discrimination charges based on sexual orientation. This recent litagation has forced the NCAA and athletic departments nation wide to examine how it is protecting it’s own student-athletes from overt (as in this case) and subtle forms of discrimination of this nature.
