IN MY SKIN BRITTNEY GRINER PDF

Buy: book ebook. The resulting portrait can be wickedly unflattering. Sacrifices endured and relationships suspended in pursuit of victories can fade, chapter by chapter, from the dedicated to the maniacal. Her entire basketball career—started almost accidentally at the beginning of high school—feels, in the book, like it almost slides by in the background of a much broader and universal story of a girl growing into a woman and looking to be loved. It would not, in a better world, be very difficult for Griner to find acceptance.

Baylor is a private university with formally written codes that attempt to legislate homosexuality out of the student body—but manage to never mention it to Griner during their extensive recruiting process. Audacious behavior that we classify as entertainment when coming from male athletes—i.

The female athlete, it seems, remains unable to simply pursue the upper reaches of their potential: they still must wear the conservative corset of Role Model, each career move and publically disseminated tone necessarily calibrated to wholesomely uplift the next generation of female athletes in only the most focus-group-approved-of ways.
