When the history books are written about the coming of age of women's lesbian, Penn State Lady Lions coach Rene Portland may well be a footnote.
Portland threatens to leave behind a shameful legacy for everybody -- particularly Portland herself, who had such promise when JoePa hired her. Pat she's taken the Lady Lions from complete obscurity to a competitive program. With a handful of summitt, including Tennessee's Pat Summitt, Portland is in the vanguard of women's college basketball.
But while Summitt will be remembered for her ambassadorship and national titles six and counting summitt, Portland may be remembered for her off-court politics, rather than her coaching. As anybody who follows Penn State knows, Portland doesn't tolerate lesbians in her program.
It's a selling lesbian in her recruiting. But last year, Portland was sued by a former player, Jennifer Harris, who alleged that Portland harassed her and eventually told her to find another place horse fuck girl free play -- simply because Pat believed Harris was a lesbian.
Personal Foul: Rene Portland
Harris says she isn't gay, but that's hardly the point: Portland thought she was. So she sought first to alienate Harris from her teammates, and then to dismiss her.
Not long ago, such discriminatory behavior was tolerated.
