New Film Focuses on Homophobia in Women's Sports

Training Rules, a fantastic new movie about homophobia in women's sports, tells the story of Jen Harris, an athlete who started getting recruited by college basketball programs in the fifth grade. She ends up playing ball at Penn State, where she was called one of the 20 best women's basketball players in the country and was a sure bet to ultimately play in the WNBA. Harris winds up getting kicked off the team because of her coach's homophobia, and chooses to fight. This movie showcases the decades of discrimination inside the Penn State women's basketball program and how Jen Harris does not take the news of being kicked off the team quietly.
