Frederick Douglass said "Power concedes nothing without a challenge, it never has and it never will""  

 

Now is the time for institutions like the Big 12, the NCAA, and the other women's basketball programs to challenge Baylor University's stance on sexuality. 

 

Perhaps if Baylor, and Mulkey, risked losing their opportunities and accomplishments in women's basketball, they would open their arms to fully embrace heroes like Britney Griner.  And, in doing so, they would welcome so many other members of their community who do not feel free to live openly to share their lives and vast experience in ways that would make Baylor better and in turn all of us better.
