Read This Brittney Griner Profile And Try Not To Fall In Love With Her

This month's issue of Elle contains a profile of WNBA player Brittney Griner made me fall in love with her a little bit. And it will probably make you fall a little in love with her, too.

Griner, who stands 6'8" and can fucking dunk, is an out-of-the-closet lesbian who wears men's clothing and refuses to eat vegetables. Why is the vegetable thing somehow making her even more endearing? I don't know!


Bonus: in the piece, profile author Laurie Abraham takes a frank and occasionally uncomfortable look at her own attitudes about gender identity, sexuality, and femininity that aren't necessarily on the cutting edge of western thought, but are refreshing to see written about in a mainstream women's magazine. Read it! Then start doodling her name all over your notebooks!
