That'll be a kick in the bollocks for her self esteem.

Sadly i'll be gone by the weekend

Paula Ratcliffe has run a marathon faster than most men and no-one has asked her to take a gender test.

I don't think anybody disputes Paula's a cunt. i.e. in possession of external genitalia typically associated with proper, full-time ladies.

My guess is that Ms Semenya has an unusual genetic or physiological profile, or perhaps even a disease process, such that it was not a deliberate act of deception that she competed in the ladies' races while exhibiting elevated testosterone levels.

The South Africans lack young black female role models. It's possible that, as in E Germany in the 70s and 80s she has been given 'special medicine' to improve her performance. I hope everything works out for her, as I think she has been shoddily treated by the Athletics authorities.
As you say, it could be natural, but it could also be that she is an innocent, being manipulated by a nation desperate for success.

Sounds like she's keeping her medal but they're going to have to consider whether she can run again as a woman.  So she must have increased testosterone, maybe something when she was in the womb where her male tackle didn't properly disappear.

I think she may have this,

In addition, there is a condition called androgen insensitivity syndrome where someone may have internal and undescended testes - and high levels of testosterone - but look like a woman and have a vagina and a uterus.

Is there an edoctor in the house?

Whatever, you'd have though they could have done it on the quiet and not taken her through this in public.

Indian woman went something very similar, tragic story really.

She might just have a knob?

Wouldn't.


Finally, someone you can really tell to go fuck themselves.

Probably couldn't - even if you could catch her.

Which you couldn't, unless you shoot like Bolt.

They should just give her her own race and let her win medals in that. Otherwise it is discrimination.
