Wonder if anyone has been following the World Athletics Championship? I have and like many others I have been puzzled by the physique and performance of the South African athlete Caster Semenya.
She does not look very female and “her” performances leave every other competiting athlete in the shade.
I understand that “gender tests” are underway and there is speculation that Caster may be a hermaphrodite! I heard someone from South African sports being interviewed about this and they were outraged at the suggestion that their start athlete may not be all she seems.
I think that IF you have to ask the question about gender identity in the first place something is wrong and I do question the South African athletic authorities who have determined to let Caster go forward when it is obvous there are issues involved.
This does NOTHING for South African sport, let alone South African womanhood. In my view. Caster may have won a gold medal but this performance is tarnished until we determine whether the she is a he.
