Gold Medalist Runner Caster Semenya: Man or Woman? - ABC News
There are various gender issues on this site...I wanted to know where everyone's at on this one.
I guess my thing is that if Caster Semenya has a Y chromosone and was born a male (yes there are some instances where a woman can have a Y chromosone, but just go with me here), then she's a man and should have to compete against men.
Yes, she may have changed her genitals, but that still doesn't make her entirely a woman for sporting purposes. There could be many instances where desperate men who couldn't compete against their peers get sex changes and dominate the women's events. Yeah, it sounds extreme, but have you ever been around someone training for the Olympics? They're fucking nuts.
My point being that such an instance would give male-to-female transgenders an advantage in the women's events, but it wouldn't give a woman the ability to change her sex and dominate in the men's events. Seems kind of unfair, and it would irrevocably change women's sports. Hell, it would eradicate them, because women simply can't compete against men in sports.
(Although...tell that to Bobby Riggs after that Billie Jean King debacle...lol)
I dunno. That's my
What do you guys think?
