Sports really isn’t our thing, but we are all over stories about hermaphrodites.
Caster Semenya has been making headlines since the South African won a victory in the 800-meter during the world championships. Many people began to question whether or not Semenya was really a women due to her broad shoulders, deep voice, lack of lady lumps, and handlebar mustache…ok, she shaved.
Turns out those inquiring minds were on to something. After being forced to take a gender test by The International Association of Athletics Federations, it turns out that Semenya is both a girl and a boy.
Via New York Daily News:
“The 18-year-old South African champ has no womb or ovaries and her testosterone levels are more than three times higher than those of a normal female, according to reports…Semenya could be stripped of the gold medal she won in Berlin last month and her competitive future is in limbo, according to Australia’s Daily Telegraph.”
The Federation has also suggested that Semenya have the necessary surgery to fix his…her…its little problem.
Semenya released the following statement:
“God made me the way I am and I accept myself. I am who I am and I’m proud of myself. I don’t want to talk about the tests. I’m not even thinking about them.”
She then grabbed her crotch, spit, and asked what time the game was on.
