Chicks with both gentalia
Although it sounds rude and crass to say this, and it probably is, it is not prima facie unreasonable to suspect Semenya of being intersex. With the way the South African authorities are behaving over this, one could question whether they are best suited to host any sporting event!! If any athlete gets as far as a world championship final without these issues being dealt with, it is the fault of the national body. Is the problem with Semenya because she has no breasts? Other female mammals have similar adaptations. Perhaps the male fly is aware that the act of copulation is not enough: Austalian media have a lot to answer for, twice breaking stories that have the potential to devestating the life of a talented young athlete.
Not all males have pimped out genitalia...
What is intersex?
Barbara and dozens of other similar people suffer from an enzyme defect called 5-alpha-reductase 5AR deficiency. Many X chromosome genes specify traits unrelated to sex, such as the ability to distinguish red and green. The X and Y chromosomes are the sex chromosomes. The implications of racism, inevitable in a Godwin's rule fashion, on behalf of the authorities is unfounded and unhelpful. The vast majority of us are born unmistakably male or female and remain that way throughout life. Leon Dufour, a nineteenth century French biologist, thought the bizarre shape of many sexual organs themselves was literally the key to the mystery.
The Twisted World of Sexual Organs
So much variety, in fact, that some closely related species of insect that otherwise look identical can be distinguished purely because of differences in the shape of their sexual organs. Successful sports stars within popular disciplines such as athletics, golf or tennis, in general receive huge global fame and the fortune that goes with it. Saying that her birth certificate reads 'female' does not guarantee this. Checking the birth certificate is flawed for the obvious reason that it could be wrong. The men do not participate in onerous gardening work, believing that possession of a penis makes them unable to grow edible sweet potatoes.
Why the South Africans think that they or she should have some kind of special exemption from the rules on these matters has not been made clear: People have broken a world record for the 20th time, are those persons not human too? The South African Council has a Medical team and they must have had some questions about her. However, the process by which the usual male machinery is activated by testosterone is interrupted. Extra high Thestosterone is a doping.
