My thoughts on the ad is simple. Much like the Kaepernick one, it's really well done as are most Nike ads. The problem I have with it is its pulling on emotions and not good logic. The ad says she was "Born to do it." Well if someone is born a paraplegic, they are born to compete wheelchair category of athletics. However, we don't let them race able-bodied runners because they would win every major marathon in the world. It's an unfair advantage to have wheels in a marathon. The same thing is true in terms of testosterone in women's athletics.
I mean Nike could run the same ad featuring the CT Hser who wa csompeting in indoor track as a man and then winning a state title as a woman outdoors.
In my mind, Semenya is truly intersex so unless there is a third category, hormone treatment is the best option.
That's Marketing 101. For Ivy Leagues the Brojos sure do lack basic common sense.
And yet you are on their website talking about it.
