. Running is being. Running is a way to be who YOU are. We all get that. So we should get that when the person doing the running is Caster.
This doesn't mean that we shouldn't have compassion for the women that Caster is beating like a drum. We should. It does mean that Caster isn't trying to be evil, just trying to make the best of a bad situation.
Yeah .. if "making the best of a bad situation" means winning because you have an unfair advantage over your competitors. Potentially winning Olympic medals because of an unfair advantage over your competitors.
I think that few people think Caster is "trying to be evil." She's simply enjoying the unjust benefit of being able to compete as a "woman" (however that is currently scientifically defined -- and yes, it HAS TO be defined as a matter of fairness.)
No one says Caster shouldn't run. Run, Caster, run.
Run against men and run the times of a very good, but not internationally exceptional high school boy. Run against state meet winners.
But when she runs against competitors where her "right" to run deprives them of justice and an even playing field, I would uphold their rights above your described need for her to express her "being" by running against competitors who have a disadvantage.
Sepulchre8, you bring up excellent points.
I think the shame that Semenya and Tucker feel is a result of their actions.
Hopefully somewhere deep inside they know that what they are doing is wrong.
If not, that is sad, and too bad that they don't feel that shame, for what they are trying to do to women's athletics.
