This issue brought a few considerations to my mind:
* What if a man is born with some condition that gives him twice the testosterone of any other man on the planet? Would we force him to reduce his testosterone? What if a man is born with a substantial physical advantage over all other men, to the point were he is almost inhuman? Would he be allowed to compete?
* If it is one's right to compete in the category that one considers him/herself a member of without having to take hormone therapy, as Semenya argues, then does that not also include all transgenders? ie. should not full males now be able to compete as females without undergoing hormone therapy? By what rules is Semenya classified as "female" and able to compete as "female" under the current system?
* What if a human is born with webbed feet and hands and becomes a competitive swimmer? Do we force him to undergoe surgery? Are not all people born with subtle physical advantages of one or another? What about tall basketball players? Are they not at an advantage?
* What is genetic engineering going to do to the world of athletics?
