Semenya has shown absolutely no class or morals whatsoever. Look at him showing off after his races, flexing his muscles and brushing off imaginary dust off his shoulders. Sticking out his tongue for the cameras etc.
Also, Semenya knows that he has ten times the level of testosterone than the average female. If Semenya had any morals, ethics or class, he would normalize his testosterone levels with medication or surgery . . . or quit the sport . . . or compete in the mens category. But Semenya won’t do any of these. Semenya has every right to compete if he normalizes his testosterone levels (either by ruling or by personal choice). Otherwise, Semenya does not belong in these womens races.
It is a travesty of justice, occurring in the name of bullshit political correctness.
How can Semenya even be proud of his Olympic medal? Is that really how African nations want to win Olympic medals? By finding Y chromosome hermaphrodites from rural villages and throwing them into the women races?
Semenya has no ovaries, no uterus, no breasts and no secondary sexual characteristics of a woman. Semenya married a woman. I don’t see how on earth Semenya fits the description of a woman and why on earth Semenya should be allowed to compete against normal women.
This truly is the end of women sports. In a few years if this trend continues, all world class competitions will be taken over by hermaphrodite athletes and regular woman will not stand a chance of winning, no matter how hard they train.
You have these PC white men on trackie.ca trying to raise their status and reputation in their AWMDRF (all white male distance runner fraternity). They are praising Semenya and saying that Semenya belongs in the same category as 'the greats'. It makes me want to vomit.
I think trying to raise your reputation by being super politically correct among the AWMDRF (all white male distance runner fraternity) is not only clearly disingenuous, but really just empty talk. Such talk is cheap.
Put your words into action and recruit some minority runners, or better yet, some intersex runners into your all white running clubs, then we will see if you really are truly supportive of such athletes. I have not seen this happen since I started running in Ontario three decades ago . . . and likely never will.
I personally think the only time the AWMDRF has any contact with a woman of colour is when they pour a bottle of Aunt Jemima maple syrup over their morning pancakes.
But alas, they just report your post to Adam Stacey and he conveniently deletes it and then sends an email stating ‘your post does not contribute to the forum’. What he really should say is ‘your post is not PC enough for our AWMDRF forum’. All this in Canada - a country that (supposedly) has freedom of speech in their bill of rights. Not anymore thanks to good ‘ol Justin Trudeau.
