Did we (or just me) miss this?
Oh lord, Caster's wife, Violet, has been repeatedly reported to be pregnant since 2017, especially in the Kenyan press. But the two have done tons of media on a regular basis since then, & in all the photos & videos I've seen Violet looks very much NOT pregnant - and no word or pics of a child have ever surfaced. Given how boastful Semenya is, you'd think if a baby had been born there'd be some crowing and breaking out of cigars - and a pic or two on SM. So who knows?
But the salient point is: some individuals with Semenya's DSD, 5-ARD, do father children with their own sperm, though often they need medical help to do so. Those born with micropenises sometimes can impregnate a woman the traditional way, whilst others whose external genitalia looks more "not male" and whose testes remain undescended or internal need to have their semen extracted by a medic, then inserted into the partner's vagina using what is colloquially known as the turkey-baster method.
From the paper from "Fertility and Sterility" posted upthread:
"A most interesting and intriguing male disorder of sexual differentiation is due to 5α-reductase-2 isoenzyme deficiency. These males are born with ambiguous external genitalia due to a deficiency in their ability to catalyze the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT)... At puberty, the surge in mainly testosterone production prompts virilization, causing most (who were raised as females) to choose gender reassignment to male.
"(However) fertility is a challenge for affected men for several reasons. Uncorrected cryptorchidism (undescended testicles) is associated with low sperm production, and there is evidence of defective transformation of spermatogonia into spermatocytes. The underdeveloped prostate and consequent low semen volumes affect sperm transport. Additionally, semen may not liquefy due to a lack of prostate-specific antigen..."
You're a real tough guy going after someone's wife. That would never be tolerated for any other athlete other than Semenya. I've seen people hate on Sir Mo but I have never seen anyone make hateful comments about his family.
You sir are a coward and you need to get a life and get over your obsession with Semenya.
LRC, you need to delete all of that because it's 100% out of line!
You don't find it a little odd that an athlete who claims to be female - as her supporters also maintain - has reportedly a pregnant wife? (Yes, two women in a relationship can have a child but it requires a male donor.)
