Caster Semenya: I have high testosterone, so what?

The double Olympic champion Caster Semenya’s battle with the athletics authorities rolls on as she continues to fight an IAAF regulation that would make her take testosterone-lowering medication. The South African athlete will not be able to defend her 800-metres title in September after the Swiss Federal Tribunal reversed a ruling that temporarily lifted testosterone regulations imposed against her. Speaking at a press conference in Johannesburg the 28-year-old said that ‘when you’re the best in the world, people get obsessed’.

    So why do we separate male and female athletes in the first place if we're supposed to ignore your physique

    So what? … You should return your medals. Female athletes should stop competing as there is a biological obvious, evident and massive clear 'hormonal advantage' and if you have any doubt, please ask a child.

    So what? Testosterone makes you stronger and allows you to have more endurance. That's "so what". It's simple science.

    A lot of ignorance in these comments, people should read more about endocrinology before judging her.

    I find the solution of taking testosterone lowering medication completely insufficient. Castor will still have the advantages of lifelong male testosterone levels as well as male muscle and build.
