Yeah, yeah, yeah. Women can't park. Men won't ask directions. Women are obsessed by shoes and chocolate. Men are obsessed by football and leaving the seat up. Etc, etc, etc.
Oh, the hilarity.

Latest update though - the family has taken legal advice for the way this whole thing has been handled.
If she's taking legal advice it should be against the South African athletic board. The IAAF have the right to test any athlete. How could they do this without some sort of statement at the world champs? They could've done it after she won gold, but they still should've done it.
I think the family should shut up, back off and just wait and see what the results are. If she is 100% then they will be happy for her. After all she's gonna make alot of money out of athletics.

"Oh, the hilarity." and Oh, the sadness of not only reading, but posting on a thread you think is so unworthy.
And Oh, the even greater sadness of bothering to post a reply to my sad post..... This could run on, but it could just get too sad all round.
Could we not just see if Coops would shag her ?
If he would it's a woman
if he wouldn't it's a bloke
and if he had to think about it it's DM
dont comment much on here - but the iaaf changed its rules on this a few years back -
Basically if she is ( and i use she as thats what she has been brought up as) unfortunately or fortunately one of of percentage of folk that have both female and male hormones, then if she has spent her life as a female the they will look upon them as a female and would allow them to represent there country etc etc.
However this is all speculation through the press and until Iaaf make a ruling then I congratulate her on winning the 800m
I think it's sad and appauling that people can't just allow someone to be great!Bolt is on drugs because he is a bloke, so the only explanation for a female is to be a hermaphroditeTwats

Mmmm......I'm pretty glad you're not in charge of the IAAF PO!
3X testosterone levels and internal testes. The South African athletics board should get a massive fine for this. Total incompetence. They have thrust an 18yr old 'girl' into the world media for their own gratification.
Normal 18yr old girls don't look like Semanya and they definitely don't run as fast! I'm sure within a few weeks everything will be out in the open.
All the others that said this was a disgrace testing Semanya, should hang their heads in shame. Athletics cannot prosper if genetic abnormalities are allowed to compete, just because it is a sensitive matter.
Well done the IAAF. Congrats to Jenny Meadows, you will be collecting a silver medal, and so close you were, to getting gold.
Looks as if the ASA weren't innocent in all this...
"South Africa’s athletics authority carried out gender tests on the runner Caster Semenya before she travelled to Berlin last month, finding that she had internal testes but covering up the findings.
According to e-mail exchanges published today officials at Athletics South Africa (ASA) were aware that a Pretoria clinic had found that Ms Semenya had internal testes and produced abnormal amounts of testosterone for a woman."
Can't wait for the excuses
