Indian Runner Fails Gender Test
« on: December 18, 2006, 02:31:56 pm »
In a artical by the associated press a woman that won a medal for running, failed the "Gender Test" and was determined not to meet the criteria for a "woman".... see article

I am not sure how to put a link directly in here so I hope this will work. If not if someone could fix this it would be appreciated.

When reading this article it really makes you stop and think where on earth these people think they get the power to determine ones sex when no one else has ever been able to. It also does not say in what way the woman did not meet the criteria. I find that interesting, what a thing to leave out!

Some years ago now, but a woman was barred from Olympics because tests showed her to be a man genetically.  Got no medals, but she had a child a year later.
