    Do we not random test for PEDs now?

    I'm sure there are issues to every idea as to how to solve this. But we test now to keep athletes from having a competitive advantage. Obviously, certain hormones, at certain levels, do this as well.

    Honestly, any change will create court battles and it's unlikely to change anything. Eventually, there may no longer be a separation of men's and women's sports which will mean many female athletes will lose scholarship opportunities.

    the IAAF just ruled against a Kenyan olympic 800m champion born a Male who's been competing as a woman, requiring (it) to take hormone reduction therapy in order to compete going forward.

    Her laywers are saying its a civil/human rights abuse now and that he/she(it) could lose as much as 7 seconds off her 800m time.

    Doesn't that statement by the lawyers prove the point that (it) is in the wrong biology class?

    lol

    first off, she is South African, not Kenyan. She is also not transexual, not born as a man. She is a hermaphrodite, a genetic mutation where she is kinda both male and female. She was raised as female from birth.

    So does that mean girls raised as Tomboys need to run against men?

    lol I am not romantisizing it and I do not even like comic book stuff.

    I do not even have a problem with the ruling.


    It is a medical fact though. people with this genetic mutation have always existed.
