Shocking revelation: She's got bollocks



- World champion Caster Semenya 'is a hermaphrodite with no womb or ovaries' - Australian newspaper's shock claims over gender-row runner

World champion 800m runner Caster Semenya is a hermaphrodite with no womb or ovaries, an Australian newspaper has claimed.

Quoting a source close to the International Association of Athletics Federations, the Sydney Daily Telegraph said Semenya had internal testes - male sexual organs which produce testosterone and which in turn produces muscle bulk, body hair and a deep voice.

The 18-year-old won gold with a sensational final-lap sprint to streak away from the competition in Berlin last month. Britain’s Jenny Meadows took bronze in that 800m final.

The IAAF received Semenya's gender test results today. However athletics chiefs said they would not be revealed for up to two weeks - once they had had a chance to speak with Semenya. IAAF spokesman Nick Davies said the results would only be made public once other experts had studied them and the 800m World Champion herself had been contacted personally.

Mr Davies said: 'We have the final results from the specialist tests carried out in Germany. 'These now need to be interpreted by a panel of experts drawn from the IAAF Medical Commission and some outside specialists as well.

'It is likely that we will be in a position to then discuss the results, in private, with Semenya, and decide on the course of action and any public announcement.'Nothing will therefore be announced or confirmed until we are in a position to have the expert evaluation of the results, and discuss them with the athlete.'We cannot give an exact timing but probably within the next couple of weeks.'

However the Sydney Daily Telegraph claimed the results had been leaked by a source.

Referring to Semenya as a 'she', the paper said she has three times more testosterone than a normal female. The gender-test results could see her stripped of the gold medal she won last month in Berlin, although the IAAF claimed the recovering the medal would prove difficult.

Semenya, said the paper, is unaware of the tests identifying her as a hermaphrodite. Fans in South Africa have strongly defended the runner amid claims by doubters that she won her medal unfairly because she was really a man.

The population has rallied behind 'Our Girl', hitting back at the accusations with further allegations of racism.

South Africans have been so protective of her that Mr Butana Komphela, an African National Congress MP, has lodged a complaint with the UN High Commission on Human Rights.

He has accused the IAAF of racism and sexism.

But today the Sydney Daily Telegraph is quoting an anonymous source as saying that while there is 'certainly' evidence that Semenya is a hermaphrodite, the IAAF now has the whole of the African National Congress - and in fact the whole of South Africa - on their backs.

The source was quoted as saying: 'There's all sorts of scans you do. 'This is why it's complicated. In the past you used to do a gynaecological exam, blood test, chromosome test, whatever. That's why (the findings) were challenged, because it's not quite so simple.

'So what they do now is they do everything, and then they can say look, not only has she got this, she's got that and the other.

'The problem for us is to avoid it being an issue now which is very personal - of the organs being a hermaphrodite, of not being a "real" woman. It's very dramatic.'It will not be until next week that the IAAF is expected to receive full details of the tests on Semenya.

Last week, when questioned about the controversy by the South African magazine YOU, Semenya said: 'I see it all as a joke. It doesn't upset me. 'God made me the way I am and I accept myself. I am who I am and I'm proud of myself. I don.t want to talk about the tests. I'm not even thinking about them.'

The ANC and the ASA hijacked this situation for maximum gain. They will get the gain alright, but not the one they expected. The result will show them as being a bunch of fraudulent, insensitive and racists pricks. If anybody aspires to a sense of superiority, it is the ANC and perhaps blacks in general. As for Mr. Semenya, I would like to think he is just an innocent victim, but truth be told he is a student at UP, and therefore should have had the intellect to question why his performances were so exceptional, or why his appearance was abnormal. For Pete's sake man, my 6 year old daughter is aware of differences in appearance.

A he you say?????

I beg to differ.

A freak of nature would be a suitable scientific description, if a little direct.

@Anon 5:37am. Unless you are one of those that thinks that gender is a social construct, and strictly we could classify gender into 5 categories, you have to agree that Semenya had already started to transition to male. Somewhere the process was disturbed. This does not negate the fact that he has hormones that correspond to being a male. So he is definitely not a she, which means, in the absence of another term, it is a he.

Hey Malema liked him and called him an angel. Shit now at least we have to wonder about Zuma and his choices with regards to women.

Isn't there a movie called "IT"

ExZ. Love the picture. Upon further reflection, Semenya knew something was wrong. There has been controversy surrounding him since he competed at school level. Parents have been complaining for ages. This isn't a bolt out of the blue. I think they are a bunch of cheats all round, so desperate to be good at something. That is the tragedy.

Let's see old Julius plant a wet one on his lips now..

It`s got bollocks?

Quark said...

"Normal" black males regularly sodomize other males to subjugate them. So I don't think Semenya's "sexual status" would put Julius off, it may even excite him.

No it was called "ET" - Extra Testicals.

Whoever photoshopped the pic was being a little generous no?

...."and decide on the course of action and any public announcement"....

In other words.."the liberal, politically correct manner in explaining to the the world and especially the racist shouting munts in sa that it's ok to be a man and a woman because you have the best of both worlds....

Also, when someone tells you to go fuck yourself, you really can!

Dachshund said...

The ANCYL will call for Semenya to be made an honorary female because he/she has a vagina. Not having a womb or ovaries puts him/her on roughly the same level as a woman who's had a hysterectomy. Those bothersome inner testicles ... what the eye doesn't see, the heart doesn't grieve.

The biggest twats here are the AFA and you can bet Semenya's flat chest that the ANC and ANCYL will make even bigger public testicles of themselves about this revelation, proving that no matter whether male or female, all the ANC can do is talk bollocks.

Doberman said...

@ TB, lol.

Actually I was referring to the movie "It" by Stephen King.

It is about a weird, non human monster.

Semen-ya has got bollocks, but they are internal. Outwards she has the anatomy of a woman, but she has internal bollocks. She also does not have ovaries.
She is neither male nor female.

She is a hermaphrodite.

So again I have to stress that he isn't a she, nor is she a he.

"IT" is the most applicable word.

Freak of nature is also applicable.

If it looks like a duck. Walks like a duck and talks like a duck. It must be a lion if it is black. If it is white it must be a pig with flu. According to the spokes idiots in ASSania because it can't be South Africa anymore. Change the name and turn off the lights. Time to dust off our ox wagons and band together in a laager not a larger, so that we can plan our journey to a safer area of the globe.

With no ovaries or uterus and internal male genitalia then it's a he. I can't believe that the family couldn't see that: he talks, walks, acts like a man; has no breasts, has facial hair and also has never had a menstrual cycle. Just when was the penny going to drop with them? If I had a daughter then I would have looked into this long ago. And what about the coach? Also, why did the SA team Dr resign so skielik? They all knew what the outcome was going to be and he jumped ship before he had to face the music. Old Chuene had his race card ready to go. Bunch of cheaters. And please don't say "poor Cast-her (or him)" - surely he knew what his body was doing and, as he was brought up as a male at school surely he must have had an inkling of why people would be upset. Did they really think other countries care a munchkin about the poor blacks? Maybe now they'll start to see that no one gives a toodle about SA and the blacks and that out in the big bad world you're judged on merit!! A foreign concept for the SA bleks that's for sure.
