So.....Caster has male parts

Which is a pity because she has some great athletic potential further down her career. What she will do now is anyone's guess as I am assuming that any other athlete out there will complain bitterly if she ever competes again internationally.

This whole story though has left a bitter taste in my mouth. It shows the utter disregard for gender and gender issues that this current government has, that they are naive about issues that are not clear cut and a case of pull your pants down to prove your sex. It also shows a severe lack of understanding on the part of ASA in how to handle international incidents.

And shame on the media for breaking this story before she was ever told of her test results. Disgusting.
