Caster Semenya has suffered gross human rights violations at the hands of the IAAF. She is NOT transgender as Fox News stated; she is a woman - and the IAAF suggesting that she either take testosterone lowering medication or compete with MEN is discriminatory and completely unfair. The IAAF’s “regulations” are unethical and should be rendered invalid. 

There are many factors which contribute to athletic success - should we disqualify tall athletes from participating in long jumps? Similarly, why are we disqualifying someone whose body NATURALLY develops a higher level of testosterone, when the research surrounding “raised” testosterone and increased speed and endurance are controversial to say the least?

We stand behind Caster Semenya and will fight for her human rights to be recognised.
