Caster Semenya is a South African runner and Olympic gold medalist. This woman is very fast and easily beats her fellow runners. Because she is so fast, her gender has been questioned many times. She had her sex tested without her permission and it was discovered that she has high testosterone levels, however she was born a woman, raised as a woman, and identifies as a woman. The IAAF claims that this gives her an unfair advantage over the other female runners when it’s something she can’t control. They have said she will have to either take drugs that will suppress her testosterone, which can severely damage her health, or she will have to run with the men. The whole situation is ridiculous as Michael Phelps who has a disease that causes him to have a large wingspan aids him in swimming and he’s praised for it. Why can’t the same thing be done for Semenya? This situation would be different if Ms. Semenya was a white female and we all know it. We have to grab the attention of the IAAF so that she can run with the women without having to take any harmful drugs.
