Track Star* Caster Semenya given Makeover for Mag. What do you think!??

I haven’t really been following this story that much, but I have heard the rumors. Apparently this person, Semenya, was thought to have been a man posing as a woman in track events. She is a South African runner and has gained a lot of spotlight due to her “manly” looking features.

Now, when this issue first got heated this is the picture that I saw..


I was for sure convinced that this person was a male. There is a very prominent jaw, a wide face. Going further down, you can tell this person is in shape which is what had me a little confused. A small chest is never indicate of gender but these definitely looked like pecks to me. What convinced me, though, was what followed. This person’s shape is sort of like a V, sort of like a man’s shape. There are absolutely no hips, but wide legs, which I thought wasn’t really a characteristic of a women.

However, it has newly surfaced that this woman was duped into what she thought was a drug test. It turned out they were actually testing her gender. So, in the midst of all this, a You magazine cover comes out. Will it be successful in silencing the “critics” of her womanhood? Only time will tell…


What do you guys think about this situation? Is it really that serious?

How does it make you feel about Americans? Toward Africans?
