Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual, Transgender ....Hyperandrogenism??

GLBT may need to add another discriminated group. These are women who have been barred from world-class track and field competition because of high natural levels of testosterone.

The International Association of Athletics Federations (I.A.A.F.) has two years to prove that women with testosterone levels over 10 nanomoles per liter are not qualified to participate in female competitions.

On Monday, July 27, 2015 the Court of Arbitration for Sport made the above ruling on this issue for Dutee Chand.

I am going to post the article at the end of this posting, but I wanted to quote a couple of snippets from the Court of Arbitration for Sport:

  • ... sex is part of a spectrum, not a this-or-that definition easily divided for matters such as sport
  • ... sex in humans is not simply binary
  • Nature is not neat. There is no single determinant of sex.
I would give up one of my Social Security checks to hear our Supreme Court Justices comment on this. 
Hey, this could be the next great talking point for the presidential candidates.
