Gender Testing of Female Atheletes

Are you a boy or a girl? Flash presentation.

You know, I always wondered, do/did they ever test people competing as *male* atheletes to make sure they're *really* men, or has this always been some kind of wacked-out, let's make sure the girls are protected macho thing?

1 comments so far. Got something to say?

It's based entirely on the assumption that men would pose as women to gain an unfair advantage. Because, of course, we all know that males have an inherent advantage over females in all sports, and the social stigma associated with transgender identification or behaviour is no big deal compared to the obvious advantage one would gain in playing women's sports.

(Hopefully my tone is quite clear here.)
