Olympic champion Caster Semenya loses landmark case on testosterone levels

The Court of Arbitration for Sport’s panel of three judges gave a complex verdict and ’dismissed both requests for arbitration’ from Semenya and the governing body of track and field.

BBC claims that finding a genetic anomaly invalidates binary gender and that male and female divisions in sport is arbitrary. In other news U.K. hospitals will be soon firing all medical personnel and retaining only the clown doctors.

This is just ridiculous. If being intersex has no advantage, then why are there so many intersex individuals in women's sports but not men's, despite being such a rare group of people? They shouldn't be allowed to compete for fairness and safety of women. It sucks for these people, but let's face it, they have only gone down this career route because they have an unfair advantage that makes them good. They should accept it's unfair, do something else for money, and let women have their league.

People with abnormal conditions that require them to take testosterone or cause them to create excess should be banned from female sports. Sorry but T gives you an unfair advantage. MTF trans should be banned for the same reason, male puberty gives an unfair advantage. This makes it fairer for the majority of contestants, yes at the expense of the 0.01% but that's life. If you've got T maybe a male league will let you in, but you have no business beating on biological females. We have sex separated sports for a reason.

I think even if she was transgender she should be allowed to compete with women purely for the fact it would be hilarious to tune into women’s sports in 5 years and watch teams comprised entirely of blokes with long hair playing for women’s trophies lol

If Men and Women are equal and its not an advantage for Trans-women to play professional sport with Women, where are all the Trans-men tearing it up in the Mens Professional leagues?
