The tragedy in which that young lady is featuring is still ongoing.
Imagine the embarassment. She has been examined, and her private information has been 'leaked' to the media. And of course now it is in the public domain. She is a neither woman nor man. Or she is both a man and woman. And we all know it.
How would you feel if this was public knowledge?
How does the IAAF feel about it? They have effectively destroyed the life of a young person, because they have to prove that she is not 'cheating'. As a sop, they are leaving her with the medal that she won. So, is she a man or woman? Will she be allowed to compete anymore?
I was talking to Julius, and he told me something horrible. That traditionally, children born with ambiguous genitalia are killed soon after birth. His story tells of the trials he went through. What about Castor...
Yeah, our unbending world can be very, very cruel.
My prayers to Castor Semenya as she passes through this time of shame. Hope South Africans can still find the strength to stand by her. Just as she is.
