Cartoon: Leave Caster Semenya Alone!

Seriously, screw gender testing, and screw those IAAF jerks telling this world champion runner she's not a real woman. The only reason she was tested was because she didn't match some visual standard of European femininity. I'm not sure how much to trust the media on any of this, but I read reports today that she is "shattered" by the humiliation of the gender testing and possibly on suicide watch.

Before you cross the finish line—we’ll need to see inside your shorts!

 

And would it KILL you to run in heels and lipstick?
