Fighting for legal and social recognition outside the gendered societal structure
“We all have differences in our hormone levels - in our gender (assessment of ourselves) - we are all on a spectrum and there is probably no such thing as one hundred percent male/one hundred percent female”
Not my words this time but those of Dr Gerard Conway, Consultant Endocrinologist, University College London Hospitals - quoted in contribution to documentary production following Caster Semenya, courageous and very dignified winner of Berlin 2009 800m world athletics championship.
Isn’t it wonderful when those experts aren’t afraid to speak the truth and talk sense!
Too Fast to be a Woman? The Story of Caster Semenya was broadcast BBC2 Tuesday 22 February.
The denial of existence is the worst act of discrimination by the gendered majority against the non-gendered.
