    Dutee Chand: A Woman Banned From Women’s Sports

    Now to open a can of worms,

    http://onlyagame.wbur.org/2014/10/11...m_content=2035


    Huh? If that isn't some shit huh?
    Of the single rapier fight between valiant men, having both skill, he that is the best wrestler, or if neither of them can wrestle, the strongest man most commonly kills the other, or leaves him at his mercy.

    Good thing they don't have this rule for men, or else Don Frye would've never had a career.
    Dan Severn loves raping people.

      What the fuck?? Sorry, but you're naturally better than other athletes we can't have that. Bullshit like this is why the future of sports is doomed.

          I think it's more a matter of "your physiology can mask doping" than "you're naturally better."

                I think that's kind of hairsplitting when the drugs that would mask only confer the advantage she has naturally.

                  Well, yes. But the rule is pretty obviously intended to weed out dopers, not medical outliers.

                  What else are you going to do, quarantine each competitor under strict supervision, and test after a period of time to determine each individual's baseline testosterone level?

                    A cut off is too low if people can have that level naturally, seems like a more reasonable conclusion.

                      Either way, banning her from competition is wrong.

                        So, you test her specifically to see if she is cheating or not. You give her a baseline test for her specific condition. They give medical exceptions for asthma sufferers who use steroid based medicine. If it is too high, they get stripped of their medal.

                          I'm not intimately familiar with testing procedures. If they are sophisticated enough to produce accurate results, then certainly governing bodies could make this policy for people of either sex with naturally high testosterone levels.

                            That sets a bad precedent though. It stops being about not cheating and starts being about making everything exactly equal like in that Kurt Vonnegut short story.

                              I say fuck it let it stop being about genetics all together and just start allowing PEDs.
