Are you deliberately obstuse or really just unable to grasp what we want from the IAAF? I don't want to see her case file. I want to see how the IAAF are making their decisions.>>>>And how could they possibly do that without directly or indirectly revealing data about Caster Semenya's medical condition? You want a clear cut definition of male and female. There isn't one.The IAAF have made a judgement based on expert testimony but you in your arrogance feel that you have a right to know and challenge the opinions of eminent scientists and doctors whose feet you are not fit to wash.These cases will continue to be rare and each one will be investigated on its own merits. Rightly so.It doesn't concern you. Move on.

"If you're not completely female you compete in open."... completely female .....
You want a clear cut definition of male and female. There isn't one.-------------------No... again you have just not understood and have come back with more rubbish. Suprise suprise.I want a clear indication of the rules of how an athlete is classified by the IAAF in the future.It's a good job people on these boards already know what a obtuse WUM you are or you'd be in danger of being taken seriously.Anyway, I'm off, I have more important things to do that are directly involved with what I talk about. Unlike you.
"The IAAF have made a judgement based on expert testimony"More like a fear of becoming bankrupt because the South African lawyers realised that they could make a fortune out of Semenya.As I've said. I hope it goes two ways. She's had hormone treatment and we'll barely hear from her again, or she decimates the records and makes a laughing stock of the sport.I don't understand what part of my post that you quoted is funny. She's essentially a man with external female genetalia. Not too complicated.
"Nor should there be in this case. It must remain confidential. Semenya's right to privacy is bigger than the sport."=======================================This depends on what Semenya wants to do IceColdBoy.If Semenya wants to retain her privacy, drop out of the public eye and not compete for fame and Prize Money then I 100% agree with you.If, however, Semenya wants to accumulate fame and fortune from the Sport and beat other athletes - thus stopping them from getting such riches - then we should all know what criteria they have used to judged Semenya female for the purposes of elite competition.

The level of ignorance shown on this thread astounds and appalls me. FH2 is up to his usual tricks by labelling anyone who disagrees with him a "WUM". Why don't you grow out of it. You've been here long enough!
Well done posting on a 2 week old thread, must have taken you ages to think up that repost
Unlike you, I don't visit this board everyday. When I do, I endeavor to go through topics of interest to me. This is one such topic. Since the thread is still open for comments, I did just that- comment!
and what a useful contribution it was too. Worth waiting two weeks for
