    The IAAF ruling isn't perfect for the reasons you mention among others, but it's hopefully a sign of things to come.

    Indeed. It's tricky to keep the pressure up on sporting bodies when Sharron Davies, Kelly Holmes, Martina Navratilova and the like get shouted down as TERF-scum whenever they raise the issue though.

    Lots of people are kicking up a fuss. Stop pretending that the weight of argument isn't with the status quo. You can't get shouted down without kicking up a fuss - and the actual rulings are going the way you want them to.

    So, for intersex athletes, what's your suggestion for a fair and equitable solution? Or is your solution "tough shit, you don't get to be an athlete because you were born different".

    I can see a relatively simple halfway house that everyone would probably be unhappy with. But I'm interested in what you think, or if you've thought about it?

    Lock them all in Arkham and throw away the key, right?

    On a serious note, they can have DSD exclusive competitions if they want, no issue there.

    Massive issues there tbh. Imagine being branded "intersex sports". It would be horrid for them - they'd get crucified.

    I’ve deliberately avoided conflating intersex and trans issues in sport because they aren’t the same things.

    I can’t see a solution to intersex people in sport that doesn’t treat someone ‘unfairly’ though. Intersex people didn’t choose to be born the way they are but they often have a massive advantage over non-intersex females.

    Suggest away...

    I think people would watch that. Not me, but I'm sure it'd pique someone's interest.

    Dug a bit further and it was a response to a direct question by a typical woke bbc journalist.

    Which is even worse really.

    Firstly that the question was asked and secondly most of the articles print it as he 'told' the press, not replied to a question.
    This is how the fuckers bend the truth.

    Then they should.

    We're gonna have to change a few things. It's not hard to have another tick-box for plod. Especially if we want to understand crime.

    Better data is better...
