Woman? Man? I’m confused.

One of the hottest topics in sports at the moment (apart from the incredible Usain Bolt) is the gender question raised against a South African athlete.  Caster Semenya is making headlines all over the world this week, but not because the 18 year-old shocked the world by taking home the gold metal by a mile in the 800-meter competition at the World Track and Field Championships in Germany. Rather, the reason Semenya is such a hot topic is because many people and pickyrpoison want to know:

Is Caster Semenya a SHE, or is she actually a HE?
