    Well if the medal is for the women`s division, then I think its justified. You can`t win the women`s medal if you`re a man. However, it sounds like it was a birth-defect sort of thing and not the athlete`s fault. I doubt she/he purposefully tried to trick them.

    That sounds fair.....wtf?" considering a man only has 1-2 Y chromosome(s), it seems fair

    You`d think the gender test would be taken BEFORE the competition, in order to avoid debacles like this.

    Men only have 1 Y chromosome. Usually anyway.

    XX-Women
    XY-Men

    XXY= Klinefelter`s syndrome. Which is probably the case here. It`s obvious that she`s a woman (I assume) but she also has the presence of a Y chromosome.

    I`m going to agree with this:

    XX-Women
    XY-Men

    XXY= Klinefelter`s syndrome. Which is probably the case here. It`s obvious that she`s a woman (I assume) but she also has the presence of a Y chromosome.

    That seems really unfair, that someone with Klinefelter`s or something along those lines should be penalized. I`m betting this runner is feeling very confused right now.

    Also, did anyone else notice a deliberate lack of personal pronouns in that article?

    hmm )-|, thats kinda weird. lol. That would suck to work so hard, and do well, and then be tested and find out you have a birth defect or whatever you want to call it. lol. I feel sorry for it.

    At first I was thinking, well if it was a guy pretending to be a woman, he deserved to lose the medal. Reguardless of the feeling that he was transgender. If you have the parts for that gender, THAT is your gender unless you get a sex change. Now, after re-reading it and some of the comments, I am inclined to think it is unfair. If he/she was born with female parts and truly believed he/she was female and didn`t know about the chromosomal defect, then they totally deserved the medal. Shame on them for punishing him/her for not knowing on a cellular level what his/her gender really was.

    Why does the fact that she has an extra Y chromosome cancel out the fact that she was born with female genitalia and lived her life as a female?

    so, apparently.. SHE never had a sex change from a HE to a SHE, but he*she* has too many y chromosomes, meaning SHE is a HE, but HE was born with SHE parts, so basically, she cant run in the mens, and he cant run in the womens.... sucks to be him...err her...

    i was reading that there are technically 4 genders, the hormones and chromosomes can be slightly alternating creating the 4 genders

    malemale=all man hormones/anatomy
    femalemale= male anatomy w/some female hormones
    femalefemale=all female hormones/anatomy
    malefemale=female anatomy w/some male hormones

    sometimes it just ends there, other times you get that one guy that hangs out with all girls and you think is most certainly gay.
    or that tomboy that is completely manly-- like my ex-girlfriend--that everyone thinks is a lesbian
