    That's so sad. Leave the poor girl alone.

    Are they going to start genetically testing babies before announcing if they are male or female? Goodness... I can't imagine what these people have gone through after growing up as one gender and then being 'tested' and told they're not. Sigh.

    I truly hope that she was aware of this issue before all the sports people started testing her. I can't begin to imagine how traumatic it would be to find out from a sport governing body, and then the entire world find out right along with you.

    That's great, Zoo, thanks for posting it. Why can't we, as a society, just accept gender diversity? Just accept people as people - as whoever they want to be, genderwise?

    Yeah, I would say her privacy has been violated too.
