Being required to take a gender test because they don't believe the athlete is a woman.

This has happened a couple times before.  Some people are born with both parts, I remember a case of a soccer player several years ago that played as a woman for years though he later joined the mens leagues as he felt he was more of a man and ended up having corrective surgery to end the debate.

So how do we get one of these tests set up?  I question Geo's statements that he is a man, and I think gender testing should be in order.

She/he must be included under the "lumbarjack" build that Mattaleo mentioned in his boot fitting thread.  She/he should try on boots.. not buy online.

I don't think there's a lot of flannel-rocking going on in south africa.  She would be more of a cousin of the north american lumberjack.

Here is the athlete in question.  I think there is probably something hormonal wrong and likely has a little bit of both.  Particularly given the fact that they stated the test results could take weeks.  If it was more obvious, they could just do the Crocadile Dundee test

its really weird, i keep looking at this and I cant decide... there is something femenine about this athlete, but at the same time............ SO much man. lol

tough call. Wonder what tests theyre running. It seems to be complicated. and yea how embarassing is that? having your gender questioned and tested haha.

Yeah, often times these athletes have 3 X and/or Y chromosomes, where normal humans have XX for girl or XY for male. XXY is probably what she/he has. More testosterone basically,

It sounds as if they may not even be able to definitively conclude whether or not she is female or male.
