  • HA. My husband showed this to me last night on his I phone and asked me to guess too. I said I really dont know. The legs kinda looked too muscular to be a woman, but whatever. That just proves that you can do anything you want to your body but youre still the same sex as you were when you were born. If it is a man, I hope that he gets disqualified for sure.

  • I just heard this on GMA. The tests will prove what he/she is. I think.

  • That meant the gender test — which takes several weeks — could not be completed in time.


    Ok, color me uninformed, but aren't there several ways to tell if someone is a woman that DON'T take several weeks?  Like, look for genitalia (of course a Dr. would do this as part of a physical), Adam's apple, and basic DNA tests can be done in a matter of days which should provide them with at least enough info to tell the individual's gender.  Am I missing something?  Maybe they could do an x-ray and count the ribs?

  • This is so stupid, does it have a penis or vagina? THAT should be the gender test.

  • looks like a man, but probably really is a woman. Im sure if she had on makeup and long hair, no one would think differently. Look at the williams sisters, they are buff like that too, but they have long hair, and wear makeup. Obviously this person isnt all dolled up for a big race.

  • Why do you need a second opinion? Can't you make up your mind on your own? Not understanding why you need the validation of others agreeing with you to make up your mind?
