Australian coach Nic Bideau, who has been around the international circuit for 20 years, said often the African nations produce these people who are born with a mixture of chromosomes and display both male and female characteristics.Gender question about runner | The Daily Telegraph. Oh, it's the Africans producing intersexed bodies, not ""civilized" countries like Australia or America? Such a ridiculous claim can only be made because of the Victorian racial science that produced both Empire and Sports. According to the Victorian scientists, highly influenced by Darwinian theory, the most advanced cultures were those with the most extreme sex differentiation. Who was more sex differentiated than the Victorian middle class? The "ladies" stayed home and fainted; the men shot lions in Africa and were aggressive in the market. Ah, but sadly, as industrialization swept all the men into desk jobs, a genuine fear arose that the men were being feminized by modern culture. A movement developed to introduce sports into schools to butch up the bourgeois boys. This movement, known as Muscular Christianity, was a favorite of Teddy Roosevelt's and was what brought the YMCA's to every town in America. After all, if bourgeois boys only knew the soft hands and softer stomachs of desk jobs, they would be like women and the white middle class would lose their status as the most evolved group among humans. They would become like other groups without extreme gender differentiation: the working class, homosexuals, the Irish, and, of course, Africans. So here is poor, young, Semenya running really fast, but everyone's insisting she's not really a girl since you know, those "Africans" produce bodies that are not sufficiently gender differentiated. Because they're not as evolved as Australians and Americans, where men are men, and women are women. In "civilized" countries, babies born outside the binary are surgically altered, hormonally treated, and forced to abide by iron law of sex and sports: play by the rules of gender or get thrown out of the game.
