Caster Semenya Doesn’t Care If You Talk About Her Genitals. She’s Here To Race And That’s It

“I’m not ashamed of being myself. I know who I am,” says Caster Semenya, the South African track star, in her first interview since being cleared to compete after that whole intersex scandal. “There’s only one person who can judge me. There’s only God.” Not only is this chick a role model for her athletic prowess, but her ability to roll intense international criticism off her back: “I don’t see it as a big deal. I know people talk, but I don’t care. [I wasn’t hurt], not for a moment.” All of which makes me thinks those reports of Caster being on suicide watch might’ve been rubbish.

      I’m really proud of her. I don’t think I would have handeled the news so well if it were me, but I’m sure listening to her would give many people in similar situations strength to overcome.

      Must totally suck to be bullied like she was on such a large scale.
