Medaillenregen für Team LGBTI

"Being intersex, having a higher-than-normal testosterone level, doesn't give anyone a golden ticket to Olympic gold. Just like Usain Bolt's long legs and Michael Phelps' long arms, any athlete can have a strong advantage over her competitors, but it takes years of hard work and determination to get to the pantheon of their sport.
Regardless of what you believe about Semenya's chromosomes, testosterone or gender, she is where she is because of hard work and determination.
So next time you get all upset about an intersex athlete doing well, or a transgender athlete who might have some semblance, of advantage over some of her competitors, remember Dutee Chand and stop talking out of your depth."
