Seriously, if you have to ask, then you should probably just keep your mouth shut. Because nothing good is going to come of asking.

The question? Whether or not 18-year-old South African runner Caster Semenya, who won the 800-meter race at the World Athletics Championship in Berlin, is a chick or a dude.

Imagine crossing the finish line to thunderous applause, accolades, etc. Job well done after pouring so much effort into this race. And then, some insensitive prick says, wait, are you actually a girl?

NPR reports:
"Suspicions fueled by Semenya's appearance and athletic performance have
dogged her for years. A principal at a school she attended told the Star
of South Africa, "Some schools, suspecting that she was not a girl,
even demanded that her status be checked. But each time they returned
from the toilet, she would be cleared and the competition would resume."
