Caster Semenya Gets A Girly Makeover To Help “Prove” She’s A Woman
Caster Semenya, the runner who was forced to undergo sex-determination testing, appears on the cover of South African magazine You, with her hair down and her makeup done (including dark burgundy nail polish) and wearing a wardrobe that includes a silver sequined top with black leggings and a black dress accessorized with a necklace and piles of gold bangles.
Semenya does look more feminine in the You photos than she did in the other photos we’ve seen of her in her running attire, but why the heck does someone have to be styled in girly clothes to be accepted as a woman? The results of the sex-determination test aren’t in yet, but perhaps Semenya and her PR team are hoping they can convince the world she’s not a man by wearing a dress and lipstick. We, however, know plenty of guys who wear women’s clothes better than we do. [You via Broadsheet]
