    I can't remember who I was thinking of now. But there was someone who by natural chance just had an extraordinarily high level of testosterone in his blood.

    I think that was Lance Armstrong 1.0. Until one of his competitors and a sports medicine guys ratted him out, and we got Lance Armstrong 2.0.

    In an interview with Oprah Winfrey on January 13, 2013 (broadcast later in two parts), Armstrong admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs throughout much of his career, including all seven Tour wins. During the interview, he stated that his "mythic, perfect story" was "one big lie", and attributed his denials to being "a guy who expected to get whatever he wanted, and to control every outcome." The AP and other media reported that Armstrong had made an apology to the Livestrong staff before his interview with Winfrey. He said that while doping, he neither felt that it was wrong nor felt bad about what he was doing. He also insisted he was clean during the two comeback years of 2009 and 2010, after UCI had implemented its biological passport program that included stricter whereabouts rules and the monitoring of blood profiles.

    When did I say anything about "exceptions"? It's not a matter of "exceptions" because the question is what they count as for the purpose of sports. Is the number of true intersex (by which I mean people for which it's a legitimate question how they count, not someone who's clearly primarily male or female with some characteristics of the other) low? Yes, but they still exist, and if you just want to say "it should be your birth sex" you end up with the question of those whose birth sex isn't clear, so what is the standard for which to judge them? On a case by case basis?

    If you are trying to fit in "intersex" into sports, then you are indeed asking for an exception. There is no need for sports to accommodate every variation of human being. If there are enough of a group, then they can band together and start their own sports league. Like "special olympics" is for physically and mentally disabled people. "Women's leagues" is for women. If there are enough intersex people, they can start their own league. If not, then tough cookies. Like I said, they don't accommodate fat people in normal sports leagues. Or physically disabled, etc. If they want to play sports, they need to start their own league, or just not play sports. Not everyone is OWED accommodation in every area of life.

    Hurdler born male but competing as female easily takes NCAA women's national championship

    A college hurdler who was born male but has been competing as a female just became an NCAA women's national champion.

    CeCe Telfer of Franklin Pierce University won the 400-meter hurdles Saturday night by more than a second with a personal collegiate-best time of 57.53 seconds and also was named to the All-America First Team in the 100-meter hurdles.

    Man Identifying As 6-Year-Old Crushes Game-Winning Homer In Tee-Ball Championship

    AUBURN, CA—Local 36-year-old man Nate Ripley, who identifies as a six-year-old, “absolutely crushed” a game-winning homer at a local tee-ball game and won the championship for his team Monday evening, reports confirmed.

    Ripley reportedly walked up to the plate in the bottom of the 6th, pointed his bat toward the left-field wall looming 130 feet in the distance, and let her rip, sending the ball rocketing over the fence and into a parking lot as the fans cheered and his coach yelled out, “Attaboy, Nate! Good job, bud!”

    His team, the Lil’ Padres, attempted to hoist him up on their shoulders in celebration of their great victory over the favored Tiny Tigers, but were unable to pick up the large 230-pound man.

    Ripley’s feat comes at the end of a momentous tee-ball season, in which the self-identified six-year-old absolutely shattered every record set prior to that point. With a 1.000 batting average, 52 home runs, and an incredible showing at first base, second base, shortstop, third base, and pitcher, the man is being called an inspiration to other six-year-olds everywhere.

    “I’m just proud to be here with my team. It’s all for the love of the game,” an emotional Ripley told reporters while enjoying an orange slice and juice box after the championship. “I couldn’t have done it without my team.”

    Almost all people are, in fact, either male of female, and thus they should play in the appropriate league. To this day, there is nothing that can actually change what you are in that regard. It's all superficial.

    As for the .001% (hyperbolic number, not an actual value) that have both genetalia or some sort of mixed DNA - as you say, they can form their own league because from a sports perspective, they are 'neither'.

    This whole thing is so stupid ... It's like the little babies seized control. I wonder if and when the adults with some sort of grip on reality will reassert themselves.

    Normally when a child wants to pretend they are something they are not, one can count on reality to show itself eventually. But when the powers that be demand all around them pretend along with them or go to jail, we've left freedom behind and walked full press into Arkham.

    Progressive Mom Proudly Declares Son To Be Transgender After He Walks Through Barbie Aisle

    PORTLAND, OR—Young mother Olivia McKinley declared her three-year-old son Kale to be transgendered after he took a brief walk through the Barbie aisle while in the toy section at Target on Monday. She could be heard shrieking, "My son is trans! I accept you, my beautiful, brave trans girl. I do not judge you! I love you just the way you are!" Her mouth was just inches from the boy's face as she embraced him tightly, though he tried to squirm free.

    A man who had overheard the screams walked by and asked, "Is everything OK?"

    McKinley shoved the man back and shouted, "Back off! Don't you dare judge my brave trans daughter! How dare-h-H-HOW dare you!" The man left the store shocked and confused.

    When McKinley returned to her son he had walked over to the Avengers toys and had taken down a Captain America figure. "NOOO! NO! They got to you! Don't let them in! Don't let their binary poison break your little mind! Be yourself, Kale, be yourself!!" Kale began to cry as the agitated mother ripped the action figure from his hands and replaced it with astronaut Barbie. "Imagine if you became a woman... you could become the first woman on Mars! Or an MMA fighter! Or the first man to get an abortion!"

    When last seen, McKinley was overheard calling her son "Kayla" and forcing him to try on a dress while shouting, "It's OK! I accept you! Stop scratching me!"

    No, you're thinking of the right athlete. The "genetic freak" excuse was often used to explain why a doped up Armstrong was so dominant in cycling.
