Caster Semenya kept under wraps as she awaits IAAF's gender ruling
To understand where Caster Semenya's interminable struggle for self-identity might end, it is necessary to go back to the beginning. Alone amid the scorched savannah of South Africa's Limpopo province, where the physical horizons are endless and the personal ones less so, it becomes possible to see how far she has run already.

Editorial: Legitimising the other
The decision of the Election Commission of India to allow eunuchs and transsexuals the choice of registering under a separate sexual identity is a significant step towards mainstreaming an ostracised people who have been treated heartlessly by society. By giving them the choice of registering as “Others,” thereby dropping the requirement that they declare themselves male or female, the ECI has freed sexual identity from the trappings of obscurantism and bigotry.

Suicide: Christine Penner’s and Others
I’ve always had mixed feelings about the Day of Remembrance. On one hand it seems important to remember those who were victims of often horrendous violence and yet it often seems that in death these victims become tools to be used for political gain. Especially true when so many were sex workers living outside middle class support systems.
But then again over the years I have lost more friends to suicide than to violence. So many that I often wonder if we shouldn’t have a Day of Rememberance for those who kill themselves.

Am I intersexed? Who cares!
Did you get a genetic test to see if you're intersex?
I get the question once every few months, usually from a well-meaning and honestly curious person. It's an interesting question, as well as a bit of a hot-button issue within the transgender community. I mean, who wouldn't want to know if there was a genetic reason for their transgender feelings, right? Being intersexed is no big deal, after all, and is just another part of the tapestry we call gender. Getting tested wouldn't do anything to affect my status as a woman.
