"Canadian commentators fail to cool it with Johnny Weir jokes"
"The pair called Weir "a bad example" and suggested he go through gender testing, like the runner Caster Semenya. After all, in no way is the latter a touchy subject. "
Obviously don't know how true any of this is since I didn't watch RDS...but if it is...its very sad.
Did anyone here watch RDS coverage? Did they really make those comments?
Edited to add...
Caster Semenya is a South African runner who won a world gold last year and AFTER her victory people suggested that she may actually be a man because of her strong masculine appearance.
