The controversy is entirely way to complex. Fascinating but complex.
Yet, I am struck with an interesting rhetorical move by another South African athlete, who, according to The New York Times, stated:
“The question I ask is if this were a European person, would these questions be raised?” said Ruben Ramolefi, a track athlete for South Africa. “It seems there’s hypocrisy behind it.”
Since this is incredibly complex, I ask that Ramolefi not mention another loaded, socially-constructed term into the controversy until someone can figure out the gender issue.
