Two items of news have made me laugh out loud today. Firstly, Gordon Ramsay had a near death experience, which I am sure was terrifying, and I am glad he survived. That is not the funny bit. At the bottom of the news report I read was, " and he got bitten by a Puffin." I'm sorry, I just can't stop laughing at that.
Secondly the Chinese have announced that they have set up a special lab to sex test athletes of suspect gender. We can all think of past competitors of dubious genetic origins and I can see where this has come from. But they have announced that they will test athletes of a suspect gender firstly on appearance. Now if it was me pretending to be a woman to win an olympic medal I'd have the electrolysis, and the implants, and the hormones, and the makeup and the hair and the clothes.... and I'd look a lot more like a woman than I do on a bad morning now.
Following this to its logical conclusion means that the athletes of suspect gender are probably going to be "unfeminine" women....Just how insulted would you be, "Um excuse me um, madam? um could we like you know, well do a genetic test to be sure you are a female?"
