Indian woman track star disqualified on account of ‘nads

posted at 1:41 pm on December 18, 2006 by Allahpundit

Dude.

Santhi Soudarajan, 25, was made to take the gender test in Doha, Qatar after her victory.

The test reports sent to the Indian Olympic Association on Sunday say said she “does not possess the sexual characteristics of a woman,” The Times of India reported. The test was administered by a medical commission set up by the games’ organizers.

Admittedly, it’s a little easier for women to pass as men in India than it is elsewhere.

The gender test isn’t mandatory, by the way. They can ask you to take one if they have reason to believe you’re not, um, “qualified” for the event.

I wonder what tipped them off.

Cue Ann Coulter jokes on lefty blogs.

Great title. Cracked me up.

To Quote Steven Tyler… “Dude looks like a lady”…

D’oh! The pesky gumballs strike again.

[The official] said the test revealed more Y chromosomes than allowed.
Women have no Y chromosomes!

It rubs the curry on its skin, or else it gets the hose again…

ROFLMAO… Kid from Brooklyn. Doesn’t matter HOW one uses that quote, it’s ALWAYS funny.

How embarassing is it for a dude to have to say, “I pretended I was a woman and I got the silver medal.”

jdpaz on December 18, 2006 at 2:19 PM

No one questioned the adams apple? Hilarious as usual AP

His friends cheered from the sidelines:

Go ‘Nads Go.

He had the testicular fortitude to win!

LOL! They should have figured it out when Eddie Murphy offered “her” a ride…

JetBoy on December 18, 2006 at 2:53 PM

If the test were done to the bipartisan Party In Government, they would have passed with flying colors.

Couldn’t even get the gold???

VikingGoneWild on December 18, 2006 at 2:59 PM

He’s about as passable as the Duke Lacrosse lying accuser’s “cousin Jakki” (real name Clyde Young)…lmao. This is the same she-male that convinced Greta Van Susteren and local affiliate WRAL that the lying accuser already had her non-Duke Lacrosse baby. At least (s)he has the balls to lie on national TV.

SouthernGent on December 18, 2006 at 3:10 PM

The good news, is now she/he wont face criminal charges for showing ‘its’ ankles in public.

Is Dangerfield coaching the “Ladybugs” again?

O Allah(Pundit) please be merciful.

Balls’” cried the Queen, for if I had two, I’d be King. The King laughed, not because he had to, but because he had two.

there it is on December 18, 2006 at 3:31 PM

You know what happened, VikingGoneWild?
The other guy was faster!

Ropera on December 18, 2006 at 3:37 PM

Yes this is funny.

The small penis article is not below the belt, but right on the buckle, and funny as heck.

Theworldisnotenough on December 18, 2006 at 3:51 PM

She has balls.

Ropera on December 18, 2006 at 1:53 PM

Um, none that they personally made, anyway. How to put this delicately… I think the standard test in the Olympics used to involve a cotton swab inside the mouth to obtain genetic material. Do I need to go any further?

The Monster on December 18, 2006 at 4:12 PM

(in best Austin Powers voice…) She’s a MAN, Baby!! Yeah!

MOMinuteman on December 18, 2006 at 4:45 PM

Isn’t she the same guy who needed a pap smear in England a couple of weeks ago?

windbag on December 18, 2006 at 6:58 PM

Sorry, that’s no woman!

NEMETI IN SYRACUSE on December 18, 2006 at 8:13 PM

Reading the articles in the Indian media gives me the impression that Santhi Soudarajan may not be a surgical transexual but instead has androgen insensitivity syndrome or a related disorder. Androgens are literally what make generic fetuses into fully functioning males. Without androgens, or in the cases where the developing fetus’ body is insensitive to them, the fetus continues to develop as a female, though it is genetically male. The external genitalia looks female. The problem is not recognized until puberty, but there are undeveloped testes in their bodies, not ovaries.

You guys remember that Friends episode?
The One Where Heckles Dies

Chandler has broken up with a woman named Joan because of her large nostrils, reminding Joey of his breaking up with someone because of her large Adam’s apple. When the gang try to tell Joey that women don’t have Adam’s apples, he starts to panic, but they finally tell him it’s not true (“That was a good one. For a second there, I was like, “whoa.””)

Joey: [after talking about Chandler being picky with girls] Chandler, I understand you. I mean, this one time, I went out with this girl, she had the biggest Adam’s apple!
