The International Olympic Committee is considering new rules that would ban women with hyperandrogenism (naturally high testosterone levels) from competing in the games. Supporters admit it's not a perfect policy, but say something has to be done to prevent "real" women from competing against women who "play like men." Those quotations are ours but they're not sarcastic: the rules will likely be implemented because officials are worried that it's unfair for women to compete against those with unfair physical advantages. Since most people agree that sex-segregated sports are necessary for that reason, aren't some sort of guidelines in order?
