Reuters Related News Sex tests for athletes essentialise sexual differences result in discrimination Yet again a female athlete has been barred from competing As per news reports the Sports Authority of India (SAI) inferred that she is not as female as female athletes ought to be She suffers from hyperandrogenism: her testosterone levels are equivalent to males’ or higher than females’ thus giving her an “unfair advantage” over her female competitors While calling out a female athlete must be a déjà vu moment for the SAI one hopes this is not a replay of the Santhi Soundarajan episode In 2006 Santhi an Asian Games-winning athlete was stripped of her medal after tests revealed she was not quite female She survived a suicide attempt only to work as a labourer at a brick kiln In Santhi’s case it was the presence of a Y chromosome Now it is the athlete’s high testosterone level that turned the tide against her In its defence the SAI simply points to policies of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) However given the history of debacles in the sex determination of athletes (remember Caster Semenya) who is fully female or male To make contests “fair” sex-segregated sports require that only “real” females contest in say female events not males posing as female Starting from the late-1960s sex tests became mandatory for all female athletes The IAAF made female athletes parade nude in the presence of physicians who examined their genitalia Those who passed this test were authorised female and handed the “Certificate of Femininity” Facing flak for these humiliating and imprecise “tests” the IAAF and IOC started chromosomal testing in 1967 This search for the Y chromosome in females was projected as an “objective” verification of sexual identity As a result many were disqualified from sports and publicly shamed including the Spanish hurdler Maria Jose Martinez-Patio Like other sportswomen Maria paid a heavy price till she proved that her chromosomal condition did not give her more testosterone or “unfair advantage” By the time Maria was reinstated her sporting career had nearly reached the finishing line Laboratory tests have since confirmed that the XX and XY distinction can be nebulous making many women and men fail such tests By the late-1990s the IAAF and IOC ended mandatory sex tests and moved on to “better” techniques Androgens especially testosterone became the means towards definitive truth about sexual identity It was claimed that testing for hyperandrogenism would root out the hormonally male and flag the use of performance-enhancing drugs Testosterone was viewed as a more accurate “sex testing” benchmark; it did not comment on the sex of an individual but merely the hormonal composition However scientists have sharply disagreed about the extent to which testosterone dictates athletic performance or sexual identity To cite one example in a paper in the American Journal of Bioethics Katrina Karkazis from the Stanford Centre for Biomedical Ethics and her co-authors have argued that sex cannot be assumed to be a mutually exclusive simplistic polarity There are at least six markers of sex — chromosomes gonads hormones secondary sex characteristics external genitalia and internal genitalia None of these is binary or decisive Each has variations both within an individual and among “males” and “females” High or low testosterone depends upon a range of intertwined factors material biological and psychological Given these variations how can there be a level playing field Scientific research shows that individuals respond differently to the same level of testosterone Besides if high testosterone is naturally occurring like other biological traits how is it unfair Are long limbs or sharp eyesight unfair advantages too Another disturbing aspect of these androgen tests: the criteria used by the SAI to single out athletes for testing Often it is athletes who appear unfeminine/ less feminine External traits such as body hair lack of breasts deep voice or gender non-conforming behaviour are flimsy grounds if not homophobic What about intersex or non-cis athletes It sounds anachronistic to even say that sex and gender are neither always congruous nor meant to be Far from serving their purpose sex tests have merely reinscribed popular and flawed understandings of sexual identity Instead of “fairness” they have resulted in discrimination essentialising sexual differences Instead of weeding out male athletes they have weeded out women with non-normative sexual traits Instead of embracing the naturally occurring sexual variations these tests flag female athletes are stigmatised sometimes bringing their personal lives and careers to naught Instead of demanding female athletes undergo treatments to lower their testosterone can we not accept that there are multiple not two sexual identities and no perfect “male” or “female” Why should athletes pay the price of our oversimplified and erroneous understanding of sex The writer is a Fox International Fellow at Yale University and a doctoral candidate at JNU Delhi

and others seeking quashing of a money laundering case registered against them by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) Themove comes as a major setback to the Congress leader his wife and son "The petitions are devoid of substance consequentially the same are dismissed" PTI quoted Justice RK Gauba as saying The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had earlier summoned 83-year-old Singh his wife Pratibha Singh and son Vikramaditya Singh for questioning in this regard Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh News18 The ED in September 2015 had lodged the case against the chief minister and others under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) after taking cognisance of a criminal complaint filed by the CBI The CBI had filed a charge sheet on 31 March hours after the high court refused to quash the FIR lodged against Singh and his wife in the disproportionate assets case The high court which had rubbished the chief minister’s claim that the FIR was the result of a "political vendetta" had paved the way for criminal proceedings which were stalled due to an order passed on 1 October 2015 by the Himachal Pradesh High Court restraining the CBI from arresting interrogating and filing the charge sheet against the accused The ED had earlier termed as "premature" Singh’s plea for quashing of the money laundering case proceedings It had said the plea seeking a stay on the proceedings was "not maintainable" as the inquiry into the matter was at a preliminary stage The agency is probing allegations against Singh and his family members of having amassed wealth of Rs 61 crore disproportionate to his known sources of income between 2009 and 2011 when he was the Union minister of steel It has also attached assets worth about Rs 14 crore in this case under the PMLA In July 2016 LIC agent Anand Chauhan was arrested by the ED under provisions of the PMLA as he was allegedly not cooperating with the investigating
