Viloria in Ms. Magazine, with co-author Georgianne Davis

 

In “Olympics’ new Hormone Regulations: Judged by How You Look“, our E.D. and intersex activist and Professor of Sociology, Georgianne Davis, explore sporting authorities’ recently released regulations for intersex women athletes with high testosterone levels, aka hyperandrpgenism. Namely, they expound upon the issue which Viloria, Karkazis and others have previously explored, of how strong biases about gender expression, not “unfair physical advantages”, are what are really at the heart of the IOC and IAAF’s discriminatory policies.
