The controversy surrounding South Africa's new female 800 metre world champion, Caster Semenya, has created a hugely important space in which we can publicly talk about gender and gender presentation in our post-apartheid nation. And if there is one conclusive finding with which we can walk away from this episode, it is that gender and how we present our bodies is extremely important.
