A blog on gender issues

The previous blog post led me naturally to look up the question of gender verification in athletics. It's a very interesting topic. I learned for instance that post-operative transsexual athletes are allowed to participate in women's competitions  as long as they have completed at least two years of hormone treatment.

I found also a very interesting blog by Lisa Schwaiger from Bilgi University, Istanbul.

Here is a screen shot of the first page
However, I am under the impression that the blog is, alas, no longer maintained.
