Star Female Athlete Finds Out She’s a Man


A female athlete who won dozens of medals has discovered that she was in fact a man all along, leaving her no choice but to return her many awards.

Xiao Nan of Chengdu won more than 40 medals after graduating from high school. Her dominating performances brought her great acclaim and a free university education.

However, a visit to a local hospital proved what Xiao had suspected all along: the tests showed that Xiao possessed male chromosomes, confirming suspicions that she was really a he.

Xiao has since retired from competing and is now living as a man.


“Being a champion was never a happy thing to me. Standing on the podium made me feel guilty, and I always thought the real champion should have been the one standing next to me.”

Xiao has begun a course of sex change surgery at Sichuan Xichan Plastic Surgery Hospital which will take nine months. At the end of which, Xiao will lose all vestiges of ever having been a woman.

Xiao couldn’t be happier at the prospect. “The first thing I want to do after the surgery is to go swimming, wearing only boxer shorts.”

    What a way to find out you're really a male.

    Sadly, there are those who end up like this. It is atypical and their bodies are abnormal in one way or another -- this does not mean they are morally inferior nor does it give any reason to treat them as anything but the human being they are.

    Must be a shock to find out your actually the opposite gender of what you think you are.

    I wonder if he was traumatized by his gender confusion... and why he decided to become what his genes said he is.

    Uh, so was he an XY or an XXY? I recall some Olympic athlete discovering through the tests they took that she was an XXY, but it was determined she had gotten no benefits at all from the Y bit so they let her keep all her wins.

    This reminds me of something I'd been thinking some time ago:
    What defines the gender of a person?

    Is it what you think about yourself?
    There are people who go through surgery because they felt they were a "man trapped in a woman's body", or something like that.

    Is it what people around you says?
    I remembered a Brazilian soap opera where there was a young trap who didn't know he was actually a boy because his mother always told him he was a girl and he was raised as one.

    Is it genitals? Or chromosomes?
    There are people who (as in this article) look like women (with all of their primary and secondary sexual characteristics in place), but genetically they are male. And men with XX chromosomes also exist.

    (There are also hermaphrodites, but that's another story.)

    So, which is it?

    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned that she's an athlete in Communist China. In the 1970's and 80's East Germany famously slipped massive doses of male hormones to female athletes without their knowledge and against the will, to great competitive success. Until it started to fuck the girls up. They grew penises. They became attracted to women. If you test them today, medically speaking, they are men.

    But I'm sure the Chinese government would never be party to cheating at sports.

    And the States, who doesn't use the Clear Drugs, which they invented, are perfect? Yes, I guess all the medals the States won with Clear Drugs are legal as well. And trust me, the States also uses a lot of male hormone injections. So I don't see your point other than you being brianwashed by the Western porpaganda that what ever Chinese do, it's bad as they mainly post negative news (especially this site)

    He probably suspected of being a man for his look, lack of real breasts even if small, and maybe even voice, although he didn't have the main-male part.

    He did the right thing though.

    I wonder how you can "know" you're a man on the inside. I mean, obviously you can be attracted to women, enjoy cars and video games more than shopping, but I know many girls like that.

    well tenicly that touches on Nature Vs Nuture area and most people even when nutured have a tendency to know there real gender more than what they grew up with. think of it like how you see your self as a man/woman in a mirror and you know something just dosnt fit its prorply like that, on a side not on how all Humans are born femail and grow with the Y/X fighting out to see what will take more in a genetic build this means for the first few months of pregency you are tenicly femail. but after the X/Y balence is pushed off then one takes over some times thou this dosnt work as should and they stay equil or only just to one side this is what the abnormality is. or along thouse lines youd have to look in to it more

    i concur. i knew this boy in school who everyone just thought he was a "little" weird, but as a 8yr old kid i picked up that he was really a girl. nobody believed me. anyway, when we started highschool, he started wearing womens clothes, and changed his name to kylie, and people just thought he was "very" weird, but still didn't see him as a girl. so he went to a doctor and started a course of hormone treatments and spent a few years of his life as a transexual. she was the perfect trap, looked alot like milla jovavich. i kinda lost touch with her after graduation, but i kinda know what path she took. point is, she must have subconsciously known all those years, even with his upbringing and all that, it was still there, buried in her head, just waiting to become who she really is.

    I'd figure it's about the same as the sense that one likes x gender, or such.

    It might be something like "knowing" you have a hand there hovering over the keyboard, even if you close your eyes and don't touch anything (although, technically, that's kinetics, but the same point stands!), something subtle or sublime like that.

    """"""""""""""""""My last boss used to work for Apple

    He loved it. The only reason he quit was that his wife took a position in Boston and there was no comparable position for him at Apple over here. So he took another position, reluctantly.

    He said it was the best job he’d ever had.

    I’ve never worked for Apple, so … \*shrug\* that’s all you get."""""""""""""""""""""""""

    The man follows the woman now. When she changes job it is he who must quit his job and follow her. His life is merely a supplement to hers. He is not truly a person; he is an accessory to the woman aswell as an indentured servant to her and her children (which may or may not be from him: women love to commit adultry against their slaves).

    Why is this allowed to happen? Why do men allow this to happen?

    It is because of schooling and policing.
    Men are taught obedience to women in school: they must respect their female classmates, obey the female teacher, and not hit back when assaulted or taunted by female students. Men are forced to obey women in life: his wife may have him arrested at any time and can steal his children and posessions from him via divorce at any time. His wife can (and many do) have him evicted from his own house at her whim . His female coworkers may have him arrested, written up, or fired at any time. Men are hates in America and the west. Men are slaves to women in America and the west. Men act accordingly: their life can be destroyed by any woman at anytime so they must appease all women all the time to survive.

    Why do men not fight this and destroy their enemies (those who believe in, promote, and enforce women’s rights)?

    It is because men do not believe in the afterlife anylonger and they know that there is no escape in the anti-man police state that is America and the west. If a man were to fight against women’s rights in a real (physical) sence he would surely be hunted down and killed or imprisoned forever: he would lose his life. Men no longer believe in a wonderful afterlife so none are willing to throw away this life to destroy their enemies because they know (or believe (depending on your opinion)) that it is the only one they have. Men’s religions have been destroyed and that has destroyed Men’s will to fight to the extent that that will no longer exists (Remeber: talking is not fighting. Fighting is killing and destroying (those who are pro-women’s rights and against Men’s Liberty).)

    a) no woman will ever marry you
    b) no boss will ever employ you
    c) god hates you and gave you shit for brains

    This is just stupid. The guy in this has lived as a girl all his life, and just because of 'his' genetic code they are telling him that he has to return all of his medals that he won in girls sports?

    I don't think so. This isn't a case where he could justifiably KNOW that this was the case, especially since his own freaking parents didn't know and had been raising him as a girl.

    Are we now going to require testing of people to make sure that the 'female' is actually a female? DNA testing just because something like this might happen?

    I half agree with you; the genetic code part of it is unnecessary and in cases like these, is 'as suspected' as often as not.

    But I don't know the social climate for things like this in China, or of Xiao himself; as happy as he seems about this, this testing was probably the self-/social-justification he needed.

    superior? since when are men superior to women. i honestly have trouble thinking of anything i as a male can do that a female cannot. when i factor my 115kg, 6'2" frame into it, sure, i'm bigger, therefore stronger than most people, but i have a friend the same size and weight as me who is female and can match me in lifting weights and physical endurance any day of the week. mental endurance and pain threshold on the other hand is something women excel at far greater than any man i have ever met. if anything, women are superior to men in basically every regard, from athletics to the everyday life.

    You're quite a bit off.

    Go compare world-records in weight-lifting, running, or several other sports to see some of the differences.

    The dual male/female system in athletics wasn't made up on a whim, Robocop.

    Well, you can argue that, since he is geneticaly male, then he is superior to females in such sporting activitys, due to the extra muscle tone.
    Just to say he doesn't have a penis, doesn't mean he isn't the same as males on a metabolic level, because those male hormones really help muscle development.
    This is the very reason males and females do not compete in the same events, because it would be unfair.

    Although a lot of woman could probably match a lot of male sports persons, or even out perform.

    That only makes sense, otherwise how could he (and his parents) reasonably assume from birth that he was a woman?

    I'm guessing there might be partially developed testes inside his body, or something along those lines.

    They are people out there who are born without a arm, a leg or any others part of his/her body. That's happen during the pregnancy, their body doesn't form at 100% and when they are born, a part of them is not there. So in this case, that would mean that his "lil bro" wasn't formed when he was born. I know someone who is born without her left arm, and another one who is born with only 1 eye.

    Biologicaly all fetus's are female untill a few weeks in, when then, the Y chromosome acts as a 'switch' which signals the release of testosterone and similar hormones which triger the growth of the penis and testes.
    So really, men only have a modified version of what women have.

    Saying this, it's not uncomon for chromosomes to break, especialy during miosis, infact, only a very small % of all sperm produced is even fit for reproduction.

    You also have factors such as recycled water, which contains a large amount of oestrogen, which doesn't get filtered from the urine.

    So I think it's not a case of him being born wrong, but a case of him actualy being defective.

    There was a case in the.. one of the lesser populated areas of south america in.. '67? I think it was -- a group of 11 females, lived their lives as females, hit puberty at he age of 12, and a penis and testes just.. dropped out.

    They are now men.

    It could be one of those cases where the person is born as both male and female. I watched a documentary on it once, but the parents should have found out at the birth. It might not be one of those cases as usually its dangerous to leave testes inside the body if I remember correctly.
    Oh well. I'm happy for her. She's happy now.
