Acton argues that her XY chromosomes and internal testes serve as proof of her being a male.

He added Semenya should return all of her prize money and titles.

Acton urged South Africans to “wake the f*** up” and to rather support real female athletes.

The Citizen reported that Acton removed the post within a few hours of posting it.
