Interesting post. - Why can’t you post a link? Is it because you are new here?
This is interesting to me; because, most of my higher educational degrees are in zoology and human anatomy (but from some time ago).
However, I haven’t been following this issue and the use of the word “intesex” is new to me; but, appears to have originated in Germany in 1915.
With regard to this story, it looks like I might need to understand the difference between the use of “intersex” and the use of “hermaphrodite” (they appear to be synonyms?), since there are reports (see the link within the reproduced paragraph of the article linked below) that Ms. Semenya “has no womb or ovaries and that she also has internal testes”. If this is true, then I would think that Ms. Semenya might well have an athletic advantage over women with “normal” reproductive systems.
So, perhaps, the issue here is how much privacy, regarding an individual’s sexual anatomy, is warranted to individuals who desire to compete in various levels of athletic competition? This may sound crass; but, we do understand that it’s a fact that the average normal male definitely has a physiological advantage over the average normal female when it comes to athletic competition.

This is an incredibly complex issue, and one of the reasons for that complexity is that the IAAF has two categories in which athletes can compete: male and female. The problem is, human biology doesn’t always neatly divide into male or female. Some people — intersex people — have traits of both sexes. Semenya isn’t male, but in addition to Y chromosomes, she isbelieved to have internal testes and lack a womb or ovaries — characteristics we don’t traditionally associate with females. However, you’d likely never know that from reading the coverage in the mainstream press on Wednesday.
