Tough, brainy and quite skilfull but all that wouldn’t matter now.
 
Talented South Korean football player, Park Eun-Seon, has been asked to take a
gender test to prove she is a woman, after scoring 19 goals in 22 games
in the country’s women’s soccer league. The entire league is threatening
to
boycott all games unless Park, who is the competition’s best striker,
takes a sex test. Some of them think that Park is actually a man.

Her supporters have called for an investigation into whether her human rights is being violated. Meanwhile Park took to her
Facebook page a few days ago to express how she felt about the situation

“I have gone through the gender examination thing
several times. I did it in a World Cup, in an Olympics and in several
others and there were no problems. I’ve worked so hard to get to this
point, and I will not give up easily. I know what these people are
trying to do, and I won’t fall down.” She wrote

Secretary General of Seoul Sports Council Kim Joon-soo supported Park in a statement

“This is a serious violation of human rights that she’s suffering for
a second time. The question regarding (Park’s) gender identity shall
never be raised again. The city of Seoul will take all necessary
measures to protect our player’s human rights,” he said.

Local media reported that six of the WK-League’s seven coaches held
an informal meeting on October 19 and subsequently filed a complaint
with the Korea Football Association that if Park did not take a
gender test they would boycott next year’s competition. Park has agreed to go through another test.
