Following her victory in the 800m South African runner, Caster Semenya is being administered a gender test. The only problem is that if she turns out to be a man, she is automatically disqualified (of course).
It's not often that situations like this happen, so in honour of the Caster Semenya predicament, here is a collection of 11 transgendered innovations, from product branding to corporate takeovers.
Implications - From gender swap suits to transgendered cosmetics, the transgender world is slowly becoming more integrated into society.
