People shouldn't make fun of her. It's not her fault to be born like this.
I hope she keeps on playing!
I hope she sticks around.
How come it's known that she was born a hermaphrodite anyway ?
Some people will say anything to gain an advantage and those players who made her feel bad should be ashamed of themselves.
