JOHANNESBURG. Teazers boss Lolly Jackson says he is prepared to put an end to the spiraling speculation surrounding his gender by submitting himself to the same battery of tests experienced by 800m runner, Caster Semenya.
Speculation about Jackson's gender started several months ago when he appeared in a series of photographs, published on the internet, which showed distinct hints of what, at the time, were thought to be man-boobs.
Shortly thereafter several former strippers spoke out suggesting Jackson was 'a ****' and speculation reached fever-pitch.
Commenting on the situation psychologist and gender expert Oedipus Wolff said any man who felt it necessary to own a fleet of luxury vehicles and sports cars while at the same time constantly surrounding himself with uber-hot Ukrainian chicks was probably compensating for something.
But Wolff said they wouldn't be able to tell for certain until Jackson dropped his pants. "Let's just say that if you hear us laughing behind the examination curtain, then you'll know he’s failed at the first hurdle."
Wolff said no matter what, Jackson should not be embarrassed by the outcome of the tests.
"They pump oestrogen through the air-conditioning at those strip clubs to make the dancers more womanly," he said. "It's bound to have had an effect on Lolly."
Wolff added that any man who got dry-humped sixteen times a day for ten years was either a man with testicles like melons, in which case gender identification would be easy, or he wasn't really a man at all.
Meanwhile a spokesperson for Teazers, Ophelia Dickie called on the public to respect Jackson's privacy. "This is a difficult time for Lolly," she said, "and we are determined to stand by him."
She said it didn't matter if the tests showed him to be a Lolly for sucking or a Lolly for licking. "Either way we can guarantee that he won't appear on any billboards or straddling a pole in one of his clubs.
"That would just be exploitation," she said.
