      Great! Except for the last part– the trans in sports thing. That is more complicated. Especially if they have gone through puberty already.

      @Fitz: If they haven’t gone through puberty, their musculosketal structure isn’t sex-differentiated yet, so there shouldn’t be any issue at all. After puberty, I would say there is a legitimate debate, but it would revolve around skeletal structure and the interplay of muscles and skeleton, because musculature is hormone-dependent and after a year or two of female hormones there is no difference in pure muscle strength between trans and cis women.
