Stop categorizing people as male or female, just as hormone levels in a hierarchy like the boxing system. Then you don't have any problem and anyone can be any sex or gender they want to be. They just compete in the tier that matches their hormone level and there you go.

I think one day we all end up with unisex sports and a much less binary society anyway.


That’s just re-categorizing people.


I was half kidding... but I do think all this hormone testing/PED testing stuff is pretty ridiculous. We, as a society, regulate human behavior excessively and arbitrarily.

Agree. Also, this is a real outlier of a case, and I don’t think we need to necessarily turn things upside down for an exception. As harsh as that might seem.
