If a transgender female athlete had hormone levels within the female physiologic range, had gender reassignment surgery, and whose license and birth certificate indicated that she was female, how would she be identified as transgender?

I think they should have their own class. Men are naturally built different than women and no amount of surgery or meds will change the physical strength of someone like that. If they want to be in the sports, ie MMA they should not be fighting non trans women. There are enough of them to start their own weight classes and leagues
Do you mean separated like Special Olympics are? I can see this as being fair.
I see it as fair too but I also see people having a problem with that too. Lol

Yeah....they need their own competitive class. A person can package themself all day long as female, but physically that person is a male. I believe that is the case even with hormone treatments.

This has gotten pretty silly. There are boys simply claiming they are girls and being able to compete in girls sports and winning scholarships and state titles. Now they are fighting women in MMA. No amount of surgery or drugs can change the fact that they are by nature a man, Its time to except the fact that it has always been and always will be a mental illness. If that is the life they want to live fine let them but why try to make every one else think its normal.

Whats next are we suppose to go along with schizophrenics and pretend that the voices in their heads are real or agree with the paranoid ,that someones out to get them or worse agree with the anorexic that their fat?
