Do it for all- or none
Gender means more than what is on the outside. I understand that a TG person, raised or/and competeing as a woman/man MAY have an advantage, depending on the sport.

Anyone?

Plus I think it is BS about how they judge her looks.

I think it's a valid criticism. Men are biologically stronger and faster than women. They build muscle much more quickly and easily then women do. So if there is question about gender, then I think the athlete should prove it. It's just a matter of a simple DNA test.

I wouldn't necessarily trust the structure of the genitalia in determining gender, though. There have been documented cases of ambiguous genitalia where it is difficult to determine gender based on looks alone.
