I agree with the above.
"She" has a male body structure, having grown up as a male. Technically he is still a he; his chromosomes are still XY, no matter how many hormones
are taken, and his body structure will remain an adult males.
Having him fight women whose body structure is different is going to provide an intrinsic advantage when it comes to any application that demands
physical strength, especially in close quarters, like fighting someone in a manner where physical strength is a major advantage (hand to hand combat
with tons of rules), and where any maneuver that may say disable your opponent with a quick precise strike that does not require so much strength is
disallowed (which could be used by smaller framed people to much greater effect (think Bruce Lee, who was only 130 pounds and lightning fast)), gives
this person an unfair advantage.
you could take a pill that would convert a Y into an X, or an X into a Y, and have your body reconfigure itself to match, there would be no
problem. IF you could say, do a brain transplant... there would be no problem. But technology is not at that point, or anywhere close.
This is simply a case of a man fighting women with rules that are to the benefit of those with larger physiques, which are much more common and
pronounced in men.
The playing field is not level.
