    Who says they can't? Certainly not the IOC.

    Intersex people like Semenya should be (and now is) allowed to compete. She was born with naturally higher testosterone and no ovaries. Transsexuals, people who have sex changes, must take hormones for life. Hormones=doping. It's one thing if you're just born lucky like Semenya, it's another thing entirely if you take pills for it, even if you have a legitimate medical reason. They don't let athletes take ADHD or hundreds of other stimulants either.

    There DNA determines physical ability. Most males of the same size can outperform females due to differences in bone and muscle development.

    They can't compete in same gender events as DNA tests will reveal they are either male or female.

    Because they don't allow them to use the bathrooms they want.

    You have to be male or female, not feel like one.
