There's definitely no easy answer on this. There's definitely some biological males that would fit among the body proportions and strengths of average females. There's also women who could easily appear physically the same as an average male. Among those it would seem much more fair in competition. However we're not seeing those stories we're seeing above average males presenting as female and competing, and no that isn't fair. So maybe keep a split in sports but rather than straight up male vs female base it on actual physical characteristics. No easy way to define the line though. Weight classes could work in some sports, but I don't wanna miss tiny running backs weaving through defenses just because they didn't meet a guideline either. So perhaps keep the male and female (biologically) sports separate and simply don't allow them to compete in either side unless they create their own. We all understand that with some physical disabilities there are often limitations on what someone can do and if they can do so the activity may be heavily modified. So as sad as it would be for a trans person not to be able to participate this is simply a limitation of their condition.
