    OK, since I don't follow all the politically correct terms, replace "trans-gender lobby" with whatever you like as the politically correct term, and the statement otherwise remains the same.

    There is no such thing as the "politically correct term" for what you described, because you did not describe a single entity. You are conflating two different groups that have some overlapping membership.

    Here is an example of a transgender runner who thinks Semenya has an unfair edge.

    Its interesting that whichever entity it is says that the lowered testosterone levels are proof that she has no advantage in sports. Yet in the cases of Semenya and Dutee Chand some other entity says that elevated testosterone does not confer them an advantage, which seems contradictory. Taking that further it would seem that testosterone levels have no bearing at all on sports performance, and therefore, it (and its anabolic analogues) should be removed WADA's banned list. These entities can't all have their arguments every way they want it in each situation.

    A woman is a woman
    A transgender will never be a woman'
    A transitioned male to female will never be a woman
    A hermaphrodite will never be a woman
    An androgynous person will never be a woman

    ...and this sort of utter nonsense makes the news.

    She was not "both genders", she remained a woman all alone while pretending otherwise.

    Actually, 'gender', as opposed to 'sex', refers to self-identity and the cultural aspects of masculinity/ femininity, so the statement is correct.

    Semantics aside, she was a woman with all female accessories.
