Gender and Sports

Should there be standards as to whether someone is a woman for purposes of competing in women’s events at the Olympics?  What constitutes an athlete as a woman? How should they differentiate who is a woman and who is not? Including transgender people.

Give the arguments on both sides of the question.  Discuss  and critique the standards presently and previously used for determining whether someone should be allowed to compete as a woman in the Olympics. 

Use and cite good sources.  Your paper should be approximately five pages long, double spaced.
