"There is a debate as to whether and man should retaliate if a woman starts hitting on him."

Yet there's curiously no debate about if a 250 pound linebacker should retaliate if a 140 pound MALE starts hitting on him.

I might be ignorant in saying so, but isn't weight class the most important factor? If you're trans and weigh the same as other people in your gender/weight class, then what does it matter?

I think that depends on the sport, some of them aren't weight classes, like running, but for wrestling it would be.
