Just as a general observation from following the thread.

We don't need a single all-singing, all-dancing, always applicable definition of "woman" which allows us to separate the men from the women. We need one for top-level sport, another for recreational leagues, another for boarding schools, another for Target restrooms, another for STEM scholarships, and so forth.

It is possible to treat transwomen as women for all of your own social and personal purposes while recognizing that the designated gatekeepers of gender/sex-segregated spaces have a difficult and thankless task ahead of them.
