Ifs/ands/buts are well beyond the basic biological reality. And nobody was talking about cancers that affect both sexes, that's completely immaterial to the discussion. As you may remember, the discussion is about differences in cardiovascular capacity and therefore athletic ability for swimmers. That will not change via anything you have mentioned - the biology remains the same.
Rob was talking about pap smears which is a test for cervical cancer.
Every person is built different. Some people are lean and large, some people are lean and small. Some people build themselves for swimming, some people build themselves for hockey. Look at the build and speed of Bonnie Blair, Olympic medal speed skater. How do we know she is not trans? She was consistently blowing everyone away.
Are you suggesting removing all sex categorisation from sport?

How about, instead of a third "trans" category, which everyone will hate, let's have "anyone can compete". So, the winners of the men's and women's or top four of each. If a man wants to compete in balance beam or if a women's volleyball team wants to compete, there should be an extra category for that. But, again, "separate but equal" will not and does not work.
