This is already a topic in the NCAA with rules in place to accommodate. 60 Minutes did a large expose on it in the last year or two.

Or are you referring to something more specific?

Thank you. Specifically, the mother feels betrayed. The mother believes that her daughter was not dealt with fairly and that an injustice was done to her.  From the article,

Quote
The teen's mother, Bianca Stanescu, told CT Post that there's no transgender competition when it comes to things like 'math and science and chorus' but with sports it's different.

'Sports are set up for fairness,' she said. 'Biologically male and female are different, adding that  'the great majority is being sacrificed for the minority'.

She can probably feel more assured by the NCAA procedures in place. As I remember what I learned, it seems the play fields are pretty equal.

NCAA increased membership fees for all D3 school and conferences I believe started next year.  Here is an article on how they proposed to spend the additional $500,000. Not how I would have spent it.

The LGBTQ issue is obviously a hot topic in sports today, see the above dilemma in the CT HS track championships.  It seems that the NCAA has already addressed the issue in its new rules and regulations, now the move is to stay ahead of it from a public relations standpoint.
