Who Qualifies as a Lady?

how to phrase trans inclusion in women's events

What does 'lady' mean? Are transgendered ladies welcome? Yes! Events listed as "ladies only" are open to all women, including women who identify as men, and ladies who were born gentlemen.

I have a feeling that phrases such as "women who identify as men" and "laies who were born gentlemen" are going to offend a lot of trans people... I think what should happen is to change "ladies only" events to "ladies and trans/genderqueer people only" if that's what we actually mean.
