Even if a man is able to successfully disguise himself as a female, he's still a male doing just that. In any category--race, ethnicity, age, disability, sex, etc., intentionally impersonating another group doesn't actually make you a member of that group, even if you are successful. Rachel Dolezal has always been white, no matter how many people perceived her as black. I'm sure she had genuine racism directed at her under that pretense. None of that changed the fact she was nothing other than a white person pretending to be black. And unlike sex, race IS a social construct--doesn't change the fact that according to that construct, she has never been black.
