Is Gender Retroactive?

Us Magazine posted this photo along with a description using the female pronoun. If gender is retroactive this way… was the gold medal won by a woman in 1976, not a man?

Think of all the places this photo has appeared over the years, especially sports magazines. This was a victory for men (genderally) is that being taken away from them now that Bruce Jenner is Caitlyn Jenner?

I think it’s an interesting side issue. 

Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, reintroduced herself with a gorgeous Vanity Fair July cover in June 2015 — see photos of the reality star and former Olympic athlete through the years!
