Maybe, but only to a point. To call her/him a "her" only and refuse to look at the science which clearly shows the Xxy chromosome is also an error of of mis-gendering. So, to land on any one side definitively is also a foolish thing to do. But I bet you FEEL good about yourself and smugly afford yourself moral superiority as a result. Very foolish!
First off, none of us actually knows for certain what her chromosome pattern is, although I will grant you that there is a good chance that she has a y chromosome in there somewhere.
Secondly, she is legally, socially, and hormonally female, and should be addressed as such, unless she indicates otherwise.
I do, however, agree with you that gender is more complicated than simply male or female.
