I see nothing wrong with then using the bathroom of their choice, but access to areas like a gym shower area and participation in sports to me is another question of both privacy and fairness.

A biological boy who prefers to see himself as a female should not be allowed in the girls shower area and competing against other girls in sports while he still has the advantage of his testicles producing testosterone would be unfair to the extreme.

At this time there are no requirements for a trans person to have hormone therapy before declaring themselves as a new gender. A moderately skilled male soccer player would be a standout female player as one example.
