Yeah! Gender should not come into this decision. We all want to play on a level playing field...so to speak.
I had to answer B due to the fact that the 14 day window had passed but the 7 day window had not. I usually look to the PDGA rules when deciding how to deal with certain situations. Now if the tourney is NOT PDGA sanctioned, then I would probably go with A and ignore the gender of the player completely. Also, the reason why the player wants/needs to withdraw should not make a difference.
