I know they took her out of the home version
Supposedly when Final Fight was originally released, Capcom was concerned that Americans wouldn't react well to a fighting game that featured female thugs that you could repeatedly beat up. They changed both Roxy and Poison into transvestites for the American release before replacing them completely with other characters. However, for subsequent releases, Poison was changed to a post-op transexual.
That being said, at this point I think Capcom's official stance on the character is that she is whatever you want her to be.
