Unsporting: How Trans Activism and Science Denial are Destroying Sport
2003: Dr Richard Budgett, in which he discusses the consequences of trans women competing in women’s sport. responding to a government inquiry, Budgett, then at the British Olympic Association, states: “the effect of allowing male transsexuals to compete as women would be to make competition unfair and potentially dangerous in some sports and would undermine women’s sports.”.
2021: "Everyone agrees that trans women are women" .
2022: The science has not changed - the politics have!
June 2022: The World Athletics president, Sebastian Coe, has hailed swimming’s decision to ban transgender women from elite female competition as in “the best interests of its sport” – and hinted that track and field could soon follow suit.
July 2022: British Triathlon has announced that for athletes over the age of 12, there will be two categories; a Female Category, (for those who are the female sex at birth), and an Open Category, (for all individuals including male, transgender and those non-binary who were male sex at birth
November 30, 2022: Disappointingly World Athletics kicked the transgender "can" down the road to March 2023. The question is why? The science is clear and it is settled - men have an unfair advantge over women in sport. Stop trying to pretend otherwise.
January 21, 2023: World Athletics proposals to preserve path for trans women in female category.
Jamuary 22, 2023: Given Coe's previous strong stements about protecting female athletes one wonders if the pressure to include males in female sport is coming from someone else?

In regard to transgender athletes, the Council has agreed to exclude male-to-female transgender athletes who have been through male puberty from female World Rankings competition from 31 March 2023."
This is a move in the right direction.
However, It cannot be that only elite female athletes are deserving of fair competition and equal opportunity - the problems now fall on the far less visible girls and women in the world - young girls and athletes in sports at every level deserve fair competition and encouragement to thrive in their sports.

  Book/Video/Movie of the Month - June, 2023  
Up to Speed: The Groundbreaking Science of Women Athletes Up to Speed: The Groundbreaking Science of Women Athletes

Christine Yu (Author)
“Up to Speed is a roadmap and toolbox for athletes of all ages. Every coach should read it and discuss it with their athletes. I wish I had been able to read this book while I was competing.” —Kara Goucher, Olympic long-distance runner and author of The Longest Race
How the latest science can help women achieve their athletic potential
Over the last fifty years, women have made extraordinary advances in athletics. More women than ever are playing sports and staying active longer. Whether they’re elite athletes looking for an edge or enthusiastic amateurs, women deserve a culture of sports that helps them thrive: training programs and equipment designed to work with their bodies, as well as guidelines for nutrition and injury prevention that are based in science and tailored to their lived experience.
Yet too often the guidance women receive is based on research that fails to consider their experiences or their bodies. So much of what we take as gospel about exercise and sports science is based solely on studies of men.
The good news is, this is finally changing. Researchers are creating more inclusive studies to close the gender data gap. They’re examining the ways women can boost athletic performance, reduce injury, and stay healthy.
Sports and health journalist Christine Yu disentangles myth and gender bias from real science, making the case for new approaches that can help women athletes excel at every stage of life, from adolescence to adulthood, through pregnancy, menopause, and beyond. She explains the latest research and celebrates the researchers, athletes, and advocates pushing back against the status quo and proposing better solutions to improve the active and athletic lives of women and girls.
