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.

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.

Running While Black: Finding Freedom in a Sport That Wasn't Built for Us Running While Black: Finding Freedom in a Sport That Wasn't Built for Us

Alison Mariella Désir (Author
A searing exposé on the whiteness of running, a supposedly egalitarian sport, and a call to reimagine the industry
“Runners know that running brings us to ourselves. But for Black people, the simple act of running has never been so simple. It is a declaration of the right to move through the world. If running is claiming public space, why, then, does it feel like a negotiation?”  
Running saved Alison Désir’s life. At rock bottom and searching for meaning and structure, Désir started marathon training, finding that it vastly improved both her physical and mental health. Yet as she became involved in the community and learned its history, she realized that the sport was largely built with white people in mind.  
Running While Black draws on Désir’s experience as an endurance athlete, activist, and mental health advocate to explore why the seemingly simple, human act of long distance running for exercise and health has never been truly open to Black people. Weaving historical context—from the first recreational running boom to the horrific murder of Ahmaud Arbery—together with her own story of growth in the sport, Désir unpacks how we got here and advocates for a world where everyone is free to safely experience the life-changing power of movement.   
As America reckons with its history of white supremacy across major institutions, Désir argues that, as a litmus test for an inclusive society, the fitness industry has the opportunity to lead the charge—fulfilling its promise of empowerment.
