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?

Ruling applies to athletes who have transitioned after puberty - Levels of permitted plasma testosterone also reduced by half
From ICONS:a very important point:
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.
April 28, 2023: Linda Blade has retired as president of the board of Athletics Alberta in Canada. She has been at the forefront of the battle for protection of women's sports in Canada and the world.
