How to convince progressives to give up gender

Terrified of transactivists and worried about sounding 'right-wing', left-wingers support the transition of minors even in the absence of studies showing that 'affirmative therapy' works and promotes the well-being of gender non-conforming girls and boys. "But everyone has a right to evidence-based medicine," argue some liberals determined to "break the spell". And they start DIAG -Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender- to convince democrats in the US and around the world that continuing on this path is wrong and dangerous. For children and for the left. An article by Bernard Lane

A new movement of US Democrats wants to find out how to break the spell of gender ideology and bring the party back to the liberal values of science and reason. Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender (DIAG) launched a project yesterday on X Space (Twitter) to commission research on how to more effectively reach out to left-wing voters who believe that science is now in favour of 'gender-affirming' medicalisation of gender non-conforming youth. "The only way to end this [...]

New York Times: Strong doubts about hormones for children with gender dysphoria

The world's leading woke newspaper has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, starting with the indecent treatment of JK Rowling. Today the paper changes course and in a very long article criticises the 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers, hormones and surgery) for trans minors, giving a voice to some hitherto censored and ostracised detransitioners. Because by now even many Democratic voters have strong doubts. And there is a risk of losing many readers: "get woke, go broke".

For years, the New York Times has been the world's leading woke newspaper and has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, jubilating critical voices. The treatment of JK Rowling is exemplary. In 2022 a very violent subscription campaign invited people to imagine Harry Potter without its creator: the ultimate in cancel culture (see here) A misogynistic and aggressive gesture - the initiative turned out to be a boomerang and many female subscribers threatened to cancel -. A few months ago The Daily published [...].

Men IntintA and other wonders

The health of 'Marco', a trans FtM who is five months pregnant with testosterone, and that of her baby are the least of the problems. What matters to the liberal press talking about an 'anthropological revolution' is whether 'Marco' is to be called mother or father. But only a woman can give birth even if at the registry office her name is male. In this nothing has changed since the dawn of time. In the meantime, the trans front is losing ground: in one year, the number of members of WPATH, the largest transgender health organisation, has fallen by 60 per cent.

La Repubblica online headlines with a triple somersault about the 'young man who got pregnant': pregnant is not dared even at the transphilic GEDI group. The story is that of 'Marco', a girl undergoing testosterone therapy to look more like a man: beard, graver voice -not to 'become male' because sex cannot be changed and every single cell will remain damned XX-. 'Marco' had retained his uterus and ovaries and following a hetero sexual relationship (a [...]

Child rapists: shock report in UK

In Great Britain, 18 rapes a day are committed by minors on their peers: in 2022 these cases numbered 15,000, almost always by very young males. A British police report shows how free access to violent pornography online is normalising criminal sexual behaviour in England and all other Western countries

For years, we have been reporting on the psychological and material damage produced on an entire generation by free access to violent online pornography, consumed by boys and girls from the age of 7 but also much earlier: gang rapes committed by minors are just the tip of the iceberg of this dramatic phenomenon, which has now been analysed and quantified by a study by the British police. On this topic you can find previous articles here, here, here and here. We were almost only [...]

New Hampshire: No more 'sex change' surgery on minors

The US state has passed a bill banning surgeons from performing operations on under-18 year olds such as the removal of ovaries and breasts for females and penises and testicles for males. The bill states that these operations violate the patient's 'informed consent' and points out that studies have not shown a decrease in the suicide risk of minors after the operations. On the contrary: the danger increases

New Hampshire is preparing to ban under-18s from undergoing sex-change operations. Last Thursday, the New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a bill to this effect, also with the help of some Democratic members. House Bill 619 prohibits doctors from performing 'any genital gender reassignment surgery', i.e. the removal of the uterus, ovaries and breasts in the case of women; testicles and penis for men, to anyone in the [...]

Puberty should perhaps be stopped at ALL: Transhuman drift of the World Health Organisation

In a veritable Christmas blitz, the WHO announces that it wants to draw up new gender-affirming guidelines and sets up a panel made up of three-quarters transactivists in favour of medicalising children. Preferably all of them, even those who do not suffer from dysphoria. Because choosing what sex you are must become a universal right. An international petition calls for a halt to the initiative

A few days before Christmas, the World Health Organisation (WHO) announced that it will develop new guidelines on the 'health of trans and gender diverse people', with a focus on access to hormones and surgery (what it calls 'gender-inclusive care.) ') and legal recognition of gender self-identification (self id). The WHO also announced that it has formed a group to develop the guidelines. This expert group includes many World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) apparatchiks, including [...]

Germany also considers a stop to hormones for girls with 'gender dysphoria'

As one of the most permissive laws on the transition of minors is about to be passed, a Bundestag document puts the brakes on and urges caution. Because there is insufficient scientific evidence that affirmative drug therapy increases the well-being of adolescents and that its effects are reversible. A serious and in-depth debate is needed, which has so far been prevented by transaggressive activism and the pressure of the LGBT+ lobby on politics and the media.

After years of resistance and battle by radical feminism around the world - as well as by self-organised parents resisting transpropaganda, such as the association GenerAzione D - the issue of minors undergoing transition with puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and surgery has finally come to the attention of the Italian Parliament. For some time now, the issue has been the subject of a bitter critical debate that has spread from Sweden and the UK to the entire Great North, as far as Australia, New Zealand and the United States [...].

UK: new guidelines for 'trans children' at school

No 'social' transition for primary school children. Careful assessment in other grades to ensure there is no 'social' influence. Parental involvement in every decision. Gender-segregated toilets. And an end to the Lgbtqai+ propaganda that for years almost exclusively ran affective and sex education classes. Look to the turnaround in the UK not to make the same mistakes

For years in the UK sex education in schools has meant Lgbtqai+ propaganda run by organisations such as Stonewall and Mermaids. The epidemic of transitions among minors, often facilitated by schools, convinced the Sunak government to intervene to regulate the issue with new guidelines. Today, when affective and sexual education in schools is also being discussed in Italy - moreover one of the main points of the Zan fu-ddl - looking at the English experience can be very useful to avoid making the same mistakes.

Born of a surrogate mother
Olivia Maurel, 32, was born to a surrogate mother and today she is fighting on the front line against the practice, which she describes as 'atrocious' and 'monstrous'. She always knew something was wrong with her family. She suffers from depression, has had problems with alcoholism and has attempted suicide several times. Only recently has she discovered the truth about her origins and that she suffered the trauma of abandonment. "To no child," she says, "should what happened to me ever happen again."
Commercial or 'altruistic' surrogacy must be abolished. These are the words of Olivia Maurel, born in December 1991 in Kentucky by traditional surrogacy (i.e. in which the oocyte also belongs to the 'surrogate mother', ed.), who recounted her experience in a conference at the parliament of the Czech Republic. Today, married with two children in Cannes, 'proud to be a feminist' as we read on her X page, she fights against surrogacy. Her testimony, very valuable as there are still very few [...]

Female wombs in male bodies
The envious dream of all time -to be able to have children without women, to erase mothers, in short, the Grail- is getting closer and closer to being realised: in five to ten years' time, even biologically male trans people will be able to receive a womb transplant and conduct a gestation. An 'inclusive' wish-right that would improve their quality of life and alleviate the symptoms of dysphoria. While the lives and health of girls and boys born from these practices are of no concern to bioethicists
Euronews reports on the rapid progress of research on the uterus transplantation front, with particular reference to the request of trans MtF people whose bodies remain biologically male, while FtM people, if they retain their female genital apparatus, can undertake a pregnancy like any other woman: the 'pregnant fathers' that the mainstream press likes to report on are none other than women who self-identify as men. In the article, which we translate here, women are referred to as cis- women, suffixed [...]

Lesbian motherhood: open letter to Kathleen Stock
The gender critical philosopher says she is concerned about the rights of lesbian mothers being denied 'by the Meloni government'. But it was the judiciary and not the government that decided that only biological mothers can appear on birth certificates. In order for the law to recognise sexual difference in procreation, it is necessary for homosexual women to break the front with wealthy gay males who resort to surrogacy: homogeny is just ideology
We have been following closely and sisterly the story of Kathleen Stock, gender critical philosopher, author among others of Material Girls: Why Reality Matters for Feminism (Little, Brown Book Group, 2021) and former lecturer at the University of Sussex persecuted by transactivists: we have told her story here. Together with Martina Navratilova and Julie Bindel Stock she recently founded The Lesbian Project with the aim of reaffirming the specificity of lesbian identity. The aim of the project is 'to stop the disappearance of lesbians in the rainbow soup and to give [...]

The 'right' to have a slave: Hagar and the womb for rent
For days, the supporters of the GPA have been jubilantly spreading the 'news': even God allows a woman to bear children for others, as the biblical account of Sarah -wife of Abraham unable to conceive- and her servant Hagar who lent her womb shows. So today, too, temporary slaves are being claimed: a real ethical and political short-circuit. And an autogoal. Also because the Genesis account should be read in its entirety
For days on social media, the supporters of the womb for rent, in particular many LGBT+ activists and their supporters, have been reviving the story of the slave girl Hagar and her son Ishmael (Genesis 16 and 21) to support the lawfulness and goodness of their cause. The meaning would be: even God allows a woman to bear a child for others. So: nothing wrong with our claim. In fact, we too are entitled to have female slaves. A logical, political and ethical short-circuit. They do not know [...]

Escaping trans madness
'I want it to be known that there is hope. Young people with 'gender dysphoria' and their families can be helped with a psychological course,' writes American psychiatrist Miriam Grossman in her latest book. Explaining in detail and empathically her therapeutic proposal. And indicating in the hammering propaganda of the transcult the most insidious obstacle
Miriam Grossman is an American psychiatrist. The following is an edited extract published by Gender Clinic News of her new essay Lost in Trans Nation: A Child Psychiatrist's Guide Out of the Madness. It is a very interesting and 'empathetic' read, especially for those families facing the problem of a teenage daughter/daughter with 'gender discomfort'. James sports a scruffy beard. Sarah wears skirts and doesn't bother with pronouns. Taylor wants to talk about college, not the [...]

Making babies in vitro: The Economist special
The weekly acknowledges the high failure rate of assisted fertilisation and explains the new techniques -from gametogenesis to mitochondrial replacement- wishing for rapid progress. But it is silent on the risks to children's health. And it does not speak of infertility prevention: a commitment that would damage the enormous business
The weekly magazine The Economist devotes a long special to the subject of assisted reproduction, entitled Making Babymaking Better, first of all acknowledging that although performance has been improving the number of failures of these techniques is still very high. On average 7-8 attempts out of 10 fail, a number of failures that increases in parallel with the age of the woman: menopause is a process that only occurs in human females and some whale species. The [...]

Vagina? No. It's called an 'extra hole'
Woke language claims to be inclusive at the exclusive expense of women, who must literally disappear: pregnancy, breastfeeding, female sex organs can no longer be named so as not to offend the trans and non-binary ultra-minorities. It is the latest ridiculous move of the dying patriarchy that has built itself up from the very beginning on the marginalisation and erasure of the feminine. It still tries, but it will not succeed
Transactivists are ridiculous: in order not to 'offend' the ultra-exiguous minority of women who declare themselves male while retaining the female genital organ, the vagina can no longer be called that. Bonus hole, extra hole: this is the term. Even front hole no longer suffices: its unserviceability must be better emphasised. A relentless work to erase women from language and the symbolic, a move in extremis by the patriarchy that has built itself from the beginning on the erasure and abjection of the feminine, [...].

On the risks of the ROPA method
The technique used by an increasing number of lesbian couples consists of using the oocyte of one to make an embryo that will then be inserted into the womb of the other who will carry the pregnancy. This practice is physically and psychologically dangerous both for the two women and for the child that will be born. This is why
In our recent communiqué Per il vero bene dei bambini (For the true good of the children) we expressed our concern about the increasing use by female couples of the ROPA technique (Recepción de ovocitos de la pareja), i.e. the transfer of the fertilised oocyte of one into the womb of the other who will carry out the gestation. For this stance we have received acclaim, some insults and many requests for information and sources. What does the ROPA method consist of and what are its risks? For the [...]

Who cooked Adam Smith's dinner? For a RadFem economic theory, speech by Sheila Jeffreys
The traditional economy based on the 'rational' homo oeconomicus never takes into account the base of the iceberg: the huge amount of unpaid female labour without which the system simply would not stand. The necessary change does not come from the inclusion of more women in a model that is based on aggression, gambling and risk, but from a new paradigm that places the value of people, relationships and care at the centre
At a recent seminar organised by Women's Declaration International as part of its Radical Feminist Perspectives series, Sheila Jeffreys -former professor of political science at the University of Melbourne and one of the founders of the global WDI network- gave a talk on Rad Fem Economic Theory (the entire meeting can be viewed here). Jeffrey started from a text she wrote in 2010, on the heels of the global financial crisis. It was called 'Who Cooked Adam Smith's Dinner', whose thought completely omitted the [...]

Transgender: the victory of Puer Aeternus
An evolution of the unisex who struggled against gender stereotypes, the 'gender' phenomenon among adolescents expresses the attempt to escape the biological debt-obligation and the need to feel disengaged from stepmotherly nature. But the transgender person is by no means his or her own creator: if anything, he or she is subservient to a totipotent 'spirit' that enslaves the mind and psyche. And the gay movement that advocates puerile simulation fails to see that it is precisely homosexual identity that comes off worst
Transgender ideology goes beyond the transsexual claim of the construction of sex by subtraction or addition of something from a matrix, because it challenges the very existence of the male and the female, and especially the latter, making the female gender a product of educational norms, DIY craftsmanship, beauty shop, chemical laboratory, surgical table. Both appeal to the 'truth' of the omnipotent creation of the sexes, destitute of actual reality. Young women in particular are unfortunately fertile ground [...].

Jama: when men give birth
In an incredible, recently published study, the American Medical Association's journal, one of the most important in the field, tries to give scientific backing to the idea that childbirth is not just a female experience. Because if it were exclusive, it would also be exclusionary. An operation on language in collision with reality
As we know, there are words that can no longer be used, especially in international scientific documents and studies. At the top of the list of tabooed words are all the terms that have to do with female difference understood as the exclusive possibility of giving birth to human beings, and thus: 'woman' -if biologically understood and not open to define persons not born women-, 'mother' and 'maternal', 'breast', with reference to breast-feeding, and so on. The operation on language aims to qualify [...].

Puberty blockers: pure experimentation on children's skin
Two very recent scientific studies show that in the absence of rigorous research and trials demonstrating long-term effects, the treatment of gender-nonconforming minors with drugs and surgery is entirely experimental and unethical. Even on dysphoria diagnoses there are no validating criteria and the risk of error is very high with dramatic consequences on the lives of the very young. But in Italy these 'therapies' do not stop
Two very recent studies -one published on 17 April by the scientific journal Acta Paediatrica and entitled A systematic review of hormone treatment for children with gender dysphoria and recommendations for research, the other made public on 14 April by Current Sexual Health Reports, entitled Current Concerns About Gender-Affirming Therapy in Adolescents- point to the pharmacological and surgical 'therapies' for children with gender non-conforming behaviour. by Current Sexual Health Reports, titled Current Concerns About Gender-Affirming Therapy in Adolescents- focus on pharmacological and surgical 'therapies' for girls and boys with gender non-conforming behaviour -recourse to puberty blockers, sex-cross hormones and scalpels-.
