Even America puts the brakes on hormones for 'trans' children

The first lawsuits are being filed in the USA by young people treated with puberty blockers and hormones who have seen their condition worsen. And the AAP -Association of American Paediatricians- announces the revision of its own guidelines, which to date have been favourable to these treatments. Meanwhile, research shows that so-called 'affirmative therapy' does not improve the situation of young people with dysphoria at all. On the contrary, they feel better when they discontinue it

Throughout the western world, the so-called gender affirmative therapy for minors (puberty blockers followed by cross-sex hormones and surgery) has long been the subject of heavy criticism by doctors and experts, even those who regret having prescribed it, who point out its dangerousness and ineffectiveness: some have said that in the future we will talk about it as one of the biggest scandals in the history of medicine, comparable to the use of lobotomy on 50,000 psychiatric patients in the middle of the century [...].

Misogynists out of public service

Teo Mammucari's engagement on 'Dancing with the Stars', starring in one of the most offensive shows ever against women, with a 'mute assistant' -Flavia Vento- boxed in plexiglas and methodically mocked, casts doubt on RAI's effective commitment against violence and machismo. And it obliges citizens to contribute to the cachet of those who have offered such a degrading image of women

To the RAI Board of Directors to the President MARINELLA SOLDI to the CEO ROBERTO SERGIO to the RAI Parliamentary Supervisory Commission The feminicide of Giulia Cecchettin marked a point of no return in the collective conscience on male violence: the only possible precedent is the Circeo crime. RAI represented this moment of pain and political awareness by manifesting its intention to mobilise permanently against misogyny and machismo. For this reason we are surprised, offended and saddened by the engagement to [...].

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 [...]

Israel 7 October: Appeal for recognition as mass feminicide

The women victims of the Hamas attack were not killed like all other civilians: they were exposed naked, raped, brutalised, humiliated, decapitated, their bodies burnt and torn to pieces. "We wanted to dirty them," say the terrorists. The violence against these women meets the definition of mass feminicide: from France a petition to international NGOs

British academics against cancel culture

On 20 November, the London Universities Council for Academic Freedom will be unveiled, a body that brings together a hundred or so professors from the major British universities with the intention of fighting against the censorship and single-mindedness that in recent years have impeded academic debate and freedom, compromising the education of thousands of students. In the crosshairs especially Lgbtq+ realities such as Stonewall that have heavily influenced university and higher education. About time, and go on!

As reported by The Telegraph, more than a hundred academics from the UK's top universities have joined forces to tackle the growing threat of cancel culture through the creation of a new body dedicated to academic freedom. In a pioneering initiative, the scholars have formed the 'London Universities Council for Academic Freedom', involving all academic institutions in the capital including University College London (UCL), King's College London, [...]

13 November in The Hague against surrogacy

The Private International Law Conference is pushing for transnational recognition of gestation per se contracts with the intention of forcing national legislation to benefit biomarket profits. The Icams coalition against GPA organised a demonstration in defence of women's dignity and against the market in girls and children

The International Coalition to Abolish Surrogacy (ICASM) organised an international demonstration in front of the Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCCH) on 13 November to oppose the regulation of cross-border 'surrogacy'. Indeed, attempts are being made to impose international regulation of so-called 'surrogacy': as of 13 November, the HCCH will set up a working group with the task of drafting a convention to allow cross-border recognition of contracts. This is to meet the growing demand in the biomarket [...]

Canada: gender critical nurse risks her job

Amy Hamm works in a psychiatric ward and is under investigation for promoting women's rights based on sex and child protection online. The BCCNM, the body that regulates the nursing profession, intends to suspend her unless she participates in a re-education programme but Amy opposes this: the hearing is underway. US journalist Megyn Kelly interviewed her

Canadian nurse Amy Hamm - one of the founders of the non-profit coalition Canadian Women Sex Based Rights (caWsbar) - works in an acute psychiatric ward specialising in mental health and substance use. Amy risks losing her nursing licence and her job because she allegedly promoted women's sex-based rights and child protection online. In recent years, Amy has been the subject of an investigation by the British Columbia College of Nurses & Midwives [...]

Manifesto of Russian feminists against the war
As Russian citizens and feminists, we condemn this war. Feminism as a political force cannot be on the side of a war of aggression and military occupation. The feminist movement in Russia fights for the weakest and for the development of a just society with equal opportunities and prospects, in which there can be no room for violence and military conflict.
On 24 February, at around 5:30 a.m. Moscow time, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a "special operation" on the territory of Ukraine to "denazify" and "demilitarise" this sovereign state. This operation had been in preparation for a long time. For several months, Russian troops had been moving to the border with Ukraine, but the authorities of our country denied any possibility of a military attack. We now know that this was a lie. Russia has declared war on its neighbours. [...]
