SPAIN: SOCIALISTS AGAINST THE TRANS LEY

Unlike their Italian counterparts from the PD and the left who stand for free gender identity, the Spanish progressives break with the PSOE's transactivist policies in defence of women and children. In their manifesto the excellent arguments against what, if passed, could be the worst transactivist law in the world

Breaking with its party, the PSOE, and sending a signal to the women of the European left, who are generally aligned in defence of transactivist diktatism, the Federación de Mujeres Progresistas launches a courageous manifesto against the Trans Law wanted by the governing majority in Spain (PSOE and Podemos) and being approved by an emergency procedure, without an effective parliamentary debate or a wide public discussion. The initiative also comes in response to the clamorous break between historical Spanish feminism -united in the Contraborrado cartel- [...].

RU486 or abortion pill: myths, misunderstandings and business

Chemical abortion is sold as more free and self-determined, but it is not the solution for everyone: it is longer and more painful than surgery, sometimes less safe, and mostly serves to save the health system money, as the essay by three American feminists explains. Women must be guaranteed the right to be informed and to make an informed choice between the two options: here is a bill to make hospitals work

A few days ago we published 'When abortion matters to men'. In the post we mentioned the various methods of involuntary termination of pregnancy, including the abortion pill RU 486, also known as 'chemical abortion'. Chemical abortion is spoken of as a step forward in self-determination. Younger women in particular can get confused between 'morning-after' contraception (which must be taken within 72 hours of risky intercourse) and the abortion pill, with which pregnancy can be terminated up to the ninth week. [...]

When abortion matters to men

Totally ignored by the right and left in peacetime, the issue of abortion becomes central when men fight for their power. But if there is a 'Marche case' there is also a 'Emilia case', a red region: the same percentages of objection and no abortion pill in the consultatories. We women must not take part in this filthy dispute over our flesh, siding with one or the other supporters.

Women - or rather, so-called 'women's rights' - have been instrumentally thrown into the centre of this horrific election campaign, probably the worst ever. Not the low female employment rate, the gender pay gap, the lack of services that forces us into the living welfare part, violence and feminicide, the machismo of politics and all that we know and experience. The issue of issues is abortion, fished out of the oblivion in which it is normally confined -no party [...]

Perhaps gender identity does not exist

If it is the biologist Anna Fausto-Sterling, the first to speak about it in the 1990s, the inspiration of Judith Butler and the founder of gender theory, who is in doubt, then perhaps we are at a clamorous and definitive turning point. Stop trans laws before it is too late!

If Judith Butler is The Queen of Gender, Anna Fausto-Sterling is its goddess: zoologist, biologist and lecturer in gender studies -now at Brown University- starting from the rare genetic condition of intersexuality in the early 1990s, she was the first to attack the concept of sexual binaryity, arguing that sexuality is a spectrum and that at least five sexes can be identified ('come on, it wasn't a theory, I was being ironic, it was just a provocation' she later said. But in vain). [...]

Trans-Europe: Ireland, UK, Spain, gender laws high on political agendas

While the new British Prime Minister Liz Truss works to block gender self-certification in Scotland, the Iberian government prevents the parliamentary debate on the Ley Trans, which allows sex change even for 12 year olds, to go for approval in a hurry: that is why Spanish feminists break with the left and open dialogue with the Popular Party. Meanwhile in Ireland a professor is arrested for refusing to use fluid language

A teacher at an Irish Christian school, Enoch Burke, was suspended and then arrested for refusing to name a transgender student with a neuter pronoun. Meanwhile, new British PM Liz Truss is reportedly trying to block Scotland's plans to allow self-identification for transgender (self-id) people and has asked lawyers for advice on how to 'pause or prevent' the reforms. Truss, head of the equalities brief as well as a former foreign minister, was instrumental in ruling out [...]

Elizabeth, the last matriarch

The missing queen wielded her power so skilfully that it was invisible. A profound influence that never backfired. Wisdom, an iron sense of duty, pragmatism, emotional control and no narcissism: these are the traits of sovereignty that make her a model of female authority

Gaby Hinsliff for The Guardian Stop all watches. Unplug the phone. For once, the opening lines of WH Auden's poem, Funeral Blues, seem appropriate to the moment. Like it or not, much of public life will come to a halt in the days of mourning as broadcasters suspend their programmes and a state funeral is prepared. However long it may have been predicted, the death of the longest reigning monarch in British history is a moment [...]

A video every 10 minutes

The brutal murder of Alessandra Matteuzzi, hammered to death by her ex-boyfriend, is the perfect representation of every feminicide: the murderer is not someone who loses control, but one who restores it. Her death serves to restore the balance lost as a result of the abandonment. Violence is a function of domination. It's here that one must keep one's gaze to be able to stop it

The killing of Alessandra Matteuzzi, the Bolognese woman murdered by her ex with a hammer and an iron bench, is the plastic and perfect representation of the dynamics of every feminicide. Giovanni Padovani is not crazy, he is not a drop-out, he is a young man in perfect shape, integrated in the world, even a testimonial for campaigns against violence against women. In short, you would never have guessed it. Alessandra is subjected to constant and unprecedented harassment: she has to justify every movement, every breath, [...].

A POLITICAL HORIZON COMMON TO WOMEN OF ALL PARTIES

In the sign of Carla Lonzi forty years after her death: women voters and activists from all parties unite in the gift of a common 'unexpected programme', a horizon for a change of civilisation

"Will women always be divided from one another? Will they never form a single body?" (Olympe de Gouges, 1791) On the 40th anniversary of Carla Lonzi's death. We are women who vote for every political party. We live in every part of the country. We belong to every social condition. We are mothers and non-mothers. We have a faith, or we are agnostics, or atheists. We are held together by being women and the knowledge that what is good for a woman and her daughters/daughters is good [...]

Abortion in the USA: something doesn't add up
A "little hand" brings out in advance a Supreme Court ruling that would make the termination of pregnancy illegal. To whose advantage and why? With what consequences for the midterm elections, in which Biden was expected to lose? And what has gender-critical feminism, which some liberal observers want to blame, got to do with it?
A real political bombshell, thrown just a few months before the midterm elections, is the draft ruling of the US Supreme Court, which has fortunately leaked, that would make abortion illegal in the United States, overturning the historic Roe v. Wade ruling that made it legal in 1973. In the meantime, it is a draft; the final ruling is expected in June. It is also a question of who's 'little hand' it came from, and why. It could have been any of the conservative justices (Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito who would [...]

Biden: yes to hormones for girls and boys
Unlike Sweden, Finland, the UK and Australia, pioneering countries which, in view of the damage caused by drugs on children with gender dysphoria, are returning to the priority of psychological therapy, the US is pushing for immediate pharmacologisation. And they call it "children's right", saying that any other approach is "discriminatory".
The US Department of Justice released a document endorsing the 'affirmative' approach to transitioning children, which involves immediately prescribing puberty-blocking drugs and hormones to girls and boys who say they are uncomfortable with their gender, skipping the psychological assessment so as not to delay medicalisation in any way. Abigail Shrier broke the news on Twitter (see here). Once again, the Biden administration has gone against the grain of countries pioneering gender identity, [...]

USA. Parents sue schools that unknowingly encourage girls' and boys' transitions
This is happening in Kettle Moraine (Wisconsin), where the school district is encouraging 'non-conforming' minors to adopt names and pronouns of the opposite sex without informing their parents. The position of families claiming their educational rights - together with that of paediatricians opposed to gender affirming 'therapies' and athletes against trans people in their sports - will have considerable weight in the presidential elections: on these issues Biden has already lost Virginia.
Two groups of parents have sued the Kettle Moraine (Wisconsin) school district for encouraging underage students confused about their 'gender identity' to change names and pronouns at school without parental consent (career aka. see here). The lawsuit joins those of young female athletes deprived of potential sports wins and scholarships for admitting 'trans-identified' males into their sports (see here) and pediatricians threatened with 'discrimination' if they don't immediately initiate the [...]

No to mandatory child transition: thousands of US paediatricians sue the Biden administration
The number of doctors opposing the medical transition of girls is growing. Two American paediatricians' associations are challenging the Biden Act, which replaces sex with gender identity, and are asking not to be forced to prescribe experimental and harmful procedures against their medical judgment, ethics or religious beliefs.
A group of more than 3,000 paediatricians sued the Biden administration over its reinterpretation of the Affordable Care Act that requires doctors to provide drugs and surgeries to 'gender transition' minors. In May, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that its Office for Civil Rights would interpret and apply Section 1557 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act differently: prohibiting [...]

Biden administration wipes out women and girls
Without any public debate and against the opinion of the majority of Americans, President Joe Biden is pushing ahead with replacing the word 'sex' with 'gender identity' in all administrative acts and documents, with serious impact on the lives of women and girls. All over the world, liberals and progressives are pursuing this same goal in the service of the trans-lobby.
It is happening. It's as bad as it looks and no one should be in any doubt. Everything Janice Raymond predicted in 1979 has come true. Everything you see published on the 11th Hour blog is reality. This is not at all a question of plot. On his first day in office, President Biden signed Executive Order 13988 on preventing and combating discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation. Many of us, myself included, naively assumed that this would [...]

Sign up now, in time for 8 March! From women around the world to the US Senate: Don't pass the Equality Act! Gender identity' erases us
A letter to be signed immediately! (In the United States, the Equality Act, which has already passed the House of Representatives, is about to be approved in the Senate. As Feminist Post has repeatedly reported, the Equality Act, strongly supported by the Biden administration, effectively replaces the concept of "sex" with that of "gender identity", erasing women, girls and children and making being a woman a "choice" available to men. Declaration on Women's Sex-Based Rights, which has a network of 15,000 adherents [...]

Trans rights: a major issue in American politics
The American Democratic Party is being torn apart by the Andrew Cuomo affair, the New York state governor accused of harassment by three women, and by other important issues such as the diatribe between moderates and Sanders' left wing on the failure to raise the minimum wage. But it regains its unity on the issue of transgender rights, to which Joe Biden has been devoting extraordinary attention since the very first hours of his mandate, to the point of threatening sanctions against those countries that have [...]

"Gender? No thanks. Women and men. Modernising the language of politics
Radical feminism has long since stopped using the term 'gender' to refer to sexual difference. In fact, it no longer uses it at all: "women and men" or even "the two sexes" are words that are perfectly fine and have the advantage that they cannot be misunderstood. Language is the human environment, the world is built with words, which is why they must be chosen carefully. Since the 1990s, the word gender has been completely redefined. Mary Daly had prophesied: of [...]

Those good progressive boys, fake friends of feminism
Radical feminism around the world is discussing the need to stop having illusions about the left's support for the women's movement. Today, on the contrary, left-wing transhumanism (free sex work, free uterus for rent, support for gender identity, hormones for girls and boys and all the rest) is creating many problems for women. Here is an example of left-wing anti-feminism of these very days: the newspaper Il Manifesto which reduces to a brawl between envious hysterics (Carmen [...]

Why does gender identity enjoy such support? Just because people are afraid to say how they really think
Why does everyone support gender ideology? This is a question we keep hearing and also ask ourselves regularly. Everyone knows that human beings cannot change sex, so why does it seem that everyone agrees with gender ideology? It can be difficult to deal with this contradiction, seeking explanations for the seemingly illogical human behaviour that surrounds us. Are all those who blindly repeat 'trans women are women' stupid or uneducated? We know this cannot be the case, so many people [...]

Global mail-bombing to Biden and Kamala: take male bodies out of women's sports! Join in
The issue of the executive order issued by the new American president Joe Biden, which has re-admitted transwomen - male bodies and very often also male genitals, not infrequently mediocre male athletes who claim to 'perceive' themselves as women - to women's sports, as well as to the spaces reserved for women and girls: bathrooms, changing rooms, etc., is becoming increasingly explosive for the new American administration. The WOLF (Women's Liberation Front) is organising a global mail-bombing against the unfair and unjust measure against female athletes, demanding its immediate repeal [...].

Equality according to Biden: the right of men to call themselves women (and to win in all women's sports)
And Kamala? Nothing to say? "On social media, women have expressed relief at the end of the Trump era. Even Canadians have posted pictures of Kamala Harris and Jill Biden in outfits that represent progress. No true feminist would wear a black suit and red tie, after all. What America needs now are those jewel tones. I can't fathom what trauma we have suffered from seeing an egomaniac tweeting himself into the prison of the Internet ... If anything, it offered us the cue [...]
