Italian Society of Paediatrics: stopping puberty in dysphoric children does not cause permanent problems. But several studies prove otherwise

UK, Sweden, Finland, USA: much of the world is up in arms against puberty blockers that can irreversibly damage the health of girls and boys. The Tavistock clinic in London is closing down, a thousand families are preparing for a class action in defence of their daughters and sons who have not been properly treated, many American paediatricians are attacking their trade association which is pushing for the administration of these drugs. But for the Italian paediatricians' society these problems do not exist

According to the Italian Society of Paediatrics, the effects of puberty blockers used to treat girls and boys with gender dysphoria are perfectly REVERSIBLE: this means that if the girl/boy changes her mind about her intention to 'change sex' and suspends the 'therapy', her development will resume normally, without any definitive effects and/or health problems. This is not the case at all. The effects of puberty blocker therapy are by no means 'completely reversible', as has been demonstrated by several [...]

California, transfusion of children

The American state proposes itself as a 'health' tourism destination for minors who are unable to access transition where they live. Exempting the parents and relieving the operators of any risk of litigation in the event of subsequent 'repentance'. Meanwhile in the UK, after the closure of the Tavistock, eyes are on a Scottish clinic where the experimental model (puberty blockers and surgery) continues to be applied

There is a real war going on in the United States over the ideology of gender identity and its promotion in schools. A 'culture war' pitting the elites, who fund and promote gender ideology, against the ordinary people who oppose it (see the Disney case here). While Biden from day one has made many legislative concessions to trans activism at the federal level, the Republicans have intercepted the discontent of the citizenry with various counter-legislation at the state level, such as [...]

Worker yes. Minister no. Woman neither

If there is one thing Italian politicians all agree on, it is the erasure of women, starting with language. While the 'progressive' left erases us with asterisks and schwa -fake-inclusive language that returns everything to the masculine- the right refuses to use the feminine for women of authority in institutions. But words are important because they make reality

Incredibly -and with a secret vote, wickedly conceded by President Casellati- a few days ago, the Senate rejected the Maiorino amendment authorising women in the institutions to be called by their names. This issue has profound political relevance. Many poets over the centuries have made use of poetic licences, i.e. intentional grammatical, metrical and syntactic errors with the intention of emphasising a concept or altering the sonority of the composition. On 27 July 2022 at Palazzo Madama is [...]

UK. Black week for the glittering trans-patriarchy: closed the Tavistock, gender clinic for children. And Allison Bailey wins in court: she was discriminated against for her gender critical views

The ideology of gender identity under attack in UK: NHS orders closure of paediatric transition clinic and points the way to psychological therapies. And Allison Bailey wins employment tribunal case backed by JK Rowling: employer ordered to compensate her for putting her 'under investigation' because of her gender critical views. At the suggestion of Stonewall, who comes out of it with her reputation in tatters

CLOSES TAVISTOCK, CHILDREN'S TRANSITION CLINIC: 'AFFIRMATIVE' APPROACH (DRUGS AND SURGERY) IS DANGEROUS FOR YOUNG PATIENTS The news is sensational: the British National Health Service (NHS) has ordered the closure of the Tavistock & Portman gender clinic for failing to ensure the safety of young patients, most of whom are girls (full article here). The clinic has been accused by several parties of hastily initiating many minors, most of them suffering from spectrum disorders [...].

Argentina: stop neutral language in schools

E' was the first country to introduce gender self-identification. Ten years later it is among the first to ban neutral language in schools as it is 'not even that inclusive: it creates a barrier for children with learning difficulties'

In 2012, Argentina was the first country in the world to introduce self-id or gender self-identification into its legal system. Ten years later, it is one of the first countries to ban neutral language in schools. As taught by the mothers of radical feminism and difference thinking, the neutral is a red herring that actually brings the male point of view back to the centre. If the illusion of the neutral is less noticeable in the English language, it is immediately [...]

Petrillo's stolen records: 'But I also won as a man'. Is this true? Here's the fact-checking

While the Olympic Committee announces a change in the guidelines on the participation of male bodies in women's sports, Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo aspires to participate in the Paralympic Games in the women's category. To those who accuse her of wanting to win easily, she replies that she was winning even before the transition. But this is not the case: here is an analysis of Petrillo's times and how they are evaluated in the male and female categories respectively

After the international federations of swimming, cycling and other sports, even the Olympic Committee is backtracking on the 'inclusive' sport of male bodies in women's sports. Francesco Ricci Bitti at the head of ASOIF, the association that brings together the international federations of summer Olympic sports, announced at a recent conference the need to review the current rules on the participation of transgender athletes, especially MtF, men who 'identify as women'. Francesco Ricci Bitti said, "According to the human rights approach [...]

Open field, closed lists

The tiger's eye does not want to see that you can reassemble and recombine the line-up all you want, but if the faces and names remain the same you have very little credibility. And if the only goal recognisable to most of the electorate is to bar the way for your political opponent - for once a woman, which makes it all the more surreal - your chances of success are not very good.

Work is in progress on the construction of the large rassemblement or open camp (the wide one has been discontinued). The discussion is only between men (with the partial exception of Emma Bonino) and the cement that holds the coalition project together is 'stopping Meloni': there is little discussion of political programmes, and what Calenda, Fratoianni and Di Maio may have in common is all to be understood. Observers and sociologists of politics scoff to point out that building a project 'against' [...].

Maya Forstater, fired for saying sex cannot be changed, wins in court: it was discrimination

Decisive for gender critical feminism around the world was the victory of Maya, a researcher who lost her job over a tweet in which she wrote that biological sex is immutable and that women have rights based on sex. Britain reaffirms the right to criticise gender identity: threats and accusations of transphobia are illegitimate. "A'further proof" says Forstater "that the wind is changing". The final ruling of the labour court also ordered the company that did not renew the contract of the researcher, co-founder of Sex Matters, to pay compensation. A triumph across the board

A year ago, June 2021, Feminist Post published an article on the case of Maya Forstater, the British researcher whose employment contract was not renewed by her employer for expressing critical views on the concept of gender identity and reaffirming the importance of women's gender-based rights. The article ended by reminding readers that Maya's case was not yet over and, although the appeal ruling of the [...]

Milan introduces gender self-certification
All it will take is a 'solemn' declaration to be able to choose what sex you are -female, male or neither- without any medical acts, expert opinions or judgments, and to adopt the 'alias' identity in various municipal services, including electoral rolls. In fact self-id, a huge change introduced by a simple administrative act and without any public debate. But it is all to be assessed whether the law allows it
So in Milan, self-id was introduced: it means being able to decide whether you are male, female - or neither - in total freedom, without expert opinions, sentences, witnesses - as the national law provides for: nothing of the sort, a simple bureaucratic step and it's done. In Great Britain, after years of public debate, self-id was shelved: the overwhelming majority of the population was against it. In Milan, without any debate, as if citizenship did not exist, as if laws did not exist, and [...]

Out the door, gender identity is already back in the window
Gender identity is back in the Senate, included in a PD-IV amendment to the Infrastructure bill. Rejected in the Zan bill, the concept reappears in other laws, bills and regulations. A real encirclement that preludes to new imminent attempts to introduce self-certification or self-id. *Ultim'now: the Infrastructures bill would already be law, approved just this morning
The Zan bill has stumbled mainly - but not only - on gender identity, the first step towards free self-certification of gender or self-identity. But once out the door, gender identity is trying to get back in through the window. Or rather, through the many windows of laws, local laws, regulations and codes that will use the concept anyway. An 'encirclement' that could allow a new attempt to pass the formula at the level of national legislation. After all, the battle for gender self-certification is in [...]

COMMUNICATION FROM THE FEMINIST NETWORK AGAINST THE ZAN DDL #NoncancelleRete
The protection of homosexual and transsexual persons is a different game from that of gender identity, which aims to reduce human sexuality to insignificance. The two levels must be kept separate. The Senate should vote in full conscience
The Zan dossier is too important to be left to the electoral tactics and personalism of politicians. At issue, with the introduction of gender identity, is a model of civilisation in which human sexuality is reduced to insignificance, an issue that concerns everyone and everyone. We indicated the possibility of returning to the Scalfarotto bill of 2018 -then relaunched by Italia Viva- because that text, born in the centre-left, guarantees the necessary protection of homosexual and transsexual persons [...]

Zan bill: we are proud of us
Italia Viva's mediation proposal calls for a return to the Scalfarotto bill and corresponds to the demands of feminism. After a year of struggles and doors slammed in our faces, we have finally been heard and are at the centre of the debate.
Italia Viva is playing an active mediation role on the Zan ddl and proposes that an agreement be reached on a modified text to "bring the Zan ddl back to the definition contained in the Scalfarotto ddl, that is, adding the words 'or based on homophobia or transphobia, in addition to the issue of disability, and revising the articles accordingly". In short, away with gender identity and away with sex - which in the Zan bill extends protection to misogyny-misandry. It is also asked to delete Article 4 -the [...]

The Vatican, feminists, Zan and foolish men
Diplomatic relations between Italy and the Vatican are not our business. On the other hand, we have the utmost competence on the many worrying critical aspects of the Zan bill. We have long asked to be heard. Now we no longer ask. Ask them
Diplomatic relations between Italy and the Vatican are not our business, at least no more than it is for any other citizen. Everyone will legitimately have their own opinion. Some will judge the Vatican's action as undue interference, others as a legitimate call to respect pacts between States. Others will remain perfectly indifferent. However, the subject matter of the crisis - the contents of the Zan bill - is our responsibility, in the sense that we have jurisdiction over it. We are probably among those who know most about these issues. [...]

In Italy, the PD supports gender identity. In Spain the Psoe fights it
Two 'sister' parties divided on such a sensitive issue: for the Spanish socialists, gender identity erases women. Yet with same-sex marriage, Spain is ahead of Italy in terms of LGBT rights. Recommended reading for PD leaders. Especially to the women of that party
The Psoe document against gender identity ARGUMENTS AGAINST THEORIES THAT DENY THE REALITY OF WOMEN Sex is a biological fact and gender is a social construct. Sex is a biological fact. It refers to the bodily, biological and physiological characteristics that define and differentiate human beings as men and women. The sex that women are born with determines their place in the world, from which the space that [...]

Cirinnà master
Debate on #ddlZan organised by PD Lazio. Together with the first signatory Alessandro Zan, Monica Cirinnà, the head of the PD Women's Conference Cecilia D'Elia and a single critical voice, that of Valeria Fedeli. The gist: Zan in an unprecedented mode of dialogue - of which we hope finally to be able to take advantage - and against the violent language, ok; Cecilia D'Elia convincedly pro-Zan informs that the feminism PD is modernly "intersectional" (probably D'Elia has not yet recorded the rising wave, much more up to date around the world, [...].

Letter from a young feminist to Zan and the PD
By all means (social media, email), we tried to talk to Alessandro Zan, the first signatory of the bill on homobi-transphobia, misogyny and ableism, which has already been approved by the Chamber of Deputies and is waiting to be examined by the Senate. We invited him to take part in a Zoom debate to present our reasons and listen to his. We offered him interviews to be published in the daily press. Zan has never given the slightest hint of a response, and this is quite serious for an elected parliamentarian who, in order to legislate [...]
