Locked in a fence. Like in Kabul

Open letter to Mayor Gualtieri and other competent authorities on the incredible scene of discrimination in the Centocelle district in Rome: women isolated like unclean animals for the end of Ramadan celebrations. Who gave permission for this unacceptable demonstration? And what steps will be taken against this misogynistic barbarity?

To the Mayor of Rome Roberto Gualtieri To the President of Municipality V Mauro Caliste To the Equal Opportunities Commission of the Municipality of Rome and p.c. To the Minister for Equal Opportunities and the Family Eugenia Roccella To the Minister of the Interior Matteo Piantedosi Dear Mayor, dear President, dear members of the Equal Opportunities Commission, we are dismayed and shocked by the way in which the Municipality V of the Capital - Piazza dei Mirti, Centocelle district, a few metres from the school named after Artemisia Gentileschi - hosted the celebrations [...].

UK. Cass report: no more affirmative therapy for children with gender-related problems

Pediatrician Hilary Cass' final report on child transitions comes out: offering affirmative therapy was a failure. There is no evidence on the effectiveness of puberty blockers, which should never be prescribed except in rare cases. Hormones of the opposite sex should not be given before the age of 18, and even between 18 and 25 caution should be exercised. A definitive watershed

The long-awaited final report of the Cass Review, an independent review chaired by paediatrician Hilary Cass on public health services for children and young people with 'gender dysphoria', came out this morning. Its final report and recommendations were presented to NHS England. Here are the highlights. The condemnation for affirmative therapy is final, and determined by the absolute lack of evidence that puberty blockers and opposite-sex hormones bring real benefits to children suffering from 'gender incongruence [...]

Hormone therapies on children: doctors' insurances start to run away

The risk of million-dollar claims by minors undergoing irreversible treatment who regret the 'affirmative therapy' is too high: this is why some insurance companies no longer feel like covering 'gender medicine' under their policies

Those who resist the market for the transition of gender non-conforming girls and boys know very well that almost always the turning point - as was the case in the UK with Keira Bell and in the US with Chloe Cole - is the lawsuit brought by a former child-or treated-or with blockers and hormones against the doctors who administered the 'therapy': the detransitioners' side is decisive. Then the game becomes money versus money: the money collected by the gender clinics versus the money they end up [...].

Also in Wyoming stop the transition of minors

It is the 24th US state to ban drug and surgical treatments on the bodies of gender non-conforming girls and boys. Doctors and practitioners who continue to prescribe affirmative therapy will lose their licences. Decisive in the passage of the law was the testimony - and legal action - of detransitioner Chloe Cole. A regulation banning trans-indoctrination in schools was also approved.

From next 1 July, hormone treatments and gender transition surgery of minors will be banned in Wyoming. With the passage of the law, Senate File 99, Wyoming will join 23 other US states, from Alabama to West Virginia, that have banned or severely restricted gender-affirming medicine on minors. Under the law, doctors, pharmacists and other health care providers who provide gender-affirming care could have their licences suspended or revoked. Opposed by Governor Mark Gordon, [...]

The UK has decided: no more puberty blockers for children with dysphoria. It is the ultimate turning point (in memory of Yarden Silveira, 1998-2021, killed by 'sex change')

Not only the stop at the Tavistock Clinic: no British centre for 'gender non-conforming' girls and boys will be able to prescribe puberty blockers any more. The approach will have to be solely psychological: a resounding turning point that will have knock-on effects all over the world, including Italy. One of the biggest scandals in the history of medicine is finally coming to an end: will someone pay for the thousands of irreversibly damaged minors? Recalling here one among them who lost his life because of the unscrupulousness of doctors and surgeons

The British National Health Service (NHS) announces that PUBERTY BLOCKERS WILL NO LONGER BE ADMINISTRATED TO MINORS WITH GENDER Dysphoria: this is huge and heart-warming news after years and years of fighting on the front line. So not only is the dedicated service of the Tavistock Clinic in London closing, but no centre for the treatment of minors with dysphoria will use puberty blockers any more. The decision, described as 'historic', will have knock-on effects worldwide, [...].

WPATH scandal: 'therapies' for children with dysphoria are improvised and prescribed without real consent

The World Professional Transgender Health is considered the leading global scientific and medical authority on 'gender medicine': over the past decades its standards of care have shaped the guidelines, policies and practices of governments, medical associations, public health systems and private clinics worldwide, including the WHO. But leaked documents reveal the neglect of children -including children with severe mental disorders- subjected to improvised treatments, without taking into account the long-term consequences and without being sure they were clear about what they were doing

The news manages to shock even those who have long fought against affirmative therapy - puberty blockers, hormones and surgery - for gender non-conforming minors, such as psychoanalyst David Bell who exposed the scandal at the Tavistock Clinic in London: 'Even for me the contents of these files are shocking and disturbing,' he said. "The files suggest that some WPATH members are aware that gender-affirming treatments sometimes cause very serious harm and [...]

Bodies that don't count: Judith Butler returns to the fray

In a crowded lecture at the London School of Economics, the Californian philosopher and pioneer of gender theory reiterated the cornerstones of her thinking: the materiality of sex does not exist, women do not have the exclusive right to be women and must open up to other subjects starting with Queers and pro-Palestinians, transfeminism is anti-capitalist and anti-fa for a common fight against "fascist passions". And it attacks gender-critical feminism "allied with the Right".

At one point, it seemed that Judith Butler had changed her ways. The Californian philosopher, one of the most influential of the last thirty years, a theorist of gender performativity, who had arrived along a radical constructivist path to the negation of the material consistency of gendered bodies to the point of problematising and/or dismantling the subject 'woman' itself, had acknowledged: "My definition gave rise to two contrasting interpretations: for one, everyone chooses their own gender; for the second, we are all women. had recognised: 'my definition gave rise to two conflicting interpretations: for the first, everyone chooses their own gender; for the second, we are all completely determined by gender norms [...].

A new AGEDO?

The historic Parents of Homosexuals Association has worked extensively for the acceptance and non-discrimination of gays and lesbians and today dedicates many of its initiatives to children with gender dysphoria. With an essentially affirmative approach, that is, supportive of transition. In a recent webinar it was said perhaps one should break off relations with family members who object and that reasoning about the effects of puberty blockers is off topic. To mention just a few of the more surprising statements

AGEDO (Associazione Genitori Di Omosessuali - Association of Parents of Homosexuals) was an important organisation set up in 1993 on the initiative of Paola Dall'Orto, founder and president until 2007 and awarded the title of Cavaliere al merito della Repubblica in 2009 for her work: 'The aim,' she explained, 'was to help those parents who found themselves in the same situation as us: in a state of discomfort, often despair, and almost always ignorant about the subject [...] We thought we could help these parents to know what they were not [...].

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.

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, [...]

UK: 'Our children indoctrinated at school'. Parents of 'trans' children sue government
"You have ruined our children': families of minors who declare themselves to be 'of the opposite sex' are suing the British Department of Education for allowing trans-indoctrination in schools by Stonewall and other powerful LGBT organisations -the same propaganda that we would have liked to introduce with the Zan bill-. And for not having been informed in time about the children's discomfort. The initiative could sweep over the British government like an avalanche, which is running for cover by ordering an independent enquiry and drawing up new guidelines.
A group of parents of so-called 'trans children' are suing the UK Department of Education for steering their children towards the devastating medical transition. Specifically, the parents accuse the ministry of failing to provide guidance to teachers and doing nothing to prevent a 'harmful' gender ideology, pushed by LGBT pressure groups, from taking hold in thousands of schools. We have spoken about transpropaganda in schools many times: for more see here, and [...]

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 [...].

New Forstater case in UK: lawyer sues Stonewall for 'inducing discrimination'
Allison Bailey was allegedly mobbed and discriminated against by her law firm for expressing her opposition to gender self-certification or self-id. A lesbian and founder of the LGBT Alliance, she sued the firm and Stonewall as well. Who, she is convinced, actively worked for her "punishment".
Stonewall will face a court case for encouraging the law firm where Allison Bailey, a lesbian lawyer, works to issue a disciplinary measure against her just because she had criticised transgender activists. The lawyer filed a discrimination complaint inspired by the case of Maya Forstater, the researcher at the Center for Global Development in London who lost her job for expressing her opposition to gender self-certification (see here). On 10 June, an appeals court ruled that Maya Forstater had [...].

Stonewall backtracks and 'authorises' the use of the word mother
After losing agreements with some big companies, including the Health Service and the BBC - and therefore a lot of money - the UK's largest LGBT+ organisation moderately updates its guidelines for "inclusiveness": it will no longer be required to use terms like "pregnant person" or "person who has given birth" instead of mother. Change of course = no-bankruptcy
Stonewall has dropped legislation advising workplace equality organisations to remove the word 'mother' from their policies. The lobby announced that it would no longer reward with higher ranking scores employers who would adopt gender-neutral alternatives by starting to use "mother". Nancy Kelley, Stonewall's chief executive, denied in an interview that such a policy existed. "We are not interested in removing or deleting the [...]

British government breaks with Stonewall
The Department of Health breaks its agreement with the large LGBTQ organisation, paid hundreds of thousands of pounds to lobby, imposing the'use of pronouns and free access for anyone to women's spaces based on free gender identity. Great news for British women and for all of us.
The British Department of Health has broken its agreement with Stonewall: it will no longer use its consultancy (lavishly paid: more than £300,000 of taxpayers' money paid to the big organisation so far) to apply its diversity scheme in favour of LGBT staff. The Department of Health is the latest high-profile organisation to distance itself from the lobby group, which has been heavily criticised for its influence and intrusiveness into public policy. A Department spokeswoman said: 'The year [...]

The disappearance of women/2: this time from the British boardrooms
Thousands of large British companies will have to report the number of women on their boards, in part to assess pay differentials. Sheldon Mills, director of the FCA, the regulatory body overseeing the survey, proposes that males who perceive themselves as women should be included in the count, thus distorting the statistics. It is not difficult to understand why: Mills is also a leader of Stonewall, a powerful LGBT organisation that continues to dictate the law in the UK.
For those who still have doubts about the fact that gender identity and gender-neutral policies involve the elimination of women, after the pop example of the X Factor (see here), here is another rather sensational one. The Times writes that a thousand large British companies, including Unilever and Astrazeneca, are required to declare the percentage of women on their boards. The main reason is to assess and correct the gender pay gap, i.e. the difference in pay between women and [...]

I believed in Stonewall. But we have created a monster
The historic gay and lesbian rights organisation was set up, says former ambassador Kate Harris, to make the world a better place. But things turned out very badly
by Kate Harris, former Stonewall Ambassador and co-founder of LGB Alliance I used to work at American Express during the heyday of Stonewall's brilliant* campaign for equality for LGB people at work. As a "Stonewall ambassador" I was delighted and proud to support the Diversity Champions programme created in 2005. The equality index was only a small part of Stonewall's efforts to make employers aware that LGB people exist, and that their rights needed to be protected. There are [...]

Proudly lesbian, I no longer go to Pride
Essayist and radical black feminist and founder of the blog Sister Outrider, Claire Heuchan attacks the misogyny of the LGBT world, pornography and rainbow merchandising.
by Claire Heuchan I still remember my first Pride, almost a lifetime and a half ago. I was fifteen and spending a day in Glasgow with my mother when we saw the parade start from Queen Street. In the years since then, I have often wondered whether the choice of that street as a starting point was intentional or not. But at the time I wasn't familiar enough with gay culture, or the ironic claim of insults to put it [...]

How Stonewall is sacrificing gay rights. To do business
Why has Stonewall, the largest gay and lesbian rights organisation, allowed itself to be colonised by the transgender lobby, going so far as to persecute those for whom it was founded? Because it's good business. Follow the money!
Tumultuous change of wind in the UK, cradle of the Lgbtq+ rainbow. After the harsh attack on Stonewall by one of its founders, Matthew Parris, another strongly critical voice, that of the gay journalist and essayist Douglas Murray. He denounces the persecutory campaign of the historical association against gays and lesbians, to protect their rights, which it was founded in 1989. Today, says Murray, Stonewall is a business committee at the service of the trans lobby to intercept rivers of money and justify [...].
