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.

The Istanbul Convention belongs to women! The Right does not obstruct Europe's ratification
By abstaining from yesterday's vote, preliminary to the European accession to the most important treaty against violence against women, the MEPs of the Lega and Fratelli d'Italia gave in to the pressure of the Pro Vita, who read that document as anti-family and pro-gender (the same concerns expressed by Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan). But Italy has already acceded to the Convention and apparently this is not the government's orientation. And Lgbtq claims have nothing to do with it. Women between two misogynist fires: religious extremism and queer instrumentalisation
Yesterday, a resolution was passed in Europe calling on the EU to accede to the Istanbul Convention (2011), the most important international treaty -legally binding- against violence against women and domestic violence. Italy has already ratified the Convention in 2013, while 6 European countries (Bulgaria, Czechia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania and Slovakia) have not yet done so. Yesterday's vote is preliminary to the accession of the entire EU to the Convention. Incredibly, the MEPs of Fratelli d'Italia and the Lega abstained from the vote. [...]

Feminism and the Right
In response to Julie Bindel, who considers the wall erected by the transactivist left but also the risks of an alliance with the right: in Italy, the historical novelty -a right-wing woman premier, Giorgia Meloni- further complicates the picture. What to do then? What is happening in Spain over the horrible Ley Trans perhaps points to a good way forward for everyone
Julie Bindel and Harvey Jeni take the bull by the horns: given that for too long there has been no possibility of dialogue with the left, can radical and gender-critical feminism look to the right without taking risks? This is a theme that we in Italy are well aware of and that agitated the entire election campaign that ended with the landslide victory of a right-wing woman, Giorgia Meloni, who has never declared herself a feminist. The fact that today the right in Italy is [...]

Women attacked from left and right: the ash on the head of the New York Times
As the organ of the liberals and woke culture, the great US newspaper has been undertaking a vigorous change of course for a few months now, admitting its own excesses and the misogyny of the new progressive course committed to wiping out women. While waiting for the self-critical wind to blow in Europe too
by Pamela Paul Perhaps it makes sense that women - complacent and pleasant-looking creatures, selfless and just as pretty - were the ones who finally brought our polarised country together. Because the far right and the far left have found the one thing they can agree on: women don't matter. The position of the right is best known, the movement has been aggressively dedicated for decades to depriving women of basic rights. Thanks also to two judges [...]

US Congress promotes a Women's Bill of Rights inspired by feminist texts
To be able to call themselves women, not to be reduced to 'menstruators' or 'holes in the front', to have their own reserved spaces: the American Republicans take on the resistance of feminism against woke progressivism and propose a law of historic significance. Women's associations, from WoLF to WDI, approve. But dividing them remains the issue of abortion, with the Supreme Court ruling in the home stretch.
While the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), America's largest civil rights association, is campaigning to argue that barring male sex offenders from women's prisons is discriminatory and unconstitutional, on 19 May, a group of Republican representatives in the US Congress, first signatory Debbie Lesko, introduced a resolution to introduce a Women's Bill of Rights, in order to legally define what a 'woman' is, recognise that women and [...]

The left, the right, the veil
Senate President Maria Elena Alberti Casellati is a distinguished lady with a polite smile and a bombastic name. Politically, she is on the right. In other times we would have defined her as a conservative Christian Democrat. She is also a stranger to feminism, which did not prevent her, in her inaugural speech, from speaking firmly and non-rhetorically about the phenomenon of misogynistic violence. I happened to think of her again after the webinar on Veil and Freedom with Marina Terragni, Sara Punzo and Maryan Ismail. [...]

When I 'returned' to being a woman. And as a transman I found myself a feminist.
A wonderful testimony from our new contributor Valentina Beoni. When I was still identifying as a transgender man, I often reacted badly to comments on social media and in particular those from radical feminists (whom I called "TERF"). I'd even fallen out with Magdalen Berns, a gender critical British youtuber who passed away in 2019, because at her statement "you are not a male" I'd heaped insults on her. As soon as I decided to stop transitioning I [...]

FEMINISM IS NEITHER LEFT-WING NOR RIGHT-WING: IT STANDS ALONE
Feminism is neither right-wing nor left-wing. To anyone who doubts the continuing influence of the American Empire, the international response to Ruth Bader Ginsberg's death should give pause for thought. Twitter in Britain - always focused on American events - was immediately filled with feverish speculation about who might replace her on the US Supreme Court. Glasgow City's women's football team announced that they would put her name on a banner as a tribute to [...]
