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 [...]

Mayor Beppe Sala's 'gift' to Pride

From now on, in Milan, the birth certificates of children of 'homogenous couples' will be automatically registered, including those born from surrogacy. Although the law and subsequent rulings firmly condemn the practice and point the way to 'adoption' for the 'intended' parent. But the registry office is the responsibility of the State, not of local administrations. And the Milanese have never been asked about it: all the critical aspects of a unilateral and very glamorous decision that could also present profiles of unconstitutionality

'We have restarted the recognition of children born in Italy by homogenous couples': the words with which Mayor Beppe Sala announced his personal 'gift' to Pride initially caused some confusion. In fact, children born 'in Italy' on the initiative of - and not 'by' - same-sex couples are only the children of women united with other women. The children of male couples are born in Canada, California or other procreative tourism destinations, but not in Italy [...].

USA: how gender ideology is affecting doctors' training
An article in the Economist denounces the infiltration of gender identity ideology into US medical schools. Which focus on the free affirmation of gender. For fear of transactivist protests. But also out of ignorance about the progress of medical research and over-reliance on the mainstream media.
The Economist published an article on the infiltration of gender identity ideology into US medical schools. The testimonies of whistleblowing students and lecturers highlight several problems, all of which can be traced back to the imposition of 'gender affirmation' as the only way to cure dysphoria. For example, the side effects of drugs prescribed even to children are concealed. In general, future paediatricians and family doctors are instructed to introduce children and young people who say they feel 'in the body [...].

Transition of children-i: how many are 'convinced' on TikTok?
Videos with the #039;hashtag #trans viewed more than 26 billion times. Young influencers celebrating their "recovery" after a double mastectomy. The social network most frequented by young people proposes the medical transition as cool and transgressive. Sex change becomes the new rebellion
While we read everywhere that TikTok was the most downloaded - and most profitable - app of 2021 worldwide, the Daily Mail published an article on the role of the Chinese social network in the increase of girls saying they feel "trans" in British schools. According to The Mail on Sunday's analysis, videos with the hashtag #Trans have been viewed more than 26 billion times. This is mostly material posted by very young "transgender" influencers giving advice on how to get surgeries [...]

Story of a detransitioner called Carol
'I was simply a lesbian, but I didn't accept it'. Her story demonstrates the dangers of a 'gender affirmative' model of care that accepts patients' self-diagnosis of being trans, standard practice in American transgender medicine.
Carol had long suspected that her daily life in rural California would be easier if she were a man. Yet she was amazed at how true this was. As a 'butch' (masculine) woman, (and 'not very smiley') she had regularly been treated with mild contempt, she says. After a double mastectomy and a few months of testosterone - which gave her facial hair and a gravelly voice - 'people, cashiers, everyone, suddenly became so damn [...].

Detransition: first scientific study
Conducted by psychiatrist Lisa Littman, who interviewed 100 detransitioners, the research highlights the complexity of these experiences. Doubts about the usefulness and effectiveness of pharmacological and surgical "therapies" are increasingly well-founded. Let us see why
After a year-long scientific evaluation, the results of the first systematic research on detransitioners have been published. The study by the American psychiatrist Lisa Littman is entitled "Subjects treated for gender dysphoria with medical and/or surgical transition who subsequently underwent detransition: Survey of 100 detransitioners" (full text here) Unlike previous studies, this research is conducted exclusively on people who underwent medicalisation for a diagnosis of gender dysphoria, and subsequently had [...].

Gender identity as seen by a young woman
Following the publication of an official communiqué on Facebook by 'feminists' and Alessandro Zan's re-launch in view of the debate on his bill in the Chamber today, 27 October, I felt it was my duty to make a few things clear out of respect for all women who, like us, do not feel part of this 'feminism'.
I have decided to respond point by point to this communiqué which once again does not fail to misinform. I strongly believe that the women who signed this communiqué do not have a clear understanding of the concept of 'gender identity' which has developed and spread in youth culture over the last few years and which has little to do with the protection of homosexuals and transsexuals. Gender is a social construct that is applied to women and men according to their sex [...]

Marina Terragni: 'There is a desire to erase women, their bodies, their difference'.
An interview with writer Marina Terragni: Zan bill, the language of inclusion, feminism and transphobia. "I am not a gender, I am a woman".
Original article here Marina Terragni corrects me straight away: 'I am not a historic feminist, I am simply a feminist'. For some time, before the DDL Zan (a bill presented by Italian deputy Alessandro Zan) matter became current in Italy, Terragni - writer and philosophy lecturer on contract - has been dealing with one of the most controversial issues in the western feminist world, gender identity: a concept that has divided feminists in two, those who believe that the category [...].

Marina Terragni: 'There is a desire to give women, their hearts, their difference'.
Entrevista con la escritora sobre la Decreto de Ley Zan, el lenguaje de la inclusión, el feminismo y la transfobia. "No soy un género, soy una mujer".
Artículo original aquí Marina Terragni me corrige inmediatamente: "No soy una feminista histórica, soy feminista y punto". Desde mucho antes de que el tema se pusiera de actualidad en Italia con el Ddl Zan, Terragni -que es escritora, y profesora de filosofía- se ha ocupado de la cuestión más controvertida del mundo feminista occidental, la identidad de género: un concepto que ha divisido a las feministas en dos, las que creen que la categoría de mujer debe replantearse y ampliarse [...]

Hormones for children: we can no longer remain silent. Appeal-denunciation by French intellectuals against 'the serious drift'.
Some fifty doctors, psychiatrists, thinkers and feminists are rebelling against the 'ideological stranglehold on children's bodies' and the mythology of transgender children. One day, they explain, we may regret having remained silent in the face of this 'theft of childhood', a medical and ethical scandal.
As we have already reported (see here) in many Western countries there is a sharp slowdown in the face of children's transitions, despite the recent "pilatesque" sentence on the Keira Bell case in the UK (see here). A further signal comes from France: together with the Observatoire des discours idéologiques sur l'enfant et l'adolescent, a group of professionals and researchers on childhood (doctors, psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, lawyers, judges, public school teachers, philosophers, sociologists, etc.) about fifty personalities from that country are protesting against the discourse on the "self-determination" of [...].

Hormones to children: UK judges wash their hands of them. Court of Appeal ruling on Keira Bell case
In response to the Tavistock Clinic's appeal on the Keira Bell ruling, the Court threw the ball back to the doctors: it is they, not the courts, who must decide whether a minor is able to give consent to experimental 'therapy' that blocks development and initiates transition. But the debate is now open. And the fear of lawsuits by repentant minors -detransitioners- induces the medical class to caution.
The English Court of Appeal has partially overturned the judgement that had given right to the young detransitioner Keira Bell (here is her story) against the Tavistock Clinic that, when she was 16 years old, had hastily introduced her to therapy with puberty blockers. With a pilatesque and merely formalistic judgement, the Court threw the ball back to the doctors: it is up to them, and not to the courts, to establish whether a minor can access this 'therapy' with hormone blockers. It must be the doctors and not [...]

Hormones for children: the world revolts
Arkansas, and soon Texas and Tennessee. Sweden, Finland, UK, Australia: the number of western countries abandoning drug treatment for 'gender non-conforming' children is growing. And the prestigious Lancet is calling for a reconsideration of these 'therapies' which continue to be prescribed in Italy. It's time to give battle
An article in the prestigious Lancet Child & Adolescent Health (see here) proposes more caution in the use of puberty blockers on children diagnosed as gender dysphoric. According to Lancet Child & Adolescent Health, further research is needed to determine the best treatment for children who have received this diagnosis, particularly for those in whom the disorder did not manifest until after puberty. Gender is a highly politicised issue, and any scientific article that poses a threat to mainstream narratives [...]

FtM and MtF, the two faces of transition
More women than men are transitioning - indeed, more girls than boys - reversing the proportions of the past. But the two apparently different phenomena do not emerge from the phallogocentrism and normativity of the male gaze. The fight against gender stereotypes needs to be intensified. Especially for the sake of minors
The phenomenon of transition appears to have profoundly changed in the last thirty years. The main change - though not the only one - concerns the biological sex of the people who decide to transition, which is now more females than males. Female-to-male FtMs were once an absolute rarity. The proportions were roughly one FtM for every hundred MtF, and even then they were two worlds anthropologically different and distant from each other. Today, FtMs make up the clear majority [...].

FtM and MtF, the two sides of transition
Today, more women than men - or rather, more girls than boys - are in transition, reversing the proportions of the past. But the two apparently different phenomena do not escape the phallogocentrism and normativity of the male gaze. The fight against gender stereotypes must be intensified. Above all, for the sake of minors.
The phenomenon of transition appears to have changed profoundly over the last thirty years. The main change - though not the only one - concerns the biological sex of the people who decide to transition, today more females than males. Once upon a time, female-to-male FtMs were an absolute rarity. The proportions were roughly one FtM for every hundred MtF, and even then they were two anthropologically different and distant worlds. Today FtMs constitute the clear majority of early transitions -7-8 cases out of 10- and [...]
