Holland: if you block the development of girls and boys you push them to become trans

The protocol - pausing puberty to allow minors to 'choose' their sex - they invented. But even the Dutch now admit that in 9 out of 10 cases blockers no longer give time to 'decide' but are the start of the transition. A self-fulfilling prophecy. And that the effects of these drugs are by no means reversible

Amsterdam University Clinic UMC, a pioneer in the use of puberty blockers, has admitted that children taking these drugs may find themselves locked into increased medicalisation. The admission comes following the publication earlier this month of a new retrospective study examining 20 years of hormonal interventions known as the 'Dutch protocol', conducted on 1,766 children and adolescents between 1972 and 2018 at the famed Amsterdam clinic and published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine. But [...]

GenerAzioneD, Italian association of parents of minors who define themselves as 'trans', is founded

A guidance and information site to support and accompany mothers and fathers going through this complex experience: testimonies, interviews, and links to contribute to an in-depth debate that today does not find space in the mainstream media

The cultural, apolitical, non-denominational and non-profit association GenerAzioneD has been established. The association's primary aim is to inform about the problems of gender dysphoria/incongruence in children, adolescents and young adults. Through the dissemination of testimonies, news, national and international articles in translation and the promotion of opportunities for discussion, GenerAzioneD aims to foster the transparency necessary to ensure the best possible care for those affected. GenerAzioneD was in fact born from the meeting of some parents who shared the experience of having children [...]

Transgender' children: it's social contagion. Even the largest trans association admits it

Tik Tok, Youtube and others: the president of WPATH, the world association for trans health, forced to admit that influencers play a large part in the epidemic of transitions among minors, a phenomenon denied by Western progressives who brand every alarm as transphobia. But they do not stop pushing for medicalisation and early surgery

The Honourable Alessandro Zan, first signatory of the infamous bill on gender identity, which ended up in the knighthouse, had denied the dizzying increase in cases of transition of girls and boys, calling the news a 'dangerous statement'. In 2021 there were already numerous statistics indicating the extent of the problem, but apparently Zan was not aware of it - which is unacceptable - or pretended not to know, or more likely ideologically believed that the mere fact of posing the question should be considered proof [...].

The problem is not rooming-in but the loneliness of mothers

After the sad story of the baby who died next to his mother at the Pertini in Rome, for some the solution is to keep the babies in the nurseries and not in the room. But rooming-in was strongly advocated by women who used to be separated from their babies in hospital. It is, if anything, a question of allowing new mothers to have a spouse or wife to assist them. Especially in times of understaffing

Starting with the very painful case of the newborn baby who died at the Pertini hospital in Rome -probably by accidental suffocation, the judiciary will ascertain the causes: it could also be 'cot death' or something else- many and many conclude that rooming-in is a dangerous and wrong practice and that babies should stay in nurseries. I remember, however, that in the past women fought hard for rooming-in and for more than obvious reasons: not to be separated from the newborn after the long cohabitation [...].

Sex and gender: JK Rowling's essay

In her text, the writer explains in detail the reasons why she felt the need to address the trans issue, defying the violence of activists. A manifesto-writer for gender critical feminism translated into Italian by Alessandra Asteriti

Attacking JK Rowling can now also be a business. The latest initiative is that of a young Canadian imbecile art book creator who has decided to de-rowling Harry Potter by publishing a special edition of the saga on the cover of which the author's name disappears: $170 per copy for a despicable abuse of power. Let him keep all the copies in stock. Back to the serious stuff: in June 2020 JK Rowling published an essay on her website detailing her position [...].

Femelliste, a gender critical 'sister' platform is born in France

Harassed, insulted, mocked, threatened: French feminists have collected and catalogued the attacks transactivists have suffered for years. And they have set up an information and training site against the dictatorship of transgender ideology

The name of the site is a play on words that cannot be translated into Italian. The site's creators inform that it has already been used by animal feminists such as Posie Parker, Nicole Roelens and the Boucherie Abolition collective. It would make one think of anti-specism, it is actually more and in some respects a little different. 'Femelle' in French means the female animal (for the human one, the same word as woman, femme, is used). Since they fight for sexual rights [...]

The debate on puberty blockers also opens in Italy - finally!

Breaking the silence is the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, which is calling for an open scientific debate on these treatments, which it defines as 'experimental', not supported by adequate studies and at great ethical risk because they predetermine the fate of girls and boys

Much later than in the Great North of Europe, Great Britain, Australia, and some US states - which have abruptly put the brakes on the use of puberty blockers as a 'therapy' for girls and boys with gender non-conforming behaviour - Italy too is finally breaking its silence with a letter addressed to the government by the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, which calls for caution and the opening of a public scientific discussion. Below we reproduce interviews conducted by Marina Terragni for Il Foglio and [...].

Italian psychoanalysts: stop puberty blockers

The Italian Psychoanalytic Society criticises puberty blockers for children: dangerous and experimental treatment. And joins gender critical feminists and parents in calling for scientific data and a public debate on the best treatment for children suffering from gender dysphoria

For years we gender critical feminists have been fighting against the scandal of the medicalisation of children in the name of gender identity. And for years we have been branded as fascists, reactionaries, bigots. Today at last an accredited Italian scientific society, the Italian Psychoanalytic Society (SPI), is taking a stand, joining us in raising a cry of alarm: the use of puberty blockers is an experimental treatment that has no solid scientific basis, and causes serious side effects. Above all, in most cases dysphoria [...]

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, [...]

Lesbians against the transition of girls and boys
Lesbians United was set up in the USA to raise the alarm about the serious risks of the early medicalisation of children with 'gender dysphoria'. Which, they say, "is a scam". In the hope that the American gay and lesbian movement, which is highly critical of the trans-industry, will finally break its silence and listen.
Lesbians United, a US lesbian organisation, launched a public information campaign entitled "Understanding the transition of minors" through social media and the organisation's website. Lesbians United's social media posts are accompanied by colourful graphics, with targeted slogans such as 'Gender dysphoria is a scam' and 'Join the movement against medical malpractice'. Their targets include pharmaceutical companies, gender clinics and the American Psychiatric Association. "Lesbians are being pushed to 'transition,'" reads [...]

Spain. Psychologist denounced by transactivists. She risks suspension
Carola López Moya, a feminist and leftist, thinks that people with dysphoria should accept themselves by breaking gender cages and without medicalisation. T associations have denounced her, saying her approach is "conversion therapy". She risks a fine of up to 120,000 euros as well as suspension of her activity.
While in countries that were the first to adopt medical protocols (puberty blockers, cross-test hormones) for the transition of minors - such as Sweden and Norway - there is a return to the psychological approach in the first instance, in other countries where peak transitions have recently been achieved, talk therapy is still considered conversion therapy. This Spanish case is exemplary. Solidarity with Carola López Moya. A left-wing feminist psychologist and critic of gender identity is the first [...]

No longer 'female' or 'male', but 'assigned-o F or M at birth': the bible of psychiatry yields to the trans-trend
The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders -DSM-V-, the most widely used by psychiatrists, adapts its terminology to the demands of transgender activists. Favouring the 'affirmative' approach and the use of puberty blockers, hormones and surgery for those suffering from gender dysphoria.
The diagnostic manual most commonly used by psychiatrists yields to the demands of transgender activists, replacing for example 'born female' with 'individual assigned female at birth'. A language that is no longer neutral and that more easily leads to puberty blockers, hormones and surgery. The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders - also known as the DSM - will use the new terminology to describe 'gender dysphoria'. This is the language used by transgender activists under the banner of the so-called 'affirmative model' of care, [...]

Bullying and social contagion behind the epidemic of 'trans children' in British schools
Children who come home from school saying they are 'trans' often have autism or learning difficulties and have been bullied. In the UK, parents denounce the role of peers and teachers and accuse schools of failing in their duty of care towards vulnerable pupils.
Since we founded Our Duty in 2018, we have collected the experiences of parents with children who would like to put themselves on a path that ends in mutilation, sterilisation, loss of sexual function and regret, throughout their lives. Their testimonies reveal how children are encouraged to embrace a transgender identity by other pupils, with the connivance of teachers and often deliberately without the knowledge of their parents. [...] We begin with the testimony of a mother of a boy [...].

Mothers of hormone-treated children: their loneliness, their pain
When resisting chemical and surgical 'therapies' and calling for a more cautious approach to daughters and sons with dysphoria, these parents find themselves against everyone: friends, schools, doctors, therapists, politicians, media and culture. On how many fronts can one fight alone? American psychiatrist Miriam Grossman, who treats the despair of these families, tells the story.
Keira Bell, with her battle against the large London gender clinic Tavistock, has become the symbol of the thousands of young women mutilated and damaged for life because they do not conform to the stereotypes of femininity. Today we tell you what happens to parents of girls like Keira Bell through the words of a psychiatrist who has one of these mothers under treatment. Miriam Grossman is a child psychiatrist who has been working for decades on the problem of the sexualisation of children -of [...]

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 [...].

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 [...]

Finland: stop puberty blockers for dysphoric minors
As in the UK and Sweden, the experimental nature and non-reversibility of hormone treatments on children are recognised, and the new guidelines reserve them only for extreme cases, favouring psychological treatments. In Italy too, it is time to think again.
By Wesley J. Smith First it was the British, then the Swedes. And now the transgender moral panic is receiving various objections from the Finns as well. Finnish medical guidelines are now against the use of most puberty-blocking drugs and the transition of adolescents, except in particularly severe cases, and even then only in a research setting. Firstly, it was noted that most [...]

No more hormones for children: the next battle
Also in Italy the transitions of minors are increasing. If the Zan bill were to become law, the practice would be normalised. But it is gender stereotypes that must be demolished, not the bodies of girls and boys.
If the Zan bill were to become law, the introduction of the concept of gender identity into the criminal law would have some almost immediate consequences: from the request for self-id or self-certification of gender - the proposal of the MIT (Movement for Trans Identity) is already ready - to the normalisation of the practice of the uterus for rent - here too, a law is already ready to introduce the so-called 'solidarity' surrogacy that will facilitate the explicitly commercial one. Then there is the question of the hormonisation of girls and boys to start them off on the transition, a practice that has already [...]

Autistic boys and girls pushed to see themselves as trans people
Almost half of the children who come to gender identity clinics suffer from autism spectrum disorders, but are diagnosed with dysphoria and receive hormone treatment. As trans-propaganda is also invading 'neurodiversity'. Re-medicalising it
Christian Wilton-King, author of this article, has worked in the field of special educational needs for almost two decades. Christian believes strongly in inclusive practice for all and is particularly committed to creating a more inclusive world for people with autism. Christian became concerned that children and young people who "didn't fit in" were being encouraged to see themselves as transgender, and after some of his comments in a private Facebook group were reported to the Education Workforce [...]

Finland. Children with gender dysphoria, new guidelines: more psychological help, less hormones
Psychological therapies, for years stigmatised as conversion therapies, are once again the first option for girls with gender dysphoria in Finland. Hormones for minors have come to a halt in many western countries. And in Italy?
Many of the pioneering countries in the hormone treatment of children are revising their guidelines to start the transition. In Sweden, under-16s can no longer be treated with drugs; in the UK, after the landmark Keira Bell ruling (see here), a court ruling is required; in Finland, psychotherapeutic treatments are again being favoured, with hormone therapy being used only as a last resort. In Italy the use of puberty blockers on children is allowed with a simple [...].
