UK: gender identity will no longer be discussed at school

A new crackdown by the Sunak government after the Cass report, which also warns of the risks of social transition of minors, the so-called 'alias identity' that has already been adopted by many Italian schools: in the classroom, it will no longer be taught that one can change sex and sex education will be calibrated according to age. And never without parental consent

After years and years of transactivists from associations such as Stonewall and Mermaids making the rounds with their sex education courses in English schools of all levels, Rishi Sunak's government announced today with Education Minister Gillian Keegan new mandatory guidelines for schoolchildren and students on these issues. Classrooms will no longer teach that you can change your gender identity, as has been the case until now [...]

From Gaza to western delivery rooms, Judith Butler sees fascists everywhere

Fascists, of course, we gender-critical feminists too, 'allies of the right and the Vatican'. The Californian intellectual, renouncing all philosophical subtlety, compiles a political agenda that coincides with the platform of the university students in struggle. And he calls for an alliance between trans people, antifa, the pro-Pal movement, the homeless, black people, migrants and even women - understood as one of many minorities - to build 'a radical democracy inspired by the ideals of socialism'. An account of the Bologna leg of his triumphant European tour

Perhaps today one could speak of the 'Butler Agenda': its platform coincides perfectly with the platform of struggle of the-students throughout the West, with little certainty as to whether the chicken or the egg was born first. Certainly Judith Butler is to all intents and purposes the mother of Gender Theory to which these student(s) (a minority anyway) enthusiastically adhere; in turn these student(s) with their mobilisations are a source of inspiration for Butler, their platforms are also a [...]

Not-Mother's Day

Natural motherhood is right-wing, biotech motherhood is left-wing because it is thought of as a right and not suffered as destiny: the diatribe on this issue between radical feminism and transfeminism could be summarised in this way. It's anything but new, but it has become radicalised. Not least because the context has changed so much: a baby boom is one thing, births at an all-time low is another

The other day Minister Eugenia Roccella was prevented from saying what she had to say, right or wrong, at the States General of Natality. The students who were protesting against her were allowed to express their demands - one of their delegates went on stage, and she also included Gaza in her speech, right or wrong - but this was evidently not enough because the minister was prevented from speaking anyway. Perhaps I am wrong, but if I were convinced of the [...]

Trans surgery increases suicide risk

A very recent study of 90 million patients shows that trans-operated people run a 'significantly higher risk of suicide, death, self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder' and require psychiatric support. Thus, the completion of the long and arduous transition with 'affirmative' surgery does not ensure the achievement of the hoped-for well-being

"Gender affirmation surgery is associated with a significantly higher risk of suicide, death, suicide/self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder than control groups in this real-world database. Since suicide is one of the most common causes of death among adolescents and middle-aged individuals, it is clear that we must work to prevent these unfortunate outcomes. This further reinforces the need for comprehensive psychiatric care in the years following surgery for [...]

Saman: 'their culture' as a mitigating factor

The girl's marriage was 'arranged and not forced' and in the judgement 'the culture of the offender must also be taken into account': the reasons for the sentence (signed by female judges) for the brutal murder of the young Pakistani girl leave one bewildered. As well as the mother's self-sexism that would be the material executor of the crime. At this rate, according to Unicef projections, girls will continue to be sold to men for at least the next 300 years

Pictured is a poster with Saman's face composed of photos of many women victims of male violence. The story of Saman Abbas is an open wound. Killed by her family three years ago, her concealed body found more than a year after her death. At the beginning of this year, the funeral, with great public participation. A few days ago came the grounds for the verdict in the first-instance trial of Saman's family last December: life imprisonment to [...].

A few words to Mr Gennarone (he doesn't deserve any more)

The essence of fascism is to prevent anyone from speaking out. Whoever calls a woman ****** intends to intimidate, devalue and above all silence her. Ergo: a sexist cannot call himself an anti-fascist because sexism is incompatible with antifascism.

A few words to rapper Gennarone, author of fine lyrics (e.g. 'Stile foggiano, la mia terra la amo, dall'appennino dauno alle terre del Gargano. Take my hand ready for the journey through the land we live in') who during the 1 May concert in Foggia among many other things said that 'Italy is living in the shadow of fascism thanks to that ***** of Giorgia Meloni'. Just to remind him that: a) the essence of all fascism and totalitarianism is to prevent anyone from [...].

On abortion only propaganda: 'Fake amendment, good for election campaign'

The recently approved paragraph authorising pro-life associations to enter counselling centres does not actually add to or change what is already provided for in Law 194. Marina Terragni and Francesca Izzo explain. And Pro Vita also hastens to clarify: we will not enter the consultatories. The topic is good for the political clash in view of the European elections. But the law remains as it is

It is sad to have to talk about abortion on command: abortion is a complex and painful experience for the vast majority of women. "For whose pleasure am I aborting?": Carla Lonzi summarised the issue in this way. It is very sad that the issue is agitated in the election campaign, on both sides, and that we feel obliged to say something. In recent days the right wing has proposed and pushed through with confidence an amendment to the PNRR that would authorise pro-life [...].

Letter to Rishi Sunak: we need a public enquiry into the influence of transgender ideology

One hundred and thirty British MPs, doctors, psychiatrists, academics and detransitioners - among them JK Rowling - have written a letter to the Prime Minister calling on him to examine the 'pervasive influence' of transgender ideology in schools and the National Health Service and to ascertain responsibility for the harm done to thousands of girls and boys

"Rishi, if you read this petition please do the right thing and urgently initiate a public enquiry. The welfare of our children depends on it." Writing this is psychotherapist James Esses, coordinator of the Biological Reality Statement and one of the signatories to an appeal to the British Prime Minister after the major scandal of the treatment of 'confused and vulnerable' children by medical professionals, made evident by Hilary Cass's report. Among the first signatories is JK [...]

'We were wrong': pioneer of puberty blockers admits damage
Susan Bradley, a Canadian psychiatrist who founded a clinic for 'dysphoric' minors in the 1970s and an authority in this field today states that the switch from psychological therapy to drugs was a big mistake. Because their effects are severe and not reversible, because those treatments are 'authoritarian' and experimental. And because in 9 out of 10 cases children's dysphoria is only temporary and masks other disorders.
In an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation, Dr Susan Bradley, a Canadian psychiatrist and a pioneer in the treatment of gender dysphoria in children, spoke out against the popular model of affirming children's transgender identities and treating them with puberty-blocking drugs, a practice she had participated in in the past. Bradley had opened a paediatric clinic in 1975 for children suffering from gender dysphoria, a profound sense of unease concerning the [...]

UK: Inquiry book published on the Tavistock case, clinic that 'cured' autistic children by transitioning them
BBC journalist Hanna Barnes struggled hard to find a publisher: the censorship we all know. But she finally made it. And now her sensational essay on the scandal of the Tavistock, a clinic for the transition of minors closed by the British National Health Service: puberty blockers casually prescribed to preadolescents with autism, trauma or psychological disorders. For years some staff tried to raise the alarm, but were intimidated and silenced. This is an entirely political issue, because the health of children is at stake. Thousands throughout the West lured by hammering trans-propaganda
Hanna Barnes is a BBC journalist. After conducting a thorough investigation of the Tavistock clinic in London, a centre for the gender transition of minors, and having discovered the wickedness of that service, she decided to turn it into a book. But it was not at all easy to find a publisher willing to publish it. Not because Barnes's work was not documented and rigorous, but because no publishing house could withstand the likely accusation of transphobia that the publication of the [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...].
