Hormone-addicted children: an in vivo trial. Who will pay for it?

Hilary Cass, the British paediatrician who produced a monumental report on 'affirmative therapy' for minors does not mince words: those children 'were used as footballs'. There has never been any evidence that puberty blockers work, that they reduce suicide risk, that they increase patients' well-being: far from it. Will those who, in the absence of scientific certainty, have inflicted these treatments, who have even persecuted so many people of goodwill determined to expose the scandal in the name of truth, go unpunished? Keira Bell, the best known detransitioner, hopes for criminal consequences

L’inglese Keira Bell, ex-paziente della Tavistock Clinic di Londra, è sicuramente la più celebre tra le destransitioner. Dopo la pubblicazione della Cass Review dice a The Times che vorrebbe veder partire procedimenti penali perché le bambine-i trattati dalla clinica con puberty blocker e ormoni possano finalmente avere giustizia. Keira oggi ha 27 anni, giudica il trattamento a cui è stata sottoposta -blocker, ormoni, rimozione dei seni- “sperimentale nella migliore delle ipotesi, distruttivo nella peggiore” e crede che i professionisti abbiano […]

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 [...].

The British prime minister: 'We will guarantee women their reserved spaces'
Vigorous change of wind in the UK after years of prevailing Lgbtq+ misogyny: against the invasion of toilets, women's locker rooms and safe houses by men who self-identify as women, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak promises a reform of the Equality Act. As demanded by a petition signed by over 100,000 people, it will have to be based on biological sex and not on 'gender identity'. Also announced are new guidelines on'sex education and alias careers at school: decisive issues in view of the upcoming elections
British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has declared that he will change the Equality Act 2010 to protect single-sex spaces reserved for women, stating that biological sex is 'fundamental and important'. The move follows concerns about the lack of clarity in current legislation on the issue, which could allow so-called MtoF trans people to access spaces reserved for women even though they are biologically male. "I have been very clear that when it comes to issues [...]

UK: towards a legal distinction between 'born women' and trans people
The British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak takes a decisive step backwards on so-called 'trans rights' in the skin of women. And instructs the Minister for Equal Opportunities to prepare a change in the legal definition of sex by distinguishing it from 'perceived' sex. Even when the 'gender change' certificate has been obtained
British Minister for Women and Equal Opportunities Kemi Badenoch Rishi Sunak wants to create a legal distinction between women by birth and men who 'become female' on documents after obtaining a Gender Recognition Certificate (GRC). The new British prime minister has given a swerve to solve the problems caused by perceived legal gender recognition that does not match the reality of bodies: it was a few days ago the news about the independent enquiry [...]

USA. Parents sue schools that unknowingly encourage girls' and boys' transitions
This is happening in Kettle Moraine (Wisconsin), where the school district is encouraging 'non-conforming' minors to adopt names and pronouns of the opposite sex without informing their parents. The position of families claiming their educational rights - together with that of paediatricians opposed to gender affirming 'therapies' and athletes against trans people in their sports - will have considerable weight in the presidential elections: on these issues Biden has already lost Virginia.
Two groups of parents have sued the Kettle Moraine (Wisconsin) school district for encouraging underage students confused about their 'gender identity' to change names and pronouns at school without parental consent (career aka. see here). The lawsuit joins those of young female athletes deprived of potential sports wins and scholarships for admitting 'trans-identified' males into their sports (see here) and pediatricians threatened with 'discrimination' if they don't immediately initiate the [...]

California, Washington... soon to be male prisoners in women's jails across the US
A new Californian law allows males who self-identify as women to serve their sentences in women's prisons. Without hormones or surgery. Ditto in Washington - and so in Canada and wherever self-id is in force. If the US Congress passes the Equality Act, this will happen all over the US.
If something is written in the Wall Street Journal, perhaps it is easier to believe. Well, the prestigious newspaper dedicates an article to the absurd situation in Californian prisons: male prisoners, with their male bodies intact, who call themselves women and ask to be transferred to women's prisons on the basis of Bill 132, in force since 1 January. A situation which, if the US Senate approves the Equality Act enacted by President Joe Biden, could soon affect women's prisons all over [...].

I was the fastest girl in Connecticut. Until I had to compete with men
An omertous silence covers the scandal of the invasion of women's sports by male 'ultra-bodies'. But at last some female athletes, destined for certain defeat, are starting to speak out.
Anna Vanbellinghen is a Belgian weightlifter and at the next Olympic Games in Tokyo she will have to face New Zealand's Laurel Hubbard, the first trans Olympic athlete, among her competitors. Vanbellinghen says that having any chance with Hubbard is impossible, that this is "a bad joke" for female athletes. She is the first of the Olympians to break the silence, and so far the only one. Vanbellinghen understands that trans athletes need to be able to compete and hopes that a solution will be found, but she can't [...]

Biden administration wipes out women and girls
Without any public debate and against the opinion of the majority of Americans, President Joe Biden is pushing ahead with replacing the word 'sex' with 'gender identity' in all administrative acts and documents, with serious impact on the lives of women and girls. All over the world, liberals and progressives are pursuing this same goal in the service of the trans-lobby.
It is happening. It's as bad as it looks and no one should be in any doubt. Everything Janice Raymond predicted in 1979 has come true. Everything you see published on the 11th Hour blog is reality. This is not at all a question of plot. On his first day in office, President Biden signed Executive Order 13988 on preventing and combating discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation. Many of us, myself included, naively assumed that this would [...]

Sign up now, in time for 8 March! From women around the world to the US Senate: Don't pass the Equality Act! Gender identity' erases us
A letter to be signed immediately! (In the United States, the Equality Act, which has already passed the House of Representatives, is about to be approved in the Senate. As Feminist Post has repeatedly reported, the Equality Act, strongly supported by the Biden administration, effectively replaces the concept of "sex" with that of "gender identity", erasing women, girls and children and making being a woman a "choice" available to men. Declaration on Women's Sex-Based Rights, which has a network of 15,000 adherents [...]

Trans rights: a major issue in American politics
The American Democratic Party is being torn apart by the Andrew Cuomo affair, the New York state governor accused of harassment by three women, and by other important issues such as the diatribe between moderates and Sanders' left wing on the failure to raise the minimum wage. But it regains its unity on the issue of transgender rights, to which Joe Biden has been devoting extraordinary attention since the very first hours of his mandate, to the point of threatening sanctions against those countries that have [...]

Equality according to Biden: the right of men to call themselves women (and to win in all women's sports)
And Kamala? Nothing to say? "On social media, women have expressed relief at the end of the Trump era. Even Canadians have posted pictures of Kamala Harris and Jill Biden in outfits that represent progress. No true feminist would wear a black suit and red tie, after all. What America needs now are those jewel tones. I can't fathom what trauma we have suffered from seeing an egomaniac tweeting himself into the prison of the Internet ... If anything, it offered us the cue [...]
