Mail-bombing to Repubblica: Unacceptable misinformation on puberty blockers

In an unacceptable article -without any reference to scientific data- Michela Marzano says that puberty blockers would be 'temporary and reversible' and would protect against suicide, but this is disproved by numerous studies.

Text for a mail-bombing, to be sent to the editor Maurizio Molinari m.molinari@repubblica.it Dear Director Molinari, we read Michela Marzano's article, entitled 'Nobody touches gender identity', published in your newspaper on Sunday 5 February. And we cannot fail to note with dismay that the author tackles the very delicate issue of 'dysphoric' minors without any scientific reference, claiming among other things that 'the suspension' induced by drugs that block puberty 'is temporary and reversible', that recourse to such drugs 'allows [...].

Birth from a dead 'surrogate mother

A professor at the University of Oslo proposes using the bodies of women in irreversible comas, which can be damaged without ethical complications, to carry out pregnancies for others. But also men in a vegetative state (so feminists don't get angry) by grafting embryos into their livers. And children? Theme not considered

It may have been inspired by Habla con ella, Pedro Almodovar's film in which the young dancer Alicia, in a coma due to an accident, becomes pregnant by Benigno, the nurse caring for her. Anna Smajdor, Professor of Medical Bioethics University of Oslo, takes up and elaborates on a suggestion made in 2000 by Israeli researcher Rosalie Ber "to circumvent the moral problems of gestational surrogacy" by using women in a persistent vegetative state (PVS) as surrogate wombs. To the practice she gives the [...]

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 [...].

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 [...].

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 [...]

2022, the year the West erased women
According to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, radical critic of Islam, subjugating fundamentalists and Western transactivist progressivism are de facto allies: both endanger women and threaten post-Enlightenment ideals
If 2022 was the year of the 'woman', it was a story with two different final chapters: one hopeful, the other less so. The first is set in a faraway country, where an archaic and theocratic regime threatens to be overthrown by women throwing off their hijabs and demanding their emancipation. The second takes place in a more familiar setting but in an unfamiliar language: a West where the very word 'woman' no longer has any [...]

The magic of JK Rowling! Who in trans-Scotland opens an anti-violence centre FOR ONLY WOMEN
In Edinburgh there was not a single anti-violence shelter that was not also accessible to men claiming to be women. And the main centre is run by a transsexual. Surprisingly, the writer founds and finances a space strictly for women only. Challenging Premier Nicola Sturgeon's transgender policies. And meeting the real needs of victims of violence
We have told you several times about JK Rowling's commitment to women's rights in Scotland, where Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon is pushing for the passage of a law that would introduce a 'super self-ID' (see here), a very liberal gender identity. Last year, even before the bill was debated, the appointment of a transgender man, Mridul Wadhwa, as chief executive of Edinburgh's leading anti-violence shelter, which of course would also welcome men who 'identify as women' in what [...]

The Iranians are fighting for us too
Women in Iran are oppressed, violated and killed precisely because of their bodies as women. And their revolt could free everyone and everyone. Is'the woke West of'gender identity and 'freedom of the veil' ready to understand and support this revolution that blows for us too? Woman, life, freedom
In the uncertain and ever-changing geopolitical order of our time, in the midst of a global political agenda that from right to left forgets women, betraying, albeit in different ways, female exclusivity and the richness of sexual difference, the struggle of Iranian women has something epic, something moving. The killing of Mahsa Amini shows how the issue of the 'veil as freedom' is the quintessence of intellectual dishonesty, of logical fallacy, of an age-old lie. To 22-year-old Mahsa, the desire to 'feel the [...]

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 [...]

A POLITICAL HORIZON COMMON TO WOMEN OF ALL PARTIES
In the sign of Carla Lonzi forty years after her death: women voters and activists from all parties unite in the gift of a common 'unexpected programme', a horizon for a change of civilisation
"Will women always be divided from one another? Will they never form a single body?" (Olympe de Gouges, 1791) On the 40th anniversary of Carla Lonzi's death. We are women who vote for every political party. We live in every part of the country. We belong to every social condition. We are mothers and non-mothers. We have a faith, or we are agnostics, or atheists. We are held together by being women and the knowledge that what is good for a woman and her daughters/daughters is good [...]

Where is the Casa delle Donne in Rome going?
'The House we are all' reads the beautiful slogan of the historic enclave in Trastevere. But in that space, which is public and should be open, the#039;agibility is only transfeminist. And after the uncritical support for the Zan ddl -to stop feminicides-, the yes to the 'uterus for rent' and to 'sex work', now also the hymn to male ultra-bodies in women sports: maybe it is time for a reflection
The International House of Women in Rome agrees with the University of Pennsylvania's proposal to name Lia Thomas 'Woman Athlete of the Year'. Lia Thomas, of whom we have spoken several times here, is the famous swimmer who has repeatedly beaten her opponents competing in the women's categories, but who has at least had the merit of finally exploding the issue of male ultra-athletes in women's sports. The post shared by the International House of Women, a confusing little treatise on intersectional feminism, [...].

This is Georgia
Surrogacy, gender identity, motherhood: on many issues, the positions of the leader who now looks to the premiership coincide with those of feminism, snubbed by the left. What to do in the face of this challenge? Can the women's movement dialogue with the right?
Giorgia Meloni could become the first woman prime minister in our country. She no longer hides her ambition and if she knows how to do the right things by next spring - or rather, if she does not do the wrong things - and if she manages to escape the volleys of friendly fire, no less intense and insidious than enemy fire, she will be able to achieve her goal, having only herself to thank for the mistakes of her opponents: no one has co-opted her - see here - she has no master [...].

Are you gender critical? You don't get in the USA
The Global Respect Act, a bill being considered by the US Congress, would ban entry visas for anyone who has been responsible for discriminatory acts against LGBT people, or who has induced such acts in third parties. It is enough, therefore, not to adhere to the gender ideology and to think - as we do - that sex is real to no longer be able to enter the United States.
A world gone mad. In the East a brutal dictator is invading a neighbouring country, in the West the ideological drift is producing monsters. If with the Scottish novelty of the super self-id we thought we had reached the top of gender ideology - the request to be able to intervene on the birth certificate to change one's original sex at will, hiding it permanently, and to be able to say that one was born a woman even if one is a man to all effects - well, we were wrong. In the USA they have gone even further. A [...]

Girls who love Drusilla
The chic lady does not really exist. She is just a character en travesti, albeit with her own biography and style. But as a "woman by choice" and not by destiny, she is very popular with young people and is considered a model of femininity. Even if she is a man.
Yesterday evening Drusilla Foer accompanied Amadeus at the Sanremo festival with great success, with the usual corollary of gossip to arouse the curiosity of television viewers. Gianluca Gori, the talented actor who gives life to Drusilla, is neither trans, nor non-binary, nor even a drag queen, but perpetuates the tradition of en travesti shows of which Paolo Poli was the leader. The character seems to live a life of its own with respect to the actor who plays it, it has its own biography to tell (birth, [...]

Uk. You say no baby is born in the wrong body? To jail!
Jennifer Swayne, a feminist from Newport, Wales, was arrested for transphobic hate crime. She had put up stickers and posters with slogans like 'no men in women's prisons' and 'human beings never change sex'. The police searched his home and seized a book critical of the transition of minors. "It is my thinking that is under indictment", she says, "not what I have done".
Welsh feminist Jennifer Swayne was arrested in Newport for transphobic hate crime, on charges of criminal damage and illegal posting. Police had received reports of 'offensive' material being distributed around the city. Swayne was accused of spreading "anti-transgender" messages. She defended herself by saying that the stickers and posters she had put up were not anti-transgender but simply in support of women. Fair Cop, an association that fights in defence of freedom of [...]
