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 [...].

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 [...]

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 [...]

Zan bill: calling a spade a spade
The real name of Zan's bill, blocked a few days ago in the Senate, should have been the bill on gender self-certification and not against homotransphobia. That was the real goal, the self-id, and that is why the law has stalled. Sacrificing the rightful protection of homosexual and transsexual people to the proterity of queer transactivism
A brief comment, after the filing of Zan's bill on homobi-transphobia, intended especially for the non-Italian sisters and friends who ask us to explain; and for those who, among Italians, are still unclear about what happened. More or less a year ago, Zan's bill against homobi-transphobia was approved in the Chamber of Deputies amidst general silence and inattention. At that stage the media completely obscured the debate, while the ongoing Covid wave - in Italy had not yet begun [...].

Purple avalanche in Madrid
No to the Ley Trans. Stop pornography, prostitution, uterus for rent. Spanish feminism united in a huge demonstration to impose a political agenda free from transfeminist and queer intrusiveness, sending a signal to women all over Europe.
2000 women according to government sources, 6000 participants, gathered in Madrid from all corners of the Spanish peninsula and islands. A meeting that surprised the feminists themselves, who wanted to give a strong signal: FEMINISTS ARE THERE. We are not the minority. A union that has had as its objective the vindication of the main forms of oppression of women that feminism wants to eradicate from Spanish society: -Prostitution and pornography -Other for rent -Gender as [...]

Too fast, too tall, too strong. Analysis of Petrillo's performance in the men's category and then in the women's #O Olympics
A study by statistician Marco Alciator on an athlete's results before and after taking hormones and changing category from male to female - even if he is still a man at birth. As you can see, even with lowered testosterone levels for women, there is no contest. But the media rejoice at his easy victories
When someone questions the fairness of male-born athletes competing with women, they usually reply that their performance has deteriorated since the 'gender transition'. Apart from the fact that sports competitions are divided by gender according to the sexual difference of men's and women's bodies and not according to performance parameters, is it true that lowered testosterone levels would worsen the results of male athletes who say they 'feel like women'?

Sex, gender and ethnicity: the racialisation of postmodern society or how to erase women: an essay
Platform capitalism adopts in its own way tools used at the end of the last century by people without power to make their critical voices heard through forms of boycott and alternative cultural proposals, and it also turns gender issues into ethnic issues. Not only does it destroy class solidarity (typical of manufacturing capitalism) by turning people into social users where one is worth one and the important 'commodity' they produce is personal data, but it creates essentialised communities as a group [...]

What is gender?
"If gender identity is a spectrum, then we are all 'non-binary' because none of us fit into the points represented by the extremes of that spectrum. Each one of us will exist at a unique point on the spectrum." Rebecca Reilly-Cooper, philosopher and lecturer at the University of Warwick, reveals the fallacy of the concept of gender as a spectrum.
"What is gender?" This is a question that goes to the heart of feminist theory and practice, proving to be central to current activist debates on social justice issues concerning class, identity and privilege. In everyday conversations the word 'gender' is a synonym for what would more accurately be called 'sex'. Perhaps because of a vague squeamishness about pronouncing a word that also describes sexual intercourse, the word gender is euphemistically used to refer to the given [...]

RADICAL FEMINISM IS WINNING ALL OVER THE WORLD
I think a lot of us are feeling pretty down right now. Covids, stressful political changes, lockdowns, having to wear a mask everywhere we go (and hardly ever leaving the house!) and I could go on. But if there is a glimmer of light in the midst of all this misery it is the remarkable success of feminism worldwide - in particular, radical feminism. Don't get me wrong: feminism still has its work cut out for it, both in the ongoing struggle for [...]

Judith Butler: 'Calling them Terfs is right'. On conflicts in feminism
Thirty years ago, the now 64-year-old philosopher Judith Butler published a book that revolutionised popular perceptions of gender. "Gender trouble", the work for which she is best known, introduced the idea of gender as performance and raised questions about how we define the category of "women" and who feminism claims to be fighting for. Today, "Gender Trouble" is considered the seminal text in any bibliography of gender studies and its arguments have passed [...]
