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 [...]

Gender is a battlefield

Joe Biden in the midst of campaigning replaces the word sex with gender identity. Germany and Sweden pass new trans laws allowing self-identification (self-id): German parents will be able to decide what sex their newborn child is regardless of whether it has a penis or a vagina. Meanwhile after England also Scotland bans puberty blockers for 'non-compliant' minors. And in Spain, one year after Ley Trans came into force, 'sex changes' have increased by 400 per cent. Even some 30 bearded soldiers have declared themselves women. The lobby pushes furiously and the chaos is unspeakable

While also in Scotland, after England, 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers followed by hormones and surgery) will no longer be prescribed to minors, a decision taken following the publication of the sensational Cass Review, in the United States President Biden - or rather, his firmly Obamian administration - in the midst of the presidential election campaign in November has effectively abolished Title IX of the Education Amendments in force since 1972. The amendment mandated that no one on the basis of sex could be excluded from [...]

Spain: inmate pregnant with trans cellmate
The man -intact male body and no hormone therapy- had asked and obtained to be moved to the women's prison in Alicante because he 'self-perceived' to be a woman (self-id). A cellmate's pregnancy was the result. And the new Ley Trans, in force since December 2022, will make such transfers easier and more frequent
In the Alicante Cumplimiento Penitentiary Centre, known as Fontcalent Prison, an inmate identifying himself as a woman impregnated a cellmate. According to the account confirmed by several prison sources, the inmate had been serving a sentence in the male module of the prison for several years, but during his stay he started to identify himself as a woman. On his papers he continues to appear as a man and has never undergone hormone treatment, let alone surgery. [...]

Spain: Ley Trans at the centre of the election campaign
The popular Isabel Dìaz Ayuso, newly elected president of the Madrid region, promises that an eventual centre-right government will change the highly contested Ley Trans approved by the Sanchez government, which introduced free gender identity. In defence of the Constitution and above all the rights of women and children as well as freedom of opinion. Decisive theme in view of the political elections next 23 July
In Spain, biopolitical issues have also become major topics and are playing a decisive role in the election campaign. In the run-up to the general elections on 23 July, there is already talk of changing the laws on gender identity, less than six months after the approval of the Ley Trans wanted by ex-minister Irene Montero of Podemos, a political formation that almost died out in the last local elections. The first to speak about it was the newly elected president of the Madrid region, Isabel Díaz Ayuso del [...]

Spain: woke sex also among the reasons for the end of Podemos
Ley Trans. Only Yes is Yes' law that reduced penalties for sex offenders. And now also a Manifesto for Sex Education for All* that jeopardises the safety of girls and boys. The spirit is always the same: a queer sexuality promoted by outgoing minister Irene Montero. Which, however, voters and electors apparently do not like. An analysis by lecturer Juana Gallego, feminist affected by the cancel culture
In yesterday's local elections in Spain, the left lost disastrously - as in Italy, for that matter. In particular, there was the stinging defeat of Podemos, which in many regions almost went extinct. In the analyses of the Spanish vote, perhaps not enough emphasis is given to two manifesto-laws of Podemos, and in particular of the transfeminist minister Irene Montero: the 'Only Yes is Yes' law, which reduced penalties for sexual crimes, and the Ley Trans, which [...]

GERMANY WILL ALSO HAVE ITS OWN TRANS LEY
The Bundestag is preparing to vote on a proposal modelled on the horrible Spanish law that allows free choice of gender even for minors with a simple self-declaration at the registry office (in addition to the possibility of changing one's mind several times). Also in the front line here is a left-wing woman counterpart of Irene Montero: the Green Minister for Women's Affairs Lisa Paus. But the opinion of the Federal Constitutional Court, which expresses many doubts about the deletion of the category 'sex', will be needed.
What is a woman? The answer that Justice Minister Buschmann (FDP, Liberal Democratic Party) and Women's Affairs Minister Lisa Paus (Greens, pictured) give to this question is: a woman is anyone who claims to be a woman. This is the core of the 'bill on self-determination in gender registration' that both ministries have now presented. With a simple declaration at the registry office, everyone will in future be able to change their sex: from male to [...]

The global abolition of sex
The law just passed in Scotland replacing sex with free choice of gender. The one being passed in Spain. And Germany's project. In her article in Newsweek, Kara Dansky also warns the United States about self-id. But from Great Britain, Sweden and Finland come signals in stark contrast: the game is still to be played.
22 December was a black day for gender critical feminism: in spite of lively protests outside Parliament, Scotland passed the law allowing gender self-identification or self-id -without exception for sex offenders who will be able to freely access women's spaces by identifying themselves as women. Also in Spain, the Ley Trans, which has a very similar structure, has passed the first step in the lower house and is on its way to final approval in the coming weeks [...].

SPAIN: SOCIALISTS AGAINST THE TRANS LEY
Unlike their Italian counterparts from the PD and the left who stand for free gender identity, the Spanish progressives break with the PSOE's transactivist policies in defence of women and children. In their manifesto the excellent arguments against what, if passed, could be the worst transactivist law in the world
Breaking with its party, the PSOE, and sending a signal to the women of the European left, who are generally aligned in defence of transactivist diktatism, the Federación de Mujeres Progresistas launches a courageous manifesto against the Trans Law wanted by the governing majority in Spain (PSOE and Podemos) and being approved by an emergency procedure, without an effective parliamentary debate or a wide public discussion. The initiative also comes in response to the clamorous break between historical Spanish feminism -united in the Contraborrado cartel- [...].

Perhaps gender identity does not exist
If it is the biologist Anna Fausto-Sterling, the first to speak about it in the 1990s, the inspiration of Judith Butler and the founder of gender theory, who is in doubt, then perhaps we are at a clamorous and definitive turning point. Stop trans laws before it is too late!
If Judith Butler is The Queen of Gender, Anna Fausto-Sterling is its goddess: zoologist, biologist and lecturer in gender studies -now at Brown University- starting from the rare genetic condition of intersexuality in the early 1990s, she was the first to attack the concept of sexual binaryity, arguing that sexuality is a spectrum and that at least five sexes can be identified ('come on, it wasn't a theory, I was being ironic, it was just a provocation' she later said. But in vain). [...]

Trans-Europe: Ireland, UK, Spain, gender laws high on political agendas
While the new British Prime Minister Liz Truss works to block gender self-certification in Scotland, the Iberian government prevents the parliamentary debate on the Ley Trans, which allows sex change even for 12 year olds, to go for approval in a hurry: that is why Spanish feminists break with the left and open dialogue with the Popular Party. Meanwhile in Ireland a professor is arrested for refusing to use fluid language
A teacher at an Irish Christian school, Enoch Burke, was suspended and then arrested for refusing to name a transgender student with a neuter pronoun. Meanwhile, new British PM Liz Truss is reportedly trying to block Scotland's plans to allow self-identification for transgender (self-id) people and has asked lawyers for advice on how to 'pause or prevent' the reforms. Truss, head of the equalities brief as well as a former foreign minister, was instrumental in ruling out [...]

Zan draft law: calling things by their name
El verdadero nombre del proyecto de ley de Zan, bloqueado hace unos días en el Senado, debería haber sido "Proyecto de ley sobre la autocertificación de género" y no contra la homotransfobia. Ese era el verdadero objetivo, la autoidentificación, y por eso la ley se ha estancado. Sacrificar la legítima protección de las personas homosexuales y transexuales a la arrogancia del transactivismo queer.
Un breve comentario, tras archivar el proyecto de ley Zan sobre la homobi-transfobia, destinado principalmente a las hermanas y amigas no italianas que nos piden explicaciones; y a las italianas que aún no tienen claro lo que pasó. Hace más o menos un año, el proyecto de ley de Zan contra la homobiotransfobia fue aprobado en la Cámara de Diputados en medio del silencio y la desatención general. En ese momento, los medios de comunicación ocultaron por completo el debate, [...]

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 [...]

Spain: Psoe feminists put obstacles in the path of the Trans Law
After the recent about-turn by the Spanish socialists, who had come out in favour of the Trans Law, the party's feminists are reopening the debate, proposing amendments against gender identity for the next Federal Congress. These have met with grassroots approval, while the leadership is currently silent.
The feminist collective of the PSOE presented amendments to some points of the programme at the party's 40th Federal Congress that would violate equality policies. In particular, the aim is to avoid "the introduction of formulations that imply setbacks for equality policies" and therefore for "the guarantee of women's recognised rights". "Replacing sex with gender" explain the signatories "prevents a proper analysis of the social, economic and political reality in the face of inequalities" as well as "jeopardising the necessary disaggregation [...]

Meeting ContraBorrado: LEY TRANS & DDL ZAN
ContraBorrado and RadFem Italia jointly analyse the similarities between the "Ley Trans" in Spain and the Zan bill in Italy.
Live with Ángeles Álvaréz, referent of ContraBorrado and one of the most important representatives of Spanish radical feminism. Together with Marina Terragni and Sara Punzo as interpreter from Spanish to Italian, we analyse the similarities between the so-called "ley trans" and the Zan bill. We explain how pro "gender identity" laws harm minors, statistics and women's rights and protection laws. We look with critical feminist perspective at the position of the Italian left and right political parties [...]
