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 [...]

Maya Forstater, fired for saying sex cannot be changed, wins in court: it was discrimination
Decisive for gender critical feminism around the world was the victory of Maya, a researcher who lost her job over a tweet in which she wrote that biological sex is immutable and that women have rights based on sex. Britain reaffirms the right to criticise gender identity: threats and accusations of transphobia are illegitimate. "A'further proof" says Forstater "that the wind is changing". The final ruling of the labour court also ordered the company that did not renew the contract of the researcher, co-founder of Sex Matters, to pay compensation. A triumph across the board
A year ago, June 2021, Feminist Post published an article on the case of Maya Forstater, the British researcher whose employment contract was not renewed by her employer for expressing critical views on the concept of gender identity and reaffirming the importance of women's gender-based rights. The article ended by reminding readers that Maya's case was not yet over and, although the appeal ruling of the [...]

New Forstater case in UK: lawyer sues Stonewall for 'inducing discrimination'
Allison Bailey was allegedly mobbed and discriminated against by her law firm for expressing her opposition to gender self-certification or self-id. A lesbian and founder of the LGBT Alliance, she sued the firm and Stonewall as well. Who, she is convinced, actively worked for her "punishment".
Stonewall will face a court case for encouraging the law firm where Allison Bailey, a lesbian lawyer, works to issue a disciplinary measure against her just because she had criticised transgender activists. The lawyer filed a discrimination complaint inspired by the case of Maya Forstater, the researcher at the Center for Global Development in London who lost her job for expressing her opposition to gender self-certification (see here). On 10 June, an appeals court ruled that Maya Forstater had [...].

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'? [...]

Victory for Maya, for JK Rowling and for all of us!
Belief in the immutability of biological sex is an opinion protected by the European Convention on Human Rights. Maya Forstater and all gender critical feminism are entitled to freely express their thoughts. This ruling is a great victory for justice and women's rights.
The Court of Appeal of the Employment Tribunal in England issued its judgment in the Forstater case on 10 June today. The Court ruled that belief in the immutability of biological sex is a form of opinion protected by Article 9(1) of the European Convention on Human Rights. What had happened, and what will happen now to Maya Forstater? Let's take a step back. In 2019 Maya, a researcher at the Center for Global Development in London, expressed in a series of tweets some criticisms [...]

UK, Equality and Human Rights Commission closes Stonewall's relations with LGBT people
Human rights apply to everyone, not just LGBT people, starting with freedom of speech: the Equality Commission breaks with Stonewall and says no more censorship and single-mindedness. Another blow to transcult in Britain
In a letter to Sex Matters, Kishwer Falkner, chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), the UK's equal opportunities watchdog, said it had ended its relationship with Stonewall, the largest LGBT organisation. "As a publicly funded organisation, we have to make sure we make the best choices about our budget and we have recently reviewed all our agreements," said Falkner. For many years Stonewall has strongly influenced [...]

Sentence to be handed down to Maya Forstater, who was fired for saying that sex exists.
Maya Forstater, the tax consultant who lost her job two years ago for stating that men cannot become women, is expected to be sentenced in the appeal trial. Forstater insisted that her views were derived from 'material reality'. A brilliant researcher in the field of tax avoidance, the woman was not renewed in her contract two years ago by the London office of the Centre for Global Development on the grounds that she had used "offensive and exclusionary" language [...]
