Citizenship Income Reform: taking sexual difference into account

The employment situation and wage levels of women -with strong regional variability- are very different between women and men. This was also the case for income, which also had a positive effect on the birth rate. This is why changing the institution requires a careful assessment of the so-called 'gender impact': an 'equal' reform could have unequal effects according to gender

The need for a citizenship income reform is now recognised across the board, albeit with different approaches and solutions. The Meloni government has presented its plan in progress. But the consideration of what is called the 'gender impact' -that is, the evaluation of the effects of the reform on women- still seems insufficient, generally underestimated by analyses. In a social situation and in a labour market like the Italian one, where women are strongly disadvantaged both in [...]

Prostitution 'clients' know full well that they are committing violence

Research on sex buyers shows that men are fully aware that prostitution is violence, that criminal organisations keep women in fear and that there is no 'regulation' that holds. But they only stop if they risk a criminal conviction, as is the case in Sweden, Norway, Canada, France, Ireland, Israel and other countries that have introduced the abolitionist model. Otherwise, they continue to consider date rape as their right

by Julie Bindel Germany is known as the brothel of Europe. It is a hard-won title. With more than 3,000 brothels across the country, and 500 in Berlin alone, its sex trade is worth more than £11 billion a year. Prostitution, in all its forms, has been legal in Germany since the end of World War II. Recently, however, attitudes are changing. People and politicians are asking the government to take notice of the so-called 'pimp state' and [...]

Iranian Beauty

In Iran, female beauty becomes the lever of a real revolution: nothing like the mortification-commodification of bodies that is propagated as freedom in the West. The struggle to be able to be a woman reveals the'hypocrisy of the queer

It is now almost two months since the Iranian girls' revolt against the veil began, an irrepressible wave that every day produces new images, new content, a breath of fresh air compared to certain narratives about women in the Islamic world, but also a mirror that reveals how much of an artefact there is behind so many politically correct watchwords of intersectional feminism or transfeminism. First, the veil is not a free choice, nor is that feminist empowerment about which we have been bombarded by [...]

Belgium, new feminicide law. To be studied

In Europe, male violence is the leading cause of death for women between the ages of 16 and 44. Belgium equips itself with a new law that for the first time legally defines feminicides in order to develop policies based on official statistics. Keeping in mind that violence is a device of male domination

Stop the slaughter of women. This is the meaning of the new 'law on the prevention of and fight against feminicides, gender-based crimes and the violence that precedes them' adopted at first reading in the Council of Ministers on 25 October in Belgium. Deposed by the Secretary of State for Gender Equality, Sarah Schlitz (Ecolo/Verdi), the framework law for the first time legally defines feminicides in order to develop combat policies based on official statistics. And in [...]

The name of the premier

Giorgia Meloni is not a feminist. Her history is not this. She has not shared in the long battles over language, over declension into the feminine instead of the neuter-masculine. But language today is a battleground that structures the most important political issues. And it deserves further reflection on her part

Giorgia Meloni is not a feminist. That is not her story. No woman on the right or centre-right who has held important political office, from Thatcher to Merkel, has ever called herself a feminist. Hence the non-sensitivity to the feminine declination of office, to which feminism instead attaches importance. Even if Angela Merkel at the end of her long chancellorship, during a meeting with the writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, agreed to call herself a feminist. According to Alice Schwarzer, founder of the [...]

England: new guidelines for 'trans' minors

While Spain is about to approve the horrifying Ley Trans, which allows the transition of girls from the age of 12 even if their parents oppose it, the English health service closes once and for all with the so-called pharmacological 'affirmative approach' (puberty blockers) practised for years and points to psychological treatment as the priority route. And in Italy? For the Italian Society of Paediatrics, these drugs do not cause any problems and their effects are completely 'reversible', a fact denied by several studies

The English health service (NHS) has published a new draft of guidelines for the treatment of children with gender dysphoria (full text here), pending the results of the Cass Review, an independent enquiry commissioned by the British health minister and led by paediatrician Hilary Cass (see here), which will lead to a complete restructuring of services dedicated to gender non-conforming children. After the closure of the Tavistock clinic -which we told you about here-, NHS puts a definitive end to the so-called [...]

Women-containers: pro-life and pro-utero for hire see eye to eye

For one and the other, the female body must make itself available to 'produce' the unborn child by renouncing the possibility of choice once pregnancy has begun. But a new life only really begins when there is a maternal yes: a fact that is unattainable and unattainable by law. Otherwise the only possibility is compulsion.

At least three things can be said about the bill filed by Maurizio Gasparri to amend Article 1 of the Civil Code and introduce into our legal system the recognition of the legal capacity of the conceived 'with the intention of preventing voluntary abortion in any form, whether legal or clandestine'. The first: it is highly unlikely that the bill will reach parliamentary halls. The immediate consequence of its approval would be the substantial inapplicability of law 194 because abortion would in fact be tantamount to murder. None of the majority forces [...]

The symbolic is political

Giorgia Meloni's 'no' to Silvio Berlusconi's wishes has been described as a nemesis: a young woman who sinks the old leader -'dragon devourer of virgins' defined him as the 'ex-wife' - and does not shy away from friends and foes alike. An unexpected twist in our misogynistic politics. Although the future premier has never called herself a feminist

Pompous, overbearing, arrogant and insulting. And she shortly replies that she is not to be blackmailed. In short, to paraphrase another famous exchange, 'not at disposal'. The major newspapers have already spoken of nemesis. The Cavaliere put under by a woman much younger than him, Giorgia Meloni, who at 45 could be the first to lead a government in Italy: hard accounts with her father, after all, are part of her biography. On the opposite front, the [...]

Tokyo: Tranny Hubbard loses but doesn't let the women win
Paradoxically, 'Laurel's' defeat is more useful to the cause of transhumanism than her victory. The transhumanists will use it to 'prove' that if a tranny couldn't win against women, then it's true that hormones are enough to make a male body 'equal' to a female body.
Gavin "Laurel" Hubbard, as predicted - not only by the IOC but also by the Feminist Post - was eliminated in the Olympic women's weightlifting final +87 kg (super heavyweight), after a failed attempt to lift 120 kg and two failed attempts at 125 kg in the snatch. The women's weightlifting final was curiously not broadcast live on the official RAI channel, despite being described as "of historic significance" precisely because of Hubbard's presence as "the first openly transgender athlete to compete [...]

Olympics, 2 August: unmissable Laurel Hubbard, first trans athlete in the competition!
Born Gavin, since becoming a self-declared woman Hubbard has made a killing in women's weightlifting. But she is not seen as the favourite: perhaps even for the IOC a gold would be embarrassing to handle in front of the world.
There are great expectations on Monday 2 August, 12.50 pm Italian time, for the women's weightlifting competition in which New Zealand athlete Laurel Hubbard, celebrated by the media as "the first transgender athlete at the Olympics", will take part. Laurel, weighing 131 kg, will compete in the heaviest female category, +87 kg, in Group A. In addition to being the 'first trans woman', Laurel has another record: at 43 years old, she will be the oldest lifter at the Olympics. The other nine athletes are all in their twenties [...]

24 Italian female athletes take legal action against male ultra-athletes in their sports.
The sportswomen -including Cristina Sanulli and Denise Neumann, beaten by Valentina Petrillo, a male athlete, - claim to be deprived of fair competitions, in violation of the Equal Opportunities Code. And they write to Minister Bonetti and Undersecretary Vezzali. No answer so far.
As the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games approached in July, the media began showing footage of women's competitions in which male-born athletes also participate - and almost always win - thanks to the guidelines drawn up by an all-male group of the International Olympic Committee, which provide for self-identification with "female gender identity" and lowered testosterone levels as the only criteria. The images of these, with a frame that despite the breasts, pink jumpsuits, lipstick and red nail varnish remains [...]

Too fast, too tall, too strong: An analysis of Petrillo's performance in the men's and then in the women's category #Olympics
A study by statistician Marco Alciator on the athlete's results before and after taking hormones and switching from the male to the female category based on his declared gender identity. Evidently, even with the lowered testosterone levels required to compete in the women's category, he is still unfairly advantaged. But the media rejoice at his easy victories.
When questions arise about the fairness of trans-identified male athletes competing with women, the usual reply is that their performance has deteriorated since their 'gender transition'. Considering the fact that sports competitions are divided by sex, namely the sexual difference of men's and women's bodies, and not on performance parameters, is it true that lowered testosterone levels would worsen the results of male athletes who say they 'feel like women'? The IOC's decision to admit these men to women's competitions [...].

Why sport is so important for women
It is an experience of empowerment, of self-esteem, of liberation from stereotypes. Especially in those places in the world where patriarchy is fiercest. But in 'liberal' countries dishonest males want to invade and usurp women's sports
Some time ago we published "Why allow men to compete with women?" an open letter from Linda Blade to the Olympic Committee. Linda has a lifetime's experience in athletics, but also a great deal of scientific knowledge about how bodies are built and how they move. With her doctorate in Kinesiology and her professional experience, she has been a great campaigner for the protection of women's sports with numerous media appearances to her credit, including a Munk debate [...]

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'?

Why allow men to compete with women? Letter to the Olympic Committee
The Tokyo Olympics will be the first in which male athletes who say they 'feel like women' will compete in the women's categories, in deference to the ideology of gender identity. Former athletics champion Linda Blade writes to the IOC and the Japanese people: you deserve honourable Olympic Games
The 2020 Tokyo Olympics - this is the official name despite the postponement - will be the first in which male athletes who say they "feel like women" will participate in the female categories, authorised by the IOC in deference to the ideology of gender identity. In Japan, which has been governed almost uninterruptedly since the 1950s by the conservative and pronatalist LDP (Liberal Democratic Party or Jimintō), the situation regarding transhumanism is different from that in Western countries. However, gender identity activists are present, well organised [...]

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 [...]

Tokyo Olympics: men's bodies in women's sports. The first is Laurel Hubbard
A mediocre athlete in men's weightlifting, Hubbard obviously wins in the women's category. Protests grow, but four more T athletes prepare for Tokyo
Following the cancellation of the final qualifying events for the Tokyo Olympics, the sports pages are reporting that Laurel Hubbard (New Zealand) could become the first transgender athlete to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics. Hubbard, son of industrialist and current mayor of Auckland Dick Hubbard, until the age of 34 practised weightlifting with mediocre results in the men's category as Gavin Hubbard, in 2013 undertook a "gender transition" and was admitted in the women's category of the [...]

It is also OK in France for males to call themselves women in women's sports. The bomb could explode at the Olympics with a resounding "me too" by female athletes.
This business of male athletes 'identifying as women' in order to participate in women's sports and win easily is simply grotesque as well as violent and misogynistic, and could explode in front of a global audience at the upcoming Tokyo Olympics (unless the pandemic forces a further postponement). Given the high stakes, the number of MtF trans-athletes who will be competing in Japan is growing (while it goes without saying that no FtM athlete is pushing for the next Olympics, as they have their skin as well as their face on the line).
