Locked in a fence. Like in Kabul

Lettera aperta al Sindaco Gualtieri e alle altre autorità competenti sull’incredibile scena di discriminazione nel quartiere Centocelle a Roma: donne isolate come animali impuri per le celebrazioni di fine Ramadan. Chi ha dato il permesso per l’inaccettabile manifestazione? E che iniziative si intendono intraprendere contro questa barbarie misogina?

Al Sindaco di Roma Roberto Gualtieri Al Presidente del Municipio V Mauro Caliste Alla Commissione Pari Opportunità del Comune di Roma e p.c. Alla Ministra Pari Opportunità e Famiglia Eugenia Roccella Al Ministro dell'Interno Matteo Piantedosi Gentile Sindaco, gentile Presidente, gentili membri della Commissione Pari Opportunità, manifestiamo sgomento e sconcerto a fronte delle modalità con cui nel Municipio V della Capitale -piazza dei Mirti, quartiere Centocelle, a pochi metri dalla scuola intitolata ad Artemisia Gentileschi- si sono svolte le celebrazioni […]

UK. Cass report: no more affirmative therapy for children with gender-related problems

Pediatrician Hilary Cass' final report on child transitions comes out: offering affirmative therapy was a failure. There is no evidence on the effectiveness of puberty blockers, which should never be prescribed except in rare cases. Hormones of the opposite sex should not be given before the age of 18, and even between 18 and 25 caution should be exercised. A definitive watershed

The long-awaited final report of the Cass Review, an independent review chaired by paediatrician Hilary Cass on public health services for children and young people with 'gender dysphoria', came out this morning. Its final report and recommendations were presented to NHS England. Here are the highlights. The condemnation for affirmative therapy is final, and determined by the absolute lack of evidence that puberty blockers and opposite-sex hormones bring real benefits to children suffering from 'gender incongruence [...]

Hormone therapies on children: doctors' insurances start to run away

The risk of million-dollar claims by minors undergoing irreversible treatment who regret the 'affirmative therapy' is too high: this is why some insurance companies no longer feel like covering 'gender medicine' under their policies

Those who resist the market for the transition of gender non-conforming girls and boys know very well that almost always the turning point - as was the case in the UK with Keira Bell and in the US with Chloe Cole - is the lawsuit brought by a former child-or treated-or with blockers and hormones against the doctors who administered the 'therapy': the detransitioners' side is decisive. Then the game becomes money versus money: the money collected by the gender clinics versus the money they end up [...].

Also in Wyoming stop the transition of minors

It is the 24th US state to ban drug and surgical treatments on the bodies of gender non-conforming girls and boys. Doctors and practitioners who continue to prescribe affirmative therapy will lose their licences. Decisive in the passage of the law was the testimony - and legal action - of detransitioner Chloe Cole. A regulation banning trans-indoctrination in schools was also approved.

From next 1 July, hormone treatments and gender transition surgery of minors will be banned in Wyoming. With the passage of the law, Senate File 99, Wyoming will join 23 other US states, from Alabama to West Virginia, that have banned or severely restricted gender-affirming medicine on minors. Under the law, doctors, pharmacists and other health care providers who provide gender-affirming care could have their licences suspended or revoked. Opposed by Governor Mark Gordon, [...]

The UK has decided: no more puberty blockers for children with dysphoria. It is the ultimate turning point (in memory of Yarden Silveira, 1998-2021, killed by 'sex change')

Not only the stop at the Tavistock Clinic: no British centre for 'gender non-conforming' girls and boys will be able to prescribe puberty blockers any more. The approach will have to be solely psychological: a resounding turning point that will have knock-on effects all over the world, including Italy. One of the biggest scandals in the history of medicine is finally coming to an end: will someone pay for the thousands of irreversibly damaged minors? Recalling here one among them who lost his life because of the unscrupulousness of doctors and surgeons

The British National Health Service (NHS) announces that PUBERTY BLOCKERS WILL NO LONGER BE ADMINISTRATED TO MINORS WITH GENDER Dysphoria: this is huge and heart-warming news after years and years of fighting on the front line. So not only is the dedicated service of the Tavistock Clinic in London closing, but no centre for the treatment of minors with dysphoria will use puberty blockers any more. The decision, described as 'historic', will have knock-on effects worldwide, [...].

WPATH scandal: 'therapies' for children with dysphoria are improvised and prescribed without real consent

The World Professional Transgender Health is considered the leading global scientific and medical authority on 'gender medicine': over the past decades its standards of care have shaped the guidelines, policies and practices of governments, medical associations, public health systems and private clinics worldwide, including the WHO. But leaked documents reveal the neglect of children -including children with severe mental disorders- subjected to improvised treatments, without taking into account the long-term consequences and without being sure they were clear about what they were doing

The news manages to shock even those who have long fought against affirmative therapy - puberty blockers, hormones and surgery - for gender non-conforming minors, such as psychoanalyst David Bell who exposed the scandal at the Tavistock Clinic in London: 'Even for me the contents of these files are shocking and disturbing,' he said. "The files suggest that some WPATH members are aware that gender-affirming treatments sometimes cause very serious harm and [...]

Bodies that don't count: Judith Butler returns to the fray

In a crowded lecture at the London School of Economics, the Californian philosopher and pioneer of gender theory reiterated the cornerstones of her thinking: the materiality of sex does not exist, women do not have the exclusive right to be women and must open up to other subjects starting with Queers and pro-Palestinians, transfeminism is anti-capitalist and anti-fa for a common fight against "fascist passions". And it attacks gender-critical feminism "allied with the Right".

At one point, it seemed that Judith Butler had changed her ways. The Californian philosopher, one of the most influential of the last thirty years, a theorist of gender performativity, who had arrived along a radical constructivist path to the negation of the material consistency of gendered bodies to the point of problematising and/or dismantling the subject 'woman' itself, had acknowledged: "My definition gave rise to two contrasting interpretations: for one, everyone chooses their own gender; for the second, we are all women. had recognised: 'my definition gave rise to two conflicting interpretations: for the first, everyone chooses their own gender; for the second, we are all completely determined by gender norms [...].

A new AGEDO?

The historic Parents of Homosexuals Association has worked extensively for the acceptance and non-discrimination of gays and lesbians and today dedicates many of its initiatives to children with gender dysphoria. With an essentially affirmative approach, that is, supportive of transition. In a recent webinar it was said perhaps one should break off relations with family members who object and that reasoning about the effects of puberty blockers is off topic. To mention just a few of the more surprising statements

AGEDO (Associazione Genitori Di Omosessuali - Association of Parents of Homosexuals) was an important organisation set up in 1993 on the initiative of Paola Dall'Orto, founder and president until 2007 and awarded the title of Cavaliere al merito della Repubblica in 2009 for her work: 'The aim,' she explained, 'was to help those parents who found themselves in the same situation as us: in a state of discomfort, often despair, and almost always ignorant about the subject [...] We thought we could help these parents to know what they were not [...].

Boldrini is wrong
In the name of bigenitoriality and ideological paritarianism, the PD parliamentarian proposes an amendment to Article 37 of the Constitution, which speaks of the relationship between mother and child as deserving 'special protection'. It would be a great 'constitutional' gift to the lobby of separated fathers supported in particular by the League. And it would increase the risks for mothers and children
Laura Boldrini announces her intention to immediately deposit in Parliament a series of proposals that she calls a 'rights package'. These include the idea of an amendment to Article 37 of the Constitution which states that 'A working woman has the same rights and, for equal work, the same pay as a worker. Working conditions must allow the fulfilment of her essential family function and ensure special adequate protection for the mother and child'. Boldrini's intent is [...]

Fathers who kill
Davide Paitone killed his son Daniele and seriously injured his mother. A violent man, already detained under house arrest. He was also incoherent and a drinker. Yet in the name of 'parental equality' he was allowed to keep the child with him for New Year's Eve, a decision that ended in tragedy. But the right of the father, even if notoriously aggressive, is what counts most
Davide Paitone, a 40-year-old worker from Morazzone (Varese), is a violent man. He has already been accused of ill-treatment in the family, and is also a drunkard and incoherent. He had also stabbed a colleague after an argument and was therefore under house arrest. In spite of his violent temperament, he was allowed to keep his 7-year-old son Daniele with him for New Year's Eve. This concession was equivalent to a death sentence for the child, whose throat the father slit. After hiding the body [...]

Children taken away as if they were things
There are no laws authorising the violent removal of children. Social services, the only ones entitled to intervene in such cases, must refuse to carry out court orders. Doctors and psychologists cannot support these traumatic actions. Judges must respect national rules and international conventions. The government and parliament must stop this unworthy merry-go-round against children and their mothers.
Laws often do not exist, or if they do, they are interpreted in an anti-juridical way (see law 54/06 with its articles 155 and 155bis that should be read in a coordinated manner) or are simply not applied. Among the laws that are not applied is the Istanbul Convention, law 77/2013, which with its two articles 26 and 31 requires that in cases of domestic violence the mother and the child are both put in protection and that the foster care [...]

Misandry out of the Zan bill: a boon for mothers and children, a gift for abusive fathers
Antonella Penati, mother of Federico killed by his father during a "protected" meeting, speaks. The court and also the European Court of Human Rights do not consider the social workers responsible for failing to protect the child. And now, after the Pas, the danger of "misandry" against women and children is announced.
Forcibly snatching terrified girls and boys from their homes, taking them away from their mothers. Pisa, 15 June: forcible removal of an 8-year-old boy from his mother by order of the ordinary court with the intervention of 11 public officials who forced him to a sudden change of residence, to hand him over to his father with whom he has never lived - in Sicily - in the name of the so-called right to bigenitoriality.The psychologists of Protocollo Napoli stigmatize the incident, the Order of Psychologists of Lombardy [...].

Laura Massaro's child is no longer hers
The Juvenile Court of Rome has ordered that mother and child be SEPARATED FOREVER. The woman, judged to be a 'hostile mother', has lost her parental responsibility and will no longer be able to see her son, who could be forcibly removed at any time to be placed in a foster home.
A decree issued by the Rome Juvenile Court has ordered the removal of Laura Massaro's son from his mother, which may take place in the next few hours in a forced manner and without warning. Will we still have to endure the intolerable spectacle of a child being taken away by the police? The decree provides for the forfeiture of parental responsibility for the woman, considered a hostile mother, and the interruption of all relations with the child. The child will be placed in a foster home. The Court of Appeal in January [...]

1946, Italians vote: except for "wandering" prostitutes and cloistered nuns
The first female vote was not in the referendum of 2 June, as many believe, but in the local elections of 10 March 1946, with a turnout of 89 per cent. But it was not a first for all

In the Zan bill an additional weapon for violent men
The law is also against 'misandry', Zan keeps repeating, using a term invented by violent males. There is a serious risk for women: if PAS is not enough, they will find themselves accused by their ex-boyfriends and their lawyers of a new false crime.
Feminism's criticism of the Zan bill, in addition to the central issue of gender identity, also includes the inclusion of misogyny among the behaviours that can be sanctioned as hate crimes. The term 'misogyny' does not appear in the text, but that of 'sex'. To be precise, it speaks of 'Measures to prevent and combat discrimination and violence on grounds of sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and disability'. Those who have closely followed the drafting of the text will know [...]

Parentectomy: the mother removed like a tumour
Parentectomy: first a shock when I read the word in an article by Italian psychologists, subject to a common deontological code even if notoriously proponents of parental alienation, alias PAS. Then, coldly, the assessment that there could be no more appropriate terminology for the intervention that PAS advocates (G.B. Camerini, T. Magro, U. Sabatello, L. Volpini of the universities of Padua and Rome) propose in cases of parental alienation: the removal of the parent as if it were a tumour, a diseased organ [...].
