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 [...].

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 [...]

Spain reopens Ley Trans: PSOE's sudden turnaround
After having long obstructed the law proposed by Podemos, and in particular free gender self-identification, the socialists are changing course. Perhaps following the recent electoral defeat in Madrid. On 29 June, Pride time, the government will discuss the text fought by feminism. Which looks very much like the Zan ddl
Stalled since February, the negotiations for the Ley Trans in Spain have suddenly resumed. Internal sources have confirmed that the government has unblocked the process for the law - which had been stopped thanks to the abstention of the PSOE, ed. - which is expected to be brought to the Council of Ministers on 29 June, in the middle of the Pride celebrations. The big obstacle that the members of the Executive, Podemos and PSOE, had to face was the so-called free self-determination of gender, which presupposes that the will of a [...]

Spain: left-wing women rebel -finally- against the Podemos transcult and break with the party and Ley Trans
While the Italian left, women included, silently suffers Cirinnismo and Boldrinismo and its transcult (just in these days the news of an appeal by the International House of Women in Rome in support of Monica Cirinnà as mayor, see here), the militants of the Spanish left, Podemos and Izquierda Unida, are revolting en masse against the Ley Trans (see here) proposed by the Minister of Igualdad of their own party, Irene Montero, the local Cirinnà (Psoe has always opposed the law), denouncing the "imposition" of [...]

Transactivists 'hang' Spanish vice-premier Carmen Calvo for her criticism of the Trans Law
A puppet with the mask of Carmen Calvo, socialist vice-premier of Spain, was found hanging from a tree in Plaza 8 de Marzo in Santiago de Compostela. On the puppet a sign: "I am lost... Where is the patriarchy?" (here the article of El Mundo). Carmen Calvo was "executed" for her highly critical stance on the so-called Ley Trans, which aims to introduce in Spain the free choice of gender identity (self-id) without any judgment, expertise or act [...]

Investigation into Lidia Falcon, Spanish feminist denounced by transactivists, closed
In the name of the right to the free expression of one's thought and opinion, the Fiscalia of Madrid has filed the judicial enquiry against Lidia Falcon (here you can also find the sentence), a historical feminist of that country, already victim of persecution and torture under the Franco regime and founder of the Feminist Party, denounced by the transactivists and even expelled from the leftist coalition Izquierda Unida for opposing the Ley Trans (for the free gender identity or self-id) in the process of [...].

Spain: Ley Trans divides the country and splits the government, Psoe against Podemos. And feminism opposes. Here is the text of the Spanish law. And that of the Italian proposal already ready
We propose here for your documentation the whole text of the so-called Ley Trans, which is being debated in Spain, with a split in the government majority: on one side the proposers of Podemos, led by the Minister of Igualdad Irene Montero and deaf to every objection, on the other side the Psoe that opposes it, pointing out many criticalities. Together with the text of the bill, we publish the precise and reasoned objections of the feminists of Contra Borrado (almost 150 associations that tenaciously oppose it) and their counter-proposal. The texts are too long [...]

Women against women: Spanish minister Irene Montero and her Ley Trans. Feminist protests ignored
For Irene Montero, Spanish Minister of Equal Opportunities (Podemos), the so-called Ley Trans, which allows the free and totally self-determined choice of one's own "gender identity" (self-id), is an absolute emergency and must be approved as soon as possible: the plan is to get it through within the first two weeks of February. Spanish feminism has been mobilising against the Trans Ley for months, but Montero does not consider women's objections even though she claims to want to find mediation. She says that the "gender identity [...]
