Feminism and the Right

In response to Julie Bindel, who considers the wall erected by the transactivist left but also the risks of an alliance with the right: in Italy, the historical novelty -a right-wing woman premier, Giorgia Meloni- further complicates the picture. What to do then? What is happening in Spain over the horrible Ley Trans perhaps points to a good way forward for everyone

Julie Bindel and Harvey Jeni take the bull by the horns: given that for too long there has been no possibility of dialogue with the left, can radical and gender-critical feminism look to the right without taking risks? This is a theme that we in Italy are well aware of and that agitated the entire election campaign that ended with the landslide victory of a right-wing woman, Giorgia Meloni, who has never declared herself a feminist. The fact that today the right in Italy is [...]

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- [...].

RU486 or abortion pill: myths, misunderstandings and business

Chemical abortion is sold as more free and self-determined, but it is not the solution for everyone: it is longer and more painful than surgery, sometimes less safe, and mostly serves to save the health system money, as the essay by three American feminists explains. Women must be guaranteed the right to be informed and to make an informed choice between the two options: here is a bill to make hospitals work

A few days ago we published 'When abortion matters to men'. In the post we mentioned the various methods of involuntary termination of pregnancy, including the abortion pill RU 486, also known as 'chemical abortion'. Chemical abortion is spoken of as a step forward in self-determination. Younger women in particular can get confused between 'morning-after' contraception (which must be taken within 72 hours of risky intercourse) and the abortion pill, with which pregnancy can be terminated up to the ninth week. [...]

When abortion matters to men

Totally ignored by the right and left in peacetime, the issue of abortion becomes central when men fight for their power. But if there is a 'Marche case' there is also a 'Emilia case', a red region: the same percentages of objection and no abortion pill in the consultatories. We women must not take part in this filthy dispute over our flesh, siding with one or the other supporters.

Women - or rather, so-called 'women's rights' - have been instrumentally thrown into the centre of this horrific election campaign, probably the worst ever. Not the low female employment rate, the gender pay gap, the lack of services that forces us into the living welfare part, violence and feminicide, the machismo of politics and all that we know and experience. The issue of issues is abortion, fished out of the oblivion in which it is normally confined -no party [...]

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 [...]

Elizabeth, the last matriarch

The missing queen wielded her power so skilfully that it was invisible. A profound influence that never backfired. Wisdom, an iron sense of duty, pragmatism, emotional control and no narcissism: these are the traits of sovereignty that make her a model of female authority

Gaby Hinsliff for The Guardian Stop all watches. Unplug the phone. For once, the opening lines of WH Auden's poem, Funeral Blues, seem appropriate to the moment. Like it or not, much of public life will come to a halt in the days of mourning as broadcasters suspend their programmes and a state funeral is prepared. However long it may have been predicted, the death of the longest reigning monarch in British history is a moment [...]

A video every 10 minutes

The brutal murder of Alessandra Matteuzzi, hammered to death by her ex-boyfriend, is the perfect representation of every feminicide: the murderer is not someone who loses control, but one who restores it. Her death serves to restore the balance lost as a result of the abandonment. Violence is a function of domination. It's here that one must keep one's gaze to be able to stop it

The killing of Alessandra Matteuzzi, the Bolognese woman murdered by her ex with a hammer and an iron bench, is the plastic and perfect representation of the dynamics of every feminicide. Giovanni Padovani is not crazy, he is not a drop-out, he is a young man in perfect shape, integrated in the world, even a testimonial for campaigns against violence against women. In short, you would never have guessed it. Alessandra is subjected to constant and unprecedented harassment: she has to justify every movement, every breath, [...].

Argentina: stop neutral language in schools
E' was the first country to introduce gender self-identification. Ten years later it is among the first to ban neutral language in schools as it is 'not even that inclusive: it creates a barrier for children with learning difficulties'
In 2012, Argentina was the first country in the world to introduce self-id or gender self-identification into its legal system. Ten years later, it is one of the first countries to ban neutral language in schools. As taught by the mothers of radical feminism and difference thinking, the neutral is a red herring that actually brings the male point of view back to the centre. If the illusion of the neutral is less noticeable in the English language, it is immediately [...]

Bullying and social contagion behind the epidemic of 'trans children' in British schools
Children who come home from school saying they are 'trans' often have autism or learning difficulties and have been bullied. In the UK, parents denounce the role of peers and teachers and accuse schools of failing in their duty of care towards vulnerable pupils.
Since we founded Our Duty in 2018, we have collected the experiences of parents with children who would like to put themselves on a path that ends in mutilation, sterilisation, loss of sexual function and regret, throughout their lives. Their testimonies reveal how children are encouraged to embrace a transgender identity by other pupils, with the connivance of teachers and often deliberately without the knowledge of their parents. [...] We begin with the testimony of a mother of a boy [...].

Gender-neutral school toilets: the new battle of sex-protestants
While in the UK there is growing impatience with the pressures of the LGBT lobby, in Italy we are in full trans peak: schools, universities, the mass media system, books for girls and boys. Gender identity is everywhere, as if self-identification were in force de facto. The latest case in the University of Pisa
While in the UK the trans peak is behind us, and every day the press reports on the growing intolerance of citizens, government and big private companies to the pressures of the Lgbtq+ lobby and in particular Stonewall's Diversity Scheme (just the latest: hundreds of nurses and midwives asking their organisations to break with 'inclusive' policies that allow men self-identified as women to be admitted to women's wards, and [...]

Moms for Liberty: mothers against LGBT doctrine in US schools
Free gender identity, career aliases, self-id: propaganda is hammered out in American primary schools, silencing families against it. But now mothers are organising themselves: 'We don't share the role of parents with the government'. Born in deepest America, the movement is now spreading across the country with tens of thousands of adherents.
It was foreseeable: LGBT propaganda in American schools, including primary schools, has reached such levels of invasiveness - alias careers, gender identity, self id, even against or without the parents' knowledge, indicating those against as enemies - that parents have organised themselves to take back their rights. After the first and isolated attempts at resistance, which we have shown you here, the organisation Moms of Liberty was born, a conservative group mobilised mainly against gender indoctrination and critical race theory, a movement that [...]

These children are not yours: an American mother's revolt against trans-propaganda in schools
Rebelling against a climate she describes as Orwellian, Dawn Land spoke out during a school meeting to denounce queer indoctrination of girls and propaganda about gender identity and puberty blockers. This is one of the risks we run by approving the Zan legislative decree.
The woman you see in the film is called Dawn Land and is the mother of one - or one, she does not specify - student in the Puyallup School District, Washington state. Bravely breaking censorship on 21 June, she intervened during a parents' meeting to denounce the trans and queer indoctrination to which children in primary and secondary schools (5-12 years old) are subjected. This is the reality in American and Canadian schools. His speech, interrupted by the liberating applause [...]

How President Obama introduced gender identity in American schools
Without any clear definition or public debate, gender identity has become a guiding principle in US educational institutions. The proactive role of the former president and of the powerful Pritzker family, leaders in the pharmaceutical industry, has made gender identity a key principle in US educational institutions.
A decade ago, most teachers, headmasters and students in primary and secondary schools had never heard the terms 'transgender' or 'gender identity'. In a decade, everything has changed. By now every teacher, headmaster and student across America has heard these terms, even if they are not quite sure what they mean. The concept of 'gender identity' often changes depending on who is talking. There has never been a legal definition or [...]

The unicorn Gegi teaches gender identity to girl-children
The magical horse loved by the youngest children hired by trans-propaganda to teach self-id in Canadian schools, even against the wishes of parents. Aliased identity already being promoted in Italian schools too
Since the publication of the so-called Yogyakarta Principles, queer activists have worked hard to incorporate the quasi-religious concept of 'gender identity' into every aspect of society, including schools. Typically confident and open-minded, and very interested in social inclusion, children and adolescents are easy targets. In the UK, the organisation Mermaids has been very successful in promoting gender identity in schools, at least until the Keira Bell ruling brought the public's attention to the [...]

The Espresso cover is perfect
The cover of the Espresso is good journalism, because it makes it definitively clear that the real goal of the Zan law is gender identity, towards free self-certification or self-id. Citizens have the right to know this. And to discuss it for as long as they need to.
The cover of the Espresso is perfect because it provides excellent information on the Zan ddl, more than many editorials, TV programmes and Zoom meetings, perfectly hitting the target: a pregnant woman -only women get pregnant- who identifies herself as a man, has undergone a double mastectomy -evident scars- and takes testosterone -beard and hair-. That woman will demand to be called a "man who gives birth", she will accuse of misgendering and transphobia anyone who says, possibly at the risk of being prosecuted (it has already happened around [...]

Feminism and Zan law
In these hours, the LGBT+ world is mobilising to ask the Senate Justice Commission to schedule the Zan bill against homobitransphobia, misogyny and ableism, which has already been approved by the Chamber of Deputies. Arcilesbica has drawn up a number of proposed amendments, without which, it says, "there is a risk of serious breakdown". These, in brief, are the proposals addressed to the centre-left senators. - in the definitions in art.1, use the clear terms of "sex, gender stereotypes, sexual orientation, transsexuality", instead of the current ambiguities (sex, gender, orientation [...]

Biden, day 1: free access to women's sports for transwomen with male bodies
He didn't even wait 24 hours: among the very first executive orders of the new American president Joe Biden - together with urgent measures on health, such as the obligation to wear masks, and on migrants - the readmission of transgender 'girls' to girls' school sports. So, born males - with male bodies, male muscles and almost always male genitals - who "identify" as women and who will obviously also be able to access reserved areas such as bathrooms and changing rooms. The decree was ready and was immediately issued, [...].
