Italian Society of Paediatrics: stopping puberty in dysphoric children does not cause permanent problems. But several studies prove otherwise

UK, Sweden, Finland, USA: much of the world is up in arms against puberty blockers that can irreversibly damage the health of girls and boys. The Tavistock clinic in London is closing down, a thousand families are preparing for a class action in defence of their daughters and sons who have not been properly treated, many American paediatricians are attacking their trade association which is pushing for the administration of these drugs. But for the Italian paediatricians' society these problems do not exist

According to the Italian Society of Paediatrics, the effects of puberty blockers used to treat girls and boys with gender dysphoria are perfectly REVERSIBLE: this means that if the girl/boy changes her mind about her intention to 'change sex' and suspends the 'therapy', her development will resume normally, without any definitive effects and/or health problems. This is not the case at all. The effects of puberty blocker therapy are by no means 'completely reversible', as has been demonstrated by several [...]

California, transfusion of children

The American state proposes itself as a 'health' tourism destination for minors who are unable to access transition where they live. Exempting the parents and relieving the operators of any risk of litigation in the event of subsequent 'repentance'. Meanwhile in the UK, after the closure of the Tavistock, eyes are on a Scottish clinic where the experimental model (puberty blockers and surgery) continues to be applied

There is a real war going on in the United States over the ideology of gender identity and its promotion in schools. A 'culture war' pitting the elites, who fund and promote gender ideology, against the ordinary people who oppose it (see the Disney case here). While Biden from day one has made many legislative concessions to trans activism at the federal level, the Republicans have intercepted the discontent of the citizenry with various counter-legislation at the state level, such as [...]

Worker yes. Minister no. Woman neither

If there is one thing Italian politicians all agree on, it is the erasure of women, starting with language. While the 'progressive' left erases us with asterisks and schwa -fake-inclusive language that returns everything to the masculine- the right refuses to use the feminine for women of authority in institutions. But words are important because they make reality

Incredibly -and with a secret vote, wickedly conceded by President Casellati- a few days ago, the Senate rejected the Maiorino amendment authorising women in the institutions to be called by their names. This issue has profound political relevance. Many poets over the centuries have made use of poetic licences, i.e. intentional grammatical, metrical and syntactic errors with the intention of emphasising a concept or altering the sonority of the composition. On 27 July 2022 at Palazzo Madama is [...]

UK. Black week for the glittering trans-patriarchy: closed the Tavistock, gender clinic for children. And Allison Bailey wins in court: she was discriminated against for her gender critical views

The ideology of gender identity under attack in UK: NHS orders closure of paediatric transition clinic and points the way to psychological therapies. And Allison Bailey wins employment tribunal case backed by JK Rowling: employer ordered to compensate her for putting her 'under investigation' because of her gender critical views. At the suggestion of Stonewall, who comes out of it with her reputation in tatters

CLOSES TAVISTOCK, CHILDREN'S TRANSITION CLINIC: 'AFFIRMATIVE' APPROACH (DRUGS AND SURGERY) IS DANGEROUS FOR YOUNG PATIENTS The news is sensational: the British National Health Service (NHS) has ordered the closure of the Tavistock & Portman gender clinic for failing to ensure the safety of young patients, most of whom are girls (full article here). The clinic has been accused by several parties of hastily initiating many minors, most of them suffering from spectrum disorders [...].

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 [...]

Petrillo's stolen records: 'But I also won as a man'. Is this true? Here's the fact-checking

While the Olympic Committee announces a change in the guidelines on the participation of male bodies in women's sports, Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo aspires to participate in the Paralympic Games in the women's category. To those who accuse her of wanting to win easily, she replies that she was winning even before the transition. But this is not the case: here is an analysis of Petrillo's times and how they are evaluated in the male and female categories respectively

After the international federations of swimming, cycling and other sports, even the Olympic Committee is backtracking on the 'inclusive' sport of male bodies in women's sports. Francesco Ricci Bitti at the head of ASOIF, the association that brings together the international federations of summer Olympic sports, announced at a recent conference the need to review the current rules on the participation of transgender athletes, especially MtF, men who 'identify as women'. Francesco Ricci Bitti said, "According to the human rights approach [...]

Open field, closed lists

The tiger's eye does not want to see that you can reassemble and recombine the line-up all you want, but if the faces and names remain the same you have very little credibility. And if the only goal recognisable to most of the electorate is to bar the way for your political opponent - for once a woman, which makes it all the more surreal - your chances of success are not very good.

Work is in progress on the construction of the large rassemblement or open camp (the wide one has been discontinued). The discussion is only between men (with the partial exception of Emma Bonino) and the cement that holds the coalition project together is 'stopping Meloni': there is little discussion of political programmes, and what Calenda, Fratoianni and Di Maio may have in common is all to be understood. Observers and sociologists of politics scoff to point out that building a project 'against' [...].

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 [...]

Madonna mistress sadomasochism
A bare-breasted Madonna dressed as an S&M mistress paraded on the shoulders of a group of protesters during the Pride in Cremona. These are the reflections of Daniela Tuscano
Maria vulva sacra, Our Lady of Milk, is one of the oldest and most venerated icons, especially in the Middle East and Ethiopia, where Christianity took root from the first century. Even today, the Grotto of Milk in Jerusalem is the destination of incessant pilgrimages of women expecting or wishing to become mothers. Every 29 April, the Orthodox Church celebrates with a splendid hymn the breasts of Mary, the 'life-giving Spring' that lifts the sick from their beds, frees the afflicted, strengthens the frail, [...]

UK: stop to psychological 'treatments' for homosexuals. Which, however, remain valid for gender dysphoria
A new law is preparing to ban 'reparative' therapies for gays and lesbians. On the other hand, there is no stop to treatment for those suffering from gender identity: here the psychological approach remains the first choice. To assimilate the two conditions is a serious mistake, which responds to ideology and not to the real needs of the people involved
Britain, like recently Canada, France and New Zealand, is also about to pass a law banning reparative or conversion therapy, i.e. psychological and/or psychiatric treatment aimed at attempting to change a gay or lesbian person's sexual orientation. But the law will NOT cover so-called gender identity. In a nutshell, the ban will only apply to attempts to bring a homosexual orientation back to heterosexual 'normality' -a veritable form of torture- while the [...]

Generation Porn
A young woman tells how the consumption of pornography has influenced her sexuality and relationships, distancing her from the truth of her body. Convinced to believe that "porn is sex and sex is porn", her only desire is to please and look cool, accepting male violence as normal.
As in second-wave feminism, the issue of sexuality has returned to the forefront of girls' minds. Intensely practised in the 1970s, that territory was later abandoned in order to invest energies in other themes, first and foremost that of work. In the meantime, pornography has spread, especially since the birth of the web, reaching unimaginable levels of diffusion, heavily influencing the free search for pleasure of girls and adolescents. If for males the models borrowed from consumed pornography [...]

Self-id is a disaster for transgender people: Debbie Hayton speaks out
One of the UK's most famous transwomen, the journalist attacks the draft law promoted by the Scottish government. She insists that this innovation would be ill-advised for T people, not just women. And she sides with JK Rowling.
For transgender people like me, the Scottish government's bill to reform the Gender Recognition Act is a disaster. If passed unamended, the bill would introduce 'self-id', wiping out the checks and balances that make the gender reassignment process trustworthy in the eyes of the public. This is not an insignificant administrative detail: allowing any man to actually call himself a woman just because he wants to is an affront to the [...]

Lesbians against the transition of girls and boys
Lesbians United was set up in the USA to raise the alarm about the serious risks of the early medicalisation of children with 'gender dysphoria'. Which, they say, "is a scam". In the hope that the American gay and lesbian movement, which is highly critical of the trans-industry, will finally break its silence and listen.
Lesbians United, a US lesbian organisation, launched a public information campaign entitled "Understanding the transition of minors" through social media and the organisation's website. Lesbians United's social media posts are accompanied by colourful graphics, with targeted slogans such as 'Gender dysphoria is a scam' and 'Join the movement against medical malpractice'. Their targets include pharmaceutical companies, gender clinics and the American Psychiatric Association. "Lesbians are being pushed to 'transition,'" reads [...]

Spain. Psychologist denounced by transactivists. She risks suspension
Carola López Moya, a feminist and leftist, thinks that people with dysphoria should accept themselves by breaking gender cages and without medicalisation. T associations have denounced her, saying her approach is "conversion therapy". She risks a fine of up to 120,000 euros as well as suspension of her activity.
While in countries that were the first to adopt medical protocols (puberty blockers, cross-test hormones) for the transition of minors - such as Sweden and Norway - there is a return to the psychological approach in the first instance, in other countries where peak transitions have recently been achieved, talk therapy is still considered conversion therapy. This Spanish case is exemplary. Solidarity with Carola López Moya. A left-wing feminist psychologist and critic of gender identity is the first [...]

No longer 'female' or 'male', but 'assigned-o F or M at birth': the bible of psychiatry yields to the trans-trend
The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders -DSM-V-, the most widely used by psychiatrists, adapts its terminology to the demands of transgender activists. Favouring the 'affirmative' approach and the use of puberty blockers, hormones and surgery for those suffering from gender dysphoria.
The diagnostic manual most commonly used by psychiatrists yields to the demands of transgender activists, replacing for example 'born female' with 'individual assigned female at birth'. A language that is no longer neutral and that more easily leads to puberty blockers, hormones and surgery. The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders - also known as the DSM - will use the new terminology to describe 'gender dysphoria'. This is the language used by transgender activists under the banner of the so-called 'affirmative model' of care, [...]

Detransition: first scientific study
Conducted by psychiatrist Lisa Littman, who interviewed 100 detransitioners, the research highlights the complexity of these experiences. Doubts about the usefulness and effectiveness of pharmacological and surgical "therapies" are increasingly well-founded. Let us see why
After a year-long scientific evaluation, the results of the first systematic research on detransitioners have been published. The study by the American psychiatrist Lisa Littman is entitled "Subjects treated for gender dysphoria with medical and/or surgical transition who subsequently underwent detransition: Survey of 100 detransitioners" (full text here) Unlike previous studies, this research is conducted exclusively on people who underwent medicalisation for a diagnosis of gender dysphoria, and subsequently had [...].

Paraphilias, the eroticization of death
The normalisation of sexual perversion and gender identity, sold as a defence of human rights, actually takes us far from our humanity, from relationships, from connection with others. It is a technological dystopia that kills our species. We must fight to choose life
by Jennifer Bilek The equating of paraphilias with healthy sexuality is very dangerous, and is done under the umbrella of 'gender identity'. It passes itself off as a human rights movement, but in reality it is dehumanisation. This is no accident. Gender identity', promoted by elites involved in the normalisation of transsexualism and transhumanism, is part of a techno-medical complex that uses the web to promote its ideology. The main factors that normalise paraphilias [...]

Finland. Children with gender dysphoria, new guidelines: more psychological help, less hormones
Psychological therapies, for years stigmatised as conversion therapies, are once again the first option for girls with gender dysphoria in Finland. Hormones for minors have come to a halt in many western countries. And in Italy?
Many of the pioneering countries in the hormone treatment of children are revising their guidelines to start the transition. In Sweden, under-16s can no longer be treated with drugs; in the UK, after the landmark Keira Bell ruling (see here), a court ruling is required; in Finland, psychotherapeutic treatments are again being favoured, with hormone therapy being used only as a last resort. In Italy the use of puberty blockers on children is allowed with a simple [...].

Nobody was born in the 'wrong body'
The idea that all people have an innate 'gender identity' has recently been advocated by many health professionals and leading medical organisations. This term is commonly used to refer to the 'inner, deeply rooted' sense of self that says whether one is male or female (or, in the case of children, a boy or a girl), both or neither. It has become commonplace to claim that this sense of identity can be reliably articulated by children as young as three years old. [...]

What is gender?
"If gender identity is a spectrum, then we are all 'non-binary' because none of us fit into the points represented by the extremes of that spectrum. Each one of us will exist at a unique point on the spectrum." Rebecca Reilly-Cooper, philosopher and lecturer at the University of Warwick, reveals the fallacy of the concept of gender as a spectrum.
"What is gender?" This is a question that goes to the heart of feminist theory and practice, proving to be central to current activist debates on social justice issues concerning class, identity and privilege. In everyday conversations the word 'gender' is a synonym for what would more accurately be called 'sex'. Perhaps because of a vague squeamishness about pronouncing a word that also describes sexual intercourse, the word gender is euphemistically used to refer to the given [...]
