Hormone-addicted children: an in vivo trial. Who will pay for it?

Hilary Cass, the British paediatrician who produced a monumental report on 'affirmative therapy' for minors does not mince words: those children 'were used as footballs'. There has never been any evidence that puberty blockers work, that they reduce suicide risk, that they increase patients' well-being: far from it. Will those who, in the absence of scientific certainty, have inflicted these treatments, who have even persecuted so many people of goodwill determined to expose the scandal in the name of truth, go unpunished? Keira Bell, the best known detransitioner, hopes for criminal consequences

Englishwoman Keira Bell, a former patient of the Tavistock Clinic in London, is certainly the most famous of the de-transitioners. After the publication of the Cass Review she tells The Times that she would like to see criminal proceedings started so that the children treated by the clinic with puberty blockers and hormones can finally get justice. Keira is now 27, judges the treatment she was subjected to -blockers, hormones, removal of breasts- "experimental at best, destructive at worst" and believes the professionals have [...]

Locked in a fence. Like in Kabul

Open letter to Mayor Gualtieri and other competent authorities on the incredible scene of discrimination in the Centocelle district in Rome: women isolated like unclean animals for the end of Ramadan celebrations. Who gave permission for this unacceptable demonstration? And what steps will be taken against this misogynistic barbarity?

To the Mayor of Rome Roberto Gualtieri To the President of Municipality V Mauro Caliste To the Equal Opportunities Commission of the Municipality of Rome and p.c. To the Minister for Equal Opportunities and the Family Eugenia Roccella To the Minister of the Interior Matteo Piantedosi Dear Mayor, dear President, dear members of the Equal Opportunities Commission, we are dismayed and shocked by the way in which the Municipality V of the Capital - Piazza dei Mirti, Centocelle district, a few metres from the school named after Artemisia Gentileschi - hosted the celebrations [...].

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 [...].

Spain: inmate pregnant with trans cellmate
The man -intact male body and no hormone therapy- had asked and obtained to be moved to the women's prison in Alicante because he 'self-perceived' to be a woman (self-id). A cellmate's pregnancy was the result. And the new Ley Trans, in force since December 2022, will make such transfers easier and more frequent
In the Alicante Cumplimiento Penitentiary Centre, known as Fontcalent Prison, an inmate identifying himself as a woman impregnated a cellmate. According to the account confirmed by several prison sources, the inmate had been serving a sentence in the male module of the prison for several years, but during his stay he started to identify himself as a woman. On his papers he continues to appear as a man and has never undergone hormone treatment, let alone surgery. [...]

Spain: Ley Trans at the centre of the election campaign
The popular Isabel Dìaz Ayuso, newly elected president of the Madrid region, promises that an eventual centre-right government will change the highly contested Ley Trans approved by the Sanchez government, which introduced free gender identity. In defence of the Constitution and above all the rights of women and children as well as freedom of opinion. Decisive theme in view of the political elections next 23 July
In Spain, biopolitical issues have also become major topics and are playing a decisive role in the election campaign. In the run-up to the general elections on 23 July, there is already talk of changing the laws on gender identity, less than six months after the approval of the Ley Trans wanted by ex-minister Irene Montero of Podemos, a political formation that almost died out in the last local elections. The first to speak about it was the newly elected president of the Madrid region, Isabel Díaz Ayuso del [...]

Spain: woke sex also among the reasons for the end of Podemos
Ley Trans. Only Yes is Yes' law that reduced penalties for sex offenders. And now also a Manifesto for Sex Education for All* that jeopardises the safety of girls and boys. The spirit is always the same: a queer sexuality promoted by outgoing minister Irene Montero. Which, however, voters and electors apparently do not like. An analysis by lecturer Juana Gallego, feminist affected by the cancel culture
In yesterday's local elections in Spain, the left lost disastrously - as in Italy, for that matter. In particular, there was the stinging defeat of Podemos, which in many regions almost went extinct. In the analyses of the Spanish vote, perhaps not enough emphasis is given to two manifesto-laws of Podemos, and in particular of the transfeminist minister Irene Montero: the 'Only Yes is Yes' law, which reduced penalties for sexual crimes, and the Ley Trans, which [...]

Online porn: protecting children. After the UK, France and Spain are also moving
Free access to violent content offered by the porn-lobby is one of the most serious problems for the very young generation, who are deeply disturbed in the development of their sexuality. And it is accompanied by psychological disorders and a staggering increase in sexual abuse. But the sites oppose any attempt to impose age verification. It is time to talk about it also in Italy
We have already told you about the British government's measures to protect children from online pornography, which include fines of millions of pounds and the blocking in the UK of sites that do not comply with the new rules. Now France is also preparing a crackdown on the online porn giants: Arcom, the French audiovisual and digital police, has asked the Paris Court of Justice to block the connection to several pornographic sites because of the lack of [...]

The global abolition of sex
The law just passed in Scotland replacing sex with free choice of gender. The one being passed in Spain. And Germany's project. In her article in Newsweek, Kara Dansky also warns the United States about self-id. But from Great Britain, Sweden and Finland come signals in stark contrast: the game is still to be played.
22 December was a black day for gender critical feminism: in spite of lively protests outside Parliament, Scotland passed the law allowing gender self-identification or self-id -without exception for sex offenders who will be able to freely access women's spaces by identifying themselves as women. Also in Spain, the Ley Trans, which has a very similar structure, has passed the first step in the lower house and is on its way to final approval in the coming weeks [...].

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- [...].

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 [...]

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 [...]

Purple avalanche in Madrid
No to the Ley Trans. Stop pornography, prostitution, uterus for rent. Spanish feminism united in a huge demonstration to impose a political agenda free from transfeminist and queer intrusiveness, sending a signal to women all over Europe.
2000 women according to government sources, 6000 participants, gathered in Madrid from all corners of the Spanish peninsula and islands. A meeting that surprised the feminists themselves, who wanted to give a strong signal: FEMINISTS ARE THERE. We are not the minority. A union that has had as its objective the vindication of the main forms of oppression of women that feminism wants to eradicate from Spanish society: -Prostitution and pornography -Other for rent -Gender as [...]

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 [...]

A feminist named Lorena
The Canary Islands passed a law allowing self-certification of gender. And only two days later, a murderer on trial for abusing and killing his cousin, declares himself a woman in order to escape the aggravating circumstances of a sexual offence. And to be detained in a women's prison. A case that shakes Spain
Feminists have been warning for a long time. And it is happening. For months Spanish feminism has been doing a great job of informing the public about the so-called "Ley Trans", which introduces the self-determination of "gender" -instead of sex- without a path of transition and psychological accompaniment, a proposal by Irene Montero, Podemos' Ministra De Igualdad. Madrid has made it clear that the proposal is not supported by the central government and has distanced itself from it, as stated by Vice-Premier Carmen Calvo, PSOE. Just a fortnight ago, [...]
