Citizenship Income Reform: taking sexual difference into account

The employment situation and wage levels of women -with strong regional variability- are very different between women and men. This was also the case for income, which also had a positive effect on the birth rate. This is why changing the institution requires a careful assessment of the so-called 'gender impact': an 'equal' reform could have unequal effects according to gender

The need for a citizenship income reform is now recognised across the board, albeit with different approaches and solutions. The Meloni government has presented its plan in progress. But the consideration of what is called the 'gender impact' -that is, the evaluation of the effects of the reform on women- still seems insufficient, generally underestimated by analyses. In a social situation and in a labour market like the Italian one, where women are strongly disadvantaged both in [...]

Prostitution 'clients' know full well that they are committing violence

Research on sex buyers shows that men are fully aware that prostitution is violence, that criminal organisations keep women in fear and that there is no 'regulation' that holds. But they only stop if they risk a criminal conviction, as is the case in Sweden, Norway, Canada, France, Ireland, Israel and other countries that have introduced the abolitionist model. Otherwise, they continue to consider date rape as their right

by Julie Bindel Germany is known as the brothel of Europe. It is a hard-won title. With more than 3,000 brothels across the country, and 500 in Berlin alone, its sex trade is worth more than £11 billion a year. Prostitution, in all its forms, has been legal in Germany since the end of World War II. Recently, however, attitudes are changing. People and politicians are asking the government to take notice of the so-called 'pimp state' and [...]

Iranian Beauty

In Iran, female beauty becomes the lever of a real revolution: nothing like the mortification-commodification of bodies that is propagated as freedom in the West. The struggle to be able to be a woman reveals the'hypocrisy of the queer

It is now almost two months since the Iranian girls' revolt against the veil began, an irrepressible wave that every day produces new images, new content, a breath of fresh air compared to certain narratives about women in the Islamic world, but also a mirror that reveals how much of an artefact there is behind so many politically correct watchwords of intersectional feminism or transfeminism. First, the veil is not a free choice, nor is that feminist empowerment about which we have been bombarded by [...]

Belgium, new feminicide law. To be studied

In Europe, male violence is the leading cause of death for women between the ages of 16 and 44. Belgium equips itself with a new law that for the first time legally defines feminicides in order to develop policies based on official statistics. Keeping in mind that violence is a device of male domination

Stop the slaughter of women. This is the meaning of the new 'law on the prevention of and fight against feminicides, gender-based crimes and the violence that precedes them' adopted at first reading in the Council of Ministers on 25 October in Belgium. Deposed by the Secretary of State for Gender Equality, Sarah Schlitz (Ecolo/Verdi), the framework law for the first time legally defines feminicides in order to develop combat policies based on official statistics. And in [...]

The name of the premier

Giorgia Meloni is not a feminist. Her history is not this. She has not shared in the long battles over language, over declension into the feminine instead of the neuter-masculine. But language today is a battleground that structures the most important political issues. And it deserves further reflection on her part

Giorgia Meloni is not a feminist. That is not her story. No woman on the right or centre-right who has held important political office, from Thatcher to Merkel, has ever called herself a feminist. Hence the non-sensitivity to the feminine declination of office, to which feminism instead attaches importance. Even if Angela Merkel at the end of her long chancellorship, during a meeting with the writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, agreed to call herself a feminist. According to Alice Schwarzer, founder of the [...]

England: new guidelines for 'trans' minors

While Spain is about to approve the horrifying Ley Trans, which allows the transition of girls from the age of 12 even if their parents oppose it, the English health service closes once and for all with the so-called pharmacological 'affirmative approach' (puberty blockers) practised for years and points to psychological treatment as the priority route. And in Italy? For the Italian Society of Paediatrics, these drugs do not cause any problems and their effects are completely 'reversible', a fact denied by several studies

The English health service (NHS) has published a new draft of guidelines for the treatment of children with gender dysphoria (full text here), pending the results of the Cass Review, an independent enquiry commissioned by the British health minister and led by paediatrician Hilary Cass (see here), which will lead to a complete restructuring of services dedicated to gender non-conforming children. After the closure of the Tavistock clinic -which we told you about here-, NHS puts a definitive end to the so-called [...]

Women-containers: pro-life and pro-utero for hire see eye to eye

For one and the other, the female body must make itself available to 'produce' the unborn child by renouncing the possibility of choice once pregnancy has begun. But a new life only really begins when there is a maternal yes: a fact that is unattainable and unattainable by law. Otherwise the only possibility is compulsion.

At least three things can be said about the bill filed by Maurizio Gasparri to amend Article 1 of the Civil Code and introduce into our legal system the recognition of the legal capacity of the conceived 'with the intention of preventing voluntary abortion in any form, whether legal or clandestine'. The first: it is highly unlikely that the bill will reach parliamentary halls. The immediate consequence of its approval would be the substantial inapplicability of law 194 because abortion would in fact be tantamount to murder. None of the majority forces [...]

The symbolic is political

Giorgia Meloni's 'no' to Silvio Berlusconi's wishes has been described as a nemesis: a young woman who sinks the old leader -'dragon devourer of virgins' defined him as the 'ex-wife' - and does not shy away from friends and foes alike. An unexpected twist in our misogynistic politics. Although the future premier has never called herself a feminist

Pompous, overbearing, arrogant and insulting. And she shortly replies that she is not to be blackmailed. In short, to paraphrase another famous exchange, 'not at disposal'. The major newspapers have already spoken of nemesis. The Cavaliere put under by a woman much younger than him, Giorgia Meloni, who at 45 could be the first to lead a government in Italy: hard accounts with her father, after all, are part of her biography. On the opposite front, the [...]

Women attacked from left and right: the ash on the head of the New York Times
As the organ of the liberals and woke culture, the great US newspaper has been undertaking a vigorous change of course for a few months now, admitting its own excesses and the misogyny of the new progressive course committed to wiping out women. While waiting for the self-critical wind to blow in Europe too
by Pamela Paul Perhaps it makes sense that women - complacent and pleasant-looking creatures, selfless and just as pretty - were the ones who finally brought our polarised country together. Because the far right and the far left have found the one thing they can agree on: women don't matter. The position of the right is best known, the movement has been aggressively dedicated for decades to depriving women of basic rights. Thanks also to two judges [...]

Kathleen Stock: 5 tips to keep transactivist troublemakers quiet
The lecturer forced to resign for saying that biological sex exists explains how to deal with harassing transactivism: just like a mother dealing with a wayward child or rebellious teenager. An ironic guide to saving your life
Philosopher Kathleen Stock became known outside academic circles after she was forced to resign from her professorship at the University of Sussex with threats and defamation by transactivists for expressing critical views on gender identity (see here). While similar cases are happening all over the world, including Italy and Europe (see here and here), in Anglo-Saxon countries lecturers are organising themselves to fight against the censorship of gender-critical feminism. In the article we present Kathleen [...]

Adele is also a Terf: you can't call yourself a woman
The BRIT Awards, the most prestigious music award in the UK, abolished the male and female categories in the name of gender neutrality. But Adele, this year's winner, says she is proud to be a woman. For this she is accused of transphobia and overwhelmed by hatred.
As was the case last year with the Italian edition of the X Factor, the BRIT Awards 2022 - the most prestigious music award in the UK - abolished the male and female categories in homage to gender fluidity. So no more "Best Female Solo Artist" and "Best Male Solo Artist", but a gender neutral "Best Artist", whose winner was Adele. Collecting the award, she commented: "I understand why the name of this award has changed, but I love being a woman, and being a woman artist. [...]

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 [...]

Uk. You say no baby is born in the wrong body? To jail!
Jennifer Swayne, a feminist from Newport, Wales, was arrested for transphobic hate crime. She had put up stickers and posters with slogans like 'no men in women's prisons' and 'human beings never change sex'. The police searched his home and seized a book critical of the transition of minors. "It is my thinking that is under indictment", she says, "not what I have done".
Welsh feminist Jennifer Swayne was arrested in Newport for transphobic hate crime, on charges of criminal damage and illegal posting. Police had received reports of 'offensive' material being distributed around the city. Swayne was accused of spreading "anti-transgender" messages. She defended herself by saying that the stickers and posters she had put up were not anti-transgender but simply in support of women. Fair Cop, an association that fights in defence of freedom of [...]

We women, the 'Privileged
Transactivism defines being born a woman as a 'privilege' that must also be open to those who have not had this unspeakable good fortune. It's the old envious story, or patriarchy. But talking about privilege is a step forward in clarity. If the world needs women more and more, then the real women will be 'them'.
There is something good here. In these years we are resisting the invasion of being a woman by men. In reality it is just the latest figure in the old envious story of all time, or patriarchy. Men have always wanted to appropriate the being-woman and her creative power, exploiting women's bodies in every way and occupying the centre of the world. The good thing is that today language reveals this movement in all its clarity. Today a significant number of men are asking to [...]

Don't say woman: The Economist against neo-language
Referring to The Lancet, which was flooded with protests for using the expression 'bodies with vaginas' instead of women, the British weekly attacked the linguistic innovations against women, calling them 'dehumanising'. White fly among the big western media who continue to censor any voice critical of the transactivist diktat. For opportunism, or fear
'Bodies with vaginas' is a strange way of referring to half the human race. Yet it was the expression that The Lancet, a medical journal, chose to publish on the cover of its latest issue, explaining to readers that 'historically, the anatomy and physiology' of such bodies had been overlooked. After complaints about dehumanising language, The Lancet apologised. But it is not alone: a growing number of officials and organisations find themselves speechless when it comes to using the [...]

Save us from the Taliban. But also from Judith Butler
Pakistani Bina Shah's splendid reply to the Californian philosopher who, in a controversial article in the Guardian, stated that 'the category of woman must be redefined' to include those who 'perceive themselves' as such. But Afghan women, says Shah, are oppressed precisely because of their actual female bodies. A harsh invective against Western neo-colonialism, that of gendering and transactivism, which is looming on the horizon.
In a much-discussed article published in the Guardian, Judith Butler stated that 'the category of women needs to be rethought', as well as claiming that gender-critical feminism is allied to fascism. And here is Pakistani Bina Shah's reply. Yesterday I wrote an angry tweet. Afghan woman: Save me from the Taliban Judith Butler: We'll redefine womanhood, you'll be fine It went like this: 'I just need to know how Judith Butler's definition of woman applies to Afghan women [...].

Tokyo: Tranny Hubbard loses but doesn't let the women win
Paradoxically, 'Laurel's' defeat is more useful to the cause of transhumanism than her victory. The transhumanists will use it to 'prove' that if a tranny couldn't win against women, then it's true that hormones are enough to make a male body 'equal' to a female body.
Gavin "Laurel" Hubbard, as predicted - not only by the IOC but also by the Feminist Post - was eliminated in the Olympic women's weightlifting final +87 kg (super heavyweight), after a failed attempt to lift 120 kg and two failed attempts at 125 kg in the snatch. The women's weightlifting final was curiously not broadcast live on the official RAI channel, despite being described as "of historic significance" precisely because of Hubbard's presence as "the first openly transgender athlete to compete [...]

German parliament debates gender identity law on 19 May: lobbyists on the attack everywhere
Supported by Die Grünen (Greens), FDP and Die Linke (Socialist Party), the bill introducing gender self-certification has arrived in the Bundestag. For the first time, public funding is denied to the Lesbian Spring Festival, a historic meeting since 1974
In Germany, from 1980 to 2011, the law on transsexuals or 'TSG' underwent several changes. Currently, the law is in line with similar laws in other European countries, where the "sex change" can only take place after two consultations with different doctors who are close to the issue of "feeling the opposite sex" or transsexuality, not necessarily psychologists. This is followed by the final step in court, which generally takes between eight weeks and six months and costs about €3,300. The medical treatment, [...]

Irreparable harm: the new violence against girls and young women
Abigail Shrier is a freelance journalist who has recently written mainly for the Wall Street Journal. The idea for her book Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters (Regnery Publishing, among the best books of the year according to The Times and The Sunday Times), an essay analysing the more than 3,000 per cent increase in gender dysphoria among teenage girls, came to her after she wrote an article about new legislation in several US states that requires the [...]

RADICAL FEMINISM IS WINNING ALL OVER THE WORLD
I think a lot of us are feeling pretty down right now. Covids, stressful political changes, lockdowns, having to wear a mask everywhere we go (and hardly ever leaving the house!) and I could go on. But if there is a glimmer of light in the midst of all this misery it is the remarkable success of feminism worldwide - in particular, radical feminism. Don't get me wrong: feminism still has its work cut out for it, both in the ongoing struggle for [...]
