UK: gender identity will no longer be discussed at school

A new crackdown by the Sunak government after the Cass report, which also warns of the risks of social transition of minors, the so-called 'alias identity' that has already been adopted by many Italian schools: in the classroom, it will no longer be taught that one can change sex and sex education will be calibrated according to age. And never without parental consent

After years and years of transactivists from associations such as Stonewall and Mermaids making the rounds with their sex education courses in English schools of all levels, Rishi Sunak's government announced today with Education Minister Gillian Keegan new mandatory guidelines for schoolchildren and students on these issues. Classrooms will no longer teach that you can change your gender identity, as has been the case until now [...]

From Gaza to western delivery rooms, Judith Butler sees fascists everywhere

Fascists, of course, we gender-critical feminists too, 'allies of the right and the Vatican'. The Californian intellectual, renouncing all philosophical subtlety, compiles a political agenda that coincides with the platform of the university students in struggle. And he calls for an alliance between trans people, antifa, the pro-Pal movement, the homeless, black people, migrants and even women - understood as one of many minorities - to build 'a radical democracy inspired by the ideals of socialism'. An account of the Bologna leg of his triumphant European tour

Perhaps today one could speak of the 'Butler Agenda': its platform coincides perfectly with the platform of struggle of the-students throughout the West, with little certainty as to whether the chicken or the egg was born first. Certainly Judith Butler is to all intents and purposes the mother of Gender Theory to which these student(s) (a minority anyway) enthusiastically adhere; in turn these student(s) with their mobilisations are a source of inspiration for Butler, their platforms are also a [...]

Not-Mother's Day

Natural motherhood is right-wing, biotech motherhood is left-wing because it is thought of as a right and not suffered as destiny: the diatribe on this issue between radical feminism and transfeminism could be summarised in this way. It's anything but new, but it has become radicalised. Not least because the context has changed so much: a baby boom is one thing, births at an all-time low is another

The other day Minister Eugenia Roccella was prevented from saying what she had to say, right or wrong, at the States General of Natality. The students who were protesting against her were allowed to express their demands - one of their delegates went on stage, and she also included Gaza in her speech, right or wrong - but this was evidently not enough because the minister was prevented from speaking anyway. Perhaps I am wrong, but if I were convinced of the [...]

Trans surgery increases suicide risk

A very recent study of 90 million patients shows that trans-operated people run a 'significantly higher risk of suicide, death, self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder' and require psychiatric support. Thus, the completion of the long and arduous transition with 'affirmative' surgery does not ensure the achievement of the hoped-for well-being

"Gender affirmation surgery is associated with a significantly higher risk of suicide, death, suicide/self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder than control groups in this real-world database. Since suicide is one of the most common causes of death among adolescents and middle-aged individuals, it is clear that we must work to prevent these unfortunate outcomes. This further reinforces the need for comprehensive psychiatric care in the years following surgery for [...]

Saman: 'their culture' as a mitigating factor

The girl's marriage was 'arranged and not forced' and in the judgement 'the culture of the offender must also be taken into account': the reasons for the sentence (signed by female judges) for the brutal murder of the young Pakistani girl leave one bewildered. As well as the mother's self-sexism that would be the material executor of the crime. At this rate, according to Unicef projections, girls will continue to be sold to men for at least the next 300 years

Pictured is a poster with Saman's face composed of photos of many women victims of male violence. The story of Saman Abbas is an open wound. Killed by her family three years ago, her concealed body found more than a year after her death. At the beginning of this year, the funeral, with great public participation. A few days ago came the grounds for the verdict in the first-instance trial of Saman's family last December: life imprisonment to [...].

A few words to Mr Gennarone (he doesn't deserve any more)

The essence of fascism is to prevent anyone from speaking out. Whoever calls a woman ****** intends to intimidate, devalue and above all silence her. Ergo: a sexist cannot call himself an anti-fascist because sexism is incompatible with antifascism.

A few words to rapper Gennarone, author of fine lyrics (e.g. 'Stile foggiano, la mia terra la amo, dall'appennino dauno alle terre del Gargano. Take my hand ready for the journey through the land we live in') who during the 1 May concert in Foggia among many other things said that 'Italy is living in the shadow of fascism thanks to that ***** of Giorgia Meloni'. Just to remind him that: a) the essence of all fascism and totalitarianism is to prevent anyone from [...].

On abortion only propaganda: 'Fake amendment, good for election campaign'

The recently approved paragraph authorising pro-life associations to enter counselling centres does not actually add to or change what is already provided for in Law 194. Marina Terragni and Francesca Izzo explain. And Pro Vita also hastens to clarify: we will not enter the consultatories. The topic is good for the political clash in view of the European elections. But the law remains as it is

It is sad to have to talk about abortion on command: abortion is a complex and painful experience for the vast majority of women. "For whose pleasure am I aborting?": Carla Lonzi summarised the issue in this way. It is very sad that the issue is agitated in the election campaign, on both sides, and that we feel obliged to say something. In recent days the right wing has proposed and pushed through with confidence an amendment to the PNRR that would authorise pro-life [...].

Letter to Rishi Sunak: we need a public enquiry into the influence of transgender ideology

One hundred and thirty British MPs, doctors, psychiatrists, academics and detransitioners - among them JK Rowling - have written a letter to the Prime Minister calling on him to examine the 'pervasive influence' of transgender ideology in schools and the National Health Service and to ascertain responsibility for the harm done to thousands of girls and boys

"Rishi, if you read this petition please do the right thing and urgently initiate a public enquiry. The welfare of our children depends on it." Writing this is psychotherapist James Esses, coordinator of the Biological Reality Statement and one of the signatories to an appeal to the British Prime Minister after the major scandal of the treatment of 'confused and vulnerable' children by medical professionals, made evident by Hilary Cass's report. Among the first signatories is JK [...]

Is violence structural to transfeminism?
Paola Pieri, from the group MaternaMente, recounts the violence she suffered in Florence from trans activists
Text by Paola Pieri, of the group MaternaMente. Last Thursday, 23 March, I went in front of the Careggi hospital, here in Florence, where a small garrison called by 'Resistance to the nanoworld' was being held, attended by Silvia Guerini, author of the book 'From the neutral body to the post-human cyborg, critical reflections on gender ideology'. Presidium called in such a place because it is where dozens of minors and others with 'gender dysphoria', treated with puberty blockers, hormones and other planned [...].

Girls removing their breasts
Transactivist propaganda invites girls uncomfortable with their female form to compress their breasts with special bands (binders), the first step towards the final mastectomy. The same misogynistic violence as the traditional 'breast ironing' practised in Africa. In the UK, the publicly funded charity Mermaids is under indictment for sending binders to teenage girls against parental advice.
Breast ironing is a horrible practice still in use in some regions of Africa, particularly in Cameroon. It involves the destruction of the breasts of adolescent girls by red-hot instruments -old irons, spatulas, stones or shells- and is generally practised by the adult women of the family. The purpose is to make the girls less attractive in order to save them from rape and early pregnancies that could tarnish the honour of the family group. The practice causes serious damage to the health of teenage girls, [...].

Tagging those who criticise trans people is a violation of human rights
An important ruling by the English Court of Appeal: those who criticise transactivism or trans people will no longer be able to be registered for "non-illegal acts of hatred", a category invented by the police that, according to the Court, violates the European Convention on Human Rights. Starting with freedom of speech
from a post by Giovanni Dall'Orto The English Court of Appeal ruled this morning that the practice of filing as "non-crime hate incidents" criticism of transactivism or trans people infringes the European Convention on Human Rights (see here). The case arose after a trans activist reported to the police several tweets (including a foul-mouthed limerick) that she deemed "transphobic". The category of "non-illegal offences" had been invented by the police [...]

New Forstater case in UK: lawyer sues Stonewall for 'inducing discrimination'
Allison Bailey was allegedly mobbed and discriminated against by her law firm for expressing her opposition to gender self-certification or self-id. A lesbian and founder of the LGBT Alliance, she sued the firm and Stonewall as well. Who, she is convinced, actively worked for her "punishment".
Stonewall will face a court case for encouraging the law firm where Allison Bailey, a lesbian lawyer, works to issue a disciplinary measure against her just because she had criticised transgender activists. The lawyer filed a discrimination complaint inspired by the case of Maya Forstater, the researcher at the Center for Global Development in London who lost her job for expressing her opposition to gender self-certification (see here). On 10 June, an appeals court ruled that Maya Forstater had [...].

Kathleen Stock has resigned: 'The witch is dead'.
This is how the students of the University of Sussex, who had threatened the teacher and demanded her dismissal, celebrated her resignation. The decision was taken after "an absolutely horrible time for me and my family". Tiepid support from the university, while other academics attack her: her defence of sex against gender reinforces "the patriarchal status quo".
Kathleen Stock, the philosophy lecturer at the centre of a controversy over her views on gender identification and transgender rights, has announced her resignation from the University of Sussex. Stock's resignation comes three weeks after a protest by some students on the university's Brighton campus, which included posters and graffiti calling for her dismissal. Stock believes that gender identity matters no more than biological sex "when it comes to laws and policies" and that people [...]

An anti-censorship desk to protect lecturers gagged by queers in universities
Transactivist censorship is rapidly spreading in Italian universities, preventing the free flow of thought. What is needed is a free speech law modelled on the British Higher Education Bill. And right now it should be possible to denounce intimidation in safety, without reprisals and dismissal.
In British and American academia, the deplatforming (gagging) imposed on teachers critical of free gender identity (self-id) is a well-established phenomenon (we have reported on it several times, see here and here). It has been one of the main signs of the enormous lobbying power of transactivism. The case of Kathleen Stock, feminist and lesbian lecturer at the University of Sussex, probably marks the point of no return: you can read the story here. Stock came under very heavy attack from a trans collective at the university, [...]

Hormones to children: UK judges wash their hands of them. Court of Appeal ruling on Keira Bell case
In response to the Tavistock Clinic's appeal on the Keira Bell ruling, the Court threw the ball back to the doctors: it is they, not the courts, who must decide whether a minor is able to give consent to experimental 'therapy' that blocks development and initiates transition. But the debate is now open. And the fear of lawsuits by repentant minors -detransitioners- induces the medical class to caution.
The English Court of Appeal has partially overturned the judgement that had given right to the young detransitioner Keira Bell (here is her story) against the Tavistock Clinic that, when she was 16 years old, had hastily introduced her to therapy with puberty blockers. With a pilatesque and merely formalistic judgement, the Court threw the ball back to the doctors: it is up to them, and not to the courts, to establish whether a minor can access this 'therapy' with hormone blockers. It must be the doctors and not [...]

CBS news under queer attack for a broadcast on detransitioners
An episode on detransitioners on 60 Minutes, the historic programme of the American channel CBS News, was the object of warnings and threats from transactivists already in the preparation phase. The diktat is always the same: keep quiet. Only glittery propaganda allowed
The strategy of queer activism always orders silence. If politicians are discussing a bill to introduce gender self-determination, it is preferable that the media do not talk about it, and if they do talk about it, they have to say that the bill is only "against discrimination of LGBT people" and keep quiet about the rest. Any opinion that is even the slightest bit dissonant is silenced with insults, threats (chilling effect) and blackout (no platform). All this happens also in Italy, see for example [...]

Vancouver: father jailed for naming female teenage daughter in transition
A ghost is roaming the world: gender identity, an intangible surrogate for the soul whereby anyone can decide which gender to belong to regardless of biological sex. A second birth in the self-id that feeds a business in constant growth - a real production of T-persons - whose clients are more and more often little girls and boys who are precociously directed in this way and hormonised also thanks to the free access of propaganda in schools - not to mention the social networks [...].

Paris, if the word 'woman' is scary: exhibition of female portraits vandalised by transfeminists
"The time has come for women to regain their place in the public space. We must no longer be afraid in common spaces. We must live without the fear of going out, day or night. We must be free to dress as we like, to go to the places we like, without curfews. Public space must be shared, between women and men. We must be free. It is the aggressors who should not be, it is their actions that should be condemned, not [...]

Vancouver: violent trans-gender squadron against gender-critical pacifist VIDEO
For those who don't believe in the violence of queer transactivists: this video shows the brutal trans-square assault on Christophe Elston, a man from Vancouver (Canada) who has long been in the crosshairs of the ARF for his support of JK Rowling and his fight against puberty blockers for girls and boys. A poster made and put up by Elston, simply with the words "I love JK Rowlings", was vandalised and immediately covered up by Vancouver City Council billboard officers [...]

Britain, Lgbtq+ against women: stop public funding for anti-violence homes because they 'do not include' men
In Great Britain, despite the increase of domestic violence during the lockdown -one feminicide every 3 days, the same average as in Italy- two shelters for battered women were dismantled because they were not 'gender neutral' enough. Brighton City Council told Rise that despite 25 years of shelter and despite being trans-inclusive, it remains 'much more accessible to women'. In order to include "both heterosexual and gay male survivors" council services will have to become "gender-neutral". In the [...]
