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 [...]

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 [...]

Transactivists 'hang' Spanish vice-premier Carmen Calvo for her criticism of the Trans Law
A puppet with the mask of Carmen Calvo, socialist vice-premier of Spain, was found hanging from a tree in Plaza 8 de Marzo in Santiago de Compostela. On the puppet a sign: "I am lost... Where is the patriarchy?" (here the article of El Mundo). Carmen Calvo was "executed" for her highly critical stance on the so-called Ley Trans, which aims to introduce in Spain the free choice of gender identity (self-id) without any judgment, expertise or act [...]
