Mail-bombing to Repubblica: Unacceptable misinformation on puberty blockers

In an unacceptable article -without any reference to scientific data- Michela Marzano says that puberty blockers would be 'temporary and reversible' and would protect against suicide, but this is disproved by numerous studies.

Text for a mail-bombing, to be sent to the editor Maurizio Molinari m.molinari@repubblica.it Dear Director Molinari, we read Michela Marzano's article, entitled 'Nobody touches gender identity', published in your newspaper on Sunday 5 February. And we cannot fail to note with dismay that the author tackles the very delicate issue of 'dysphoric' minors without any scientific reference, claiming among other things that 'the suspension' induced by drugs that block puberty 'is temporary and reversible', that recourse to such drugs 'allows [...].

Birth from a dead 'surrogate mother

A professor at the University of Oslo proposes using the bodies of women in irreversible comas, which can be damaged without ethical complications, to carry out pregnancies for others. But also men in a vegetative state (so feminists don't get angry) by grafting embryos into their livers. And children? Theme not considered

It may have been inspired by Habla con ella, Pedro Almodovar's film in which the young dancer Alicia, in a coma due to an accident, becomes pregnant by Benigno, the nurse caring for her. Anna Smajdor, Professor of Medical Bioethics University of Oslo, takes up and elaborates on a suggestion made in 2000 by Israeli researcher Rosalie Ber "to circumvent the moral problems of gestational surrogacy" by using women in a persistent vegetative state (PVS) as surrogate wombs. To the practice she gives the [...]

Holland: if you block the development of girls and boys you push them to become trans

The protocol - pausing puberty to allow minors to 'choose' their sex - they invented. But even the Dutch now admit that in 9 out of 10 cases blockers no longer give time to 'decide' but are the start of the transition. A self-fulfilling prophecy. And that the effects of these drugs are by no means reversible

Amsterdam University Clinic UMC, a pioneer in the use of puberty blockers, has admitted that children taking these drugs may find themselves locked into increased medicalisation. The admission comes following the publication earlier this month of a new retrospective study examining 20 years of hormonal interventions known as the 'Dutch protocol', conducted on 1,766 children and adolescents between 1972 and 2018 at the famed Amsterdam clinic and published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine. But [...]

GenerAzioneD, Italian association of parents of minors who define themselves as 'trans', is founded

A guidance and information site to support and accompany mothers and fathers going through this complex experience: testimonies, interviews, and links to contribute to an in-depth debate that today does not find space in the mainstream media

The cultural, apolitical, non-denominational and non-profit association GenerAzioneD has been established. The association's primary aim is to inform about the problems of gender dysphoria/incongruence in children, adolescents and young adults. Through the dissemination of testimonies, news, national and international articles in translation and the promotion of opportunities for discussion, GenerAzioneD aims to foster the transparency necessary to ensure the best possible care for those affected. GenerAzioneD was in fact born from the meeting of some parents who shared the experience of having children [...]

Transgender' children: it's social contagion. Even the largest trans association admits it

Tik Tok, Youtube and others: the president of WPATH, the world association for trans health, forced to admit that influencers play a large part in the epidemic of transitions among minors, a phenomenon denied by Western progressives who brand every alarm as transphobia. But they do not stop pushing for medicalisation and early surgery

The Honourable Alessandro Zan, first signatory of the infamous bill on gender identity, which ended up in the knighthouse, had denied the dizzying increase in cases of transition of girls and boys, calling the news a 'dangerous statement'. In 2021 there were already numerous statistics indicating the extent of the problem, but apparently Zan was not aware of it - which is unacceptable - or pretended not to know, or more likely ideologically believed that the mere fact of posing the question should be considered proof [...].

The problem is not rooming-in but the loneliness of mothers

After the sad story of the baby who died next to his mother at the Pertini in Rome, for some the solution is to keep the babies in the nurseries and not in the room. But rooming-in was strongly advocated by women who used to be separated from their babies in hospital. It is, if anything, a question of allowing new mothers to have a spouse or wife to assist them. Especially in times of understaffing

Starting with the very painful case of the newborn baby who died at the Pertini hospital in Rome -probably by accidental suffocation, the judiciary will ascertain the causes: it could also be 'cot death' or something else- many and many conclude that rooming-in is a dangerous and wrong practice and that babies should stay in nurseries. I remember, however, that in the past women fought hard for rooming-in and for more than obvious reasons: not to be separated from the newborn after the long cohabitation [...].

Sex and gender: JK Rowling's essay

In her text, the writer explains in detail the reasons why she felt the need to address the trans issue, defying the violence of activists. A manifesto-writer for gender critical feminism translated into Italian by Alessandra Asteriti

Attacking JK Rowling can now also be a business. The latest initiative is that of a young Canadian imbecile art book creator who has decided to de-rowling Harry Potter by publishing a special edition of the saga on the cover of which the author's name disappears: $170 per copy for a despicable abuse of power. Let him keep all the copies in stock. Back to the serious stuff: in June 2020 JK Rowling published an essay on her website detailing her position [...].

The debate on puberty blockers also opens in Italy - finally!

Breaking the silence is the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, which is calling for an open scientific debate on these treatments, which it defines as 'experimental', not supported by adequate studies and at great ethical risk because they predetermine the fate of girls and boys

Much later than in the Great North of Europe, Great Britain, Australia, and some US states - which have abruptly put the brakes on the use of puberty blockers as a 'therapy' for girls and boys with gender non-conforming behaviour - Italy too is finally breaking its silence with a letter addressed to the government by the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, which calls for caution and the opening of a public scientific discussion. Below we reproduce interviews conducted by Marina Terragni for Il Foglio and [...].

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 [...].

Sweden puts the brakes on child transitions
It is precisely the countries that pioneered hormone treatment for children with dysphoria (from the Great North to Australia) that have taken a decisive step backwards, indicating psychological therapy as the first approach, and drugs only in exceptional cases. Even the British health service is calling for a radical rethink of protocols. Studies are lacking to show that the benefits of pharmacological 'treatments' outweigh the damage. But in Italy puberty blockers continue to be prescribed.
Great Britain, Australia, Texas, Iowa and other US states, and now Sweden: the pioneer countries in the transition of minors treated with puberty blockers before development, put the brakes on abruptly and point to psychological and psychiatric therapies as the first approach to dysphoria in girls and boys. In Italy, on the other hand, the use of puberty blockers does not stop, and there is a complete lack of data on the number of minors and protocols applied. The Swedish decision, anticipated by the Karolinska [...]

US: trans doctors against child transition
Hormones and surgery for dysphoric minors were also put on hold by Erica Anderson and Marci Bowers. Both trans women - Bowers is the surgeon who operated on the famous Jazz Jennings, in the photo, who now suffers from eating disorders, depression and serious post-surgery problems - express strong doubts. The boom in lawsuits also prompts caution from WPATH, the Association for Transgender Health. But the New York Times does not give space to these rumours.
Abigail Shrier's interview with two experts in the treatment of gender dysphoria, who are themselves transgender, and who have questioned the standard procedures currently used on girls and boys, has been making the rounds. They are Marci Bowers, a surgeon specialising in vaginoplasty and penis inversion, and Erica Anderson, a clinical psychologist at the University of California, San Francisco's 'Gender Clinic for Children and Adolescents'. Both were born men and did [...]

Australia: stop hormones to children without court approval?
Although the law allows the transition of minors on the basis of a simple medical assessment - as in Italy, after all - one clinic is holding back and requires the judge's consent to "treat" a girl, despite the parents' approval. This is a sign of a change of course for fear of litigation after detransitioner Keira Bell won her case against the British health system.
Fear of legal disputes over gender transition treatments for minors is growing: specialised gender clinics, which have seen their profits soar in recent years, are starting to take precautions to avoid possible future financial disruption. The alarm sounded in faraway Australia last January but has only now come to light, thanks to an anomalous dispute that has revealed a major concern on the part of professionals, despite the [...]
