How to convince progressives to give up gender

Terrified of transactivists and worried about sounding 'right-wing', left-wingers support the transition of minors even in the absence of studies showing that 'affirmative therapy' works and promotes the well-being of gender non-conforming girls and boys. "But everyone has a right to evidence-based medicine," argue some liberals determined to "break the spell". And they start DIAG -Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender- to convince democrats in the US and around the world that continuing on this path is wrong and dangerous. For children and for the left. An article by Bernard Lane

A new movement of US Democrats wants to find out how to break the spell of gender ideology and bring the party back to the liberal values of science and reason. Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender (DIAG) launched a project yesterday on X Space (Twitter) to commission research on how to more effectively reach out to left-wing voters who believe that science is now in favour of 'gender-affirming' medicalisation of gender non-conforming youth. "The only way to end this [...]

New York Times: Strong doubts about hormones for children with gender dysphoria

The world's leading woke newspaper has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, starting with the indecent treatment of JK Rowling. Today the paper changes course and in a very long article criticises the 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers, hormones and surgery) for trans minors, giving a voice to some hitherto censored and ostracised detransitioners. Because by now even many Democratic voters have strong doubts. And there is a risk of losing many readers: "get woke, go broke".

For years, the New York Times has been the world's leading woke newspaper and has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, jubilating critical voices. The treatment of JK Rowling is exemplary. In 2022 a very violent subscription campaign invited people to imagine Harry Potter without its creator: the ultimate in cancel culture (see here) A misogynistic and aggressive gesture - the initiative turned out to be a boomerang and many female subscribers threatened to cancel -. A few months ago The Daily published [...].

Men IntintA and other wonders

The health of 'Marco', a trans FtM who is five months pregnant with testosterone, and that of her baby are the least of the problems. What matters to the liberal press talking about an 'anthropological revolution' is whether 'Marco' is to be called mother or father. But only a woman can give birth even if at the registry office her name is male. In this nothing has changed since the dawn of time. In the meantime, the trans front is losing ground: in one year, the number of members of WPATH, the largest transgender health organisation, has fallen by 60 per cent.

La Repubblica online headlines with a triple somersault about the 'young man who got pregnant': pregnant is not dared even at the transphilic GEDI group. The story is that of 'Marco', a girl undergoing testosterone therapy to look more like a man: beard, graver voice -not to 'become male' because sex cannot be changed and every single cell will remain damned XX-. 'Marco' had retained his uterus and ovaries and following a hetero sexual relationship (a [...]

Child rapists: shock report in UK

In Great Britain, 18 rapes a day are committed by minors on their peers: in 2022 these cases numbered 15,000, almost always by very young males. A British police report shows how free access to violent pornography online is normalising criminal sexual behaviour in England and all other Western countries

For years, we have been reporting on the psychological and material damage produced on an entire generation by free access to violent online pornography, consumed by boys and girls from the age of 7 but also much earlier: gang rapes committed by minors are just the tip of the iceberg of this dramatic phenomenon, which has now been analysed and quantified by a study by the British police. On this topic you can find previous articles here, here, here and here. We were almost only [...]

New Hampshire: No more 'sex change' surgery on minors

The US state has passed a bill banning surgeons from performing operations on under-18 year olds such as the removal of ovaries and breasts for females and penises and testicles for males. The bill states that these operations violate the patient's 'informed consent' and points out that studies have not shown a decrease in the suicide risk of minors after the operations. On the contrary: the danger increases

New Hampshire is preparing to ban under-18s from undergoing sex-change operations. Last Thursday, the New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a bill to this effect, also with the help of some Democratic members. House Bill 619 prohibits doctors from performing 'any genital gender reassignment surgery', i.e. the removal of the uterus, ovaries and breasts in the case of women; testicles and penis for men, to anyone in the [...]

Puberty should perhaps be stopped at ALL: Transhuman drift of the World Health Organisation

In a veritable Christmas blitz, the WHO announces that it wants to draw up new gender-affirming guidelines and sets up a panel made up of three-quarters transactivists in favour of medicalising children. Preferably all of them, even those who do not suffer from dysphoria. Because choosing what sex you are must become a universal right. An international petition calls for a halt to the initiative

A few days before Christmas, the World Health Organisation (WHO) announced that it will develop new guidelines on the 'health of trans and gender diverse people', with a focus on access to hormones and surgery (what it calls 'gender-inclusive care.) ') and legal recognition of gender self-identification (self id). The WHO also announced that it has formed a group to develop the guidelines. This expert group includes many World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) apparatchiks, including [...]

Germany also considers a stop to hormones for girls with 'gender dysphoria'

As one of the most permissive laws on the transition of minors is about to be passed, a Bundestag document puts the brakes on and urges caution. Because there is insufficient scientific evidence that affirmative drug therapy increases the well-being of adolescents and that its effects are reversible. A serious and in-depth debate is needed, which has so far been prevented by transaggressive activism and the pressure of the LGBT+ lobby on politics and the media.

After years of resistance and battle by radical feminism around the world - as well as by self-organised parents resisting transpropaganda, such as the association GenerAzione D - the issue of minors undergoing transition with puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and surgery has finally come to the attention of the Italian Parliament. For some time now, the issue has been the subject of a bitter critical debate that has spread from Sweden and the UK to the entire Great North, as far as Australia, New Zealand and the United States [...].

UK: new guidelines for 'trans children' at school

No 'social' transition for primary school children. Careful assessment in other grades to ensure there is no 'social' influence. Parental involvement in every decision. Gender-segregated toilets. And an end to the Lgbtqai+ propaganda that for years almost exclusively ran affective and sex education classes. Look to the turnaround in the UK not to make the same mistakes

For years in the UK sex education in schools has meant Lgbtqai+ propaganda run by organisations such as Stonewall and Mermaids. The epidemic of transitions among minors, often facilitated by schools, convinced the Sunak government to intervene to regulate the issue with new guidelines. Today, when affective and sexual education in schools is also being discussed in Italy - moreover one of the main points of the Zan fu-ddl - looking at the English experience can be very useful to avoid making the same mistakes.

Born of a surrogate mother
Olivia Maurel, 32, was born to a surrogate mother and today she is fighting on the front line against the practice, which she describes as 'atrocious' and 'monstrous'. She always knew something was wrong with her family. She suffers from depression, has had problems with alcoholism and has attempted suicide several times. Only recently has she discovered the truth about her origins and that she suffered the trauma of abandonment. "To no child," she says, "should what happened to me ever happen again."
Commercial or 'altruistic' surrogacy must be abolished. These are the words of Olivia Maurel, born in December 1991 in Kentucky by traditional surrogacy (i.e. in which the oocyte also belongs to the 'surrogate mother', ed.), who recounted her experience in a conference at the parliament of the Czech Republic. Today, married with two children in Cannes, 'proud to be a feminist' as we read on her X page, she fights against surrogacy. Her testimony, very valuable as there are still very few [...]

13 November in The Hague against surrogacy
The Private International Law Conference is pushing for transnational recognition of gestation per se contracts with the intention of forcing national legislation to benefit biomarket profits. The Icams coalition against GPA organised a demonstration in defence of women's dignity and against the market in girls and children
The International Coalition to Abolish Surrogacy (ICASM) organised an international demonstration in front of the Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCCH) on 13 November to oppose the regulation of cross-border 'surrogacy'. Indeed, attempts are being made to impose international regulation of so-called 'surrogacy': as of 13 November, the HCCH will set up a working group with the task of drafting a convention to allow cross-border recognition of contracts. This is to meet the growing demand in the biomarket [...]

AUDI TO BE OPENED TO MALES: EMILIA REGION GRANTS (!) AN EXTENSION
At the urgent request of PPOO Minister Eugenia Roccella, the deadline set for the UDI to adapt its statute to allow men to join as well slips by 180 days. In the meantime, the powerful Schlienian Igor Taruffi, transfeminist councillor for Welfare and head of organisation of the national PD, will have to explain which passage of the circular on the reform of the Third Sector justifies his attack on female separatism
At the insistent request of PPOO Minister Eugenia Roccella, the Emilia Romagna region has granted an extension of 180 days to the UDI associations of Modena, Ferrara and Ravenna to adapt their statutes to allow men to register (we have told you about this here), statutes that UDI Bologna has in fact already modified for some time (2020) The deadline for modifying its statutes, under penalty of being expelled from the register of Third Sector Associations (RUNTS), has therefore been extended from [...].

The new PD proposal on surrogate children is wrong: here's why
The idea is a facilitated 'rewarding' path -only four months- for the adoption of children born by gestation for others: a quasi-automatism that instead of counteracting it would encourage recourse to the practice. Moreover, a difference is made between this type of adoptee -GPA clients- and all others for whom the timing would not change. But the Constitution wants us equal before the law
The PD has deposited in the Senate -first signatory the cathodem Alfredo Bazoli, deputy vice-president of the PD group- a bill that provides for a 'special adoption' so-called 'affective' for the children of hetero or homo couples born from uterus for rent. Basically, it accepts the procedure of adoption in special cases of those born by Gpa for the 'intentional' parent, but calls for it to be accelerated to arrive at a ruling within four months. The court, therefore, the text reads, "shall verify whether the [...]

Greece, womb and baby trafficking: babies 'kidnapped', couples stuck waiting
Team from the Mediterranean Fertility Institute in Crete arrested on suspicion of human and gamete trafficking, fraud and forgery. Many dozens of poor women from Eastern Europe persuaded to allow themselves to be exploited in order to supply children to mostly Australian principals
The Mediterranean Fertility Institute, a surrogacy clinic in Crete, was raided by the police on suspicion of human trafficking and fraud, and the entire medical team was arrested and taken to prison on charges of child trafficking. According to Greek police, a group of traffickers had co-opted 160 poor women -Ukrainian, Romanian, Moldavian, Albanian and Georgian- convincing them to provide egg cells and lend themselves as wombs for rent for a few tens of euros per month, housing them in [...]

Lesbian motherhood: open letter to Kathleen Stock
The gender critical philosopher says she is concerned about the rights of lesbian mothers being denied 'by the Meloni government'. But it was the judiciary and not the government that decided that only biological mothers can appear on birth certificates. In order for the law to recognise sexual difference in procreation, it is necessary for homosexual women to break the front with wealthy gay males who resort to surrogacy: homogeny is just ideology
We have been following closely and sisterly the story of Kathleen Stock, gender critical philosopher, author among others of Material Girls: Why Reality Matters for Feminism (Little, Brown Book Group, 2021) and former lecturer at the University of Sussex persecuted by transactivists: we have told her story here. Together with Martina Navratilova and Julie Bindel Stock she recently founded The Lesbian Project with the aim of reaffirming the specificity of lesbian identity. The aim of the project is 'to stop the disappearance of lesbians in the rainbow soup and to give [...]

The 'right' to have a slave: Hagar and the womb for rent
For days, the supporters of the GPA have been jubilantly spreading the 'news': even God allows a woman to bear children for others, as the biblical account of Sarah -wife of Abraham unable to conceive- and her servant Hagar who lent her womb shows. So today, too, temporary slaves are being claimed: a real ethical and political short-circuit. And an autogoal. Also because the Genesis account should be read in its entirety
For days on social media, the supporters of the womb for rent, in particular many LGBT+ activists and their supporters, have been reviving the story of the slave girl Hagar and her son Ishmael (Genesis 16 and 21) to support the lawfulness and goodness of their cause. The meaning would be: even God allows a woman to bear a child for others. So: nothing wrong with our claim. In fact, we too are entitled to have female slaves. A logical, political and ethical short-circuit. They do not know [...]

Only happiness
The uterus for rent universal offence is a quasi-law, approved by a large majority in the Chamber. With rare exceptions, the Left voted against (the absence of Schlein and Conte in the Chamber was clamorous). Final approval in the Senate is expected by the end of the year. Finally the result, after so many years of bare-knuckle fighting. Hoping that Italy can become a model for the legislation of other countries in the defence of fundamental human rights
We could give you a summary of the many and very long previous episodes. We could list the threats, the insults, the deplatforming, the doors slammed in our faces, all the times we were mocked, ridiculed and pilloried, the international blacklists that marked us as absolute enemies, as homophobic, retrograde, residual, out of history, reactionary, bigoted, witches, Terf. We could tell you how the huge business of assisted reproduction has opposed us. We could tell you about how the left, women and men, opposed us [...]

On the risks of the ROPA method
The technique used by an increasing number of lesbian couples consists of using the oocyte of one to make an embryo that will then be inserted into the womb of the other who will carry the pregnancy. This practice is physically and psychologically dangerous both for the two women and for the child that will be born. This is why
In our recent communiqué Per il vero bene dei bambini (For the true good of the children) we expressed our concern about the increasing use by female couples of the ROPA technique (Recepción de ovocitos de la pareja), i.e. the transfer of the fertilised oocyte of one into the womb of the other who will carry out the gestation. For this stance we have received acclaim, some insults and many requests for information and sources. What does the ROPA method consist of and what are its risks? For the [...]

For the true good of children
Demanding the full transcription of birth certificates for those born from surrogacy and other assisted fertilisation practices, rejecting the path of adoption by 'intended' parent (stepchild) indicated by the Court of Cassation and validated in these hours by the European Court of Human Rights, harms minors in the first instance. And deprives them of those rights they claim to want to defend: our communiqué
We of the Network for the Inviolability of the Female Body, RadFem Italia and FINAARGIT ((International Feminist Network Against All Artificial Reproduction, Gender Ideology and Transhumanism) with the support of all the associations worldwide that oppose so-called gestation for others, from Ciams to Stop Surrogacy Now, and eminent international feminist personalities such as Sylviane Agacinski, Gena Corea, Phyllis Chesler and Jennifer Lahl - We reiterate our condemnation of the practice and renew our hope that the 'universal offence' of surrogacy, currently in [...]

YES TO THE ITALIAN LAW ON THE UTERUS FOR RENT AS A UNIVERSAL CRIME: THE APPEAL OF ALL THE WORLD'S LEADING ABOLITIONIST NETWORKS
CIAMS, STOP SURROGACY NOW, FINRRAGE, LA JAPAN COALITION and other associations. And together with them such eminent figures of international feminism as SYLVIANE AGACINSKI, GENA COREA and PHYLLIS CHESLER. Who together with us are asking the Italian parliamentarians to approve the law that will pass the Chamber of Deputies on 19 June.
Rete per l'Inviolabilità del Corpo Femminile (Network for the Inviolability of the Female Body), Radfem Italia, and FINAARGIT (International Feminist Network Against Artificial Reproduction, Gender Ideology and Transhumanism) have always shared the goal of the universal abolition of the surrogate motherhood. Together we support the bill on surrogacy that will be debated in the Chamber of Deputies next 19 June, which extends the punishability of the practice even if it is carried out in a foreign country and which is a decisive step forward in the direction of universal abolition, offering -if approved- a model for other legislations [...].

Baby Fair in Milan: something to hide?
A strict and detailed code of conduct imposed on those attending Wish for a Baby, an assisted reproduction exhibition. Strictly personal badges, a ban on filming and handing out flyers, the threat of expulsion, even appropriate clothing, bag searches and scanners. And uniformed or plainclothes policemen to keep watch. Why so much caution? Isn't this just an information event on the various techniques? Perhaps there will also be talk of surrogacy, the propaganda of which is a crime in Italy? Or are they just trying to frighten off those who intend to be there to peacefully protest against the reproduction market?
Those who have registered for the Wish for a Baby fair scheduled to take place on 20-21 May in Milan have received in the last few hours this strict and detailed code of conduct that they will have to strictly adhere to if they want to be admitted to the event. But if it is, as the website explains, a 'celebration of new life', meeting 'the best fertility experts from around the world', 'attending seminars' and obtaining information, why all these [...]
