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 [...]

Mayor Beppe Sala's 'gift' to Pride
From now on, in Milan, the birth certificates of children of 'homogenous couples' will be automatically registered, including those born from surrogacy. Although the law and subsequent rulings firmly condemn the practice and point the way to 'adoption' for the 'intended' parent. But the registry office is the responsibility of the State, not of local administrations. And the Milanese have never been asked about it: all the critical aspects of a unilateral and very glamorous decision that could also present profiles of unconstitutionality
'We have restarted the recognition of children born in Italy by homogenous couples': the words with which Mayor Beppe Sala announced his personal 'gift' to Pride initially caused some confusion. In fact, children born 'in Italy' on the initiative of - and not 'by' - same-sex couples are only the children of women united with other women. The children of male couples are born in Canada, California or other procreative tourism destinations, but not in Italy [...].

Right, left, human, transhuman
The issue of 'rights' -from gender identity to the uterus for rent- is not complementary or on the sidelines, but outlines the horizon towards which we move. But the post-human perspective pursued by progressives is not unique and inescapable. The alternative exists: a female-rooted civilisation
By re-submitting the Zan bill in the Senate with very little chance of it passing -when instead other solutions, such as the Scalfarotto bill, would have ensured a law against homobitransfobia- PD secretary Letta has repeatedly stressed that the issue of rights is decisive for his party. The theme of rights, however, is always placed as complementary, on the sidelines of issues considered far more relevant: the war, certainly, economic issues, but also simply the electoral law. In truth, most of the game [...].

This is Georgia
Surrogacy, gender identity, motherhood: on many issues, the positions of the leader who now looks to the premiership coincide with those of feminism, snubbed by the left. What to do in the face of this challenge? Can the women's movement dialogue with the right?
Giorgia Meloni could become the first woman prime minister in our country. She no longer hides her ambition and if she knows how to do the right things by next spring - or rather, if she does not do the wrong things - and if she manages to escape the volleys of friendly fire, no less intense and insidious than enemy fire, she will be able to achieve her goal, having only herself to thank for the mistakes of her opponents: no one has co-opted her - see here - she has no master [...].

Towards the abolition of surrogacy: an anthology and a debate
CIAMS publishes a multi-voice book against the uterus for rent and discusses it in an open webinar. In the meantime, in Italy, which is preparing to "welcome" the Fiera dell'Utero in Affitto (in Milan on 21-22 May), two bills are already being discussed that would extend the punishability of the practice even when carried out abroad. And a popular initiative bill is on the way
While in Italy we are preparing to "welcome" the Fair of the surrogate motherhood, scheduled for 21-22 May in a place still unknown - we will know only at the last minute - and in addition to the two bills already under discussion in the Commission of Justice of the Chamber of Deputies, proposals that call for the punishment of "surrogate motherhood even if carried out abroad, is preparing a draft law of popular initiative with a collection of signatures for a definitive stop to the practice - we will soon give details - next 28 April [...]

There is a war in Ukraine. Do you go to Prague to rent wombs?
Sold as 'altruistic' - but with 'reimbursement of expenses' equal to Ukrainian rates - GPA could become a new business in the Czech Republic given the tragedy in Kiev, where children are not picked up by clients frightened by the conflict. With all-inclusive packages, including cultural attractions and good restaurants. Meanwhile, in Spain, a Supreme Court ruling reiterates the severe condemnation of the practice of "reducing women and children to merchandise".
A very recent ruling by the Supreme Court in Spain states that the surrogate motherhood violates the rights of mothers and children "treated as mere commodities", reiterating the ban. The High Court affirms that this type of contract "causes damage to the best interests of the child and an exploitation of women that is unacceptable" and violates the fundamental rights recognised by the Constitution and international conventions on human rights, and therefore "is therefore manifestly contrary to our public order". Both women and [...]

Womb for rent fair in Milan: open letter to Mayor Sala
Scheduled for 21-22 May, the event will re-launch the GPA business after a slowdown due to the pandemic. But in Italy, advertising the buying and selling of children is a crime. We therefore call on the Mayor, the Council and the City Council to alert the police and to take any initiative against this blatant violation of the law.
To the Mayor of Milan Beppe Sala To the City Council We have learned that on 21-22 May Un Sogno Chiamato Bebè (A Dream Called Baby) will be held in Milan at the Spazio Antologico-East End Studios in via Mecenate 84. The fair is organised by the same promoters of the "salon", which has already been held in Paris, Cologne, Munich and Berlin, and is coming to Italy for the first time (see here and here). The aim is to relaunch a business, that of buying and selling children, a "sector" which at the moment is [...]

Ukraine: there is also the drama of 'surrogate' mothers
Ukraine is Europe's baby-making factory: thousands are born every year. Today, in order to save the 'product' and the investment, the rich commissioners demand that pregnant mothers leave the country on the brink of war, separating from their families and children. Further violence against these poor and exploited women
Ukraine is on the brink of war. The world is on tenterhooks, Europe could be facing a conflict at home, those who can leave the country but there are also those who do not want to. Like Natalia, 29, a surrogate mother who called her lawyer the other day to find out if she could be forced to leave the country by the 'intended parents', the people who ordered her child. Natalia, the name is fictional, has a husband and children, for [...]

Open letter to the Mayor of Milan and his Council: why the 'two fathers' should not be transcribed
The transcription of the birth certificates of children born from a surrogate motherhood circumvents the ban on the practice, gives precedence to a private interest - based on a commercial contract - over the public interest, and authorises the father to blatantly lie about the filiationis status - if a mother did so she would be prosecuted for forgery. Are we therefore unequal before the law in violation of Article 3 of the Constitution?
IN RESPECT OF THE RECENT JUDGMENTS OF THE COURT OF MILAN INJUDGING THE TRANSCRIPTION OF BIRTH ACTS CARRIED OUT ABROAD CONCERNING CHILDREN BORN FROM RENTAL UTERUS BY WILL OF COUPLES OF MEN TO THE MAYOR OF MILAN BEPPE SALA TO THE COUNCIL OF MILAN and p.c. TO ELENA LATTUADA, DELEGATE FOR EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES OF THE MAYOR TO ELENA LATTUADA, DELEGATE FOR EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES OF THE MAYOR WHEREAS recourse to surrogacy is a crime almost all over the world: in fact, the practice is admitted only in about twenty countries [...].

Memoirs of an egg cell donor
Ellie sold her eggs to pay for her journalism course at Columbia University: was it worth it? A live journey into the world of the human gamete trade
by Ellie Houghtaling My eyes look around. I am surrounded by four nurses holding me upside down. They shake me back and forth to send blood to my head. As I regain consciousness I ask myself: is it worth it? Question from $ 10,000. Seven months ago I was admitted to the School of Journalism at Columbia University. I was absolutely stunned to be admitted, but even more shocked by the price of $ 116,000 - and that was just for tuition. The school, considered the gold standard [...]

Luna and the 'mother' buyer who didn't want her
There was no attachment between the 'commissioning' woman and the child born from a surrogate mother. Out of "envious" rivalry towards the mother who gave birth to her. And because if you buy a child as a thing, you can always discard it. This case is just the tip of the iceberg of the complex relational dynamics that are triggered when you resort to this practice. And it is always the children who pay the highest price.
Luna, born through a surrogate mother, is a perfectly healthy child. The 'intended parents' (as the surrogate parents are usually called) usually have second thoughts when the child is born with a handicap. A few years ago there was the famous case of Gammy, suffering from Down's syndrome and a heart malformation, who was born to a Thai 'surrogate mother'. The Australian commissioners only took back the 'perfect product', a healthy twin, discarding the defective little brother. Despite financial difficulties (otherwise she would not have lent [...]

Registering 'two fathers' violates the Constitution
In particular, it violates Article 3 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights, which requires us to be equal before the law. The male couple would in fact be allowed to lie about the filiationis status of the child, something that is never allowed to a mother, who is always required to declare the truth about the paternity of her child. Otherwise, they would be penalised. Unacceptable
The Court of Milan ordered the Municipality to transcribe in full the birth certificate with "two fathers" of a child born in the United States from a rented uterus and purchased oocyte. Since spring 2019, the municipality had suspended the transcriptions of these birth certificates, limiting itself to the transcription of the biological father only. A few months later, a ruling by the Court of Cassation had supported this decision, pointing the way to adoption so-called "in special cases" for the biological father's partner. Subsequently another [...]

3 months paternity leave: but mothers and fathers are not equal
The "Family Act" measure announced by Equal Opportunities Minister Bonetti at the Women's Forum G20 Italy. But if greater male participation is desirable, the equalitarian logic that inspires sharing moves once again in the direction of the neutral, denying female difference and promoting ineffective actions
During the opening of the "Women's Forum G20 Italy" in Milan, the Minister for Equal Opportunities, Elena Bonetti, announced plans to gradually extend compulsory paternity leave from the current 10 days to 3 months, as part of the "Family Act". The extension - and in some cases equalisation - of fathers' and mothers' leave is presented as a progressive policy aimed at achieving greater "gender equality" in the family and at work, as well as [...]
