Women and the left: a toxic love

Betrayed, abused, humiliated. And finally supplanted by self-identified neo-women who are far more attractive and functional than the 'old' women by birth. Yet many among us cannot break away from the progressives who show in every way that they do not consider them. The same dynamics of a sick relationship

All loves are born and die, and when they end there is always the one who suffers the most, sometimes only one side, the one who loved sincerely, the other maybe not, maybe he was lying. E we women on the left really believed in love, wholeheartedly: naively we thought we were the darlings, we believed the promises, even those that blatantly appeared false. Carla Lonzi already reminded us half a century ago that the left had sold us 'to the hypothetical Revolution', and even overseas, Feminists were raising the issue of 'Dual Militancy'. E everywhere, the Left, born within a male paradigm of thought, has behaved like the worst narcissistic male: lies, abandonments and returns, threats, beatings and caresses, betrayals.

 On a collective level we experienced the same toxic relationship that so many of us have experienced in our individual lives with their men: but when a blunder is shared it is harder to see, we convince ourselves among ourselves that outside of that embrace that wears us down there can be nothing, indeed there is a nothingness that troubles and frightens us, and we alone cannot venture into that forest which, as all fairy tales teach us, is a place of risk and challenge, but also of personal growth.

When the crumbs came to us we all partied, then it wasn't true that we didn't count for anything, we weren't the old throw-away slippers.

But at some point you have to open your eyesespecially when the adultery is so big and so blatant that it is no longer possible to pretend nothing is wrong and to show meek smiles: and with whom did this ultimate betrayal take place? Precisely with whom we raised and nurtured, tenderly, motherly: when the left was hopelessly macho (Lidia Menapace warned us here too) it was we who supported and welcomed the homosexual movement first and then the transsexual movement. Those males appeared fragile, sorrowful, reassuring, sexually non-threatening, sincere friends and convinced allies in the battles against the hated patriarchy. And even those who demanded to live serenely with a feminine name and a suffered and reconstructed body, what harm did they do to us, what threats could they present to us?

Well, in that very world there, where we felt at home, safe, protected and relaxed, a strange, colourful but aggressive, militaristic (though not grey-green) movement was born, and many of our old comrades have turned against us. So many of those male accomplices of our confidences and battles against the hated patriarchy have changed front, the male alliance on the left has become a pact of steel in the name of common ideals told as progressiveBut behind this ideal plan broods an ancestral broth of animosity, envy, millenary resentments, unexpressed desires towards our sexed bodies and our capacity to give Life. The males have made a blockade among themselves against us, something they have known how to do brilliantly for millennia, and have literally pulled the earth from under our feet.

Brilliant, have even created neo-women: the traditional ones, that is us, are outdated: everyone is a woman, everyone can be a woman, problem solved. Something doesn't add up, what about us?

Obviously Those of us still painfully in love with this left wing betrayal do not want to see it, they can't, they are blind and deaf, and maybe they become accomplices in this surreal sham to deny reality, waving as a bogeyman and as the only alternative to this toxic love that keeps us bound and wears us down the black world of a right-wing that frankly doesn't scare anyone anymore. As in, a symbolic husband we have to have, a male ideology to refer to, to which we attach ourselves for life and to which we devote our best energies.

E if instead we tried to be on our own? To take our children, our things, our world and 'spiral away', as Mary Daly used to say? Is it so bad among the rest of us? Loose of bonds, free, breathing?

Slavoj Žižek: puberty blockers are woke capitalism
The Marxist philosopher speaks of wokeness, the progressive cult of awareness and awakening, giving an evocative psychoanalytic reading of it. And warns that despite appearing under attack today we will have to deal with it for a long time to come
In an evocative article published by Compact, entitled Wokeness is here to stay -which we translate and partially reproduce here- the Marxist philosopher Slavoj Žižek tackles the subject of wokeness, the movement of 'awakening', analysing its critical aspects but also underlining the reasons why we will have to deal with it for a long time to come. Some argue that 'wokeness' is in decline. In reality it is gradually being normalised and conformed even by those who inwardly doubt it, and is practised by most academic institutions, [...].

Transsexuality is not a lunch for genderqueers
Being transgender is not transgenderism but a deeply dramatic experience with an uncertain outcome. Which has nothing to do with the stale stereotypes with which gender identity is expressed. Neviana Calzolari's reflections
Republished courtesy of Dol's Magazine. Original article here Neviana Calzolari, sociologist, activist, writer and TV face. Yet hardly mainstream, indeed among the most acute (and critical) observers of the social-political landscape of our times (...) The I-Dee group of Milan and the Ipazia association of Catania met her. - The Zan bill was designed to combat homotranssphobia, therefore with good intentions,' Neviana began, 'despite this I remain sceptical about certain terminology, in particular 'gender identity', which alarms much of the world [...].

Femicide and Feminicide
According to a narrow interpretation, the number of these crimes would be decreasing because not all murders of women would fall under this heading. A false and dangerous reading of the data that deserves careful vigilance
The term femicide was first introduced by criminologist Diana H. Russel to define those situations in which a woman's death is the outcome/consequence of misogynistic attitudes or practices. Mexican anthropologist and politician Marcela Lagarde, conversely, introduces the term femicide to describe 'the extreme form of gender-based violence against women, produced by the violation of their human rights in public and private spheres through various misogynistic conducts such as mistreatment, physical, psychological, sexual, educational, [...]

PD primaries: transfeminist Elly Schlein wins
The young leader launches her OPA and wins it. By making the Democratic Party a woke formation, in line with western progressivism: di-rightism, free gender identity, uterus for rent, sex work. A challenge reminiscent of what is happening in Spain where radical feminism has divorced the Left
To begin with, congratulations to Elly Schlein and best wishes for her new post. Then the facts, as I see them. Elly Schlein's victory was a takeover of the PD: the vote in the gazebo, for the first time different from the one in the circles - also a historical novelty - shows that Schlein has mobilised the radical left to the limits of antagonism, as well as the 5 stars. She said it years ago: Occupy PD. Now she has done it. That she is supported by a major part [...].

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 [...].

Femelliste, a gender critical 'sister' platform is born in France
Harassed, insulted, mocked, threatened: French feminists have collected and catalogued the attacks transactivists have suffered for years. And they have set up an information and training site against the dictatorship of transgender ideology
The name of the site is a play on words that cannot be translated into Italian. The site's creators inform that it has already been used by animal feminists such as Posie Parker, Nicole Roelens and the Boucherie Abolition collective. It would make one think of anti-specism, it is actually more and in some respects a little different. 'Femelle' in French means the female animal (for the human one, the same word as woman, femme, is used). Since they fight for sexual rights [...]
