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?

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 [...]

UK: growing rejection of gender self-identification (self-id)
Justice agrees with the Sunak government: the Scottish law that wanted to introduce free choice of sex is not constitutional. Meanwhile, Equal Opportunities Minister Kemi Badenoch calls the pharmacologisation of 'gender non-conforming' children 'conversion therapy'. And announces a law against self-id tourism
Rishi Sunak's central British government had imposed a constitutional veto on Scotland's gender identity law. The Scottish High Court of Justice ruled in its favour, establishing the legality of blocking the reform. The Scottish proposal, put forward by National Party MP Shona Robison, aimed to eliminate the pathological categorisation of the Gender Recognition Act (GRA), introducing the concept of gender self-determination (Self ID) and allowing the change of sex on the birth certificate even for those [...]

This History must end
War is not an invention of women. War reduces us to prey and makes us dumb things. Positioning ourselves -on this side or that side- does not give us peace. Peace is not the interval between one war and another. Peace is not helplessness but an active force that regulates relationships and settles conflicts. We demand that rebellious children recognise their mother's authority and shirk the obligation of acts of domination and overpowering
'War has always been the specific activity of the male and his model of virile behaviour'. Carla Lonzi, Manifesto of Women's Revolt, 1970 War is not our invention, nor is that desperate form of war that is terrorism. Positioning ourselves -on this side or that side- does not give us peace, it disorients and divides us, but we are not allowed any other movement than to seek refuge in an impossible extraneousness. We recognise ourselves with pain in the 'enemy'. [...]

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 [...].
