One of the achievements of women in recent years is to have finally obtained that the violence against them, that which we see and are sadly told about in the daily news, that of their murder by partners, husbands, fathers and brothers, be recognised under the name of feminicide.  

Femicide is precisely the result of an all-male cultural idea, which they have convinced us of since time immemorial, that the woman is nothing but a female ( etymology: from waxes, whose only vocation is care in total self-denial. stessa

Now, however, Western democracies and the contemporary capitalist system, whose degree of development is assessed on the affirmation of more and more individual rights and which have made freedom their banner, have not been able to fail to recognise the women of the 'first' world. the status of self-determination and freedom claimed by the women's movement in the 1970s.

This, however, triggered a demands for more and more rights by all creating a curious paradox: that of the dictatorship of minorities. In the face of the growing list of rights claimed by many, what is the answer?

In the logic that each wish increases market demand and thus increases GDP.The proposal that was given to us was to cloak the most abject practices that nevertheless circulate money with a false, hypocritical narrative of love and to the detriment of the biological sex that qualifies us.

La surrogacy, sex work and the right to be what we feel internally regardless of our genderbecome for the contemporary mainstream forms and exercises of free choice and self-determination and we women should rejoice at the idea that finally the market recognises the monetary value of reproduction for our bodies, and the monetary value of sexual pleasure for women.  and rejoice in disowning our sex as an act of extreme liberation.

The self-determined and conscious surrogate mother freely renounces (no pun intended) to be the master of her body and the fruit of her womb, because by signing the contract she delegates the choices about her body to a third party, the commissioning parents, nowadays referred to as intentional parents.

The same applies to prostitution, now called Sex Work, in which a woman, in exchange for money, renounces her own pleasure and naming it because she has undertaken to recognise only that of the client.

Freedom becomes a marketable product: those who have money buy it, those who don't can sell theirs. 

In the background that makes all this possible is the itranshumanist deology. Already born in the last century, today it is pervasive in our culture, through a narrative that makes human beings neutral beings. It matters little in which bodies we are embodied, we are fluid beings in which the spare parts of the body-machine become commodities at the service of unlimited individual desires. 

A huge market opens up, that of bodies cleverly built on the narrative of more and more rights for all.  

 And in the end it always comes back to that: if women don't give it to you they are to be killed, if they give it to you too easily they are to be raped, if they don't give you a child they are bitches, if they don't sacrifice themselves to give one to a gay couple they are excluders, if they don't give it to another woman who doesn't have a womb they are selfish, if they say that trans women are trans women they are transo-phobes, if they say that selling sexual pleasure is violence they are moralists, if they have the courage to say that it is not freedom to sell one's body they are stupid.  

In simple terms: what is proposed to us as progress  puts women back in the position of being only female. We have moved from being guardians of the hearth to guardians of society's social stability. 

Liberation concerns everyone and everyone, but it is based on the erasure of women's gender. 

Having obtained differentiating the word murder from the word feminicide with the intention of highlighting the patriarchal cultural roots linked to the killing of women, it has not yet opened the door to a broader reflection on all those words such as homophobia, homotransphobia, which also include the female gender but erase its sex by not naming it.

Every year, 6 February is International Genital Mutilation Day. This abhorrent practice highlights the depths of the fear that the patriarchal system has of women and their sex.  The female sex, and by sex I mean her genital organs, when it opens up at puberty must be kept under control, it must be protocollarised, it must be directed into a precise gender, this unfortunately is the lowest common denominator that unites all traditions. On our biological sex, on our bleeding once a month, on the pleasure enclosed even in the clitoris, the oppressive system of patriarchy has been built.

If, therefore, the word 'feminicide' highlights the patriarchal root of the violence perpetrated on women, partners, mothers, sisters (men who kill females because they cannot stand that they are women) we should perhaps start working to make it a recognised word in society also  Feminophobia,  a perverse mechanism of our cultural system that erases our sex, our being female, because it cannot stand that we are women.

Belgium, new feminicide law. To be studied
In Europe, male violence is the leading cause of death for women between the ages of 16 and 44. Belgium equips itself with a new law that for the first time legally defines feminicides in order to develop policies based on official statistics. Keeping in mind that violence is a device of male domination
Stop the slaughter of women. This is the meaning of the new 'law on the prevention of and fight against feminicides, gender-based crimes and the violence that precedes them' adopted at first reading in the Council of Ministers on 25 October in Belgium. Deposed by the Secretary of State for Gender Equality, Sarah Schlitz (Ecolo/Verdi), the framework law for the first time legally defines feminicides in order to develop combat policies based on official statistics. And in [...]

The Iranians are fighting for us too
Women in Iran are oppressed, violated and killed precisely because of their bodies as women. And their revolt could free everyone and everyone. Is'the woke West of'gender identity and 'freedom of the veil' ready to understand and support this revolution that blows for us too? Woman, life, freedom
In the uncertain and ever-changing geopolitical order of our time, in the midst of a global political agenda that from right to left forgets women, betraying, albeit in different ways, female exclusivity and the richness of sexual difference, the struggle of Iranian women has something epic, something moving. The killing of Mahsa Amini shows how the issue of the 'veil as freedom' is the quintessence of intellectual dishonesty, of logical fallacy, of an age-old lie. To 22-year-old Mahsa, the desire to 'feel the [...]

Madonna mistress sadomasochism
A bare-breasted Madonna dressed as an S&M mistress paraded on the shoulders of a group of protesters during the Pride in Cremona. These are the reflections of Daniela Tuscano
Maria vulva sacra, Our Lady of Milk, is one of the oldest and most venerated icons, especially in the Middle East and Ethiopia, where Christianity took root from the first century. Even today, the Grotto of Milk in Jerusalem is the destination of incessant pilgrimages of women expecting or wishing to become mothers. Every 29 April, the Orthodox Church celebrates with a splendid hymn the breasts of Mary, the 'life-giving Spring' that lifts the sick from their beds, frees the afflicted, strengthens the frail, [...]

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 [...].

Against war, finding words
We invite you to share your thoughts on the situation in Ukraine, removing them from the battlefield of social networks. Words to help us put order back into the huge mess that is war, to find a sense that has been lost. Send us your texts
War is an absolute loss of meaning, the replacement of words with violent gestures. Keeping words alive, investing them with trust, giving birth to new ones is a very precious work that can stem the destruction. Not so much and not only the words that serve for diplomacy and negotiation. Above all, the words that help us put order back into the huge mess that is war, to find the sense that has been lost. Not the words of the flames on social networks, which force us to take [...]
