The real world in reverse

There is no straight world -tradition- versus a crooked world -trans-progressivism-. The two opposing worlds perpetuate patriarchy in different ways but with the same goal: to maintain domination over women. A millennial distortion: male usurpation of women's physical and metaphysical spaces

The political and social debate sees the supporters of two world modelsa metaphysical and philosophical clash rather than a strictly political one. A controversy that as women we observe with perplexity: two opposing and apparently irreconcilable models, tradition versus modernity, ancient and sacred values versus ubiquitous fluidity, the old versus the queer family.... Champions of the patriarchal world on both sides that speak the language of the ideologies of the 'short century'.

They all claim to be on the side of women- reduced to spoils of war-, interested in their problems, speaking on their behalf, treating them as an oppressed minority when in fact they constitute more than half of humanity,

But this world has not suddenly gone 'upside down', and in any case not because of the feminist 'witchdoctors': the world has been travelling backwards for five or six millenniabased on a original distortion on which it thrived.

The original sin of the Patriarchate can be represented by thetraditional image of the Tao, symmetrical and complementary Yin and Yang intertwining and interpenetrating. To those who argue that the world is not binary, one can reply that At a certain point in history that balance between male and female broke down, men have usurped territories by taking physical and metaphysical spaces from women. The natural love that males should feel for women, from whose bodies they have come into the world, has turned into envy and resentment for their natural ability to give life, the principle of female divinity. Envy and resentment expressed in the domination of women, in theinvention of creative fathers in spirit; in building civilisations based on force and possession. This has resulted in a crooked, lopsided world, which has been built precisely on an original imbalance and the unhappiness of women. A boundless bulimia that can be depicted as a male slowly and progressively devouring and cannibalising his counterpart, to the point of erasure.

Today's patriarchs - at least in the West - have disposed of their beards and cassocks, are clean-shaven, even made-up and depilated, steal women's clothes, sports, reserved spaces, and use violence against those who resist.

The contrast between the two worldviews appears increasingly sharp, but women have no friends on either side. Right or wrong, this world has been thought out, planned, organised by men to suit themselves. A world in which women can no longer even call themselves women, because other subjects (with a male sexual body) ask to appoint themselves as such; in which the female body, denuded, pornified and overexposed in media and advertising, paradoxically must disappear and cannot be named. A body desired and feared by an increasingly restless and problematic male, son of a patriarchy that is now multifaceted and multifocal, ancient and modern, atheist and devout;

The upside-down world is one in which girls flee from the feminine 'like from a house on fire' by mutilating it and destroying its physical characteristics.

The upside-down world is one in which women hate their bodies so much that they destroy them in every way, more or less consciously.

The world in reverse is a world that still fears the blood of fertile women, blood of life and not of dying bodies.

The world to the contrary is a world that says it loves women but in reality makes them the object of a millenary hatred, it envies the sexual and generative body, wants to replace them on a physical and metaphysical level and thanks to new technologies will soon succeed.

The world in reverse is a world that imagined Self-creating males, rapists and deceivers of women, mortal and divine.

The world to the contrary is one in which the 'traditional family' has only recently freed itself from legal burdens whereby the man was the head of the household; a family that at best supported itself and thrived on the sacrifice and selflessness of women and girls towards husbands and brothers who instead were able to study, work and have careers because the women at home had given them up.

The world to the contrary is one in which this family model reinterprets archaic traditions in a post-modern key, with the support of the media and a self-styled modern and progressive civil society.

The world in reverse is a world where Eros, the most beautiful and profound form of encounter between a man and a woman, loses its etymological meaning of 'love' and turns into a battlefield and a butcher's shop.

The world in reverse is a world in which a woman must be afraid that the men she meets may hurt her because they are unable to handle the desire they feel for her.

The upside-down world is one in which different worlds meet, but the constant, regardless of differences, is always the hatred and humiliation of women.

The world in reverse is a world that claims to be modern and inclusive but reduces the woman's body to a commodity-vehicle to sell other commodities.

The world in reverse is a world in which women struggle to have control over their reproductive capacity; on their bodies pitched battles between remnants of 20th century ideologies and new fundamentalisms.

The world in reverse is a world in which maternal power is incompatible with the laws of the marketand therefore left behind and penalised in its biological functions.

The world in reverse is a world in which one is forced to adhere to unrealistic stereotypes of perfection to which one reacts by stopping taking care of oneself and waging war on one's image.

The world in reverse is a world that has made even beauty toxic and dangerous.

The world in reverse is a world that has made us difficult and painful motherhood, the true natural family.

The world to the contrary is a world in which motherhood, with all its material and symbolic bearing, is relegated to subordinate status, cancelled and put up for sale like any other product.

The world in reverse is a world in which science invests time and resources to allow males who self-identify as women to use an artificial womb.

The world to the contrary is a world in which a woman who has dedicated her life to her family, who has completely taken on the work of caring, without holidays or interruptions, is not entitled to a social pension but is in the position of being 'maintained' by her husband.

The world in reverse is a world in which children do not bear the surname of the one who bore themfed and delivered.

The world in reverse is a world in which a mother who protects her sons and daughters from an abusive father is treated as a liar and manipulator on the basis of rambling theories created by men; it is judged in court on the basis of laws created by men and designed to favour them (e.g. the monstrous Law 54/2006).

The world in reverse is a world in which maternity and paternity are equated, and if a child wants to stay with mommy because daddy is mean to him, he is taken away by the police and 'reset' by professionals paid to do so.

The world in reverse is a world in which women who report violence are not believed or are abandoned to their fate, because violence has to be 'proven' and women are on average 'not very credible'.

The world in reverse is a world that some time ago discovered itself to be 'equal but in which men are 'a little more equal' than women.

The world in reverse is a world in which even feminist battles have been invaded and usurped by men who decide their goals and strategiesalways and only to male advantage.

The world in reverse is a world in which men steal everything from us: life, the imaginary, the symbolic, money, protected spaces, even sports, devouring us.

The upside-down world is a world that thinks it is straight and is not, and that sees the faults in another world symmetrically crooked and unjust. Two worlds, two paradigms each of which does not see its own errors but projects them onto the other. But a world that goes backwards is a crooked world destined to come to an end: a world that makes war on 'its half' - primarily its own mother - is a profoundly stupid world, it should be clear to everyone by now. A beautiful world where men are always devising new strategies to keep women on the sidelines and replace them. A desert they call civilisation.

Israel 7 October: Appeal for recognition as mass feminicide
The women victims of the Hamas attack were not killed like all other civilians: they were exposed naked, raped, brutalised, humiliated, decapitated, their bodies burnt and torn to pieces. "We wanted to dirty them," say the terrorists. The violence against these women meets the definition of mass feminicide: from France a petition to international NGOs

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'. [...]

Only women? Can no longer be
In 10 days' time -on 21 October- the UDI Emilia Romagna could be deleted from the Third Sector register unless it agrees to register men as well. This is how the left attacks women's political spaces - starting with the historical association linked to the Resistance - in the name of the trans-feminist 'inclusiveness' promoted by the PD. A huge risk for all feminism. They cannot win
Women's spaces under attack. Not only the physical ones - changing rooms, sports, shelter homes, hospital wards, prisons - but also the symbolic and political ones. If you don't admit men, close down and disappear. Incredible and exemplary is what is happening to UDI, Unione Donne in Italia, an association that has been active for almost 80 years historically linked to the left. Many of the UDIs in Emilia-Romagna are at risk of imminent cancellation from RUNTS, the single national register of the Third Sector, simply for the fact [...]

Spain: inmate pregnant with trans cellmate
The man -intact male body and no hormone therapy- had asked and obtained to be moved to the women's prison in Alicante because he 'self-perceived' to be a woman (self-id). A cellmate's pregnancy was the result. And the new Ley Trans, in force since December 2022, will make such transfers easier and more frequent
In the Alicante Cumplimiento Penitentiary Centre, known as Fontcalent Prison, an inmate identifying himself as a woman impregnated a cellmate. According to the account confirmed by several prison sources, the inmate had been serving a sentence in the male module of the prison for several years, but during his stay he started to identify himself as a woman. On his papers he continues to appear as a man and has never undergone hormone treatment, let alone surgery. [...]

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 [...]

USA, UK, France: Laws to prevent minors from accessing online porn
They are called Age Verification Laws and serve to bar girls' and boys' entry to porn sites to preserve the free development of their sexuality deeply disturbed by those misogynistic and violent models. The last to approve was Virginia after Louisiana, Arkansas, Utah, Mississippi. And a dozen other American states are gearing up. It is also being discussed in Europe, starting with France, which has a regulation in the home straight. So in the UK where the law would be in force from 2024. It is time to talk about it in Italy too
Terrible is the story of those almost-children who, during a New Year's Eve party organised with spirits, drugs and condoms in a villa in the Florentine area, abused two of their contemporaries - both 12 years old - filming the abuse as is now customary and sharing the videos via chat. Accidentally discovered by the mother of one of them, who did not hesitate to denounce the affair to the Postal Police, the affair would see nine of the seventeen boys who attended the party under investigation. The consumption [...]
