Gender identity as seen by a young woman

Following the publication of an official communiqué on Facebook by 'feminists' and Alessandro Zan's re-launch in view of the debate on his bill in the Chamber today, 27 October, I felt it was my duty to make a few things clear out of respect for all women who, like us, do not feel part of this 'feminism'.

I decided to answer this point by point communiqué which once again does not fail to misinform.

L'identità di genere vista da una giovane donna

I strongly believe that the women who signed this communiqué do not have a clear understanding of the concept of "gender identity'. developed and spread over the last few years in youth culture and which has little to do with protection for homosexuals and transsexuals.

The genre is a social construct that is applied to women and men according to their gender and is not something innate, which is why it does not exist as an identity but is more of an 'alter-ego' that, as a trend, is taking hold among young people who do not want to be part of and do not recognise themselves in the sexist stereotypes.

A law to protect homosexuals and transsexuals, which in this case would be an addition to an already existing law, the Mancino law, would therefore recognise as a crime an offence against a homosexual or transsexual person for reasons of intolerance and hatred. This offence could be verbal or physical, or discrimination at work or in social life.

The ideology based on 'gender identity' actually states that any person can assume the essence of another person that she is not herself. In other words, I could feel like a gay man and ask to be considered as such. In other words, I could pretend to be what I am not, and in the worst cases, we could see, for example, men perceiving and identifying themselves as women or girls and asking to be included in spaces and services created especially for them, most of the time for safety against male attacks. It would be nice if these were isolated cases, but unfortunately there are more and more of them both in Canadawhere murderers of women and children and rapists are placed in women's prisons and also in Spain where more recently ex-Jonathan, who had already shown over the years an obsession with Vanessa, his cousin, killed her and was then placed in a women's prison after 'self-identifying' as Lorena.

This ideology, as well as offering today's young people an ploy towards combating sexist stereotypes, serves as a sshortcut to escape from society, a society that we radical feminists want to change.

For this reason, 'gender identity' is a 'new' concept.homophobic ideology, in that it denies the existence of same-sex attracted people by claiming that being a man or a woman is a feeling, a perception; and misogynist, as it considers any being in line with female stereotypes to be a woman.

It goes without saying that a woman who does not correspond to the stereotype of femininity, instead of being accepted as a woman who expresses herself according to her own preferences, is inclined to consider herself as selfish. "transgender'. i.e. not in line with what the 'female gender' asks her to be.

This is why we ask: how can the petitioners consider gender identity the pillar for a law protecting homosexuals and transsexuals?

It is not clear how those who do not recognise themselves in the rigid models of our society would feel mortified if this law were changed.

Feminists are the first to have questioned society as an oppressive system towards women. The first ones who do not recognise themselves in the models imposed, and precisely for this reason we do not want it to be consolidated in any way in a law.

The term "gender'. has been used for a long time to define violence that the system implements on women, domestic, economic, sexual, trafficking, prostitution, emotional violence. It was decided to name it "gender-based violence'. instead of violence against women.

It is not possible to give so many different meanings to a term that already has a meaning and that represents the fruit of centuries of feminist strugglestoday the word 'gender' is a nightmare for women, a "handicap', reminds us every day that we are the different from the standard: 'the masculine'. It reminds us that laws had to be created to try to protect us from 'gender' violence -that is, male violence- because education is not enough to keep us safe from men.

Making the concept of 'gender identity' valid represents a real cultural appropriation which imposes the new meaning of identity as the consolidation of a trend, a fashion, a fetishism which for women is yet another abuse.

It really seems hypocritical mention of the "power play when the Zan law process had all the trappings of this from the start. From the outset this law was considered 'wrong' because of a text of the law consisting of confusing articles and definitions without a scientific basis and conceptual coherence.

The power game and the tug-of-war has been put in place by the law itself when it claims to intervene in the education of young people, even children, and in the imposition of "a way of perceiving life and self-perception". to everyone, in schools, in the media and in society.

The power play was put in place by the first petitioner Alessandro Zan the moment it started to involve famous people and influential among young people to launch a real persuasion campaign through omission of information and misinformation.

This ideology makes its way into the lives of people who often do not know what it is about, but find themselves obliged to choose whether to support it and are therefore "inclusive'.or to refuse it even if only to understand better what it is about and end up directly in the abyss with the label of "transphobic-a" or even homophobic-a.

The only power play they are making is these leftists that instead of considering the criticism of feminists in Italy and open up their views by also looking abroad to consider the consequences of these disastrous lawsare embracing a capitalist neoliberalism which actually has the following objectives: to address the Lgbtq centre economic resources much greater than those intended for women and women's centres, to be considered open and active in solving real problems, which will not be solved by such a law.

Change should be promoted by actions on the ground, education in schools starting with the sexual one, but not by sacrificing it to a 'gender' approach, awareness-raising campaigns.

We exist, we are the majority and we are not the Fake News.

It is true and we say it out loud: FEMINISTS DO NOT WANT THE ZAN LAW.

It is not a question of 'mutilating' it, but to construct laws in a careful and considered waynot as if it were a football match with fans doing the big voice and monopolising the information of an entire country.

L'identità di genere vista da una giovane donna

But in no democracy can one be forced to "vote for the law as it stands".".

Those who criticise this law do so in order to investigate, inform themselves, read the text - something that not even the 10% of those who support it may have done, and who knows if they will have understood it - and observe the consequences that similar laws have had in other countries. Above all, however, those who oppose the law have clearly understood that the law has now become totally disconnected from what it was intended to be: an amendment to an existing law to discourage discriminatory acts against homosexual and transgender people, who, let us remember, are always seen as the victims of discrimination. male attackers.

If women do not want to continue with this law, it is not because they do not share the goal of stopping violence and discrimination against homosexual and transgender people. Far from it.

We want change in a society that requires us to "identifying with labels calls "genres', we believe in supporting and accompanying people who are not comfortable with their bodies, but we will never support the conversion therapy that this ideology, using LGBT collectives and equal opportunities ministries around the world as a sounding board, is advancing, paradoxically supporting female or male roles that are actually based on sexist, conservative and patriarchal concepts.

Are you sure you are supporting women, 'feminists'?

Are you sure you are protecting lesbian women and gay men?

Probably being able to see beyond your nose, to look beyond the Mediterranean could give you a greater awareness of the landscape.

I am, and we are, always open to discussion... as long as you deign to listen to women, before or after men.

The 'milk' of men
The English National Health Service ensures that the milk produced by a male body -stimulated with ad hoc drug therapy- is as good for the newborn as that of its mother, who is wiped out. Minimising the risks to the child's health largely offset by the ideological and symbolic benefits. It is the transhuman, my beauties!
Men's 'milk' is a perfect example of what we call transhuman. Women's milk, on the other hand, is human, all too human, it is the perfect model of the enduring human, and therefore natural breastfeeding should be degraded, mocked, stigmatised as something to be ashamed of and kept hidden. In fact, it is even a useless and unethical act. On the contrary, promoting and magnifying male 'breastfeeding' shows plastically the way forward. According to the prestigious journal Pediatrics, organ of the American Academy of Pediatrics, it is 'risky' to define [...]

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 [...]

New York Times: Strong doubts about hormones for children with gender dysphoria
The world's leading woke newspaper has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, starting with the indecent treatment of JK Rowling. Today the paper changes course and in a very long article criticises the 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers, hormones and surgery) for trans minors, giving a voice to some hitherto censored and ostracised detransitioners. Because by now even many Democratic voters have strong doubts. And there is a risk of losing many readers: "get woke, go broke".
For years, the New York Times has been the world's leading woke newspaper and has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, jubilating critical voices. The treatment of JK Rowling is exemplary. In 2022 a very violent subscription campaign invited people to imagine Harry Potter without its creator: the ultimate in cancel culture (see here) A misogynistic and aggressive gesture - the initiative turned out to be a boomerang and many female subscribers threatened to cancel -. A few months ago The Daily published [...].

Men IntintA and other wonders
The health of 'Marco', a trans FtM who is five months pregnant with testosterone, and that of her baby are the least of the problems. What matters to the liberal press talking about an 'anthropological revolution' is whether 'Marco' is to be called mother or father. But only a woman can give birth even if at the registry office her name is male. In this nothing has changed since the dawn of time. In the meantime, the trans front is losing ground: in one year, the number of members of WPATH, the largest transgender health organisation, has fallen by 60 per cent.
La Repubblica online headlines with a triple somersault about the 'young man who got pregnant': pregnant is not dared even at the transphilic GEDI group. The story is that of 'Marco', a girl undergoing testosterone therapy to look more like a man: beard, graver voice -not to 'become male' because sex cannot be changed and every single cell will remain damned XX-. 'Marco' had retained his uterus and ovaries and following a hetero sexual relationship (a [...]

New Hampshire: No more 'sex change' surgery on minors
The US state has passed a bill banning surgeons from performing operations on under-18 year olds such as the removal of ovaries and breasts for females and penises and testicles for males. The bill states that these operations violate the patient's 'informed consent' and points out that studies have not shown a decrease in the suicide risk of minors after the operations. On the contrary: the danger increases
New Hampshire is preparing to ban under-18s from undergoing sex-change operations. Last Thursday, the New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a bill to this effect, also with the help of some Democratic members. House Bill 619 prohibits doctors from performing 'any genital gender reassignment surgery', i.e. the removal of the uterus, ovaries and breasts in the case of women; testicles and penis for men, to anyone in the [...]

Puberty should perhaps be stopped at ALL: Transhuman drift of the World Health Organisation
In a veritable Christmas blitz, the WHO announces that it wants to draw up new gender-affirming guidelines and sets up a panel made up of three-quarters transactivists in favour of medicalising children. Preferably all of them, even those who do not suffer from dysphoria. Because choosing what sex you are must become a universal right. An international petition calls for a halt to the initiative
A few days before Christmas, the World Health Organisation (WHO) announced that it will develop new guidelines on the 'health of trans and gender diverse people', with a focus on access to hormones and surgery (what it calls 'gender-inclusive care.) ') and legal recognition of gender self-identification (self id). The WHO also announced that it has formed a group to develop the guidelines. This expert group includes many World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) apparatchiks, including [...]
