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?

L'identità di genere vista da una giovane donna

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.

No more drugs for children with gender dysphoria!
For many years a pioneer of puberty blocker and hormone-based treatments for 'gender non-conforming' minors, Finnish psychiatrist Riittakerttu Kaltiala now denounces these 'therapies' as dangerous, useless and lacking in scientific evidence. And she calls on doctors around the world to find the courage to break the silence imposed by activist censorship and the media's rubber wall
In Italy there persists an obstinate silence on pharmacological treatments for minors with gender dysphoria (puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, 'gender reassignment' surgery) according to the protocol of so-called gender affirmative therapy. It is not possible to know how many minors have been treated or are undergoing treatment, in how many and which centres they are treated and with what 'success' (or failure) rates. While throughout the Western world the debate has been open for some time and in some countries [...]

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 [...].

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 [...]

UK: out of women's hospital wards men who 'identify' as women
The woke initiative of the British Medical Association, which ordered its members to stop using the terms 'woman' and 'mother', is being answered by the Sunak government, which is reinstating the biological sex criterion and abandoning the gender identity criterion in the health service. Why we need to return to common sense
The battle rages in the UK over the physical and symbolic spaces reserved for women. The British General Medical Council, which in its guidelines ordered the deletion of the words 'woman' and 'mother', is shortly to be answered by the Sunak government's initiative to reinstate the biological sex criterion and abandon gender identity in the health service: MtF transsexuals -that is, biologically male- will no longer be housed in women's hospital wards even if they identify as women.
