Maria vulva sacra, Our Lady of Milkis one of the oldest and most revered iconsespecially in Middle East and in the Ethiopian area, where Christianity took root as early as the first century. Even today, the Milk Grotto in Jerusalem is a destination for incessant pilgrimages of women expecting or wishing to become mothers.

Every 29 April, the Orthodox Church celebrates the breasts of Mary, 'life-giving Spring' with a beautiful hymn who lifts the sick from their beds, frees the afflicted, strengthens the frail, restores the thirsty, restores sight to the blind and health to the sick. The authors fuse in this song the Magnificat and the Gospel of Matthew, indicating that salvation - not only in spiritual terms, but in terms of human and social justice - is realised thanks to Mary's 'yes'.which 'gushes forth from its source ever living streams'.

Also in the West the 'female' Madonna (pregnant, puerpera, even in the act of reading the sacred text while Joseph lovingly cares for the Child) was a recurring imagethink of Piero della Francesca's Madonna del Parto.

Maria in short has, or has had, a body - unique, total and all-embracing - but it has never been reduced to itlet alone dismembered parts of it. Without his consent re-creation would not have taken place. He recalls this in two striking pages Luisa Muraro (The soul of the body, La Scuola 2016): Mary is certainly not equivalent to a womb for rent! It would be enough to know the aforementioned Magnificat, one of the most 'revolutionary' canticles of the Bible, to realise that There is nothing passive in Mary. Teresa Forcades he adds: 'Mary is a truly free woman.  She was able to relate to God from a position of equality. When God asks her if she wants to have a child by Him, her first reaction is one of astonishment... God tells her: 'I am not God because I make the rules, because I tell you what you must and what is right to do, because I am the adult; but simply because I am life itself. You and I can only interact if we wish, if you wish'... God does not impose himself on you by force. God asks, Maria agrees and gets pregnant because they love each other' (We are all different! For a queer theology, Castelvecchi 2016). It is the same reason why, over the centuries, many authors have seen in the eroticism of the Song of Songs an allegory of God's love for humanity.

Of course, there is also a Sexualising and spiritualising Mariology. Generations of Unmarried males in sacred vestments turned the young 'irregular' Jewess into the emblem of reaction and misogyny. But Scripture grows with humanity; and, especially thanks to the intellectual contribution of so many theologians and mystics, Mary has long since been restored to her dignity as a woman. A 'recent' phenomenon? Not really. For Hildegard of Bingen, philosopher, mystic, musician, doctor of the Church (12th century), who compared the universe to a great feminine force and saw in orgasm the memory of the sweetness of earthly Paradise, Mary was the 'blazing dawn'.; and we are forced to gloss over Teresa of Avila, Juliana of Norwich, Bridget of Sweden and others, of East and West...

The body of Mary has therefore, whether alluded to or explicitly, spanned the millennia, not yet fully realised, it is certain, but equally alive and concrete. His physicality therefore no longer scandalises anyone; at least in theory. Why, then, did the Madonna stripped and in chains at certain 'secular' and 'libertarian' demonstrations also disgust so many non-believers, progressives, women and men?

For nudity? No. That 'naked' Madonna is not a 'funny mystery'.

It is onlytrivially, unbearably, a vulgar, synthetic mannequin. It conveys a sick - or malign - sterility. It is glabrous and bloodless. The breasts are small and spoiled, obviously nothing flows from them. That curvaceous 'Madonna', so much like a coked-up model, is not, will never be a mother. And the mothera certain type of mother - the only - unquestionably female, free of asterisks and schwa, according to some vulgate, is not 'glamorous'.

Sex, in this view, is only to be declined if it is excessive, extravagant, non-binary, non-cis etc. Put simply: 'make it weird'. We are aware that such gimmicks have as their first purpose to make people talk about themselvesgood or bad does not matter, especially when one has no valid argument to put forward; Nevertheless, they convey a message that is not insignificant. The identification of sex with pornography, more and more exaggerated (because, being repetitive, it soon tires); and, ultimately, as a drug.

In a landscape where there is no rule but only the exception, indeed, the exception becomes the rule itself, everything can, indeed must, be accepted; Christianity - and theto Madonna as female mother-virgin wife - is to be rejected and/or mocked as an emblem of the hated 'white western heteronormative sexophobic' society etc. And, mind you: only Christianity. Other religions, no (also because one would run a few too many risks...). We have witnessed 'burqa queens' in rainbow sauce, and these were not parodies but demonstrations of 'solidarity' with the 'traditions' of 'minorities' harassed by the usual evil white cisgender Christians and so on. All the while, in different parts of the world, men and especially women/children suffered persecution, torture and murder for their faith. Because yes, in some quarters, it is only Christians who defend the most marginalised, weak, Dalit, disabled people otherwise doomed to annihilation.

For Pakistani Asia Bibi, who was imprisoned for ten years on a false accusation of blasphemy after being tortured, beaten, raped and finally forced to flee, not a breath was taken; it was not felt for the girls Huma Younus, Aleeza Naeem, Mahnoor Ashraf and myriads of others kidnapped, forcibly converted and forced to marry 40-year-olds (and more); not a word in defence of Deborah Samuel, Nigerian, 19 years old, killed and burnt because of the infamous 'blasphemy'; all women, just women. And, shamefully, hardly any news of the Pentecost massacre in Owo, still in Nigeria. Again, most of the victims were women and children.

Not white. Not western. Whether they were queer or not we ignore, someone might have been. Or not. We do know, however, that they had their throats slit like kids.

But to the gauche-caviar these victims do not seem exotic enough. So they go back to being 'black' whatever, who cares.

Much better are the S&M Madonnas. A little bit of junk and Frank Zappa's in your face.

Giorgia's father
Stigmatised also from the left is Rula Jebreal's vulgar attack that places the blame for an unreliable and absent father on Meloni. Absence that may rather offer a key to her political rise to control of a male party. And also her focus on motherhood
In her vulgar attack, stigmatised by the right and the left, Rula Jebreal claims -on the basis of a Spanish press scoop- that 'Meloni's father is a notorious drug trafficker/convicted criminal who has served time in a prison' when she 'states that asylum seekers are criminals who want to replace whites' (again for the record, Meloni has announced that she will sue Jebreal for attributing this statement to her). The right-wing leader has never made any secret of her abandonment [...]

Feminism and the Right
In response to Julie Bindel, who considers the wall erected by the transactivist left but also the risks of an alliance with the right: in Italy, the historical novelty -a right-wing woman premier, Giorgia Meloni- further complicates the picture. What to do then? What is happening in Spain over the horrible Ley Trans perhaps points to a good way forward for everyone
Julie Bindel and Harvey Jeni take the bull by the horns: given that for too long there has been no possibility of dialogue with the left, can radical and gender-critical feminism look to the right without taking risks? This is a theme that we in Italy are well aware of and that agitated the entire election campaign that ended with the landslide victory of a right-wing woman, Giorgia Meloni, who has never declared herself a feminist. The fact that today the right in Italy is [...]

SPAIN: SOCIALISTS AGAINST THE TRANS LEY
Unlike their Italian counterparts from the PD and the left who stand for free gender identity, the Spanish progressives break with the PSOE's transactivist policies in defence of women and children. In their manifesto the excellent arguments against what, if passed, could be the worst transactivist law in the world
Breaking with its party, the PSOE, and sending a signal to the women of the European left, who are generally aligned in defence of transactivist diktatism, the Federación de Mujeres Progresistas launches a courageous manifesto against the Trans Law wanted by the governing majority in Spain (PSOE and Podemos) and being approved by an emergency procedure, without an effective parliamentary debate or a wide public discussion. The initiative also comes in response to the clamorous break between historical Spanish feminism -united in the Contraborrado cartel- [...].

Perhaps gender identity does not exist
If it is the biologist Anna Fausto-Sterling, the first to speak about it in the 1990s, the inspiration of Judith Butler and the founder of gender theory, who is in doubt, then perhaps we are at a clamorous and definitive turning point. Stop trans laws before it is too late!
If Judith Butler is The Queen of Gender, Anna Fausto-Sterling is its goddess: zoologist, biologist and lecturer in gender studies -now at Brown University- starting from the rare genetic condition of intersexuality in the early 1990s, she was the first to attack the concept of sexual binaryity, arguing that sexuality is a spectrum and that at least five sexes can be identified ('come on, it wasn't a theory, I was being ironic, it was just a provocation' she later said. But in vain). [...]

Trans-Europe: Ireland, UK, Spain, gender laws high on political agendas
While the new British Prime Minister Liz Truss works to block gender self-certification in Scotland, the Iberian government prevents the parliamentary debate on the Ley Trans, which allows sex change even for 12 year olds, to go for approval in a hurry: that is why Spanish feminists break with the left and open dialogue with the Popular Party. Meanwhile in Ireland a professor is arrested for refusing to use fluid language
A teacher at an Irish Christian school, Enoch Burke, was suspended and then arrested for refusing to name a transgender student with a neuter pronoun. Meanwhile, new British PM Liz Truss is reportedly trying to block Scotland's plans to allow self-identification for transgender (self-id) people and has asked lawyers for advice on how to 'pause or prevent' the reforms. Truss, head of the equalities brief as well as a former foreign minister, was instrumental in ruling out [...]

Italian Society of Paediatrics: stopping puberty in dysphoric children does not cause permanent problems. But several studies prove otherwise
UK, Sweden, Finland, USA: much of the world is up in arms against puberty blockers that can irreversibly damage the health of girls and boys. The Tavistock clinic in London is closing down, a thousand families are preparing for a class action in defence of their daughters and sons who have not been properly treated, many American paediatricians are attacking their trade association which is pushing for the administration of these drugs. But for the Italian paediatricians' society these problems do not exist
According to the Italian Society of Paediatrics, the effects of puberty blockers used to treat girls and boys with gender dysphoria are perfectly REVERSIBLE: this means that if the girl/boy changes her mind about her intention to 'change sex' and suspends the 'therapy', her development will resume normally, without any definitive effects and/or health problems. This is not the case at all. The effects of puberty blocker therapy are by no means 'completely reversible', as has been demonstrated by several [...]
