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.

Madonna mistress sadomaso

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.

Trans issue: change of wind among progressives
The 'la' is given by the American Democrats, but also in the rest of the West the trans-filia of the progressives is beginning to show signs of breaking down. Electoral opportunism, sure. But the change must be registered. Keeping our eyes wide open
Michele Serra is a friend and I appreciate very much that he has taken it upon himself to break the silence from the left -finally- on the unbearable injustice of male bodies in women's sports (L'Amaca in La Repubblica yesterday, 22 June), an injustice against which we have been fighting for a long time (here you will find an infinity of texts on this subject). A note, if possible: I would have avoided using the woke cisgender definition, imposed by transactivism, and in which the vast majority of women in the world, athletes and non-athletes alike, [...].

But women still exist
We don't like the title too much, especially that laconic 'again', but thanks to La Repubblica for hosting our intervention in the debate that started with Michela Marzano's text entitled 'Se non è il sesso a fare la donna'. We republish it here because you cannot find it on'online
Published in La Repubblica our text in the debate opened by Michela Marzano with her intervention on 'women with penises' and other wonders. We are keeping the original title that was given to our intervention so as not to cause confusion, even if we do not like it much. Here is the full text to follow. What is a woman? She is the one who brought us into the world, each and every one of us. Of this there can be no doubt. Which in no way means that [...]

Transition courses for middle schools in New Jersey
While major newspapers such as The New York Times and The Times publish increasingly concerned articles on the transition of minors -and in Italy deafening press silence- in schools in the US state, 'Ten Years of Testosterone' by Aydian Dowling, FtM influencer who propagandises the online sale of hormones, breast-crushing bands and rubber penises, is screened. Trans-spots explicitly take the place of'sex education
Almost at the same time as The New York Times, The Times also devotes two long articles to the child transition scandal (they could have woken up before thousands of little girls and boys were ruined with drugs and hormones, but instead they kept quiet until the very end). Headlines What went wrong at the Tavistock Clinic for trans teenagers? and My puberty was chemically delayed: I was their guinea pig. We are also waiting for the Italian media to wake up, from Corriere della Sera to La [...].

Mothers should not be left alone
While waiting for the details of the terrible figlicide in Mascalucia to be defined, one thing applies to all: motherhood cannot be experienced in solitude. In the absence of that 'village' that serves to raise every creature that comes into the world, places for new mothers to meet and freely share experiences and experiences are needed. To maximise joy and give course to feminine and maternal wisdom, the foundation of civilisation
The picture of the Mascalucia child murder is still not entirely clear: whether the crime was premeditated (the last embrace between mother and daughter on the way out of the kindergarten was heartbreaking), whether the girl was of sound mind, whether she acted alone, and so on. The investigators will do their work, the court will establish responsibility and punishment, although no punishment can be greater than the one the mother inflicted on herself with her terrible act. But one [...]

A letter to the editor of Repubblica. To explain to him what a woman is
Reactions from readers - and also readers - to Michela Marzano's unacceptable text according to which anyone is entitled to call herself a woman, and if a woman has something to object to, she is a TERF are multiplying. Here is Alessia Teani's open letter to Maurizio Molinari
Dear Director Maurizio Molinari, I take the liberty of writing to you directly because you have dared to call me a TERF from the pages of your newspaper. You said it to me, to my mother, to my good grandmothers. You have called my granddaughters, my pupils, my friends TERF. You, Mr. Molinari, are calling TERF to all the women who, upon entering the women's locker room, do not expect to see a naked man, with all the arrogance that your well-meaning [...]

The hypocrisy of Michela Marzano
Picking up on the surreal debate agitating the British Labour Party (who is a woman?) Marzano casually addresses the misogynistic Terf insult to gender critical feminism, even though many in the media have long since banished it. And she ideologically pleads the cause of 'women with penises', without mentioning the problems for real women
Michela Marzano takes up in La Repubblica the debate going on in the British Labour Party -and in the entire Western liberal left: by now there is only that- on the surreal issue of "who a woman?", in the face of which even the patriarch Sigmund Freud, who drew most of his science and language from women -the hysterics-, had shown himself to be more just and respectful. The question agitating Labour concerns so-called trans women, that is, people born men who have [...]
