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.

UK: gender identity will no longer be discussed at school
A new crackdown by the Sunak government after the Cass report, which also warns of the risks of social transition of minors, the so-called 'alias identity' that has already been adopted by many Italian schools: in the classroom, it will no longer be taught that one can change sex and sex education will be calibrated according to age. And never without parental consent
After years and years of transactivists from associations such as Stonewall and Mermaids making the rounds with their sex education courses in English schools of all levels, Rishi Sunak's government announced today with Education Minister Gillian Keegan new mandatory guidelines for schoolchildren and students on these issues. Classrooms will no longer teach that you can change your gender identity, as has been the case until now [...]

From Gaza to western delivery rooms, Judith Butler sees fascists everywhere
Fascists, of course, we gender-critical feminists too, 'allies of the right and the Vatican'. The Californian intellectual, renouncing all philosophical subtlety, compiles a political agenda that coincides with the platform of the university students in struggle. And he calls for an alliance between trans people, antifa, the pro-Pal movement, the homeless, black people, migrants and even women - understood as one of many minorities - to build 'a radical democracy inspired by the ideals of socialism'. An account of the Bologna leg of his triumphant European tour
Perhaps today one could speak of the 'Butler Agenda': its platform coincides perfectly with the platform of struggle of the-students throughout the West, with little certainty as to whether the chicken or the egg was born first. Certainly Judith Butler is to all intents and purposes the mother of Gender Theory to which these student(s) (a minority anyway) enthusiastically adhere; in turn these student(s) with their mobilisations are a source of inspiration for Butler, their platforms are also a [...]

Not-Mother's Day
Natural motherhood is right-wing, biotech motherhood is left-wing because it is thought of as a right and not suffered as destiny: the diatribe on this issue between radical feminism and transfeminism could be summarised in this way. It's anything but new, but it has become radicalised. Not least because the context has changed so much: a baby boom is one thing, births at an all-time low is another
The other day Minister Eugenia Roccella was prevented from saying what she had to say, right or wrong, at the States General of Natality. The students who were protesting against her were allowed to express their demands - one of their delegates went on stage, and she also included Gaza in her speech, right or wrong - but this was evidently not enough because the minister was prevented from speaking anyway. Perhaps I am wrong, but if I were convinced of the [...]

Trans surgery increases suicide risk
A very recent study of 90 million patients shows that trans-operated people run a 'significantly higher risk of suicide, death, self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder' and require psychiatric support. Thus, the completion of the long and arduous transition with 'affirmative' surgery does not ensure the achievement of the hoped-for well-being
"Gender affirmation surgery is associated with a significantly higher risk of suicide, death, suicide/self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder than control groups in this real-world database. Since suicide is one of the most common causes of death among adolescents and middle-aged individuals, it is clear that we must work to prevent these unfortunate outcomes. This further reinforces the need for comprehensive psychiatric care in the years following surgery for [...]

Letter to Rishi Sunak: we need a public enquiry into the influence of transgender ideology
One hundred and thirty British MPs, doctors, psychiatrists, academics and detransitioners - among them JK Rowling - have written a letter to the Prime Minister calling on him to examine the 'pervasive influence' of transgender ideology in schools and the National Health Service and to ascertain responsibility for the harm done to thousands of girls and boys
"Rishi, if you read this petition please do the right thing and urgently initiate a public enquiry. The welfare of our children depends on it." Writing this is psychotherapist James Esses, coordinator of the Biological Reality Statement and one of the signatories to an appeal to the British Prime Minister after the major scandal of the treatment of 'confused and vulnerable' children by medical professionals, made evident by Hilary Cass's report. Among the first signatories is JK [...]

Hormone-addicted children: an in vivo trial. Who will pay for it?
Hilary Cass, the British paediatrician who produced a monumental report on 'affirmative therapy' for minors does not mince words: those children 'were used as footballs'. There has never been any evidence that puberty blockers work, that they reduce suicide risk, that they increase patients' well-being: far from it. Will those who, in the absence of scientific certainty, have inflicted these treatments, who have even persecuted so many people of goodwill determined to expose the scandal in the name of truth, go unpunished? Keira Bell, the best known detransitioner, hopes for criminal consequences
Englishwoman Keira Bell, a former patient of the Tavistock Clinic in London, is certainly the most famous of the de-transitioners. After the publication of the Cass Review she tells The Times that she would like to see criminal proceedings started so that the children treated by the clinic with puberty blockers and hormones can finally get justice. Keira is now 27, judges the treatment she was subjected to -blockers, hormones, removal of breasts- "experimental at best, destructive at worst" and believes the professionals have [...]
