As was the case last year in the Italian edition of X Factoralso the BRIT Awards 2022 - the most prestigious music award in the UK - has abolished, in tribute to the gender fluidmale and female categories. So no longer "Best Female Solo Artist" and "Best Male Solo Artist", but a gender neutral "Best Artist', the winner of which was Adele.
Upon receiving the award, he commented: "I understand why the name of this award has changed, but I love being a woman, and being a woman artist. That's how it is. I'm really proud of us. I really, really am."
For this innocuous phrase, Adele is in the eye of the storm on social media, accused of alleged 'transphobia' and branded as TERF.
In a Britain where the ideology of gender identity is already established at an institutional and social level, it is no longer possible to call oneself a woman. A woman who is simply happy and proud to be a woman 'excludes' trans people, i.e. men who would like to be women, and in the name of identification demand it.
At the BRIT Awards there was not the almost total abolition of women that we saw on the X Factor. But the attacks on Adele make us realise that the concept of trangender / gender fluid / non-binary serves first and foremost to silence women again, which are already called 'bodies with vaginas' (see The Lancet case here).
Adele can't say those things: in the name of 'inclusiveness', we women cannot be proud of belonging to our sex. And it is clear that in this debate on 'transphobia' the much vaunted 'rights of trans people' had absolutely nothing to do with it.
