No more hormones for children: the next battle

Also in Italy the transitions of minors are increasing. If the Zan bill were to become law, the practice would be normalised. But it is gender stereotypes that must be demolished, not the bodies of girls and boys.

If the Zan bill becomes law the introduction of the concept of gender identity in criminal law would involve some almost immediate consequences: by requesting self-id or self-certification of gender -the proposal of the MIT (Movement for Trans Identity) is ready. the normalisation of the practice of surrogacy -Here, too, a law has already been drafted to introduce so-called 'solidarity' surrogacy, which will facilitate explicitly commercial surrogacy.

Then there is the question ofHormonisation of girls and boys to start them off on the transition., practice that has already been running in our country for at least 3 yearswhich does not require any court intervention and which is all carried out in a medical setting in various public facilities in Italy. Here in the Feminist Post you will find a lot of material on the transition of minor on detransitioning.

If the Zan bill becomes law, the use of puberty blockers would be definitively normalised. as is the case wherever self-id is in force. But even if the bill does not pass, 'gender variance' diagnosesThis is how dysphoria is euphemised, and it would certainly continue to increase. The intervention in language is decisive in this process of deconstruction and derealisation of biological sex: already today we no longer talk about female or male births, but about "sex assigned at birth"as if attribution necessarily entailed a percentage of error even if the genitals were perfectly conformed, as in almost all cases (we are not talking about intersexuality).

In the judgement at the end of the case brought and won in the UK by the detransitioner Keira Bell, who had accused the British health system of initiating her transition after a couple of hasty visits, the Court highlighted the fact that the UK's health system had not been able to cope with the transition. lack of reliable data on children's transitions as well as the approximation of diagnoseswith a considerable percentage of depressed children, with eating disorders or autistic spectrum disorders treated as dysphoric.

Several recent studies have also found that the effects of puberty blockers - in particular on bone density and possibly fertility - which until a few months ago were guaranteed to be reversible, are definitive.. In other words, it was claimed that if the child stopped taking drugs, development would resume normally. This is not the case.

Yesterday's news reported by La Stampa according to which in the last 3 yearssince Aifa has used the use of the wording of the off label of triptorelin as a puberty blocker after a favourable opinion from the government's Bioethics Commission, in the city of Turin alone - Molinette and Regina Margherita hospitals - the number of diagnosed cases of dysphoria among minors rose from one to 37. The report does not specify whether these minors were all started on hormone treatment. The curve is gradually approaching that of the UK and the Nordic countries: The Economist reported a 30-fold growth in 10 years.

In Italy, this has long been the case in the UK, data on the number of children diagnosed as dysphoric and the number of hormone treatments started are not known. It is known that even here today it is mostly girls who are destined to be in 8-9 cases out of 10 to switch from blocker to final transition with cross hormones-sex-in the case of girls, testosterone and double mastectomy- once they reach the age of 16.

This will be our next battle, all the more so if the Zan bill becomes law. A necessary battle even if the law is not passed.. Children's transitions are in fact a already an established reality in our country -today in the UK you need a court ruling while in Sweden and Finland, pioneer countries in these treatments, as well as in Arkansas, blockers are no longer administered.-.

It is necessary to disclose data, applied protocols, levels of risk disclosure -or rather the content of the informed consent, to know how many and which Italian public structures diagnose and treat these children. Doctors working in this field, psychologists, psychiatrists, endocrinologists, surgeons, and more rarely paediatricians, should be consulted.

We want girls and boys to be able to grow up and define their existence according to their own inclinations and talents, free from gender stereotypes. We want a world in which this is finally possible. It is the stereotypes that must be demolished, not the healthy bodies of girls and boys. No girl, no boy is born in the wrong body.

Bodies that don't count: Judith Butler returns to the fray
In a crowded lecture at the London School of Economics, the Californian philosopher and pioneer of gender theory reiterated the cornerstones of her thinking: the materiality of sex does not exist, women do not have the exclusive right to be women and must open up to other subjects starting with Queers and pro-Palestinians, transfeminism is anti-capitalist and anti-fa for a common fight against "fascist passions". And it attacks gender-critical feminism "allied with the Right".
At one point, it seemed that Judith Butler had changed her ways. The Californian philosopher, one of the most influential of the last thirty years, a theorist of gender performativity, who had arrived along a radical constructivist path to the negation of the material consistency of gendered bodies to the point of problematising and/or dismantling the subject 'woman' itself, had acknowledged: "My definition gave rise to two contrasting interpretations: for one, everyone chooses their own gender; for the second, we are all women. had recognised: 'my definition gave rise to two conflicting interpretations: for the first, everyone chooses their own gender; for the second, we are all completely determined by gender norms [...].

A new AGEDO?
The historic Parents of Homosexuals Association has worked extensively for the acceptance and non-discrimination of gays and lesbians and today dedicates many of its initiatives to children with gender dysphoria. With an essentially affirmative approach, that is, supportive of transition. In a recent webinar it was said perhaps one should break off relations with family members who object and that reasoning about the effects of puberty blockers is off topic. To mention just a few of the more surprising statements
AGEDO (Associazione Genitori Di Omosessuali - Association of Parents of Homosexuals) was an important organisation set up in 1993 on the initiative of Paola Dall'Orto, founder and president until 2007 and awarded the title of Cavaliere al merito della Repubblica in 2009 for her work: 'The aim,' she explained, 'was to help those parents who found themselves in the same situation as us: in a state of discomfort, often despair, and almost always ignorant about the subject [...] We thought we could help these parents to know what they were not [...].

The 'milk' of men
The English National Health Service ensures that the milk produced by a male body -stimulated with ad hoc drug therapy- is as good for the newborn as that of its mother, who is wiped out. Minimising the risks to the child's health largely offset by the ideological and symbolic benefits. It is the transhuman, my beauties!
Men's 'milk' is a perfect example of what we call transhuman. Women's milk, on the other hand, is human, all too human, it is the perfect model of the enduring human, and therefore natural breastfeeding should be degraded, mocked, stigmatised as something to be ashamed of and kept hidden. In fact, it is even a useless and unethical act. On the contrary, promoting and magnifying male 'breastfeeding' shows plastically the way forward. According to the prestigious journal Pediatrics, organ of the American Academy of Pediatrics, it is 'risky' to define [...]

How to convince progressives to give up gender
Terrified of transactivists and worried about sounding 'right-wing', left-wingers support the transition of minors even in the absence of studies showing that 'affirmative therapy' works and promotes the well-being of gender non-conforming girls and boys. "But everyone has a right to evidence-based medicine," argue some liberals determined to "break the spell". And they start DIAG -Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender- to convince democrats in the US and around the world that continuing on this path is wrong and dangerous. For children and for the left. An article by Bernard Lane
A new movement of US Democrats wants to find out how to break the spell of gender ideology and bring the party back to the liberal values of science and reason. Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender (DIAG) launched a project yesterday on X Space (Twitter) to commission research on how to more effectively reach out to left-wing voters who believe that science is now in favour of 'gender-affirming' medicalisation of gender non-conforming youth. "The only way to end this [...]

New York Times: Strong doubts about hormones for children with gender dysphoria
The world's leading woke newspaper has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, starting with the indecent treatment of JK Rowling. Today the paper changes course and in a very long article criticises the 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers, hormones and surgery) for trans minors, giving a voice to some hitherto censored and ostracised detransitioners. Because by now even many Democratic voters have strong doubts. And there is a risk of losing many readers: "get woke, go broke".
For years, the New York Times has been the world's leading woke newspaper and has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, jubilating critical voices. The treatment of JK Rowling is exemplary. In 2022 a very violent subscription campaign invited people to imagine Harry Potter without its creator: the ultimate in cancel culture (see here) A misogynistic and aggressive gesture - the initiative turned out to be a boomerang and many female subscribers threatened to cancel -. A few months ago The Daily published [...].

Men IntintA and other wonders
The health of 'Marco', a trans FtM who is five months pregnant with testosterone, and that of her baby are the least of the problems. What matters to the liberal press talking about an 'anthropological revolution' is whether 'Marco' is to be called mother or father. But only a woman can give birth even if at the registry office her name is male. In this nothing has changed since the dawn of time. In the meantime, the trans front is losing ground: in one year, the number of members of WPATH, the largest transgender health organisation, has fallen by 60 per cent.
La Repubblica online headlines with a triple somersault about the 'young man who got pregnant': pregnant is not dared even at the transphilic GEDI group. The story is that of 'Marco', a girl undergoing testosterone therapy to look more like a man: beard, graver voice -not to 'become male' because sex cannot be changed and every single cell will remain damned XX-. 'Marco' had retained his uterus and ovaries and following a hetero sexual relationship (a [...]
