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.

California, transfusion of children
The American state proposes itself as a 'health' tourism destination for minors who are unable to access transition where they live. Exempting the parents and relieving the operators of any risk of litigation in the event of subsequent 'repentance'. Meanwhile in the UK, after the closure of the Tavistock, eyes are on a Scottish clinic where the experimental model (puberty blockers and surgery) continues to be applied
There is a real war going on in the United States over the ideology of gender identity and its promotion in schools. A 'culture war' pitting the elites, who fund and promote gender ideology, against the ordinary people who oppose it (see the Disney case here). While Biden from day one has made many legislative concessions to trans activism at the federal level, the Republicans have intercepted the discontent of the citizenry with various counter-legislation at the state level, such as [...]

UK. Black week for the glittering trans-patriarchy: closed the Tavistock, gender clinic for children. And Allison Bailey wins in court: she was discriminated against for her gender critical views
The ideology of gender identity under attack in UK: NHS orders closure of paediatric transition clinic and points the way to psychological therapies. And Allison Bailey wins employment tribunal case backed by JK Rowling: employer ordered to compensate her for putting her 'under investigation' because of her gender critical views. At the suggestion of Stonewall, who comes out of it with her reputation in tatters
CLOSES TAVISTOCK, CHILDREN'S TRANSITION CLINIC: 'AFFIRMATIVE' APPROACH (DRUGS AND SURGERY) IS DANGEROUS FOR YOUNG PATIENTS The news is sensational: the British National Health Service (NHS) has ordered the closure of the Tavistock & Portman gender clinic for failing to ensure the safety of young patients, most of whom are girls (full article here). The clinic has been accused by several parties of hastily initiating many minors, most of them suffering from spectrum disorders [...].

Argentina: stop neutral language in schools
E' was the first country to introduce gender self-identification. Ten years later it is among the first to ban neutral language in schools as it is 'not even that inclusive: it creates a barrier for children with learning difficulties'
In 2012, Argentina was the first country in the world to introduce self-id or gender self-identification into its legal system. Ten years later, it is one of the first countries to ban neutral language in schools. As taught by the mothers of radical feminism and difference thinking, the neutral is a red herring that actually brings the male point of view back to the centre. If the illusion of the neutral is less noticeable in the English language, it is immediately [...]

Where is the Casa delle Donne in Rome going?
'The House we are all' reads the beautiful slogan of the historic enclave in Trastevere. But in that space, which is public and should be open, the#039;agibility is only transfeminist. And after the uncritical support for the Zan ddl -to stop feminicides-, the yes to the 'uterus for rent' and to 'sex work', now also the hymn to male ultra-bodies in women sports: maybe it is time for a reflection
The International House of Women in Rome agrees with the University of Pennsylvania's proposal to name Lia Thomas 'Woman Athlete of the Year'. Lia Thomas, of whom we have spoken several times here, is the famous swimmer who has repeatedly beaten her opponents competing in the women's categories, but who has at least had the merit of finally exploding the issue of male ultra-athletes in women's sports. The post shared by the International House of Women, a confusing little treatise on intersectional feminism, [...].

Maya Forstater, fired for saying sex cannot be changed, wins in court: it was discrimination
Decisive for gender critical feminism around the world was the victory of Maya, a researcher who lost her job over a tweet in which she wrote that biological sex is immutable and that women have rights based on sex. Britain reaffirms the right to criticise gender identity: threats and accusations of transphobia are illegitimate. "A'further proof" says Forstater "that the wind is changing". The final ruling of the labour court also ordered the company that did not renew the contract of the researcher, co-founder of Sex Matters, to pay compensation. A triumph across the board
A year ago, June 2021, Feminist Post published an article on the case of Maya Forstater, the British researcher whose employment contract was not renewed by her employer for expressing critical views on the concept of gender identity and reaffirming the importance of women's gender-based rights. The article ended by reminding readers that Maya's case was not yet over and, although the appeal ruling of the [...]

Women attacked from left and right: the ash on the head of the New York Times
As the organ of the liberals and woke culture, the great US newspaper has been undertaking a vigorous change of course for a few months now, admitting its own excesses and the misogyny of the new progressive course committed to wiping out women. While waiting for the self-critical wind to blow in Europe too
by Pamela Paul Perhaps it makes sense that women - complacent and pleasant-looking creatures, selfless and just as pretty - were the ones who finally brought our polarised country together. Because the far right and the far left have found the one thing they can agree on: women don't matter. The position of the right is best known, the movement has been aggressively dedicated for decades to depriving women of basic rights. Thanks also to two judges [...]
