In 2017, as the movement #MeToo exploded all over the western world, the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave spontaneously and without notice the green light to transfer of male prisoners calling themselves women in federal women's prisons in Canada.

Inmates in Canadian prisons are at risk of violence by male prisoners who identify themselves as women, but nobody is willing to discuss the issue for fear of being labelled transphobic..

The #MeToo movement revealed to the world that women are too often subjected to criminal acts of sexual aggression in the workplace, but the range of complaints is much wider - women are routinely subjected to small violations of human dignity, daily humiliations that society more or less condones. These humiliations are emotionally devastating.. They are losing a sense of dignity and the own value in their own eyes. We can deprive ourselves of many things, but not of our dignity as human beings.

Heather Mason, who served her sentence in the Canadian prison system, stated that she had experienced first-hand the dangers that result from putting men in women's prisons. Canada allows the men to choose to serve their sentence in a women's prison if they claim to identify themselves as women - regardless of whether they have undergoing or not undergoing surgery or therapy hormonal.

Here is his interview with RT News

RT News "Inmates of intimidation".

"Nobody wants to speak about it. They don't want to report on it. We're being told that we're lying, that it's not happening, that we have bigoted views, that we're transphobic."

"Nobody wants to talk about it. They don't want to denounce the situation. They tell us that we are lying, that it is not happening, that we have bigoted views, that we are transphobic."

Canada: allarme sulle violenze maschili nei carceri femminili
Women's rights activist Heather Mason

Following Trudeau's decision, the imprisoned women are now in every way victimized of the men detained with themas permitted by Correctional Services Canada (CSC). If they complain, they are subject to official punishment. There are six federal prisons for womenwhich house around 800 inmates. Currently there are a total of 10 - 15 male prisoners scattered in these facilities.

The following are letters smuggled out of prisons and disseminated by people who care about women's rights. The names and places of the authors of the letters cannot be disclosed.

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 [...]

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 [...]

Saman: 'their culture' as a mitigating factor
The girl's marriage was 'arranged and not forced' and in the judgement 'the culture of the offender must also be taken into account': the reasons for the sentence (signed by female judges) for the brutal murder of the young Pakistani girl leave one bewildered. As well as the mother's self-sexism that would be the material executor of the crime. At this rate, according to Unicef projections, girls will continue to be sold to men for at least the next 300 years
Pictured is a poster with Saman's face composed of photos of many women victims of male violence. The story of Saman Abbas is an open wound. Killed by her family three years ago, her concealed body found more than a year after her death. At the beginning of this year, the funeral, with great public participation. A few days ago came the grounds for the verdict in the first-instance trial of Saman's family last December: life imprisonment to [...].

A few words to Mr Gennarone (he doesn't deserve any more)
The essence of fascism is to prevent anyone from speaking out. Whoever calls a woman ****** intends to intimidate, devalue and above all silence her. Ergo: a sexist cannot call himself an anti-fascist because sexism is incompatible with antifascism.
A few words to rapper Gennarone, author of fine lyrics (e.g. 'Stile foggiano, la mia terra la amo, dall'appennino dauno alle terre del Gargano. Take my hand ready for the journey through the land we live in') who during the 1 May concert in Foggia among many other things said that 'Italy is living in the shadow of fascism thanks to that ***** of Giorgia Meloni'. Just to remind him that: a) the essence of all fascism and totalitarianism is to prevent anyone from [...].

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 [...]

Gender is a battlefield
Joe Biden in the midst of campaigning replaces the word sex with gender identity. Germany and Sweden pass new trans laws allowing self-identification (self-id): German parents will be able to decide what sex their newborn child is regardless of whether it has a penis or a vagina. Meanwhile after England also Scotland bans puberty blockers for 'non-compliant' minors. And in Spain, one year after Ley Trans came into force, 'sex changes' have increased by 400 per cent. Even some 30 bearded soldiers have declared themselves women. The lobby pushes furiously and the chaos is unspeakable
While also in Scotland, after England, 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers followed by hormones and surgery) will no longer be prescribed to minors, a decision taken following the publication of the sensational Cass Review, in the United States President Biden - or rather, his firmly Obamian administration - in the midst of the presidential election campaign in November has effectively abolished Title IX of the Education Amendments in force since 1972. The amendment mandated that no one on the basis of sex could be excluded from [...]
