France: Don't you support your child's transition? We take him away

The law just approved "against conversion therapies" provides for the loss of parental authority for those who resist the "new gender identity" of daughters and sons. And up to three years in prison and heavy penalties for specialists who attempt a psychological approach, not supporting the minor's immediate transition. The transactivist ideology that erases with medicalisation the natural sexual uncertainties that accompany childhood and adolescence wins.

In France, parents who question the 'transition' and gender identity of their minor children may lose their parental authority.

La new law -orwellianly called "against conversion therapies"- envisages tthree years' imprisonment and a fine of 45,000 euro for professionals who do not obey the wishes of children. Families who object could lose their parental authority.. In fact, a Trojan horse law to insert the ideology of gender identity in the legal system.

The case Robert Hoogland, Canadian father who paid with 6 months in prison and a heavy penalty for resisting the transition of his 13-year-old daughter, could also set an example in Europe.

In the text of the law proposed by the Lrem, Emmanuel Macron's party, and unanimously approved by Parliament, conversion therapies are defined as "repeated practices, behaviours or proposals aimed at changing or repressing a person's sexual orientation or gender identity, true or allegedand which have the effect of altering physical or mental health'.

In fact, it is precisely the medical and surgical 'therapy' for 'gender reassignment', administered to girls and boys who may change their minds in a while and simply turn out to be lesbians and gays, that constitutes the most important factor in the process. a real conversion therapy to 'correct' homosexuality.

The professionals who will be found guilty of practising "conversion therapy" are punishable by up to two years' imprisonment and a fine of 30,000 eurosPunishment can increase to up to three years in prison and fines of 45,000 euro for 'attempts' involving minors or other particularly vulnerable persons.

By including gender identity in the text, he protested l'Observatoire la petite sirène -group that brings together doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists and child psychoanalysts - 'we will no longer be able to deal with children suffering from gender dysphoria'. In addition, explains lawyer Olivia Sarton, in the law 'there is no distinction between minors and adults and the problems of the two categories of persons are not the same'.

Doctorswith this new regulatory framework, will be completely unprotected and will no longer be able to refuse to carry out a transition requested by the child or parentsnor will they be able to carry out psychological counselling to assess whether the operation is appropriate for the specific case, not even at the patient's own request.

The law raises concerns mainly because providesif a parent wants to prevent the 'gender transition' of their daughter or son, "total or partial withdrawal of parental authority". According to MP Xavier Breton, one of the results of the law "will be to dividing families to leave the child or adolescent alone to deal with his or her own problems".

The health sector also states that "there is a risk of locking young people into an identity that was perhaps no more than an expression of their difficulties, which are also very common in adolescence".. According to the psychologist and psychoanalyst Céline Masson a neutral approach, to 'accommodate children, allowing them to reach maturity before intervening medically'.

The commodification of children's bodies behind discourses on 'gender self-determination'. had already been denounced by French intellectuals and professionals with an appeal in L'Express (see here).

The text of the French law follows the directives of gender identity activistswhich, with a tried and tested strategy, have already led to the approval of similar laws in several countries around the world.including Canada, Brazil, Ecuador, Malta, Albania and Germany.

SPAIN: SOCIALISTS AGAINST THE TRANS LEY
Unlike their Italian counterparts from the PD and the left who stand for free gender identity, the Spanish progressives break with the PSOE's transactivist policies in defence of women and children. In their manifesto the excellent arguments against what, if passed, could be the worst transactivist law in the world
Breaking with its party, the PSOE, and sending a signal to the women of the European left, who are generally aligned in defence of transactivist diktatism, the Federación de Mujeres Progresistas launches a courageous manifesto against the Trans Law wanted by the governing majority in Spain (PSOE and Podemos) and being approved by an emergency procedure, without an effective parliamentary debate or a wide public discussion. The initiative also comes in response to the clamorous break between historical Spanish feminism -united in the Contraborrado cartel- [...].

Perhaps gender identity does not exist
If it is the biologist Anna Fausto-Sterling, the first to speak about it in the 1990s, the inspiration of Judith Butler and the founder of gender theory, who is in doubt, then perhaps we are at a clamorous and definitive turning point. Stop trans laws before it is too late!
If Judith Butler is The Queen of Gender, Anna Fausto-Sterling is its goddess: zoologist, biologist and lecturer in gender studies -now at Brown University- starting from the rare genetic condition of intersexuality in the early 1990s, she was the first to attack the concept of sexual binaryity, arguing that sexuality is a spectrum and that at least five sexes can be identified ('come on, it wasn't a theory, I was being ironic, it was just a provocation' she later said. But in vain). [...]

Trans-Europe: Ireland, UK, Spain, gender laws high on political agendas
While the new British Prime Minister Liz Truss works to block gender self-certification in Scotland, the Iberian government prevents the parliamentary debate on the Ley Trans, which allows sex change even for 12 year olds, to go for approval in a hurry: that is why Spanish feminists break with the left and open dialogue with the Popular Party. Meanwhile in Ireland a professor is arrested for refusing to use fluid language
A teacher at an Irish Christian school, Enoch Burke, was suspended and then arrested for refusing to name a transgender student with a neuter pronoun. Meanwhile, new British PM Liz Truss is reportedly trying to block Scotland's plans to allow self-identification for transgender (self-id) people and has asked lawyers for advice on how to 'pause or prevent' the reforms. Truss, head of the equalities brief as well as a former foreign minister, was instrumental in ruling out [...]

Elizabeth, the last matriarch
The missing queen wielded her power so skilfully that it was invisible. A profound influence that never backfired. Wisdom, an iron sense of duty, pragmatism, emotional control and no narcissism: these are the traits of sovereignty that make her a model of female authority
Gaby Hinsliff for The Guardian Stop all watches. Unplug the phone. For once, the opening lines of WH Auden's poem, Funeral Blues, seem appropriate to the moment. Like it or not, much of public life will come to a halt in the days of mourning as broadcasters suspend their programmes and a state funeral is prepared. However long it may have been predicted, the death of the longest reigning monarch in British history is a moment [...]

Italian Society of Paediatrics: stopping puberty in dysphoric children does not cause permanent problems. But several studies prove otherwise
UK, Sweden, Finland, USA: much of the world is up in arms against puberty blockers that can irreversibly damage the health of girls and boys. The Tavistock clinic in London is closing down, a thousand families are preparing for a class action in defence of their daughters and sons who have not been properly treated, many American paediatricians are attacking their trade association which is pushing for the administration of these drugs. But for the Italian paediatricians' society these problems do not exist
According to the Italian Society of Paediatrics, the effects of puberty blockers used to treat girls and boys with gender dysphoria are perfectly REVERSIBLE: this means that if the girl/boy changes her mind about her intention to 'change sex' and suspends the 'therapy', her development will resume normally, without any definitive effects and/or health problems. This is not the case at all. The effects of puberty blocker therapy are by no means 'completely reversible', as has been demonstrated by several [...]

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 [...]
