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.

Born of a surrogate mother
Olivia Maurel, 32, was born to a surrogate mother and today she is fighting on the front line against the practice, which she describes as 'atrocious' and 'monstrous'. She always knew something was wrong with her family. She suffers from depression, has had problems with alcoholism and has attempted suicide several times. Only recently has she discovered the truth about her origins and that she suffered the trauma of abandonment. "To no child," she says, "should what happened to me ever happen again."
Commercial or 'altruistic' surrogacy must be abolished. These are the words of Olivia Maurel, born in December 1991 in Kentucky by traditional surrogacy (i.e. in which the oocyte also belongs to the 'surrogate mother', ed.), who recounted her experience in a conference at the parliament of the Czech Republic. Today, married with two children in Cannes, 'proud to be a feminist' as we read on her X page, she fights against surrogacy. Her testimony, very valuable as there are still very few [...]

Israel 7 October: Appeal for recognition as mass feminicide
The women victims of the Hamas attack were not killed like all other civilians: they were exposed naked, raped, brutalised, humiliated, decapitated, their bodies burnt and torn to pieces. "We wanted to dirty them," say the terrorists. The violence against these women meets the definition of mass feminicide: from France a petition to international NGOs

No more drugs for children with gender dysphoria!
For many years a pioneer of puberty blocker and hormone-based treatments for 'gender non-conforming' minors, Finnish psychiatrist Riittakerttu Kaltiala now denounces these 'therapies' as dangerous, useless and lacking in scientific evidence. And she calls on doctors around the world to find the courage to break the silence imposed by activist censorship and the media's rubber wall
In Italy there persists an obstinate silence on pharmacological treatments for minors with gender dysphoria (puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, 'gender reassignment' surgery) according to the protocol of so-called gender affirmative therapy. It is not possible to know how many minors have been treated or are undergoing treatment, in how many and which centres they are treated and with what 'success' (or failure) rates. While throughout the Western world the debate has been open for some time and in some countries [...]
