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.

Transgender' children: it's social contagion. Even the largest trans association admits it
Tik Tok, Youtube and others: the president of WPATH, the world association for trans health, forced to admit that influencers play a large part in the epidemic of transitions among minors, a phenomenon denied by Western progressives who brand every alarm as transphobia. But they do not stop pushing for medicalisation and early surgery
The Honourable Alessandro Zan, first signatory of the infamous bill on gender identity, which ended up in the knighthouse, had denied the dizzying increase in cases of transition of girls and boys, calling the news a 'dangerous statement'. In 2021 there were already numerous statistics indicating the extent of the problem, but apparently Zan was not aware of it - which is unacceptable - or pretended not to know, or more likely ideologically believed that the mere fact of posing the question should be considered proof [...].

Sex and gender: JK Rowling's essay
In her text, the writer explains in detail the reasons why she felt the need to address the trans issue, defying the violence of activists. A manifesto-writer for gender critical feminism translated into Italian by Alessandra Asteriti
Attacking JK Rowling can now also be a business. The latest initiative is that of a young Canadian imbecile art book creator who has decided to de-rowling Harry Potter by publishing a special edition of the saga on the cover of which the author's name disappears: $170 per copy for a despicable abuse of power. Let him keep all the copies in stock. Back to the serious stuff: in June 2020 JK Rowling published an essay on her website detailing her position [...].

Femelliste, a gender critical 'sister' platform is born in France
Harassed, insulted, mocked, threatened: French feminists have collected and catalogued the attacks transactivists have suffered for years. And they have set up an information and training site against the dictatorship of transgender ideology
The name of the site is a play on words that cannot be translated into Italian. The site's creators inform that it has already been used by animal feminists such as Posie Parker, Nicole Roelens and the Boucherie Abolition collective. It would make one think of anti-specism, it is actually more and in some respects a little different. 'Femelle' in French means the female animal (for the human one, the same word as woman, femme, is used). Since they fight for sexual rights [...]

The debate on puberty blockers also opens in Italy - finally!
Breaking the silence is the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, which is calling for an open scientific debate on these treatments, which it defines as 'experimental', not supported by adequate studies and at great ethical risk because they predetermine the fate of girls and boys
Much later than in the Great North of Europe, Great Britain, Australia, and some US states - which have abruptly put the brakes on the use of puberty blockers as a 'therapy' for girls and boys with gender non-conforming behaviour - Italy too is finally breaking its silence with a letter addressed to the government by the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, which calls for caution and the opening of a public scientific discussion. Below we reproduce interviews conducted by Marina Terragni for Il Foglio and [...].

Italian psychoanalysts: stop puberty blockers
The Italian Psychoanalytic Society criticises puberty blockers for children: dangerous and experimental treatment. And joins gender critical feminists and parents in calling for scientific data and a public debate on the best treatment for children suffering from gender dysphoria
For years we gender critical feminists have been fighting against the scandal of the medicalisation of children in the name of gender identity. And for years we have been branded as fascists, reactionaries, bigots. Today at last an accredited Italian scientific society, the Italian Psychoanalytic Society (SPI), is taking a stand, joining us in raising a cry of alarm: the use of puberty blockers is an experimental treatment that has no solid scientific basis, and causes serious side effects. Above all, in most cases dysphoria [...]

UK: health service backs down on 'transgender maternity' services after midwives revolt
Fighting is needed: in Great Britain midwives and nurses are rebelling against the announced opening of courses and wards dedicated to the pregnancy and birth of 'trans and non-binary' people. And the NHS stops the initiative. Meanwhile, in the USA there is talk of uterus transplants between living people: donor women for the benefit of men who wish to have 'female physiological experiences'. The old patriarchal dream: to take the place of women. Today acted out by neo-patriarchs T
Fighting serves. The revolt of midwives and nurses has foiled the English National Health Service's (NHS) plan to organise dedicated 'transgender maternity' services. On 16 December, an advertisement had appeared to recruit staff to manage the training of 'trans and non-binary people giving birth' in 40 NHS maternity services, an announcement that provoked an immediate reaction from midwives. A group of around 300 nurses, midwives and psychologists wrote an open letter to Lizzie [...]
