"People who menstruate. I'm sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?". JK Rowling

The Australian Senate has passed a motion preventing the federal government from using 'gender-inclusive' language in any text. The senator from One Nation Malcolm Roberts made the motion in the Senate and the proposal passed 33 to 31.

"Our biology and our fundamental relationships are represented through the following definitions: mother, father, son, daughter, brother, sister, boy, girl, grandmother, grandfather, aunt, uncle, female, male, man, woman, lady, sir, daddy, mummy, husband, wife "reads the motion. "Genuine inclusion on a large scale cannot be achieved through distortions of biological and relational definitions"

The motion goes on to state that "the right of an individual to choose his or her own definitions and pronouns for personal use must not dehumanise the human species and undermine the gender".

The motion calls on the federal government to "Rejecting the use of distorted language such as gestational/non-gestational parent, menstruating, breastfeeding parent, birthing/non-birthing parent". It also states that any material produced, including legislation, websites and documentation as well as employee training must ignore these terms.

The motion passed the upper house with the support of the coalition senators. The Green Senator Janet Rice attempted to comment on the motion but was denied permission. She did not hold back later, posting the motion on Twitter.

"I expect this shit from One Nation." he said. "But the Morrison government has just voted in favour of the disgusting and bigoted Senate motion of One Nation that seeks to deny the identity of trans and non-binary people. So the motion passed. What happened to government for all Australians? Sacks of shit!".

The proposal comes in the wake of the suggestion by researchers at the Australian National University to drop terms such as 'mother', 'father' and 'breastfeeding' to be more inclusive. "Many students will identify as 'mothers' or 'fathers', but the use of these terms alone to describe parenting excludes those who do not identify with gender binarism."the research found.

Germany: paedophiles in celebration. Fewer criminal risks for possession of child pornography
With a change in the law, the Bundestag decreases the penalties for possessing and/or distributing pornographic images of girls and boys, which have been downgraded to misdemeanours. News enthusiastically welcomed by paedophile groups pushing to lower the age of sexual consent to 12
Free paedophilia is also part of the transhuman umbrella: to progressively, preferably quickly, break down even this limit, to admit and even encourage transhuman sex - after all, girls and boys are at the heart of transhuman policies. A legislative innovation approved by the Bundestag takes a step in this direction. Geneviève Gluck tells us about it The German parliament voted by a majority to remove a section of the penal code that made the possession of child pornography a criminal offence. Once in force [...]

Why Italy did not sign the EU declaration on LGBTIQ rights (it did sign another one though)
The declaration against homolesbobtransphobia signed in Europe by all the member states passed into silence. Great media clamour, on the other hand, over a second declaration not signed by Italy because it is strongly unbalanced on gender identity on the model of the Zan fu-ddl: here are all the critical points
A few days ago, on the occasion of the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) in Europe, the following resolution was passed unanimously - including Italy, therefore: 1498th Meeting of the Committee of Ministers (7 May 2024) - EU Statement ahead of the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia on 17 May 2007.05.2024 Press and information team of the Delegation to the COUNCIL OF EUROPE in StrasbourgI have the honour to speak on behalf of the European Union and its [...]

UK: gender identity will no longer be discussed at school
A new crackdown by the Sunak government after the Cass report, which also warns of the risks of social transition of minors, the so-called 'alias identity' that has already been adopted by many Italian schools: in the classroom, it will no longer be taught that one can change sex and sex education will be calibrated according to age. And never without parental consent
After years and years of transactivists from associations such as Stonewall and Mermaids making the rounds with their sex education courses in English schools of all levels, Rishi Sunak's government announced today with Education Minister Gillian Keegan new mandatory guidelines for schoolchildren and students on these issues. Classrooms will no longer teach that you can change your gender identity, as has been the case until now [...]

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 [...]

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 [...].
