The disappearance of women/2: this time from the British boardrooms

Thousands of large British companies will have to report the number of women on their boards, in part to assess pay differentials. Sheldon Mills, director of the FCA, the regulatory body overseeing the survey, proposes that males who perceive themselves as women should be included in the count, thus distorting the statistics. It is not difficult to understand why: Mills is also a leader of Stonewall, a powerful LGBT organisation that continues to dictate the law in the UK.

For those who still have doubts about the gender identity and gender-neutral policies involve the erasure of women, after the pop example of X Factor (see here), here is another rather sensational one.

writes The Times which a thousand large British companies, including Unilever and Astrazeneca, is required to declare the percentage of women on their boards. The main reason is to assess and correct the gender pay gapi.e. the difference in pay between women and men for the same level of performance.

But Once again, Stonewall, a large LGBT organisation, has put its powerful and omnipresent stamp on the situation.

According to the rules proposed by Sheldon Mills, executive director of the Financial Contact Authority (FCA), the regulator for more than 51,000 financial services in the UK, biological males who identify themselves as women should also be included in the tally of women sitting on boards, despite the fact that English law does not allow for self-id, i.e. self-certification of gender.

La scomparsa delle donne/2: stavolta dai CdA inglesi

This not only will distort statistics on the presence of women on boards, but it will be misleading also with regard to the gender pay gap.

Let us take the example of a man who declares himself to be a woman in his mature years: well, this man will not have previously suffered any discrimination linked to his biological sex - i.e. the fact that he was born in a woman's body - in his career and his salary. This will necessarily lead to a underestimation of the gender pay gap against women.

The funny thing, put it this way, is that Sheldon Mills as well as being the executive director of FCA who pushed for this solution -for the benefit of males identifying as women and the male system tout court-. is also an executive of Stonewall: in fact, a position of clear conflict of interest.

The 'Mills protocol' will make women disappear in a fluid, undifferentiated heap.

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 [...]

Not-Mother's Day
Natural motherhood is right-wing, biotech motherhood is left-wing because it is thought of as a right and not suffered as destiny: the diatribe on this issue between radical feminism and transfeminism could be summarised in this way. It's anything but new, but it has become radicalised. Not least because the context has changed so much: a baby boom is one thing, births at an all-time low is another
The other day Minister Eugenia Roccella was prevented from saying what she had to say, right or wrong, at the States General of Natality. The students who were protesting against her were allowed to express their demands - one of their delegates went on stage, and she also included Gaza in her speech, right or wrong - but this was evidently not enough because the minister was prevented from speaking anyway. Perhaps I am wrong, but if I were convinced of the [...]

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 [...].

On abortion only propaganda: 'Fake amendment, good for election campaign'
The recently approved paragraph authorising pro-life associations to enter counselling centres does not actually add to or change what is already provided for in Law 194. Marina Terragni and Francesca Izzo explain. And Pro Vita also hastens to clarify: we will not enter the consultatories. The topic is good for the political clash in view of the European elections. But the law remains as it is
It is sad to have to talk about abortion on command: abortion is a complex and painful experience for the vast majority of women. "For whose pleasure am I aborting?": Carla Lonzi summarised the issue in this way. It is very sad that the issue is agitated in the election campaign, on both sides, and that we feel obliged to say something. In recent days the right wing has proposed and pushed through with confidence an amendment to the PNRR that would authorise pro-life [...].
