Spain stops the Ley Trans. Germany as well

A great victory for Spanish feminism: the government split over the Trans Law, which introduced self-certification of gender, and the abstention of the Psoe blocked the process. A similar law was blocked in the Bundestag. After the stop to self-id in the UK, the transactivists are still in the corner. A boomerang for the Zan bill as well

Bad blow for transhumanists78 votes in favour, 143 against and 120 abstentions, the process of the Ley Trans in Spain (gender self-determination) came to a halt.

This is not a definitive victory: Podemos, which proposed the law, announces that it will not stop. But the party has been severely weakened by the recent administrative vote, after which the leader Pablo Iglesias decided to leave politics. Podemos has lost much of its bargaining power. It is unlikely to be able to bring the proposal back on the table. The 120 abstentions are almost all attributable to the Psoe, who, despite being opposed to the Ley Trans (see here) did not want to crush the right-wing no's (in this strongly criticised by feminism). The choice to abstain has however split the government majority.

Today Spanish feminism has many reasons to celebrate. The patient and rigorous information work carried out by the united cartel ContraBorrado on the risks of the law for women, girls and children has borne fruit, hopefully for good. In addition to the free determination of one's gender for adults without any expert opinion or judgement - today in Spain, as in Italy, the 'change of gender' requires a specific medical, psychological and legal procedure - there is also the possibility of a 'gender reassignment'. the Ley Trans intended to extend the 'right' also to children under 12 years of age, and without parental consent (the text of the law here).

Children's transition is the most sensitive issue everywhereafter years of wild and unregulated practice and thousands of transitions (especially of girls, from female to male) Great Britain has introduced the need for a court ruling to authorise puberty blocker 'therapy'.; Sweden said stop; lArkansas has declared these drug treatments illegal; lFinland revised the guidelines, encouraging psychological treatment for 'non-conforming' children.. In Italy, the use of hormone blockers has been authorised and practised for some years, but the numbers of minors treated are unknown.The time has come to get to know them and to do battle.

After Spain, it was Germany's turn. The Bundestag stopped a Gender self-determination bill proposed by the Greens and Neue Linke (see here).

The stop in Germany and Spain (after Great Britain also rejected the self-id) causes an backlash also to the Zan bill under discussion in Italy. The proposal does not explicitly talk about gender self-determination but introduces the concept of gender identity, lintel of the law and forerunner for true self-id goal, as clearly stated by Marilena Grassadonia at the pro-Zan demonstration in Milan (see here), confirmed by the square in Rome and the iconic cover of the weekly magazine l'Espresso.

'Destroy women's rights': JK Rowling against the Scottish premier and her trans law
As in Spain, feminism in Scotland fights against a law wanted by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon introducing gender self-determination without any medical diagnosis and lowering the age for access to 16. And this time too, the Harry Potter author stands by women, girls and children
JK Rowling takes a photo of herself wearing a t-shirt that reads 'Nicola Sturgeon, destroyer of women's rights' to support women protesting in front of the Scottish Parliament against the controversial gender recognition reform bill wanted by Scotland's First Minister. Activists from For Women Scotland gathered in front of the Scottish Parliament this morning for a demonstration against the bill promoted by Sturgeon, which would make gender self-determination easier - we have [...]

The Iranians are fighting for us too
Women in Iran are oppressed, violated and killed precisely because of their bodies as women. And their revolt could free everyone and everyone. Is'the woke West of'gender identity and 'freedom of the veil' ready to understand and support this revolution that blows for us too? Woman, life, freedom
In the uncertain and ever-changing geopolitical order of our time, in the midst of a global political agenda that from right to left forgets women, betraying, albeit in different ways, female exclusivity and the richness of sexual difference, the struggle of Iranian women has something epic, something moving. The killing of Mahsa Amini shows how the issue of the 'veil as freedom' is the quintessence of intellectual dishonesty, of logical fallacy, of an age-old lie. To 22-year-old Mahsa, the desire to 'feel the [...]

US, gay couple sues: surrogacy is a 'right', must be paid for by health insurance
The two men's claim aims to have the fact that they do not have a womb recognised as a 'disability': an absurd, envious and revealing claim. If they win in court all over America insurance companies and employers would have to reimburse gestations for other for men
A gay couple filed a lawsuit in New York labour court demanding that their employer-provided insurance company pay all the costs of the surrogate uterus for them, in order to ensure 'equal access to fertility treatment'. For all intents and purposes, they are demanding that a gay male couple become a protected category under the law because they are both without a womb and without access to one. If they win the case, in all [...]

Girls removing their breasts
Transactivist propaganda invites girls uncomfortable with their female form to compress their breasts with special bands (binders), the first step towards the final mastectomy. The same misogynistic violence as the traditional 'breast ironing' practised in Africa. In the UK, the publicly funded charity Mermaids is under indictment for sending binders to teenage girls against parental advice.
Breast ironing is a horrible practice still in use in some regions of Africa, particularly in Cameroon. It involves the destruction of the breasts of adolescent girls by red-hot instruments -old irons, spatulas, stones or shells- and is generally practised by the adult women of the family. The purpose is to make the girls less attractive in order to save them from rape and early pregnancies that could tarnish the honour of the family group. The practice causes serious damage to the health of teenage girls, [...].

Feminism and the Right
In response to Julie Bindel, who considers the wall erected by the transactivist left but also the risks of an alliance with the right: in Italy, the historical novelty -a right-wing woman premier, Giorgia Meloni- further complicates the picture. What to do then? What is happening in Spain over the horrible Ley Trans perhaps points to a good way forward for everyone
Julie Bindel and Harvey Jeni take the bull by the horns: given that for too long there has been no possibility of dialogue with the left, can radical and gender-critical feminism look to the right without taking risks? This is a theme that we in Italy are well aware of and that agitated the entire election campaign that ended with the landslide victory of a right-wing woman, Giorgia Meloni, who has never declared herself a feminist. The fact that today the right in Italy is [...]

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- [...].
