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.

Mail-bombing to Repubblica: Unacceptable misinformation on puberty blockers
In an unacceptable article -without any reference to scientific data- Michela Marzano says that puberty blockers would be 'temporary and reversible' and would protect against suicide, but this is disproved by numerous studies.
Text for a mail-bombing, to be sent to the editor Maurizio Molinari m.molinari@repubblica.it Dear Director Molinari, we read Michela Marzano's article, entitled 'Nobody touches gender identity', published in your newspaper on Sunday 5 February. And we cannot fail to note with dismay that the author tackles the very delicate issue of 'dysphoric' minors without any scientific reference, claiming among other things that 'the suspension' induced by drugs that block puberty 'is temporary and reversible', that recourse to such drugs 'allows [...].

Holland: if you block the development of girls and boys you push them to become trans
The protocol - pausing puberty to allow minors to 'choose' their sex - they invented. But even the Dutch now admit that in 9 out of 10 cases blockers no longer give time to 'decide' but are the start of the transition. A self-fulfilling prophecy. And that the effects of these drugs are by no means reversible
Amsterdam University Clinic UMC, a pioneer in the use of puberty blockers, has admitted that children taking these drugs may find themselves locked into increased medicalisation. The admission comes following the publication earlier this month of a new retrospective study examining 20 years of hormonal interventions known as the 'Dutch protocol', conducted on 1,766 children and adolescents between 1972 and 2018 at the famed Amsterdam clinic and published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine. But [...]

GenerAzioneD, Italian association of parents of minors who define themselves as 'trans', is founded
A guidance and information site to support and accompany mothers and fathers going through this complex experience: testimonies, interviews, and links to contribute to an in-depth debate that today does not find space in the mainstream media
The cultural, apolitical, non-denominational and non-profit association GenerAzioneD has been established. The association's primary aim is to inform about the problems of gender dysphoria/incongruence in children, adolescents and young adults. Through the dissemination of testimonies, news, national and international articles in translation and the promotion of opportunities for discussion, GenerAzioneD aims to foster the transparency necessary to ensure the best possible care for those affected. GenerAzioneD was in fact born from the meeting of some parents who shared the experience of having children [...]

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 [...]
