The global abolition of sex

The law just passed in Scotland replacing sex with free choice of gender. The one being passed in Spain. And Germany's project. In her article in Newsweek, Kara Dansky also warns the United States about self-id. But from Great Britain, Sweden and Finland come signals in stark contrast: the game is still to be played.

22 December was a black day for gender critical feminism: despite lively protests outside Parliament lScotland passed the law allowing gender self-identification or self-id -with no exception for sex offenders who will be able to freely access, by identifying themselves as women, women's spaces. Also in Spain the Ley Trans which has a very similar layout has passed the first step in the Lower House and is on its way to final approval in the Senate in the coming weeks. Finally, the Germany is in turn about to examine and possibly pass a law that would introduce self-id. In Italy, the centre-right majority should guarantee against the possibility of such a law -at least for the duration of the legislature- but the pressure from the lobby for the abolition of biological sex remains very strong.

Europe seems to be heading down the self-id road, but important counter-trend signals are coming from the High North, in particular by Sweden who officially broke with the WPATH guidelines, world association for transgender health that imposes puberty blockers and hormones on children with gender dysphoria. Sweden indicates psychological support as the first approach, not unlike Great Britain, Finland, Holland: the game is still to be played, here as well as overseas where things are no different, as explained in this article on Newsweek Kara Dansky, president of the US section of Women's Declaration International and author of the book The Abolition of Sex: How the 'Transgender' Agenda Harms Women and Girls.

22 December the Scottish Parliament approved a controversial new law which allows for 'gender self-identification'. Two days earlier, he had rejected an amendment to the bill that would have prevented sex offenders from entering women's prisons on the basis of their self-declared 'female gender identity'. On Wednesday morning, he rejected another amendment that would have made a request for a sex change retroactively fraudulent if the applicant was subsequently convicted of rape.

This means that any adult (or child under 16), including sex offenders, can obtain legal recognition as belonging to the opposite sex on the basis of his simple opinion. The law has exceeded the objections of countless Scottish women who have repeatedly explained that this will mean that men will be able to force their way into women-only spaces, such as domestic violence shelters and prisons, and despite the fact that two-thirds of the Scottish population is oppose.

Over the past few days, women (and many men) have been protesting in front of Holyrood, carrying placards and banners to show their dissent. Also a UN Special Rapporteur on violence against women has put in guard on the dangerous repercussions of the law.

Also the Congress Spain passed similar legislation on 22 December and this bill will now go to the Senate Spanish. The German legislator is discussing something similar and will consider legislation early next year.

Do you think these developments are irrelevant to the US? Well, think again. For years, the US Congress has been considering a bill called the Equality Act ( HR 5 ). The text of HR 5 does not contain the phrase 'self-ID'. That bill would redefine the word 'sex' to include the nebulous phrase 'gender identity' throughout US civil rights laws. During his 2020 campaign President Joe Biden promised to pass the bill within 100 days of taking office, a bill that has been before the US Senate since March 2021. The US branch of the organisation feminist Global Women's Declaration International suggested an alternative bill, the Equality for All Act, which would protect women and girls on the basis of gender; lesbians, gays and bisexuals on the basis of sexual orientation; and all people on the basis of non-conformity with sexual stereotypes.

Self-identification is already law in California since 2018. In that state anyone can obtain a new birth certificate with the opposite sex indicated as their own. The law does not require any medical expertise or surgical or hormonal modifications.

Self-ID means that any person (man or woman) can simply declare themselves to be a member of the opposite sex and ask the government to validate that illusion upon request. No one, anywhere in the world, has adequately addressed the implications. Most of the people who globally reject this project are politically left-wing feminists, and the vast majority of people (regardless of political orientation) agree with us.

Feminists have argued for years that allowing anyone to 'self-identify' as any gender will result in men entering women's spaces. This is already happening in the US at state level. Many states allow men to be locked up in the women's prisons on the basis of their self-declared 'female gender identity'. THE SB 132 of California was enacted in 2020 and came into force in January 2021. The state of Washington does the same thing by way of policy administrative . The New Jersey implemented a similar policy through a agreement settlement with the ACLU. Imprisoned women throughout the country are assaulted, raped e incintand by men posing as women (many of whom have been convicted of very serious crimes such as rape and murder). These women are terrified . This should be a national and international scandal.

What else was overlooked in the campaign to redefine sex as 'gender identity'? National health bodies such as NIH and CDC will be able to monitor the impacts of various drugs on men and women as distinct sex classes? L' FBI will be able to continue to monitor crimes on the basis of gender?

All this is the inevitable result of the fiction that sex is not real or that it can be changed. I argued the need to reject this in my book of 2021 The Abolition of Sex: How the 'Transgender' Agenda Harms Women and Girls.

Anyone who cares about the rights, privacy and safety of women and girls; anyone who cares about recognising the material reality of biological sex; and anyone who thinks public policy should be based on science must take a stand. Now would be a good time. Sex was abolished by Scottish law this month and could soon happen in Spain and Germany. Americans should not be surprised when we are next.

Hormone-addicted children: an in vivo trial. Who will pay for it?
Hilary Cass, the British paediatrician who produced a monumental report on 'affirmative therapy' for minors does not mince words: those children 'were used as footballs'. There has never been any evidence that puberty blockers work, that they reduce suicide risk, that they increase patients' well-being: far from it. Will those who, in the absence of scientific certainty, have inflicted these treatments, who have even persecuted so many people of goodwill determined to expose the scandal in the name of truth, go unpunished? Keira Bell, the best known detransitioner, hopes for criminal consequences
Englishwoman Keira Bell, a former patient of the Tavistock Clinic in London, is certainly the most famous of the de-transitioners. After the publication of the Cass Review she tells The Times that she would like to see criminal proceedings started so that the children treated by the clinic with puberty blockers and hormones can finally get justice. Keira is now 27, judges the treatment she was subjected to -blockers, hormones, removal of breasts- "experimental at best, destructive at worst" and believes the professionals have [...]

UK. Cass report: no more affirmative therapy for children with gender-related problems
Pediatrician Hilary Cass' final report on child transitions comes out: offering affirmative therapy was a failure. There is no evidence on the effectiveness of puberty blockers, which should never be prescribed except in rare cases. Hormones of the opposite sex should not be given before the age of 18, and even between 18 and 25 caution should be exercised. A definitive watershed
The long-awaited final report of the Cass Review, an independent review chaired by paediatrician Hilary Cass on public health services for children and young people with 'gender dysphoria', came out this morning. Its final report and recommendations were presented to NHS England. Here are the highlights. The condemnation for affirmative therapy is final, and determined by the absolute lack of evidence that puberty blockers and opposite-sex hormones bring real benefits to children suffering from 'gender incongruence [...]

Hormone therapies on children: doctors' insurances start to run away
The risk of million-dollar claims by minors undergoing irreversible treatment who regret the 'affirmative therapy' is too high: this is why some insurance companies no longer feel like covering 'gender medicine' under their policies
Those who resist the market for the transition of gender non-conforming girls and boys know very well that almost always the turning point - as was the case in the UK with Keira Bell and in the US with Chloe Cole - is the lawsuit brought by a former child-or treated-or with blockers and hormones against the doctors who administered the 'therapy': the detransitioners' side is decisive. Then the game becomes money versus money: the money collected by the gender clinics versus the money they end up [...].

Also in Wyoming stop the transition of minors
It is the 24th US state to ban drug and surgical treatments on the bodies of gender non-conforming girls and boys. Doctors and practitioners who continue to prescribe affirmative therapy will lose their licences. Decisive in the passage of the law was the testimony - and legal action - of detransitioner Chloe Cole. A regulation banning trans-indoctrination in schools was also approved.
From next 1 July, hormone treatments and gender transition surgery of minors will be banned in Wyoming. With the passage of the law, Senate File 99, Wyoming will join 23 other US states, from Alabama to West Virginia, that have banned or severely restricted gender-affirming medicine on minors. Under the law, doctors, pharmacists and other health care providers who provide gender-affirming care could have their licences suspended or revoked. Opposed by Governor Mark Gordon, [...]

The UK has decided: no more puberty blockers for children with dysphoria. It is the ultimate turning point (in memory of Yarden Silveira, 1998-2021, killed by 'sex change')
Not only the stop at the Tavistock Clinic: no British centre for 'gender non-conforming' girls and boys will be able to prescribe puberty blockers any more. The approach will have to be solely psychological: a resounding turning point that will have knock-on effects all over the world, including Italy. One of the biggest scandals in the history of medicine is finally coming to an end: will someone pay for the thousands of irreversibly damaged minors? Recalling here one among them who lost his life because of the unscrupulousness of doctors and surgeons
The British National Health Service (NHS) announces that PUBERTY BLOCKERS WILL NO LONGER BE ADMINISTRATED TO MINORS WITH GENDER Dysphoria: this is huge and heart-warming news after years and years of fighting on the front line. So not only is the dedicated service of the Tavistock Clinic in London closing, but no centre for the treatment of minors with dysphoria will use puberty blockers any more. The decision, described as 'historic', will have knock-on effects worldwide, [...].

WPATH scandal: 'therapies' for children with dysphoria are improvised and prescribed without real consent
The World Professional Transgender Health is considered the leading global scientific and medical authority on 'gender medicine': over the past decades its standards of care have shaped the guidelines, policies and practices of governments, medical associations, public health systems and private clinics worldwide, including the WHO. But leaked documents reveal the neglect of children -including children with severe mental disorders- subjected to improvised treatments, without taking into account the long-term consequences and without being sure they were clear about what they were doing
The news manages to shock even those who have long fought against affirmative therapy - puberty blockers, hormones and surgery - for gender non-conforming minors, such as psychoanalyst David Bell who exposed the scandal at the Tavistock Clinic in London: 'Even for me the contents of these files are shocking and disturbing,' he said. "The files suggest that some WPATH members are aware that gender-affirming treatments sometimes cause very serious harm and [...]
