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.

A new AGEDO?
The historic Parents of Homosexuals Association has worked extensively for the acceptance and non-discrimination of gays and lesbians and today dedicates many of its initiatives to children with gender dysphoria. With an essentially affirmative approach, that is, supportive of transition. In a recent webinar it was said perhaps one should break off relations with family members who object and that reasoning about the effects of puberty blockers is off topic. To mention just a few of the more surprising statements
AGEDO (Associazione Genitori Di Omosessuali - Association of Parents of Homosexuals) was an important organisation set up in 1993 on the initiative of Paola Dall'Orto, founder and president until 2007 and awarded the title of Cavaliere al merito della Repubblica in 2009 for her work: 'The aim,' she explained, 'was to help those parents who found themselves in the same situation as us: in a state of discomfort, often despair, and almost always ignorant about the subject [...] We thought we could help these parents to know what they were not [...].

The 'milk' of men
The English National Health Service ensures that the milk produced by a male body -stimulated with ad hoc drug therapy- is as good for the newborn as that of its mother, who is wiped out. Minimising the risks to the child's health largely offset by the ideological and symbolic benefits. It is the transhuman, my beauties!
Men's 'milk' is a perfect example of what we call transhuman. Women's milk, on the other hand, is human, all too human, it is the perfect model of the enduring human, and therefore natural breastfeeding should be degraded, mocked, stigmatised as something to be ashamed of and kept hidden. In fact, it is even a useless and unethical act. On the contrary, promoting and magnifying male 'breastfeeding' shows plastically the way forward. According to the prestigious journal Pediatrics, organ of the American Academy of Pediatrics, it is 'risky' to define [...]

How to convince progressives to give up gender
Terrified of transactivists and worried about sounding 'right-wing', left-wingers support the transition of minors even in the absence of studies showing that 'affirmative therapy' works and promotes the well-being of gender non-conforming girls and boys. "But everyone has a right to evidence-based medicine," argue some liberals determined to "break the spell". And they start DIAG -Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender- to convince democrats in the US and around the world that continuing on this path is wrong and dangerous. For children and for the left. An article by Bernard Lane
A new movement of US Democrats wants to find out how to break the spell of gender ideology and bring the party back to the liberal values of science and reason. Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender (DIAG) launched a project yesterday on X Space (Twitter) to commission research on how to more effectively reach out to left-wing voters who believe that science is now in favour of 'gender-affirming' medicalisation of gender non-conforming youth. "The only way to end this [...]

New York Times: Strong doubts about hormones for children with gender dysphoria
The world's leading woke newspaper has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, starting with the indecent treatment of JK Rowling. Today the paper changes course and in a very long article criticises the 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers, hormones and surgery) for trans minors, giving a voice to some hitherto censored and ostracised detransitioners. Because by now even many Democratic voters have strong doubts. And there is a risk of losing many readers: "get woke, go broke".
For years, the New York Times has been the world's leading woke newspaper and has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, jubilating critical voices. The treatment of JK Rowling is exemplary. In 2022 a very violent subscription campaign invited people to imagine Harry Potter without its creator: the ultimate in cancel culture (see here) A misogynistic and aggressive gesture - the initiative turned out to be a boomerang and many female subscribers threatened to cancel -. A few months ago The Daily published [...].

Men IntintA and other wonders
The health of 'Marco', a trans FtM who is five months pregnant with testosterone, and that of her baby are the least of the problems. What matters to the liberal press talking about an 'anthropological revolution' is whether 'Marco' is to be called mother or father. But only a woman can give birth even if at the registry office her name is male. In this nothing has changed since the dawn of time. In the meantime, the trans front is losing ground: in one year, the number of members of WPATH, the largest transgender health organisation, has fallen by 60 per cent.
La Repubblica online headlines with a triple somersault about the 'young man who got pregnant': pregnant is not dared even at the transphilic GEDI group. The story is that of 'Marco', a girl undergoing testosterone therapy to look more like a man: beard, graver voice -not to 'become male' because sex cannot be changed and every single cell will remain damned XX-. 'Marco' had retained his uterus and ovaries and following a hetero sexual relationship (a [...]

Child rapists: shock report in UK
In Great Britain, 18 rapes a day are committed by minors on their peers: in 2022 these cases numbered 15,000, almost always by very young males. A British police report shows how free access to violent pornography online is normalising criminal sexual behaviour in England and all other Western countries
For years, we have been reporting on the psychological and material damage produced on an entire generation by free access to violent online pornography, consumed by boys and girls from the age of 7 but also much earlier: gang rapes committed by minors are just the tip of the iceberg of this dramatic phenomenon, which has now been analysed and quantified by a study by the British police. On this topic you can find previous articles here, here, here and here. We were almost only [...]
