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.

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 [...]

The debate on puberty blockers also opens in Italy - finally!
Breaking the silence is the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, which is calling for an open scientific debate on these treatments, which it defines as 'experimental', not supported by adequate studies and at great ethical risk because they predetermine the fate of girls and boys
Much later than in the Great North of Europe, Great Britain, Australia, and some US states - which have abruptly put the brakes on the use of puberty blockers as a 'therapy' for girls and boys with gender non-conforming behaviour - Italy too is finally breaking its silence with a letter addressed to the government by the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, which calls for caution and the opening of a public scientific discussion. Below we reproduce interviews conducted by Marina Terragni for Il Foglio and [...].
