Biden administration wipes out women and girls

Without any public debate and against the opinion of the majority of Americans, President Joe Biden is pushing ahead with replacing the word 'sex' with 'gender identity' in all administrative acts and documents, with serious impact on the lives of women and girls. All over the world, liberals and progressives are pursuing this same goal in the service of the trans-lobby.

It's happening. It is as bad as it looks and no one should be in any doubt. All that Janice Raymond had aforementioned in 1979 it came true. Everything you see publiche 11th Hour blog is a reality. It is not at all a question of plotting.

On the first day that he came into office the President Biden signed the executive order 13988 on preventing and combating discrimination on the grounds of gender identity or sexual orientation. Many of us, including myself, naively assumed that this would mean that within 100 days federal agencies would submit rules for public notification and debate, such as requested by the Administrative Procedure Act. None of this happened. The administration has meticulously erased sex as a significant category throughout federal administrative law, without notice or opportunity to discuss it.

In February, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has issued a reminder announcing that would reinterpret the word sex to include 'gender identity' in US housing legislation. This means the end of all women-only accommodation, including domestic violence shelters and university dormitories, because the memorandum covers "almost all housing, including private housing, public housing and housing receiving federal funding", according to the website of the HUD .

In March, the Department of Justice (DOJ) has announced that the prohibition of discrimination on the grounds of sex in Title IX will be interpreted as also prohibiting discrimination on the grounds of "gender identity". This means the end of women's and girls' sports in all federally funded institutions.

In recent days the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has announced of submitted a final rule to the Federal Register explaining that interpreted the word sex to include 'gender identity' when assessing complaints of discrimination related to the provision of health care under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This means that women will not be allowed to seek gynaecological care at any health facility that receives federal dollars.

All this without notice or opportunity for public discussion.

Meanwhile, the Department of Health and Human Services is openly lying to the American people. Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act is codified (i.e. written in the official code of the United States) at 42 USC 18116. On its website, the Department says Section 1557 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, colour, national origin, sex (including sexual orientation and gender identity), age, or disability in covered health care programs or activities. 42 USC § 18116(a)." This is patently false. 42 USC 18116 (a) makes no mention of 'gender identity'.

All these agencies are referring to the Supreme Court ruling in Bostock v. Clayton County which stated that people cannot be discriminated against on the basis of 'transgender status' in employment (Title VII), to justify the complete deletion of sex as a meaningful category throughout the law of the United Statesi, despite the Supreme Court's express insistence that its ruling was limited to the employment context. In its decision, the Court stated:

"Employers are concerned that our decision goes beyond Title VII to other federal or state laws that prohibit sex discrimination. And, based on Title VII itself, they say that sex-segregated bathrooms, locker rooms etc will no longer be acceptable after our decision today. But we do not set ourselves these legislative goals; we have not gone into the controversy over the meaning of their terms, and we do not prejudge any gender issues today. Even in Title VII we do not pretend to talk about bathrooms, changing rooms or anything else of that kind. The only question we have asked is whether an employer who fires someone simply because he is homosexual or transgender has discriminated against that individual "because of his sex"..

Bostock is was a bad judgment for women and girls, and many US feminists have said since when it was published in June 2020. One of the reasons why Bostock is negative for women and girls is the fact that they have ensured that the "transgender status' is equated with gender in legal protection (without ever explaining what 'transgender status' means). Another reason is that many of us (quite rightly, as we are seeing) had predicted that it would be used to justify the cancellation of sex through federal law.

In April, the US branch of the Women's Human Rights Campaign (WHRC USA) sent a letter signed by nearly 1,500 women worldwide, at the White House. In this letter we stated:

"We, the undersigned women of the world, are horrified and disgusted by the vicious assault on the rights, privacy and safety of women and girls carried out by the "Executive Order on Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation" and subsequent developments as outlined below. This injustice will have global consequences.

Anyone, anywhere, is invited to send that letter to the White House using their page of contact at any time (no need to be a US resident)... Feel free to tell my President that you oppose the annulment of women and girls throughout the United States and the impact its actions will have on women and girls globally"

Previously, on 8 March, WHRC USA presented this same letter to Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer, also signed by some 1500 women worldwide, imploring him not to bring the so-called Equality Act to the Senate floor. On 16 March, WHRC USA presented this testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, explaining why we opposed the Equality Act as written. We received written confirmation that the testimony was provided to all members of the Committee. We were pleased to learn that the Senate did not act on the Equality Act. But now it is clear that the Administration is doing by executive fiat what the Senate did not do by legislation. All without any input from the American people.

The Women's Liberation Front led surveys proving that the majority of the American people support the protection of same-sex spaces. Our administration knows this, but doesn't care.

Again, I really hope I am wrong about all this, and if I am, let someone tell me. In the meantime I will just reiterate: "Mr. President, how much longer will women have to wait for their freedom? ". I'm still waiting.

Spain: woke sex also among the reasons for the end of Podemos
Ley Trans. Only Yes is Yes' law that reduced penalties for sex offenders. And now also a Manifesto for Sex Education for All* that jeopardises the safety of girls and boys. The spirit is always the same: a queer sexuality promoted by outgoing minister Irene Montero. Which, however, voters and electors apparently do not like. An analysis by lecturer Juana Gallego, feminist affected by the cancel culture
In yesterday's local elections in Spain, the left lost disastrously - as in Italy, for that matter. In particular, there was the stinging defeat of Podemos, which in many regions almost went extinct. In the analyses of the Spanish vote, perhaps not enough emphasis is given to two manifesto-laws of Podemos, and in particular of the transfeminist minister Irene Montero: the 'Only Yes is Yes' law, which reduced penalties for sexual crimes, and the Ley Trans, which [...]

Transgender: the victory of Puer Aeternus
An evolution of the unisex who struggled against gender stereotypes, the 'gender' phenomenon among adolescents expresses the attempt to escape the biological debt-obligation and the need to feel disengaged from stepmotherly nature. But the transgender person is by no means his or her own creator: if anything, he or she is subservient to a totipotent 'spirit' that enslaves the mind and psyche. And the gay movement that advocates puerile simulation fails to see that it is precisely homosexual identity that comes off worst
Transgender ideology goes beyond the transsexual claim of the construction of sex by subtraction or addition of something from a matrix, because it challenges the very existence of the male and the female, and especially the latter, making the female gender a product of educational norms, DIY craftsmanship, beauty shop, chemical laboratory, surgical table. Both appeal to the 'truth' of the omnipotent creation of the sexes, destitute of actual reality. Young women in particular are unfortunately fertile ground [...].

Jama: when men give birth
In an incredible, recently published study, the American Medical Association's journal, one of the most important in the field, tries to give scientific backing to the idea that childbirth is not just a female experience. Because if it were exclusive, it would also be exclusionary. An operation on language in collision with reality
As we know, there are words that can no longer be used, especially in international scientific documents and studies. At the top of the list of tabooed words are all the terms that have to do with female difference understood as the exclusive possibility of giving birth to human beings, and thus: 'woman' -if biologically understood and not open to define persons not born women-, 'mother' and 'maternal', 'breast', with reference to breast-feeding, and so on. The operation on language aims to qualify [...].

Legislation against violence against women should talk about sex and not 'gender identity': open letter to the European Parliament
Violence against women will not be combated if the texts of laws and treaties do not clearly refer to sex and not 'gender'. We join feminist and gender critical groups in an appeal to MEPs who will vote on the Commission's anti-violence proposal: write clearly in the text that women and girls are the female sex and leave no room for gender ideology
We, too, signed the letter to the European Commission on combating violence against women and domestic abuse drafted by WORIADS, a coalition of gender-critical citizens whose aim is to inform and raise awareness of the dangers of gender identity in the European institutions. The letter demands that European regulations on violence against women clearly recognise the category of biological sex. Below is the full text that will be sent to the members of the European Parliament who will vote on the [...].

The Bundestag is preparing to vote on a proposal modelled on the horrible Spanish law that allows free choice of gender even for minors with a simple self-declaration at the registry office (in addition to the possibility of changing one's mind several times). Also in the front line here is a left-wing woman counterpart of Irene Montero: the Green Minister for Women's Affairs Lisa Paus. But the opinion of the Federal Constitutional Court, which expresses many doubts about the deletion of the category 'sex', will be needed.
What is a woman? The answer that Justice Minister Buschmann (FDP, Liberal Democratic Party) and Women's Affairs Minister Lisa Paus (Greens, pictured) give to this question is: a woman is anyone who claims to be a woman. This is the core of the 'bill on self-determination in gender registration' that both ministries have now presented. With a simple declaration at the registry office, everyone will in future be able to change their sex: from male to [...]

UK: 'Our children indoctrinated at school'. Parents of 'trans' children sue government
"You have ruined our children': families of minors who declare themselves to be 'of the opposite sex' are suing the British Department of Education for allowing trans-indoctrination in schools by Stonewall and other powerful LGBT organisations -the same propaganda that we would have liked to introduce with the Zan bill-. And for not having been informed in time about the children's discomfort. The initiative could sweep over the British government like an avalanche, which is running for cover by ordering an independent enquiry and drawing up new guidelines.
A group of parents of so-called 'trans children' are suing the UK Department of Education for steering their children towards the devastating medical transition. Specifically, the parents accuse the ministry of failing to provide guidance to teachers and doing nothing to prevent a 'harmful' gender ideology, pushed by LGBT pressure groups, from taking hold in thousands of schools. We have spoken about transpropaganda in schools many times: for more see here, and [...]
