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.

Italian Society of Paediatrics: stopping puberty in dysphoric children does not cause permanent problems. But several studies prove otherwise
UK, Sweden, Finland, USA: much of the world is up in arms against puberty blockers that can irreversibly damage the health of girls and boys. The Tavistock clinic in London is closing down, a thousand families are preparing for a class action in defence of their daughters and sons who have not been properly treated, many American paediatricians are attacking their trade association which is pushing for the administration of these drugs. But for the Italian paediatricians' society these problems do not exist
According to the Italian Society of Paediatrics, the effects of puberty blockers used to treat girls and boys with gender dysphoria are perfectly REVERSIBLE: this means that if the girl/boy changes her mind about her intention to 'change sex' and suspends the 'therapy', her development will resume normally, without any definitive effects and/or health problems. This is not the case at all. The effects of puberty blocker therapy are by no means 'completely reversible', as has been demonstrated by several [...]

California, transfusion of children
The American state proposes itself as a 'health' tourism destination for minors who are unable to access transition where they live. Exempting the parents and relieving the operators of any risk of litigation in the event of subsequent 'repentance'. Meanwhile in the UK, after the closure of the Tavistock, eyes are on a Scottish clinic where the experimental model (puberty blockers and surgery) continues to be applied
There is a real war going on in the United States over the ideology of gender identity and its promotion in schools. A 'culture war' pitting the elites, who fund and promote gender ideology, against the ordinary people who oppose it (see the Disney case here). While Biden from day one has made many legislative concessions to trans activism at the federal level, the Republicans have intercepted the discontent of the citizenry with various counter-legislation at the state level, such as [...]

The ideology of gender identity under attack in UK: NHS orders closure of paediatric transition clinic and points the way to psychological therapies. And Allison Bailey wins employment tribunal case backed by JK Rowling: employer ordered to compensate her for putting her 'under investigation' because of her gender critical views. At the suggestion of Stonewall, who comes out of it with her reputation in tatters
CLOSES TAVISTOCK, CHILDREN'S TRANSITION CLINIC: 'AFFIRMATIVE' APPROACH (DRUGS AND SURGERY) IS DANGEROUS FOR YOUNG PATIENTS The news is sensational: the British National Health Service (NHS) has ordered the closure of the Tavistock & Portman gender clinic for failing to ensure the safety of young patients, most of whom are girls (full article here).

Argentina: stop neutral language in schools
E' was the first country to introduce gender self-identification. Ten years later it is among the first to ban neutral language in schools as it is 'not even that inclusive: it creates a barrier for children with learning difficulties'
In 2012, Argentina was the first country in the world to introduce self-id or gender self-identification into its legal system. Ten years later, it is one of the first countries to ban neutral language in schools. As taught by the mothers of radical feminism and difference thinking, the neutral is a red herring that actually brings the male point of view back to the centre. If the illusion of the neutral is less noticeable in the English language, it is immediately [...]

Where is the Casa delle Donne in Rome going?
'The House we are all' reads the beautiful slogan of the historic enclave in Trastevere. But in that space, which is public and should be open, the#039;agibility is only transfeminist. And after the uncritical support for the Zan ddl -to stop feminicides-, the yes to the 'uterus for rent' and to 'sex work', now also the hymn to male ultra-bodies in women sports: maybe it is time for a reflection
The International House of Women in Rome agrees with the University of Pennsylvania's proposal to name Lia Thomas 'Woman Athlete of the Year'. Lia Thomas, of whom we have spoken several times here, is the famous swimmer who has repeatedly beaten her opponents competing in the women's categories, but who has at least had the merit of finally exploding the issue of male ultra-athletes in women's sports. The post shared by the International House of Women, a confusing little treatise on intersectional feminism, [...].

Maya Forstater, fired for saying sex cannot be changed, wins in court: it was discrimination
Decisive for gender critical feminism around the world was the victory of Maya, a researcher who lost her job over a tweet in which she wrote that biological sex is immutable and that women have rights based on sex. Britain reaffirms the right to criticise gender identity: threats and accusations of transphobia are illegitimate. "A'further proof" says Forstater "that the wind is changing". The final ruling of the labour court also ordered the company that did not renew the contract of the researcher, co-founder of Sex Matters, to pay compensation. A triumph across the board
A year ago, June 2021, Feminist Post published an article on the case of Maya Forstater, the British researcher whose employment contract was not renewed by her employer for expressing critical views on the concept of gender identity and reaffirming the importance of women's gender-based rights. The article ended by reminding readers that Maya's case was not yet over and, although the appeal ruling of the [...]
