'Lia' Thomas wins and the patriarchy rejoices

Not even the second scandalous victory of swimmer 'Lia' Thomas is enough to break the media silence on the incredible injustice of men's bodies in women's sports. In the meantime, Iowa has signed a decree to save competitions from these invasions. Another thirty or so US states are planning similar laws. And Australia's prime minister is committed to women's sport. BREAKING NEWS: FLORIDA GOVERNOR RON DESANTIS HAS REFUSED TO RECOGNISE THOMAS'S VICTORY AND HAS DECLARED HIS COMPATRIOT EMMA VEYANT (RUNNER-UP) THE LEGITIMATE WINNER OF THE COMPETITION.

"Lia' Thomas, THE trophy-stealing swimmer (see here), easily won the American University League (NCAA I) final, as expected.

However, it did not receive ovations to the finish line. All the applause went to the girls, the real winners: runner-up Emma Weyant, Erica Sullivan (third) and Brooke Forde (fourth).

The photo of the podium (top) is worth a thousand words: Thomas towers alone on the left, in front of the sign with the number 1, while the three girls embrace and celebrate together on the third podium.

BREAKING NEWS: FLORIDA GOVERNOR RON DESANTIS REFUSED TO RECOGNISE THOMAS' VICTORY AND DECLARED HIS COMPATRIOT EMMA VEYANT (SECOND RUNNER-UP) THE LEGITIMATE WINNER OF THE COMPETITION..

A paradoxical situation, that of 'Lia' Thomas, which can no longer be ignored: even remaining silent, or mute the news - as most of the media do mainstream- is a stance.

In the UK, where the paradoxes created by the Gender Self-Determination Act have long been evident (peak trans), took the floor former swimmer Sharron Davies, silver medal at the 1980 Moscow Olympics. Davies wrote in Daily MailI don't want to exclude trans athletes, but Lia Thomas has shown that we must have equal opportunities for women in sport: in sport it's bodies that count, not feelings"(see here).

Faced with ambiguous and politically correct positions in the media, the real public debate is on social media. Once again, it is mainly women who are talking. In Italy, it came naturally to quote the old advertising slogan: "You like to win easy..." Girls say: "Doesn't he feel ridiculous?" Or even: "Don't these men feel guilty about winning important prizes taken away from women? Don't they feel like worms?" While mothers ask themselves, "What will I tell my athlete daughters if one day they are faced with a situation like this?"

Silence, however, from the left, those who last year were shouting loudly that women had nothing to fear from the Zan DDL, prepared ad hoc to pave the way for gender self-identification. The same very "inclusive" men who last summer were rooting for Petrillo's qualification. at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo (see here).

On the other hand, the old-style male chauvinists did not keep quiet, who rejoiced saying: women, you asked for it.

In reality, neither female athletes nor professional women in sport have been asked or heard on the issue, indeed were reprimanded when they protested.

But it is true, there are women who, just like the male chauvinists, they cheered for 'Lia' Thomas. These are the transfeminists that, in absolute contradiction with themselves, agree to fulfil male desiresas long as these men say they 'feel like women'. Even when, like Thomas or Petrillo, already mediocre athletes in the men's category, they want to compete against the women, win effortlessly and 'go down in history' by setting new records in the discipline.

We would like to ask the transfeminists who adulate 'Lia' Thomas how they feel about being perfectly aligned with the patriarchy.

And to the girls who observe them on social media: isn't it worth asking whether positions identical to those of the male chauvinists are really feminist?

What is 'feminist' about transfeminism, which allows women to be defeated at the outset?

La Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds signed a decree law to save women's sport: a law that prohibits identified trans males from competing in female competitions in school sports nstate.

Since the entry into force of theBiden's executive order, signed in first day of his mandate, similar laws have been proposals in some 30 countries, and have already been passed in, for example, Florida, Alabama, Arkansas, South Dakota, Tennessee. Significantly, most of these bills only prohibit the participation of the male-born in women's sports. In fact, we do not hear of any female-born athletes qualifying for male competition in strength sports.

These laws, known as "Save Women's Sports Bill" or "Save Girl's Sports Bill". specifically concern school sports, in a context in which the excellence in sport guarantees scholarships: males in women's sports therefore not only steal trophies, but literally the future of girls.

Before signing, Governor Reynolds gave the floor to the young athlete Ainsley Erzen to talk about the need for the bill. Ainsley Erzen, a student at Carlisle High School and 800 metre runner-up, wrote a letter in February about the need for the bill. open letter to the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union to demand that the criterion for participating in girls' sports should continue to be sex, not gender identity.

"There are not enough words to describe how much this law means to me and to all other female athletes," Erzen said. "Over the past month, I have experienced first-hand how much people hate the truth and the people who tell it."

"Women deserve the same opportunities as men to develop their talents and strive for excellence," Reynolds said in his closing remarks before sitting down to sign the bill. Here the video original.

Meanwhile also Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has publicly supported the laws being discussed in the national parliament that would allow sports organisations to Banning transgender men from competing in women's sports.

Morrison described Liberal Senator Claire Chandler's proposed bill as a 'women's sports saver. The text arrived in parliament earlier this month and the prime minister commented on it as a "formidable" tool to safeguard sport and women's activities in the country. 

A few months after the elections of the next 21 May Morrison has made it crystal clear to journalists in recent days that he is in favour and thinks the proposal is to be encouraged. The draft law intends to "ensure that all sports bodies are not restricted in their ability to organise competitions and events especially because of the threat of complaints of discrimination based on sex'.

"The primary political intent of the bill," he reiterated, "is to recognise that gender categorisation is a necessary and important mechanism to ensure women's sports participation and competitive opportunities".. The aim is to ensure that women's sport is protected and encouraged and that a male person does not have the right to request inclusion in a women's competition on the basis of gender identity.

Recent research in Australia has also shown that the 75% of Australians agrees with legal protections for girls' sport against transgender participation. The Canberra TimesInstead, he argued that the government is ignoring 'human rights' in an attempt to 'gain the votes of transphobes'.

Nevertheless, the Liberal Party of Australia, as its leader and Premier Morrison has already demonstrated, has found the courage to legislate on this issue and stand on the side of women and girls who wish to compete fairly and use the locker rooms without the presence or even abuse of males.

SPAIN: SOCIALISTS AGAINST THE TRANS LEY
Unlike their Italian counterparts from the PD and the left who stand for free gender identity, the Spanish progressives break with the PSOE's transactivist policies in defence of women and children. In their manifesto the excellent arguments against what, if passed, could be the worst transactivist law in the world
Breaking with its party, the PSOE, and sending a signal to the women of the European left, who are generally aligned in defence of transactivist diktatism, the Federación de Mujeres Progresistas launches a courageous manifesto against the Trans Law wanted by the governing majority in Spain (PSOE and Podemos) and being approved by an emergency procedure, without an effective parliamentary debate or a wide public discussion. The initiative also comes in response to the clamorous break between historical Spanish feminism -united in the Contraborrado cartel- [...].

Perhaps gender identity does not exist
If it is the biologist Anna Fausto-Sterling, the first to speak about it in the 1990s, the inspiration of Judith Butler and the founder of gender theory, who is in doubt, then perhaps we are at a clamorous and definitive turning point. Stop trans laws before it is too late!
If Judith Butler is The Queen of Gender, Anna Fausto-Sterling is its goddess: zoologist, biologist and lecturer in gender studies -now at Brown University- starting from the rare genetic condition of intersexuality in the early 1990s, she was the first to attack the concept of sexual binaryity, arguing that sexuality is a spectrum and that at least five sexes can be identified ('come on, it wasn't a theory, I was being ironic, it was just a provocation' she later said. But in vain). [...]

Trans-Europe: Ireland, UK, Spain, gender laws high on political agendas
While the new British Prime Minister Liz Truss works to block gender self-certification in Scotland, the Iberian government prevents the parliamentary debate on the Ley Trans, which allows sex change even for 12 year olds, to go for approval in a hurry: that is why Spanish feminists break with the left and open dialogue with the Popular Party. Meanwhile in Ireland a professor is arrested for refusing to use fluid language
A teacher at an Irish Christian school, Enoch Burke, was suspended and then arrested for refusing to name a transgender student with a neuter pronoun. Meanwhile, new British PM Liz Truss is reportedly trying to block Scotland's plans to allow self-identification for transgender (self-id) people and has asked lawyers for advice on how to 'pause or prevent' the reforms. Truss, head of the equalities brief as well as a former foreign minister, was instrumental in ruling out [...]

Elizabeth, the last matriarch
The missing queen wielded her power so skilfully that it was invisible. A profound influence that never backfired. Wisdom, an iron sense of duty, pragmatism, emotional control and no narcissism: these are the traits of sovereignty that make her a model of female authority
Gaby Hinsliff for The Guardian Stop all watches. Unplug the phone. For once, the opening lines of WH Auden's poem, Funeral Blues, seem appropriate to the moment. Like it or not, much of public life will come to a halt in the days of mourning as broadcasters suspend their programmes and a state funeral is prepared. However long it may have been predicted, the death of the longest reigning monarch in British history is a moment [...]

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 [...]
