'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.

UK: gender identity will no longer be discussed at school
A new crackdown by the Sunak government after the Cass report, which also warns of the risks of social transition of minors, the so-called 'alias identity' that has already been adopted by many Italian schools: in the classroom, it will no longer be taught that one can change sex and sex education will be calibrated according to age. And never without parental consent
After years and years of transactivists from associations such as Stonewall and Mermaids making the rounds with their sex education courses in English schools of all levels, Rishi Sunak's government announced today with Education Minister Gillian Keegan new mandatory guidelines for schoolchildren and students on these issues. Classrooms will no longer teach that you can change your gender identity, as has been the case until now [...]

From Gaza to western delivery rooms, Judith Butler sees fascists everywhere
Fascists, of course, we gender-critical feminists too, 'allies of the right and the Vatican'. The Californian intellectual, renouncing all philosophical subtlety, compiles a political agenda that coincides with the platform of the university students in struggle. And he calls for an alliance between trans people, antifa, the pro-Pal movement, the homeless, black people, migrants and even women - understood as one of many minorities - to build 'a radical democracy inspired by the ideals of socialism'. An account of the Bologna leg of his triumphant European tour
Perhaps today one could speak of the 'Butler Agenda': its platform coincides perfectly with the platform of struggle of the-students throughout the West, with little certainty as to whether the chicken or the egg was born first. Certainly Judith Butler is to all intents and purposes the mother of Gender Theory to which these student(s) (a minority anyway) enthusiastically adhere; in turn these student(s) with their mobilisations are a source of inspiration for Butler, their platforms are also a [...]

Trans surgery increases suicide risk
A very recent study of 90 million patients shows that trans-operated people run a 'significantly higher risk of suicide, death, self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder' and require psychiatric support. Thus, the completion of the long and arduous transition with 'affirmative' surgery does not ensure the achievement of the hoped-for well-being
"Gender affirmation surgery is associated with a significantly higher risk of suicide, death, suicide/self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder than control groups in this real-world database. Since suicide is one of the most common causes of death among adolescents and middle-aged individuals, it is clear that we must work to prevent these unfortunate outcomes. This further reinforces the need for comprehensive psychiatric care in the years following surgery for [...]

Letter to Rishi Sunak: we need a public enquiry into the influence of transgender ideology
One hundred and thirty British MPs, doctors, psychiatrists, academics and detransitioners - among them JK Rowling - have written a letter to the Prime Minister calling on him to examine the 'pervasive influence' of transgender ideology in schools and the National Health Service and to ascertain responsibility for the harm done to thousands of girls and boys
"Rishi, if you read this petition please do the right thing and urgently initiate a public enquiry. The welfare of our children depends on it." Writing this is psychotherapist James Esses, coordinator of the Biological Reality Statement and one of the signatories to an appeal to the British Prime Minister after the major scandal of the treatment of 'confused and vulnerable' children by medical professionals, made evident by Hilary Cass's report. Among the first signatories is JK [...]

Gender is a battlefield
Joe Biden in the midst of campaigning replaces the word sex with gender identity. Germany and Sweden pass new trans laws allowing self-identification (self-id): German parents will be able to decide what sex their newborn child is regardless of whether it has a penis or a vagina. Meanwhile after England also Scotland bans puberty blockers for 'non-compliant' minors. And in Spain, one year after Ley Trans came into force, 'sex changes' have increased by 400 per cent. Even some 30 bearded soldiers have declared themselves women. The lobby pushes furiously and the chaos is unspeakable
While also in Scotland, after England, 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers followed by hormones and surgery) will no longer be prescribed to minors, a decision taken following the publication of the sensational Cass Review, in the United States President Biden - or rather, his firmly Obamian administration - in the midst of the presidential election campaign in November has effectively abolished Title IX of the Education Amendments in force since 1972. The amendment mandated that no one on the basis of sex could be excluded from [...]

Hormone-addicted children: an in vivo trial. Who will pay for it?
Hilary Cass, the British paediatrician who produced a monumental report on 'affirmative therapy' for minors does not mince words: those children 'were used as footballs'. There has never been any evidence that puberty blockers work, that they reduce suicide risk, that they increase patients' well-being: far from it. Will those who, in the absence of scientific certainty, have inflicted these treatments, who have even persecuted so many people of goodwill determined to expose the scandal in the name of truth, go unpunished? Keira Bell, the best known detransitioner, hopes for criminal consequences
Englishwoman Keira Bell, a former patient of the Tavistock Clinic in London, is certainly the most famous of the de-transitioners. After the publication of the Cass Review she tells The Times that she would like to see criminal proceedings started so that the children treated by the clinic with puberty blockers and hormones can finally get justice. Keira is now 27, judges the treatment she was subjected to -blockers, hormones, removal of breasts- "experimental at best, destructive at worst" and believes the professionals have [...]
