We have told you several times about the iJK Rowling's commitment to women's rights in Scotlandwhere Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon is pushing for the passage of a law that would introduce a 'super self-ID' (see here), a very free gender identity.

Last year, Even before the discussion on the law, the Appointment of a transgender man, Mridul Wadhwa, as CEO of Edinburgh's leading anti-violence shelter, which would naturally also welcome men who 'identify as women' in what was originally intended to be a space only for women victims of rape and male violence.

JK Rowling had been one of the strongest voices in the protest, but had also immediately followed words with deeds, secretly starting work on a project that was announced just yesterday: Beira's Place, un all-women's anti-violence shelter in Edinburgh.

The shelter, financed entirely by JK Rowling, is run by women exclusively for women victims of male violence, and being totally private does not have to deal with the rules of the charity and can be administered in total freedom. JK Rowling also purchased the building where Beira's Place is located, in the centre of Edinburgh.

JK Rowling financed and designed a new women-only sexual violence support service, Beira's Place.

"I founded Beira's Place to provide what I believe is currently an unmet need for women in the Edinburgh area." JK Rowling stated. "As a survivor of sexual violence, I know how important it is to have women-centred care provided by other women when you are so vulnerable. Beira's Place will increase the capacity of services in the area and, I hope, enable more women to process and recover from their trauma".

Located in the heart of Edinburghis a service for women who have suffered male violence. Named after the Scottish goddess of winterRowling explained: 'Beira rules the dark part of the year and passes the baton to her sister, Bride, when summer returns. Beira represents female wisdom, power and regeneration. Hers is a strength that endures in difficult times, but her myth holds the promise that they will not last forever'.

The board of directors, of which Rowling is also a member, consists of experts who have always been committed to ending men's violence against women and girls. They include LGB rights activist Rhona Hotchkiss, former Scottish Labour leader Johann Lamont, physician Margaret McCartney and Susan Smith, director of the feminist group For Women Scotland. The CEO is Isabelle Kerr, a veteran of the movement Rape Crisis (see photo above).

Beira's Place is strictly reserved for women, as defined in Section 212 of the Equality Act, which states that a woman is a 'female person of any age'. Women aged 16 years and over living in the Edinburgh region (Lothians) who have experienced sexual violence or abuse at any time in their lives now have a free and confidential service at their disposal.

The service is financed exclusively by JK Rowling and was not structured as a charity (charity)which means that trans activists will not be able to petition the Charities Commission to shut it down [or to force the inclusion of men who claim to be women].

It is shocking that until the opening of Beira's Place there was only one women-only sex-based anti-violence shelter left in Edinburgh.

What until now was the main shelter for rape victims in Edinburgh, the Edinburgh's Rape Crisis Centre (ERCC), welcomes not only women, but also men who 'identify as women'. In May 2021, thehe transsexual Mridul Wadhwa was appointed its managing director, despite being told that the post was reserved for a woman. Three months after the appointment, in an interview Wadhwa had called 'bigoted people' the women rape victims who did not want to deal with men in the care service, suggesting that they "review their trauma".

But women are fighting back. Sarah Summers (fictional name), a rape victim who was denied access to a women-only support group, sued Survivors Network, she Brighton rape crisis service, which, like the ERRC, also welcomes men who identify as women.

"For women like me it is impossible to recover from the trauma of male sexual violence in the same space as men, even if they identify themselves as women,' Summers says. "Women-only rape shelters are the only place we can feel safe. Forcing us to deny reality confirms that our feelings don't matter and that our boundaries are irrelevant."

The vast majority of women think like Summers. A poll commissioned by the feminist group Women and Girls in Scotland it emerges that According to the majority of women (80.1%), 'female victims of male violence should have access to women-only support services and shelters'. Furthermore, the majority (71%) stated that they would not feel comfortable if the service also included trans-identified males.

A new AGEDO?
The historic Parents of Homosexuals Association has worked extensively for the acceptance and non-discrimination of gays and lesbians and today dedicates many of its initiatives to children with gender dysphoria. With an essentially affirmative approach, that is, supportive of transition. In a recent webinar it was said perhaps one should break off relations with family members who object and that reasoning about the effects of puberty blockers is off topic. To mention just a few of the more surprising statements
AGEDO (Associazione Genitori Di Omosessuali - Association of Parents of Homosexuals) was an important organisation set up in 1993 on the initiative of Paola Dall'Orto, founder and president until 2007 and awarded the title of Cavaliere al merito della Repubblica in 2009 for her work: 'The aim,' she explained, 'was to help those parents who found themselves in the same situation as us: in a state of discomfort, often despair, and almost always ignorant about the subject [...] We thought we could help these parents to know what they were not [...].

The 'milk' of men
The English National Health Service ensures that the milk produced by a male body -stimulated with ad hoc drug therapy- is as good for the newborn as that of its mother, who is wiped out. Minimising the risks to the child's health largely offset by the ideological and symbolic benefits. It is the transhuman, my beauties!
Men's 'milk' is a perfect example of what we call transhuman. Women's milk, on the other hand, is human, all too human, it is the perfect model of the enduring human, and therefore natural breastfeeding should be degraded, mocked, stigmatised as something to be ashamed of and kept hidden. In fact, it is even a useless and unethical act. On the contrary, promoting and magnifying male 'breastfeeding' shows plastically the way forward. According to the prestigious journal Pediatrics, organ of the American Academy of Pediatrics, it is 'risky' to define [...]

How to convince progressives to give up gender
Terrified of transactivists and worried about sounding 'right-wing', left-wingers support the transition of minors even in the absence of studies showing that 'affirmative therapy' works and promotes the well-being of gender non-conforming girls and boys. "But everyone has a right to evidence-based medicine," argue some liberals determined to "break the spell". And they start DIAG -Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender- to convince democrats in the US and around the world that continuing on this path is wrong and dangerous. For children and for the left. An article by Bernard Lane
A new movement of US Democrats wants to find out how to break the spell of gender ideology and bring the party back to the liberal values of science and reason. Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender (DIAG) launched a project yesterday on X Space (Twitter) to commission research on how to more effectively reach out to left-wing voters who believe that science is now in favour of 'gender-affirming' medicalisation of gender non-conforming youth. "The only way to end this [...]

New York Times: Strong doubts about hormones for children with gender dysphoria
The world's leading woke newspaper has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, starting with the indecent treatment of JK Rowling. Today the paper changes course and in a very long article criticises the 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers, hormones and surgery) for trans minors, giving a voice to some hitherto censored and ostracised detransitioners. Because by now even many Democratic voters have strong doubts. And there is a risk of losing many readers: "get woke, go broke".
For years, the New York Times has been the world's leading woke newspaper and has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, jubilating critical voices. The treatment of JK Rowling is exemplary. In 2022 a very violent subscription campaign invited people to imagine Harry Potter without its creator: the ultimate in cancel culture (see here) A misogynistic and aggressive gesture - the initiative turned out to be a boomerang and many female subscribers threatened to cancel -. A few months ago The Daily published [...].

Men IntintA and other wonders
The health of 'Marco', a trans FtM who is five months pregnant with testosterone, and that of her baby are the least of the problems. What matters to the liberal press talking about an 'anthropological revolution' is whether 'Marco' is to be called mother or father. But only a woman can give birth even if at the registry office her name is male. In this nothing has changed since the dawn of time. In the meantime, the trans front is losing ground: in one year, the number of members of WPATH, the largest transgender health organisation, has fallen by 60 per cent.
La Repubblica online headlines with a triple somersault about the 'young man who got pregnant': pregnant is not dared even at the transphilic GEDI group. The story is that of 'Marco', a girl undergoing testosterone therapy to look more like a man: beard, graver voice -not to 'become male' because sex cannot be changed and every single cell will remain damned XX-. 'Marco' had retained his uterus and ovaries and following a hetero sexual relationship (a [...]

Child rapists: shock report in UK
In Great Britain, 18 rapes a day are committed by minors on their peers: in 2022 these cases numbered 15,000, almost always by very young males. A British police report shows how free access to violent pornography online is normalising criminal sexual behaviour in England and all other Western countries
For years, we have been reporting on the psychological and material damage produced on an entire generation by free access to violent online pornography, consumed by boys and girls from the age of 7 but also much earlier: gang rapes committed by minors are just the tip of the iceberg of this dramatic phenomenon, which has now been analysed and quantified by a study by the British police. On this topic you can find previous articles here, here, here and here. We were almost only [...]
