Femelliste, a gender critical 'sister' platform is born in France

Harassed, insulted, mocked, threatened: French feminists have collected and catalogued the attacks transactivists have suffered for years. And they have set up an information and training site against the dictatorship of transgender ideology

The name of the site is a play on words that cannot be translated into Italian. The creators of the site inform that it has already been used by animal feminists such as Posie Parker, Nicole Roelens and the collective Boucherie Abolition (Abolition of Butcher Shops). It may sound like anti-specism, but it is actually more and in some respects a little different. "Femelle' in French means the female of the animal (the same word as woman, femme, is used for the human one). As they fight for the sexual rights of women, the provocative underlining and exaltation of the 'animal' side intends to emphasise the sexual, concrete, visible and objective reality of being a woman. Of course, while fighting against transgender ideology, they 'recognise the suffering of dysphoric people and support trans people in their struggle against violence and discrimination'.


OUR FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION IS VERY EXPENSIVE

Harassment, insults, threats and cancellation cultures that we undergo form a sprawling system. For three years, we have been collecting and filing all the attacks that rain down on us.

Downloading, cataloguing and analysing the thousands of screens occupying our phones and computers has been very challenging.

Attacks and threats are proof that our fight is necessary and right for women's rights, but also for freedom of expression and pluralism of ideas. The various forms of censorship and disruption that we present testify to the fact that our positions - although not so new within feminism - are quite disturbing.

We are not the only ones facing assaults. Everywhere in the world, other like-minded women are branded as TERFs. This acronym - used as an insult - represents a new way of disqualifying women who oppose transgender ideology affirming biological reality.

In France, some associations and militants call for the exclusion of so-called 'TERFs' with the slogan 'TERFs out of our struggles'.

We are harassed, threatened, psychologically abused, sometimes fired... Nevertheless, trans activists, in deference to the strategy of reversing reality, accuse us of having blood on our hands and of being responsible for the murders of trans people.

This strategy of manipulation and psychological violence has a name: DARVO system - Deny, Attack and Reverse Victim and Offender (= denying, attacking and turning the victim into the aggressor). This is the same tactic used by perpetrators of domestic violence and sexist crimes.

Feminists was born from the compelling will to fight against harassment, violence and censorship towards women qualified as TERFs.

The authors then declare themselves "angry and tired of the prevailing hypocrisy. We are going through an absurd era where it is no longer clear and obvious what a woman is'. They denounce that 'woman' has become a feeling, a perception and no longer a biological reality.

They recall that in 2016 the French law states that any man self-declared to be a woman can be recognised as such on documents and vice versa. Woe betide if one dares to claim that trans females are men, whereas 'being male is a prerequisite to qualify as such'.

They denounce the transition 'from a universalist feminism to an Orwellian feminism' subservient to transgender ideology, where women no longer seem to be the central subject of feminism and identity claims take over from living together. Transgenderism proclaims gender as the only valid element to (self-)define oneself, denies the sexual reality of individuals and their sexual orientation. Feminists vigorously counteracts this drift.

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 [...]
