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.

Holland: if you block the development of girls and boys you push them to become trans
The protocol - pausing puberty to allow minors to 'choose' their sex - they invented. But even the Dutch now admit that in 9 out of 10 cases blockers no longer give time to 'decide' but are the start of the transition. A self-fulfilling prophecy. And that the effects of these drugs are by no means reversible
Amsterdam University Clinic UMC, a pioneer in the use of puberty blockers, has admitted that children taking these drugs may find themselves locked into increased medicalisation. The admission comes following the publication earlier this month of a new retrospective study examining 20 years of hormonal interventions known as the 'Dutch protocol', conducted on 1,766 children and adolescents between 1972 and 2018 at the famed Amsterdam clinic and published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine. But [...]

GenerAzioneD, Italian association of parents of minors who define themselves as 'trans', is founded
A guidance and information site to support and accompany mothers and fathers going through this complex experience: testimonies, interviews, and links to contribute to an in-depth debate that today does not find space in the mainstream media
The cultural, apolitical, non-denominational and non-profit association GenerAzioneD has been established. The association's primary aim is to inform about the problems of gender dysphoria/incongruence in children, adolescents and young adults. Through the dissemination of testimonies, news, national and international articles in translation and the promotion of opportunities for discussion, GenerAzioneD aims to foster the transparency necessary to ensure the best possible care for those affected. GenerAzioneD was in fact born from the meeting of some parents who shared the experience of having children [...]

Transgender' children: it's social contagion. Even the largest trans association admits it
Tik Tok, Youtube and others: the president of WPATH, the world association for trans health, forced to admit that influencers play a large part in the epidemic of transitions among minors, a phenomenon denied by Western progressives who brand every alarm as transphobia. But they do not stop pushing for medicalisation and early surgery
The Honourable Alessandro Zan, first signatory of the infamous bill on gender identity, which ended up in the knighthouse, had denied the dizzying increase in cases of transition of girls and boys, calling the news a 'dangerous statement'. In 2021 there were already numerous statistics indicating the extent of the problem, but apparently Zan was not aware of it - which is unacceptable - or pretended not to know, or more likely ideologically believed that the mere fact of posing the question should be considered proof [...].

Sex and gender: JK Rowling's essay
In her text, the writer explains in detail the reasons why she felt the need to address the trans issue, defying the violence of activists. A manifesto-writer for gender critical feminism translated into Italian by Alessandra Asteriti
Attacking JK Rowling can now also be a business. The latest initiative is that of a young Canadian imbecile art book creator who has decided to de-rowling Harry Potter by publishing a special edition of the saga on the cover of which the author's name disappears: $170 per copy for a despicable abuse of power. Let him keep all the copies in stock. Back to the serious stuff: in June 2020 JK Rowling published an essay on her website detailing her position [...].

The debate on puberty blockers also opens in Italy - finally!
Breaking the silence is the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, which is calling for an open scientific debate on these treatments, which it defines as 'experimental', not supported by adequate studies and at great ethical risk because they predetermine the fate of girls and boys
Much later than in the Great North of Europe, Great Britain, Australia, and some US states - which have abruptly put the brakes on the use of puberty blockers as a 'therapy' for girls and boys with gender non-conforming behaviour - Italy too is finally breaking its silence with a letter addressed to the government by the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, which calls for caution and the opening of a public scientific discussion. Below we reproduce interviews conducted by Marina Terragni for Il Foglio and [...].

Italian psychoanalysts: stop puberty blockers
The Italian Psychoanalytic Society criticises puberty blockers for children: dangerous and experimental treatment. And joins gender critical feminists and parents in calling for scientific data and a public debate on the best treatment for children suffering from gender dysphoria
For years we gender critical feminists have been fighting against the scandal of the medicalisation of children in the name of gender identity. And for years we have been branded as fascists, reactionaries, bigots. Today at last an accredited Italian scientific society, the Italian Psychoanalytic Society (SPI), is taking a stand, joining us in raising a cry of alarm: the use of puberty blockers is an experimental treatment that has no solid scientific basis, and causes serious side effects. Above all, in most cases dysphoria [...]
