Two inmates became pregnant after having sex with a transgender prisoner in New Jersey's only women's prison, the correctional institution "Edna Mahan'.

This was stated at a press conference by the Head of External Relations of the State Department of Corrections.

It is not clear whether the inmates have had relations with the same trans-identified inmate and whether they intend to carry the pregnancy forward. Prison officials have long been in the eye of the storm over allegations of abuse, specified that the reports would be consensual and announced an internal investigation.

Edna Mahan houses 800 female prisoners and since last year 27 transgender prisoners, i.e. trans-identified men, many of whom have not had genital surgery.

Transfers from men's prisons began in July 2021, as part of a settlement following the lawsuit filed in 2019 by theAmerican Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and a trans-identified man who had served a short prison term in a men's prison.

In 2021, two inmates at Edna Mahan reported being harassed by transgender inmates and initiated legal action to request the revocation of the policy of housing detainees on the basis of their "identity of gender'.. The women also reported that transgender detainees were engaged in sexual activities with female prisoners.

The union representing the guards at the facility also issued a statement against the facility's decision to house transgender inmates: "We opposed this change in policy believing that it would be detrimental to the general population of inmates housed at Edna Mahan and would cause additional stress to our correctional officers assigned to this institution," the union's president told NJ.com.

Norwegian feminist faces 3 years in prison for saying a man cannot be a mother
Christine Ellington, WDI's Norway contact person, investigated by the police for hate crime against a certain Jentoft who says she is a 'lesbian'. And whom she denounced, with the support of Amnesty International. Today, calling oneself a woman is possible for everyone. Except for women
While Netflix is under transactivist attack for broadcasting actor Ricky Gervais' stand-up, which dared to make fun of 'women with penises', there is much less joking in Norway. Christina Ellington, a representative of WDI (Women's Declaration International) is being investigated by the police and faces 3 years in jail for tweeting that males cannot be lesbians and for saying on TV to a male Jentoft, who identifies as a lesbian woman: 'You are a man. You can't be [...]

US Congress promotes a Women's Bill of Rights inspired by feminist texts
To be able to call themselves women, not to be reduced to 'menstruators' or 'holes in the front', to have their own reserved spaces: the American Republicans take on the resistance of feminism against woke progressivism and propose a law of historic significance. Women's associations, from WoLF to WDI, approve. But dividing them remains the issue of abortion, with the Supreme Court ruling in the home stretch.
While the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), America's largest civil rights association, is campaigning to argue that barring male sex offenders from women's prisons is discriminatory and unconstitutional, on 19 May, a group of Republican representatives in the US Congress, first signatory Debbie Lesko, introduced a resolution to introduce a Women's Bill of Rights, in order to legally define what a 'woman' is, recognise that women and [...]

Milan introduces gender self-certification
All it will take is a 'solemn' declaration to be able to choose what sex you are -female, male or neither- without any medical acts, expert opinions or judgments, and to adopt the 'alias' identity in various municipal services, including electoral rolls. In fact self-id, a huge change introduced by a simple administrative act and without any public debate. But it is all to be assessed whether the law allows it
So in Milan, self-id was introduced: it means being able to decide whether you are male, female - or neither - in total freedom, without expert opinions, sentences, witnesses - as the national law provides for: nothing of the sort, a simple bureaucratic step and it's done. In Great Britain, after years of public debate, self-id was shelved: the overwhelming majority of the population was against it. In Milan, without any debate, as if citizenship did not exist, as if laws did not exist, and [...]

Right, left, human, transhuman
The issue of 'rights' -from gender identity to the uterus for rent- is not complementary or on the sidelines, but outlines the horizon towards which we move. But the post-human perspective pursued by progressives is not unique and inescapable. The alternative exists: a female-rooted civilisation
By re-submitting the Zan bill in the Senate with very little chance of it passing -when instead other solutions, such as the Scalfarotto bill, would have ensured a law against homobitransfobia- PD secretary Letta has repeatedly stressed that the issue of rights is decisive for his party. The theme of rights, however, is always placed as complementary, on the sidelines of issues considered far more relevant: the war, certainly, economic issues, but also simply the electoral law. In truth, most of the game [...].

Kathleen Stock: 5 tips to keep transactivist troublemakers quiet
The lecturer forced to resign for saying that biological sex exists explains how to deal with harassing transactivism: just like a mother dealing with a wayward child or rebellious teenager. An ironic guide to saving your life
Philosopher Kathleen Stock became known outside academic circles after she was forced to resign from her professorship at the University of Sussex with threats and defamation by transactivists for expressing critical views on gender identity (see here). While similar cases are happening all over the world, including Italy and Europe (see here and here), in Anglo-Saxon countries lecturers are organising themselves to fight against the censorship of gender-critical feminism. In the article we present Kathleen [...]

Abortion in the USA: something doesn't add up
A "little hand" brings out in advance a Supreme Court ruling that would make the termination of pregnancy illegal. To whose advantage and why? With what consequences for the midterm elections, in which Biden was expected to lose? And what has gender-critical feminism, which some liberal observers want to blame, got to do with it?
A real political bombshell, thrown just a few months before the midterm elections, is the draft ruling of the US Supreme Court, which has fortunately leaked, that would make abortion illegal in the United States, overturning the historic Roe v. Wade ruling that made it legal in 1973. In the meantime, it is a draft; the final ruling is expected in June. It is also a question of who's 'little hand' it came from, and why. It could have been any of the conservative justices (Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito who would [...]
