Hormones for children: the world revolts

Arkansas, and soon Texas and Tennessee. Sweden, Finland, UK, Australia: the number of western countries abandoning drug treatment for 'gender non-conforming' children is growing. And the prestigious Lancet is calling for a reconsideration of these 'therapies' which continue to be prescribed in Italy. It's time to give battle

An article in the prestigious Lancet Child & Adolescent Health (see here) proposes greater caution in the use of puberty blockers on children diagnosed as gender dysphoric.

According to Lancet Child & Adolescent Health further research is needed to determine the best treatment of children who received this diagnosis, particularly for those in whom the disorder only manifested itself after puberty.

The genre is a highly politicised theme and any scientific article that poses a threat to mainstream narratives is generally withdrawn, subjected to a further round of peer review and correction, or more likely rejected. Significantly, therefore, this time Lancet published.

Arkansas was the first US state to ban the use of blockers for minorsand similar laws are being studied in Tennessee and in TexasScepticism about these drugs is growing around the world, and policymakers are starting to take notice. In 2020, theEnglish High Court established that children under 16 are unlikely to consent to treatment involving puberty blockers (judgment Keira Bell, currently under appeal). Sweden and Finland today returned to psychological interventions for children with gender dysphoria

Meanwhile thousands of American paediatricians have mobilised against puberty blockers, even promoting a case against the Biden administration, while in Australia some clinics require the approval of a court to proceed with hormone therapies on minors to avoid the risk of future legal action: the risk of losing money is an effective disincentive for transacting.

Also in Australia, the first clinic for the treatment of de-transitioners, The aim is to offer specialised care and supportive therapy to those who regret the transition they have undergone.

Again, in the UK: a mother, Sara Hertzaddressed to doctors aarticulate and reasoned letter entitled "Doctors, it's time. Primum, non nocere"against the transition of minors, while Sonia Appleby, head of child protection for Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust - a London-based clinic specialising in child transitions. won a case against the British health service and was compensated for the treatment she received from the administration after she had expressed her concern ".that some young children are actively encouraged to be transgender without effective monitoring of their situation"..

On the risk of abuse had already broken the silence the dean of Tavistock, the psychiatrist David Bell.

All over the West the wind is changing, but at the moment nothing is moving in Italy.

In our country, puberty blockers continue to be administered with a simple medical diagnosis and without the intervention of a court. And in recent days the news of a 16-year-old from Lucca authorised by the court to change sex at the civil register office, possibly even resorting to 'rectification' surgery.

An urgent reconnaissance on the number ofminors treated in Italy, currently unknown, a clarification on the protocols that are applied, in addition to careful verification of the grooming -grooming and indoctrination on gender identity- on the social networks most frequented by young people, such as Instagram and TikTok-.

The following should also be urgently addressed Italian Society of Paediatrics, the Italian Society of Endocrinology and the Order of Psychologists to urge them to take a stand on the basis of the established fact that the effects of puberty blockers are by no means reversible, as by tenacious propaganda, not to mention the possible iatrogenic pathologies induced by these drugs.

To finally arrive at a law which, as is now the case in many western states, severely limits or prohibits the use of hormone blockers for gender non-conforming minors, first of all by promoting freedom from stereotypes -this is the first battlefield against the child transition industry- and favouring - where there is suffering - psychotherapy.

Germany: paedophiles in celebration. Fewer criminal risks for possession of child pornography
With a change in the law, the Bundestag decreases the penalties for possessing and/or distributing pornographic images of girls and boys, which have been downgraded to misdemeanours. News enthusiastically welcomed by paedophile groups pushing to lower the age of sexual consent to 12
Free paedophilia is also part of the transhuman umbrella: to progressively, preferably quickly, break down even this limit, to admit and even encourage transhuman sex - after all, girls and boys are at the heart of transhuman policies. A legislative innovation approved by the Bundestag takes a step in this direction. Geneviève Gluck tells us about it The German parliament voted by a majority to remove a section of the penal code that made the possession of child pornography a criminal offence. Once in force [...]

Why Italy did not sign the EU declaration on LGBTIQ rights (it did sign another one though)
The declaration against homolesbobtransphobia signed in Europe by all the member states passed into silence. Great media clamour, on the other hand, over a second declaration not signed by Italy because it is strongly unbalanced on gender identity on the model of the Zan fu-ddl: here are all the critical points
A few days ago, on the occasion of the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) in Europe, the following resolution was passed unanimously - including Italy, therefore: 1498th Meeting of the Committee of Ministers (7 May 2024) - EU Statement ahead of the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia on 17 May 2007.05.2024 Press and information team of the Delegation to the COUNCIL OF EUROPE in StrasbourgI have the honour to speak on behalf of the European Union and its [...]

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 [...]
