For years, free thought has been under attack in academies throughout the western world.including Italy, with particular regard to the discussion on the topics related to sex and gender. The spread of cancel cultureof the tribalistic-identitarian postureof the safe space and the obsession with 'political correctness' are strangling freedom of expression and research almost everywhere, and are conspicuously helping to build a society terrorised and dumbed down by censorship and self-censorship. Let the teachers be silenced, threatened with loss of officeIt is a real handicap for everyone. Here we have already talked about the many teachers gender critical under attack, to the point of having to move escorted into university premises. Hundreds of people have already signed up for the Network for Freedom of Scientific Research founded a few weeks ago in Germany on the initiative of German researchers. The aim is to denounce the climate of intimidation which has been increasingly oppressing the academic world in recent years and to promote freedom of scientific research. Micromega here.

An example from these very hours:

The University of Edinburgh has produced an internal guide for staff with a list of prohibited phrases, as "all women hate their periods'. e "Everyone thinks they are the opposite sex from time to time.". In addition, professors should not place "undue emphasis on anatomical sex markers". These would be "microaggressions'. that 'deny or nullify the thoughts, feelings or lived reality of trans and non-binary people' and undermine their transition to different genders.

Several Russell Group universities are training lecturers on the "cisgender privilege"according to which people whose birth sex aligns with their gender identity enjoy the right to a fair trial. structural advantages in British society.

Newcastle University also explains to staff: "Being cisgender entails social privileges.. Imperial College and LSE remind lecturers to use their 'cis' and 'heterosexual' privileges to be trans-allied. Academics counter that an obsession with gender identity on campus risks 'moral blackmail' of students and less 'woke' inequalities. A 'monoculture' which is often "only interested in specific aspects of equality-diversity, while routinely downplaying or ignoring other aspects, such as the underrepresentation of white working-class children. This leads academics to hide or censor 'their point of view for fear of being ostracised'".

If staff witness misconduct, they should "disarming the microaggression, intervening and stopping or diverting" by affirming the university's standards of conduct and "educating the offender" teaching them to "recognise their own prejudices", recommends the Edinburgh guide. 

Lecturers are also invited to wear rainbow lanyards on campus "as a visible sign that trans and/or non-binary people are safe".and insert their pronouns in e-mail signatures.

The trans guide of universities such as Edinburgh, Warwick and Exeter refers to a "a 'cisnormative society', in which trans people are offended by the assumption that gender binarism is the norm (!)

Feminists have expressed concern that the trans leadership of many universities, influenced by pressure groups, promotes the disappearance of reserved spaces for women in favour of gender-neutral structuresand cause thegagging of teachers who see it differently.

Against the cancel culture the government is planning a new law under which academics could sue if they are silenced. 


La platform which we present here was created to break the isolation between gender critical teachers and to offer support, sharing and coordination. You can read many stories and, if you wish, share your own. It is increasingly urgent that the no-platformed in all categories -in particular teachers, journalists and publishing professionals, but the problem extends to many other sectors, starting with medicine. coordinate for a common strategy in defence of free speech and rights of women and girls.

Here is the appeal:

We are a group of university professors. We are concerned about the continued erosion of women's rights based on gender. in law, policy and practice, and how those - mainly women - who speak out about it are treated. We are concerned that a A culture of 'non-debate' on this issue damages academic freedom and prevents an open and critical approach to sex and gender theories. The inability to talk about rights and discrimination based on gender harms women and girls. 

We would like to hear the stories of gender-critical university staff (academic and professional services) and of students. What is involved in taking a critical stance on gender in higher education? What are your experiences when you speak or keep silent? We would like to know what happened to you, what you saw and how it made you feel. 

We want universities, policy makers and the general public to understand theThe effect that the current culture of 'non-debate' is having on those of us who work and study in higher education. We know the isolation that people face and we want this to be one of the most important factors in the process. space to collect stories about our experiences and concerns, and to realise that we are not alone. Help us break the silence.

Mail-bombing to Repubblica: Unacceptable misinformation on puberty blockers
In an unacceptable article -without any reference to scientific data- Michela Marzano says that puberty blockers would be 'temporary and reversible' and would protect against suicide, but this is disproved by numerous studies.
Text for a mail-bombing, to be sent to the editor Maurizio Molinari Dear Director Molinari, we read Michela Marzano's article, entitled 'Nobody touches gender identity', published in your newspaper on Sunday 5 February. And we cannot fail to note with dismay that the author tackles the very delicate issue of 'dysphoric' minors without any scientific reference, claiming among other things that 'the suspension' induced by drugs that block puberty 'is temporary and reversible', that recourse to such drugs 'allows [...].

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 [...].

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 site's creators inform that it has already been used by animal feminists such as Posie Parker, Nicole Roelens and the Boucherie Abolition collective. It would make one think of anti-specism, it is actually more and in some respects a little different. 'Femelle' in French means the female animal (for the human one, the same word as woman, femme, is used). Since they fight for sexual rights [...]
