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.

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 -.

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 [...]

New Hampshire: No more 'sex change' surgery on minors
The US state has passed a bill banning surgeons from performing operations on under-18 year olds such as the removal of ovaries and breasts for females and penises and testicles for males. The bill states that these operations violate the patient's 'informed consent' and points out that studies have not shown a decrease in the suicide risk of minors after the operations. On the contrary: the danger increases
New Hampshire is preparing to ban under-18s from undergoing sex-change operations. Last Thursday, the New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a bill to this effect, also with the help of some Democratic members. House Bill 619 prohibits doctors from performing 'any genital gender reassignment surgery', i.e. the removal of the uterus, ovaries and breasts in the case of women; testicles and penis for men, to anyone in the [...]

Puberty should perhaps be stopped at ALL: Transhuman drift of the World Health Organisation
In a veritable Christmas blitz, the WHO announces that it wants to draw up new gender-affirming guidelines and sets up a panel made up of three-quarters transactivists in favour of medicalising children. Preferably all of them, even those who do not suffer from dysphoria. Because choosing what sex you are must become a universal right. An international petition calls for a halt to the initiative
A few days before Christmas, the World Health Organisation (WHO) announced that it will develop new guidelines on the 'health of trans and gender diverse people', with a focus on access to hormones and surgery (what it calls 'gender-inclusive care.) ') and legal recognition of gender self-identification (self id). The WHO also announced that it has formed a group to develop the guidelines. This expert group includes many World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) apparatchiks, including [...]
