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.

'Destroy women's rights': JK Rowling against the Scottish premier and her trans law
As in Spain, feminism in Scotland fights against a law wanted by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon introducing gender self-determination without any medical diagnosis and lowering the age for access to 16. And this time too, the Harry Potter author stands by women, girls and children
JK Rowling takes a photo of herself wearing a t-shirt that reads 'Nicola Sturgeon, destroyer of women's rights' to support women protesting in front of the Scottish Parliament against the controversial gender recognition reform bill wanted by Scotland's First Minister. Activists from For Women Scotland gathered in front of the Scottish Parliament this morning for a demonstration against the bill promoted by Sturgeon, which would make gender self-determination easier - we have [...]

The Iranians are fighting for us too
Women in Iran are oppressed, violated and killed precisely because of their bodies as women. And their revolt could free everyone and everyone. Is'the woke West of'gender identity and 'freedom of the veil' ready to understand and support this revolution that blows for us too? Woman, life, freedom
In the uncertain and ever-changing geopolitical order of our time, in the midst of a global political agenda that from right to left forgets women, betraying, albeit in different ways, female exclusivity and the richness of sexual difference, the struggle of Iranian women has something epic, something moving. The killing of Mahsa Amini shows how the issue of the 'veil as freedom' is the quintessence of intellectual dishonesty, of logical fallacy, of an age-old lie. To 22-year-old Mahsa, the desire to 'feel the [...]

US, gay couple sues: surrogacy is a 'right', must be paid for by health insurance
The two men's claim aims to have the fact that they do not have a womb recognised as a 'disability': an absurd, envious and revealing claim. If they win in court all over America insurance companies and employers would have to reimburse gestations for other for men
A gay couple filed a lawsuit in New York labour court demanding that their employer-provided insurance company pay all the costs of the surrogate uterus for them, in order to ensure 'equal access to fertility treatment'. For all intents and purposes, they are demanding that a gay male couple become a protected category under the law because they are both without a womb and without access to one. If they win the case, in all [...]

Girls removing their breasts
Transactivist propaganda invites girls uncomfortable with their female form to compress their breasts with special bands (binders), the first step towards the final mastectomy. The same misogynistic violence as the traditional 'breast ironing' practised in Africa. In the UK, the publicly funded charity Mermaids is under indictment for sending binders to teenage girls against parental advice.
Breast ironing is a horrible practice still in use in some regions of Africa, particularly in Cameroon. It involves the destruction of the breasts of adolescent girls by red-hot instruments -old irons, spatulas, stones or shells- and is generally practised by the adult women of the family. The purpose is to make the girls less attractive in order to save them from rape and early pregnancies that could tarnish the honour of the family group. The practice causes serious damage to the health of teenage girls, [...].

SPAIN: SOCIALISTS AGAINST THE TRANS LEY
Unlike their Italian counterparts from the PD and the left who stand for free gender identity, the Spanish progressives break with the PSOE's transactivist policies in defence of women and children. In their manifesto the excellent arguments against what, if passed, could be the worst transactivist law in the world
Breaking with its party, the PSOE, and sending a signal to the women of the European left, who are generally aligned in defence of transactivist diktatism, the Federación de Mujeres Progresistas launches a courageous manifesto against the Trans Law wanted by the governing majority in Spain (PSOE and Podemos) and being approved by an emergency procedure, without an effective parliamentary debate or a wide public discussion. The initiative also comes in response to the clamorous break between historical Spanish feminism -united in the Contraborrado cartel- [...].

Perhaps gender identity does not exist
If it is the biologist Anna Fausto-Sterling, the first to speak about it in the 1990s, the inspiration of Judith Butler and the founder of gender theory, who is in doubt, then perhaps we are at a clamorous and definitive turning point. Stop trans laws before it is too late!
If Judith Butler is The Queen of Gender, Anna Fausto-Sterling is its goddess: zoologist, biologist and lecturer in gender studies -now at Brown University- starting from the rare genetic condition of intersexuality in the early 1990s, she was the first to attack the concept of sexual binaryity, arguing that sexuality is a spectrum and that at least five sexes can be identified ('come on, it wasn't a theory, I was being ironic, it was just a provocation' she later said. But in vain). [...]
