Also In Spain, biopolitical issues have become major topics and are playing a decisive role in the electoral campaign.

In view of the general elections on 23 July there is already discussion of change the laws on gender identity, less than 6 months after the approval of the Ley Trans wanted by former minister Irene Montero of Podemos, almost extinct political formation at the last local elections.

The first to speak about it was the newly elected president of the Madrid region, Isabel Díaz Ayuso of the Popular Party (Spain's main centre-right party), which claimed to voler to reform the regional law on gender self-determination in his investiture speech. A move that rides on the general dissatisfaction with gender self-determination (self ID) i.e. the possibility of freely changing one's sex on documents with a simple self-declaration, without any medical diagnosis.

The infiltration of the ideology of gender identity into Spanish legislation had begun quietly, at the level of regional laws, and then culminated with theabsurd Ley Trans state that provides for free gender self-determination from the age of 14 (from 12 to 14 a judge's ruling is required) and the right to change one's name (social transition) from the age of 12.

Irene Montero's law also grants the possibility to change one's mind and return to one's sex of origin after six months, clause that could allow men to identify themselves as women in order to escape justice, particularly in cases of domestic violence. Furthermore, prohibits so-called 'conversion therapies'. -preventing therapists from helping especially minors with psychological therapies and instead pushing towards a hasty medicalisation.

Finally, the Ley Trans opens up access to medically assisted procreation to 'transsexuals, including single people', provides for the automatic registration of children of same-sex couples without going through adoption and deletes the word 'mother' and replaces it with 'pregnant spouse'.

A ideological law to the point of delirium cannot hold with a different majority, and the reform of a regional law such as that proposed by the governor of the Region of Madrid represents a first step towards a radical rethinking of the gender identity issue, which is likely to eventually lead to a repeal or reform of the national Trans Ley.

Next, an extensive excerpt from the investiture speech by Isabel Díaz Ayuso taken from El Diario.

Maria Celeste

The President of the Region of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, pledged this Wednesday during the investiture debate at reforming the regional trans law, commitment he made to Vox in the last parliamentary term and which he has now announced he will fulfil with his absolute majority. "No one will be left without their legitimate rights, but neither will social engineering be done at anyone's expense'. assured Ayuso during his investiture speech.

"We must continue to do effectively what the Madrid region has pioneered: protect transgender people. But always guaranteeing the quality of the legislation; the constitutionality of all articles of law; equal opportunities for women in sport and in all spheres of life; protection of minors; educational and academic freedom; legal certainty'. he listed. He continued 'and also the presumption of innocence, the freedom of the press and the non-criminalisation of the intervention of health workers'. (referring here to the punishability of therapists who undertake psychological courses with persons suffering from dysphoria, a sanction introduced by Ley Trans, ed)

Even America puts the brakes on hormones for 'trans' children
The first lawsuits are being filed in the USA by young people treated with puberty blockers and hormones who have seen their condition worsen. And the AAP -Association of American Paediatricians- announces the revision of its own guidelines, which to date have been favourable to these treatments. Meanwhile, research shows that so-called 'affirmative therapy' does not improve the situation of young people with dysphoria at all. On the contrary, they feel better when they discontinue it
Throughout the western world, the so-called gender affirmative therapy for minors (puberty blockers followed by cross-sex hormones and surgery) has long been the subject of heavy criticism by doctors and experts, even those who regret having prescribed it, who point out its dangerousness and ineffectiveness: some have said that in the future we will talk about it as one of the biggest scandals in the history of medicine, comparable to the use of lobotomy on 50,000 psychiatric patients in the middle of the century [...].

Israel 7 October: Appeal for recognition as mass feminicide
The women victims of the Hamas attack were not killed like all other civilians: they were exposed naked, raped, brutalised, humiliated, decapitated, their bodies burnt and torn to pieces. "We wanted to dirty them," say the terrorists. The violence against these women meets the definition of mass feminicide: from France a petition to international NGOs

13 November in The Hague against surrogacy
The Private International Law Conference is pushing for transnational recognition of gestation per se contracts with the intention of forcing national legislation to benefit biomarket profits. The Icams coalition against GPA organised a demonstration in defence of women's dignity and against the market in girls and children
The International Coalition to Abolish Surrogacy (ICASM) organised an international demonstration in front of the Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCCH) on 13 November to oppose the regulation of cross-border 'surrogacy'. Indeed, attempts are being made to impose international regulation of so-called 'surrogacy': as of 13 November, the HCCH will set up a working group with the task of drafting a convention to allow cross-border recognition of contracts. This is to meet the growing demand in the biomarket [...]

No more drugs for children with gender dysphoria!
For many years a pioneer of puberty blocker and hormone-based treatments for 'gender non-conforming' minors, Finnish psychiatrist Riittakerttu Kaltiala now denounces these 'therapies' as dangerous, useless and lacking in scientific evidence. And she calls on doctors around the world to find the courage to break the silence imposed by activist censorship and the media's rubber wall
In Italy there persists an obstinate silence on pharmacological treatments for minors with gender dysphoria (puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, 'gender reassignment' surgery) according to the protocol of so-called gender affirmative therapy. It is not possible to know how many minors have been treated or are undergoing treatment, in how many and which centres they are treated and with what 'success' (or failure) rates. While throughout the Western world the debate has been open for some time and in some countries [...]
