Spain: Ley Trans at the centre of the election campaign

The popular Isabel Dìaz Ayuso, newly elected president of the Madrid region, promises that an eventual centre-right government will change the highly contested Ley Trans approved by the Sanchez government, which introduced free gender identity. In defence of the Constitution and above all the rights of women and children as well as freedom of opinion. Decisive theme in view of the political elections next 23 July

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)

Hormone-addicted children: an in vivo trial. Who will pay for it?
Hilary Cass, the British paediatrician who produced a monumental report on 'affirmative therapy' for minors does not mince words: those children 'were used as footballs'. There has never been any evidence that puberty blockers work, that they reduce suicide risk, that they increase patients' well-being: far from it. Will those who, in the absence of scientific certainty, have inflicted these treatments, who have even persecuted so many people of goodwill determined to expose the scandal in the name of truth, go unpunished? Keira Bell, the best known detransitioner, hopes for criminal consequences
Englishwoman Keira Bell, a former patient of the Tavistock Clinic in London, is certainly the most famous of the de-transitioners. After the publication of the Cass Review she tells The Times that she would like to see criminal proceedings started so that the children treated by the clinic with puberty blockers and hormones can finally get justice. Keira is now 27, judges the treatment she was subjected to -blockers, hormones, removal of breasts- "experimental at best, destructive at worst" and believes the professionals have [...]

Locked in a fence. Like in Kabul
Open letter to Mayor Gualtieri and other competent authorities on the incredible scene of discrimination in the Centocelle district in Rome: women isolated like unclean animals for the end of Ramadan celebrations. Who gave permission for this unacceptable demonstration? And what steps will be taken against this misogynistic barbarity?
To the Mayor of Rome Roberto Gualtieri To the President of Municipality V Mauro Caliste To the Equal Opportunities Commission of the Municipality of Rome and p.c. To the Minister for Equal Opportunities and the Family Eugenia Roccella To the Minister of the Interior Matteo Piantedosi Dear Mayor, dear President, dear members of the Equal Opportunities Commission, we are dismayed and shocked by the way in which the Municipality V of the Capital - Piazza dei Mirti, Centocelle district, a few metres from the school named after Artemisia Gentileschi - hosted the celebrations [...].

UK. Cass report: no more affirmative therapy for children with gender-related problems
Pediatrician Hilary Cass' final report on child transitions comes out: offering affirmative therapy was a failure. There is no evidence on the effectiveness of puberty blockers, which should never be prescribed except in rare cases. Hormones of the opposite sex should not be given before the age of 18, and even between 18 and 25 caution should be exercised. A definitive watershed
The long-awaited final report of the Cass Review, an independent review chaired by paediatrician Hilary Cass on public health services for children and young people with 'gender dysphoria', came out this morning. Its final report and recommendations were presented to NHS England. Here are the highlights. The condemnation for affirmative therapy is final, and determined by the absolute lack of evidence that puberty blockers and opposite-sex hormones bring real benefits to children suffering from 'gender incongruence [...]

Hormone therapies on children: doctors' insurances start to run away
The risk of million-dollar claims by minors undergoing irreversible treatment who regret the 'affirmative therapy' is too high: this is why some insurance companies no longer feel like covering 'gender medicine' under their policies
Those who resist the market for the transition of gender non-conforming girls and boys know very well that almost always the turning point - as was the case in the UK with Keira Bell and in the US with Chloe Cole - is the lawsuit brought by a former child-or treated-or with blockers and hormones against the doctors who administered the 'therapy': the detransitioners' side is decisive. Then the game becomes money versus money: the money collected by the gender clinics versus the money they end up [...].

Also in Wyoming stop the transition of minors
It is the 24th US state to ban drug and surgical treatments on the bodies of gender non-conforming girls and boys. Doctors and practitioners who continue to prescribe affirmative therapy will lose their licences. Decisive in the passage of the law was the testimony - and legal action - of detransitioner Chloe Cole. A regulation banning trans-indoctrination in schools was also approved.
From next 1 July, hormone treatments and gender transition surgery of minors will be banned in Wyoming. With the passage of the law, Senate File 99, Wyoming will join 23 other US states, from Alabama to West Virginia, that have banned or severely restricted gender-affirming medicine on minors. Under the law, doctors, pharmacists and other health care providers who provide gender-affirming care could have their licences suspended or revoked. Opposed by Governor Mark Gordon, [...]

The UK has decided: no more puberty blockers for children with dysphoria. It is the ultimate turning point (in memory of Yarden Silveira, 1998-2021, killed by 'sex change')
Not only the stop at the Tavistock Clinic: no British centre for 'gender non-conforming' girls and boys will be able to prescribe puberty blockers any more. The approach will have to be solely psychological: a resounding turning point that will have knock-on effects all over the world, including Italy. One of the biggest scandals in the history of medicine is finally coming to an end: will someone pay for the thousands of irreversibly damaged minors? Recalling here one among them who lost his life because of the unscrupulousness of doctors and surgeons
The British National Health Service (NHS) announces that PUBERTY BLOCKERS WILL NO LONGER BE ADMINISTRATED TO MINORS WITH GENDER Dysphoria: this is huge and heart-warming news after years and years of fighting on the front line. So not only is the dedicated service of the Tavistock Clinic in London closing, but no centre for the treatment of minors with dysphoria will use puberty blockers any more. The decision, described as 'historic', will have knock-on effects worldwide, [...].
