For your information, here is the entire text of the so-called Ley Trans, which is currently being discussed in Spain.with a rift also in the government majorityon the one hand the proponents of Podemos, led by the Minister of Igualdad Irene Montero and deaf to every objection, on the other hand the Psoe opposing noting many critical issues. Together with the text of the proposed law we publish the timely and reasoned objections of the Contra Borrado feminists (almost 150 associations tenaciously opposing it) and their counter-proposal.

The texts are too long to be sent in translation, but are also easily understandable for those interested in following the issue in detail.

In summary: current Spanish law stipulates that changing one's gender identity on an identity document requires at least two years of hormone treatment and a medical or psychological diagnosis certifying so-called 'gender dysphoria' (law 164/82 regulating this issue in Italy, updated by subsequent rulings, provides for a similar path).

The new Spanish bill provides for self-determination (self-id) of one's gender identity over the age of 16 without the need for certificates attesting to gender dysphoria or the need for "changes in the person's appearance or body functions through medical, surgical or other procedures". The draft law provides for "the free declaration of the person concerned is sufficient"It also recognises non-binary identities, admitting that people who do not identify themselves as a man or a woman are not allowed to identify themselves as a man or a woman. may also not indicate their gender on their identity card.

The new law also allows access to assisted reproductive treatment for 'trans people with gestational capacity'.It also provides for the possibility of using cryopreservation techniques for sperm or reproductive cells of people undergoing hormone treatment.

Sanchez's Psoe contested the bill stating that "the so-called right to free determination of gender identity or right to gender self-determination lacks legal rationality".

At the bottom of the two Spanish documents - Podemos' bill and Contra Borrado's opposition - you will also find the Italian bill of the same tenor proposed by the Trans Identity Movement. 

La Zan law against homobi-transphobia currently only approved in the House is the antechamber to an Italian trans law, keeping the concept of free gender identity at the centre.

Finally, there is the very important fact that in the UK, the home of transactivism, self-id has been definitively rejected by the government. and was free gender identity propaganda stopped in schoolsAt self-id, according to a survey published by The Times96% of the British people oppose it. There is no reason to think that Spaniards and Italians view it more favourably. 

So Spain, and eventually Italy, risk importing a product that has already expired and has been rejected by its creator..

'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 [...]

Feminism and the Right
In response to Julie Bindel, who considers the wall erected by the transactivist left but also the risks of an alliance with the right: in Italy, the historical novelty -a right-wing woman premier, Giorgia Meloni- further complicates the picture. What to do then? What is happening in Spain over the horrible Ley Trans perhaps points to a good way forward for everyone
Julie Bindel and Harvey Jeni take the bull by the horns: given that for too long there has been no possibility of dialogue with the left, can radical and gender-critical feminism look to the right without taking risks? This is a theme that we in Italy are well aware of and that agitated the entire election campaign that ended with the landslide victory of a right-wing woman, Giorgia Meloni, who has never declared herself a feminist. The fact that today the right in Italy is [...]

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). [...]
