Sweden, Karolinska Hospital admits: with puberty blockers we have damaged the health of children-i

Self-disclosure by Sweden's largest children's transition centre: in the case of 'Leo', a girl treated with blockers at the age of 11, now suffering from osteoporosis and other diseases, the drugs caused 'severe injuries'. And there are at least 12 other cases of young people irreparably damaged. When will Italy deal with this issue?

As we have already told you, Pioneering' Sweden - along with many other Western countries - has decided to put a sudden stop to hormone treatments for girls and boys with gender dysphoria. It is now Sweden's largest centre for these treatments, theKarolisnka Hospital, at admit to damaging the health of at least a dozen minors with puberty blockers. How long will we have to wait for the Italian Parliament to deal with this issue, saving the lives of 'gender non-conforming' girls and boys who are sent to these ruinous 'therapies'?

Sweden's Karolinska Hospital, which specialises in children's transitions, self-reported that it had damaged the health of 'Leo', a girl suffering from gender dysphoria, with its puberty-blocking hormone treatments.

Leo was only eleven years old when she was given puberty blockers. A little more than four years after starting the treatment, it was discovered that the girl had developed osteoporosis and vertebral changes and suffered from back and hip pain. At least twelve other children were harmed by hormone treatments prescribed by the Karolinska University Hospital and reported serious side effects.

Today Karolinska admits that Leo and the other children were exposed to the risk of 'serious injury and that there is a real risk of incorrect treatments. In its report, the hospital states that it did not routinely check Leo's bone density and that the family "had not received sufficient information and clear about known side effects of the treatment'.

It is also accepted that there are no sufficient studies to demonstrate whether hormone treatment is useful and safe for minors. Furthermore, the hospital writes, "it is clear that thehe diagnosis of gender dysphoria is not static'. and it happens that patients do not want to continue with transitional medication after receiving puberty blockers.

In the hospital's investigation, it is alleged that 'Leo' should never have undergone puberty blockade because account had to be taken of her psychological problems, her suicide attempts and the hesitations she herself had expressedfactors that have been ignored.

Holland: if you block the development of girls and boys you push them to become trans
The protocol - pausing puberty to allow minors to 'choose' their sex - they invented. But even the Dutch now admit that in 9 out of 10 cases blockers no longer give time to 'decide' but are the start of the transition. A self-fulfilling prophecy. And that the effects of these drugs are by no means reversible
Amsterdam University Clinic UMC, a pioneer in the use of puberty blockers, has admitted that children taking these drugs may find themselves locked into increased medicalisation. The admission comes following the publication earlier this month of a new retrospective study examining 20 years of hormonal interventions known as the 'Dutch protocol', conducted on 1,766 children and adolescents between 1972 and 2018 at the famed Amsterdam clinic and published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine. But [...]

GenerAzioneD, Italian association of parents of minors who define themselves as 'trans', is founded
A guidance and information site to support and accompany mothers and fathers going through this complex experience: testimonies, interviews, and links to contribute to an in-depth debate that today does not find space in the mainstream media
The cultural, apolitical, non-denominational and non-profit association GenerAzioneD has been established. The association's primary aim is to inform about the problems of gender dysphoria/incongruence in children, adolescents and young adults. Through the dissemination of testimonies, news, national and international articles in translation and the promotion of opportunities for discussion, GenerAzioneD aims to foster the transparency necessary to ensure the best possible care for those affected. GenerAzioneD was in fact born from the meeting of some parents who shared the experience of having children [...]

Transgender' children: it's social contagion. Even the largest trans association admits it
Tik Tok, Youtube and others: the president of WPATH, the world association for trans health, forced to admit that influencers play a large part in the epidemic of transitions among minors, a phenomenon denied by Western progressives who brand every alarm as transphobia. But they do not stop pushing for medicalisation and early surgery
The Honourable Alessandro Zan, first signatory of the infamous bill on gender identity, which ended up in the knighthouse, had denied the dizzying increase in cases of transition of girls and boys, calling the news a 'dangerous statement'. In 2021 there were already numerous statistics indicating the extent of the problem, but apparently Zan was not aware of it - which is unacceptable - or pretended not to know, or more likely ideologically believed that the mere fact of posing the question should be considered proof [...].

Sex and gender: JK Rowling's essay
In her text, the writer explains in detail the reasons why she felt the need to address the trans issue, defying the violence of activists. A manifesto-writer for gender critical feminism translated into Italian by Alessandra Asteriti
Attacking JK Rowling can now also be a business. The latest initiative is that of a young Canadian imbecile art book creator who has decided to de-rowling Harry Potter by publishing a special edition of the saga on the cover of which the author's name disappears: $170 per copy for a despicable abuse of power. Let him keep all the copies in stock. Back to the serious stuff: in June 2020 JK Rowling published an essay on her website detailing her position [...].

Femelliste, a gender critical 'sister' platform is born in France
Harassed, insulted, mocked, threatened: French feminists have collected and catalogued the attacks transactivists have suffered for years. And they have set up an information and training site against the dictatorship of transgender ideology
The name of the site is a play on words that cannot be translated into Italian. The site's creators inform that it has already been used by animal feminists such as Posie Parker, Nicole Roelens and the Boucherie Abolition collective. It would make one think of anti-specism, it is actually more and in some respects a little different. 'Femelle' in French means the female animal (for the human one, the same word as woman, femme, is used). Since they fight for sexual rights [...]

The debate on puberty blockers also opens in Italy - finally!
Breaking the silence is the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, which is calling for an open scientific debate on these treatments, which it defines as 'experimental', not supported by adequate studies and at great ethical risk because they predetermine the fate of girls and boys
Much later than in the Great North of Europe, Great Britain, Australia, and some US states - which have abruptly put the brakes on the use of puberty blockers as a 'therapy' for girls and boys with gender non-conforming behaviour - Italy too is finally breaking its silence with a letter addressed to the government by the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, which calls for caution and the opening of a public scientific discussion. Below we reproduce interviews conducted by Marina Terragni for Il Foglio and [...].
