Trans-Europe: Ireland, UK, Spain, gender laws high on political agendas

While the new British Prime Minister Liz Truss works to block gender self-certification in Scotland, the Iberian government prevents the parliamentary debate on the Ley Trans, which allows sex change even for 12 year olds, to go for approval in a hurry: that is why Spanish feminists break with the left and open dialogue with the Popular Party. Meanwhile in Ireland a professor is arrested for refusing to use fluid language

A teacher at an Irish Christian school, Enoch Burkehas been suspended and then arrested for refusing to name a transgender student with a neutral pronoun.

The arrest of Professor Enoch Burke

Meanwhile the new British PM Liz Truss is reportedly trying to block Scotland's plans to allow self-identification for transgender (self-id) people and would ask lawyers for advice on how to 'pause or prevent' the reforms.

Truss, head of the equality brief as well as a former foreign minister, was instrumental in ruling out self-identification in England maintaining the need for medical checks to acquire a gender recognition certificate (GRC). In Scotland, the Gender Recognition Act (GRA) would instead eliminate the need for a medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria.

Truss is 'concerned' that trans people in other parts of the UK will travel to Scotland to obtain a GRC. Activists LGBT have asked the Scottish government to be 'bolder' in its reforms which enjoy the support of four out of five of the main parties in the Scottish Parliament (excluding the Tory ).

An informant stated: "Truss asked the legal teams to find ways to 'pause or prevent' the Scotland Gender Recognition Act Bill. I would not be surprised if Truss successfully stopped him. Truss would be "furious at what this plan could do to women's rights in the rest of the UK, but is also concerned about Scotland. This involves her seeking legal advice on the potential impact of the Scottish law on the rights of residents in the rest of the UK'.

Finally, the Spain. The Congress Committee agreed to approve the so-called Ley Trans under urgent procedurethus halving the time and effectively eliminating the parliamentary debate. Promoted by the Minister of Equality Irene Montero , the law could be approved within this month.

The project enables the sex change at the registry office without medical or psychological expertise: from the age of 12 with judicial authorisationfrom the age of 14, with parental care; and from the age of 16 independently. In their reports, both the Council of State and the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) defended the necessity of judicial intervention for all children.

Spanish feminism opposes the norm, strongly supported by the left-wing government (Psoe + Podemos) because it includes 'gender self-determination' that could undo women's achievements. And together with many experts he warns of the health hazards for minors, that could be subjected to treatments that explicitly appear as 'not recommended' for them in the file of the Spanish Medicines and Health Products Agency (AEMPS).

The law, issued last June by the Council of Ministers would allow the use of drugs used to suppress puberty: agonists of GnRH (gonadotropin-releasing hormone) . Its analogues - triptorelin e leuprorelin - are strongly discouraged by AEMPS why 'safety and efficacy in paediatric patients have not been established' and thus " use in children or adolescents is not recommended until data on efficacy and safety are available" . 

Long-term use in the paediatric population is indeed experimental and the exact consequences are unknown. L' Alliance against the erasure of women (Contraborrado) presented a pioneering report on this issue. The platform that brings together thousands of Spanish feminists referred to a study published by Lesbians UnitedUS lesbian organisation that proved that drugs that block the development of puberty, necessary for the transition have very negative consequences on the physiology of minors.

Among the problems noted were those related to 'to the skeleton, cardiovascular system, thyroid, brain, genitals, reproductive system, digestive system, urinary tract, muscles, eyes and immune system'. As if this were not enough, GnRH agonists " can be detrimental to mental health and increase the risk of suicide ".

In June 2022 the FDA (the US pharmaceutical agency) had received more than  60,400 reports of adverse effects to the use of common GnRH agonists, including almost 8,000 deaths . 

Contraborrado feminists demanded that the text of the Ley Trans be withdrawn for open a debate that allows society to know the practical consequences for children and women's rights. The President of the People's Party, Alberto Núñez Feijóo , wanted to listenand has announced that he will repeal the rule as soon as he is in government.

A new AGEDO?
The historic Parents of Homosexuals Association has worked extensively for the acceptance and non-discrimination of gays and lesbians and today dedicates many of its initiatives to children with gender dysphoria. With an essentially affirmative approach, that is, supportive of transition. In a recent webinar it was said perhaps one should break off relations with family members who object and that reasoning about the effects of puberty blockers is off topic. To mention just a few of the more surprising statements
AGEDO (Associazione Genitori Di Omosessuali - Association of Parents of Homosexuals) was an important organisation set up in 1993 on the initiative of Paola Dall'Orto, founder and president until 2007 and awarded the title of Cavaliere al merito della Repubblica in 2009 for her work: 'The aim,' she explained, 'was to help those parents who found themselves in the same situation as us: in a state of discomfort, often despair, and almost always ignorant about the subject [...] We thought we could help these parents to know what they were not [...].

The 'milk' of men
The English National Health Service ensures that the milk produced by a male body -stimulated with ad hoc drug therapy- is as good for the newborn as that of its mother, who is wiped out. Minimising the risks to the child's health largely offset by the ideological and symbolic benefits. It is the transhuman, my beauties!
Men's 'milk' is a perfect example of what we call transhuman. Women's milk, on the other hand, is human, all too human, it is the perfect model of the enduring human, and therefore natural breastfeeding should be degraded, mocked, stigmatised as something to be ashamed of and kept hidden. In fact, it is even a useless and unethical act. On the contrary, promoting and magnifying male 'breastfeeding' shows plastically the way forward. According to the prestigious journal Pediatrics, organ of the American Academy of Pediatrics, it is 'risky' to define [...]

How to convince progressives to give up gender
Terrified of transactivists and worried about sounding 'right-wing', left-wingers support the transition of minors even in the absence of studies showing that 'affirmative therapy' works and promotes the well-being of gender non-conforming girls and boys. "But everyone has a right to evidence-based medicine," argue some liberals determined to "break the spell". And they start DIAG -Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender- to convince democrats in the US and around the world that continuing on this path is wrong and dangerous. For children and for the left. An article by Bernard Lane
A new movement of US Democrats wants to find out how to break the spell of gender ideology and bring the party back to the liberal values of science and reason. Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender (DIAG) launched a project yesterday on X Space (Twitter) to commission research on how to more effectively reach out to left-wing voters who believe that science is now in favour of 'gender-affirming' medicalisation of gender non-conforming youth. "The only way to end this [...]

New York Times: Strong doubts about hormones for children with gender dysphoria
The world's leading woke newspaper has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, starting with the indecent treatment of JK Rowling. Today the paper changes course and in a very long article criticises the 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers, hormones and surgery) for trans minors, giving a voice to some hitherto censored and ostracised detransitioners. Because by now even many Democratic voters have strong doubts. And there is a risk of losing many readers: "get woke, go broke".
For years, the New York Times has been the world's leading woke newspaper and has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, jubilating critical voices. The treatment of JK Rowling is exemplary. In 2022 a very violent subscription campaign invited people to imagine Harry Potter without its creator: the ultimate in cancel culture (see here) A misogynistic and aggressive gesture - the initiative turned out to be a boomerang and many female subscribers threatened to cancel -. A few months ago The Daily published [...].

Men IntintA and other wonders
The health of 'Marco', a trans FtM who is five months pregnant with testosterone, and that of her baby are the least of the problems. What matters to the liberal press talking about an 'anthropological revolution' is whether 'Marco' is to be called mother or father. But only a woman can give birth even if at the registry office her name is male. In this nothing has changed since the dawn of time. In the meantime, the trans front is losing ground: in one year, the number of members of WPATH, the largest transgender health organisation, has fallen by 60 per cent.
La Repubblica online headlines with a triple somersault about the 'young man who got pregnant': pregnant is not dared even at the transphilic GEDI group. The story is that of 'Marco', a girl undergoing testosterone therapy to look more like a man: beard, graver voice -not to 'become male' because sex cannot be changed and every single cell will remain damned XX-. 'Marco' had retained his uterus and ovaries and following a hetero sexual relationship (a [...]

Child rapists: shock report in UK
In Great Britain, 18 rapes a day are committed by minors on their peers: in 2022 these cases numbered 15,000, almost always by very young males. A British police report shows how free access to violent pornography online is normalising criminal sexual behaviour in England and all other Western countries
For years, we have been reporting on the psychological and material damage produced on an entire generation by free access to violent online pornography, consumed by boys and girls from the age of 7 but also much earlier: gang rapes committed by minors are just the tip of the iceberg of this dramatic phenomenon, which has now been analysed and quantified by a study by the British police. On this topic you can find previous articles here, here, here and here. We were almost only [...]
