While we read everywhere that TikTok has been the most downloaded app -and more profitable- by 2021 worldwide, the Daily Mail publishes an article on the role of the Chinese social network in the increase of girls saying they feel 'trans' in English schools.

According to the analysis of The Mail on Sunday videos with the hashtag #Trans have been viewed more than 26 billion times. Mostly material posted by very young people influencer "transgender' who give advice on how to get surgery and hormones from the opposite sex, presenting them as a good thing. E the first piece of advice is often: 'Don't involve your parents'.

Early 2021 TikTok signed a contract with Stonewall, controversial LGBTQ organisation abandoned by the UK government and major corporations, including the BBC, following accusations of not acting in the public interest (see here).

TikTok is known as 'the youngest social': according to estimates provided by TikTok itself, 66% of users are under 30 years old and most are in the 16-24 age group. Moreover, less than 5% of content creators are over 35 years old (sources here). Indeed, this social is recommended as the most suitable to companies looking to connect with an audience of teenagers or those under 30.

Transizione di bambine-i: quanti vengono "convinti" su TikTok?
A video by FtoM influencer Jaison Jowett, "Heal with me after top surgery!" (mastectomy of healthy breasts to "feel like a man").

The Daily Mail quotes videos with captions such as: "Heal with me after top surgery!" (euphemism for the mastectomy of healthy breasts done solely to 'feel like men'). Another video shows the transformation from 'good little Christian girl' to 'gay atheist transsexual who loves tattoos and chaos'.

"It is no coincidence that the growth of TikTok corresponds exactly to the exponential growth of children with gender dysphoria.. These videos risk leading to a generation of children to believe that 'changing sex' is easy and is the answer to all their problems"says Kate Harris of LGB Alliance.

According to Stephanie Arai-Davies, who works with the detransitioner Keira Bell, TikTok 'is full of videos portraying the medical transition as cool and transgressive. Gender is seen as the new rebellion. These platforms that promote medical transition should be obliged to include a warning on such material'.

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 [...].

Italian psychoanalysts: stop puberty blockers
The Italian Psychoanalytic Society criticises puberty blockers for children: dangerous and experimental treatment. And joins gender critical feminists and parents in calling for scientific data and a public debate on the best treatment for children suffering from gender dysphoria
For years we gender critical feminists have been fighting against the scandal of the medicalisation of children in the name of gender identity. And for years we have been branded as fascists, reactionaries, bigots. Today at last an accredited Italian scientific society, the Italian Psychoanalytic Society (SPI), is taking a stand, joining us in raising a cry of alarm: the use of puberty blockers is an experimental treatment that has no solid scientific basis, and causes serious side effects. Above all, in most cases dysphoria [...]

UK: health service backs down on 'transgender maternity' services after midwives revolt
Fighting is needed: in Great Britain midwives and nurses are rebelling against the announced opening of courses and wards dedicated to the pregnancy and birth of 'trans and non-binary' people. And the NHS stops the initiative. Meanwhile, in the USA there is talk of uterus transplants between living people: donor women for the benefit of men who wish to have 'female physiological experiences'. The old patriarchal dream: to take the place of women. Today acted out by neo-patriarchs T
Fighting serves. The revolt of midwives and nurses has foiled the English National Health Service's (NHS) plan to organise dedicated 'transgender maternity' services. On 16 December, an advertisement had appeared to recruit staff to manage the training of 'trans and non-binary people giving birth' in 40 NHS maternity services, an announcement that provoked an immediate reaction from midwives. A group of around 300 nurses, midwives and psychologists wrote an open letter to Lizzie [...]

I thought my son -4 years old- was trans: I was wrong
Lesbian mother and 'true believer' of the queer cult accompanies and authorises her child to identify as female. Until she realises she was wrong because of ideology. Weeping over her mistake today, she has embarked on a path of 'healing' together with him who has returned to calling himself male. An enlightening testimony
I was a true believer.I was a social justice activist before the social justice movement took over the world. I was at the forefront of introducing the concept of intersectionality in progressive organisations and convincing people to share their pronouns. My friends and I felt like the "cool" ones, the vanguard of a revolutionary work that would change the world, that would achieve what people within the social justice movement call "liberation [...]
