In a  letter  to the group 'Sex Matters Kishwer Falkner, chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), the UK's equal opportunities watchdog, announced that it had ended its relationship with Stonewall, the largest LGBT organisation.

"As a publicly funded organisation, we have to make sure that we make the best choices regarding our budget and we have recently reviewed all our conventions." said Falkner.

For many years Stonewall strongly influenced British public policy on equality and human rights, imposed his point of view on issues such as the use of spaces, bathrooms and changing rooms, the language to be used when talking about men and women, compulsory trans-inclusivitywith a lot of imposition of rainbow ribbons on public administration staff

"The programme Stonewall Diversity encourages its members to control the thoughts and words of employees to an unacceptable degree"said the Sex Matters co-founder Maya Forstater.

The news of the EHRC's exit from the Stonewall programme comes the same week that theUniversity of Essex published the Reindorf Review survey on non-platforming for two feminist academics. According to lawyer Akua Reindorf, the university has adopted policies that reflect "the law as Stonewall would prefer it to be, rather than the law as it is", creating a "culture of fear'.

Defending the right of gender-critical people to express their views, the president of the EHRC added that Courts must protect freedom of religion or opinion even in the case of 'highly contested beliefs'. Otherwise there would be a risk of "leaving people unprotected from discrimination and harassment, with a restriction of freedom of speech in the debates on transgender rights, the reform of the Gender Recognition Act and the definitions of 'woman' and 'man'".

Meanwhile in a article on The Times, entitled Stonewall should keep out of the war for trans rights Matthew Parris, one of the 14 founders of the organisation, argued that the reality he helped to establish was lost since gay rights were obtained, getting bogged down in an issue that does not concern her. Parris argues that in the last 30 years life for gays and lesbians has really changed, that society is no longer homophobic and there are no longer reasons to feel victimised. However, it may be that there is still a need to support the rights of homosexual people, and until last year Parris says he did so in Stonewall.

But today, he says, "Stonewall has lost its way. The sun we all thought we saw was lost behind clouds of anger, intolerance and partisanship. The organisation is embroiled in the trans issue, cornered in an extremist stance on a debate into which a charity formed to help gay men, lesbian women and bisexuals should never have inserted itself.... Now the charity that I helped to found has involved me in the attempt to deny free speech in a university?".

"There is something perverse"Parris continuesin linking gays to trans people. Gay men don't want to be women. We like being men. I doubt that being a lesbian means not wanting to be a woman. Our problems have nothing to do with identifying or changing our bodies: we know what we are and no one disputes that. Most gay men would strongly resist the suggestion that we are boys who want to be girls. I can't think of anything I'd like less. The only thing that connects gays and lesbians with trans people is empathy with anyone who is excluded, oppressed, marginalised or rejected.

 "Stonewall should have resisted"Parris continues. "Now he seems to have immersed himself in the judicial question of whether or not would-be transgender children can consent to chemical or surgical intervention. But this is not something that gays, lesbians or bisexuals can speak about with more authority than any other citizen. I repeat: has nothing to do with us....

Perhaps the truth is that, after the success of our great equality campaign, Stonewall was left with an admirable staff, CEO and fundraising team and, subconsciously, desidered another great cause worth mentioning. Well, sometimes a big army that has only small battles to fight would do better to scale down. I know that many gay men are embarrassed by Stonewall and I see the paradox that some of its activities are actually damaging the position of the gay community. We do not want to be associated with sorties in trans wars. We want to feel proud, not wounded, not victims. Trans people need a support group. But this is their thing. Gays shouldn't colonize their issues. O gods, how did we get here?".

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 [...]

New Hampshire: No more 'sex change' surgery on minors
The US state has passed a bill banning surgeons from performing operations on under-18 year olds such as the removal of ovaries and breasts for females and penises and testicles for males. The bill states that these operations violate the patient's 'informed consent' and points out that studies have not shown a decrease in the suicide risk of minors after the operations. On the contrary: the danger increases
New Hampshire is preparing to ban under-18s from undergoing sex-change operations. Last Thursday, the New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a bill to this effect, also with the help of some Democratic members. House Bill 619 prohibits doctors from performing 'any genital gender reassignment surgery', i.e. the removal of the uterus, ovaries and breasts in the case of women; testicles and penis for men, to anyone in the [...]
