The news is sensational: the British National Health Service (NHS) has ordered the closure of the Tavistock & Portman gender clinic for failing to ensure the safety of young patientsmostly girls (full article here). The clinic has been accused by several parties of having hastily started many minors, most of them suffering from autism spectrum disorders, on hormones and 'transition' surgeries that have forever altered their bodies and their lives.

The decision comes immediately after the publication of some guidelines (here the full text) for the treatment of minors with gender dysphoria compiled by the paediatrician Hilary Cassat the helm of aindependent investigation commissioned by the British Health Minister Sajid Javid (we wrote about the affair here).

The Tavistock clinic, affiliated to the National Health Service, will be replaced by regional centres at existing children's hospitals, which will offer more 'holistic' care with 'strong links to mental health services' (i.e. with a prevalence of psychological therapies on pharmacological ones).

The Tavistock, the UK's leading gender clinic, had long been in the eye of the storm, particularly after the lawsuit filed and won by Keira Bell, pushed to take hormones at the age of 16 and now a figure-symbol of detransitioners (here its history, and the final verdict).

In the great Tavistock clinic malpractice scandal is also involved an Italian doctor, psychiatrist Domenico Di Ceglie, promoter of the so-called 'affirmative model' even for the very young, albeit amidst a thousand contradictions, as explained in this exposé.

The closure of Tavistock, world reference for the transfusion of children, is the definitive turning point. In Italy too, an enquiry is urgently needed to clarify how many minors are subjected to pharmacological treatments, on the basis of which protocols and with what results.


After the recent victory of Maya Forstater (which we told you about here), criminal lawyer Allison Bailey also won her discrimination case in the labour court.

Bailey, whose case was supported by JK Rowling and by many ordinary people who donated to its crowdfunding campaign, had sued his employer, Garden Court Chambers, and Stonewall, the LGBTQ organisation that Garden Court Chambers paid for advice on how to become 'a more inclusive workplace'. Like Maya Forstater, Allison Bailey had also come under fire for tweets: in these Bailey spoke of the "cotton ceiling' -that is, the phenomenon of men identifying 'as women' and trying to force lesbian women to have sexual relations with them- and lamented the fact that Stonewall, one of the historic gay rights organisations in Britain, had been reduced to intimidating lesbian women in the name of pro-gender identity activism.

Garden Court Chambers had publicly stated that lawyer Bailey, one of the founders of the LGB Alliance gay rights charity, would be "under investigation' following a complaint by Stonewall.

The Central London Labour Court ruled that this was discrimination by Garden Court Chambers, ordered to pay Bailey a damages, including aggravated damages.

The organisation Stonewall, charged by Bailey together with his employer, was not convicted by the labour court. But comes out of this verdict with a severely damaged reputation, as the court ordered Bailey's employer to pay damages precisely for following Stonewall's advice.

The Times reports the news on the front page, with a picture of Rowling and Bailey. Here the full article, and here the text of the press release issued by Advocate Bailey.

Italian Society of Paediatrics: stopping puberty in dysphoric children does not cause permanent problems. But several studies prove otherwise
UK, Sweden, Finland, USA: much of the world is up in arms against puberty blockers that can irreversibly damage the health of girls and boys. The Tavistock clinic in London is closing down, a thousand families are preparing for a class action in defence of their daughters and sons who have not been properly treated, many American paediatricians are attacking their trade association which is pushing for the administration of these drugs. But for the Italian paediatricians' society these problems do not exist
According to the Italian Society of Paediatrics, the effects of puberty blockers used to treat girls and boys with gender dysphoria are perfectly REVERSIBLE: this means that if the girl/boy changes her mind about her intention to 'change sex' and suspends the 'therapy', her development will resume normally, without any definitive effects and/or health problems. This is not the case at all. The effects of puberty blocker therapy are by no means 'completely reversible', as has been demonstrated by several [...]

California, transfusion of children
The American state proposes itself as a 'health' tourism destination for minors who are unable to access transition where they live. Exempting the parents and relieving the operators of any risk of litigation in the event of subsequent 'repentance'. Meanwhile in the UK, after the closure of the Tavistock, eyes are on a Scottish clinic where the experimental model (puberty blockers and surgery) continues to be applied
There is a real war going on in the United States over the ideology of gender identity and its promotion in schools. A 'culture war' pitting the elites, who fund and promote gender ideology, against the ordinary people who oppose it (see the Disney case here). While Biden from day one has made many legislative concessions to trans activism at the federal level, the Republicans have intercepted the discontent of the citizenry with various counter-legislation at the state level, such as [...]

Argentina: stop neutral language in schools
E' was the first country to introduce gender self-identification. Ten years later it is among the first to ban neutral language in schools as it is 'not even that inclusive: it creates a barrier for children with learning difficulties'
In 2012, Argentina was the first country in the world to introduce self-id or gender self-identification into its legal system. Ten years later, it is one of the first countries to ban neutral language in schools. As taught by the mothers of radical feminism and difference thinking, the neutral is a red herring that actually brings the male point of view back to the centre. If the illusion of the neutral is less noticeable in the English language, it is immediately [...]

Where is the Casa delle Donne in Rome going?
'The House we are all' reads the beautiful slogan of the historic enclave in Trastevere. But in that space, which is public and should be open, the#039;agibility is only transfeminist. And after the uncritical support for the Zan ddl -to stop feminicides-, the yes to the 'uterus for rent' and to 'sex work', now also the hymn to male ultra-bodies in women sports: maybe it is time for a reflection
The International House of Women in Rome agrees with the University of Pennsylvania's proposal to name Lia Thomas 'Woman Athlete of the Year'. Lia Thomas, of whom we have spoken several times here, is the famous swimmer who has repeatedly beaten her opponents competing in the women's categories, but who has at least had the merit of finally exploding the issue of male ultra-athletes in women's sports. The post shared by the International House of Women, a confusing little treatise on intersectional feminism, [...].

Maya Forstater, fired for saying sex cannot be changed, wins in court: it was discrimination
Decisive for gender critical feminism around the world was the victory of Maya, a researcher who lost her job over a tweet in which she wrote that biological sex is immutable and that women have rights based on sex. Britain reaffirms the right to criticise gender identity: threats and accusations of transphobia are illegitimate. "A'further proof" says Forstater "that the wind is changing". The final ruling of the labour court also ordered the company that did not renew the contract of the researcher, co-founder of Sex Matters, to pay compensation. A triumph across the board
A year ago, June 2021, Feminist Post published an article on the case of Maya Forstater, the British researcher whose employment contract was not renewed by her employer for expressing critical views on the concept of gender identity and reaffirming the importance of women's gender-based rights. The article ended by reminding readers that Maya's case was not yet over and, although the appeal ruling of the [...]

Women attacked from left and right: the ash on the head of the New York Times
As the organ of the liberals and woke culture, the great US newspaper has been undertaking a vigorous change of course for a few months now, admitting its own excesses and the misogyny of the new progressive course committed to wiping out women. While waiting for the self-critical wind to blow in Europe too
by Pamela Paul Perhaps it makes sense that women - complacent and pleasant-looking creatures, selfless and just as pretty - were the ones who finally brought our polarised country together. Because the far right and the far left have found the one thing they can agree on: women don't matter. The position of the right is best known, the movement has been aggressively dedicated for decades to depriving women of basic rights. Thanks also to two judges [...]
