The British government will force users of pornographic sites to prove their age by means of a credit card or other proof of age in order to gain access. The aim is to prevent children and adolescents from viewing increasingly violent and sexually deviant content. Billie Eilish's courageous denunciation sets the standard

The UK government is counting on forcing users of online porn sites to prove their age by credit card or other proof of age in order to gain access: The aim is to prevent children and adolescents from viewing this content.

Sites may be blocked in the United Kingdom or fined millions of pounds if they do not comply with the new rules.

Opponents objected that the innovation could be used to track users' pornographic habits, but the government assured that the measures should not involve the storage of irrelevant data, such as age. In fact, sites such as Pornhub already use sophisticated algorithms and data tracking to monitor the viewing habits of their users.

Digital Minister Chris Philip said: "It is too easy for children to access online pornography. Parents deserve the peace of mind of knowing that their children are protected from seeing things that no child should have to see".

According to a survey by the City University of London, In the UK, four out of five girls aged 16-17 have seen pornographic material online.

However, Andy Burrows, head of online child safety policy at the NGO NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children), believes that the measures taken are not yet sufficient.

The consumption of pornography at a very young age is a violent experience because it deprives children of the free 'perverse-polymorphic' experience of sex. through which each and every one forms his or her own identity and orientation, replacing fantasies and experimentation with pre-packaged and increasingly sadomasochistic imagery to the detriment of women, their bodies and their freedom.

A few months ago, the American musician Billie Eilish reported her trauma from consuming pornography during her teenage years.

UK: stop alla pornografia online per bambine e bambini
Billie Eilish

"I think porn is a disaster. he said. "I used to watch a lot of it. I started when I was something like 11 years. I think it destroyed my brain, I felt devastated.". "The first few times I had sex I didn't say no to things that wouldn't be good for me," she recounted. "I did it because I thought I should be attracted to it."

Porn, he explained, has violent, abusive and degrading content for the female body and for women. And he said he was still "upset"for the negative influence pornographic content had on her. Awareness came only now, on the eve of her 20th birthday. The hardcore content would 'give her nightmares'. Pornography, especially at an early age, distorts the idea of what is normal and consensual during sex.

Surprisingly, a recentUnicef paper played down the effects of pornography on children, claiming that "There is no universal agreement on the nature and extent of harm caused to children by viewing content classified as pornographic'.

SPAIN: SOCIALISTS AGAINST THE TRANS LEY
Unlike their Italian counterparts from the PD and the left who stand for free gender identity, the Spanish progressives break with the PSOE's transactivist policies in defence of women and children. In their manifesto the excellent arguments against what, if passed, could be the worst transactivist law in the world
Breaking with its party, the PSOE, and sending a signal to the women of the European left, who are generally aligned in defence of transactivist diktatism, the Federación de Mujeres Progresistas launches a courageous manifesto against the Trans Law wanted by the governing majority in Spain (PSOE and Podemos) and being approved by an emergency procedure, without an effective parliamentary debate or a wide public discussion. The initiative also comes in response to the clamorous break between historical Spanish feminism -united in the Contraborrado cartel- [...].

Perhaps gender identity does not exist
If it is the biologist Anna Fausto-Sterling, the first to speak about it in the 1990s, the inspiration of Judith Butler and the founder of gender theory, who is in doubt, then perhaps we are at a clamorous and definitive turning point. Stop trans laws before it is too late!
If Judith Butler is The Queen of Gender, Anna Fausto-Sterling is its goddess: zoologist, biologist and lecturer in gender studies -now at Brown University- starting from the rare genetic condition of intersexuality in the early 1990s, she was the first to attack the concept of sexual binaryity, arguing that sexuality is a spectrum and that at least five sexes can be identified ('come on, it wasn't a theory, I was being ironic, it was just a provocation' she later said. But in vain). [...]

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 Burke, was suspended and then arrested for refusing to name a transgender student with a neuter pronoun. Meanwhile, new British PM Liz Truss is reportedly trying to block Scotland's plans to allow self-identification for transgender (self-id) people and has asked lawyers for advice on how to 'pause or prevent' the reforms. Truss, head of the equalities brief as well as a former foreign minister, was instrumental in ruling out [...]

Elizabeth, the last matriarch
The missing queen wielded her power so skilfully that it was invisible. A profound influence that never backfired. Wisdom, an iron sense of duty, pragmatism, emotional control and no narcissism: these are the traits of sovereignty that make her a model of female authority
Gaby Hinsliff for The Guardian Stop all watches. Unplug the phone. For once, the opening lines of WH Auden's poem, Funeral Blues, seem appropriate to the moment. Like it or not, much of public life will come to a halt in the days of mourning as broadcasters suspend their programmes and a state funeral is prepared. However long it may have been predicted, the death of the longest reigning monarch in British history is a moment [...]

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 [...]

UK. Black week for the glittering trans-patriarchy: closed the Tavistock, gender clinic for children. And Allison Bailey wins in court: she was discriminated against for her gender critical views
The ideology of gender identity under attack in UK: NHS orders closure of paediatric transition clinic and points the way to psychological therapies. And Allison Bailey wins employment tribunal case backed by JK Rowling: employer ordered to compensate her for putting her 'under investigation' because of her gender critical views. At the suggestion of Stonewall, who comes out of it with her reputation in tatters
CLOSES TAVISTOCK, CHILDREN'S TRANSITION CLINIC: 'AFFIRMATIVE' APPROACH (DRUGS AND SURGERY) IS DANGEROUS FOR YOUNG PATIENTS 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 patients, most of whom are girls (full article here). The clinic has been accused by several parties of hastily initiating many minors, most of them suffering from spectrum disorders [...].
