A ghost is roaming the world: thegender identityimpalpable surrogate of the soul on the basis of which anyone can decide which gender to belong to regardless of biological sex. A second birth in self-id fuelling a steadily growing business -a real production of persons T- whose customers are increasingly children addressed at an early age this way and hormonised thanks also to the free access of the propaganda in schools -not to mention social networks and unprecedented media hype, one example here- and to legislation allowing disempowering parents. And even sanctioning them with imprisonment when they try to counter this mainstream: the story we tell today is exemplary.

La Italian law against homobi-transphobia (Zan law) which has already been approved in the House is expected to resume its journey through the Senate shortly.. Does not introduce self-id but could pave the way for it (a proposal to this effect is already ready). with the concept of gender identity at its core. On a similar law (Ley Trans) as we have reported here several times, is battling in Spain: all feminism is mobilised against and the government majority is split between those in favour (Podemos) and those against (Psoe). Furthermore, the Zan law institutionalises LGBT+ 'training' in schools.

La a large part of Italian feminism has called for the concept of gender identity, the cornerstone of the law, to be replaced by that of transsexuality (matter governed by Law 164/82 and subsequent judgments: the petition here) and has repeatedly called for a discussion with the signatories of the law, confrontation that has always been denied.

The unbelievable story we are recounting presents a scenario that we may also have to deal with in Italy.Please note that the use of puberty blocker is already authorised and long practised in our countryand that the target group (mainly girls) is growing day by day.


A Canadian father, which has recently lost a court battle to prevent her teenage daughter from being given testosterone as part of its "gender transitionhas been imprisoned in Vancouver for speaking publicly about the case.

Robert Hooglandwhich in 2019 had been convicted of family violence for refusing to refer to his daughter as 'he' in private and for questioning her perceived 'gender identity' (misgendering) said: "Suppose in five or ten years' time my daughter decides to have a detransition. (see here) and become a woman again (here) and ask me: 'why didn't you do anything to stop it? Why didn't you fight for me then?'"

Canada has enthusiastically adopted the SOGI curriculum (Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity) e children of all ages are taught that they have a 'gender identity' that is more meaningful than biological sex. Many of these educational activities are hidden from parentsand Hoogland only became aware of it when he saw that her daughter was called by a male name in the seventh grade yearbook (the second Italian middle school). In accordance with the school's policy, the school counsellor had the child take a 'social transition' without the parents' knowledge, and she thought of herself as a boy from the age of 11.

The news that in December 2020 theUK High Court rules that children under 16 cannot give consent to puberty blockers and hormones (case Keira Bell) has not been reported in the mainstream press in Canada. Instead the transition of children is presented as a 'human right'. and the public broadcaster CBC has renamed the intervention of double mastectomy elective as "gender-affirming chest reconstruction surgery".

Hoogland's interviews with Canadian media, for which he was convicted, have been removed from YouTube (here a pirated version) and the articles reporting the news online are from English media (e.g. here ) and Americans (here).

Many Canadians have expressed on social networks their concern for the child because in the future she might feel responsible for sending her father to prison and bankruptcy, and causing him trouble. It is not the daughter who chose to send Robert Hoogland to prison, but a judicial system in the pay of the gender identity lobby. Recently, the use of "preferred pronouns" during trials has been established, which could force women to call their rapist 'she'. In addition, a legislation that would criminalise any doctor, therapist, parent, etc. who does not immediately affirm a child's perceived gender identity.

In Canada the dictatorship of gender identity has achieved overwhelming power and is able to override fundamental parental rights and freedom of speech. If we believe that parents do not have their children's best interests at heart, how can we be sure that the transition industry has them at heart?

Vancouver: father jailed for speaking out against his teenage daughter's medical transition

March 24th, 2021

A ghost is roaming the world: gender identity, an intangible surrogate of the soul whereby anyone can decide which gender they are, regardless of biological sex. A rebirth in a new identity that feeds a constantly growing business, a veritable production line of the trans-identified, whose clients are more and more often little girls and boys. These children have been precociously led in this direction of experimental drugs and hormones by propaganda, widely disseminated in schools, not to mention social networks, unprecedented media hammering and legislation that deprives parents of their authority. And even punishes them with jail when they try to oppose this torrent: the story we are telling today is exemplary.

The Italian law against homophobia/transphobia (Zan law), already approved by the Chamber of Deputies, should soon resume its path in the Senate. It does not introduce self-id, but could pave the way for it (a proposal to this effect is already prepared), with the concept of gender identity at its core. On a similar law (Ley Trans), as we have reported several times here, there is a battle going on in Spain: all feminism is mobilised against it and the government majority is split between those in favour (Podemos) and those against (Psoe). In addition, the Zan law institutionalizes LGBTQ+ "education" in schools.

Many Italian feminists have demanded that the concept of gender identity, the lintel of the law, be replaced with that of transsexuality (a matter regulated by law 164/82 and subsequent rulings: the petition here) and have repeatedly called for open discussion with the signatories of the law, a discussion that has always been denied.

The unbelievable story that we are recounting is a situation that we could also have to deal with in Italy: we should remember that the use of puberty blockers has already been authorised and practised for some time in our country, and that the number of people affected (especially girls) is growing every day.

A Canadian father, who recently lost a court battle to prevent his teenage daughter from getting life-altering testosterone injections as part of her 'gender transition', has now been jailed for speaking publicly about the case.

Robert Hoogland, who in 2019 was convicted of family violence for refusing to refer to his daughter as "he" in private and for questioning her perceived "gender identity" (misgendering) said, "Suppose in five or 10 years my daughter is detransitioning (see here) and asks me, 'Why didn't you do anything to stop this? Why none of you stuck your neck out for me back then?'"

Because Canada has eagerly adopted the SOGI (Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity) curriculum, all grades and ages of children are taught that they have a gender identity, which is more significant than biological sex. Many of these resources and lessons are hidden from parents, and Hoogland only learned of them when he read in his daughter's 7th grade yearbook that she was being called a male name. In accordance with school policy, the school counsellor had "socially transitioned" his daughter in secret, and she had been thinking of herself as a boy from the age of 11.

The news that in December 2020 the UK High Court ruled that children under 16 cannot give consent to puberty blockers and hormones (Keira Bell case) was not reported in the mainstream press in Canada. Instead, the transition of children is presented as a 'human right' and the public broadcaster CBC renamed the elective double mastectomy surgery as 'gender-affirming chest reconstruction surgery'.

Hoogland's interviews with Canadian media, for which he was convicted, have been removed from YouTube (a pirated version here) and the articles reporting the news online are from British (e.g. here) and American (here) media.

Many Canadians have expressed their concern for the child on social media because in the future she might feel responsible for sending her dad to prison, for bankrupting him and causing him trouble. It wasn't her choice to jail him, but a justice system in the pocket of the gender identity lobby. Recently, the use of 'preferred pronouns' during trials was established, which could force women to call their rapist 'she'. In addition, legislation is in the pipeline that would criminalize any doctor, therapist, parent, etc. who does not immediately affirm a child's perceived gender identity.

In Canada, the dictatorship of gender identity has achieved overwhelming power and is capable of overriding basic parental rights and free speech. If we believe that parents do not have their children's best interests at heart, how can we be sure that the transition industry has them at heart?

UK: gender identity will no longer be discussed at school
A new crackdown by the Sunak government after the Cass report, which also warns of the risks of social transition of minors, the so-called 'alias identity' that has already been adopted by many Italian schools: in the classroom, it will no longer be taught that one can change sex and sex education will be calibrated according to age. And never without parental consent
After years and years of transactivists from associations such as Stonewall and Mermaids making the rounds with their sex education courses in English schools of all levels, Rishi Sunak's government announced today with Education Minister Gillian Keegan new mandatory guidelines for schoolchildren and students on these issues. Classrooms will no longer teach that you can change your gender identity, as has been the case until now [...]

From Gaza to western delivery rooms, Judith Butler sees fascists everywhere
Fascists, of course, we gender-critical feminists too, 'allies of the right and the Vatican'. The Californian intellectual, renouncing all philosophical subtlety, compiles a political agenda that coincides with the platform of the university students in struggle. And he calls for an alliance between trans people, antifa, the pro-Pal movement, the homeless, black people, migrants and even women - understood as one of many minorities - to build 'a radical democracy inspired by the ideals of socialism'. An account of the Bologna leg of his triumphant European tour
Perhaps today one could speak of the 'Butler Agenda': its platform coincides perfectly with the platform of struggle of the-students throughout the West, with little certainty as to whether the chicken or the egg was born first. Certainly Judith Butler is to all intents and purposes the mother of Gender Theory to which these student(s) (a minority anyway) enthusiastically adhere; in turn these student(s) with their mobilisations are a source of inspiration for Butler, their platforms are also a [...]

Trans surgery increases suicide risk
A very recent study of 90 million patients shows that trans-operated people run a 'significantly higher risk of suicide, death, self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder' and require psychiatric support. Thus, the completion of the long and arduous transition with 'affirmative' surgery does not ensure the achievement of the hoped-for well-being
"Gender affirmation surgery is associated with a significantly higher risk of suicide, death, suicide/self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder than control groups in this real-world database. Since suicide is one of the most common causes of death among adolescents and middle-aged individuals, it is clear that we must work to prevent these unfortunate outcomes. This further reinforces the need for comprehensive psychiatric care in the years following surgery for [...]

Letter to Rishi Sunak: we need a public enquiry into the influence of transgender ideology
One hundred and thirty British MPs, doctors, psychiatrists, academics and detransitioners - among them JK Rowling - have written a letter to the Prime Minister calling on him to examine the 'pervasive influence' of transgender ideology in schools and the National Health Service and to ascertain responsibility for the harm done to thousands of girls and boys
"Rishi, if you read this petition please do the right thing and urgently initiate a public enquiry. The welfare of our children depends on it." Writing this is psychotherapist James Esses, coordinator of the Biological Reality Statement and one of the signatories to an appeal to the British Prime Minister after the major scandal of the treatment of 'confused and vulnerable' children by medical professionals, made evident by Hilary Cass's report. Among the first signatories is JK [...]

Gender is a battlefield
Joe Biden in the midst of campaigning replaces the word sex with gender identity. Germany and Sweden pass new trans laws allowing self-identification (self-id): German parents will be able to decide what sex their newborn child is regardless of whether it has a penis or a vagina. Meanwhile after England also Scotland bans puberty blockers for 'non-compliant' minors. And in Spain, one year after Ley Trans came into force, 'sex changes' have increased by 400 per cent. Even some 30 bearded soldiers have declared themselves women. The lobby pushes furiously and the chaos is unspeakable
While also in Scotland, after England, 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers followed by hormones and surgery) will no longer be prescribed to minors, a decision taken following the publication of the sensational Cass Review, in the United States President Biden - or rather, his firmly Obamian administration - in the midst of the presidential election campaign in November has effectively abolished Title IX of the Education Amendments in force since 1972. The amendment mandated that no one on the basis of sex could be excluded from [...]

Hormone-addicted children: an in vivo trial. Who will pay for it?
Hilary Cass, the British paediatrician who produced a monumental report on 'affirmative therapy' for minors does not mince words: those children 'were used as footballs'. There has never been any evidence that puberty blockers work, that they reduce suicide risk, that they increase patients' well-being: far from it. Will those who, in the absence of scientific certainty, have inflicted these treatments, who have even persecuted so many people of goodwill determined to expose the scandal in the name of truth, go unpunished? Keira Bell, the best known detransitioner, hopes for criminal consequences
Englishwoman Keira Bell, a former patient of the Tavistock Clinic in London, is certainly the most famous of the de-transitioners. After the publication of the Cass Review she tells The Times that she would like to see criminal proceedings started so that the children treated by the clinic with puberty blockers and hormones can finally get justice. Keira is now 27, judges the treatment she was subjected to -blockers, hormones, removal of breasts- "experimental at best, destructive at worst" and believes the professionals have [...]
