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, [...].

This is Georgia
Surrogacy, gender identity, motherhood: on many issues, the positions of the leader who now looks to the premiership coincide with those of feminism, snubbed by the left. What to do in the face of this challenge? Can the women's movement dialogue with the right?
Giorgia Meloni could become the first woman prime minister in our country. She no longer hides her ambition and if she knows how to do the right things by next spring - or rather, if she does not do the wrong things - and if she manages to escape the volleys of friendly fire, no less intense and insidious than enemy fire, she will be able to achieve her goal, having only herself to thank for the mistakes of her opponents: no one has co-opted her - see here - she has no master [...].

Are you gender critical? You don't get in the USA
The Global Respect Act, a bill being considered by the US Congress, would ban entry visas for anyone who has been responsible for discriminatory acts against LGBT people, or who has induced such acts in third parties. It is enough, therefore, not to adhere to the gender ideology and to think - as we do - that sex is real to no longer be able to enter the United States.
A world gone mad. In the East a brutal dictator is invading a neighbouring country, in the West the ideological drift is producing monsters. If with the Scottish novelty of the super self-id we thought we had reached the top of gender ideology - the request to be able to intervene on the birth certificate to change one's original sex at will, hiding it permanently, and to be able to say that one was born a woman even if one is a man to all effects - well, we were wrong. In the USA they have gone even further. A [...]

Girls who love Drusilla
The chic lady does not really exist. She is just a character en travesti, albeit with her own biography and style. But as a "woman by choice" and not by destiny, she is very popular with young people and is considered a model of femininity. Even if she is a man.
Yesterday evening Drusilla Foer accompanied Amadeus at the Sanremo festival with great success, with the usual corollary of gossip to arouse the curiosity of television viewers. Gianluca Gori, the talented actor who gives life to Drusilla, is neither trans, nor non-binary, nor even a drag queen, but perpetuates the tradition of en travesti shows of which Paolo Poli was the leader. The character seems to live a life of its own with respect to the actor who plays it, it has its own biography to tell (birth, [...]

Uk. You say no baby is born in the wrong body? To jail!
Jennifer Swayne, a feminist from Newport, Wales, was arrested for transphobic hate crime. She had put up stickers and posters with slogans like 'no men in women's prisons' and 'human beings never change sex'. The police searched his home and seized a book critical of the transition of minors. "It is my thinking that is under indictment", she says, "not what I have done".
Welsh feminist Jennifer Swayne was arrested in Newport for transphobic hate crime, on charges of criminal damage and illegal posting. Police had received reports of 'offensive' material being distributed around the city. Swayne was accused of spreading "anti-transgender" messages. She defended herself by saying that the stickers and posters she had put up were not anti-transgender but simply in support of women. Fair Cop, an association that fights in defence of freedom of [...]

Omicron drama: we are also to blame
At the most difficult time in our republican history, we find ourselves with the most inadequate political class ever. It is also our fault that we have left room for the mediocre by practising extraneousness, keeping our political passion outside the institutions and failing to adequately support those of us who would like to bring the female difference to them. Let us think very carefully next time
Dear all, and also dear ones who read us, from my Milanese point of view I can state without fear of contradiction that practically all families - including my own, and including the many families made up of a single person - are currently affected by Covid, which will make this end of 2021 unforgettable. I can also state without fear of contradiction the sidereal distance between those who govern cities and territories and the problems of the citizens, at this time abandoned [...]

"Gender and sexual difference. Glimpses and words in transition": cycle of meetings at the Circolo della Rosa in Verona. Part 1, Ballarin and Zamboni
The Circolo della Rosa of Verona has organised a cycle of meetings on "gender issues", also starting from the conflicts that have arisen during the discussion of the Zan bill. Title of the cycle: "Gender and sexual difference. Looks and words in transition". "As Circolo della Rosa", it is explained, "we felt the need for a confrontation that makes it possible to abandon the logic of taking sides and invites listening, sharing, willingness to open up to the reasons of the other. For this, we have [...]

Can you call a male who perceives himself as a woman a 'man'? Australian court says it is not defamation
"We agree that discussion and debate on this issue is in the public interest," the ruling states. In agreeing with journalist Beth Rep, who was accused by Bridget Clinch, born Matthew Clinch, a former Australian Army captain, of "victimising" him by saying he was a man...
It is called compelled speech, and the aim is to make us say that they, the men, are women if they perceive themselves as such. It is the basis of gender identity ideology: I am a woman if I say so. Calling them 'women' but calling women 'menstruators'; new names -career aliases- and pronouns: neo-language serves to nip opposition and free thought in the bud. That is why they claim that it is an outrage to say that 'they' are not women at all, and even that it is 'violence'. E [...]

Gender identity cages us in sexist stereotypes again
Women have fought hard against stereotypes, liberating everyone and anything. Self-id goes in the opposite direction: it rebuilds patriarchal cages. And the female body is always the battlefield. We must return to that struggle, to give girls and boys back the space of their freedom. Against the transactivist diktat that imposes new rules that imprison her
The fight against gender stereotypes was a women's fight: difference thinking called it free signification of sexual difference. It meant, in the construction of one's own life, escaping the obligation to correspond to male desires and expectations, crystallised in images and roles that have been given the name of gender stereotypes. It meant, for a woman, being able to study and work, or not, to be a mother or not, to say, do, behave, dress according to her own [...]

Canada: Alarm over male violence in women's prisons
Heather Mason, former prisoner and women's rights activist, tells RT News about the reality of women in prisons being sexually abused and violated by 'transgender' men with their male bodies intact in their cells. Here are their letters
In 2017, as the #MeToo movement exploded across the western world, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spontaneously and without warning gave the green light to transfer male inmates who call themselves women to Canada's federal women's prisons. Female inmates in Canadian prisons are at risk of violence from male inmates who identify as women, but no one is willing to discuss the issue for fear of being labelled transphobic. The [...]

British government breaks with Stonewall
The Department of Health breaks its agreement with the large LGBTQ organisation, paid hundreds of thousands of pounds to lobby, imposing the'use of pronouns and free access for anyone to women's spaces based on free gender identity. Great news for British women and for all of us.
The British Department of Health has broken its agreement with Stonewall: it will no longer use its consultancy (lavishly paid: more than £300,000 of taxpayers' money paid to the big organisation so far) to apply its diversity scheme in favour of LGBT staff. The Department of Health is the latest high-profile organisation to distance itself from the lobby group, which has been heavily criticised for its influence and intrusiveness into public policy. A Department spokeswoman said: 'The year [...]
