France: Transfeminism excludes gender critical women from anti-violence march
Nous Tous claims to command the French squares on the occasion of the international day against violence against women. Hundreds of radical feminists signed a petition against queer colonisation and the definition of Terf, which exposes them to the risk of verbal and even physical violence.
Questions of gender identity have now taken over the feminist debate. No other struggle in the history of mankind has progressed so quickly, with so many resources and so much visibility as the queer movement, or transactivism, which has been making demands for transgender people for the last ten years. Environmentalists, anti-specialists or simple left-wing activists, no one is immune to the advance of transactivism. However, the activism most affected by this issue is that of the fight for women's rights, to the point [...]

Zan draft law: calling things by their name
El verdadero nombre del proyecto de ley de Zan, bloqueado hace unos días en el Senado, debería haber sido "Proyecto de ley sobre la autocertificación de género" y no contra la homotransfobia. Ese era el verdadero objetivo, la autoidentificación, y por eso la ley se ha estancado. Sacrificar la legítima protección de las personas homosexuales y transexuales a la arrogancia del transactivismo queer.
Un breve comentario, tras archivar el proyecto de ley Zan sobre la homobi-transfobia, destinado principalmente a las hermanas y amigas no italianas que nos piden explicaciones; y a las italianas que aún no tienen claro lo que pasó. Hace más o menos un año, el proyecto de ley de Zan contra la homobiotransfobia fue aprobado en la Cámara de Diputados en medio del silencio y la desatención general. En ese momento, los medios de comunicación ocultaron por completo el debate, [...]

Zan Bill: give things their real name
The real name of Zan's bill, which was blocked a few days ago in the Senate, should have been the bill on gender self-certification and not against homotransphobia. That was the real objective, the self-id, and that is why the law has stalled. Sacrificing the rightful protection of homosexual and transsexual people to the arrogance of queer transactivism.
A brief comment, after the filing of Zan's bill on homobi-transphobia, mainly intended for the non-Italian sisters and friends who ask us to explain; and for those Italian women who are still unclear about what happened. About a year ago, Zan's bill against homobi-transphobia was approved in the Chamber of Deputies amidst general silence and inattention. At that stage, the media completely obscured the debate, while the ongoing Covid wave - in Italy the vaccination campaign had not yet begun [...].

Gender identity as seen by a young woman
Following the publication of an official communiqué on Facebook by 'feminists' and Alessandro Zan's re-launch in view of the debate on his bill in the Chamber today, 27 October, I felt it was my duty to make a few things clear out of respect for all women who, like us, do not feel part of this 'feminism'.
I have decided to respond point by point to this communiqué which once again does not fail to misinform. I strongly believe that the women who signed this communiqué do not have a clear understanding of the concept of 'gender identity' which has developed and spread in youth culture over the last few years and which has little to do with the protection of homosexuals and transsexuals. Gender is a social construct that is applied to women and men according to their sex [...]

Marina Terragni: 'There is a desire to give women, their hearts, their difference'.
Entrevista con la escritora sobre la Decreto de Ley Zan, el lenguaje de la inclusión, el feminismo y la transfobia. "No soy un género, soy una mujer".
Artículo original aquí Marina Terragni me corrige inmediatamente: "No soy una feminista histórica, soy feminista y punto". Desde mucho antes de que el tema se pusiera de actualidad en Italia con el Ddl Zan, Terragni -que es escritora, y profesora de filosofía- se ha ocupado de la cuestión más controvertida del mundo feminista occidental, la identidad de género: un concepto que ha divisido a las feministas en dos, las que creen que la categoría de mujer debe replantearse y ampliarse [...]

Spain: Psoe feminists put obstacles in the path of the Trans Law
After the recent about-turn by the Spanish socialists, who had come out in favour of the Trans Law, the party's feminists are reopening the debate, proposing amendments against gender identity for the next Federal Congress. These have met with grassroots approval, while the leadership is currently silent.
The feminist collective of the PSOE presented amendments to some points of the programme at the party's 40th Federal Congress that would violate equality policies. In particular, the aim is to avoid "the introduction of formulations that imply setbacks for equality policies" and therefore for "the guarantee of women's recognised rights". "Replacing sex with gender" explain the signatories "prevents a proper analysis of the social, economic and political reality in the face of inequalities" as well as "jeopardising the necessary disaggregation [...]

Purpose of the veil: to show off what it conceals
Veiling is pornographic in itself. Because it highlights what it conceals: sex. And it divides women into good and bad. Liberals who speak of "choice" perpetuate a patriarchal practice of which gender identity is the ultimate expression.
There is one thing that Covid has proved: a masked society does not work. Supporters of the veil were immediately enthusiastic: "Yes, you see, the mask is like the burqa, but yes, it's the same, it's fun to feel more laïcard (secularist), what do you think?". But comparing surgical mask/full face veil is more or less like comparing a nose scarf on a cold winter's day and a burqa(...) Same with the statement that the Afghan burqa protects women from sexual harassment [...].

COMMUNICATION FROM THE FEMINIST NETWORK AGAINST THE ZAN DDL #NoncancelleRete
The protection of homosexual and transsexual persons is a different game from that of gender identity, which aims to reduce human sexuality to insignificance. The two levels must be kept separate. The Senate should vote in full conscience
The Zan dossier is too important to be left to the electoral tactics and personalism of politicians. At issue, with the introduction of gender identity, is a model of civilisation in which human sexuality is reduced to insignificance, an issue that concerns everyone and everyone. We indicated the possibility of returning to the Scalfarotto bill of 2018 -then relaunched by Italia Viva- because that text, born in the centre-left, guarantees the necessary protection of homosexual and transsexual persons [...]

Zan bill: we are proud of us
Italia Viva's mediation proposal calls for a return to the Scalfarotto bill and corresponds to the demands of feminism. After a year of struggles and doors slammed in our faces, we have finally been heard and are at the centre of the debate.
Italia Viva is playing an active mediation role on the Zan ddl and proposes that an agreement be reached on a modified text to "bring the Zan ddl back to the definition contained in the Scalfarotto ddl, that is, adding the words 'or based on homophobia or transphobia, in addition to the issue of disability, and revising the articles accordingly". In short, away with gender identity and away with sex - which in the Zan bill extends protection to misogyny-misandry. It is also asked to delete Article 4 -the [...]

We would have liked to save you, Saman
No cultural relativism can justify the acceptance of religions or cultures in which women are subjected to men by law, in an odd citizenship. Feminism must be unequivocal on this point.
(in memory of Nadia Riva) Saman was killed by her family for refusing a forced marriage and for wanting to live as a non-Muslim Italian girl. It would have been nice if, like Malika, a fund-raising campaign had been started for you before you were made to disappear. Unfortunately, however, your story and your request for help did not reach the right ears and perhaps they would not have even noticed. It would have been nice if [...]

Canada: gag risk for gender critical feminism
Radical feminists in Canada are sounding the alarm: a new bill by Justin Trudeau's Liberal government, Bill C-10, could severely restrict or even prevent them from posting podcasts or videos on social networks and throughout the web about gender identity or other gender-critical topics. The bill would introduce Canada's most regulated internet in the free world. Bill C-10 was designed to promote "Canadian content" online, but an amendment passed in recent days could allow [...]
