"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 [...]

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 [...].
