Mr Zan shows responsibility
Mr Zan, the first signatory of the well-known ddl against homophobia, misogyny, and ableism (but also, as he pointed out in a live broadcast, misandry, heterophobia, in short practically every form of hate in circulation) should show more responsibility by not stirring up hatred in support of his anti-hate proposal. Zan -idem Laura Boldrini and Monica Cirinnà- has always belittled the feminism critical of his bill as inconsistent, residual, old, bigoted, homophobic and transo-phobic. The reasons for feminism are caricatured, mocked, [...]

ILGA, the global LGBT+ cartel, calls for lowering the age of sexual consent for minors. And abusively calls its demand "feminist".
Twenty-five years after the Beijing World Conference on Women, ILGA -the largest Lgbtq+ global network- proposes an "update" (including gender identity and all the things we already know and won't go into here, Feminist Post has been talking about it far and wide) but especially with the request to lower the age of sexual consent for minors. The age of sexual consent differs from nation to nation: for example, in [...]

Zan law: we need real confrontations, not a war of communiqués
Feminism, which is critical of the Zan bill, has recently issued a communiqué -see here- listing once again the reasons why we are opposed not to a law against homotransphobia, but to THIS law against homotransphobia. Reasons that are always the same, since months, and as such perfectly debatable in a confrontation -if it was accepted, but so far it has not happened-. It is rather depressing that instead of considering these reasons, instead of confronting them [...]

Feminism and Zan law
In these hours, the LGBT+ world is mobilising to ask the Senate Justice Commission to schedule the Zan bill against homobitransphobia, misogyny and ableism, which has already been approved by the Chamber of Deputies. Arcilesbica has drawn up a number of proposed amendments, without which, it says, "there is a risk of serious breakdown". These, in brief, are the proposals addressed to the centre-left senators. - in the definitions in art.1, use the clear terms of "sex, gender stereotypes, sexual orientation, transsexuality", instead of the current ambiguities (sex, gender, orientation [...]

Spain: left-wing women rebel -finally- against the Podemos transcult and break with the party and Ley Trans
While the Italian left, women included, silently suffers Cirinnismo and Boldrinismo and its transcult (just in these days the news of an appeal by the International House of Women in Rome in support of Monica Cirinnà as mayor, see here), the militants of the Spanish left, Podemos and Izquierda Unida, are revolting en masse against the Ley Trans (see here) proposed by the Minister of Igualdad of their own party, Irene Montero, the local Cirinnà (Psoe has always opposed the law), denouncing the "imposition" of [...]

Sign up now, in time for 8 March! From women around the world to the US Senate: Don't pass the Equality Act! Gender identity' erases us
A letter to be signed immediately! (In the United States, the Equality Act, which has already passed the House of Representatives, is about to be approved in the Senate. As Feminist Post has repeatedly reported, the Equality Act, strongly supported by the Biden administration, effectively replaces the concept of "sex" with that of "gender identity", erasing women, girls and children and making being a woman a "choice" available to men. Declaration on Women's Sex-Based Rights, which has a network of 15,000 adherents [...]

Spain: Hands off girls' eggs. Feminists against recruitment in universities
The Spanish feminist association Rapiegas is launching a campaign against advertising for the 'donation' of egg cells in universities with the aim of recruiting as many young women as possible (to join the campaign click here). Egg cells are a scarce and valuable material, in great demand for both heterologous assisted reproduction and research. The 2006 Spanish law on Human Assisted Fertilisation Techniques prohibits "advertisements or campaigns encouraging the donation of human cells and tissues... in [...]

Those good progressive boys, fake friends of feminism
Radical feminism around the world is discussing the need to stop having illusions about the left's support for the women's movement. Today, on the contrary, left-wing transhumanism (free sex work, free uterus for rent, support for gender identity, hormones for girls and boys and all the rest) is creating many problems for women. Here is an example of left-wing anti-feminism of these very days: the newspaper Il Manifesto which reduces to a brawl between envious hysterics (Carmen [...]

It's Valentine's Day: loved ones. Or rather: FitLovas, feminism and gymnastics
Today in Italy as in the rest of the world is the day of chocolates, flowers and soft toys. The day that if you're single you hate all couples and if you're engaged you start planning two weeks in advance where you'll have dinner, what you'll wear and what you'll give him as a present. Instead, today, with a feminist conscience, I want to propose something to you. I propose that you ask yourself: what do you do to love yourself? Ask yourself if you give yourself the self-love you deserve and how you give it to yourself. I believe there is no better day [...]

Non-più-Nadia (in memory of Nadia Riva)
Another dimension. Looking for an image of how I feel after learning of Nadia Riva's sudden death, two come to mind: a kind of chasm, in that courtyard of the railing in Via Col di Lana, Milan, where she lived. As if a meteorite had struck, no less. And then I feel I've entered the dimension of no-more-Nadia, a dimension of which I currently understand very little. I'm talking about Nadia on the sidelines, I'm certainly the last to have the right to do so. But [...]

When I 'returned' to being a woman. And as a transman I found myself a feminist.
A wonderful testimony from our new contributor Valentina Beoni. When I was still identifying as a transgender man, I often reacted badly to comments on social media and in particular those from radical feminists (whom I called "TERF"). I'd even fallen out with Magdalen Berns, a gender critical British youtuber who passed away in 2019, because at her statement "you are not a male" I'd heaped insults on her. As soon as I decided to stop transitioning I [...]

FEMINISM IS NEITHER LEFT-WING NOR RIGHT-WING: IT STANDS ALONE
Feminism is neither right-wing nor left-wing. To anyone who doubts the continuing influence of the American Empire, the international response to Ruth Bader Ginsberg's death should give pause for thought. Twitter in Britain - always focused on American events - was immediately filled with feverish speculation about who might replace her on the US Supreme Court. Glasgow City's women's football team announced that they would put her name on a banner as a tribute to [...]
