Mothers should not be left alone
While waiting for the details of the terrible figlicide in Mascalucia to be defined, one thing applies to all: motherhood cannot be experienced in solitude. In the absence of that 'village' that serves to raise every creature that comes into the world, places for new mothers to meet and freely share experiences and experiences are needed. To maximise joy and give course to feminine and maternal wisdom, the foundation of civilisation
The picture of the Mascalucia child murder is still not entirely clear: whether the crime was premeditated (the last embrace between mother and daughter on the way out of the kindergarten was heartbreaking), whether the girl was of sound mind, whether she acted alone, and so on. The investigators will do their work, the court will establish responsibility and punishment, although no punishment can be greater than the one the mother inflicted on herself with her terrible act. But one [...]

Madonna mistress sadomasochism
A bare-breasted Madonna dressed as an S&M mistress paraded on the shoulders of a group of protesters during the Pride in Cremona. These are the reflections of Daniela Tuscano
Maria vulva sacra, Our Lady of Milk, is one of the oldest and most venerated icons, especially in the Middle East and Ethiopia, where Christianity took root from the first century. Even today, the Grotto of Milk in Jerusalem is the destination of incessant pilgrimages of women expecting or wishing to become mothers. Every 29 April, the Orthodox Church celebrates with a splendid hymn the breasts of Mary, the 'life-giving Spring' that lifts the sick from their beds, frees the afflicted, strengthens the frail, [...]

Laura Massaro won for all
The most famous of the mothers under attack on the basis of the fictitious 'theory' of parental alienation has won her battle in the Court of Cassation, for herself and for all women in her situation: from now on, children can no longer be taken by force and it will no longer be so easy to talk about alienating mothers. It is also a symbolic victory, putting mothers back at the centre against all equalitarian rhetoric.
With Order No. 9691/2022, the Supreme Court of Cassation ruled in favour of Laura Massaro and banned parental alienation from the courts, defining the forced removal of minors, who must always be heard in proceedings concerning them, as contrary to the rule of law. A clamorous sentence - thanks to Laura's courage and to the amazing work of the lawyers Teresa Manente and Ilaria Bogliano - despite the bad auspices and the harshness of the outcome of the appeal, not to mention the inadmissible attempts to discredit Laura by "trying" her just 4 years ago.

Stonewall backtracks and 'authorises' the use of the word mother
After losing agreements with some big companies, including the Health Service and the BBC - and therefore a lot of money - the UK's largest LGBT+ organisation moderately updates its guidelines for "inclusiveness": it will no longer be required to use terms like "pregnant person" or "person who has given birth" instead of mother. Change of course = no-bankruptcy
Stonewall has dropped legislation advising workplace equality organisations to remove the word 'mother' from their policies. The lobby announced that it would no longer reward with higher ranking scores employers who would adopt gender-neutral alternatives by starting to use "mother". Nancy Kelley, Stonewall's chief executive, denied in an interview that such a policy existed. "We are not interested in removing or deleting the [...]

3 months paternity leave: but mothers and fathers are not equal
The "Family Act" measure announced by Equal Opportunities Minister Bonetti at the Women's Forum G20 Italy. But if greater male participation is desirable, the equalitarian logic that inspires sharing moves once again in the direction of the neutral, denying female difference and promoting ineffective actions
During the opening of the "Women's Forum G20 Italy" in Milan, the Minister for Equal Opportunities, Elena Bonetti, announced plans to gradually extend compulsory paternity leave from the current 10 days to 3 months, as part of the "Family Act". The extension - and in some cases equalisation - of fathers' and mothers' leave is presented as a progressive policy aimed at achieving greater "gender equality" in the family and at work, as well as [...]

Trans, femminielli and the mother's body
The Anglo-Saxon Lgbtq culture distorts the ancient Mediterranean wisdom of sexual difference. And even the femminielli today want to be called women. Breaking with the symbolic order of the mother to surrender to the law of the father.
In Italy, the transcult came as a surprise. We would never have believed it. Some of us had been following events in the UK for some time - starting with the attempt, eventually shelved, to reform the Gender Recognition Act - and overseas, but we were wrong to think that nothing of the kind would ever happen here. In Southern Europe, gender identity is presented as a cultural injustice. When I try to tell my Anglo-Saxon sisters about the millennial culture of sexual differences in the Mediterranean basin, I often [...]

Thieves of children
7 years old, seriously ill, another child forcibly removed from his mother and taken to a foster home. In the name of equal 'bigenitoriality' and law 54 on shared custody, which makes children suffer and diminishes the maternal role. But mother and father are not equivalent. That law must be changed
On the night of 26-27 July, just after St. Anne's Day, the patron saint of mothers and pregnant women, another child was taken from his mother in VIterbo and forced into a family home. He is 7 years old and a special child - he suffers from a severe neurological disease - and his mother took care of him. But protective mothers are judged symbiotic, 'accused' of parental alienation syndrome, misogynistic and unscientific tool [...]

The girls' tenderness for 'the two dads'.
Some time ago on the blog "Dads by choice" a video with two children and their two fathers wishing Christmas via Skype to their overseas "surrogate mother" (belly-mummy). Everything was perfect, smiling children, caring fathers, a Christmas home, gifts, the belly-mummy connecting with her children and husband: a "big extended family", says the end of the video. Many comments express perplexity at this narrative of absolute happiness: Skype is certainly not enough to heal the wound [...].

The little girl from Baressa. And her mother
Michela lives in Baressa, Oristano, and has a little girl. In July 2018, when she was not even 3 years old, the child was taken by the police who, on the basis of a judgment of exclusive custody, handed her over to her father, Michela's ex-husband, whom she accused of ill-treatment. The man lives in Viterbo, a long way from Baressa. Michela has not seen her daughter for some time. On Monday 11 January she will have to appear before the Court of Oristano to answer for the crime of child abduction. Here [...]
