Milan introduces gender self-certification
All it will take is a 'solemn' declaration to be able to choose what sex you are -female, male or neither- without any medical acts, expert opinions or judgments, and to adopt the 'alias' identity in various municipal services, including electoral rolls. In fact self-id, a huge change introduced by a simple administrative act and without any public debate. But it is all to be assessed whether the law allows it
So in Milan, self-id was introduced: it means being able to decide whether you are male, female - or neither - in total freedom, without expert opinions, sentences, witnesses - as the national law provides for: nothing of the sort, a simple bureaucratic step and it's done. In Great Britain, after years of public debate, self-id was shelved: the overwhelming majority of the population was against it. In Milan, without any debate, as if citizenship did not exist, as if laws did not exist, and [...]

Out the door, gender identity is already back in the window
Gender identity is back in the Senate, included in a PD-IV amendment to the Infrastructure bill. Rejected in the Zan bill, the concept reappears in other laws, bills and regulations. A real encirclement that preludes to new imminent attempts to introduce self-certification or self-id. *Ultim'now: the Infrastructures bill would already be law, approved just this morning
The Zan bill has stumbled mainly - but not only - on gender identity, the first step towards free self-certification of gender or self-identity. But once out the door, gender identity is trying to get back in through the window. Or rather, through the many windows of laws, local laws, regulations and codes that will use the concept anyway. An 'encirclement' that could allow a new attempt to pass the formula at the level of national legislation. After all, the battle for gender self-certification is in [...]

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 [...]

The Vatican, feminists, Zan and foolish men
Diplomatic relations between Italy and the Vatican are not our business. On the other hand, we have the utmost competence on the many worrying critical aspects of the Zan bill. We have long asked to be heard. Now we no longer ask. Ask them
Diplomatic relations between Italy and the Vatican are not our business, at least no more than it is for any other citizen. Everyone will legitimately have their own opinion. Some will judge the Vatican's action as undue interference, others as a legitimate call to respect pacts between States. Others will remain perfectly indifferent. However, the subject matter of the crisis - the contents of the Zan bill - is our responsibility, in the sense that we have jurisdiction over it. We are probably among those who know most about these issues. [...]

In Italy, the PD supports gender identity. In Spain the Psoe fights it
Two 'sister' parties divided on such a sensitive issue: for the Spanish socialists, gender identity erases women. Yet with same-sex marriage, Spain is ahead of Italy in terms of LGBT rights. Recommended reading for PD leaders. Especially to the women of that party
The Psoe document against gender identity ARGUMENTS AGAINST THEORIES THAT DENY THE REALITY OF WOMEN Sex is a biological fact and gender is a social construct. Sex is a biological fact. It refers to the bodily, biological and physiological characteristics that define and differentiate human beings as men and women. The sex that women are born with determines their place in the world, from which the space that [...]

Cirinnà master
Debate on #ddlZan organised by PD Lazio. Together with the first signatory Alessandro Zan, Monica Cirinnà, the head of the PD Women's Conference Cecilia D'Elia and a single critical voice, that of Valeria Fedeli. The gist: Zan in an unprecedented mode of dialogue - of which we hope finally to be able to take advantage - and against the violent language, ok; Cecilia D'Elia convincedly pro-Zan informs that the feminism PD is modernly "intersectional" (probably D'Elia has not yet recorded the rising wave, much more up to date around the world, [...].

Letter from a young feminist to Zan and the PD
By all means (social media, email), we tried to talk to Alessandro Zan, the first signatory of the bill on homobi-transphobia, misogyny and ableism, which has already been approved by the Chamber of Deputies and is waiting to be examined by the Senate. We invited him to take part in a Zoom debate to present our reasons and listen to his. We offered him interviews to be published in the daily press. Zan has never given the slightest hint of a response, and this is quite serious for an elected parliamentarian who, in order to legislate [...]
