New records and Olympic ambitions: from Petrillo to Thomas, the 'inclusive' sport that excludes women
The incredible injustice of male bodies in women's sports continues despite the silence of the media. But voices of female athletes forced to compete with male opponents are growing
'Valentina' born Fabrizio: new Italian record and convocation to World Para Athletics By now, the victories in the women's category of 'Valentina' born Fabrizio Petrillo hardly make the headlines anymore. Petrillo, a man who identifies himself as a woman, already held the national record in several categories of women's running last year. Recent sporting chronicles report further improvements in his own records. Petrillo took part in the first round of the Fidal Regional Societaries in Forli (14-15 May 2022), where she recorded a new record [...].

Trans-athlete Petrillo wins it all. And - of course - thinks about politics
Fabrizio-Valentina Petrillo continues to rout opponents. Her last podium finish was at the 200m indoor masters championships in Ancona. She says that sport divided by gender is violence. And she proclaims her motto-manifesto: "Everyone must have the opportunity to determine for themselves who they are". Starting with gender
Between the Olympics and the DDL Zan last year, sports publications devoted a lot of space to 'inclusive sport' and to Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo, presented as the 'first transgender athlete to wear the Italian national team jersey in an international competition'. Petrillo, who competes both in Paralympic competitions for the visually impaired and in the masters championships for female athletes over 35 (here is the entry of the athletes beaten by her male body), hoped until the very end to participate in the female category at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo. The qualification [...]

Too fast, too tall, too strong: An analysis of Petrillo's performance in the men's and then in the women's category #Olympics
A study by statistician Marco Alciator on the athlete's results before and after taking hormones and switching from the male to the female category based on his declared gender identity. Evidently, even with the lowered testosterone levels required to compete in the women's category, he is still unfairly advantaged. But the media rejoice at his easy victories.
When questions arise about the fairness of trans-identified male athletes competing with women, the usual reply is that their performance has deteriorated since their 'gender transition'. Considering the fact that sports competitions are divided by sex, namely the sexual difference of men's and women's bodies, and not on performance parameters, is it true that lowered testosterone levels would worsen the results of male athletes who say they 'feel like women'? The IOC's decision to admit these men to women's competitions [...].

Global mail-bombing to Biden and Kamala: take male bodies out of women's sports! Join in
The issue of the executive order issued by the new American president Joe Biden, which has re-admitted transwomen - male bodies and very often also male genitals, not infrequently mediocre male athletes who claim to 'perceive' themselves as women - to women's sports, as well as to the spaces reserved for women and girls: bathrooms, changing rooms, etc., is becoming increasingly explosive for the new American administration. The WOLF (Women's Liberation Front) is organising a global mail-bombing against the unfair and unjust measure against female athletes, demanding its immediate repeal [...].

Equality according to Biden: the right of men to call themselves women (and to win in all women's sports)
And Kamala? Nothing to say? "On social media, women have expressed relief at the end of the Trump era. Even Canadians have posted pictures of Kamala Harris and Jill Biden in outfits that represent progress. No true feminist would wear a black suit and red tie, after all. What America needs now are those jewel tones. I can't fathom what trauma we have suffered from seeing an egomaniac tweeting himself into the prison of the Internet ... If anything, it offered us the cue [...]
