But women still exist
We don't like the title too much, especially that laconic 'again', but thanks to La Repubblica for hosting our intervention in the debate that started with Michela Marzano's text entitled 'Se non è il sesso a fare la donna'. We republish it here because you cannot find it on'online
Published in La Repubblica our text in the debate opened by Michela Marzano with her intervention on 'women with penises' and other wonders. We are keeping the original title that was given to our intervention so as not to cause confusion, even if we do not like it much. Here is the full text to follow. What is a woman? She is the one who brought us into the world, each and every one of us. Of this there can be no doubt. Which in no way means that [...]

A letter to the editor of Repubblica. To explain to him what a woman is
Reactions from readers - and also readers - to Michela Marzano's unacceptable text according to which anyone is entitled to call herself a woman, and if a woman has something to object to, she is a TERF are multiplying. Here is Alessia Teani's open letter to Maurizio Molinari
Dear Director Maurizio Molinari, I take the liberty of writing to you directly because you have dared to call me a TERF from the pages of your newspaper. You said it to me, to my mother, to my good grandmothers. You have called my granddaughters, my pupils, my friends TERF. You, Mr. Molinari, are calling TERF to all the women who, upon entering the women's locker room, do not expect to see a naked man, with all the arrogance that your well-meaning [...]

Norwegian feminist faces 3 years in prison for saying a man cannot be a mother
Christine Ellington, WDI's Norway contact person, investigated by the police for hate crime against a certain Jentoft who says she is a 'lesbian'. And whom she denounced, with the support of Amnesty International. Today, calling oneself a woman is possible for everyone. Except for women
While Netflix is under transactivist attack for broadcasting actor Ricky Gervais' stand-up, which dared to make fun of 'women with penises', there is much less joking in Norway. Christina Ellington, a representative of WDI (Women's Declaration International) is being investigated by the police and faces 3 years in jail for tweeting that males cannot be lesbians and for saying on TV to a male Jentoft, who identifies as a lesbian woman: 'You are a man. You can't be [...]

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 [...]

New Jersey. Pregnancies in women's prison after arrival of trans 'inmates'
Two inmates pregnant in New Jersey women's prison after the arrival of transgender prisoners. Complaints of harassment by men who 'identify' as women and protests by guards were in vain. Gender self-determination weighs heavy on US prison system
Two inmates became pregnant after having sex with a transgender prisoner at New Jersey's only women's prison, the Edna Mahan Correctional Institution. This was stated at a press conference by the head of external relations of the state's Department of Corrections. It is unclear whether the inmates have had relations with the same trans-identified inmate and whether they intend to carry the pregnancy forward. Officials at the prison, which has long been in the eye of the storm over allegations of abuse, specified that the [...]

Self-id is a disaster for transgender people: Debbie Hayton speaks out
One of the UK's most famous transwomen, the journalist attacks the draft law promoted by the Scottish government. She insists that this innovation would be ill-advised for T people, not just women. And she sides with JK Rowling.
For transgender people like me, the Scottish government's bill to reform the Gender Recognition Act is a disaster. If passed unamended, the bill would introduce 'self-id', wiping out the checks and balances that make the gender reassignment process trustworthy in the eyes of the public. This is not an insignificant administrative detail: allowing any man to actually call himself a woman just because he wants to is an affront to the [...]

France: Don't you support your child's transition? We take him away
The law just approved "against conversion therapies" provides for the loss of parental authority for those who resist the "new gender identity" of daughters and sons. And up to three years in prison and heavy penalties for specialists who attempt a psychological approach, not supporting the minor's immediate transition. The transactivist ideology that erases with medicalisation the natural sexual uncertainties that accompany childhood and adolescence wins.
In France, parents who question the 'transition' and gender identity of their minor children may lose their parental authority The new law - orwellianally called 'against conversion therapies' - provides for three years' imprisonment and a fine of 45,000 euros for professionals who do not obey the wishes of minors. Families who object may lose their parental authority. In fact, a Trojan horse law to introduce the ideology of gender identity into the legal system. The case of Robert Hoogland, father [...]

Prisons, Cartabia reform: respect the rights of trans people without making women pay the price
Possible measures include the establishment of trans wards adjacent to women's sections to avoid violence from men. But space for inclusion cannot be found by asking for a step backwards from female prisoners, who are forced to share cells with males who identify themselves as women. It happens in Canada, in California, in Scotland. And there is already an Italian case
Justice Minister Marta Cartabia has announced that she will commit the month of January to prison reform. Discussions on the text are ongoing. In this press summary the salient points. One of the issues under discussion is the question of transgender prisoners. According to the article 'there is a specific action for anti-discrimination protection for sexual orientation and gender identity. It is proposed to adopt a circular regulating homogeneous sections for transgender or self-declared persons [...].

"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 [...]

UK: no to gender-neutral passports
Christie Elan-Cane, who defines herself as non-binary, lost her appeal to the Supreme Court asking to be transcribed in documents as gender X. While recognising the right to define oneself as gender-neutral in private life and relationships, the court ruled that the interest in defining sex in public documents was paramount.
The decision of the English Supreme Court, which denies the transcription of gender-neutrality in passports, is particularly interesting because it gives precedence to the public interest over that of the person asking to be transcribed as non-binary. It says that while in one's personal relationships one can ask to be treated and named as one sees fit - with the agreement of the interlocutors - in public life gender certainty is relevant and therefore paramount. An activist lost his case on behalf of the Supreme Court [...]

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 [...]

Bullying and social contagion behind the epidemic of 'trans children' in British schools
Children who come home from school saying they are 'trans' often have autism or learning difficulties and have been bullied. In the UK, parents denounce the role of peers and teachers and accuse schools of failing in their duty of care towards vulnerable pupils.
Since we founded Our Duty in 2018, we have collected the experiences of parents with children who would like to put themselves on a path that ends in mutilation, sterilisation, loss of sexual function and regret, throughout their lives. Their testimonies reveal how children are encouraged to embrace a transgender identity by other pupils, with the connivance of teachers and often deliberately without the knowledge of their parents. [...] We begin with the testimony of a mother of a boy [...].
