Petrillo's stolen records: 'But I also won as a man'. Is this true? Here's the fact-checking
While the Olympic Committee announces a change in the guidelines on the participation of male bodies in women's sports, Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo aspires to participate in the Paralympic Games in the women's category. To those who accuse her of wanting to win easily, she replies that she was winning even before the transition. But this is not the case: here is an analysis of Petrillo's times and how they are evaluated in the male and female categories respectively
After the international federations of swimming, cycling and other sports, even the Olympic Committee is backtracking on the 'inclusive' sport of male bodies in women's sports. Francesco Ricci Bitti at the head of ASOIF, the association that brings together the international federations of summer Olympic sports, announced at a recent conference the need to review the current rules on the participation of transgender athletes, especially MtF, men who 'identify as women'. Francesco Ricci Bitti said, "According to the human rights approach [...]

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 [...]

24 Italian athletes have taken legal action against masculine ultra-cuerpos in their sporting events
Las deportistas -entre las que se encuentran Cristina Sanulli y Denise Neumann, derrotadas por el "transfemenino" Valentina Petrillo- denunciaron que se les depriva de competiciones justas, en violación del Código de Igualdad de Oportunidades. Y escribieron al ministro Bonetti y al subsecretario Vezzali. Hasta ahora no han recibido respuesta.
Ante la proximidad de los Juegos Olímpicos y Paralímpicos de Tokio en julio, los medios de comunicación han empezado a mostrarar imágenes de competiciones de mujeres en las que participan -y casi siempre gan- atletas nacidas como hombres. Gracias a las directrices elaboradas por un grupo exclusivamente masculino del Comité Olímpico Internacional, que establecen como único criterio la autoidentificación con la "identidad de género femenina" y la disminución del nivel de testosterona. Las imágenes de estos cuerpos altos y musculosos, [...]

24 Italian female athletes take legal action against male ultra-athletes in their sports.
The sportswomen -including Cristina Sanulli and Denise Neumann, beaten by Valentina Petrillo, a male athlete, - claim to be deprived of fair competitions, in violation of the Equal Opportunities Code. And they write to Minister Bonetti and Undersecretary Vezzali. No answer so far.
As the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games approached in July, the media began showing footage of women's competitions in which male-born athletes also participate - and almost always win - thanks to the guidelines drawn up by an all-male group of the International Olympic Committee, which provide for self-identification with "female gender identity" and lowered testosterone levels as the only criteria. The images of these, with a frame that despite the breasts, pink jumpsuits, lipstick and red nail varnish remains [...]

Too fast, too tall, too strong. Analysis of Petrillo's performance in the men's category and then in the women's #O Olympics
A study by statistician Marco Alciator on an athlete's results before and after taking hormones and changing category from male to female - even if he is still a man at birth. As you can see, even with lowered testosterone levels for women, there is no contest. But the media rejoice at his easy victories
When someone questions the fairness of male-born athletes competing with women, they usually reply that their performance has deteriorated since the 'gender transition'. Apart from the fact that sports competitions are divided by gender according to the sexual difference of men's and women's bodies and not according to performance parameters, is it true that lowered testosterone levels would worsen the results of male athletes who say they 'feel like women'? [...]

It is also OK in France for males to call themselves women in women's sports. The bomb could explode at the Olympics with a resounding "me too" by female athletes.
This business of male athletes 'identifying as women' in order to participate in women's sports and win easily is simply grotesque as well as violent and misogynistic, and could explode in front of a global audience at the upcoming Tokyo Olympics (unless the pandemic forces a further postponement). Given the high stakes, the number of MtF trans-athletes who will be competing in Japan is growing (while it goes without saying that no FtM athlete is pushing for the next Olympics, as they have their skin as well as their face on the line).
