Italia Viva is playing an active role in mediation on the Zan ddl and proposes that an agreement be reached on a modified text to "bringing Zan back into line with the definition contained in the Scalfarotto billi.e. by adding the words 'or based on homophobia or transphobia, in addition to the issue of disability, and revising the articles accordingly".

In short, away gender identity and away sex - which in the Zan bill extends protection to misogyny-misandry.

It is also requested to delete Article 4 - the so-called idea-saver which does not save ideas at all, and indeed consigns any legitimate opinion to thearbitrariness of the judgewhich alone is entitled to decide whether an expression of thought is or is not ".likely to lead to the concrete danger of the commission of discriminatory or violent acts".

Finally IV proposes the Amendment to Article 7 which introduces the celebration of LGBT day in schools and related training, requesting that the following be added to the textwhile respecting full school autonomy".

Italia Viva's proposals, presented in the Senate's Justice Committee, essentially coincide with the demands of feminism for change: away with gender identity, away with misogyny-misandry, free choice in schools. As you can see herewe have been the first, on 14 June, to indicate a return to the original Scalfarotto bill as a possible mediation route, proposal that we have taken up in this editorial of 28 June in La Stampa

Ddl Zan: siamo fiere di noi

and which we relaunched in a subsequent conference on 1 July in the Senate.

E' It is a source of great satisfaction that they have finally been heard. after a year of doors being slammed in their faces by the proponentsfrom Zan to Zingaretti and then Letta, and unfortunately also from the women of the PD, with a couple of exceptions, from Leu and 5Stelle, who ignored all requests for dialogue.

Apparently, albeit with our bare hands, we worked well, we managed to break the silence and open up public discussion, and today our proposal is at the heart of the political debate. All that remains is to wait for 6 July and the outcome of the mediation attempt.

On the part of the PD the closure seems absolute. At the moment the request is still going to count in the courtroom, but the next few hours could be decisive. After all it would be quite incomprehensible not to consider a text, that of the Scalfarotto bill, which was signed by Zan himself and by various representatives of the Democratic Party and the centre-left, and that it is likely that today could also be supported by part of the centre-right -not only from Forza Italia, but perhaps even from the League, finding the The majority needed for a rapid approval that would provide the country with a good law against homotransphobia -and disability-. Ed avoiding possible difficulties for the government, which would have to deal with a split at a very complex time.

He explains Pharaoh of IV: "Let's make a pact for returning to the Scalfarotto law against homophobia and transphobiawithout any terms that might give rise to doubts, and then cs a majority, we ask Draghi to put his confidence in the House.".

It would therefore be a matter of speeding up the approval of this rule.which has always been described as urgent, and of postpone to a later date a possible discussion on the highly sensitive issue of gender identity and the possible reform of law 164/82 regulating transsexuality, an issue that requires wide-ranging and in-depth reflection.

We wait with confidence. And also, if I may say so, with a certain pride.

Los Angeles: queer clubs on families
Fathers and mothers peacefully demonstrating against the Pride event held at their children's school - kindergarten and primary schools - were physically assaulted with fists and baseball bats by Lgbtq+ and Antifa activists. In California you can no longer decide anything about your children's education
The pictures you see come from Los Angeles, where last Friday a group of parents protested against an LGBTQ Pride event organised at school for kindergarten and primary schools children. A group of left-wing extremists arrived to disrupt the event and attacked the parents with baseball bats and fists, starting a violent brawl that ended only after the police intervened. On the eve of the 'PRIDE assembly' organised at the Saticoy [...]

CIAMS, STOP SURROGACY NOW, FINRRAGE, LA JAPAN COALITION and other associations. And together with them such eminent figures of international feminism as SYLVIANE AGACINSKI, GENA COREA and PHYLLIS CHESLER. Who together with us are asking the Italian parliamentarians to approve the law that will pass the Chamber of Deputies on 19 June.
Rete per l'Inviolabilità del Corpo Femminile (Network for the Inviolability of the Female Body), Radfem Italia, and FINAARGIT (International Feminist Network Against Artificial Reproduction, Gender Ideology and Transhumanism) have always shared the goal of the universal abolition of the surrogate motherhood. Together we support the bill on surrogacy that will be debated in the Chamber of Deputies next 19 June, which extends the punishability of the practice even if it is carried out in a foreign country and which is a decisive step forward in the direction of universal abolition, offering -if approved- a model for other legislations [...].

Who cooked Adam Smith's dinner? For a RadFem economic theory, speech by Sheila Jeffreys
The traditional economy based on the 'rational' homo oeconomicus never takes into account the base of the iceberg: the huge amount of unpaid female labour without which the system simply would not stand. The necessary change does not come from the inclusion of more women in a model that is based on aggression, gambling and risk, but from a new paradigm that places the value of people, relationships and care at the centre
At a recent seminar organised by Women's Declaration International as part of its Radical Feminist Perspectives series, Sheila Jeffreys -former professor of political science at the University of Melbourne and one of the founders of the global WDI network- gave a talk on Rad Fem Economic Theory (the entire meeting can be viewed here). Jeffrey started from a text she wrote in 2010, on the heels of the global financial crisis. It was called 'Who Cooked Adam Smith's Dinner', whose thought completely omitted the [...]

Spain: woke sex also among the reasons for the end of Podemos
Ley Trans. Only Yes is Yes' law that reduced penalties for sex offenders. And now also a Manifesto for Sex Education for All* that jeopardises the safety of girls and boys. The spirit is always the same: a queer sexuality promoted by outgoing minister Irene Montero. Which, however, voters and electors apparently do not like. An analysis by lecturer Juana Gallego, feminist affected by the cancel culture
In yesterday's local elections in Spain, the left lost disastrously - as in Italy, for that matter. In particular, there was the stinging defeat of Podemos, which in many regions almost went extinct. In the analyses of the Spanish vote, perhaps not enough emphasis is given to two manifesto-laws of Podemos, and in particular of the transfeminist minister Irene Montero: the 'Only Yes is Yes' law, which reduced penalties for sexual crimes, and the Ley Trans, which [...]

This time it is: in the skin of children
Against the ruling of the Court of Cassation, which prevents the full transcription of birth certificates of children born from surrogacy by allowing only the biological parent to be named and indicating stepchild adoption for his or her partner, some male couples in Milan are undertaking a new form of resistance: not even registering the biological parent - or both or neither - leaving the child in an administrative limbo in which, in this case, he or she would be deprived of the most elementary rights, from paediatrician to school
After the Prefecture of Milan, in application of a ruling by the Court of Cassation, blocked the transcription of the full birth certificates of children born on the initiative of same-sex couples - indicating that only the biological parent should be transcribed and the stepchild adoption, i.e. adoption in special cases, which is perfectly legitimate, should be the only way forward - the municipality of Milan is experiencing this, according to the report by Roberta Osculati, PD vice-president of the City Council: same-sex couples [...].

Transgender: the victory of Puer Aeternus
An evolution of the unisex who struggled against gender stereotypes, the 'gender' phenomenon among adolescents expresses the attempt to escape the biological debt-obligation and the need to feel disengaged from stepmotherly nature. But the transgender person is by no means his or her own creator: if anything, he or she is subservient to a totipotent 'spirit' that enslaves the mind and psyche. And the gay movement that advocates puerile simulation fails to see that it is precisely homosexual identity that comes off worst
Transgender ideology goes beyond the transsexual claim of the construction of sex by subtraction or addition of something from a matrix, because it challenges the very existence of the male and the female, and especially the latter, making the female gender a product of educational norms, DIY craftsmanship, beauty shop, chemical laboratory, surgical table. Both appeal to the 'truth' of the omnipotent creation of the sexes, destitute of actual reality. Young women in particular are unfortunately fertile ground [...].
