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.

Sex and gender: JK Rowling's essay
In her text, the writer explains in detail the reasons why she felt the need to address the trans issue, defying the violence of activists. A manifesto-writer for gender critical feminism translated into Italian by Alessandra Asteriti
Attacking JK Rowling can now also be a business. The latest initiative is that of a young Canadian imbecile art book creator who has decided to de-rowling Harry Potter by publishing a special edition of the saga on the cover of which the author's name disappears: $170 per copy for a despicable abuse of power. Let him keep all the copies in stock. Back to the serious stuff: in June 2020 JK Rowling published an essay on her website detailing her position [...].

Femelliste, a gender critical 'sister' platform is born in France
Harassed, insulted, mocked, threatened: French feminists have collected and catalogued the attacks transactivists have suffered for years. And they have set up an information and training site against the dictatorship of transgender ideology
The name of the site is a play on words that cannot be translated into Italian. The site's creators inform that it has already been used by animal feminists such as Posie Parker, Nicole Roelens and the Boucherie Abolition collective. It would make one think of anti-specism, it is actually more and in some respects a little different. 'Femelle' in French means the female animal (for the human one, the same word as woman, femme, is used). Since they fight for sexual rights [...]

The debate on puberty blockers also opens in Italy - finally!
Breaking the silence is the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, which is calling for an open scientific debate on these treatments, which it defines as 'experimental', not supported by adequate studies and at great ethical risk because they predetermine the fate of girls and boys
Much later than in the Great North of Europe, Great Britain, Australia, and some US states - which have abruptly put the brakes on the use of puberty blockers as a 'therapy' for girls and boys with gender non-conforming behaviour - Italy too is finally breaking its silence with a letter addressed to the government by the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, which calls for caution and the opening of a public scientific discussion. Below we reproduce interviews conducted by Marina Terragni for Il Foglio and [...].

Italian psychoanalysts: stop puberty blockers
The Italian Psychoanalytic Society criticises puberty blockers for children: dangerous and experimental treatment. And joins gender critical feminists and parents in calling for scientific data and a public debate on the best treatment for children suffering from gender dysphoria
For years we gender critical feminists have been fighting against the scandal of the medicalisation of children in the name of gender identity. And for years we have been branded as fascists, reactionaries, bigots. Today at last an accredited Italian scientific society, the Italian Psychoanalytic Society (SPI), is taking a stand, joining us in raising a cry of alarm: the use of puberty blockers is an experimental treatment that has no solid scientific basis, and causes serious side effects. Above all, in most cases dysphoria [...]

UK: health service backs down on 'transgender maternity' services after midwives revolt
Fighting is needed: in Great Britain midwives and nurses are rebelling against the announced opening of courses and wards dedicated to the pregnancy and birth of 'trans and non-binary' people. And the NHS stops the initiative. Meanwhile, in the USA there is talk of uterus transplants between living people: donor women for the benefit of men who wish to have 'female physiological experiences'. The old patriarchal dream: to take the place of women. Today acted out by neo-patriarchs T
Fighting serves. The revolt of midwives and nurses has foiled the English National Health Service's (NHS) plan to organise dedicated 'transgender maternity' services. On 16 December, an advertisement had appeared to recruit staff to manage the training of 'trans and non-binary people giving birth' in 40 NHS maternity services, an announcement that provoked an immediate reaction from midwives. A group of around 300 nurses, midwives and psychologists wrote an open letter to Lizzie [...]

I thought my son -4 years old- was trans: I was wrong
Lesbian mother and 'true believer' of the queer cult accompanies and authorises her child to identify as female. Until she realises she was wrong because of ideology. Weeping over her mistake today, she has embarked on a path of 'healing' together with him who has returned to calling himself male. An enlightening testimony
I was a true believer.I was a social justice activist before the social justice movement took over the world. I was at the forefront of introducing the concept of intersectionality in progressive organisations and convincing people to share their pronouns. My friends and I felt like the "cool" ones, the vanguard of a revolutionary work that would change the world, that would achieve what people within the social justice movement call "liberation [...]
