Right, left, human, transhuman

The issue of 'rights' -from gender identity to the uterus for rent- is not complementary or on the sidelines, but outlines the horizon towards which we move. But the post-human perspective pursued by progressives is not unique and inescapable. The alternative exists: a female-rooted civilisation

Resubmitting the Zan ddl, in the Senate with very little chance of passage -when other solutions, such as the Scalfarotto bill, would have ensured a law against homobitransfobia-. PD Secretary Letta has repeatedly emphasised that the issue of rights is decisive for his party.

Rights theme that is nevertheless always placed as a complementary, side of issues considered far more important: the war, of course, economic issues, but also simply electoral law.

In truth, most of the political game today is played on what are called 'rights'.

True, the womb for rent or the hormonisation of children or free gender identity are issues that would seem to concern only a minority of the population. But today, 33 years after the end of the Cold War, it is precisely these issues that delineate the horizon in the direction of which one moves - or differently, which one resists.

These themes outline what we call post-human or transhuman horizon, who thinks of natural humanity as archaic and surmountable. What technologies allow one to do becomes immediately licit and desirable. The human no longer constitutes a model for machines; on the contrary, it is machines that are models for human corporeality, right from the moment of reproduction.

The same progressive political camp that advocates the preservation of nature and the environment thus promotes the disempowerment of the mother and the denaturing of the human.

The transhuman horizon is presented as inescapable destiny, but this is not the case.

Ivan Illichfather of contemporary ecologism, in Gender. For a historical critique of equality- prophesied that things might end up this way, explaining that the disappearance of sex in the direction of the neutral "is the decisive condition for the rise of capitalism and a way of life that depends on industrially produced goods'. e "degrades women (...) even more than men'. why 'the common language of the industrial age is simultaneously neutral and sexist', and concluded by stating that "negative growth is necessary to reduce sexism'.

Struggle against unregulated capitalism and fight for women's freedom, resistance to neutralisation and opposition to mercatism thus shape a single goal that could be called 'survival of the human world'. Because, Illich further explains, "the fight against sexism coincides with efforts to reduce the destruction of the environment and attempts to challenge the radical monopoly of goods and services over needs'..

Claiming that the body exists, let it think and speak, is an inescapable preliminary step against the encroachment of patriarchy.

Resisting being women is the first move in this non-violent struggle.

The alternative to the transhuman model is female-rooted civilisation no longer based on the individual and his rights, but keeps the relationship at the centre understood as an indivisible social atom. In this key, for example, it would be important to think of a right whose subject is the relationship, and no longer the individual: a huge and revolutionary task.

This is the direction in which we want to move, understanding these issues - which cannot be avoided, as is often the case, because they are considered 'divisive' - as ultra-political: most of the game is played there.

The transhuman model presents itself as unique, inescapable and invincible: it is not.

It may be bitter to realise, many of us coming from a left-wing background, that the transhuman model is pursued and propagated by the very progressives and liberals throughout the democratic West. But there are too many things to be bitter about.

Petrillo: my body doesn't count, I want to use women's showers. And withdraws from the Torun World Championships for reasons of 'safety'
Winning competitions is not enough: Petrillo also claims to use the women's changing rooms after the Italian Athletics Federation at the request of female athletes decided on reserved spaces. "The state recognises me as a woman, male genitals don't count. Besides,' she sneers, 'it certainly won't be the first time they see them. In the meantime, she renounces the next world championships for 'security' reasons.
A few days ago, we published a report on the competition of Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo in Ancona, with the reactions of the female athletes beaten by her male body. The female athletes made it clear that, although they respected Petrillo's personal journey, athletically they were not on a par and that they felt discriminated against. The statements made by the female athletes to the Feminist Post were taken up by other newspapers, including Il Giornale (here), and provoked comments from Petrillo, who had [...]

'We were wrong': pioneer of puberty blockers admits damage
Susan Bradley, a Canadian psychiatrist who founded a clinic for 'dysphoric' minors in the 1970s and an authority in this field today states that the switch from psychological therapy to drugs was a big mistake. Because their effects are severe and not reversible, because those treatments are 'authoritarian' and experimental. And because in 9 out of 10 cases children's dysphoria is only temporary and masks other disorders.
In an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation, Dr Susan Bradley, a Canadian psychiatrist and a pioneer in the treatment of gender dysphoria in children, spoke out against the popular model of affirming children's transgender identities and treating them with puberty-blocking drugs, a practice she had participated in in the past. Bradley had opened a paediatric clinic in 1975 for children suffering from gender dysphoria, a profound sense of unease concerning the [...]

Prefect to Mayor Sala: stop registering children of same-sex couples
The decision makes those girls and boys more equal and not unequal as we read in many ideological comments today. Starting with the equal right to the truth about one's origins enshrined in all international conventions. And to the attribution of the same rights of citizenship granted to every new born: that is why
The prefect of Milan has ordered the mayor Beppe Sala to block the transcription of birth certificates of children born by same-sex couples. For example, it will no longer be possible to fully transcribe birth certificates produced abroad - in Ukraine, Canada, California, etc. - by surrogacy, which also applies to heterosexual couples who have undertaken this practice. We radical feminists had appealed to the prefect to order Mayor Sala to respect the [...]

Slavoj Žižek: puberty blockers are woke capitalism
The Marxist philosopher speaks of wokeness, the progressive cult of awareness and awakening, giving an evocative psychoanalytic reading of it. And warns that despite appearing under attack today we will have to deal with it for a long time to come
In an evocative article published by Compact, entitled Wokeness is here to stay -which we translate and partially reproduce here- the Marxist philosopher Slavoj Žižek tackles the subject of wokeness, the movement of 'awakening', analysing its critical aspects but also underlining the reasons why we will have to deal with it for a long time to come. Some argue that 'wokeness' is in decline. In reality it is gradually being normalised and conformed even by those who inwardly doubt it, and is practised by most academic institutions, [...].

Transsexuality is not a lunch for genderqueers
Being transgender is not transgenderism but a deeply dramatic experience with an uncertain outcome. Which has nothing to do with the stale stereotypes with which gender identity is expressed. Neviana Calzolari's reflections
Republished courtesy of Dol's Magazine. Original article here Neviana Calzolari, sociologist, activist, writer and TV face. Yet hardly mainstream, indeed among the most acute (and critical) observers of the social-political landscape of our times (...) The I-Dee group of Milan and the Ipazia association of Catania met her. - The Zan bill was designed to combat homotranssphobia, therefore with good intentions,' Neviana began, 'despite this I remain sceptical about certain terminology, in particular 'gender identity', which alarms much of the world [...].

Women and the left: a toxic love
Betrayed, abused, humiliated. And finally supplanted by self-identified neo-women who are far more attractive and functional than the 'old' women by birth. Yet many among us cannot break away from the progressives who show in every way that they do not consider them. The same dynamics of a sick relationship
All loves are born and die, and when they end there is always the one who suffers the most, sometimes only one party, the one who loved sincerely, the other perhaps not, perhaps he was lying. And we women believed in love with the left side seriously, with all our hearts: naively we thought we were the favourites, we believed in promises, even those that clearly appeared false. Carla Lonzi already reminded us half a century ago that the left had sold us 'to the hypothetical Revolution', and even overseas the [...]
