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.

Women attacked from left and right: the ash on the head of the New York Times
As the organ of the liberals and woke culture, the great US newspaper has been undertaking a vigorous change of course for a few months now, admitting its own excesses and the misogyny of the new progressive course committed to wiping out women. While waiting for the self-critical wind to blow in Europe too
by Pamela Paul Perhaps it makes sense that women - complacent and pleasant-looking creatures, selfless and just as pretty - were the ones who finally brought our polarised country together. Because the far right and the far left have found the one thing they can agree on: women don't matter. The position of the right is best known, the movement has been aggressively dedicated for decades to depriving women of basic rights. Thanks also to two judges [...]

Mayor Beppe Sala's 'gift' to Pride
From now on, in Milan, the birth certificates of children of 'homogenous couples' will be automatically registered, including those born from surrogacy. Although the law and subsequent rulings firmly condemn the practice and point the way to 'adoption' for the 'intended' parent. But the registry office is the responsibility of the State, not of local administrations. And the Milanese have never been asked about it: all the critical aspects of a unilateral and very glamorous decision that could also present profiles of unconstitutionality
'We have restarted the recognition of children born in Italy by homogenous couples': the words with which Mayor Beppe Sala announced his personal 'gift' to Pride initially caused some confusion. In fact, children born 'in Italy' on the initiative of - and not 'by' - same-sex couples are only the children of women united with other women. The children of male couples are born in Canada, California or other procreative tourism destinations, but not in Italy [...].

New England Journal of Medicine: abortion ban is a health catastrophe
The prestigious magazine raises the alarm: it will be mainly poor and black women who will pay the price of the Supreme Court ruling, driven back into abortion with serious health risks. Even the morning-after pill and even the IUD could be banned and prosecuted as abortifacient means
The US Supreme Court's decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization represents an extraordinary reversal (...) Yet it was not unexpected. In the long and painful prelude to the decision, many states severely restricted access to reproductive health care. The fig leaf covering these restrictions was that induced abortion was a dangerous procedure that required stricter regulation to protect the health of women seeking such care. The facts belie this false rhetoric. The latest data available in the United States [...]

How they won the war against Roe
Failure to turn Roe v. Wade into law was the capital mistake of the American left, starting with Barack Obama. Abortion was an entirely secondary issue for trans-politics-absorbed liberals, who have spent years erasing the word 'woman' by renaming it as 'menstruator' and 'uterus carrier', rather than addressing women's rights
How did American pro-lifers win the war against Roe v. Wade? In the article of which we present you with extended excerpts, journalist Sarah Ditum explains how the Democrats' neglect and arrogance unwittingly helped set women's rights in America back 50 years. "When did it become certain that American women's right to abortion would be revoked? The Supreme Court's ruling that "Roe was terribly wrong from the start" leaked almost two months ago, [...]

US midterm elections: will women be decisive after the abortion ruling?
What will American women do now? Will they win solidarity among themselves, as they have always won in Italy over abortion? Or will they settle into opposing sides in a quasi-civil war? The November vote will be the first test. Women could form the strong core of that moderate front that cannot find political expression in the US
What will American women do now? Will they win solidarity among themselves, as they have always won in Italy with regard to abortion, holding together Catholics and agnostics, left-wing and right-wing women in defence of law 194/78? Or will they settle into opposing camps, to put it mildly, the quasi-civil war underway in the United States? The midterm elections in November, with the Republicans as favourites, will be the first test: how many female voters, albeit [...].

Trans issue: change of wind among progressives
The 'la' is given by the American Democrats, but also in the rest of the West the trans-filia of the progressives is beginning to show signs of breaking down. Electoral opportunism, sure. But the change must be registered. Keeping our eyes wide open
Michele Serra is a friend and I appreciate very much that he has taken it upon himself to break the silence from the left -finally- on the unbearable injustice of male bodies in women's sports (L'Amaca in La Repubblica yesterday, 22 June), an injustice against which we have been fighting for a long time (here you will find an infinity of texts on this subject). A note, if possible: I would have avoided using the woke cisgender definition, imposed by transactivism, and in which the vast majority of women in the world, athletes and non-athletes alike, [...].
