Jama: when men give birth

In an incredible, recently published study, the American Medical Association's journal, one of the most important in the field, tries to give scientific backing to the idea that childbirth is not just a female experience. Because if it were exclusive, it would also be exclusionary. An operation on language in collision with reality

As you know ct are words that can no longer be used especially in international scientific documents and studies. At the top of the list of tabooed words all terms that have to do with female difference understood as the exclusive possibility of giving birth to human beingsand therefore: 'woman' -if biologically understood and not open to define persons not born women-, 'mother' e "maternal', "breasts', with reference to breastfeeding and so on.

The operation on language has the objective of qualifying the female-maternal experience as voluntarily 'excluding' (instead of, as is the case, objectively exclusive) and therefore to stigmatise it when it is not open to include people who claim to belong to the male gender.

Motherhood is the epicentre of a neo-patriarchal language revolution -and the ensuing political operations- aimed at keeping it on the fringes as an 'abject (Julia Kristeva) who cannot claim to found civilisations.

An illuminating example is the recent study published by Jama -Journal of the American Medical Association, among the most important journals in the medical field-. Title: 'Pregnancy outcomes in a US cohort of transgender people'. The 'transgender people' in question are biological women who identify themselves as men who give birth (but no man can gestate and give birth, if you do not have a female body you cannot do it).

Jama: quando gli uomini partoriscono

"Transgender, non-binary and gender diverse (trans) people," it is written, "have worse health outcomes than cisgender people. Trans people can and do get pregnant, but information is as limited as aidati on pregnancy outcomes. Barriers to accessing prenatal care, minority stress and stigma, and previous or ongoing use of testosterone can place trans people at high risk of perinatal complications'. It is quite intuitive that Stuffing oneself with male hormones can create considerable problems for both the mother - who obviously claims to be called a father - and the unborn child.

These subjects are referred to by the study as "male patients at the time of delivery": as if there was a possibility of being brought into the world through a male sex.

The study notes a fewer caesarean sections among trans people giving birth (they are generally younger than the women who identify themselves as women and whom the study names as cis). The "severe parental morbidity (also known as severe maternal morbidity)' or the severe parental morbidity (also known as severe maternal morbidity): there is a clear intention not to use the word mother and to putting the few experiences of dysphoric women and the overwhelming majority of mothers on an equal footing serenely accommodated in their being women. So language, which belongs to all, has to conform to the needs of a small minority: against the minority stress of a few, we all get stressed and deleted.

A distinction is made between 'birthing' and 'non-birthing trans people'. omitting the fact that theand 'birthing' can only give birth because their sexual body is female.

The results of the study are not particularly relevant. Instead, the extraordinary commitment on the language front, a real struggle with material reality with the aim of minimising it, making it 'abject' and residual in the face of hallucinatory self-perception that must prevail. Above all, it notes that conducting the ideological operation is not a queer magazine but one of the most important, if not the most important magazine in the field, committed to offering scientific grounding to the sensational fola of men who can give birth.

The real world in reverse
There is no straight world -tradition- versus a crooked world -trans-progressivism-. The two opposing worlds perpetuate patriarchy in different ways but with the same goal: to maintain domination over women. A millennial distortion: male usurpation of women's physical and metaphysical spaces
The political and social debate sees the supporters of two world models clashing, a metaphysical and philosophical clash rather than a strictly political one. A controversy that as women we observe with perplexity: two opposing and seemingly irreconcilable models, tradition versus modernity, ancient and sacred values versus ubiquitous fluidity, the family of yesteryear versus the queer family.... On one side and on the other, champions of the patriarchal world who speak the language of the ideologies of the 'short century'. All claim to be on the [...]

Open letter to Health Minister Schillaci: medically assisted procreation does not increase the birth rate. On the contrary, it is among the causes of the demographic winter
Free homologous fertilisation and a €1,500 ticket for heterologous fertilisation: the minister announces new measures that would help stem the birth crisis. But it is the exact opposite: the more we feed the illusion of being able to postpone the birth of a child ad libitum - the results of PMA are poor: in more than 8 out of 10 cases it fails - the fewer children will be born. There is only one way: infertility prevention. Starting with correct information against the propaganda of the reproductive biomarket
Dear Minister Schillaci, we learn from press reports that as of 1 January next year the National Health Service will provide homologous fertilisation services free of charge and that it has established a co-payment for heterologous fertilisation - the responsibility of the region - which is expected to be around 1,500 euro. The provision would be part, according to him, of the measures against the birth rate in our country: less than 400 thousand births in 2022, the lowest number since the unification of Italy to date. In reality, as he explains [...]

UK, you can no longer say 'woman' or 'mother': woke provisions of the General Medical Council
Decision of unprecedented violence by the British Medical Register: the word woman must be deleted at every level. It cannot even be mentioned when discussing motherhood, childbirth, breastfeeding, menopause. Even 999, the emergency number, can no longer ask what sex the person asking for help is. The woke know very well that the female body is the main obstacle to the transhuman project. And they want to erase it even in language
It keeps happening: women and mothers must also be erased from the vocabulary, at every level. They do not give up because the maternal symbolic is the most resistant obstacle to the transhuman project. We will not give up either. Forget it The General Medical Council -the public body that maintains the official register of doctors in the UK- has replaced the word 'mother' with neutral terms in its maternity guide for staff. The updated guide for employees who become pregnant omits [...]

Female wombs in male bodies
The envious dream of all time -to be able to have children without women, to erase mothers, in short, the Grail- is getting closer and closer to being realised: in five to ten years' time, even biologically male trans people will be able to receive a womb transplant and conduct a gestation. An 'inclusive' wish-right that would improve their quality of life and alleviate the symptoms of dysphoria. While the lives and health of girls and boys born from these practices are of no concern to bioethicists
Euronews reports on the rapid progress of research on the uterus transplantation front, with particular reference to the request of trans MtF people whose bodies remain biologically male, while FtM people, if they retain their female genital apparatus, can undertake a pregnancy like any other woman: the 'pregnant fathers' that the mainstream press likes to report on are none other than women who self-identify as men. In the article, which we translate here, women are referred to as cis- women, suffixed [...]

Appeal to the FDA: no more silence on puberty-blocking drugs
A petition asks the US drug agency -which has never authorised the off-label use of these substances for girls and boys with dysphoria- to counter the misinformation that propagates these treatments as effective and safe and to demand studies to prove it.Between 207 and 2021, the number of minors treated has more than doubled and the FDA can no longer pretend it is blind.
On his site Gender Clinic News Bernard Lane reports on an important petition to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration, US drug regulator) to take urgent action on the unapproved (off label) use of hormone suppressant drugs to block puberty in girls and boys who identify as transgender. Although this use has never been approved by the FDA, it is not possible for the agency to ignore the possible harm to minors who are subjected to these [...].

Denmark: no more hormones for children! Even trans people say so
After the UK, Sweden, Finland, Norway and the Netherlands also Denmark says stop to puberty blockers for gender non-conforming girls: those drugs are experimental and there is no scientific evidence that they work. But here the government initiative is supported by important LGBT associations: this is the first time it has happened. And in Italy? You cannot even know how many minors are treated
Denmark is also backtracking on puberty blockers for children confused about their sex: the Danish health system will henceforth offer psychological therapies and no longer drugs to adolescents who have not reported discomfort with their birth sex since childhood. This was announced by Health Minister Sophie Løhde during a parliamentary debate that rejected a proposal by the populist Nye Borgerlige (New Zealand) party to completely ban gender transition for minors.
