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 really appreciate 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 (The Hammock at The Republic yesterday, 22 June), an injustice against which we have been fighting for a long time (here you will find plenty of texts on this subject). A note, if possible: I would have avoided using the definition woke cisgender, imposed by transactivism, and in which the vast majority of women in the world, athletes and non-athletes alike, do not wish to identify themselves.

Albeit late, since it comes after the world federations of many sports -from cycling to swimming to rugby and now awaiting athletics- have recognised that male bodies in women's categories are unfair (disloyal), the signal is very interesting. Of course, if it had come sooner, a lot of suffering would have been spared for the athletes and non-athletes who rallied around their battle, but better late than never.

The signal is interesting because along with many other signals arriving simultaneously tells us that progressives and liberals are finally realising that continuing to uncritically and 'correctly' espouse the transactivist and queer cause will quickly bring them crashing down: By 'quickly' I mean, for example, the elections of midterm in November in the US.

The testing ground was Virginia, won by the Republicans last November: conservative Glenn Youngkin, told precisely The Republic, won as it was "capable of breaking all democratic taboos, dismissing the transgender issue at school, fluid sexualitypromising to close school curricula that were based on the critical analysis of race theory'.

No less a person than the former Secretary of State and presidential candidate has come out to announce the change of course. Hillary Clinton in an interview with the Financial Times, braking sharply on policies trans-friendly inaugurated by the Obama administration -said trans-president- and vigorously pursued by President Joe Biden: one of his very first executive orderday 1 as a newly elected president, was the readmission of transgender athletes in women's sports categories, which may give an idea of the political weight of the issue. If we go down this road, Hillary said in essence, we are gambling with the presidency.

Another clue, the change of wind at the New York Times, newspaper of the US liberals: capturing the readers' discontent -that of trans-centrality and in general of wokeism can't take it any more - in a sensational editorial published on 18 March had admitted 'social silencing' and 'de-pluralisation': 'The robust defence of free speech was once a progressive ideal' while today many progressives have 'become intolerant of people who disagree with them' assuming attitudes of hypocrisy and censorship that have long been typical of the right wing.

One of the issues on which the New York Times decided to romposing silence is the drama of girls and children gender nonconforming -always more and more- started early in the transition with the administration of puberty blockers and hormones, medical scandal which some have compared to the lobotomy of the last century and which represents an open wound for the progressive trans-philic mannerism (Joe Biden again, just a couple of months ago, released a document in favour of the hormonisation of minors against which thousands of American paediatricians revolted).

Put together, these signs indicate the liberal - admittedly belated - attempt to change course, attempt to which, sooner or later, the progressive parties throughout the West. PD included, which currently remains stranded in the nonsense of the 'either Zan or death' (a choice that will deprive the country of a good law against homotranssphobia: all that was needed was the old ddl Scalfarottoas we have repeatedly said, in order to find a parliamentary majority: a proposal appreciated only by Italia Viva) and in a guilty confusion over the priorities on the agenda, ill-concealed by a zero-cost diktatism.

One does not know whether to be happy or not: years of bare-knuckle battles, humiliation, marginalisation, deplatformisation and contemptuous non-hearing on an infinite number of issues, from the uterus for rent to gender identity: it was OK to confront even Fedez and porn-influencers, with us never. And now the impassable wall we had in front of us is filling with cracks, largely for reasons of electoral opportunism (and in the case of the media, of survival: cancellations of subscriptions like it was raining).

We will have to witness the spectacle of those who have so tenaciously obstructed us trying to cash in on the gains of our labour.

Amen, what matters is the result. But It is also important to keep one's eyes wide open, not to take a single step backwards, not to give up one's leading role, not to give in to easy flattery. The road is still long and bumpy.

Italian Society of Paediatrics: stopping puberty in dysphoric children does not cause permanent problems. But several studies prove otherwise
UK, Sweden, Finland, USA: much of the world is up in arms against puberty blockers that can irreversibly damage the health of girls and boys. The Tavistock clinic in London is closing down, a thousand families are preparing for a class action in defence of their daughters and sons who have not been properly treated, many American paediatricians are attacking their trade association which is pushing for the administration of these drugs. But for the Italian paediatricians' society these problems do not exist
According to the Italian Society of Paediatrics, the effects of puberty blockers used to treat girls and boys with gender dysphoria are perfectly REVERSIBLE: this means that if the girl/boy changes her mind about her intention to 'change sex' and suspends the 'therapy', her development will resume normally, without any definitive effects and/or health problems. This is not the case at all. The effects of puberty blocker therapy are by no means 'completely reversible', as has been demonstrated by several [...]

California, transfusion of children
The American state proposes itself as a 'health' tourism destination for minors who are unable to access transition where they live. Exempting the parents and relieving the operators of any risk of litigation in the event of subsequent 'repentance'. Meanwhile in the UK, after the closure of the Tavistock, eyes are on a Scottish clinic where the experimental model (puberty blockers and surgery) continues to be applied
There is a real war going on in the United States over the ideology of gender identity and its promotion in schools. A 'culture war' pitting the elites, who fund and promote gender ideology, against the ordinary people who oppose it (see the Disney case here). While Biden from day one has made many legislative concessions to trans activism at the federal level, the Republicans have intercepted the discontent of the citizenry with various counter-legislation at the state level, such as [...]

Worker yes. Minister no. Woman neither
If there is one thing Italian politicians all agree on, it is the erasure of women, starting with language. While the 'progressive' left erases us with asterisks and schwa -fake-inclusive language that returns everything to the masculine- the right refuses to use the feminine for women of authority in institutions. But words are important because they make reality
Incredibly -and with a secret vote, wickedly conceded by President Casellati- a few days ago, the Senate rejected the Maiorino amendment authorising women in the institutions to be called by their names. This issue has profound political relevance. Many poets over the centuries have made use of poetic licences, i.e. intentional grammatical, metrical and syntactic errors with the intention of emphasising a concept or altering the sonority of the composition. On 27 July 2022 at Palazzo Madama is [...]

UK. Black week for the glittering trans-patriarchy: closed the Tavistock, gender clinic for children. And Allison Bailey wins in court: she was discriminated against for her gender critical views
The ideology of gender identity under attack in UK: NHS orders closure of paediatric transition clinic and points the way to psychological therapies. And Allison Bailey wins employment tribunal case backed by JK Rowling: employer ordered to compensate her for putting her 'under investigation' because of her gender critical views. At the suggestion of Stonewall, who comes out of it with her reputation in tatters
CLOSES TAVISTOCK, CHILDREN'S TRANSITION CLINIC: 'AFFIRMATIVE' APPROACH (DRUGS AND SURGERY) IS DANGEROUS FOR YOUNG PATIENTS The news is sensational: the British National Health Service (NHS) has ordered the closure of the Tavistock & Portman gender clinic for failing to ensure the safety of young patients, most of whom are girls (full article here). The clinic has been accused by several parties of hastily initiating many minors, most of them suffering from spectrum disorders [...].

Argentina: stop neutral language in schools
E' was the first country to introduce gender self-identification. Ten years later it is among the first to ban neutral language in schools as it is 'not even that inclusive: it creates a barrier for children with learning difficulties'
In 2012, Argentina was the first country in the world to introduce self-id or gender self-identification into its legal system. Ten years later, it is one of the first countries to ban neutral language in schools. As taught by the mothers of radical feminism and difference thinking, the neutral is a red herring that actually brings the male point of view back to the centre. If the illusion of the neutral is less noticeable in the English language, it is immediately [...]

Open field, closed lists
The tiger's eye does not want to see that you can reassemble and recombine the line-up all you want, but if the faces and names remain the same you have very little credibility. And if the only goal recognisable to most of the electorate is to bar the way for your political opponent - for once a woman, which makes it all the more surreal - your chances of success are not very good.
Work is in progress on the construction of the large rassemblement or open camp (the wide one has been discontinued). The discussion is only between men (with the partial exception of Emma Bonino) and the cement that holds the coalition project together is 'stopping Meloni': there is little discussion of political programmes, and what Calenda, Fratoianni and Di Maio may have in common is all to be understood. Observers and sociologists of politics scoff to point out that building a project 'against' [...].
