Girls who love Drusilla

The chic lady does not really exist. She is just a character en travesti, albeit with her own biography and style. But as a "woman by choice" and not by destiny, she is very popular with young people and is considered a model of femininity. Even if she is a man.

Yesterday evening Drusilla Foer joined Amadeus at the Sanremo festival with great success, with the usual corollary of gossip to whet the viewers' appetite. Gianluca Gori, the talented actor who gives life to Drusilla, she is neither trans, nor non-binary, nor a drag queen, but perpetuates the tradition of shows en travesti of which Paolo Poli has been a school leader.

The character seems to live a life of its own in relation to the actor playing it, has its own biography to tell (birth, youth, love, marriage) and uhis vision of the world.

Drusilla is therefore really a "character' in the Pirandellian sense, a little bit Franca Valeri and a little bit, as we said, Paolo Poli, and has many young fans. Even if Drusilla is not young at all. Even her name betrays an ancient coat of arms, a Roman name, 'daughter of Drusus', the furthest thing from a young girl's cultural horizon; an algid, compassionate beauty, old-style, bourgeois manners and tailored clothes, the thinness and class of a 1950s mannequin, all very bon-ton.

Yet they like it, and very young girls, judging by social media; teenage girls seem to trust her, ask her for advice on how to be in the world and how to be chicin times when such words sound so outdated. They talk to Drusilla as they would talk to a snobbish old aunt. Maybe not the mother, but the aunt who has no children and knows a lot about life can be an excellent advisor.

But Drusilla does not exist, the biography itself is a script, there is nothing true.

Why do the girls follow you?

Why Drusilla is not a woman, she is a man. Better, she is not a woman 'by birth' - the ultimate in banality and undesirability- but she is a 'woman by choice'., how much more glamour there is. And so we play along, we believe in the pretense of her style advice, she too appears to be wrapped in an air of "fabulousness"She is not the bigoted relative, she has experience and strong shoulders, she can even afford white hair.

How to talk to an imaginary friend, how to write to Father Christmas, we know he doesn't exist but we like him for that very reason. Because reality is boring. It is made of real womenof mothers and old aunts who are real, complaining, trivial, outdated; women who appear depressing and not at all glamorous to uswith low self-esteem, whom their daughters would never choose as role models. Because those women have not chosen to be. So they can only be sloppy and frustrated housewives, wives and mothers who are grey and colourless, banal and bigoted, nn spite of the fact that today's mothers do not correspond to certain stereotypes, which survive in the minds of their daughters.

In feminist world, very similar dynamics can be observed.: often the cut between generations is sharp, young women, not just teenagers, seem to feel a dull resentment towards political and symbolic 'mothers' whom they blame
any error or oversight, animated by a strong compensation syndrome which is a bottomless pit.

Women with more experience of life and activism who sometimes really didn't want or know how to 'become mothers' of younger women, perhaps themselves in a similar dynamic with their own mothers. Difficult to create the circle of trust, establish links, recognise genealogies. Walls of misunderstandings and unspoken words resist.

Better then to look elsewhere. Lhe same things said by a man seem more authoritative and credible, you can trust them, they love us and understand us.

They, if they are women, it is because they have chosen it, and not suffered it as a bitter and undesirable fate.

DRUSILLA/2 (THE DAY AFTER)

MISOGYNY TEST
 
What we are seeing on RaiUno these days constitutes a test of terminal misogyny.
Therefore it is good and interesting, because says where we are.
A man -a handsome man in his fifties, elegant, cultured and an excellent actor-. is the real woman of the moment. He does.
The others, however, those who have had the misfortune to be born women: dull, boring, whiny, obviously homophobic... -Iva Zanicchi, unjustly accused- in short, the lumpenproletariat of womanhood.
 
He: authoritative ladychic, worldly use, that's true femininity.
Them: learn from her how to be women, those clothes, that allure!
It's all an ola: did you hear the speech about uniqueness?
A real queen! How charming!
Learn from men what a real woman is!
If women are needed in this world, we will make them ourselves.
 
And all those women born women who bow down, radiant slaves.
 
p.s: misogyny comes before any homophobia. That is the matrix. Remember it
 
Marina Terragni

Why Italy did not sign the EU declaration on LGBTIQ rights (it did sign another one though)
The declaration against homolesbobtransphobia signed in Europe by all the member states passed into silence. Great media clamour, on the other hand, over a second declaration not signed by Italy because it is strongly unbalanced on gender identity on the model of the Zan fu-ddl: here are all the critical points
A few days ago, on the occasion of the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) in Europe, the following resolution was passed unanimously - including Italy, therefore: 1498th Meeting of the Committee of Ministers (7 May 2024) - EU Statement ahead of the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia on 17 May 2007.05.2024 Press and information team of the Delegation to the COUNCIL OF EUROPE in StrasbourgI have the honour to speak on behalf of the European Union and its [...]

UK: gender identity will no longer be discussed at school
A new crackdown by the Sunak government after the Cass report, which also warns of the risks of social transition of minors, the so-called 'alias identity' that has already been adopted by many Italian schools: in the classroom, it will no longer be taught that one can change sex and sex education will be calibrated according to age. And never without parental consent
After years and years of transactivists from associations such as Stonewall and Mermaids making the rounds with their sex education courses in English schools of all levels, Rishi Sunak's government announced today with Education Minister Gillian Keegan new mandatory guidelines for schoolchildren and students on these issues. Classrooms will no longer teach that you can change your gender identity, as has been the case until now [...]

From Gaza to western delivery rooms, Judith Butler sees fascists everywhere
Fascists, of course, we gender-critical feminists too, 'allies of the right and the Vatican'. The Californian intellectual, renouncing all philosophical subtlety, compiles a political agenda that coincides with the platform of the university students in struggle. And he calls for an alliance between trans people, antifa, the pro-Pal movement, the homeless, black people, migrants and even women - understood as one of many minorities - to build 'a radical democracy inspired by the ideals of socialism'. An account of the Bologna leg of his triumphant European tour
Perhaps today one could speak of the 'Butler Agenda': its platform coincides perfectly with the platform of struggle of the-students throughout the West, with little certainty as to whether the chicken or the egg was born first. Certainly Judith Butler is to all intents and purposes the mother of Gender Theory to which these student(s) (a minority anyway) enthusiastically adhere; in turn these student(s) with their mobilisations are a source of inspiration for Butler, their platforms are also a [...]

Not-Mother's Day
Natural motherhood is right-wing, biotech motherhood is left-wing because it is thought of as a right and not suffered as destiny: the diatribe on this issue between radical feminism and transfeminism could be summarised in this way. It's anything but new, but it has become radicalised. Not least because the context has changed so much: a baby boom is one thing, births at an all-time low is another
The other day Minister Eugenia Roccella was prevented from saying what she had to say, right or wrong, at the States General of Natality. The students who were protesting against her were allowed to express their demands - one of their delegates went on stage, and she also included Gaza in her speech, right or wrong - but this was evidently not enough because the minister was prevented from speaking anyway. Perhaps I am wrong, but if I were convinced of the [...]

Trans surgery increases suicide risk
A very recent study of 90 million patients shows that trans-operated people run a 'significantly higher risk of suicide, death, self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder' and require psychiatric support. Thus, the completion of the long and arduous transition with 'affirmative' surgery does not ensure the achievement of the hoped-for well-being
"Gender affirmation surgery is associated with a significantly higher risk of suicide, death, suicide/self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder than control groups in this real-world database. Since suicide is one of the most common causes of death among adolescents and middle-aged individuals, it is clear that we must work to prevent these unfortunate outcomes. This further reinforces the need for comprehensive psychiatric care in the years following surgery for [...]

Saman: 'their culture' as a mitigating factor
The girl's marriage was 'arranged and not forced' and in the judgement 'the culture of the offender must also be taken into account': the reasons for the sentence (signed by female judges) for the brutal murder of the young Pakistani girl leave one bewildered. As well as the mother's self-sexism that would be the material executor of the crime. At this rate, according to Unicef projections, girls will continue to be sold to men for at least the next 300 years
Pictured is a poster with Saman's face composed of photos of many women victims of male violence. The story of Saman Abbas is an open wound. Killed by her family three years ago, her concealed body found more than a year after her death. At the beginning of this year, the funeral, with great public participation. A few days ago came the grounds for the verdict in the first-instance trial of Saman's family last December: life imprisonment to [...].
