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seem to trust her, ask her for advice on how to be in the world and how to be chicin times when such words sound so outdated.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 It is made of real womenof mothers and old aunts who are real, complaining, trivial, outdated; women who appear depressing and not at all glamorous to uswith low self-esteem, whom their daughters would never choose as role models.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.

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

Who cooked Adam Smith's dinner? For a RadFem economic theory, speech by Sheila Jeffreys
The traditional economy based on the 'rational' homo oeconomicus never takes into account the base of the iceberg: the huge amount of unpaid female labour without which the system simply would not stand. The necessary change does not come from the inclusion of more women in a model that is based on aggression, gambling and risk, but from a new paradigm that places the value of people, relationships and care at the centre
At a recent seminar organised by Women's Declaration International as part of its Radical Feminist Perspectives series, Sheila Jeffreys -former professor of political science at the University of Melbourne and one of the founders of the global WDI network- gave a talk on Rad Fem Economic Theory (the entire meeting can be viewed here). Jeffrey started from a text she wrote in 2010, on the heels of the global financial crisis. It was called 'Who Cooked Adam Smith's Dinner', whose thought completely omitted the [...]

Spain: woke sex also among the reasons for the end of Podemos
Ley Trans. Only Yes is Yes' law that reduced penalties for sex offenders. And now also a Manifesto for Sex Education for All* that jeopardises the safety of girls and boys. The spirit is always the same: a queer sexuality promoted by outgoing minister Irene Montero. Which, however, voters and electors apparently do not like. An analysis by lecturer Juana Gallego, feminist affected by the cancel culture
In yesterday's local elections in Spain, the left lost disastrously - as in Italy, for that matter. In particular, there was the stinging defeat of Podemos, which in many regions almost went extinct. In the analyses of the Spanish vote, perhaps not enough emphasis is given to two manifesto-laws of Podemos, and in particular of the transfeminist minister Irene Montero: the 'Only Yes is Yes' law, which reduced penalties for sexual crimes, and the Ley Trans, which [...]

Transgender: the victory of Puer Aeternus
An evolution of the unisex who struggled against gender stereotypes, the 'gender' phenomenon among adolescents expresses the attempt to escape the biological debt-obligation and the need to feel disengaged from stepmotherly nature. But the transgender person is by no means his or her own creator: if anything, he or she is subservient to a totipotent 'spirit' that enslaves the mind and psyche. And the gay movement that advocates puerile simulation fails to see that it is precisely homosexual identity that comes off worst
Transgender ideology goes beyond the transsexual claim of the construction of sex by subtraction or addition of something from a matrix, because it challenges the very existence of the male and the female, and especially the latter, making the female gender a product of educational norms, DIY craftsmanship, beauty shop, chemical laboratory, surgical table. Both appeal to the 'truth' of the omnipotent creation of the sexes, destitute of actual reality. Young women in particular are unfortunately fertile ground [...].

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 we know, there are words that can no longer be used, especially in international scientific documents and studies. At the top of the list of tabooed words are all the terms that have to do with female difference understood as the exclusive possibility of giving birth to human beings, and thus: 'woman' -if biologically understood and not open to define persons not born women-, 'mother' and 'maternal', 'breast', with reference to breast-feeding, and so on. The operation on language aims to qualify [...].

Legislation against violence against women should talk about sex and not 'gender identity': open letter to the European Parliament
Violence against women will not be combated if the texts of laws and treaties do not clearly refer to sex and not 'gender'. We join feminist and gender critical groups in an appeal to MEPs who will vote on the Commission's anti-violence proposal: write clearly in the text that women and girls are the female sex and leave no room for gender ideology
We, too, signed the letter to the European Commission on combating violence against women and domestic abuse drafted by WORIADS, a coalition of gender-critical citizens whose aim is to inform and raise awareness of the dangers of gender identity in the European institutions. The letter demands that European regulations on violence against women clearly recognise the category of biological sex. Below is the full text that will be sent to the members of the European Parliament who will vote on the [...].

The Bundestag is preparing to vote on a proposal modelled on the horrible Spanish law that allows free choice of gender even for minors with a simple self-declaration at the registry office (in addition to the possibility of changing one's mind several times). Also in the front line here is a left-wing woman counterpart of Irene Montero: the Green Minister for Women's Affairs Lisa Paus. But the opinion of the Federal Constitutional Court, which expresses many doubts about the deletion of the category 'sex', will be needed.
What is a woman? The answer that Justice Minister Buschmann (FDP, Liberal Democratic Party) and Women's Affairs Minister Lisa Paus (Greens, pictured) give to this question is: a woman is anyone who claims to be a woman. This is the core of the 'bill on self-determination in gender registration' that both ministries have now presented. With a simple declaration at the registry office, everyone will in future be able to change their sex: from male to [...]
