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seem to trust her, ask her for advice on how to be in the world and how to be chicin times when such words sound so outdated.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 It is made of real womenof mothers and old aunts who are real, complaining, trivial, outdated; women who appear depressing and not at all glamorous to uswith low self-esteem, whom their daughters would never choose as role models.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

UK. Cass report: no more affirmative therapy for children with gender-related problems
Pediatrician Hilary Cass' final report on child transitions comes out: offering affirmative therapy was a failure. There is no evidence on the effectiveness of puberty blockers, which should never be prescribed except in rare cases. Hormones of the opposite sex should not be given before the age of 18, and even between 18 and 25 caution should be exercised. A definitive watershed
The long-awaited final report of the Cass Review, an independent review chaired by paediatrician Hilary Cass on public health services for children and young people with 'gender dysphoria', came out this morning. Its final report and recommendations were presented to NHS England. Here are the highlights. The condemnation for affirmative therapy is final, and determined by the absolute lack of evidence that puberty blockers and opposite-sex hormones bring real benefits to children suffering from 'gender incongruence [...]

Hormone therapies on children: doctors' insurances start to run away
The risk of million-dollar claims by minors undergoing irreversible treatment who regret the 'affirmative therapy' is too high: this is why some insurance companies no longer feel like covering 'gender medicine' under their policies
Those who resist the market for the transition of gender non-conforming girls and boys know very well that almost always the turning point - as was the case in the UK with Keira Bell and in the US with Chloe Cole - is the lawsuit brought by a former child-or treated-or with blockers and hormones against the doctors who administered the 'therapy': the detransitioners' side is decisive. Then the game becomes money versus money: the money collected by the gender clinics versus the money they end up [...].

Also in Wyoming stop the transition of minors
It is the 24th US state to ban drug and surgical treatments on the bodies of gender non-conforming girls and boys. Doctors and practitioners who continue to prescribe affirmative therapy will lose their licences. Decisive in the passage of the law was the testimony - and legal action - of detransitioner Chloe Cole. A regulation banning trans-indoctrination in schools was also approved.
From next 1 July, hormone treatments and gender transition surgery of minors will be banned in Wyoming. With the passage of the law, Senate File 99, Wyoming will join 23 other US states, from Alabama to West Virginia, that have banned or severely restricted gender-affirming medicine on minors. Under the law, doctors, pharmacists and other health care providers who provide gender-affirming care could have their licences suspended or revoked. Opposed by Governor Mark Gordon, [...]

The UK has decided: no more puberty blockers for children with dysphoria. It is the ultimate turning point (in memory of Yarden Silveira, 1998-2021, killed by 'sex change')
Not only the stop at the Tavistock Clinic: no British centre for 'gender non-conforming' girls and boys will be able to prescribe puberty blockers any more. The approach will have to be solely psychological: a resounding turning point that will have knock-on effects all over the world, including Italy. One of the biggest scandals in the history of medicine is finally coming to an end: will someone pay for the thousands of irreversibly damaged minors? Recalling here one among them who lost his life because of the unscrupulousness of doctors and surgeons
The British National Health Service (NHS) announces that PUBERTY BLOCKERS WILL NO LONGER BE ADMINISTRATED TO MINORS WITH GENDER Dysphoria: this is huge and heart-warming news after years and years of fighting on the front line. So not only is the dedicated service of the Tavistock Clinic in London closing, but no centre for the treatment of minors with dysphoria will use puberty blockers any more. The decision, described as 'historic', will have knock-on effects worldwide, [...].

WPATH scandal: 'therapies' for children with dysphoria are improvised and prescribed without real consent
The World Professional Transgender Health is considered the leading global scientific and medical authority on 'gender medicine': over the past decades its standards of care have shaped the guidelines, policies and practices of governments, medical associations, public health systems and private clinics worldwide, including the WHO. But leaked documents reveal the neglect of children -including children with severe mental disorders- subjected to improvised treatments, without taking into account the long-term consequences and without being sure they were clear about what they were doing
The news manages to shock even those who have long fought against affirmative therapy - puberty blockers, hormones and surgery - for gender non-conforming minors, such as psychoanalyst David Bell who exposed the scandal at the Tavistock Clinic in London: 'Even for me the contents of these files are shocking and disturbing,' he said. "The files suggest that some WPATH members are aware that gender-affirming treatments sometimes cause very serious harm and [...]

Bodies that don't count: Judith Butler returns to the fray
In a crowded lecture at the London School of Economics, the Californian philosopher and pioneer of gender theory reiterated the cornerstones of her thinking: the materiality of sex does not exist, women do not have the exclusive right to be women and must open up to other subjects starting with Queers and pro-Palestinians, transfeminism is anti-capitalist and anti-fa for a common fight against "fascist passions". And it attacks gender-critical feminism "allied with the Right".
At one point, it seemed that Judith Butler had changed her ways. The Californian philosopher, one of the most influential of the last thirty years, a theorist of gender performativity, who had arrived along a radical constructivist path to the negation of the material consistency of gendered bodies to the point of problematising and/or dismantling the subject 'woman' itself, had acknowledged: "My definition gave rise to two contrasting interpretations: for one, everyone chooses their own gender; for the second, we are all women. had recognised: 'my definition gave rise to two conflicting interpretations: for the first, everyone chooses their own gender; for the second, we are all completely determined by gender norms [...].
