Girls removing their breasts

Transactivist propaganda invites girls uncomfortable with their female form to compress their breasts with special bands (binders), the first step towards the final mastectomy. The same misogynistic violence as the traditional 'breast ironing' practised in Africa. In the UK, the publicly funded charity Mermaids is under indictment for sending binders to teenage girls against parental advice.

Breast stretching (breast ironing) is a horrible practice still in use in some parts of Africa, particularly in the Cameroon. It is the destruction of the teats of teenage girls produced with red-hot instruments -old irons, spatulas, stones or shells- and generally practised by the adult women of the family. The purpose is rend less attractive girls to save them from rape and early pregnancies that could tarnish the honour of the family group. The practice causes serious damage to health of adolescent girls, from cysts to tumours. It is estimated that one in four girls in Cameroon undergoes the treatment, but in some regions, such as the Douala area, more than half of the teenage girls undergo the practice. In some cases, instead of ironing, a less bloody bandaging or dressing (binding).

Without the binder and with the binder

Similar practices are spreading in the West, despite the fact that breast ironing is prosecuted as a crime and child abuse: from bandaging to total surgical removal (top surgery) to which an increasing number of girls are asking to be subjected. The binder is the step preceding the top surgery.

The British trans organisation Mermaids -a 'charity' for gender non-conforming children that has received £500,000 of public funding, is supported by Starbucks and Wagamama as well as Prince Harry and actress Emma Watson- is under investigation after he reportedly offered breast 'binders' to teenage girls against their parents' wishes.

La Charity Commission states that it 'has opened a regulatory compliance case. We have written to the administrators of Mermaids. We are now waiting for their reply.

According to The Telegraph, Mermaids offered a breast-flattening device to a 14-year-old girl whose mother had refused permission to swaddle.

A binder is a spandex corset that compresses the breasts together with the ribs and lungs. It's hard to breathe when you're wearing one, you feel dizzy, you have a headache and you shouldn't wear one during exercise: in fact, the trans advise schools to exempt girls who swaddle from sporting activities. I binder damage developing breast tissue, cause irritation, skin infections, muscle atrophy and even fractured ribs. Yet in the chat room of Mermaids one parent says she wants to buy one to ease her 11-year-old daughter's developmental anxiety.

According to The Telegraph Mermaids' online help centre also assures adolescents that puberty blockers are safe and 'totally reversible'. But the SSN, on its website states: 'Little is known about the long-term side effects of hormones or puberty blockers in children with gender dysphoria'.. It is rather known that the effects of blocker are to a large extent irreversible, which is precisely why it is abruptly curbing their use in the UK, the Great North of Europe, and Australia.

As we all know the moment when your breasts sprout is a delicate transition, You suddenly find yourself a sex object and struggle to take the measure of your new feminine corporeity. You hide, you curve, you often try to stop the process with ruinous weight loss. Now the trans-market offers you another way that is sold as progressive and courageous. You can have your breasts removed tout court, and you eliminate the problem: it is the next step to anorexia.

Top surgery on a 'gender non-conforming' girl

Just search #topsurgery on Instagram and find thousands of short-haired girls sporting bruises and scars, their nipples removed to be sewn back on or tattooed. Some pose with smiling surgeons beside them. One doctor photographs himself with jars of formaldehyde breast tissue. Another in Miami boasts of cutting 40 pairs of breasts a week or, to put it more casually, of 'delete the boobs'.

Most of these surgeries are performed in the United States, where breast removal is a colossal business and children's hospitals will perform mastectomies at the age of 13. No minimum age is required, says Los Angeles paediatrician Johanna Olson-Kennedy, because if a patient regrets it, she can always 'get breasts later'.

Autistic girls would make up one third of those seeking contact with gender clinics.

Binding e top surgery are misogynistic violence that wants to erase women. E should be outlawed such as breast ironing .

Transactivist propaganda must be stopped. Transactional hands off our girls.

Born of a surrogate mother
Olivia Maurel, 32, was born to a surrogate mother and today she is fighting on the front line against the practice, which she describes as 'atrocious' and 'monstrous'. She always knew something was wrong with her family. She suffers from depression, has had problems with alcoholism and has attempted suicide several times. Only recently has she discovered the truth about her origins and that she suffered the trauma of abandonment. "To no child," she says, "should what happened to me ever happen again."
Commercial or 'altruistic' surrogacy must be abolished. These are the words of Olivia Maurel, born in December 1991 in Kentucky by traditional surrogacy (i.e. in which the oocyte also belongs to the 'surrogate mother', ed.), who recounted her experience in a conference at the parliament of the Czech Republic. Today, married with two children in Cannes, 'proud to be a feminist' as we read on her X page, she fights against surrogacy. Her testimony, very valuable as there are still very few [...]

Israel 7 October: Appeal for recognition as mass feminicide
The women victims of the Hamas attack were not killed like all other civilians: they were exposed naked, raped, brutalised, humiliated, decapitated, their bodies burnt and torn to pieces. "We wanted to dirty them," say the terrorists. The violence against these women meets the definition of mass feminicide: from France a petition to international NGOs

No more drugs for children with gender dysphoria!
For many years a pioneer of puberty blocker and hormone-based treatments for 'gender non-conforming' minors, Finnish psychiatrist Riittakerttu Kaltiala now denounces these 'therapies' as dangerous, useless and lacking in scientific evidence. And she calls on doctors around the world to find the courage to break the silence imposed by activist censorship and the media's rubber wall
In Italy there persists an obstinate silence on pharmacological treatments for minors with gender dysphoria (puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, 'gender reassignment' surgery) according to the protocol of so-called gender affirmative therapy. It is not possible to know how many minors have been treated or are undergoing treatment, in how many and which centres they are treated and with what 'success' (or failure) rates. While throughout the Western world the debate has been open for some time and in some countries [...]

This History must end
War is not an invention of women. War reduces us to prey and makes us dumb things. Positioning ourselves -on this side or that side- does not give us peace. Peace is not the interval between one war and another. Peace is not helplessness but an active force that regulates relationships and settles conflicts. We demand that rebellious children recognise their mother's authority and shirk the obligation of acts of domination and overpowering
'War has always been the specific activity of the male and his model of virile behaviour'. Carla Lonzi, Manifesto of Women's Revolt, 1970 War is not our invention, nor is that desperate form of war that is terrorism. Positioning ourselves -on this side or that side- does not give us peace, it disorients and divides us, but we are not allowed any other movement than to seek refuge in an impossible extraneousness. We recognise ourselves with pain in the 'enemy'. [...]

Only women? Can no longer be
In 10 days' time -on 21 October- the UDI Emilia Romagna could be deleted from the Third Sector register unless it agrees to register men as well. This is how the left attacks women's political spaces - starting with the historical association linked to the Resistance - in the name of the trans-feminist 'inclusiveness' promoted by the PD. A huge risk for all feminism. They cannot win
Women's spaces under attack. Not only the physical ones - changing rooms, sports, shelter homes, hospital wards, prisons - but also the symbolic and political ones. If you don't admit men, close down and disappear. Incredible and exemplary is what is happening to UDI, Unione Donne in Italia, an association that has been active for almost 80 years historically linked to the left. Many of the UDIs in Emilia-Romagna are at risk of imminent cancellation from RUNTS, the single national register of the Third Sector, simply for the fact [...]
