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.

Prostitution 'clients' know full well that they are committing violence
Research on sex buyers shows that men are fully aware that prostitution is violence, that criminal organisations keep women in fear and that there is no 'regulation' that holds. But they only stop if they risk a criminal conviction, as is the case in Sweden, Norway, Canada, France, Ireland, Israel and other countries that have introduced the abolitionist model. Otherwise, they continue to consider date rape as their right
by Julie Bindel Germany is known as the brothel of Europe. It is a hard-won title. With more than 3,000 brothels across the country, and 500 in Berlin alone, its sex trade is worth more than £11 billion a year. Prostitution, in all its forms, has been legal in Germany since the end of World War II. Recently, however, attitudes are changing. People and politicians are asking the government to take notice of the so-called 'pimp state' and [...]

Iranian Beauty
In Iran, female beauty becomes the lever of a real revolution: nothing like the mortification-commodification of bodies that is propagated as freedom in the West. The struggle to be able to be a woman reveals the'hypocrisy of the queer
It is now almost two months since the Iranian girls' revolt against the veil began, an irrepressible wave that every day produces new images, new content, a breath of fresh air compared to certain narratives about women in the Islamic world, but also a mirror that reveals how much of an artefact there is behind so many politically correct watchwords of intersectional feminism or transfeminism. First, the veil is not a free choice, nor is that feminist empowerment about which we have been bombarded by [...]

Belgium, new feminicide law. To be studied
In Europe, male violence is the leading cause of death for women between the ages of 16 and 44. Belgium equips itself with a new law that for the first time legally defines feminicides in order to develop policies based on official statistics. Keeping in mind that violence is a device of male domination
Stop the slaughter of women. This is the meaning of the new 'law on the prevention of and fight against feminicides, gender-based crimes and the violence that precedes them' adopted at first reading in the Council of Ministers on 25 October in Belgium. Deposed by the Secretary of State for Gender Equality, Sarah Schlitz (Ecolo/Verdi), the framework law for the first time legally defines feminicides in order to develop combat policies based on official statistics. And in [...]

England: new guidelines for 'trans' minors
While Spain is about to approve the horrifying Ley Trans, which allows the transition of girls from the age of 12 even if their parents oppose it, the English health service closes once and for all with the so-called pharmacological 'affirmative approach' (puberty blockers) practised for years and points to psychological treatment as the priority route. And in Italy? For the Italian Society of Paediatrics, these drugs do not cause any problems and their effects are completely 'reversible', a fact denied by several studies
The English health service (NHS) has published a new draft of guidelines for the treatment of children with gender dysphoria (full text here), pending the results of the Cass Review, an independent enquiry commissioned by the British health minister and led by paediatrician Hilary Cass (see here), which will lead to a complete restructuring of services dedicated to gender non-conforming children. After the closure of the Tavistock clinic -which we told you about here-, NHS puts a definitive end to the so-called [...]

'Destroy women's rights': JK Rowling against the Scottish premier and her trans law
As in Spain, feminism in Scotland fights against a law wanted by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon introducing gender self-determination without any medical diagnosis and lowering the age for access to 16. And this time too, the Harry Potter author stands by women, girls and children
JK Rowling takes a photo of herself wearing a t-shirt that reads 'Nicola Sturgeon, destroyer of women's rights' to support women protesting in front of the Scottish Parliament against the controversial gender recognition reform bill wanted by Scotland's First Minister. Activists from For Women Scotland gathered in front of the Scottish Parliament this morning for a demonstration against the bill promoted by Sturgeon, which would make gender self-determination easier - we have [...]

The Iranians are fighting for us too
Women in Iran are oppressed, violated and killed precisely because of their bodies as women. And their revolt could free everyone and everyone. Is'the woke West of'gender identity and 'freedom of the veil' ready to understand and support this revolution that blows for us too? Woman, life, freedom
In the uncertain and ever-changing geopolitical order of our time, in the midst of a global political agenda that from right to left forgets women, betraying, albeit in different ways, female exclusivity and the richness of sexual difference, the struggle of Iranian women has something epic, something moving. The killing of Mahsa Amini shows how the issue of the 'veil as freedom' is the quintessence of intellectual dishonesty, of logical fallacy, of an age-old lie. To 22-year-old Mahsa, the desire to 'feel the [...]
