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.

Birth from a dead 'surrogate mother
A professor at the University of Oslo proposes using the bodies of women in irreversible comas, which can be damaged without ethical complications, to carry out pregnancies for others. But also men in a vegetative state (so feminists don't get angry) by grafting embryos into their livers. And children? Theme not considered
It may have been inspired by Habla con ella, Pedro Almodovar's film in which the young dancer Alicia, in a coma due to an accident, becomes pregnant by Benigno, the nurse caring for her. Anna Smajdor, Professor of Medical Bioethics University of Oslo, takes up and elaborates on a suggestion made in 2000 by Israeli researcher Rosalie Ber "to circumvent the moral problems of gestational surrogacy" by using women in a persistent vegetative state (PVS) as surrogate wombs. To the practice she gives the [...]

Holland: if you block the development of girls and boys you push them to become trans
The protocol - pausing puberty to allow minors to 'choose' their sex - they invented. But even the Dutch now admit that in 9 out of 10 cases blockers no longer give time to 'decide' but are the start of the transition. A self-fulfilling prophecy. And that the effects of these drugs are by no means reversible
Amsterdam University Clinic UMC, a pioneer in the use of puberty blockers, has admitted that children taking these drugs may find themselves locked into increased medicalisation. The admission comes following the publication earlier this month of a new retrospective study examining 20 years of hormonal interventions known as the 'Dutch protocol', conducted on 1,766 children and adolescents between 1972 and 2018 at the famed Amsterdam clinic and published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine. But [...]

GenerAzioneD, Italian association of parents of minors who define themselves as 'trans', is founded
A guidance and information site to support and accompany mothers and fathers going through this complex experience: testimonies, interviews, and links to contribute to an in-depth debate that today does not find space in the mainstream media
The cultural, apolitical, non-denominational and non-profit association GenerAzioneD has been established. The association's primary aim is to inform about the problems of gender dysphoria/incongruence in children, adolescents and young adults. Through the dissemination of testimonies, news, national and international articles in translation and the promotion of opportunities for discussion, GenerAzioneD aims to foster the transparency necessary to ensure the best possible care for those affected. GenerAzioneD was in fact born from the meeting of some parents who shared the experience of having children [...]

Transgender' children: it's social contagion. Even the largest trans association admits it
Tik Tok, Youtube and others: the president of WPATH, the world association for trans health, forced to admit that influencers play a large part in the epidemic of transitions among minors, a phenomenon denied by Western progressives who brand every alarm as transphobia. But they do not stop pushing for medicalisation and early surgery
The Honourable Alessandro Zan, first signatory of the infamous bill on gender identity, which ended up in the knighthouse, had denied the dizzying increase in cases of transition of girls and boys, calling the news a 'dangerous statement'. In 2021 there were already numerous statistics indicating the extent of the problem, but apparently Zan was not aware of it - which is unacceptable - or pretended not to know, or more likely ideologically believed that the mere fact of posing the question should be considered proof [...].

Sex and gender: JK Rowling's essay
In her text, the writer explains in detail the reasons why she felt the need to address the trans issue, defying the violence of activists. A manifesto-writer for gender critical feminism translated into Italian by Alessandra Asteriti
Attacking JK Rowling can now also be a business. The latest initiative is that of a young Canadian imbecile art book creator who has decided to de-rowling Harry Potter by publishing a special edition of the saga on the cover of which the author's name disappears: $170 per copy for a despicable abuse of power. Let him keep all the copies in stock. Back to the serious stuff: in June 2020 JK Rowling published an essay on her website detailing her position [...].

Femelliste, a gender critical 'sister' platform is born in France
Harassed, insulted, mocked, threatened: French feminists have collected and catalogued the attacks transactivists have suffered for years. And they have set up an information and training site against the dictatorship of transgender ideology
The name of the site is a play on words that cannot be translated into Italian. The site's creators inform that it has already been used by animal feminists such as Posie Parker, Nicole Roelens and the Boucherie Abolition collective. It would make one think of anti-specism, it is actually more and in some respects a little different. 'Femelle' in French means the female animal (for the human one, the same word as woman, femme, is used). Since they fight for sexual rights [...]
