Locked in a fence. Like in Kabul

Open letter to Mayor Gualtieri and other competent authorities on the incredible scene of discrimination in the Centocelle district in Rome: women isolated like unclean animals for the end of Ramadan celebrations. Who gave permission for this unacceptable demonstration? And what steps will be taken against this misogynistic barbarity?

Chiuse in un recinto. Come a Kabul

To the Mayor of Rome Roberto Gualtieri

To the President of City Hall V Mauro Caliste

At Equal Opportunities Commission of the Municipality of Rome

and p.c.

To the Minister of Equal Opportunities and Family Eugenia Roccella

To the Minister of the Interior Matteo Piantedosi

Dear Mayor, dear President, dear members of the Equal Opportunities Commission,

we manifest dismay and bewilderment in view of the way in which the Municipality V of the Capital -Piazza dei Mirti, Centocelle district, a few metres from the school named after Artemisia Gentileschi- the celebrations at the end of Ramadan, women locked in an enclosure like unclean animals to isolate them and prevent them from looking at the men intent on prayer.

An 'Afghan' scene in the heart of Rome which cannot be justified by any principle of 'tolerance' and peaceful coexistence between religious and cultural differences.

We ask the authorities whether they had been informed of this set-up, whether they granted permits for the installation of such fences on public land, and what steps they intend to take against those who conceived and organised this unacceptable and humiliating scene of discrimination.

Awaiting kind and prompt reply

From Gaza to western delivery rooms, Judith Butler sees fascists everywhere
Fascists, of course, we gender-critical feminists too, 'allies of the right and the Vatican'. The Californian intellectual, renouncing all philosophical subtlety, compiles a political agenda that coincides with the platform of the university students in struggle. And he calls for an alliance between trans people, antifa, the pro-Pal movement, the homeless, black people, migrants and even women - understood as one of many minorities - to build 'a radical democracy inspired by the ideals of socialism'. An account of the Bologna leg of his triumphant European tour
Perhaps today one could speak of the 'Butler Agenda': its platform coincides perfectly with the platform of struggle of the-students throughout the West, with little certainty as to whether the chicken or the egg was born first. Certainly Judith Butler is to all intents and purposes the mother of Gender Theory to which these student(s) (a minority anyway) enthusiastically adhere; in turn these student(s) with their mobilisations are a source of inspiration for Butler, their platforms are also a [...]

Saman: 'their culture' as a mitigating factor
The girl's marriage was 'arranged and not forced' and in the judgement 'the culture of the offender must also be taken into account': the reasons for the sentence (signed by female judges) for the brutal murder of the young Pakistani girl leave one bewildered. As well as the mother's self-sexism that would be the material executor of the crime. At this rate, according to Unicef projections, girls will continue to be sold to men for at least the next 300 years
Pictured is a poster with Saman's face composed of photos of many women victims of male violence. The story of Saman Abbas is an open wound. Killed by her family three years ago, her concealed body found more than a year after her death. At the beginning of this year, the funeral, with great public participation. A few days ago came the grounds for the verdict in the first-instance trial of Saman's family last December: life imprisonment to [...].

A few words to Mr Gennarone (he doesn't deserve any more)
The essence of fascism is to prevent anyone from speaking out. Whoever calls a woman ****** intends to intimidate, devalue and above all silence her. Ergo: a sexist cannot call himself an anti-fascist because sexism is incompatible with antifascism.
A few words to rapper Gennarone, author of fine lyrics (e.g. 'Stile foggiano, la mia terra la amo, dall'appennino dauno alle terre del Gargano. Take my hand ready for the journey through the land we live in') who during the 1 May concert in Foggia among many other things said that 'Italy is living in the shadow of fascism thanks to that ***** of Giorgia Meloni'. Just to remind him that: a) the essence of all fascism and totalitarianism is to prevent anyone from [...].

On abortion only propaganda: 'Fake amendment, good for election campaign'
The recently approved paragraph authorising pro-life associations to enter counselling centres does not actually add to or change what is already provided for in Law 194. Marina Terragni and Francesca Izzo explain. And Pro Vita also hastens to clarify: we will not enter the consultatories. The topic is good for the political clash in view of the European elections. But the law remains as it is
It is sad to have to talk about abortion on command: abortion is a complex and painful experience for the vast majority of women. "For whose pleasure am I aborting?": Carla Lonzi summarised the issue in this way. It is very sad that the issue is agitated in the election campaign, on both sides, and that we feel obliged to say something. In recent days the right wing has proposed and pushed through with confidence an amendment to the PNRR that would authorise pro-life [...].

Gender is a battlefield
Joe Biden in the midst of campaigning replaces the word sex with gender identity. Germany and Sweden pass new trans laws allowing self-identification (self-id): German parents will be able to decide what sex their newborn child is regardless of whether it has a penis or a vagina. Meanwhile after England also Scotland bans puberty blockers for 'non-compliant' minors. And in Spain, one year after Ley Trans came into force, 'sex changes' have increased by 400 per cent. Even some 30 bearded soldiers have declared themselves women. The lobby pushes furiously and the chaos is unspeakable
While also in Scotland, after England, 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers followed by hormones and surgery) will no longer be prescribed to minors, a decision taken following the publication of the sensational Cass Review, in the United States President Biden - or rather, his firmly Obamian administration - in the midst of the presidential election campaign in November has effectively abolished Title IX of the Education Amendments in force since 1972. The amendment mandated that no one on the basis of sex could be excluded from [...]

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, [...].
