Debate on #ddlZan organised by PD Lazio. Together with the first signatory Alessandro Zan, Monica Cirinnà, the head of the PD Women's Conference Cecilia D'Elia e only one critical voice, that of Valeria Fedeli.
The juice: Zan in unprecedented dialogue mode -which we hope to finally take advantage of- and against violent language, OK; Cecilia D'Elia, convincedly pro-Zan, informs that Pd feminism is modernly 'intersectional'. (D'Elia has probably not yet registered the rising wave, far more up to date worldwide, of the gender critical radical feminism, give her time); Faithful complains that there has been little or no debate in the PD and attacks the undue inclusion of misogyny, inviting acceptance and broadening of the discussion and warning that the Senate 'is not the House' (read: the numbers are not so certain).
But thehe critics' prize goes to Monica Cirinnà, who complains that the position of critical female colleagues (Valente and Concia) is exploited by the right, be careful when speaking. And he concedes: OK, let's discuss it, but the text that came out of the Chamber of Deputies cannot be touched. The Zan ddl is the same and will not change..
Now: aside from the fact that bicameralism is not an opinion, and that the bill was passed in the House in semi-clandestinity (it was theautumn of intensive care units that were filling up againpeople had other things on their minds and the maistream media went along with the silence), apparently even the people are starting to make noise. The testimonials OK, the little hands with the hashtag #ddl Zan too, but there's something about this bill that doesn't add up, we'd like to understand, we'd like to know...you can smell burning.
These are the usual problems of democracy, ties and strings. But Cirinnà's attitude is literally masterly, genre ".I am me" etc., she decided so, you can talk freely but then you do what I say. Ladies, if you have any reservations about Zan you'd better shut up. It would be interesting to know where such a arroganceit would be nice if you could explain to us where this seigniorial posture is based, but every attempt at confrontation has failed, with her as with Zan.
Cirinnà should consider that concern about the contents of the bill is mounting exponentially, whichhen people realise that the core of the law is an undefined perception - gender identity - begins to suspect and raise antennae, and you want Fedez. What if 94% of Britons said NO to gender identity -and the British government took note, also ending those LGBT courses in schools. there is little reason to believe that the Italians see it differently.
And then maybe it's true, this certainty of numbers in the Senate is not there, in which case it would be a slip for the PD, and more caution would be advisable.
