Zan bill: calling a spade a spade

The real name of Zan's bill, blocked a few days ago in the Senate, should have been the bill on gender self-certification and not against homotransphobia. That was the real goal, the self-id, and that is why the law has stalled. Sacrificing the rightful protection of homosexual and transsexual people to the proterity of queer transactivism

A brief comment, after the filing of Zan's bill on homobi-transphobia, intended above all for the non-Italian sisters and friends who ask us to explain; and for those Italian women who have not yet explained their position.clear what happened.

About a year ago, Zan's bill against homobi-transphobia was approved in the Chamber of Deputies. in silence and general inattention. At that stage, the media have completely obscured the debate, The centre-left had voted compactly in favour, which was not repeated when the bill arrived in the Senate for final approval. The centre-left had voted compactly in favour, which was not repeated when the bill reached the Senate for final approval. The truth is that the Most of the MEPs, as some of them (including Stefano Fassina) later acknowledged, did not really understand what they were approving. Convinced to vote for a law against hate crimes against homosexual and transgender people, had not understood that the real core of the law was gender identity, the first step in the direction of self-id.

In Italy there is a law in force, the 164/82not unlike the Gender Recognition Act This law has been updated over the years by a number of court rulings. This law has been updated over the years by a series of rulings: for example, surgical mutilation is no longer required to obtain a sex change on documents. However, it remains necessary to go through the whole process, with expert opinions and a final ruling. What the Zan bill intended to introduce surreptitiously was gender self-certification or self-id.

Ddl Zan: chiamare le cose con il loro nome
Transfeminist Angela Azzaro clarifies that the real goal of the Zan dossier was gender identity or self-identity.

Members of Parliament, we said, did not understand this. Many citizens have not understood it today either. But we radical feminists do.as you can see from the picture above, which is more than a year old. The fight was bare-knuckle, and very hard indeed, particularly on two fronts: 1. breaking the media silence 2. talk to the centre-left - the political area of the vast majority among us - to make changes to the text of the bill.

Ihe first objective has been achieved to some extent.With great effort, we managed to get through, we did a lot of work on the social media, we appeared in the newspapers, we got a few TV appearances and we were heard in the Senate. The second objective, to talk to the proposers, we have completely failed. With very rare exceptions, no one ever wanted to listen to us and confront us, from the first signatory Alessandro Zan, to the secretaries of the left-wing parties (PD, M5S, LeU), to the women of those parties.

An insurmountable wall, an absolute deafness, accompanied by misogynistic contempt: you are a backward minority, you represent no one, and so on.

Our objections were well-founded and reasonable: in addition to the no to gender identity (art.1) we asked that the law not be extended to include misogynistic hatred -women are not a minority to be protected but the majority of mankind, and feminism had never called for such a law, especially when granted by misogynists in favour of womb renting and 'sex work'. We demanded that transactivist propaganda should stay out of schools (Art. 7) and that freedom of expression should be truly guaranteed (Art. 4).

We even proposed that return to an earlier bill (Scalfarotto-Annibali) that would have truly guaranteed the protection of homosexual and transgender people.

Our arguments have been taken up and used by right-wing parties and moderates: it was really surprising to hear Judith Butler and transhumanism mentioned by Conservative MPs. But as we have seen have also made inroads with a small part of the left, which ultimately did not support the bill, lacking the necessary numbers to proceed in the Senate approval process. This was our victory.

We have the There is a well-founded suspicion that some of the proposers themselves wanted to stop the law, which, if approved, would have opened up scenarios that would have been very difficult to manage and justify in the face of a public opinion that was largely unfavourable to self-id, but still unaware that that was the real aim of the bill.

E It is a real pity that homosexual and transgender people did not get the protection they were asking for because of the arrogance of queer transactivism: they are the real homophobes and transo-phobes.

For us and for all, a lesson: don't give up, buti. Today we say this especially to the Spanish and German sisters struggling with similar laws. We never thought we would make it, with his bare hands, against a universal mainstream in favour of the dlBut we did not let ourselves be discouraged and achieved our goal, albeit bitterly. And above all, Demand that things be called by their name. Do not allow a law whose purpose is to introduce self-id to be presented as something else, masking the real objective behind more reasonable and agreed proposals.

Whenever you see gender identity mentioned, prick up your ears, and get ready to fight.

How to convince progressives to give up gender
Terrified of transactivists and worried about sounding 'right-wing', left-wingers support the transition of minors even in the absence of studies showing that 'affirmative therapy' works and promotes the well-being of gender non-conforming girls and boys. "But everyone has a right to evidence-based medicine," argue some liberals determined to "break the spell". And they start DIAG -Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender- to convince democrats in the US and around the world that continuing on this path is wrong and dangerous. For children and for the left. An article by Bernard Lane
A new movement of US Democrats wants to find out how to break the spell of gender ideology and bring the party back to the liberal values of science and reason. Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender (DIAG) launched a project yesterday on X Space (Twitter) to commission research on how to more effectively reach out to left-wing voters who believe that science is now in favour of 'gender-affirming' medicalisation of gender non-conforming youth. "The only way to end this [...]

New York Times: Strong doubts about hormones for children with gender dysphoria
The world's leading woke newspaper has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, starting with the indecent treatment of JK Rowling. Today the paper changes course and in a very long article criticises the 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers, hormones and surgery) for trans minors, giving a voice to some hitherto censored and ostracised detransitioners. Because by now even many Democratic voters have strong doubts. And there is a risk of losing many readers: "get woke, go broke".
For years, the New York Times has been the world's leading woke newspaper and has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, jubilating critical voices. The treatment of JK Rowling is exemplary. In 2022 a very violent subscription campaign invited people to imagine Harry Potter without its creator: the ultimate in cancel culture (see here) A misogynistic and aggressive gesture - the initiative turned out to be a boomerang and many female subscribers threatened to cancel -. A few months ago The Daily published [...].

Men IntintA and other wonders
The health of 'Marco', a trans FtM who is five months pregnant with testosterone, and that of her baby are the least of the problems. What matters to the liberal press talking about an 'anthropological revolution' is whether 'Marco' is to be called mother or father. But only a woman can give birth even if at the registry office her name is male. In this nothing has changed since the dawn of time. In the meantime, the trans front is losing ground: in one year, the number of members of WPATH, the largest transgender health organisation, has fallen by 60 per cent.
La Repubblica online headlines with a triple somersault about the 'young man who got pregnant': pregnant is not dared even at the transphilic GEDI group. The story is that of 'Marco', a girl undergoing testosterone therapy to look more like a man: beard, graver voice -not to 'become male' because sex cannot be changed and every single cell will remain damned XX-. 'Marco' had retained his uterus and ovaries and following a hetero sexual relationship (a [...]

New Hampshire: No more 'sex change' surgery on minors
The US state has passed a bill banning surgeons from performing operations on under-18 year olds such as the removal of ovaries and breasts for females and penises and testicles for males. The bill states that these operations violate the patient's 'informed consent' and points out that studies have not shown a decrease in the suicide risk of minors after the operations. On the contrary: the danger increases
New Hampshire is preparing to ban under-18s from undergoing sex-change operations. Last Thursday, the New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a bill to this effect, also with the help of some Democratic members. House Bill 619 prohibits doctors from performing 'any genital gender reassignment surgery', i.e. the removal of the uterus, ovaries and breasts in the case of women; testicles and penis for men, to anyone in the [...]

Puberty should perhaps be stopped at ALL: Transhuman drift of the World Health Organisation
In a veritable Christmas blitz, the WHO announces that it wants to draw up new gender-affirming guidelines and sets up a panel made up of three-quarters transactivists in favour of medicalising children. Preferably all of them, even those who do not suffer from dysphoria. Because choosing what sex you are must become a universal right. An international petition calls for a halt to the initiative
A few days before Christmas, the World Health Organisation (WHO) announced that it will develop new guidelines on the 'health of trans and gender diverse people', with a focus on access to hormones and surgery (what it calls 'gender-inclusive care.) ') and legal recognition of gender self-identification (self id). The WHO also announced that it has formed a group to develop the guidelines. This expert group includes many World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) apparatchiks, including [...]

Germany also considers a stop to hormones for girls with 'gender dysphoria'
As one of the most permissive laws on the transition of minors is about to be passed, a Bundestag document puts the brakes on and urges caution. Because there is insufficient scientific evidence that affirmative drug therapy increases the well-being of adolescents and that its effects are reversible. A serious and in-depth debate is needed, which has so far been prevented by transaggressive activism and the pressure of the LGBT+ lobby on politics and the media.
After years of resistance and battle by radical feminism around the world - as well as by self-organised parents resisting transpropaganda, such as the association GenerAzione D - the issue of minors undergoing transition with puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and surgery has finally come to the attention of the Italian Parliament. For some time now, the issue has been the subject of a bitter critical debate that has spread from Sweden and the UK to the entire Great North, as far as Australia, New Zealand and the United States [...].
