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 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.

Los Angeles: queer clubs on families
Fathers and mothers peacefully demonstrating against the Pride event held at their children's school - kindergarten and primary schools - were physically assaulted with fists and baseball bats by Lgbtq+ and Antifa activists. In California you can no longer decide anything about your children's education
The pictures you see come from Los Angeles, where last Friday a group of parents protested against an LGBTQ Pride event organised at school for kindergarten and primary schools children. A group of left-wing extremists arrived to disrupt the event and attacked the parents with baseball bats and fists, starting a violent brawl that ended only after the police intervened. On the eve of the 'PRIDE assembly' organised at the Saticoy [...]

CIAMS, STOP SURROGACY NOW, FINRRAGE, LA JAPAN COALITION and other associations. And together with them such eminent figures of international feminism as SYLVIANE AGACINSKI, GENA COREA and PHYLLIS CHESLER. Who together with us are asking the Italian parliamentarians to approve the law that will pass the Chamber of Deputies on 19 June.
Rete per l'Inviolabilità del Corpo Femminile (Network for the Inviolability of the Female Body), Radfem Italia, and FINAARGIT (International Feminist Network Against Artificial Reproduction, Gender Ideology and Transhumanism) have always shared the goal of the universal abolition of the surrogate motherhood. Together we support the bill on surrogacy that will be debated in the Chamber of Deputies next 19 June, which extends the punishability of the practice even if it is carried out in a foreign country and which is a decisive step forward in the direction of universal abolition, offering -if approved- a model for other legislations [...].

Spain: woke sex also among the reasons for the end of Podemos
Ley Trans. Only Yes is Yes' law that reduced penalties for sex offenders. And now also a Manifesto for Sex Education for All* that jeopardises the safety of girls and boys. The spirit is always the same: a queer sexuality promoted by outgoing minister Irene Montero. Which, however, voters and electors apparently do not like. An analysis by lecturer Juana Gallego, feminist affected by the cancel culture
In yesterday's local elections in Spain, the left lost disastrously - as in Italy, for that matter. In particular, there was the stinging defeat of Podemos, which in many regions almost went extinct. In the analyses of the Spanish vote, perhaps not enough emphasis is given to two manifesto-laws of Podemos, and in particular of the transfeminist minister Irene Montero: the 'Only Yes is Yes' law, which reduced penalties for sexual crimes, and the Ley Trans, which [...]

This time it is: in the skin of children
Against the ruling of the Court of Cassation, which prevents the full transcription of birth certificates of children born from surrogacy by allowing only the biological parent to be named and indicating stepchild adoption for his or her partner, some male couples in Milan are undertaking a new form of resistance: not even registering the biological parent - or both or neither - leaving the child in an administrative limbo in which, in this case, he or she would be deprived of the most elementary rights, from paediatrician to school
After the Prefecture of Milan, in application of a ruling by the Court of Cassation, blocked the transcription of the full birth certificates of children born on the initiative of same-sex couples - indicating that only the biological parent should be transcribed and the stepchild adoption, i.e. adoption in special cases, which is perfectly legitimate, should be the only way forward - the municipality of Milan is experiencing this, according to the report by Roberta Osculati, PD vice-president of the City Council: same-sex couples [...].

Transgender: the victory of Puer Aeternus
An evolution of the unisex who struggled against gender stereotypes, the 'gender' phenomenon among adolescents expresses the attempt to escape the biological debt-obligation and the need to feel disengaged from stepmotherly nature. But the transgender person is by no means his or her own creator: if anything, he or she is subservient to a totipotent 'spirit' that enslaves the mind and psyche. And the gay movement that advocates puerile simulation fails to see that it is precisely homosexual identity that comes off worst
Transgender ideology goes beyond the transsexual claim of the construction of sex by subtraction or addition of something from a matrix, because it challenges the very existence of the male and the female, and especially the latter, making the female gender a product of educational norms, DIY craftsmanship, beauty shop, chemical laboratory, surgical table. Both appeal to the 'truth' of the omnipotent creation of the sexes, destitute of actual reality. Young women in particular are unfortunately fertile ground [...].

Jama: when men give birth
In an incredible, recently published study, the American Medical Association's journal, one of the most important in the field, tries to give scientific backing to the idea that childbirth is not just a female experience. Because if it were exclusive, it would also be exclusionary. An operation on language in collision with reality
As we know, there are words that can no longer be used, especially in international scientific documents and studies. At the top of the list of tabooed words are all the terms that have to do with female difference understood as the exclusive possibility of giving birth to human beings, and thus: 'woman' -if biologically understood and not open to define persons not born women-, 'mother' and 'maternal', 'breast', with reference to breast-feeding, and so on. The operation on language aims to qualify [...].
