Zan bill: Beppe Sala's backhandedness

The mayor "nominates" Milan as a spearhead in the fight for the approval of the Zan ddl. Which confirms that it has at its heart the cancellation of sex and free choice of gender

Yesterday in Milan the most 'political' of Pride events: hence the 'shoulder', as has been said, for the approval of the Zan law. Here are some of the most significant things said from the stage at the event.

Alessandro Zan: "Those who criticise the law have never read it.. We cannot mediate on the living flesh of people. Taking away a piece of the law can have very serious repercussions. Removing gender identity means abandoning trans people. If it is removed, don't call it Zan law anymore.".

In truth perhaps no text of law has been more widely read and scrutinised than the Zan ddl: Zan's remark is dismissive and untrue. In addition Removing gender identity does not at all mean abandoning trans people. Replacing gender identity with transgender identity rather means naming trans people, which the law does not do, promoting instead an intangible perception that is quite different from the concrete reality of transgender people.

Monica Romanotranswoman: "No more judges, no more psychiatrists. Our struggle is intersectional or it will not be".

Guglielmo Giannottatransman: "We are against the trans business that denies self-determination to trans people. No more psychologists, psychiatrists, judges. I don't need anyone to live as a trans person. Law 164/82 -on rectification of civil status after sex change, ed.- is outdated and incomplete. In Lombardy we want to be the beacon, let's change the procedures at regional level. It should be an administrative procedure, as in many states.".

Both Monica Romano and Guglielmo Giannotta therefore confirm that gender identity is the real core of the Zan ddl, the first step towards gender self-certification or self-id.

Barbara Toncelli, transfeminist: "Trans women are women, perhaps even more than others. There is a extremist section of feminism which excludes them, mirroring patriarchal schemes".

We are the extremists.

Maria Elena Mantovani, Rainbow Families, requests registration on the birth certificate of the non-biological parent and "the free access to assisted reproduction techniques (PMA and surrogacy, ed.) for all, adoption and fostering, secular and inclusive schooling".

Another programme point, the decriminalisation of the use of surrogacy, is again confirmed.

Beppe SalaMayor of Milan, asks that the bill be approved without amendments and as soon as possible: "On the Zan bill, I think in a dry and pragmatic way. If there was time for discussion, we would discuss it. But those who don't want it just want to move it on. ITime is up. I say to my political party, let's go and count ourselves in Parliament, we run the risk of counting. The message coming out of Milan is: let's quickly approve the Zan".

In truth time to discuss -and this is a subject that deserves a very wide discussion-. there would be, and should always be. This is certainly not an issue on which to be 'dry and pragmatic'. This is not about the approval of a public work. But everything was done not to discuss and to pass it in a hurry in the Senate as well as in the House. This is certainly not an issue on which to be 'dry and pragmatic'. This is not about the approval of a public work. The mayor is in an election campaign and has decided to force the issue, knowing full well that his position does not represent the reasoned criticism of a large part of the Milanese population.

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 [...].
