Feminism, which is critical of the Zan bill, has recently issued a statement -see here- listing once again the reasons why the we oppose not a law against homotransphobia, but THIS law against homotransphobia. Reasons that have been the same for months, and as such are perfectly debatable in a confrontation - if it were accepted, but so far it has not happened.

It is rather depressing that instead of considering these reasons, Instead of confronting these reasons, a war of communiqués is waged in order to show that the REAL feminists are in favour of the Bill as it stands. The last one, hastily put together, signed by "activists of If Not Now When"(?) -which as such has not existed for years: there are only Snoq Libere, Snoq Factory, Snoq Genova and other cities, but If Not Now When not- and by a list of names -some of whom, we accidentally discover, did not even know they had signed up-. and then spread by the drumbeat of LGBT+ sites.

This is not serious, it is humiliating, it reduces politics to a board game and a petrol station.

We could respond by exhibiting theand almost 17,000 signatures and the 320 associations, including many Italian ones, that have signed the Declaration on Women's Sex-Based Rights (see here), a global gender-critical network covering 130 countries, i.e. more than half the countries in the world (we are the Italian contact point for this network). Or mention the political partnership with the Spanish feminists of Contra Borrado in the fight against Ley Trans and gender identity (see here), dozens and dozens of associations that are effectively at our side. We could mention the American Women Liberation Front (Wolf) and many others. Or even simply try to engage showbiz personalities as testimonials.

In all honesty we do not feel able to accept this plan.

The issues at stake are too important, they touch the root of the human being and the lives of women, girls and children, and cannot be dismissed with a collection of more or less invented signatures.

Mr Zan and the other signatories of the law against ombitransphobia have chosen to be elected to represent everyone, a task which requires a high sense of responsibility despite the poor state of health of our representative institutions. To him and to them We ask that the discussion be kept at the level it deserves. Above all, to agree to discuss: the confrontation we have been asking for for months is regularly shunned. Every attempt has been ignored: why?

As Zan knows very well, we we are not Pillon. The truth of our lives does not allow us to subscribe to the homophobic right.. Our biographies are closely intertwined with those of our lesbian, gay and transgender sisters and brothers, and for some of us they coincide. Feminism, as Michel Foucault acknowledged, has given a great deal to the LGBT struggle, and we too have done so individually, right up to the latest squares for civil unions.

This perhaps makes it more complex to take into account and measure our critical arguments against the bill. Also because We are convinced that Zan and the other signatories of the dossier understand very well what we are talking about.

Is it really so difficult to understand that it is not possible for an MP to be prosecuted for saying that 'only women give birth'. (is happening in Norway)? Which is absurd to allow people with intact male bodies to participate in women's sports competitions? That it is very dangerous for women to allow men who for reasons of convenience claim to be women to be detained in women's prisons (it's happening in California, 270 transfer requests)? What someone who has been perceiving himself as a woman for 15 months cannot expect to enter a women's convent, as he is doing. (is it happening in the Netherlands)? (here we only mention facts of the last few days). What you can't pump eight-year-old girls and boys with hormones, making them rachitic and infertile, just because they show behaviour that doesn't conform perfectly to their sexas has happened to almost all of us? And that it is not acceptable that in Vancouver, Canada, a father was imprisoned for opposing puberty blockers given to his daughter? (Today there will be a demonstration in solidarity with the man, already threatened by transactivists).

No, it is not difficult. Anyone with common sense understands that. This is gender identityin its non-glittered, fashionable version. The fact is gender identity is at the heart of the Zan bill, and we want to talk about it. We want to talk about this and other things.

We then close with yet another request to Zan and the other signatories of the bill to accept a serious, in-depth and reasoned debate (of the only one who, just in the last few days, had said she was a perhaps available, Monica Cirinnàwe no longer have any traces).

Buying and selling human embryos and foetuses: first EU yes
A draft European Parliament (SoHo) regulation approved by a majority of Liberals, Socialists and Greens definitively opens up the cross-border market for 'substances of human origin' including gametes, embryos and foetuses. With the risk that national legislations may be bypassed by virtue of Brussels' instructions
The European Parliament approved in the first instance a proposal for a regulation that equates human embryos with cells and tissues, calling them 'substances of human origin', and opens the door to eugenics and industrial uses. The proposed regulation on quality and safety standards for substances of human origin intended for human application (or SoHO regulation) was approved on 12 September by a large majority of socialists, greens and liberals, despite the alarm raised by various expert organisations. Officially the [...]

Open letter to Health Minister Schillaci: medically assisted procreation does not increase the birth rate. On the contrary, it is among the causes of the demographic winter
Free homologous fertilisation and a €1,500 ticket for heterologous fertilisation: the minister announces new measures that would help stem the birth crisis. But it is the exact opposite: the more we feed the illusion of being able to postpone the birth of a child ad libitum - the results of PMA are poor: in more than 8 out of 10 cases it fails - the fewer children will be born. There is only one way: infertility prevention. Starting with correct information against the propaganda of the reproductive biomarket
Dear Minister Schillaci, we learn from press reports that as of 1 January next year the National Health Service will provide homologous fertilisation services free of charge and that it has established a co-payment for heterologous fertilisation - the responsibility of the region - which is expected to be around 1,500 euro. The provision would be part, according to him, of the measures against the birth rate in our country: less than 400 thousand births in 2022, the lowest number since the unification of Italy to date. In reality, as he explains [...]

UK, you can no longer say 'woman' or 'mother': woke provisions of the General Medical Council
Decision of unprecedented violence by the British Medical Register: the word woman must be deleted at every level. It cannot even be mentioned when discussing motherhood, childbirth, breastfeeding, menopause. Even 999, the emergency number, can no longer ask what sex the person asking for help is. The woke know very well that the female body is the main obstacle to the transhuman project. And they want to erase it even in language
It keeps happening: women and mothers must also be erased from the vocabulary, at every level. They do not give up because the maternal symbolic is the most resistant obstacle to the transhuman project. We will not give up either. Forget it The General Medical Council -the public body that maintains the official register of doctors in the UK- has replaced the word 'mother' with neutral terms in its maternity guide for staff. The updated guide for employees who become pregnant omits [...]

The new PD proposal on surrogate children is wrong: here's why
The idea is a facilitated 'rewarding' path -only four months- for the adoption of children born by gestation for others: a quasi-automatism that instead of counteracting it would encourage recourse to the practice. Moreover, a difference is made between this type of adoptee -GPA clients- and all others for whom the timing would not change. But the Constitution wants us equal before the law
The PD has deposited in the Senate -first signatory the cathodem Alfredo Bazoli, deputy vice-president of the PD group- a bill that provides for a 'special adoption' so-called 'affective' for the children of hetero or homo couples born from uterus for rent. Basically, it accepts the procedure of adoption in special cases of those born by Gpa for the 'intentional' parent, but calls for it to be accelerated to arrive at a ruling within four months. The court, therefore, the text reads, "shall verify whether the [...]

Female wombs in male bodies
The envious dream of all time -to be able to have children without women, to erase mothers, in short, the Grail- is getting closer and closer to being realised: in five to ten years' time, even biologically male trans people will be able to receive a womb transplant and conduct a gestation. An 'inclusive' wish-right that would improve their quality of life and alleviate the symptoms of dysphoria. While the lives and health of girls and boys born from these practices are of no concern to bioethicists
Euronews reports on the rapid progress of research on the uterus transplantation front, with particular reference to the request of trans MtF people whose bodies remain biologically male, while FtM people, if they retain their female genital apparatus, can undertake a pregnancy like any other woman: the 'pregnant fathers' that the mainstream press likes to report on are none other than women who self-identify as men. In the article, which we translate here, women are referred to as cis- women, suffixed [...]

Appeal to the FDA: no more silence on puberty-blocking drugs
A petition asks the US drug agency -which has never authorised the off-label use of these substances for girls and boys with dysphoria- to counter the misinformation that propagates these treatments as effective and safe and to demand studies to prove it.Between 207 and 2021, the number of minors treated has more than doubled and the FDA can no longer pretend it is blind.
On his site Gender Clinic News Bernard Lane reports on an important petition to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration, US drug regulator) to take urgent action on the unapproved (off label) use of hormone suppressant drugs to block puberty in girls and boys who identify as transgender. Although this use has never been approved by the FDA, it is not possible for the agency to ignore the possible harm to minors who are subjected to these [...].
