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).

Holland: if you block the development of girls and boys you push them to become trans
The protocol - pausing puberty to allow minors to 'choose' their sex - they invented. But even the Dutch now admit that in 9 out of 10 cases blockers no longer give time to 'decide' but are the start of the transition. A self-fulfilling prophecy. And that the effects of these drugs are by no means reversible
Amsterdam University Clinic UMC, a pioneer in the use of puberty blockers, has admitted that children taking these drugs may find themselves locked into increased medicalisation. The admission comes following the publication earlier this month of a new retrospective study examining 20 years of hormonal interventions known as the 'Dutch protocol', conducted on 1,766 children and adolescents between 1972 and 2018 at the famed Amsterdam clinic and published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine. But [...]

GenerAzioneD, Italian association of parents of minors who define themselves as 'trans', is founded
A guidance and information site to support and accompany mothers and fathers going through this complex experience: testimonies, interviews, and links to contribute to an in-depth debate that today does not find space in the mainstream media
The cultural, apolitical, non-denominational and non-profit association GenerAzioneD has been established. The association's primary aim is to inform about the problems of gender dysphoria/incongruence in children, adolescents and young adults. Through the dissemination of testimonies, news, national and international articles in translation and the promotion of opportunities for discussion, GenerAzioneD aims to foster the transparency necessary to ensure the best possible care for those affected. GenerAzioneD was in fact born from the meeting of some parents who shared the experience of having children [...]

Transgender' children: it's social contagion. Even the largest trans association admits it
Tik Tok, Youtube and others: the president of WPATH, the world association for trans health, forced to admit that influencers play a large part in the epidemic of transitions among minors, a phenomenon denied by Western progressives who brand every alarm as transphobia. But they do not stop pushing for medicalisation and early surgery
The Honourable Alessandro Zan, first signatory of the infamous bill on gender identity, which ended up in the knighthouse, had denied the dizzying increase in cases of transition of girls and boys, calling the news a 'dangerous statement'. In 2021 there were already numerous statistics indicating the extent of the problem, but apparently Zan was not aware of it - which is unacceptable - or pretended not to know, or more likely ideologically believed that the mere fact of posing the question should be considered proof [...].

The problem is not rooming-in but the loneliness of mothers
After the sad story of the baby who died next to his mother at the Pertini in Rome, for some the solution is to keep the babies in the nurseries and not in the room. But rooming-in was strongly advocated by women who used to be separated from their babies in hospital. It is, if anything, a question of allowing new mothers to have a spouse or wife to assist them. Especially in times of understaffing
Starting with the very painful case of the newborn baby who died at the Pertini hospital in Rome -probably by accidental suffocation, the judiciary will ascertain the causes: it could also be 'cot death' or something else- many and many conclude that rooming-in is a dangerous and wrong practice and that babies should stay in nurseries. I remember, however, that in the past women fought hard for rooming-in and for more than obvious reasons: not to be separated from the newborn after the long cohabitation [...].

Sex and gender: JK Rowling's essay
In her text, the writer explains in detail the reasons why she felt the need to address the trans issue, defying the violence of activists. A manifesto-writer for gender critical feminism translated into Italian by Alessandra Asteriti
Attacking JK Rowling can now also be a business. The latest initiative is that of a young Canadian imbecile art book creator who has decided to de-rowling Harry Potter by publishing a special edition of the saga on the cover of which the author's name disappears: $170 per copy for a despicable abuse of power. Let him keep all the copies in stock. Back to the serious stuff: in June 2020 JK Rowling published an essay on her website detailing her position [...].

Femelliste, a gender critical 'sister' platform is born in France
Harassed, insulted, mocked, threatened: French feminists have collected and catalogued the attacks transactivists have suffered for years. And they have set up an information and training site against the dictatorship of transgender ideology
The name of the site is a play on words that cannot be translated into Italian. The site's creators inform that it has already been used by animal feminists such as Posie Parker, Nicole Roelens and the Boucherie Abolition collective. It would make one think of anti-specism, it is actually more and in some respects a little different. 'Femelle' in French means the female animal (for the human one, the same word as woman, femme, is used). Since they fight for sexual rights [...]
