Giorgia's father

Stigmatised also from the left is Rula Jebreal's vulgar attack that places the blame for an unreliable and absent father on Meloni. Absence that may rather offer a key to her political rise to control of a male party. And also her focus on motherhood

In its vulgar attackstigmatised by the right and the left, Rula Jebreal claims -based on a scoop in the Spanish press- that "Meloni's father is a notorious drug dealer/criminal convicted person who has served a sentence in a prison" when she "states that asylum seekers are criminals who want to replace whites"(again for the record, Meloni announced she will sue Jebreal for attributing this statement to you).

The leader of the right never made a secret of paternal abandonment when she was still at a very young age, of the fundamental breakdown of any relationship with him, of the gynaeceum in which she grew up, with her mother and sister, of the difficulties faced together. If fathers' faults do not fall on their sons and daughters, it is all the more true for abandoned fathers and abandoned daughters.

Apart from the latest splash of mud from this horrible campaign, Perhaps this 'dysfunctional' relationship between father and daughter can explain a lot about Giorgia Meloni's temperament. A father may disappear but never disappears in the symbolic and unconscious of an abandoned child, producing a narcissistic wound that will demand a lifetime of healing (probably the disappearance of a mother is much worse, but so be it).

La Meloni's ability to make his way among men, to measure themselves against the father-party (a radically masculine institution) to the point of conquering the top (in some way, controlling it) probably has to do precisely with the radical experience of an uncontrollable and totally unreliable father. The fact that this father combined his frikkettonism with criminal behaviour changes little, even if some people thought the news was greedy. And perhaps it is greedy, but in the sense we were saying: that It helps to understand the tenacity, the determination of a woman who tries to heal her wound by overturning the balance and managing to get, by making her way among men, where none had ever gone before.

For equal and opposite reasons, it will be interesting to observe Meloni's maternity policies of which she has equally radical experience, as a daughter - for whom her mother was the only strong reference - and as a mother who chooses to dedicate her first day after victory to her little girl, who had been neglected during the tumultuous campaign, and who immediately takes care to protect her from morbidity and the spotlight.

Meloni has repeatedly stated that the war on motherhood is at the centre of her thoughts, as is the issue of denatality: the hope is that he does not want to approach the issue from a purely demographic-statistical point of view (give birth to more Italians, according to the vulgate of his political opponents) but starting with a female desire weakened by too many obstacles and by now powerless in the face of general ingratitude towards mothers and their irreplaceable task. In short, who knows bring maternal wisdom and the mother-daughter relationship subject to the centre of its policiestoday's abject par excellence, and do it for the benefit of all, for a more humane and just society.

The other wish is that takes a very careful look at the way in which the issue of bigenitoriality is being addressed today, all too often to the benefit of abusive and violent fathers who try, and not infrequently succeed, in snatching children away from mothers deemed 'alienating' - the famous cases of Laura Massaro and Antonella Penati-: if he wanted to work on this, he might encounter a lot of resistance both in his majority and in the opposition, but all this pain, all this injustice must be healed.

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 [...]

When abortion is violence
A large number of abortions can be explained by the irresponsibility and 'running away' of men. "For whose pleasure am I aborting?" wondered Carla Lonzi. But this male violence is never mentioned and women continue to be blamed. As the ProVita do with their proposal to force them to listen to the fetus' heartbeat
Admittedly, I told ProVita's Maria Rachele Ruiu in all frankness that forcing a woman intending to have an abortion to listen to the fetus' heartbeat is not an admissible proposal. It is a senseless, sadistic, punitive and probably unconstitutional idea that would probably only have the effect of encouraging clandestine abortion. Perhaps the proposal will never go on the table and will remain mere propaganda. Bad propaganda though. Once again in the crosshairs there [...]

Trials and rapes
The questions asked in the courtroom to the alleged victim of sexual violence by Ciro Grillo and his companions are very reminiscent of the tone of the defence lawyers in the famous 1979 'Rape Trial'. The formidable harangue of Tina Lagostena Bassi, plaintiff's lawyer in that case, explains why these interrogation methods were - and remain - unacceptable. Let's listen to it again
It is worth re-reading and possibly re-listening to -the award-winning film Rape Trial, 1979*, you can see it again here in its entirety- the formidable harangue of lawyer Tina Lagostena Bassi, plaintiff's counsel in defence of a young woman raped by four men who had lured her to a villa in Nettuno under the pretext of a job offer. The trial ended with a conviction but the defendants received conditional release. It is worth listening to that harangue again because in the words [...]

Misogynists out of public service
Teo Mammucari's engagement on 'Dancing with the Stars', starring in one of the most offensive shows ever against women, with a 'mute assistant' -Flavia Vento- boxed in plexiglas and methodically mocked, casts doubt on RAI's effective commitment against violence and machismo. And it obliges citizens to contribute to the cachet of those who have offered such a degrading image of women
To the RAI Board of Directors to the President MARINELLA SOLDI to the CEO ROBERTO SERGIO to the RAI Parliamentary Supervisory Commission The feminicide of Giulia Cecchettin marked a point of no return in the collective conscience on male violence: the only possible precedent is the Circeo crime. RAI represented this moment of pain and political awareness by manifesting its intention to mobilise permanently against misogyny and machismo. For this reason we are surprised, offended and saddened by the engagement to [...].

Born of a surrogate mother
Olivia Maurel, 32, was born to a surrogate mother and today she is fighting on the front line against the practice, which she describes as 'atrocious' and 'monstrous'. She always knew something was wrong with her family. She suffers from depression, has had problems with alcoholism and has attempted suicide several times. Only recently has she discovered the truth about her origins and that she suffered the trauma of abandonment. "To no child," she says, "should what happened to me ever happen again."
Commercial or 'altruistic' surrogacy must be abolished. These are the words of Olivia Maurel, born in December 1991 in Kentucky by traditional surrogacy (i.e. in which the oocyte also belongs to the 'surrogate mother', ed.), who recounted her experience in a conference at the parliament of the Czech Republic. Today, married with two children in Cannes, 'proud to be a feminist' as we read on her X page, she fights against surrogacy. Her testimony, very valuable as there are still very few [...]

AUDI TO BE OPENED TO MALES: EMILIA REGION GRANTS (!) AN EXTENSION
At the urgent request of PPOO Minister Eugenia Roccella, the deadline set for the UDI to adapt its statute to allow men to join as well slips by 180 days. In the meantime, the powerful Schlienian Igor Taruffi, transfeminist councillor for Welfare and head of organisation of the national PD, will have to explain which passage of the circular on the reform of the Third Sector justifies his attack on female separatism
At the insistent request of PPOO Minister Eugenia Roccella, the Emilia Romagna region has granted an extension of 180 days to the UDI associations of Modena, Ferrara and Ravenna to adapt their statutes to allow men to register (we have told you about this here), statutes that UDI Bologna has in fact already modified for some time (2020) The deadline for modifying its statutes, under penalty of being expelled from the register of Third Sector Associations (RUNTS), has therefore been extended from [...].
