The Vatican, feminists, Zan and foolish men

Diplomatic relations between Italy and the Vatican are not our business. On the other hand, we have the utmost competence on the many worrying critical aspects of the Zan bill. We have long asked to be heard. Now we no longer ask. Ask them

Diplomatic relations between Italy and the Vatican are not our concern, at least no more than any other citizen. Each will legitimately have its own opinion. Some will see the Vatican's action as undue interference, others as a legitimate call to respect pacts between states. Others will remain perfectly indifferent.

On the other hand, the matter on which the crisis is being exercised - the contents of the Zan bill - is our responsibility. We are probably among those who know most about these issues. In Feminist Post you will find all possible critical arguments related to the contents of the draft law probed far and wide.

A year ago we were a voice in the wilderness. The approval of Zan's bill in the Chamber of Deputies last November took place - deliberately - in semi-clandestine fashion and in the general silence of the media.. We have done everything we could, and more, to ensure that these issues of enormous human and political relevance would instead become a reality. subject of public debate, as is finally happening. We have, let's say, made a major contribution to the awakening, and we are very satisfied with our work.

We have offered hundreds of opportunities for the proposers of the bill to discuss it constructively, but every invitation to do so has been rejected with a misogynistic contempt that we did not expect. and which will not remain without consequences, including at the ballot box. They did not listen to us and instead pointed us to public hatred. But the rest of the audience heard.

So let them ask to meet with us today if they feel it is useful and appropriate. We have a lot of important things to say. We are no longer asking for this, and remain firm on our reasoned positions.

The astonishment remains to have seen the proponents, with particular reference to the Pd, cplay the political game badly by stubbornly going down a dead-end street like foolish men. but then complain - always and only in private - that they do not know how to get out of the trap. To realise, as many have observed, that The issue of freedom of thought and opinion, which has always been the heritage of the left, is now being held up by the right. Also with regard to the historical and well-established relations of that party with the Churchthe stolidity of failing to pick up on visible signs of impatience, leading to an unprecedented break.

Again, this is not our concern. What is our business is to reiterate our positions on the text of Zan, which remain as they always have beenwithout hesitation, in resonance with the positions of feminism, which throughout the western world is struggling against self-perceived gender and the erasure of women: no to gender identity -to be replaced in the text by transsexuality or transgender identity, Away with the term sex, which introduces misogynistic and misandric hate crime (!), out with transqueer propaganda from schools.

We also suggest drawing on another bill presented by the centre-left and shared by a large part of the centre-right, the Scalfarotto-Annibali bill, which would offer a good way out and ensure an effective law against homotransphobia.

Take a tour of the Feminist Post and you will find all possible arguments to support these positions.

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 [...].

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 [...].

Legislation against violence against women should talk about sex and not 'gender identity': open letter to the European Parliament
Violence against women will not be combated if the texts of laws and treaties do not clearly refer to sex and not 'gender'. We join feminist and gender critical groups in an appeal to MEPs who will vote on the Commission's anti-violence proposal: write clearly in the text that women and girls are the female sex and leave no room for gender ideology
We, too, signed the letter to the European Commission on combating violence against women and domestic abuse drafted by WORIADS, a coalition of gender-critical citizens whose aim is to inform and raise awareness of the dangers of gender identity in the European institutions. The letter demands that European regulations on violence against women clearly recognise the category of biological sex. Below is the full text that will be sent to the members of the European Parliament who will vote on the [...].
