The Espresso cover is perfect

The cover of the Espresso is good journalism, because it makes it definitively clear that the real goal of the Zan law is gender identity, towards free self-certification or self-id. Citizens have the right to know this. And to discuss it for as long as they need to.

The cover of theEspresso is perfect because it provides excellent information on the Zan ddl, more than many editorials, TV broadcasts and Zoom meetings, hitting the target perfectly: a pregnant woman -only women get pregnant- who identifies herself as a man, has undergone a double mastectomy -evident scars- and takes testosterone -beard and hair-.. That woman will demand to be called "man giving birth'.will accuse of misgendering and of transphobia anyone who says, possibly at the risk of prosecution (it has already happened around the world) that only women give birth. Simply saying that women have vaginas is enough to get into trouble: here the last episode.

The cover of theEspresso is perfect because it illustrates the real core of the Zan ddl, gender identity: not two boys holding hands or two women kissing, but a 'trans man' who apparently will no longer be able to breastfeed, but will be able to give birth because he has kept his female reproductive organs intact. Perhaps, if I may, instead of a drawing I would have chosen a photograph, but modesty is understandable.

La copertina dell'Espresso è perfetta

Just a week ago in Milan from the stage of the pro-ddl Zan Marilena Grassadonia, leader of Famiglie Arcobaleno and head of rights for Sinistra Italiana, clarified that the Zan law is only the beginning of the road to reforming law 164/82 (i.e. free self-certification of gender, the legal platform is already in place) and free access to uterus for rent (see here). No one has denied it, starting with Zan himself. Moreover, it is being tried all over the world, including Europe: in Spain, where the debate on the Ley Trans, in GermanyThe Bundestag will discuss a bill on self-id on 19 May. With one significant difference: Elsewhere the objective is explicit, here everything is done not to discuss it openly. This is why the cover of theEspresso is a very good step forward.

The cover is also journalistically perfect for another reason: it gives acorrect information on transitions. It chooses a trans FtM, female to male, today the 75-80% of transitions between minors: it is about girls trying to escape the apparent misery of being a woman in a world of oppressing males ("escape from the burning house'.) "identifying" with the oppressor: this is the extreme, last and definitive stage of emancipationism (see here). Surgery also affects mainly girls: in 9 out of 10 cases, MtF trans men to women keep their bodies and genitals intact, while FtM girls almost always get mastectomised and take hormones.

A couple of weeks ago we published on La Stampa a crowdfunded survey targeting gender identity (see here) which recorded the opposition of the majority of citizens. What has the Zan ddl, we were told, got to do with gender self-certification? The cover of theEspresso clarifies this definitively: gender identity, as we have always said, is the lintel of the law, the essential point together with the day of celebration against homobi-transphobia in schools of all kinds and grades (without the need for individual parental consent); and to Lgbtq training.

In those courses very little will be said about homosexual love. There will be no films about love between women and men - such as the splendid Portrait of the young woman on fire o Moonlight-. Gender identity will be discussed above all: indeed, it is already being discussed. The following will be discussed career alias e gender variance (i.e. the possibility of being called by the name of the chosen gender rather than the birth name): indeed, this has been discussed and done for some time, see for example the school guidelines "for children and adolescents with gender variance'. processed by Regione Lazio. To the youngest, as in Canada, perhaps Gegi will show up. (see here) the magical unicorn who will accompany them to discover their own gender identity e gender expression (slogan: don't tell mum and dad, tell Gegi).

La copertina dell'Espresso è perfetta

There will be a discussion on surrogacy, which is still a great business to promote along with the surgery and hormone market. Indeed, there is already a lot of talk about it in Italian schools with dedicated grand tours. So: the cover of theEspresso, that sweeps away all doubt. Zan law is one of the main gateways to transhuman or posthuman civilisation.

It may or may not be a beautiful thing. What is certain, it needs to be discussed, at length and in depth, cannot be the hasty decision of a few imposed on the majority of the unaware. In Great Britain where there has been much talk about it, the overwhelming majority of citizens said no to self-id (94 per cent against, according to the poll of The Times) and LGBT education in schools is no longer done. In Swedenafter having initiated the transition of thousands of girls and boys a few weeks ago decided to ban puberty blockers.

So the cover of theEspresso which contributes to clarity.

Petrillo: my body doesn't count, I want to use women's showers. And withdraws from the Torun World Championships for reasons of 'safety'
Winning competitions is not enough: Petrillo also claims to use the women's changing rooms after the Italian Athletics Federation at the request of female athletes decided on reserved spaces. "The state recognises me as a woman, male genitals don't count. Besides,' she sneers, 'it certainly won't be the first time they see them. In the meantime, she renounces the next world championships for 'security' reasons.
A few days ago, we published a report on the competition of Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo in Ancona, with the reactions of the female athletes beaten by her male body. The female athletes made it clear that, although they respected Petrillo's personal journey, athletically they were not on a par and that they felt discriminated against. The statements made by the female athletes to the Feminist Post were taken up by other newspapers, including Il Giornale (here), and provoked comments from Petrillo, who had [...]

'We were wrong': pioneer of puberty blockers admits damage
Susan Bradley, a Canadian psychiatrist who founded a clinic for 'dysphoric' minors in the 1970s and an authority in this field today states that the switch from psychological therapy to drugs was a big mistake. Because their effects are severe and not reversible, because those treatments are 'authoritarian' and experimental. And because in 9 out of 10 cases children's dysphoria is only temporary and masks other disorders.
In an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation, Dr Susan Bradley, a Canadian psychiatrist and a pioneer in the treatment of gender dysphoria in children, spoke out against the popular model of affirming children's transgender identities and treating them with puberty-blocking drugs, a practice she had participated in in the past. Bradley had opened a paediatric clinic in 1975 for children suffering from gender dysphoria, a profound sense of unease concerning the [...]

The men's ultracorp of the transatlete Petrillo continues to win everything. Opponents react
Valentina née Fabrizio once again outclassed her opponents in Ancona on 12 March. She now has eight master's titles, whereas before the transition - when she competed with the men - she had not even won one. Now she is preparing for the world championships. Here a summary of the races and statements from the athletes unjustly deprived of victory
Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo, born in 1973, turns 50 this year and changes category in national masters athletics competitions. On 11 and 12 March in Ancona, she competed for the first time in the F50 category, i.e. with female athletes aged 50 to 54. And again, with her ultra-masculine body, she easily racked up trophies and records that used to belong to female athletes. But what is it like to see a live ultra-male body competing against female bodies? What are [...]

Prefect to Mayor Sala: stop registering children of same-sex couples
The decision makes those girls and boys more equal and not unequal as we read in many ideological comments today. Starting with the equal right to the truth about one's origins enshrined in all international conventions. And to the attribution of the same rights of citizenship granted to every new born: that is why
The prefect of Milan has ordered the mayor Beppe Sala to block the transcription of birth certificates of children born by same-sex couples. For example, it will no longer be possible to fully transcribe birth certificates produced abroad - in Ukraine, Canada, California, etc. - by surrogacy, which also applies to heterosexual couples who have undertaken this practice. We radical feminists had appealed to the prefect to order Mayor Sala to respect the [...]

Slavoj Žižek: puberty blockers are woke capitalism
The Marxist philosopher speaks of wokeness, the progressive cult of awareness and awakening, giving an evocative psychoanalytic reading of it. And warns that despite appearing under attack today we will have to deal with it for a long time to come
In an evocative article published by Compact, entitled Wokeness is here to stay -which we translate and partially reproduce here- the Marxist philosopher Slavoj Žižek tackles the subject of wokeness, the movement of 'awakening', analysing its critical aspects but also underlining the reasons why we will have to deal with it for a long time to come. Some argue that 'wokeness' is in decline. In reality it is gradually being normalised and conformed even by those who inwardly doubt it, and is practised by most academic institutions, [...].

Transsexuality is not a lunch for genderqueers
Being transgender is not transgenderism but a deeply dramatic experience with an uncertain outcome. Which has nothing to do with the stale stereotypes with which gender identity is expressed. Neviana Calzolari's reflections
Republished courtesy of Dol's Magazine. Original article here Neviana Calzolari, sociologist, activist, writer and TV face. Yet hardly mainstream, indeed among the most acute (and critical) observers of the social-political landscape of our times (...) The I-Dee group of Milan and the Ipazia association of Catania met her. - The Zan bill was designed to combat homotranssphobia, therefore with good intentions,' Neviana began, 'despite this I remain sceptical about certain terminology, in particular 'gender identity', which alarms much of the world [...].
