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.

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 her vulgar attack, stigmatised by the right and the left, Rula Jebreal claims -on the basis of a Spanish press scoop- that 'Meloni's father is a notorious drug trafficker/convicted criminal who has served time in a prison' when she 'states that asylum seekers are criminals who want to replace whites' (again for the record, Meloni has announced that she will sue Jebreal for attributing this statement to her). The right-wing leader has never made any secret of her abandonment [...]

Unlike their Italian counterparts from the PD and the left who stand for free gender identity, the Spanish progressives break with the PSOE's transactivist policies in defence of women and children. In their manifesto the excellent arguments against what, if passed, could be the worst transactivist law in the world
Breaking with its party, the PSOE, and sending a signal to the women of the European left, who are generally aligned in defence of transactivist diktatism, the Federación de Mujeres Progresistas launches a courageous manifesto against the Trans Law wanted by the governing majority in Spain (PSOE and Podemos) and being approved by an emergency procedure, without an effective parliamentary debate or a wide public discussion. The initiative also comes in response to the clamorous break between historical Spanish feminism -united in the Contraborrado cartel- [...].

When abortion matters to men
Totally ignored by the right and left in peacetime, the issue of abortion becomes central when men fight for their power. But if there is a 'Marche case' there is also a 'Emilia case', a red region: the same percentages of objection and no abortion pill in the consultatories. We women must not take part in this filthy dispute over our flesh, siding with one or the other supporters.
Women - or rather, so-called 'women's rights' - have been instrumentally thrown into the centre of this horrific election campaign, probably the worst ever. Not the low female employment rate, the gender pay gap, the lack of services that forces us into the living welfare part, violence and feminicide, the machismo of politics and all that we know and experience. The issue of issues is abortion, fished out of the oblivion in which it is normally confined -no party [...]

Perhaps gender identity does not exist
If it is the biologist Anna Fausto-Sterling, the first to speak about it in the 1990s, the inspiration of Judith Butler and the founder of gender theory, who is in doubt, then perhaps we are at a clamorous and definitive turning point. Stop trans laws before it is too late!
If Judith Butler is The Queen of Gender, Anna Fausto-Sterling is its goddess: zoologist, biologist and lecturer in gender studies -now at Brown University- starting from the rare genetic condition of intersexuality in the early 1990s, she was the first to attack the concept of sexual binaryity, arguing that sexuality is a spectrum and that at least five sexes can be identified ('come on, it wasn't a theory, I was being ironic, it was just a provocation' she later said. But in vain). [...]

Trans-Europe: Ireland, UK, Spain, gender laws high on political agendas
While the new British Prime Minister Liz Truss works to block gender self-certification in Scotland, the Iberian government prevents the parliamentary debate on the Ley Trans, which allows sex change even for 12 year olds, to go for approval in a hurry: that is why Spanish feminists break with the left and open dialogue with the Popular Party. Meanwhile in Ireland a professor is arrested for refusing to use fluid language
A teacher at an Irish Christian school, Enoch Burke, was suspended and then arrested for refusing to name a transgender student with a neuter pronoun. Meanwhile, new British PM Liz Truss is reportedly trying to block Scotland's plans to allow self-identification for transgender (self-id) people and has asked lawyers for advice on how to 'pause or prevent' the reforms. Truss, head of the equalities brief as well as a former foreign minister, was instrumental in ruling out [...]

A video every 10 minutes
The brutal murder of Alessandra Matteuzzi, hammered to death by her ex-boyfriend, is the perfect representation of every feminicide: the murderer is not someone who loses control, but one who restores it. Her death serves to restore the balance lost as a result of the abandonment. Violence is a function of domination. It's here that one must keep one's gaze to be able to stop it
The killing of Alessandra Matteuzzi, the Bolognese woman murdered by her ex with a hammer and an iron bench, is the plastic and perfect representation of the dynamics of every feminicide. Giovanni Padovani is not crazy, he is not a drop-out, he is a young man in perfect shape, integrated in the world, even a testimonial for campaigns against violence against women. In short, you would never have guessed it. Alessandra is subjected to constant and unprecedented harassment: she has to justify every movement, every breath, [...].
