Laura Massaro won for all

The most famous of the mothers under attack on the basis of the fictitious 'theory' of parental alienation has won her battle in the Court of Cassation, for herself and for all women in her situation: from now on, children can no longer be taken by force and it will no longer be so easy to talk about alienating mothers. It is also a symbolic victory, putting mothers back at the centre against all equalitarian rhetoric.

With Order No. 9691/2022, the Supreme Court of Cassation ruled in favour of Laura Massaro and banned parental alienation from the courts, defining the forced removal of minors, who must always be heard in proceedings concerning them, as being outside the rule of law.

A sensational judgment -thanks to Laura's courage and the outstanding work of the Lawyers Teresa Manente and Ilaria Bogliano- despite the bad omens and the harshness of the outcome of the appeal, not to mention the inadmissible attempts to discredit Laura "by 'prosecuting' her just 4 days ago in the Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry on child custody, meeting during which Massaro's ex-lawyer Giuseppe Apadula and his lawyer have repeatedly accused and condemned her by expressing opinions about her (the session was interrupted on the initiative of some of the parliamentarians present and despite protests by Senator Pillon). A sentence that constitutes a real turning point.

How will things go from now on for mothers in the same situation as Massaro?

Starting with the approval of the Law 54/2006 on 'mandatory' and 'equal' shared custody of children in separation cases, and on the other hand by the spread of the school of 'legal psychology which overturned the concept of the best interests of the childIt also identifies new pathological definitions for mothers and daughters who report violence and abuse in the family, the civil process for child custody has become an ordeal -see here- for many women forced to fight with lawyers, psychologists, social workers and all figures involved in juvenile and family law.

The order of the Supreme Court in the Massaro case brings justice to all protective mothers who in recent years have courageously started to denounce what they have suffered in cases of divorce and separations described as 'conflictual' but which in reality concealed situations of physical and psychological male violence and abuse of women and children.

The legal battle also seems never-ending, with Threats of recourse to the ECHR already received which in the past has often taken the side of fathers, who in the last twenty years have been the protagonists of a one-sided narrative that has portrayed them as the victims of separation. It will therefore be necessary not to lower the level of attention with regard to the field of law and judgements, a field in which many abusive men pursue their strategy called 'legal harassment' by world experts. harassment through the use of the law.

After the Supreme Court Order:
1. what will become of all daughters and sons estranged from their mothers in recent years as a result of social services reports or court orders drawn up along the lines of the theories close to parental alienation and as an abuse of the concept of 'the child's right to bigenitoriality'? An example for all, the mother of Baressa and dozens of other cases known to the press, and the thousands without names throughout Italy.
2. What we should expect as soon as the school year ends, period when executions of the European Commission's forced withdrawal measures?

The final judgement in the case of Massaro and his son, defining the forced removal as a measure 'not in conformity with the rule of law' as well as raising doubts about its 'compatibility with the protection of the dignity of the person'. certainly constitutes a point of no return. There will probably be other attempts to resort to the sham 'theory' of parental alienation, updating its definition or trying in some way to reintroduce it into proceedings, but the precedent of the Supreme Court is too strong.

It was a victory for Laura and the many mothers who have emerged from silence, united in diversity. There has been no lack of conflict, but the objective has been achievedone woman fought and won for the others and for the daughters and sons of all. A important symbolic goal: that of bringing the relationship between mother and child out of the 'equal' shoals and repositioning it at the centre of the human community.

It is the sense of what we name as a change of civilisation.

The 'milk' of men
The English National Health Service ensures that the milk produced by a male body -stimulated with ad hoc drug therapy- is as good for the newborn as that of its mother, who is wiped out. Minimising the risks to the child's health largely offset by the ideological and symbolic benefits. It is the transhuman, my beauties!
Men's 'milk' is a perfect example of what we call transhuman. Women's milk, on the other hand, is human, all too human, it is the perfect model of the enduring human, and therefore natural breastfeeding should be degraded, mocked, stigmatised as something to be ashamed of and kept hidden. In fact, it is even a useless and unethical act. On the contrary, promoting and magnifying male 'breastfeeding' shows plastically the way forward. According to the prestigious journal Pediatrics, organ of the American Academy of Pediatrics, it is 'risky' to define [...]

How to convince progressives to give up gender
Terrified of transactivists and worried about sounding 'right-wing', left-wingers support the transition of minors even in the absence of studies showing that 'affirmative therapy' works and promotes the well-being of gender non-conforming girls and boys. "But everyone has a right to evidence-based medicine," argue some liberals determined to "break the spell". And they start DIAG -Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender- to convince democrats in the US and around the world that continuing on this path is wrong and dangerous. For children and for the left. An article by Bernard Lane
A new movement of US Democrats wants to find out how to break the spell of gender ideology and bring the party back to the liberal values of science and reason. Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender (DIAG) launched a project yesterday on X Space (Twitter) to commission research on how to more effectively reach out to left-wing voters who believe that science is now in favour of 'gender-affirming' medicalisation of gender non-conforming youth. "The only way to end this [...]

New York Times: Strong doubts about hormones for children with gender dysphoria
The world's leading woke newspaper has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, starting with the indecent treatment of JK Rowling. Today the paper changes course and in a very long article criticises the 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers, hormones and surgery) for trans minors, giving a voice to some hitherto censored and ostracised detransitioners. Because by now even many Democratic voters have strong doubts. And there is a risk of losing many readers: "get woke, go broke".
For years, the New York Times has been the world's leading woke newspaper and has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, jubilating critical voices. The treatment of JK Rowling is exemplary. In 2022 a very violent subscription campaign invited people to imagine Harry Potter without its creator: the ultimate in cancel culture (see here) A misogynistic and aggressive gesture - the initiative turned out to be a boomerang and many female subscribers threatened to cancel -. A few months ago The Daily published [...].

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 [...]

Child rapists: shock report in UK
In Great Britain, 18 rapes a day are committed by minors on their peers: in 2022 these cases numbered 15,000, almost always by very young males. A British police report shows how free access to violent pornography online is normalising criminal sexual behaviour in England and all other Western countries
For years, we have been reporting on the psychological and material damage produced on an entire generation by free access to violent online pornography, consumed by boys and girls from the age of 7 but also much earlier: gang rapes committed by minors are just the tip of the iceberg of this dramatic phenomenon, which has now been analysed and quantified by a study by the British police. On this topic you can find previous articles here, here, here and here. We were almost only [...]

New Hampshire: No more 'sex change' surgery on minors
The US state has passed a bill banning surgeons from performing operations on under-18 year olds such as the removal of ovaries and breasts for females and penises and testicles for males. The bill states that these operations violate the patient's 'informed consent' and points out that studies have not shown a decrease in the suicide risk of minors after the operations. On the contrary: the danger increases
New Hampshire is preparing to ban under-18s from undergoing sex-change operations. Last Thursday, the New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a bill to this effect, also with the help of some Democratic members. House Bill 619 prohibits doctors from performing 'any genital gender reassignment surgery', i.e. the removal of the uterus, ovaries and breasts in the case of women; testicles and penis for men, to anyone in the [...]
