This is Georgia

Surrogacy, gender identity, motherhood: on many issues, the positions of the leader who now looks to the premiership coincide with those of feminism, snubbed by the left. What to do in the face of this challenge? Can the women's movement dialogue with the right?

Giorgia Meloni could become the first woman prime minister in our country.

She no longer hides her ambition, and if she does the right things - or rather, if she doesn't do the wrong things - by next spring, and if she manages to escape the friendly fire burstsno less intense and insidious than the enemy's, will be able to achieve its goal, having only herself to thank as well as the mistakes of his opponents: no one has co-opted her -see here- she has no taskmaster to answer to, she has done everything on her own, with intelligence and determination.

There are many variablesstarting with the possibility that the centre-right does not present a united front this time. elections. The evolution of the ukraine situation and even the result of the elections of midterm in November in the United States, which could see the Biden administration in serious trouble: the American Republicans are looking at Meloni with interest and appreciation But the road is now outlined and the Fratelli d'Italia Programme Conferencenot surprisingly organised in Milan and open to 'external' contributions, formally kicked off the game.

As far as Carla Lonzi was very clear against "Marxism" which "sold us to the hypothetical revolution".and although the dialectic between the women's movement and the left has always been rather complex, there can be no doubt that Historically, feminism is rooted in a left that was the first to take on the so-called 'women's question', by opening up to the inclusion of women in politics and parties, including right-wing parties: feminism has paved the way for them too.

For some time, however, the left has broken off its interlocution with feminism -in particular with feminism gender critical- dumping women as old and obsolete subjects in favour of new and postmodern ones clients in the horizon of sexual fluidity, proceeding to more inclusive up to dateThe equal opportunities offices in the institutions are now mainly dedicated to LGBT rights.

Closed doors, impatience, refusal of dialogue on all sensitive issues, from the Zan bill, which the PD has in recent days resubmitted as it stands to the Senate, to theuterus for rentWith a few exceptions -Stefano Fassina, Valeria Valente, the mayor of Bergamo Giorgio Gori- it is considered an acceptable practice, despite the fact that at the time we had laboriously managed to extort the no of the former PD secretary Zingaretti, and also that of Roberto Gualtieri, current mayor of Rome, who then, in perfect coherence, appointed as responsible for rights The Queen of Gender Marilena Grassadonia, honorary president of Famiglie Arcobaleno.

But also on non-sensitive - in fact very sensitive - topics such as the war on motherhood which largely explains our formidable denatality, the attention of the left has long been scarce, intermittent and poorly focused.

It was a blow to the heart to hear Giorgia Meloni state that "The real goal of gender ideology is not the much-vaunted fight against discrimination, nor is it overcoming the difference between male and female. The real undeclared objective is the disappearance of the woman as a mother. Eugenia Roccella explained this with extraordinary lucidity and power," he added, "which opened my mind to something I had not fully focused on. The indifferential individual that gender theory tends towards is not so indifferential, he is male. Man can be everything today: father, mother, male, female, the words most censored by political correctness are woman and mother. It is female identity that is under siege because the extraordinary symbolic power of motherhood is being destroyed.".

And again: see you take a stand in support of the British lecturer Kathleen Stock -dwhose case we have written about many times-"feminist and lesbian who was forced to leave her chair at the University of Sussex" because of persecution by transactivists. "The first victims of gender ideology are women, whatever their sexual orientation. Is it possible that the single thought does not understand this?".

Are you aware of such a statement by a left-wing MP?

And seeing you sign a proposed law on surrogacy -may soon be scheduled in the Chamber of Deputies- that coincides with our request to make it a universal crime - a proposal rejected by the PD and Leu.

We are also certain that on many other issues - starting with the tragedy of the girls and boys gender nonconforming early hormone therapies, unprecedented medical scandal- Meloni would support our battle.

So what to do?

What position to take in the face of the irresistible rise of what most of us consider to be a political adversary but who on a large package of issues - those which, in essence, outline the transhuman project - could promote and support our agenda in full. from a position of considerable strength - never so much for a woman in the institutions?

Questions that cannot be further delayed. Together with another one: who will we vote for in the next general election? With which forces do we have the possibility to interact effectively, helping to shape the agenda?

For those of us - not many, but there are some - who support the right, there can be no doubt: Giorgia's challenge must be supported. But what about the others? They can continue, in coherence with their own lives, to support a left that has literally wiped them out?

Here I begin to say my hope and wish: that those of us who share these objectives may wish to do so. freely run for office in all forces of the parliamentary arc, creating an effective informal network. We can no longer afford not to have interlocutors within the representative institutions. The challenge is very difficult, it requires that we find the strength to bargain with the parties for certain positions and then to support them. But more than once we have been able to face seemingly impossible challenges, and it is good to equip ourselves to try.

As for Giorgia: if it knows how to win its political challenge, keep itself open to dialogue and try to 'entangle' it in the network. As we are seeing, on so many issues, there will be no struggle.

Norwegian feminist faces 3 years in prison for saying a man cannot be a mother
Christine Ellington, WDI's Norway contact person, investigated by the police for hate crime against a certain Jentoft who says she is a 'lesbian'. And whom she denounced, with the support of Amnesty International. Today, calling oneself a woman is possible for everyone. Except for women
While Netflix is under transactivist attack for broadcasting actor Ricky Gervais' stand-up, which dared to make fun of 'women with penises', there is much less joking in Norway. Christina Ellington, a representative of WDI (Women's Declaration International) is being investigated by the police and faces 3 years in jail for tweeting that males cannot be lesbians and for saying on TV to a male Jentoft, who identifies as a lesbian woman: 'You are a man. You can't be [...]

US Congress promotes a Women's Bill of Rights inspired by feminist texts
To be able to call themselves women, not to be reduced to 'menstruators' or 'holes in the front', to have their own reserved spaces: the American Republicans take on the resistance of feminism against woke progressivism and propose a law of historic significance. Women's associations, from WoLF to WDI, approve. But dividing them remains the issue of abortion, with the Supreme Court ruling in the home stretch.
While the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), America's largest civil rights association, is campaigning to argue that barring male sex offenders from women's prisons is discriminatory and unconstitutional, on 19 May, a group of Republican representatives in the US Congress, first signatory Debbie Lesko, introduced a resolution to introduce a Women's Bill of Rights, in order to legally define what a 'woman' is, recognise that women and [...]

Abortion: precisely what do pro-lifers want?
Today in Rome the Demonstration for Life will once again shout no to abortion, pending the Supreme Court ruling that could make it illegal in the USA. But the abolition of law 194 is unthinkable, there is no majority that would support it. What is the question then? What are the real goals of the movement?
Today in Rome the Manifestation for Life will take place. Net of the earthquake that is shaking the world of the so-called pro-lifers (a good report can be found here), today's square is strongly corroborated by the US wind and the fact that within a few weeks the American Supreme Court could confirm with a final ruling the outlawing of the interruption of pregnancy (we have spoken about it here). While respecting everyone's opinions, the position of Italian pro-lifers is [...]

Milan introduces gender self-certification
All it will take is a 'solemn' declaration to be able to choose what sex you are -female, male or neither- without any medical acts, expert opinions or judgments, and to adopt the 'alias' identity in various municipal services, including electoral rolls. In fact self-id, a huge change introduced by a simple administrative act and without any public debate. But it is all to be assessed whether the law allows it
So in Milan, self-id was introduced: it means being able to decide whether you are male, female - or neither - in total freedom, without expert opinions, sentences, witnesses - as the national law provides for: nothing of the sort, a simple bureaucratic step and it's done. In Great Britain, after years of public debate, self-id was shelved: the overwhelming majority of the population was against it. In Milan, without any debate, as if citizenship did not exist, as if laws did not exist, and [...]

Right, left, human, transhuman
The issue of 'rights' -from gender identity to the uterus for rent- is not complementary or on the sidelines, but outlines the horizon towards which we move. But the post-human perspective pursued by progressives is not unique and inescapable. The alternative exists: a female-rooted civilisation
By re-submitting the Zan bill in the Senate with very little chance of it passing -when instead other solutions, such as the Scalfarotto bill, would have ensured a law against homobitransfobia- PD secretary Letta has repeatedly stressed that the issue of rights is decisive for his party. The theme of rights, however, is always placed as complementary, on the sidelines of issues considered far more relevant: the war, certainly, economic issues, but also simply the electoral law. In truth, most of the game [...].

Kathleen Stock: 5 tips to keep transactivist troublemakers quiet
The lecturer forced to resign for saying that biological sex exists explains how to deal with harassing transactivism: just like a mother dealing with a wayward child or rebellious teenager. An ironic guide to saving your life
Philosopher Kathleen Stock became known outside academic circles after she was forced to resign from her professorship at the University of Sussex with threats and defamation by transactivists for expressing critical views on gender identity (see here). While similar cases are happening all over the world, including Italy and Europe (see here and here), in Anglo-Saxon countries lecturers are organising themselves to fight against the censorship of gender-critical feminism. In the article we present Kathleen [...]
