Yesterday from the stage in the square in Milan in support of the Zan ddl, Marilena Grassadonia -former president of Famiglie Arcobaleno, since a few weeks responsible for national rights and freedom for anti-discrimination policies of Sinitra Italiana. stated that "the Zan ddl is only the beginning".

"Zan law" explained "is a forward-looking law that looks to the future". And after the Zan law in the Lgbtq agenda is ".Law 40, which leaves behind single women who cannot access assisted reproduction. We want a revision of the now antiquated law 164/82 on transitional paths. (i.e. free self-certification of gender, ed.). We want a season of rights where we talk about Pma (assisted reproduction) and Gpa (uterus for rent)and the recognition of sons and daughters of rainbow families. The Zan bill is just the beginning.". (the whole intervention herethese statements from minute 6 onwards).

The programme is this, greeted by thunderous applause, and Grassadonia did the right thing to make this very clear. His sincerity is very much appreciated. The approval of the Zan bill, which introduces gender identity, means embarking on this path.

As for theuterus for rent or gestation for others: MP Nicola Fratoianni, the same party as Grassadonia, is already among the signatories of a proposal for a so-called 'solidarity' GPAone of the effects of which would be precisely that of Promote recognition as parents of all principals, whether 'solidarity' or 'commercial'.

As for the law 164/82, updated by subsequent judgments: the rule regulates the question of civil registry office rectification for transgender people (in simple terms, the name change) and outlines the path to achieve it. Throughout the West The LGBT movement, on the other hand, is pushing strongly in the direction of free self-certification of gender, in absolute self-determination, with a simple registry or notarial act and without a path regulated by expert opinions and judgments. Italy is no exception, and why should it be? Self-certification of gender or self-id is already law in some countries, such as Ireland, Argentina, parts of Canada and Malta - it was, however, denied after a long debate in Great Britain- and has amply demonstrated that it has a strong negative impact on the lives of women, girls and children (in the Feminist Post you will find dozens of examples of what we are talking about).

Lhe words of Marilena Grassadonia thus finally confirm that the concept of gender identity, which is at the heart of the Zan law, is only the forerunner of the reform of law 164/82 in order to arrive at self-id, despite the repeated denials of the signatories, starting with Zan himself. There is already, after all, a platform for a proposed MIT law, Trans Identity Movement, which calls for the introduction in Italy of self-id. The proposal states, inter alia:

"This approach involves a radical paradigm shift. The request disappears
of the individual, whether to judicial or administrative bodies, and the consequent
authorisation. What is relevant is the self-affirmation of a stable connection with the gender to which one is
feels it belongs
connection formally attested by the individual requiring the
correction of master data, through a solemn declaration received from the public
(...) the self-determination model has visible advantages:
- is based on a accessible and simplified procedure, which minimises compliance
- reduces or eliminates the need to integrate a number of merit requirements, such as those relating to
mental health, age, or social, economic or family issues
- recognises that trans and intersex people (to which it would be appropriate to add the non
binary) are the only arbitrators of their kind, without the need for scrutiny by
third parties or public authorities
(You can read the whole bill here).

Whatever one thinks of self-id (and the vast majority of Italians, as seen here, thinks badly of it or shows that it is not adequately informed) is It is intolerably undemocratic to maintain silence on what is the real in-progress content of Zan's bill against homobi-transphobia, namely free self-certification of gender. This is a very sensitive subject, which concerns everyone and everyone because it has to do with human sexuality, should be explained and widely debated by citizens, and for as long as it takes.

The proper protection of the dignity of homosexual and transgender people can be ensured by a law that does not promote gender identity - as is the case with most European legislation - which, where it is affirmed by law, has already proven to produce great injustice for women, girls and children.

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 [...]

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, [...].

In the sign of Carla Lonzi forty years after her death: women voters and activists from all parties unite in the gift of a common 'unexpected programme', a horizon for a change of civilisation
"Will women always be divided from one another? Will they never form a single body?" (Olympe de Gouges, 1791) On the 40th anniversary of Carla Lonzi's death. We are women who vote for every political party. We live in every part of the country. We belong to every social condition. We are mothers and non-mothers. We have a faith, or we are agnostics, or atheists. We are held together by being women and the knowledge that what is good for a woman and her daughters/daughters is good [...]
