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.

Is violence structural to transfeminism?
Paola Pieri, from the group MaternaMente, recounts the violence she suffered in Florence from trans activists
Text by Paola Pieri, of the group MaternaMente. Last Thursday, 23 March, I went in front of the Careggi hospital, here in Florence, where a small garrison called by 'Resistance to the nanoworld' was being held, attended by Silvia Guerini, author of the book 'From the neutral body to the post-human cyborg, critical reflections on gender ideology'. Presidium called in such a place because it is where dozens of minors and others with 'gender dysphoria', treated with puberty blockers, hormones and other planned [...].

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 [...]

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 [...].
