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.

Fuori i misogini dal servizio pubblico
L'ingaggio a "Ballando con le stelle" di Teo Mammucari, protagonista di uno degli show più offensivi di sempre contro le donne con una "valletta muta" -Flavia Vento- inscatolata nel plexiglas e metodicamente sbeffeggiata, fa dubitare sull'effettivo impegno della Rai contro la violenza e il maschilismo. E obbliga le cittadine e i cittadini a contribuire al cachet di chi ha offerto delle donne un'immagine tanto degradante
Al CdA RAI alla Presidente MARINELLA SOLDI all'Amministratore Delegato ROBERTO SERGIO alla Commissione Parlamentare di Vigilanza RAI Il femminicidio di Giulia Cecchettin ha segnato un punto di non ritorno nella coscienza collettiva sulla violenza maschile: l’unico precedente possibile è il delitto del Circeo. La RAI ha rappresentato questo momento di dolore e di consapevolezza politica manifestando l’intento a mobilitarsi in modo permanente contro la misoginia e il maschilismo.  Per questa ragione ci sorprende, ci offende e ci addolora l'ingaggio a […]

Born of a surrogate mother
Olivia Maurel, 32, was born to a surrogate mother and today she is fighting on the front line against the practice, which she describes as 'atrocious' and 'monstrous'. She always knew something was wrong with her family. She suffers from depression, has had problems with alcoholism and has attempted suicide several times. Only recently has she discovered the truth about her origins and that she suffered the trauma of abandonment. "To no child," she says, "should what happened to me ever happen again."
Commercial or 'altruistic' surrogacy must be abolished. These are the words of Olivia Maurel, born in December 1991 in Kentucky by traditional surrogacy (i.e. in which the oocyte also belongs to the 'surrogate mother', ed.), who recounted her experience in a conference at the parliament of the Czech Republic. Today, married with two children in Cannes, 'proud to be a feminist' as we read on her X page, she fights against surrogacy. Her testimony, very valuable as there are still very few [...]

13 November in The Hague against surrogacy
The Private International Law Conference is pushing for transnational recognition of gestation per se contracts with the intention of forcing national legislation to benefit biomarket profits. The Icams coalition against GPA organised a demonstration in defence of women's dignity and against the market in girls and children
The International Coalition to Abolish Surrogacy (ICASM) organised an international demonstration in front of the Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCCH) on 13 November to oppose the regulation of cross-border 'surrogacy'.

This is to meet the growing demand in the biomarket [...]

No more drugs for children with gender dysphoria!
For many years a pioneer of puberty blocker and hormone-based treatments for 'gender non-conforming' minors, Finnish psychiatrist Riittakerttu Kaltiala now denounces these 'therapies' as dangerous, useless and lacking in scientific evidence. And she calls on doctors around the world to find the courage to break the silence imposed by activist censorship and the media's rubber wall
In Italy there persists an obstinate silence on pharmacological treatments for minors with gender dysphoria (puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, 'gender reassignment' surgery) according to the protocol of so-called gender affirmative therapy. It is not possible to know how many minors have been treated or are undergoing treatment, in how many and which centres they are treated and with what 'success' (or failure) rates. While throughout the Western world the debate has been open for some time and in some countries [...]

At the urgent request of PPOO Minister Eugenia Roccella, the deadline set for the UDI to adapt its statute to allow men to join as well slips by 180 days. In the meantime, the powerful Schlienian Igor Taruffi, transfeminist councillor for Welfare and head of organisation of the national PD, will have to explain which passage of the circular on the reform of the Third Sector justifies his attack on female separatism
At the insistent request of PPOO Minister Eugenia Roccella, the Emilia Romagna region has granted an extension of 180 days to the UDI associations of Modena, Ferrara and Ravenna to adapt their statutes to allow men to register (we have told you about this here), statutes that UDI Bologna has in fact already modified for some time (2020) The deadline for modifying its statutes, under penalty of being expelled from the register of Third Sector Associations (RUNTS), has therefore been extended from [...].
