Mr Zanfirst signatory of the well-known dl against homophobia, misogyny, ableism (but also, as he pointed out in a live broadcast, misandry, heterophobia, in short, practically every form of hatred in circulation) should show more responsibility by not stirring up hatred in support of his anti-hate proposal.

L'onorevole Zan dimostri di essere responsabile

Zan -idem Laura Boldrini and Monica Cirinnà- has always belittled the feminism critical of his bill as inconsistent, residual, old, bigoted, homophobic and transo-phobic. The reasons for feminism are caricatured, mocked, ridiculed, mystified. For Zan we do not exist, we are not worthy of consideration, we have no name and surname, we don't have lives and political biographies that belie its offensive, derogatory and misogynistic representation. Biographies thanks to which he, an avowed gay man and militant, is where he is, otherwise he might not have got there.

Because all of us, and I mean all of us without exception, one by one, have intimately intertwined our lives with gay, lesbian and transgender people. -many of us are homosexuals themselves and some are even transgender. All of us have reserved a significant proportion of our commitment to the defence of these minorities, their lives and their rights. AND THIS IS AN INDISPUTABLE FACT by him and anyone else.

Yesterday, 25 April, there was a glimpse of the point of no return. A tweet from Zan in which there is -in this case me- attributed statements that I had not made and we had never made during a Omnibus on La 7, has literally unleashed hell, pain, anger, suffering of trans people expressed in death threats which you can see here (just some of the tweets). I wonder if, according to the text of his own bill, his falsifying tweet could not be interpreted as incitement to misogynistic hatredto be kind.

It was only after many solicitations - in private - from us and perhaps others that Zan decided to distance himself, always remaining contemptuously on the general and without naming the people affected by such hatred - in this case me - or even apologising.. Zan is a few years younger than me and may not understand exactly what is meant when it is said that "words are stones'.

L'onorevole Zan dimostri di essere responsabile

Zan would do well to finally acknowledge that in addition to right-wing dissent there is a reasoned and argued left-wing dissent to the text of its ddl 2. Feminism's remarks move more or less in that direction, with further arguments.i 3. This is a law that, particularly where it talks about gender identity, goes to the root of human sexuality, one cannot imperatively and undemocratically demand that it be passed as it is, without wide-ranging information and discussion involving citizens 4. It is necessary that Zan agrees to discuss: We have been trying for months in every way, repeatedly questioning him on social networks, Twitter, Facebook, emailing him, through intermediaries, agreeing to take part in TV programmes (it is he who does not accept) but from Zan only a silence, I apologise for the repetition, misogynistic and derogatory 5. Confrontation does not mean mobilising testimonials in favour: this is how products are sold.and this has nothing to do with politics, a Member of Parliament is not a sales representative 6. Sensitive issues such as abortion or divorce, with their associated laws, have taken years of in-depth and even divisive debate: the issue of gender identity is in all likelihood much more sensitiveand coming from the Greens he should know the tragic prophecies about Ivan Illich, father of contemporary ecology, but apparently knows neither the prophecies nor Illich.

Bottom line, Zan should stop mobilising applauders -who clearly do not know the content of his bill: it would be nice to see what Fedez has understood about it- and to titillate the pain of people suffering from the terrible condition of dysphoria, pointing to us as the ones responsible for his pain. Because we WANT THE LAW TO PROTECT TRANSsexual PEOPLE, WE DEMAND THAT THE TEXT EXPRESSLY NAME TRANSsexual PEOPLE. instead of thatimpalpable indeterminacy that is gender identity, whose impact in particular on the lives of women and children is already being felt in some parts of the western world.

The Constitution does not allow for intangible and undetermined objects in criminal legislationimposing taxation and certainty. Zan is responsible and committed to bringing back into the mainstream of democratic debate what has odiously overflowed from it. Again, for the umpteenth time, agree to engage with us.

Tomorrow evening, Tuesday, 9 p.m., an opportunity to listen to our finally unmystified arguments by connecting to RadFem Italia's YouTube channel.

Misogynists out of public service
Teo Mammucari's engagement on 'Dancing with the Stars', starring in one of the most offensive shows ever against women, with a 'mute assistant' -Flavia Vento- boxed in plexiglas and methodically mocked, casts doubt on RAI's effective commitment against violence and machismo. And it obliges citizens to contribute to the cachet of those who have offered such a degrading image of women
To the RAI Board of Directors to the President MARINELLA SOLDI to the CEO ROBERTO SERGIO to the RAI Parliamentary Supervisory Commission The feminicide of Giulia Cecchettin marked a point of no return in the collective conscience on male violence: the only possible precedent is the Circeo crime. RAI represented this moment of pain and political awareness by manifesting its intention to mobilise permanently against misogyny and machismo. For this reason we are surprised, offended and saddened by the engagement to [...].

British academics against cancel culture
On 20 November, the London Universities Council for Academic Freedom will be unveiled, a body that brings together a hundred or so professors from the major British universities with the intention of fighting against the censorship and single-mindedness that in recent years have impeded academic debate and freedom, compromising the education of thousands of students. In the crosshairs especially Lgbtq+ realities such as Stonewall that have heavily influenced university and higher education. About time, and go on!
As reported by The Telegraph, more than a hundred academics from the UK's top universities have joined forces to tackle the growing threat of cancel culture through the creation of a new body dedicated to academic freedom. In a pioneering initiative, the scholars have formed the 'London Universities Council for Academic Freedom', involving all academic institutions in the capital including University College London (UCL), King's College London, [...]

Canada: gender critical nurse risks her job
Amy Hamm works in a psychiatric ward and is under investigation for promoting women's rights based on sex and child protection online. The BCCNM, the body that regulates the nursing profession, intends to suspend her unless she participates in a re-education programme but Amy opposes this: the hearing is underway. US journalist Megyn Kelly interviewed her
Canadian nurse Amy Hamm - one of the founders of the non-profit coalition Canadian Women Sex Based Rights (caWsbar) - works in an acute psychiatric ward specialising in mental health and substance use. Amy risks losing her nursing licence and her job because she allegedly promoted women's sex-based rights and child protection online. In recent years, Amy has been the subject of an investigation by the British Columbia College of Nurses & Midwives [...]

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 [...].

Only women? Can no longer be
In 10 days' time -on 21 October- the UDI Emilia Romagna could be deleted from the Third Sector register unless it agrees to register men as well. This is how the left attacks women's political spaces - starting with the historical association linked to the Resistance - in the name of the trans-feminist 'inclusiveness' promoted by the PD. A huge risk for all feminism. They cannot win
Women's spaces under attack. Not only the physical ones - changing rooms, sports, shelter homes, hospital wards, prisons - but also the symbolic and political ones. If you don't admit men, close down and disappear. Incredible and exemplary is what is happening to UDI, Unione Donne in Italia, an association that has been active for almost 80 years historically linked to the left. Many of the UDIs in Emilia-Romagna are at risk of imminent cancellation from RUNTS, the single national register of the Third Sector, simply for the fact [...]
