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'.

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.

Italian Society of Paediatrics: stopping puberty in dysphoric children does not cause permanent problems. But several studies prove otherwise
UK, Sweden, Finland, USA: much of the world is up in arms against puberty blockers that can irreversibly damage the health of girls and boys. The Tavistock clinic in London is closing down, a thousand families are preparing for a class action in defence of their daughters and sons who have not been properly treated, many American paediatricians are attacking their trade association which is pushing for the administration of these drugs. But for the Italian paediatricians' society these problems do not exist
According to the Italian Society of Paediatrics, the effects of puberty blockers used to treat girls and boys with gender dysphoria are perfectly REVERSIBLE: this means that if the girl/boy changes her mind about her intention to 'change sex' and suspends the 'therapy', her development will resume normally, without any definitive effects and/or health problems. This is not the case at all. The effects of puberty blocker therapy are by no means 'completely reversible', as has been demonstrated by several [...]

California, transfusion of children
The American state proposes itself as a 'health' tourism destination for minors who are unable to access transition where they live. Exempting the parents and relieving the operators of any risk of litigation in the event of subsequent 'repentance'. Meanwhile in the UK, after the closure of the Tavistock, eyes are on a Scottish clinic where the experimental model (puberty blockers and surgery) continues to be applied
There is a real war going on in the United States over the ideology of gender identity and its promotion in schools. A 'culture war' pitting the elites, who fund and promote gender ideology, against the ordinary people who oppose it (see the Disney case here). While Biden from day one has made many legislative concessions to trans activism at the federal level, the Republicans have intercepted the discontent of the citizenry with various counter-legislation at the state level, such as [...]

Worker yes. Minister no. Woman neither
If there is one thing Italian politicians all agree on, it is the erasure of women, starting with language. While the 'progressive' left erases us with asterisks and schwa -fake-inclusive language that returns everything to the masculine- the right refuses to use the feminine for women of authority in institutions. But words are important because they make reality
Incredibly -and with a secret vote, wickedly conceded by President Casellati- a few days ago, the Senate rejected the Maiorino amendment authorising women in the institutions to be called by their names. This issue has profound political relevance. Many poets over the centuries have made use of poetic licences, i.e. intentional grammatical, metrical and syntactic errors with the intention of emphasising a concept or altering the sonority of the composition. On 27 July 2022 at Palazzo Madama is [...]

UK. Black week for the glittering trans-patriarchy: closed the Tavistock, gender clinic for children. And Allison Bailey wins in court: she was discriminated against for her gender critical views
The ideology of gender identity under attack in UK: NHS orders closure of paediatric transition clinic and points the way to psychological therapies. And Allison Bailey wins employment tribunal case backed by JK Rowling: employer ordered to compensate her for putting her 'under investigation' because of her gender critical views. At the suggestion of Stonewall, who comes out of it with her reputation in tatters
CLOSES TAVISTOCK, CHILDREN'S TRANSITION CLINIC: 'AFFIRMATIVE' APPROACH (DRUGS AND SURGERY) IS DANGEROUS FOR YOUNG PATIENTS The news is sensational: the British National Health Service (NHS) has ordered the closure of the Tavistock & Portman gender clinic for failing to ensure the safety of young patients, most of whom are girls (full article here). The clinic has been accused by several parties of hastily initiating many minors, most of them suffering from spectrum disorders [...].

Argentina: stop neutral language in schools
E' was the first country to introduce gender self-identification. Ten years later it is among the first to ban neutral language in schools as it is 'not even that inclusive: it creates a barrier for children with learning difficulties'
In 2012, Argentina was the first country in the world to introduce self-id or gender self-identification into its legal system. Ten years later, it is one of the first countries to ban neutral language in schools. As taught by the mothers of radical feminism and difference thinking, the neutral is a red herring that actually brings the male point of view back to the centre. If the illusion of the neutral is less noticeable in the English language, it is immediately [...]

Petrillo's stolen records: 'But I also won as a man'. Is this true? Here's the fact-checking
While the Olympic Committee announces a change in the guidelines on the participation of male bodies in women's sports, Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo aspires to participate in the Paralympic Games in the women's category. To those who accuse her of wanting to win easily, she replies that she was winning even before the transition. But this is not the case: here is an analysis of Petrillo's times and how they are evaluated in the male and female categories respectively
After the international federations of swimming, cycling and other sports, even the Olympic Committee is backtracking on the 'inclusive' sport of male bodies in women's sports. Francesco Ricci Bitti at the head of ASOIF, the association that brings together the international federations of summer Olympic sports, announced at a recent conference the need to review the current rules on the participation of transgender athletes, especially MtF, men who 'identify as women'. Francesco Ricci Bitti said, "According to the human rights approach [...]
