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.

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 [...]

Slavoj Žižek: puberty blockers are woke capitalism
The Marxist philosopher speaks of wokeness, the progressive cult of awareness and awakening, giving an evocative psychoanalytic reading of it. And warns that despite appearing under attack today we will have to deal with it for a long time to come
In an evocative article published by Compact, entitled Wokeness is here to stay -which we translate and partially reproduce here- the Marxist philosopher Slavoj Žižek tackles the subject of wokeness, the movement of 'awakening', analysing its critical aspects but also underlining the reasons why we will have to deal with it for a long time to come. Some argue that 'wokeness' is in decline. In reality it is gradually being normalised and conformed even by those who inwardly doubt it, and is practised by most academic institutions, [...].

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 [...].

Women and the left: a toxic love
Betrayed, abused, humiliated. And finally supplanted by self-identified neo-women who are far more attractive and functional than the 'old' women by birth. Yet many among us cannot break away from the progressives who show in every way that they do not consider them. The same dynamics of a sick relationship
All loves are born and die, and when they end there is always the one who suffers the most, sometimes only one party, the one who loved sincerely, the other perhaps not, perhaps he was lying. And we women believed in love with the left side seriously, with all our hearts: naively we thought we were the favourites, we believed in promises, even those that clearly appeared false. Carla Lonzi already reminded us half a century ago that the left had sold us 'to the hypothetical Revolution', and even overseas the [...]

PD primaries: transfeminist Elly Schlein wins
The young leader launches her OPA and wins it. By making the Democratic Party a woke formation, in line with western progressivism: di-rightism, free gender identity, uterus for rent, sex work. A challenge reminiscent of what is happening in Spain where radical feminism has divorced the Left
To begin with, congratulations to Elly Schlein and best wishes for her new post. Then the facts, as I see them. Elly Schlein's victory was a takeover of the PD: the vote in the gazebo, for the first time different from the one in the circles - also a historical novelty - shows that Schlein has mobilised the radical left to the limits of antagonism, as well as the 5 stars. She said it years ago: Occupy PD. Now she has done it. That she is supported by a major part [...].
