L'ultracorpo maschile della transatleta Petrillo continua a vincere tutto. Le avversarie reagiscono

Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo, class of 1973, turns 50 this year and changes category in national masters athletics competitions. On 11 and 12 March in Ancona, she competed in the F50 category for the first time, that is, with female athletes aged 50 to 54. And again, with its ultra-male body, easily racked up trophies and records that belonged to female athletes.

But What is it like to see a live ultra-male body competing against female bodies? What are the reactions of female athletes, spectators and experts?

Today we present a report of the Ancona race on 12 March by Marco Alciator, a statistician who has already analysed Petrillo's performance in detail before and after the transition from male to female (here) and her numerous records in the women's category of Paralympic and masters competitions (here).

When I arrived at the arena I was able to speak with one of the leading figures in the Italian masters sector with international titles, who confirmed to me how the masters climate (over 35) is 'friendly but there is real competition and nothing is given away'. Also from one of the competition judges I was able to get a statement on the event and a thought on 'combating unfair competition through doping'.

The race of interest this time is the 200m category F50 because Petrillo, class of '73, rose through the ranks at national level. The highlight is the 4th series, the fastest one. When Petrillo and the four athletes enter the track, the different physicality is immediately noticeable. At the beginning Cristina Sanulli seemed to be able to hold her own against Petrillo, but at the last moment she overtook her with a sprint and takes first place.

Cristina Sanulli crossed the finish line second, followed by Denise Neumann and Agnese Rossi (here the video, from 32'30"). The three of them should be on the podium, were it not for the fact that Petrillo is still unbelievably entitled to compete in the women's category: in the men's M50 category with his time he would have finished 14th, more than two seconds behind.

At the end of the race, a 'Brava Cristina!' could be heard from the stands, followed by a liberating and convinced applause from the tribune, largely composed of athletes and other team members in uniform. At that point Petrillo loses control, he leans over and shouts two or three times: 'Dedicated to all those who want to hurt me', and here he is picked up by the referees. It must be said that I did not hear any insults or even booing towards her, the focus was on supporting the athletes.

The moral winner is definitely Cristina Sanulli, with a time that would have earned her the Italian record in her category, but bureaucratically it is not his. Petrillo's time is recorded for now. Note how the speaker has a jolt of authenticity and ask -away from the microphones but audibly-: "But can it be given as a record?" (video, at minute 34'10").

The award ceremony quickly takes place with the presentation of a medal and T-shirt, but with an obvious sense of unfairness for what we see before our eyes: an athlete who was regional level in the men's category who now, as a 'woman', beats international champions despite being visually impaired.

I can talk to injured athletes. Agnes Rossi under fair sporting conditions she would have stood on the podium, which she was denied today, and she is very clear when she says: "The sporting spirit is to recognise when there are stronger athletes, but competition must take place with respect for the category: with female athletes of the same sex, not with those who have maintained male bodies." And he is particularly convincing when he recalls the time taken away from family and work in order to achieve his goal.

Denise Neumann, world-class athlete, manages to get on the podium but she was denied her second place. Thanks for the support for women's sport received and hopes that this year will bring novelties in terms of rules and a return to fair competition, listening to the voices of the athletes. Neumann thinks of the new generation of girls: "The medals can be retrieved at a later date, but the gratification taken away on the day of the competition cannot be returned.

Here then Cristina Sanulli, the fastest, doubly damaged, deprived of victory and a national masters record. She is delighted with her chronometric performance of 26.50, perhaps the best indoor time ever, but with "a bit of bitterness in her mouth because [my time] It would have been an Italian record but Valentina Petrillo with a time of 26.25 beat it for me.

Sanulli adds: 'I also speak for most of the girls who run with me: we do not feel equal, precisely because [Petrillo's] physical structure is male, and so it is like running not at par. [...] Although the [personal] path Valentina has taken is respectable, athletically speaking it is not, and in this we feel very discriminated against."

Cristina Sanulli also recalls her 30-year career and sacrifices, and the many aspects that contribute to high-level results: a passion for sport, consistent dedication to training, specific diet and grit.

This brings Petrillo's master titles, which pre-transition had no titles, to eight. In addition to the record in the 200m, the day before was Petrillo's 400m victory over Cassandra Sprenger, with the list of dozens of damaged and unheard athletes growing longer.

Valentina Petrillo is already registered for the World Masters Athletics Championships to be held in Torun, Poland, from 26 March to 1 April. At the international level, the change of category takes place on the birthday, so Petrillo, who will turn 50 in October, will still compete this year in the 45-49 age category. When he was Fabrizio was not among the top 20 in Italy, as Valentina will soon be on the world podium.

Open letter to Health Minister Schillaci: medically assisted procreation does not increase the birth rate. On the contrary, it is among the causes of the demographic winter
Free homologous fertilisation and a €1,500 ticket for heterologous fertilisation: the minister announces new measures that would help stem the birth crisis. But it is the exact opposite: the more we feed the illusion of being able to postpone the birth of a child ad libitum - the results of PMA are poor: in more than 8 out of 10 cases it fails - the fewer children will be born. There is only one way: infertility prevention. Starting with correct information against the propaganda of the reproductive biomarket
Dear Minister Schillaci, we learn from press reports that as of 1 January next year the National Health Service will provide homologous fertilisation services free of charge and that it has established a co-payment for heterologous fertilisation - the responsibility of the region - which is expected to be around 1,500 euro. The provision would be part, according to him, of the measures against the birth rate in our country: less than 400 thousand births in 2022, the lowest number since the unification of Italy to date. In reality, as he explains [...]

UK, you can no longer say 'woman' or 'mother': woke provisions of the General Medical Council
Decision of unprecedented violence by the British Medical Register: the word woman must be deleted at every level. It cannot even be mentioned when discussing motherhood, childbirth, breastfeeding, menopause. Even 999, the emergency number, can no longer ask what sex the person asking for help is. The woke know very well that the female body is the main obstacle to the transhuman project. And they want to erase it even in language
It keeps happening: women and mothers must also be erased from the vocabulary, at every level. They do not give up because the maternal symbolic is the most resistant obstacle to the transhuman project. We will not give up either. Forget it The General Medical Council -the public body that maintains the official register of doctors in the UK- has replaced the word 'mother' with neutral terms in its maternity guide for staff. The updated guide for employees who become pregnant omits [...]

The new PD proposal on surrogate children is wrong: here's why
The idea is a facilitated 'rewarding' path -only four months- for the adoption of children born by gestation for others: a quasi-automatism that instead of counteracting it would encourage recourse to the practice. Moreover, a difference is made between this type of adoptee -GPA clients- and all others for whom the timing would not change. But the Constitution wants us equal before the law
The PD has deposited in the Senate -first signatory the cathodem Alfredo Bazoli, deputy vice-president of the PD group- a bill that provides for a 'special adoption' so-called 'affective' for the children of hetero or homo couples born from uterus for rent. Basically, it accepts the procedure of adoption in special cases of those born by Gpa for the 'intentional' parent, but calls for it to be accelerated to arrive at a ruling within four months. The court, therefore, the text reads, "shall verify whether the [...]

Female wombs in male bodies
The envious dream of all time -to be able to have children without women, to erase mothers, in short, the Grail- is getting closer and closer to being realised: in five to ten years' time, even biologically male trans people will be able to receive a womb transplant and conduct a gestation. An 'inclusive' wish-right that would improve their quality of life and alleviate the symptoms of dysphoria. While the lives and health of girls and boys born from these practices are of no concern to bioethicists
Euronews reports on the rapid progress of research on the uterus transplantation front, with particular reference to the request of trans MtF people whose bodies remain biologically male, while FtM people, if they retain their female genital apparatus, can undertake a pregnancy like any other woman: the 'pregnant fathers' that the mainstream press likes to report on are none other than women who self-identify as men. In the article, which we translate here, women are referred to as cis- women, suffixed [...]

Appeal to the FDA: no more silence on puberty-blocking drugs
A petition asks the US drug agency -which has never authorised the off-label use of these substances for girls and boys with dysphoria- to counter the misinformation that propagates these treatments as effective and safe and to demand studies to prove it.Between 207 and 2021, the number of minors treated has more than doubled and the FDA can no longer pretend it is blind.
On his site Gender Clinic News Bernard Lane reports on an important petition to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration, US drug regulator) to take urgent action on the unapproved (off label) use of hormone suppressant drugs to block puberty in girls and boys who identify as transgender. Although this use has never been approved by the FDA, it is not possible for the agency to ignore the possible harm to minors who are subjected to these [...].

Spain: inmate pregnant with trans cellmate
The man -intact male body and no hormone therapy- had asked and obtained to be moved to the women's prison in Alicante because he 'self-perceived' to be a woman (self-id). A cellmate's pregnancy was the result. And the new Ley Trans, in force since December 2022, will make such transfers easier and more frequent
In the Alicante Cumplimiento Penitentiary Centre, known as Fontcalent Prison, an inmate identifying himself as a woman impregnated a cellmate. According to the account confirmed by several prison sources, the inmate had been serving a sentence in the male module of the prison for several years, but during his stay he started to identify himself as a woman. On his papers he continues to appear as a man and has never undergone hormone treatment, let alone surgery. [...]
