Fathers who kill

Davide Paitone killed his son Daniele and seriously injured his mother. A violent man, already detained under house arrest. He was also incoherent and a drinker. Yet in the name of 'parental equality' he was allowed to keep the child with him for New Year's Eve, a decision that ended in tragedy. But the right of the father, even if notoriously aggressive, is what counts most

Davide Paitone, forty-year-old worker from Morazzone (Varese), is a violent man.

Already accused of family abuse, and also a drunkard, he also stabbed a colleague. after an argument and for this reason he was in the house arrest. Despite his violent temperament had been allowed to keep his 7-year-old son Daniel with him for New Year's Eve. Concession equivalent to a death sentence for the childwhose throat was slit by his father. After hiding the body in a wardrobe, the man reached the child's mother, from whom he was separating, and tried to kill her as well, fortunately without succeeding.

How is it possible that such a dangerous man was allowed to keep the child with him? This is actually quite 'normal'.

For two decades now, theories have been spreading from the United States that - with names and tools varying from the PAS up to 'relationship disorders' or 'developmental risks' - impose de facto shared custody and visitation rights and access to the child also on violent fathers in cases of separation or divorce.
In the field of juvenile and civil law on child custody after separation, negative theories have developed in connection with the concerts of "parental alienation'. or others "relationship or developmental disorders'. that indicate that it is dangerous for the child to be entrusted to the protective mother even in cases of violence by the father, but also positive theories inspired by the "equality' and 'gender neutrality of custody'.

Padri che uccidono
Daniele Paitone, 7 years old, killed by his father on the evening of 1 January

Year after year the so-called 'maternal preference' is increasingly being abandoned also in Europein the name of a 'progressive' concept of "equality', 'neutrality' or 'sharing', with the near impossibility for mothers to mention the violence in order not to be considered "hindering, symbiotic, adhesive, alienating".
Violent fathers should therefore have free access to their children, and at the same time share 'equal' responsibility with the mother even in cases of severe domestic violence.

Very often it happens that fathers are also violent with their children, both during and after the separation.But evidently the issue is not important enough for the courts, the operators, the institutions and the academy, where there are always many good women and men working, but the fashions of the moment lead to think that male violence against women is an outdated issue, of which possibly the woman herself is somehow guilty. 
Current proposals include that of report all mothers reporting domestic violence to social services, evidently to put them also and especially under the investigation lens.

The terrible figlicide in Varese today cannot be surprising. In Italy, in the United States and in every country in the world the slaughter does not stop, I count the life, energy and procreative force of women.

We are no longer asking the institutions to do anything, only to speak out.
Inform women. Tell them that if they have had children by violent men, they may never get rid of these men. That the state could continue to guarantee their right as pater familias until the end of their days, at the risk of their lives and those of their children.

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 [...].

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 [...]

Israel 7 October: Appeal for recognition as mass feminicide
The women victims of the Hamas attack were not killed like all other civilians: they were exposed naked, raped, brutalised, humiliated, decapitated, their bodies burnt and torn to pieces. "We wanted to dirty them," say the terrorists. The violence against these women meets the definition of mass feminicide: from France a petition to international NGOs

This History must end
War is not an invention of women. War reduces us to prey and makes us dumb things. Positioning ourselves -on this side or that side- does not give us peace. Peace is not the interval between one war and another. Peace is not helplessness but an active force that regulates relationships and settles conflicts. We demand that rebellious children recognise their mother's authority and shirk the obligation of acts of domination and overpowering
'War has always been the specific activity of the male and his model of virile behaviour'. Carla Lonzi, Manifesto of Women's Revolt, 1970 War is not our invention, nor is that desperate form of war that is terrorism. Positioning ourselves -on this side or that side- does not give us peace, it disorients and divides us, but we are not allowed any other movement than to seek refuge in an impossible extraneousness. We recognise ourselves with pain in the 'enemy'. [...]

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 [...]
