"SIGNIFICANT 'SMALL' VICTORY: FOR PETRILLO, TRANSATLETE, BAN ON WOMEN'S LOCKER ROOM ACCESS 

After the court ruling at the registry office Petrillo is a woman. But her body remains male. The female athletes demand and obtain from their federation that it does not access their reserved spaces. At least the existence of the problem is recognised. Then come the competition fields

It is, at the very least, an acknowledgement of the problem.

The athlete Petrillo a few months ago obtained the name change at the registry office -from Fabrizio to Valentina- but her body remains male. La locker room sharing therefore creates great embarrassment for the athletes. While waiting for the issue of the male bodies in women's sports, a small but significant victory: separate changing rooms will be set up for Petrillo. Which makes the'unbearability of the situation.

It is now a matter of moving from the locker room to the competition fields.

Because if you recognise that Petrillo's body is male before and after the competition, it is not clear why it should be female during the competition.

Here exchange of letters between the athletes and their federation, Fidal. With a fortunately positive outcome.


Good morning, on behalf of and on behalf of n 30 athletes who mandate me to do so, I request the following :
at some recent competitions, Ms Valentina Petrillo, anagraphically female but transgender in gender, i.e. with male body, accesses the women's locker room with obvious general embarrassmentalso considering the presence of young female athletes.
We therefore request that Ms Valentina Petrillo dedicated changing rooms are reserved at each competition ground, In particular, we ask that our request be granted at the upcoming Italian Masters Championships in Ancona.
I await your reply and send my best regards.

 Avv Mariuccia Fausta Quilleri  


Dear Lawyer,

we have received positive response from the President of the Marche Regional Fidal Committee, who provided a changing room reserved for Ms Petrillo at the upcoming Italian Master Championships in Ancona.

Best regards

The Federal Secretariat

Why Italy did not sign the EU declaration on LGBTIQ rights (it did sign another one though)
The declaration against homolesbobtransphobia signed in Europe by all the member states passed into silence. Great media clamour, on the other hand, over a second declaration not signed by Italy because it is strongly unbalanced on gender identity on the model of the Zan fu-ddl: here are all the critical points
A few days ago, on the occasion of the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT) in Europe, the following resolution was passed unanimously - including Italy, therefore: 1498th Meeting of the Committee of Ministers (7 May 2024) - EU Statement ahead of the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia on 17 May 2007.05.2024 Press and information team of the Delegation to the COUNCIL OF EUROPE in StrasbourgI have the honour to speak on behalf of the European Union and its [...]

UK: gender identity will no longer be discussed at school
A new crackdown by the Sunak government after the Cass report, which also warns of the risks of social transition of minors, the so-called 'alias identity' that has already been adopted by many Italian schools: in the classroom, it will no longer be taught that one can change sex and sex education will be calibrated according to age. And never without parental consent
After years and years of transactivists from associations such as Stonewall and Mermaids making the rounds with their sex education courses in English schools of all levels, Rishi Sunak's government announced today with Education Minister Gillian Keegan new mandatory guidelines for schoolchildren and students on these issues. Classrooms will no longer teach that you can change your gender identity, as has been the case until now [...]

From Gaza to western delivery rooms, Judith Butler sees fascists everywhere
Fascists, of course, we gender-critical feminists too, 'allies of the right and the Vatican'. The Californian intellectual, renouncing all philosophical subtlety, compiles a political agenda that coincides with the platform of the university students in struggle. And he calls for an alliance between trans people, antifa, the pro-Pal movement, the homeless, black people, migrants and even women - understood as one of many minorities - to build 'a radical democracy inspired by the ideals of socialism'. An account of the Bologna leg of his triumphant European tour
Perhaps today one could speak of the 'Butler Agenda': its platform coincides perfectly with the platform of struggle of the-students throughout the West, with little certainty as to whether the chicken or the egg was born first. Certainly Judith Butler is to all intents and purposes the mother of Gender Theory to which these student(s) (a minority anyway) enthusiastically adhere; in turn these student(s) with their mobilisations are a source of inspiration for Butler, their platforms are also a [...]

Trans surgery increases suicide risk
A very recent study of 90 million patients shows that trans-operated people run a 'significantly higher risk of suicide, death, self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder' and require psychiatric support. Thus, the completion of the long and arduous transition with 'affirmative' surgery does not ensure the achievement of the hoped-for well-being
"Gender affirmation surgery is associated with a significantly higher risk of suicide, death, suicide/self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder than control groups in this real-world database. Since suicide is one of the most common causes of death among adolescents and middle-aged individuals, it is clear that we must work to prevent these unfortunate outcomes. This further reinforces the need for comprehensive psychiatric care in the years following surgery for [...]

Saman: 'their culture' as a mitigating factor
The girl's marriage was 'arranged and not forced' and in the judgement 'the culture of the offender must also be taken into account': the reasons for the sentence (signed by female judges) for the brutal murder of the young Pakistani girl leave one bewildered. As well as the mother's self-sexism that would be the material executor of the crime. At this rate, according to Unicef projections, girls will continue to be sold to men for at least the next 300 years
Pictured is a poster with Saman's face composed of photos of many women victims of male violence. The story of Saman Abbas is an open wound. Killed by her family three years ago, her concealed body found more than a year after her death. At the beginning of this year, the funeral, with great public participation. A few days ago came the grounds for the verdict in the first-instance trial of Saman's family last December: life imprisonment to [...].

A few words to Mr Gennarone (he doesn't deserve any more)
The essence of fascism is to prevent anyone from speaking out. Whoever calls a woman ****** intends to intimidate, devalue and above all silence her. Ergo: a sexist cannot call himself an anti-fascist because sexism is incompatible with antifascism.
A few words to rapper Gennarone, author of fine lyrics (e.g. 'Stile foggiano, la mia terra la amo, dall'appennino dauno alle terre del Gargano. Take my hand ready for the journey through the land we live in') who during the 1 May concert in Foggia among many other things said that 'Italy is living in the shadow of fascism thanks to that ***** of Giorgia Meloni'. Just to remind him that: a) the essence of all fascism and totalitarianism is to prevent anyone from [...].
