A video every 10 minutes

The brutal murder of Alessandra Matteuzzi, hammered to death by her ex-boyfriend, is the perfect representation of every feminicide: the murderer is not someone who loses control, but one who restores it. Her death serves to restore the balance lost as a result of the abandonment. Violence is a function of domination. It's here that one must keep one's gaze to be able to stop it

The killing of Alessandra Matteuzzi, the woman from Bologna murdered by her ex with a hammer and iron bench, is the plastic and perfect representation of the dynamics of every feminicide.

Giovanni Padovani is not crazyhe is not a drop out, he is a young man in perfect shape, integrated in the world, even a spokesperson for campaigns against violence against women. In short you would never have guessed, as you almost always do.

Un video ogni 10 minuti
Giovanni Padovani testimonial in a campaign against violence against women

Alessandra is subjected to continuous and unprecedented harassment: must justify every movement, every breath, is forced to send videos every 10 minutes so that he always knows where she is, with whom, how she is dressed, what she is doing. He takes over her social profiles to also control her online life and asks her to delete all male contacts. She tries to humour him 'not to arouse his anger'.until she cannot take it any longer and decides to leave him. He does not tolerate abandonment, He persecutes her in every way, he breaks into her house through the terrace, he cuts off the light of the apartment building where she lives to force her to go out, he harasses her with constant phone calls, he ambushes her constantly. She convinces herself to report him, she is terrified, but as you know the complaint is not followed by immediate restrictive measures. He leaves for Bologna with a hammer in his backpackdetermined to end the affair in his own way. He intercepts her as she is returning home, on the phone to her sister for self-protection, and brutally attacks her until he kills her. A neighbour rushes to her aid, but is unable to stop him. He wants to kill her and succeeds.

"The world will not jump if man no longer has the psychological balance based on our subjugation". wrote Carla Lonzi in her Women's Revolt Manifesto. The 'disease' is present from the very beginning: only being able to stand if you have someone to control and oppress, the heel on your neck, the blind terror of your freedom. She wriggles out of control and you fall ruinously, your identity crumbling: a symbolic death. Like someone who is drowning, you attach yourself to the neck of her who wanted to free herself, you drag her down hoping that her death will restore your equilibrium. She is no longer there, but not because she left you, not because of her will, but because of yours. You finally regained the control you had lost.

The feminist does not 'lose control' but re-establishes it.

The fight against men's violence against women is not working and feminicides are not decreasing because one continues to keep one's eyes on the terminal fact (the acting out in the violent gesture, in many cases up to the killing) which in reality is only a device and a function of domination, is to reiterate and re-establish it again and again, with exhausting labour. The issue is the dominance of men over women, This is where one must look without being distracted by the details in the news of each individual case. The game is always the same and never changes.

It is a matter of finding your way in the direction of a way of being in the world as men that is no longer based on the subjugation of women. No longer requiring the symbolic death of women -in many cases until their actual death- to ensure an honourable existence according to the unwritten rules of the pact between men or sexual contract.

Not a few men who have already set out on this road of transformation and one must hope for them.

The 'milk' of men
The English National Health Service ensures that the milk produced by a male body -stimulated with ad hoc drug therapy- is as good for the newborn as that of its mother, who is wiped out. Minimising the risks to the child's health largely offset by the ideological and symbolic benefits. It is the transhuman, my beauties!
Men's 'milk' is a perfect example of what we call transhuman. Women's milk, on the other hand, is human, all too human, it is the perfect model of the enduring human, and therefore natural breastfeeding should be degraded, mocked, stigmatised as something to be ashamed of and kept hidden. In fact, it is even a useless and unethical act. On the contrary, promoting and magnifying male 'breastfeeding' shows plastically the way forward. According to the prestigious journal Pediatrics, organ of the American Academy of Pediatrics, it is 'risky' to define [...]

Men IntintA and other wonders
The health of 'Marco', a trans FtM who is five months pregnant with testosterone, and that of her baby are the least of the problems. What matters to the liberal press talking about an 'anthropological revolution' is whether 'Marco' is to be called mother or father. But only a woman can give birth even if at the registry office her name is male. In this nothing has changed since the dawn of time. In the meantime, the trans front is losing ground: in one year, the number of members of WPATH, the largest transgender health organisation, has fallen by 60 per cent.
La Repubblica online headlines with a triple somersault about the 'young man who got pregnant': pregnant is not dared even at the transphilic GEDI group. The story is that of 'Marco', a girl undergoing testosterone therapy to look more like a man: beard, graver voice -not to 'become male' because sex cannot be changed and every single cell will remain damned XX-. 'Marco' had retained his uterus and ovaries and following a hetero sexual relationship (a [...]

Child rapists: shock report in UK
In Great Britain, 18 rapes a day are committed by minors on their peers: in 2022 these cases numbered 15,000, almost always by very young males. A British police report shows how free access to violent pornography online is normalising criminal sexual behaviour in England and all other Western countries
For years, we have been reporting on the psychological and material damage produced on an entire generation by free access to violent online pornography, consumed by boys and girls from the age of 7 but also much earlier: gang rapes committed by minors are just the tip of the iceberg of this dramatic phenomenon, which has now been analysed and quantified by a study by the British police. On this topic you can find previous articles here, here, here and here. We were almost only [...]

When abortion is violence
A large number of abortions can be explained by the irresponsibility and 'running away' of men. "For whose pleasure am I aborting?" wondered Carla Lonzi. But this male violence is never mentioned and women continue to be blamed. As the ProVita do with their proposal to force them to listen to the fetus' heartbeat
Admittedly, I told ProVita's Maria Rachele Ruiu in all frankness that forcing a woman intending to have an abortion to listen to the fetus' heartbeat is not an admissible proposal. It is a senseless, sadistic, punitive and probably unconstitutional idea that would probably only have the effect of encouraging clandestine abortion. Perhaps the proposal will never go on the table and will remain mere propaganda. Bad propaganda though. Once again in the crosshairs there [...]

Trials and rapes
The questions asked in the courtroom to the alleged victim of sexual violence by Ciro Grillo and his companions are very reminiscent of the tone of the defence lawyers in the famous 1979 'Rape Trial'. The formidable harangue of Tina Lagostena Bassi, plaintiff's lawyer in that case, explains why these interrogation methods were - and remain - unacceptable. Let's listen to it again
It is worth re-reading and possibly re-listening to -the award-winning film Rape Trial, 1979*, you can see it again here in its entirety- the formidable harangue of lawyer Tina Lagostena Bassi, plaintiff's counsel in defence of a young woman raped by four men who had lured her to a villa in Nettuno under the pretext of a job offer. The trial ended with a conviction but the defendants received conditional release. It is worth listening to that harangue again because in the words [...]

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 [...].
