The Zan bill stumbled mainly - but not only - on gender identity, first step in the direction of free self-certification of gender or self-id. But out the door, gender identity is trying to get back in through the window. Or rather, through multiple windows of laws, local laws, regulations and codes that will use the concept anyway.
A "encirclement" which could allow a new attempt to push the formula through in national legislation. Moreover, the battle for gender self-certification is ongoing throughout the western world, from Spain with the Ley Trans, to Germany and also to Japan, where the assault will soon return.
The Zan game was closed on 27 September, today gender identity is said to have already reappeared in an amendment proposed by the Democratic Party. (in particular, apparently by Raffaella Paita of IV and Alessia Rotta, Pd) and approved without discussion in the Infrastructure billcurrently under consideration by the Senate, an amendment which prohibits "any form of advertising whose content is discriminatory". also in relation to gender identity. As you can see, Amendment 1294 follows the text of the rejected draft. Here, too, it is not made clear what gender identity is, which makes the application of the ban uncertain.
After all, both Lazio Region either Apulia Region have already announced their intention to pass local laws against homobitransphobia. In Apulia thePd councillors Francesco Paolicelli and Donato Metallo have already deposited a text, signed by another 24 regional councillors of the centre-left majority, entitled "Provisions to guarantee the principle of equal opportunities and equal treatment with regard to guidance sexuality, gender identity and changes in sex characteristics'.
So, in addition to the undefined 'gender identity', there are the no less incomprehensible 'variations in sex characteristics'. (???).
The ghost continues to roam Europe. It is not exactly what Marx and Engels were thinking of.
