UK like Canada and California: male bodies in female prisons. The House of Lords reaffirms this
Self-identification is enough to ask to be detained together with women. "Has the world gone mad?" protested Buckley peer Claire Fox. "How can we talk about fighting violence against women if we allow this?". But the government has no intention of changing its mind
UK. Prisoners with male bodies who "self-identify" as women can continue to be housed in women's prisons. This was confirmed by the House of Lords. A few months ago the High Court had already confirmed the legality of the practice: male-bodied convicts can be detained together with women "regardless of whether they have taken legal or medical measures to acquire their new gender", thus on the basis of a free self-declaration. The Under-Secretary of State for Justice, Tory Lord Wolfson of [...]

Mothers of hormone-treated children: their loneliness, their pain
When resisting chemical and surgical 'therapies' and calling for a more cautious approach to daughters and sons with dysphoria, these parents find themselves against everyone: friends, schools, doctors, therapists, politicians, media and culture. On how many fronts can one fight alone? American psychiatrist Miriam Grossman, who treats the despair of these families, tells the story.
Keira Bell, with her battle against the large London gender clinic Tavistock, has become the symbol of the thousands of young women mutilated and damaged for life because they do not conform to the stereotypes of femininity. Today we tell you what happens to parents of girls like Keira Bell through the words of a psychiatrist who has one of these mothers under treatment. Miriam Grossman is a child psychiatrist who has been working for decades on the problem of the sexualisation of children -of [...]

Luna and the 'mother' buyer who didn't want her
There was no attachment between the 'commissioning' woman and the child born from a surrogate mother. Out of "envious" rivalry towards the mother who gave birth to her. And because if you buy a child as a thing, you can always discard it. This case is just the tip of the iceberg of the complex relational dynamics that are triggered when you resort to this practice. And it is always the children who pay the highest price.
Luna, born through a surrogate mother, is a perfectly healthy child. The 'intended parents' (as the surrogate parents are usually called) usually have second thoughts when the child is born with a handicap. A few years ago there was the famous case of Gammy, suffering from Down's syndrome and a heart malformation, who was born to a Thai 'surrogate mother'. The Australian commissioners only took back the 'perfect product', a healthy twin, discarding the defective little brother. Despite financial difficulties (otherwise she would not have lent [...]

Canada: Alarm over male violence in women's prisons
Heather Mason, former prisoner and women's rights activist, tells RT News about the reality of women in prisons being sexually abused and violated by 'transgender' men with their male bodies intact in their cells. Here are their letters
In 2017, as the #MeToo movement exploded across the western world, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spontaneously and without warning gave the green light to transfer male inmates who call themselves women to Canada's federal women's prisons. Female inmates in Canadian prisons are at risk of violence from male inmates who identify as women, but no one is willing to discuss the issue for fear of being labelled transphobic. The [...]

Registering 'two fathers' violates the Constitution
In particular, it violates Article 3 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights, which requires us to be equal before the law. The male couple would in fact be allowed to lie about the filiationis status of the child, something that is never allowed to a mother, who is always required to declare the truth about the paternity of her child. Otherwise, they would be penalised. Unacceptable
The Court of Milan ordered the Municipality to transcribe in full the birth certificate with "two fathers" of a child born in the United States from a rented uterus and purchased oocyte. Since spring 2019, the municipality had suspended the transcriptions of these birth certificates, limiting itself to the transcription of the biological father only. A few months later, a ruling by the Court of Cassation had supported this decision, pointing the way to adoption so-called "in special cases" for the biological father's partner. Subsequently another [...]

Story of a detransitioner called Carol
'I was simply a lesbian, but I didn't accept it'. Her story demonstrates the dangers of a 'gender affirmative' model of care that accepts patients' self-diagnosis of being trans, standard practice in American transgender medicine.
Carol had long suspected that her daily life in rural California would be easier if she were a man. Yet she was amazed at how true this was. As a 'butch' (masculine) woman, (and 'not very smiley') she had regularly been treated with mild contempt, she says. After a double mastectomy and a few months of testosterone - which gave her facial hair and a gravelly voice - 'people, cashiers, everyone, suddenly became so damn [...].

Detransition: first scientific study
Conducted by psychiatrist Lisa Littman, who interviewed 100 detransitioners, the research highlights the complexity of these experiences. Doubts about the usefulness and effectiveness of pharmacological and surgical "therapies" are increasingly well-founded. Let us see why
After a year-long scientific evaluation, the results of the first systematic research on detransitioners have been published. The study by the American psychiatrist Lisa Littman is entitled "Subjects treated for gender dysphoria with medical and/or surgical transition who subsequently underwent detransition: Survey of 100 detransitioners" (full text here) Unlike previous studies, this research is conducted exclusively on people who underwent medicalisation for a diagnosis of gender dysphoria, and subsequently had [...].

Out the door, gender identity is already back in the window
Gender identity is back in the Senate, included in a PD-IV amendment to the Infrastructure bill. Rejected in the Zan bill, the concept reappears in other laws, bills and regulations. A real encirclement that preludes to new imminent attempts to introduce self-certification or self-id. *Ultim'now: the Infrastructures bill would already be law, approved just this morning
The Zan bill has stumbled mainly - but not only - on gender identity, the first step towards free self-certification of gender or self-identity. But once out the door, gender identity is trying to get back in through the window. Or rather, through the many windows of laws, local laws, regulations and codes that will use the concept anyway. An 'encirclement' that could allow a new attempt to pass the formula at the level of national legislation. After all, the battle for gender self-certification is in [...]

British government breaks with Stonewall
The Department of Health breaks its agreement with the large LGBTQ organisation, paid hundreds of thousands of pounds to lobby, imposing the'use of pronouns and free access for anyone to women's spaces based on free gender identity. Great news for British women and for all of us.
The British Department of Health has broken its agreement with Stonewall: it will no longer use its consultancy (lavishly paid: more than £300,000 of taxpayers' money paid to the big organisation so far) to apply its diversity scheme in favour of LGBT staff. The Department of Health is the latest high-profile organisation to distance itself from the lobby group, which has been heavily criticised for its influence and intrusiveness into public policy. A Department spokeswoman said: 'The year [...]

France: Transfeminism excludes gender critical women from anti-violence march
Nous Tous claims to command the French squares on the occasion of the international day against violence against women. Hundreds of radical feminists signed a petition against queer colonisation and the definition of Terf, which exposes them to the risk of verbal and even physical violence.
Questions of gender identity have now taken over the feminist debate. No other struggle in the history of mankind has progressed so quickly, with so many resources and so much visibility as the queer movement, or transactivism, which has been making demands for transgender people for the last ten years. Environmentalists, anti-specialists or simple left-wing activists, no one is immune to the advance of transactivism. However, the activism most affected by this issue is that of the fight for women's rights, to the point [...]

Zan draft law: calling things by their name
El verdadero nombre del proyecto de ley de Zan, bloqueado hace unos días en el Senado, debería haber sido "Proyecto de ley sobre la autocertificación de género" y no contra la homotransfobia. Ese era el verdadero objetivo, la autoidentificación, y por eso la ley se ha estancado. Sacrificar la legítima protección de las personas homosexuales y transexuales a la arrogancia del transactivismo queer.
Un breve comentario, tras archivar el proyecto de ley Zan sobre la homobi-transfobia, destinado principalmente a las hermanas y amigas no italianas que nos piden explicaciones; y a las italianas que aún no tienen claro lo que pasó. Hace más o menos un año, el proyecto de ley de Zan contra la homobiotransfobia fue aprobado en la Cámara de Diputados en medio del silencio y la desatención general. En ese momento, los medios de comunicación ocultaron por completo el debate, [...]
