USA: woke capitalism threatens democracy
The case of the super-gay friendly Disney is emblematic, in revolt against the new Florida law that hinders teaching about gender identity in schools. The majority of American companies are pro-LGBTQ and are preparing strikes and reprisals against the popular will that goes in another direction. A real class struggle of CEOs and managers against the majority of citizens: Darel E. Paul's enlightening essay. Not to be missed
Schwa, gender-neutral bathrooms, queer theories, intersectionality, pro-sexual exploitation industry 'transfeminism', all the 'first-world problems' that the world of political correctness cares about go beyond left/right politics. They are the manifestations of a new economic power that experts call "woke capitalism". We present a summary of "Capital woke in the 21st century," an essay by Darel E. Paul, professor of political science at the prestigious Williams College, which examines the question of [...]

Boris Johnson: No male bodies in women's sports
Following a letter to the International Cycling Union calling the rules on the inclusion of transgender athletes discriminatory, Boris Johnson declared that 'trans women', i.e. men born biologically male, should not compete in women's sports and that women are entitled to spaces dedicated only to them.
Male-born 'inclusive' women's sport is currently the subject of a heated debate in the British media, not least in view of the forthcoming national elections (May 2022). The scandalous victories of Lia Thomas in America had already caused a stir, but the prospect of a similar case in Great Britain has raised the attention of female athletes and all women, and has also forced Prime Minister Boris Johnson to make a statement on the subject. In this case, the protest of the female athletes, expressed [...]

There is a war in Ukraine. Do you go to Prague to rent wombs?
Sold as 'altruistic' - but with 'reimbursement of expenses' equal to Ukrainian rates - GPA could become a new business in the Czech Republic given the tragedy in Kiev, where children are not picked up by clients frightened by the conflict. With all-inclusive packages, including cultural attractions and good restaurants. Meanwhile, in Spain, a Supreme Court ruling reiterates the severe condemnation of the practice of "reducing women and children to merchandise".
A very recent ruling by the Supreme Court in Spain states that the surrogate motherhood violates the rights of mothers and children "treated as mere commodities", reiterating the ban. The High Court affirms that this type of contract "causes damage to the best interests of the child and an exploitation of women that is unacceptable" and violates the fundamental rights recognised by the Constitution and international conventions on human rights, and therefore "is therefore manifestly contrary to our public order". Both women and [...]

Biden: yes to hormones for girls and boys
Unlike Sweden, Finland, the UK and Australia, pioneering countries which, in view of the damage caused by drugs on children with gender dysphoria, are returning to the priority of psychological therapy, the US is pushing for immediate pharmacologisation. And they call it "children's right", saying that any other approach is "discriminatory".
The US Department of Justice released a document endorsing the 'affirmative' approach to transitioning children, which involves immediately prescribing puberty-blocking drugs and hormones to girls and boys who say they are uncomfortable with their gender, skipping the psychological assessment so as not to delay medicalisation in any way. Abigail Shrier broke the news on Twitter (see here). Once again, the Biden administration has gone against the grain of countries pioneering gender identity, [...]

Generation Porn
A young woman tells how the consumption of pornography has influenced her sexuality and relationships, distancing her from the truth of her body. Convinced to believe that "porn is sex and sex is porn", her only desire is to please and look cool, accepting male violence as normal.
As in second-wave feminism, the issue of sexuality has returned to the forefront of girls' minds. Intensely practised in the 1970s, that territory was later abandoned in order to invest energies in other themes, first and foremost that of work. In the meantime, pornography has spread, especially since the birth of the web, reaching unimaginable levels of diffusion, heavily influencing the free search for pleasure of girls and adolescents. If for males the models borrowed from consumed pornography [...]

What does Jada think?
The feud between the two males on the Oscar stage - the mocker Chris Rock and the "knight" Will Smith, who "avenged" his wife who was teased for her alopecia - has gone round the world. To her only the part of the apple of discord. But the issue of aesthetic violence deserves to be explored and this would have been an excellent opportunity. Missed
Will Smith's slap on stage at the Oscars. The debate - was it a gag or was he serious? The turmoil backstage. The actor's repentance, his tears. A Hollywood story scrutinised far and wide. But the feelings of Jada Pinkett, Smith's wife, mocked by Chris Rock for her pathological alopecia, have not been addressed. All the words for them - the mocker and the avenging knight - and none for her. She writes about it here [...]

Carol, killed 5 times
The murderer, the mass media, a comedian: the overkill on Carol Maltesi's body was general. A mass BSDM game, a supplementary spectacle of the dead being torn to pieces. A snuff movie from life. After all, she was a porn star. She had it coming.
Carol Maltesi, the young woman brutally murdered and hacked to pieces by banker Davide Fontana, was killed five times. The first time, by the pornography industry -online and then also live shows- from which the girl had been captured during the lockdown to be able to provide for herself and her son, whom she had given birth to when she was just 20 years old. The second time by her tormentor, for whom we are looking for -as usual- reasons: he killed her [...].

Saviano's sister
What would the writer, who calls for the scrapping of the old Merlin law in order to 'regularise' 'sex work', think if the prostitute were a woman dear to him? Does he not know that prostitution is almost only trafficking and that regularisation is a godsend for pimps and mafiosi? Does he not know the abolitionist model already in force in many civilised countries? Does he not know that what he calls "work" is enormous female suffering? Why does he recognise the right of men to rape for payment? Why does he not study and listen to women before speaking? Where does he get such misogyny from?
I was once in a recording studio for a debate on prostitution. Of course it was called -not me- sex work, which made everything more acceptable and modern. There was a well-known, beautiful prostitute from Bologna, a woman who prostituted herself online, and they were talking about 'sexual assistance for invalids'. They were so free and up-to-date, I had been given the task of representing the sad counterbalance to bigoted moralism. It didn't come out well at all, I managed and [...]

Laura Massaro won for all
The most famous of the mothers under attack on the basis of the fictitious 'theory' of parental alienation has won her battle in the Court of Cassation, for herself and for all women in her situation: from now on, children can no longer be taken by force and it will no longer be so easy to talk about alienating mothers. It is also a symbolic victory, putting mothers back at the centre against all equalitarian rhetoric.
With Order No. 9691/2022, the Supreme Court of Cassation ruled in favour of Laura Massaro and banned parental alienation from the courts, defining the forced removal of minors, who must always be heard in proceedings concerning them, as contrary to the rule of law. A clamorous sentence - thanks to Laura's courage and to the amazing work of the lawyers Teresa Manente and Ilaria Bogliano - despite the bad auspices and the harshness of the outcome of the appeal, not to mention the inadmissible attempts to discredit Laura by "trying" her just 4 years ago.

Supreme Court: refugee status for a trafficking victim
Previous judgments that attributed tacit consent to the prostituted woman have been overturned: this must be excluded when there is physical and psychological violence. Even if translated into the neutral language of law, women's work opens up new avenues
The Court of Cassation's judgement 676/2022 recognised the refugee status of a woman who was a victim of trafficking (and a prostitute). In the third level of judgement, the system of the previous judgements was overturned, which had attributed to the woman a tacit consent to the exercise of prostitution, therefore the inexistence of the state of necessity that preludes the granting of refugee status (temporary, it should be noted). In fact, it is said that consent cannot be considered as such in a condition of physical and psychological violence inherent in [...].

'Lia' Thomas wins and the patriarchy rejoices
Not even the second scandalous victory of swimmer 'Lia' Thomas is enough to break the media silence on the incredible injustice of men's bodies in women's sports. In the meantime, Iowa has signed a decree to save competitions from these invasions. Another thirty or so US states are planning similar laws. And Australia's prime minister is committed to women's sport. BREAKING NEWS: FLORIDA GOVERNOR RON DESANTIS HAS REFUSED TO RECOGNISE THOMAS'S VICTORY AND HAS DECLARED HIS COMPATRIOT EMMA VEYANT (RUNNER-UP) THE LEGITIMATE WINNER OF THE COMPETITION.
"Lia" Thomas, THE trophy-stealing swimmer (see here), easily won the American University League (NCAA I) final, as predicted. However, she did not receive any ovations at the finish line. All the applause went to the girls, the real winners: runner-up Emma Weyant, Erica Sullivan (third) and Brooke Forde (fourth). The photo of the podium (top) is worth a thousand words: Thomas towers alone on the left, in front of the sign with the number 1, while the three girls embrace and celebrate [...].

Vladimir Putin and 'gender freedoms'.
His 'spiritual' war on gender and the corrupt West is just propaganda. Most Westerners are against self id and trans-industry, which is as much (glittery) patriarchy as his own, hungry for power and money.
In his horrifying speech, which was picked up by the newspapers, Vladimir Putin not only called the alleged traitors of Russia, i.e. anyone who says no to the war - including many courageous women such as the journalist Marina Ovsyannikova, the fashion influencer Belonika-Veronika Belotserkovskaya, Yelena Osipova, an elderly woman arrested for expressing her demand for peace, and many others - Vladimir Putin also spoke of a West weakened and weakened by its softness, including so-called 'gender freedoms'. To the theme [...]
