Sweden, Karolinska hospital admits: we have damaged the health of children with hormones
Self-report by Sweden's largest children's transition centre: In the case of 'Leo', a girl treated with puberty blockers at the age of 11, now suffering from osteoporosis and other diseases, the drugs caused 'serious injuries'. And there are at least 12 other cases of young people irreparably damaged. When will Italy deal with this issue?
As we have already reported, 'pioneering' Sweden - along with many other western nations - has decided to put an abrupt stop to hormone treatments for girls and boys with gender dysphoria. Now Sweden's largest centre for such treatments, the Karolisnka Hospital, has admitted that it has damaged the health of at least a dozen children with puberty blockers. How long will we have to wait for the Italian Parliament to take up the issue, saving the lives of 'gender non-conforming' girls and boys [...]

Twenty years of feminicides in Milan: a study
The research, conducted by the Institute of Forensic Medicine on 200 cases of murdered women, identifies certain constants and aims to contribute to 'putting an end to feminicide'. Even if the real solution is only one: the end of male domination.
The journal Science & Justice (volume 62-2, March 2022, pp. 214-220) published the study "Twenty years of femicide in Milan: A retrospective medicolegal analysis" (you can read it here). The study was conducted by Lucie Biehler-Gomez, Lidia Maggioni, Stefano Tambuzzi, Alessandra Kustermann, Cristina Cattaneo, the research team affiliated with the Laboratory of Forensic Anthropology and Odontology (LABANOF) of the University of Milan and/or the Sexual and Domestic Violence Service (SVSeD) of the Policlinico [...].

Sweden puts the brakes on child transitions
It is precisely the countries that pioneered hormone treatment for children with dysphoria (from the Great North to Australia) that have taken a decisive step backwards, indicating psychological therapy as the first approach, and drugs only in exceptional cases. Even the British health service is calling for a radical rethink of protocols. Studies are lacking to show that the benefits of pharmacological 'treatments' outweigh the damage. But in Italy puberty blockers continue to be prescribed.
Great Britain, Australia, Texas, Iowa and other US states, and now Sweden: the pioneer countries in the transition of minors treated with puberty blockers before development, put the brakes on abruptly and point to psychological and psychiatric therapies as the first approach to dysphoria in girls and boys. In Italy, on the other hand, the use of puberty blockers does not stop, and there is a complete lack of data on the number of minors and protocols applied. The Swedish decision, anticipated by the Karolinska [...]

Self-id is a disaster for transgender people: Debbie Hayton speaks out
One of the UK's most famous transwomen, the journalist attacks the draft law promoted by the Scottish government. She insists that this innovation would be ill-advised for T people, not just women. And she sides with JK Rowling.
For transgender people like me, the Scottish government's bill to reform the Gender Recognition Act is a disaster. If passed unamended, the bill would introduce 'self-id', wiping out the checks and balances that make the gender reassignment process trustworthy in the eyes of the public. This is not an insignificant administrative detail: allowing any man to actually call himself a woman just because he wants to is an affront to the [...]

Are you gender critical? You don't get in the USA
The Global Respect Act, a bill being considered by the US Congress, would ban entry visas for anyone who has been responsible for discriminatory acts against LGBT people, or who has induced such acts in third parties. It is enough, therefore, not to adhere to the gender ideology and to think - as we do - that sex is real to no longer be able to enter the United States.
A world gone mad. In the East a brutal dictator is invading a neighbouring country, in the West the ideological drift is producing monsters. If with the Scottish novelty of the super self-id we thought we had reached the top of gender ideology - the request to be able to intervene on the birth certificate to change one's original sex at will, hiding it permanently, and to be able to say that one was born a woman even if one is a man to all effects - well, we were wrong. In the USA they have gone even further. A [...]

Free choice of sex: Scotland tries it this time
The law introduces a "super self-id" that allows any man, for whatever reason, to change his birth certificate, even without any medical act, in order to be able to say that he is a woman from birth and hide his biological male sex from everyone. Revealing it will be a crime
The Scottish Parliament started the debate on the reform of the Gender Recognition Act, a law that allows people with a medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria to obtain a "certificate of recognition of gender identity" (GRC). The reform, tabled by MP Shona Robison (Scottish National Party), calls for a "de-pathologisation" of the GRC, i.e. it would introduce gender self-determination (Self ID), allowing those who do not suffer from any dysphoria but identify as transgender to change their sex on their birth certificate [...].

Against war, finding words
We invite you to share your thoughts on the situation in Ukraine, removing them from the battlefield of social networks. Words to help us put order back into the huge mess that is war, to find a sense that has been lost. Send us your texts
War is an absolute loss of meaning, the replacement of words with violent gestures. Keeping words alive, investing them with trust, giving birth to new ones is a very precious work that can stem the destruction. Not so much and not only the words that serve for diplomacy and negotiation. Above all, the words that help us put order back into the huge mess that is war, to find the sense that has been lost. Not the words of the flames on social networks, which force us to take [...]

Manifesto of Russian feminists against the war
As Russian citizens and feminists, we condemn this war. Feminism as a political force cannot be on the side of a war of aggression and military occupation. The feminist movement in Russia fights for the weakest and for the development of a just society with equal opportunities and prospects, in which there can be no room for violence and military conflict.
On 24 February, at around 5:30 a.m. Moscow time, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a "special operation" on the territory of Ukraine to "denazify" and "demilitarise" this sovereign state. This operation had been in preparation for a long time. For several months, Russian troops had been moving to the border with Ukraine, but the authorities of our country denied any possibility of a military attack. We now know that this was a lie. Russia has declared war on its neighbours. [...]

The strength you need (if it's not too late)
Angela Merkel knows better than anyone else the reality of the East, she has always been in dialogue with Putin and has the necessary authority to represent Europe, which today is struggling to find a face, in an extreme attempt at mediation. If there is still time to stop the war. But perhaps there is time to contain the damage.
War is the absolute absurd, and it is proving it again, plunging us into aphasia. Words seem to lose their meaning when brutality is deployed as in these hours. Among the most sensible ones, clinging to reality, are those of a Ukrainian woman to a young Russian soldier: 'Take these sunflower seeds, put them in your pocket. When you die, flowers will grow. It resembles what Etty Hillesum left us saying: 'To flower and bear fruit in whatever soil one is planted - not [...]

Womb for rent fair in Milan: open letter to Mayor Sala
Scheduled for 21-22 May, the event will re-launch the GPA business after a slowdown due to the pandemic. But in Italy, advertising the buying and selling of children is a crime. We therefore call on the Mayor, the Council and the City Council to alert the police and to take any initiative against this blatant violation of the law.
To the Mayor of Milan Beppe Sala To the City Council We have learned that on 21-22 May Un Sogno Chiamato Bebè (A Dream Called Baby) will be held in Milan at the Spazio Antologico-East End Studios in via Mecenate 84. The fair is organised by the same promoters of the "salon", which has already been held in Paris, Cologne, Munich and Berlin, and is coming to Italy for the first time (see here and here). The aim is to relaunch a business, that of buying and selling children, a "sector" which at the moment is [...]

Ukraine: there is also the drama of 'surrogate' mothers
Ukraine is Europe's baby-making factory: thousands are born every year. Today, in order to save the 'product' and the investment, the rich commissioners demand that pregnant mothers leave the country on the brink of war, separating from their families and children. Further violence against these poor and exploited women
Ukraine is on the brink of war. The world is on tenterhooks, Europe could be facing a conflict at home, those who can leave the country but there are also those who do not want to. Like Natalia, 29, a surrogate mother who called her lawyer the other day to find out if she could be forced to leave the country by the 'intended parents', the people who ordered her child. Natalia, the name is fictional, has a husband and children, for [...]
