What is gender?
"If gender identity is a spectrum, then we are all 'non-binary' because none of us fit into the points represented by the extremes of that spectrum. Each one of us will exist at a unique point on the spectrum." Rebecca Reilly-Cooper, philosopher and lecturer at the University of Warwick, reveals the fallacy of the concept of gender as a spectrum.
"What is gender?" This is a question that goes to the heart of feminist theory and practice, proving to be central to current activist debates on social justice issues concerning class, identity and privilege. In everyday conversations the word 'gender' is a synonym for what would more accurately be called 'sex'. Perhaps because of a vague squeamishness about pronouncing a word that also describes sexual intercourse, the word gender is euphemistically used to refer to the given [...]

"You are like crocodiles': a mother's letter to a 'gender' association
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, must have been a great disappointment to the TRA, the adepts-propagandists of the transcult. Respectfully raised by her parents as John and dressed in boys' clothes as per her specific request, at 14 John returned as Shiloh and goes around with her sisters hunting for girls' clothes. Shiloh was not given puberty blockers or hormones. She was simply left free to choose jackets, ties, short hair and name [...]

Ashli and the others: who the American supremacists are
This text originated as a Facebook post. We asked the author Barbara Poggio to reproduce it in Feminist Post. It seems to us to be worth it. "Six people died in the clashes on Capitol Hill: three protesters in the crowd, two policemen on duty at the Capitol and a woman, killed inside the building. It will be above all the name of the latter, Ashli Babbitt, that will be remembered, given that, for the movements that participated in the protests and the assault, she has already become a martyr. Ashli [...]

What is the place of women in the Great Reset?
Covid-19-The Great Reset (Klaus Schwab and Thierry Malleret, Forum Publishing 2020: no Italian translation yet) illustrates the project of rebuilding the world after the Coronavirus (BC). I don't think that would be the world I would like to live in. The point of observation: Schwab is founder and president of the World Economic Forum -the text is formally the WEF's proposal for post-pandemic reconstruction and will be the focus of the Davos 2021 dialogues- while Malleret is manager of Monthly Barometer, [...]

Dressing in times of Covid
"Fashion is not something that exists only in clothes. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening". This is what Coco Chanel said (the 50th anniversary of her death is just around the corner), adding that for fashion to really be fashion it has to get out of the ateliers and into the streets, otherwise it is not fashion. But what happens now that the Covid-19 emergency has changed the world's [...]

Bodies torn to pieces: lacerations produced by male thinking
The November-December 2020 issue of the journal Pediatria (vol. 27, n.6) published a bill by Amigay, an association of LGBTI or Friendly doctors and health professionals, which concerns intersex children (very rare cases of sexual "uncertainty" at birth, i.e. children with physical abnormalities) and "gender variant" children, whose behaviour does not conform to gender stereotypes (i.e. dysphoric children, affected by an identity disorder), making them a single category. Point 4 of the bill proposes [...]

Chronicle of a vaccination
A first day at school, in fact the first ever. The same emotions and anxieties, a negative dream in the night. I dreamt that in the morning I was going for my vaccination without a mask and I was getting nervous on the way because I didn't know if they would let me into the hospital and therefore allow me to be vaccinated. I tried to cover my face with a scarf, but it kept slipping and not responding to its mission. When I woke up in the morning I devoted myself to [...].

Comfort women for soldiers: Ciociare women also await justice
"Lying on the gutted pillows, still young, her skirt lifted up to her face, an ashen face framed by beautiful black hair. The blacks, big and thick, methodically worked that forcefully opened woman, now silent and inert, who had long since stopped moaning under the violent thrusts. There was no respite between one man and another. There were more than a hundred of them, with their trousers down and the rod in their hands, waiting for their turn. An officer took [...]

Feminism, sorority, friendship: the narrative of TV series about women
The year 2020 was the year par excellence in which the comparison and continuous reflection on television series became, from a happy art of conversation, a sure ground for communication and exchange. It was not difficult, thanks to the surplus time during the surreal spring and Christmas quarantine, to form a personal overview of what, series after series, emerges as a returning feminine value: friendship between women connoted with the immense power of the unrepeatable. Following the sociological cataclysm triggered by the [...]

How to pass off gender identity while pretending to talk about something else
As we have said many times, the real core of Zan's bill against homotransphobia is gender identity. The rest of the bill's contents count for much less. The legitimate request to protect the rights and dignity of homosexuals and transsexuals actually conveys the strong objective, namely gender identity in the direction of self-id, which is the free decision to choose one's gender regardless of birth sex and with a simple unilateral administrative act, at the registry office or at the notary. The [...]

Brains coming back (and wanting to stay): here's the task force we need
Reading Etty Hillesum (if you haven't already done so, do so) teaches us something decisive for life: even in the most tragic circumstances - for her it was absolute evil in the Westerbork detention camp, the last stop before Auschwitz - there is always something good somewhere. "I believe that you can get something positive out of life in all circumstances," she wrote. It is then a question of advertising it, of giving a hand to this good, of [...]
