Only happiness
The uterus for rent universal offence is a quasi-law, approved by a large majority in the Chamber. With rare exceptions, the Left voted against (the absence of Schlein and Conte in the Chamber was clamorous). Final approval in the Senate is expected by the end of the year. Finally the result, after so many years of bare-knuckle fighting. Hoping that Italy can become a model for the legislation of other countries in the defence of fundamental human rights
We could give you a summary of the many and very long previous episodes. We could list the threats, the insults, the deplatforming, the doors slammed in our faces, all the times we were mocked, ridiculed and pilloried, the international blacklists that marked us as absolute enemies, as homophobic, retrograde, residual, out of history, reactionary, bigoted, witches, Terf. We could tell you how the huge business of assisted reproduction has opposed us. We could tell you about how the left, women and men, opposed us [...]

UK: Labour backtracks on gender self-determination
Even the Labour Party has realised that the fight for trans rights may cost it a large slice of the female electorate. And it changes course on self-determination by assuring that it will defend the right to reserved spaces for women, the first among progressive parties to change course. And the Italian left? It will get there last, as usual. But it will get there
While the Italian progressives continue to hold firm on gender self-determination or self-id - Elly Schlein's programmatic point in the primaries and always at the top of the thoughts of the PD's rights manager Alessandro Zan: they will be the last to change their minds but they will change it - in view of the upcoming UK general election Labour is putting on the brakes decisively: the issue is of great relevance in the current election campaign. From the opposition Labour has always held the line of support for so-called LGBTQ rights [...]

USA, UK, France: Laws to prevent minors from accessing online porn
They are called Age Verification Laws and serve to bar girls' and boys' entry to porn sites to preserve the free development of their sexuality deeply disturbed by those misogynistic and violent models. The last to approve was Virginia after Louisiana, Arkansas, Utah, Mississippi. And a dozen other American states are gearing up. It is also being discussed in Europe, starting with France, which has a regulation in the home straight. So in the UK where the law would be in force from 2024. It is time to talk about it in Italy too
Terrible is the story of those almost-children who, during a New Year's Eve party organised with spirits, drugs and condoms in a villa in the Florentine area, abused two of their contemporaries - both 12 years old - filming the abuse as is now customary and sharing the videos via chat. Accidentally discovered by the mother of one of them, who did not hesitate to denounce the affair to the Postal Police, the affair would see nine of the seventeen boys who attended the party under investigation. The consumption [...]

Vagina? No. It's called an 'extra hole'
Woke language claims to be inclusive at the exclusive expense of women, who must literally disappear: pregnancy, breastfeeding, female sex organs can no longer be named so as not to offend the trans and non-binary ultra-minorities. It is the latest ridiculous move of the dying patriarchy that has built itself up from the very beginning on the marginalisation and erasure of the feminine. It still tries, but it will not succeed
Transactivists are ridiculous: in order not to 'offend' the ultra-exiguous minority of women who declare themselves male while retaining the female genital organ, the vagina can no longer be called that. Bonus hole, extra hole: this is the term. Even front hole no longer suffices: its unserviceability must be better emphasised. A relentless work to erase women from language and the symbolic, a move in extremis by the patriarchy that has built itself from the beginning on the erasure and abjection of the feminine, [...].

Germany, stop trans law
The Bundestag was preparing to approve a law -very similar to the Spanish Ley Trans- that would have introduced total gender self-determination or self-id by a simple administrative act. But the Council of Ministers blocked the proposal at the last minute: there was a risk that convicted criminals would exploit the rule to escape punishment. Perhaps it also had something to do with the fact that Ley Trans did not go down well at all with the centre-left majority in Spain, which risks defeat in the general elections on 23 July.
After Spain, which a few months ago approved the horrifying Ley Trans, an initiative that contributed to the Podemos debacle in the recent local elections and which is jeopardising the centre-left government - next 23 July there will be a vote for politics - it would have been Germany's turn to approve a law on total gender self-determination (self-id). But things turned out differently, as you can read here. The law to approve self-id in Germany was blocked at the last minute [...].

Warning daughters is politics
Against sexual violence and rape, education of young men is still called for. While teaching young women how to protect themselves and sounding the alarm about early sexualisation and the risks of substance abuse is seen as discriminatory and re-victimising. Every mother feels she has to do this but is blamed for it
If feminism is 'starting from oneself', it is from me that I want to start, from what I felt after the horrible murder of young Michelle in Primavalle (in the photo) seeing two women holding up signs (professionally made in some professional print shop, not in marker pen on bristol cardboard) where it was peremptorily reiterated that it is not girls who need to be protected, but boys who need to be educated. Mantra that is repeated to us in every case of rape, the appeal to [...]

On the risks of the ROPA method
The technique used by an increasing number of lesbian couples consists of using the oocyte of one to make an embryo that will then be inserted into the womb of the other who will carry the pregnancy. This practice is physically and psychologically dangerous both for the two women and for the child that will be born. This is why
In our recent communiqué Per il vero bene dei bambini (For the true good of the children) we expressed our concern about the increasing use by female couples of the ROPA technique (Recepción de ovocitos de la pareja), i.e. the transfer of the fertilised oocyte of one into the womb of the other who will carry out the gestation. For this stance we have received acclaim, some insults and many requests for information and sources. What does the ROPA method consist of and what are its risks? For the [...]

Spain: Ley Trans at the centre of the election campaign
The popular Isabel Dìaz Ayuso, newly elected president of the Madrid region, promises that an eventual centre-right government will change the highly contested Ley Trans approved by the Sanchez government, which introduced free gender identity. In defence of the Constitution and above all the rights of women and children as well as freedom of opinion. Decisive theme in view of the political elections next 23 July
In Spain, biopolitical issues have also become major topics and are playing a decisive role in the election campaign. In the run-up to the general elections on 23 July, there is already talk of changing the laws on gender identity, less than six months after the approval of the Ley Trans wanted by ex-minister Irene Montero of Podemos, a political formation that almost died out in the last local elections. The first to speak about it was the newly elected president of the Madrid region, Isabel Díaz Ayuso del [...]

For the true good of children
Demanding the full transcription of birth certificates for those born from surrogacy and other assisted fertilisation practices, rejecting the path of adoption by 'intended' parent (stepchild) indicated by the Court of Cassation and validated in these hours by the European Court of Human Rights, harms minors in the first instance. And deprives them of those rights they claim to want to defend: our communiqué
We of the Network for the Inviolability of the Female Body, RadFem Italia and FINAARGIT ((International Feminist Network Against All Artificial Reproduction, Gender Ideology and Transhumanism) with the support of all the associations worldwide that oppose so-called gestation for others, from Ciams to Stop Surrogacy Now, and eminent international feminist personalities such as Sylviane Agacinski, Gena Corea, Phyllis Chesler and Jennifer Lahl - We reiterate our condemnation of the practice and renew our hope that the 'universal offence' of surrogacy, currently in [...]

Uterus for rent a universal crime: the left against
The first day of the debate on the bill signed by Maria Carolina Varchi closes as expected: oppositions against it -with different positions between the PD calling for the status quo to be maintained and +Europa wanting a regulated GPA. Main arguments against: the rights of rainbow families and the possible unconstitutionality of the rule. Here a summary of the speeches and an'interview with constitutionalist Silvia Niccolai
Yesterday saw the first day of debate in the House on the bill on the uterus for rent crime signed by Maria Carolina Varchi and others. The entire debate can be reviewed here. The debate on the general lines closed with the announcement of the presentation of preliminary questions of constitutionality by Federico Gianassi of the PD and others, and by Magi-Della Vedova of +Europa. In the House we saw more or less what was expected: the majority supporting the [...]

Telling about sexual harassment
A very participative research conducted by the Milano-Bicocca University and recounted in a book edited by Chiara Volpato investigates the issue in depth, revealing that harassers are in most cases known men who are part of the family, friendship and work circle. That harassment renews and reinforces the device of domination. And that -as in the case of sexual violence- the mechanism of self-blame on the part of the victims is a constant in their experiences.
The book "Telling sexual harassment. An empirical investigation' edited by Chiara Volpato (Rosenberg & Sellier, 2023) stems from the need expressed by many female students at the University of Milan-Bicocca to thoroughly investigate the phenomenon of sexual harassment. Chiara Volpato, lecturer in Social Psychology at the aforementioned university, enthusiastically accepted the proposal. The research team prepared a questionnaire that was distributed within the University and the first data that emerged was the very high and unexpected number of women [...].

The British prime minister: 'We will guarantee women their reserved spaces'
Vigorous change of wind in the UK after years of prevailing Lgbtq+ misogyny: against the invasion of toilets, women's locker rooms and safe houses by men who self-identify as women, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak promises a reform of the Equality Act. As demanded by a petition signed by over 100,000 people, it will have to be based on biological sex and not on 'gender identity'. Also announced are new guidelines on'sex education and alias careers at school: decisive issues in view of the upcoming elections
British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has declared that he will change the Equality Act 2010 to protect single-sex spaces reserved for women, stating that biological sex is 'fundamental and important'. The move follows concerns about the lack of clarity in current legislation on the issue, which could allow so-called MtoF trans people to access spaces reserved for women even though they are biologically male. "I have been very clear that when it comes to issues [...]
