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 [...]

New York Times proposal: get rid of JK Rowling
A violent subscription campaign in the US newspaper invites people to imagine Harry Potter without its creator: the ultimate in cancel culture. A misogynistic and aggressive gesture that could inspire real ones. But the initiative turns out to be a boomerang and many female subscribers threaten to cancel.
According to the New York Times, JK Rowling has to go. A violent campaign on electronic billboards invites readers to "imagine Harry Potter without its creator": cancel culture at its maximum power, the non plus ultra of wokeness. Not being able to do away with the creature that has taken on a life of its own (the books of the Harry Potter saga are among the best-sellers in the world) one "kills" the creator. Words are stones, and from the symbolic to the reality the step [...]

Trans-athlete Petrillo wins it all. And - of course - thinks about politics
Fabrizio-Valentina Petrillo continues to rout opponents. Her last podium finish was at the 200m indoor masters championships in Ancona. She says that sport divided by gender is violence. And she proclaims her motto-manifesto: "Everyone must have the opportunity to determine for themselves who they are". Starting with gender
Between the Olympics and the DDL Zan last year, sports publications devoted a lot of space to 'inclusive sport' and to Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo, presented as the 'first transgender athlete to wear the Italian national team jersey in an international competition'. Petrillo, who competes both in Paralympic competitions for the visually impaired and in the masters championships for female athletes over 35 (here is the entry of the athletes beaten by her male body), hoped until the very end to participate in the female category at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo. The qualification [...]

Lesbians against the transition of girls and boys
Lesbians United was set up in the USA to raise the alarm about the serious risks of the early medicalisation of children with 'gender dysphoria'. Which, they say, "is a scam". In the hope that the American gay and lesbian movement, which is highly critical of the trans-industry, will finally break its silence and listen.
Lesbians United, a US lesbian organisation, launched a public information campaign entitled "Understanding the transition of minors" through social media and the organisation's website. Lesbians United's social media posts are accompanied by colourful graphics, with targeted slogans such as 'Gender dysphoria is a scam' and 'Join the movement against medical malpractice'. Their targets include pharmaceutical companies, gender clinics and the American Psychiatric Association. "Lesbians are being pushed to 'transition,'" reads [...]

Fuck #NinoSarrer
The girls watch L'Amica Geniale on TV, from Elena Ferrante's quadrilogy. And they become passionate, they love, they suffer, they fight together with Lila and Lenù. They are there with them. Against the ferocity of those despicable men who - as if they were people and not characters - are targeted on Twitter.
At a certain point, on Sunday 6 February - the first episode of the third season of the series L'Amica Geniale, based on Elena Ferrante's quadrilogy was broadcast: volume three, Storia di chi fugge e di chi resta - #NinoSarratore, one of the male characters in the novel, appeared among the Twitter trend topics, insulted in various ways. There is something for everyone - despicable males abound in the quadrilogy - but no one among Ferrante's characters is able to capture the hatred of girls as much as Nino. "the way Elena [...]

UK: Stop online pornography for girls and boys
The British government will force users of pornographic sites to prove their age by means of a credit card or other proof of age in order to gain access. The aim is to prevent children and adolescents from viewing increasingly violent and sexually deviant content. Billie Eilish's courageous denunciation sets the standard
The UK government plans to force users of online pornography sites to prove their age by credit card or other proof of age in order to gain access, to prevent children and teenagers from viewing such content. Sites could be blocked in the UK or fined millions of pounds if they do not comply with the new rules. Opponents have objected that the innovation could be used to track users' pornographic habits, but the government has assured [...]

Adele is also a Terf: you can't call yourself a woman
The BRIT Awards, the most prestigious music award in the UK, abolished the male and female categories in the name of gender neutrality. But Adele, this year's winner, says she is proud to be a woman. For this she is accused of transphobia and overwhelmed by hatred.
As was the case last year with the Italian edition of the X Factor, the BRIT Awards 2022 - the most prestigious music award in the UK - abolished the male and female categories in homage to gender fluidity. So no more "Best Female Solo Artist" and "Best Male Solo Artist", but a gender neutral "Best Artist", whose winner was Adele. Collecting the award, she commented: "I understand why the name of this award has changed, but I love being a woman, and being a woman artist. [...]
