Milan introduces gender self-certification
All it will take is a 'solemn' declaration to be able to choose what sex you are -female, male or neither- without any medical acts, expert opinions or judgments, and to adopt the 'alias' identity in various municipal services, including electoral rolls. In fact self-id, a huge change introduced by a simple administrative act and without any public debate. But it is all to be assessed whether the law allows it
So in Milan, self-id was introduced: it means being able to decide whether you are male, female - or neither - in total freedom, without expert opinions, sentences, witnesses - as the national law provides for: nothing of the sort, a simple bureaucratic step and it's done. In Great Britain, after years of public debate, self-id was shelved: the overwhelming majority of the population was against it. In Milan, without any debate, as if citizenship did not exist, as if laws did not exist, and [...]

Right, left, human, transhuman
The issue of 'rights' -from gender identity to the uterus for rent- is not complementary or on the sidelines, but outlines the horizon towards which we move. But the post-human perspective pursued by progressives is not unique and inescapable. The alternative exists: a female-rooted civilisation
By re-submitting the Zan bill in the Senate with very little chance of it passing -when instead other solutions, such as the Scalfarotto bill, would have ensured a law against homobitransfobia- PD secretary Letta has repeatedly stressed that the issue of rights is decisive for his party. The theme of rights, however, is always placed as complementary, on the sidelines of issues considered far more relevant: the war, certainly, economic issues, but also simply the electoral law. In truth, most of the game [...].

Kathleen Stock: 5 tips to keep transactivist troublemakers quiet
The lecturer forced to resign for saying that biological sex exists explains how to deal with harassing transactivism: just like a mother dealing with a wayward child or rebellious teenager. An ironic guide to saving your life
Philosopher Kathleen Stock became known outside academic circles after she was forced to resign from her professorship at the University of Sussex with threats and defamation by transactivists for expressing critical views on gender identity (see here). While similar cases are happening all over the world, including Italy and Europe (see here and here), in Anglo-Saxon countries lecturers are organising themselves to fight against the censorship of gender-critical feminism. In the article we present Kathleen [...]

Abortion in the USA: something doesn't add up
A "little hand" brings out in advance a Supreme Court ruling that would make the termination of pregnancy illegal. To whose advantage and why? With what consequences for the midterm elections, in which Biden was expected to lose? And what has gender-critical feminism, which some liberal observers want to blame, got to do with it?
A real political bombshell, thrown just a few months before the midterm elections, is the draft ruling of the US Supreme Court, which has fortunately leaked, that would make abortion illegal in the United States, overturning the historic Roe v. Wade ruling that made it legal in 1973. In the meantime, it is a draft; the final ruling is expected in June. It is also a question of who's 'little hand' it came from, and why. It could have been any of the conservative justices (Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito who would [...]

The bomb of hormones for children is exploding everywhere. But not in Italy
No longer tolerable is the Italian silence - what do parliamentarians do? - on gender nonconforming children treated with hormones. How long will we have to wait? In the meantime, the bubble is bursting everywhere, from Northern Europe to Australia to the United States, where people are starting to talk about puberty blockers as an unprecedented medical scandal.
The medicalisation of girls and boys who do not conform to gender stereotypes will be the next big medical scandal. While in Italy everything is still shrouded in an unbearable silence - how long will the health authorities be able to turn a blind eye - elsewhere the bubble is bursting. We have reported several times on the stop to the medical treatment of minors in countries that have been pioneers in introducing gender identity, such as Sweden, Finland and Australia. Today we update you on recent developments in the UK [...]

This is Georgia
Surrogacy, gender identity, motherhood: on many issues, the positions of the leader who now looks to the premiership coincide with those of feminism, snubbed by the left. What to do in the face of this challenge? Can the women's movement dialogue with the right?
Giorgia Meloni could become the first woman prime minister in our country. She no longer hides her ambition and if she knows how to do the right things by next spring - or rather, if she does not do the wrong things - and if she manages to escape the volleys of friendly fire, no less intense and insidious than enemy fire, she will be able to achieve her goal, having only herself to thank for the mistakes of her opponents: no one has co-opted her - see here - she has no master [...].

Sargentini case: Saviano's deafening silence
Feminist journalist Monica Ricci Sargentini has been threatened with a sanction - three days' suspension - by Corriere della Sera for having shared the spirit of a protest initiative against an article published in Annex Seven in which the Neapolitan writer spoke of regularising 'sex work' as ordinary work. It would be important to know his point of view as a defender of freedom of opinion on the matter. But at the moment there is no sign
We know Roberto Saviano as a defender of freedom of opinion and of the press. This is how he has always presented himself. Not only because of the risks he has taken personally, but also because he has on several occasions defended freedom of thought by taking public positions, explaining that a journalist must 'be able to do his job without being attacked on a personal level, without a climate of threat' and complaining that 'any critical voice knows he can expect retaliation'. In recent days Monica Ricci Sargentini, a journalist [...]

Trans-medicine: the new lobotomy
According to Lisa Michele, the treatment of healthy minors with hormones is 'one of the biggest medical scandals in history' and can be compared to the lobotomy of 50,000 Americans in the middle of the last century: in both cases, no scientific evidence and serious harm to patients. In the meantime, a self-help website for parents of children with gender dysphoria has been launched in Italy.
Speaking of what she calls 'one of the biggest medical scandals in American history' (and not only American, unfortunately: the treatments she is talking about are also being carried out in Italy), the American feminist Lisa Michele makes a very strong comparison between hormone therapies for people with dysphoria (especially minors) and the surgical practice of lobotomy, a devastating treatment that was very much in vogue in the USA in the 1940s and 1960s. What you will read is a transcript of the video of [...]

The Zan bill returns to the Senate. Just as it was. And we are ready to fight again. Just like that
Irreducibles, Zan and the PD are back in charge. With the exact same text that has already fallen in the Senate. The real goal is gender identity and education in schools. And while most of the West - from Great Britain to Sweden, Finland, Australia and Florida - is backing down on self-id after having ascertained the damage it does to women, girls and children, Italy intends to import this out-of-date product.
War or no war, Covid or no Covid, next week in the Senate - presumably Wednesday 27th - the PD will re-submit the Zan bill. As it stands. No objections have been considered, let alone discussed. Gender identity - the thing they care most about, the real lintel of the law - remains at the centre, with training in schools and all the rest. The western world is backing away after seeing the damage caused by gender self-identification and self-id, a [...]

University of Barcelona: feminist professor boycotted by queer students
Another Stock case, this time in the Catalan university. Feminist writer and lecturer Juana Gallego was targeted because of her gender criticism. Cases are multiplying in all western academies, but the authorities are watching. The initiative in support of the teacher launched by Spanish feminism
Juana Gallego, writer and teacher at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona -Master of Gender and Communication- is under attack by queer students who, before the beginning of the course, announced to the coordinator of the master that they would boycott her lessons because of the ideas she expresses in the media or in her blog. A story that recalls that of many other professors - the most famous case being that of Kathleen Stock - who have been removed from universities for their gender-critical positions. Of the question of [...]

New Jersey. Pregnancies in women's prison after arrival of trans 'inmates'
Two inmates pregnant in New Jersey women's prison after the arrival of transgender prisoners. Complaints of harassment by men who 'identify' as women and protests by guards were in vain. Gender self-determination weighs heavy on US prison system
Two inmates became pregnant after having sex with a transgender prisoner at New Jersey's only women's prison, the Edna Mahan Correctional Institution. This was stated at a press conference by the head of external relations of the state's Department of Corrections. It is unclear whether the inmates have had relations with the same trans-identified inmate and whether they intend to carry the pregnancy forward. Officials at the prison, which has long been in the eye of the storm over allegations of abuse, specified that the [...]

Towards the abolition of surrogacy: an anthology and a debate
CIAMS publishes a multi-voice book against the uterus for rent and discusses it in an open webinar. In the meantime, in Italy, which is preparing to "welcome" the Fiera dell'Utero in Affitto (in Milan on 21-22 May), two bills are already being discussed that would extend the punishability of the practice even when carried out abroad. And a popular initiative bill is on the way
While in Italy we are preparing to "welcome" the Fair of the surrogate motherhood, scheduled for 21-22 May in a place still unknown - we will know only at the last minute - and in addition to the two bills already under discussion in the Commission of Justice of the Chamber of Deputies, proposals that call for the punishment of "surrogate motherhood even if carried out abroad, is preparing a draft law of popular initiative with a collection of signatures for a definitive stop to the practice - we will soon give details - next 28 April [...]
