Debate on #ddlZan organised by PD Lazio. Together with the first signatory Alessandro Zan, Monica Cirinnà, the head of the PD Women's Conference Cecilia D'Elia e only one critical voice, that of Valeria Fedeli.

The juice: Zan in unprecedented dialogue mode -which we hope to finally take advantage of- and against violent language, OK; Cecilia D'Elia, convincedly pro-Zan, informs that Pd feminism is modernly 'intersectional'. (D'Elia has probably not yet registered the rising wave, far more up to date worldwide, of the gender critical radical feminism, give her time); Faithful complains that there has been little or no debate in the PD and attacks the undue inclusion of misogyny, inviting acceptance and broadening of the discussion and warning that the Senate 'is not the House' (read: the numbers are not so certain).

But thehe critics' prize goes to Monica Cirinnà, who complains that the position of critical female colleagues (Valente and Concia) is exploited by the right, be careful when speaking. And he concedes: OK, let's discuss it, but the text that came out of the Chamber of Deputies cannot be touched. The Zan ddl is the same and will not change..

Now: aside from the fact that bicameralism is not an opinion, and that the bill was passed in the House in semi-clandestinity (it was theautumn of intensive care units that were filling up againpeople had other things on their minds and the maistream media went along with the silence), apparently even the people are starting to make noise. The testimonials OK, the little hands with the hashtag #ddl Zan too, but there's something about this bill that doesn't add up, we'd like to understand, we'd like to know...you can smell burning.

These are the usual problems of democracy, ties and strings. But Cirinnà's attitude is literally masterly, genre ".I am me" etc., she decided so, you can talk freely but then you do what I say. Ladies, if you have any reservations about Zan you'd better shut up. It would be interesting to know where such a arroganceit would be nice if you could explain to us where this seigniorial posture is based, but every attempt at confrontation has failed, with her as with Zan.

Cirinnà should consider that concern about the contents of the bill is mounting exponentially, whichhen people realise that the core of the law is an undefined perception - gender identity - begins to suspect and raise antennae, and you want Fedez. What if 94% of Britons said NO to gender identity -and the British government took note, also ending those LGBT courses in schools. there is little reason to believe that the Italians see it differently.

And then maybe it's true, this certainty of numbers in the Senate is not there, in which case it would be a slip for the PD, and more caution would be advisable.

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

"Gender and sexual difference. Glimpses and words in transition": cycle of meetings at the Circolo della Rosa in Verona. Part 1, Ballarin and Zamboni
The Circolo della Rosa of Verona has organised a cycle of meetings on "gender issues", also starting from the conflicts that have arisen during the discussion of the Zan bill. Title of the cycle: "Gender and sexual difference. Looks and words in transition". "As Circolo della Rosa", it is explained, "we felt the need for a confrontation that makes it possible to abandon the logic of taking sides and invites listening, sharing, willingness to open up to the reasons of the other. For this, we have [...]

Feminists against the Campania Region which intends to finance projects against discrimination on the basis of 'gender identity'.
After leaving the legislator's door with the fall of the Zan bill, "gender identity" is trying to re-enter through many windows. After the blitz in the law on infrastructures, it is now also being attempted in Campania. But gender-critical feminism is responding. And asks for an interlocution
With the decree of the Directorate-General for Social and Socio-Health Policies No 349 of 12/11/2021, published in Burc 108 of 15/11/2021, the Campania Region intends to finance projects to combat violence exclusively in favour of 'victims of violence determined by sexual orientation and gender identity'. We have nothing against the support of fragile or discriminated against groups. On the contrary, we expect the same intention towards women and children, specifying that violence against women cannot be included in a repertoire [...].

Out the door, gender identity is already back in the window
Gender identity is back in the Senate, included in a PD-IV amendment to the Infrastructure bill. Rejected in the Zan bill, the concept reappears in other laws, bills and regulations. A real encirclement that preludes to new imminent attempts to introduce self-certification or self-id. *Ultim'now: the Infrastructures bill would already be law, approved just this morning
The Zan bill has stumbled mainly - but not only - on gender identity, the first step towards free self-certification of gender or self-identity. But once out the door, gender identity is trying to get back in through the window. Or rather, through the many windows of laws, local laws, regulations and codes that will use the concept anyway. An 'encirclement' that could allow a new attempt to pass the formula at the level of national legislation. After all, the battle for gender self-certification is in [...]
