A letter to be signed immediately! (to be handed in on 8 March).
In the United States theEquality Act, already passed in the House of Representatives, is about to be approved in the Senate. As Feminist Post has told you on several occasions, theEquality ActThe Biden administration's intention is to replace the concept of 'sex' with that of 'gender identity', erasing women, girls and children and making being a woman a 'choice' available to men.
Declaration on Women's Sex-Based Rightswhich has a network of 15,000 members worldwide - and of which RadFem Italia is the Italian reference point - has sent a letter of appeal to Charles Schumer, the U.S. Senate Majority Leader, pointing out that the 'European Union is not a member of the Senate.Equality Act As it stands, if approved, it would constitute a dangerous benchmark for legislation around the world.
We would like to remind you that the Zan law against homobi-transphobia, which has already been approved by the Chamber of Deputies and is waiting to be discussed in the Senate, also introduces the concept of "gender identity" in Italy. It is therefore a worldwide lobby that in coordinated action works for the erasure of girls, girls and women to replace female sex with "gender identity" in national and international legislation.
That's why this letter to the US Senate needs to be signed by as many people as possible, and signed NOW! WHRC intends to deliver it on 8 March, together with an alternative bill: theEquality for All Act.
You can subscribe to it by clicking here . This is a very important action, you too can participate and share as much as possible!

In sisterhood, 
Jo Brew and Kara Dansky

The Honorable Charles Schumer
Majority Leader
United States Senate

Dear Senator Schumer,
We represent women all around the world and we are writing to share our concerns with the U.S. Equality Act as it is currently drafted. The Declaration on Women's Sex-Based Rights has been signed by over 15,000 individuals all over the world, approximately 2000 of whom live in the U.S. Its intent is to protect women and girls globally by ensuring that sex is maintained as a discrete category in numerous areas in the law. We encourage you to read its provisions.

Our understanding is that the current version of the U.S. Equality Act, which passed in the House of Representatives earlier this year, would redefine the word sex to include "gender identity" throughout U.S. Civil Rights Law. "Gender identity," which the Equality Act defines in a circular fashion with reference to "gender-related identity, appearance, mannerisms, or other gender-related characteristics,"is, in practice, the mechanism by which individuals may claim the identity of the opposite sex. It has no basis in material reality.

Although the enactment of the Equality Act would only affect U.S. women directly, we are terrified of the impact that such enactment is likely to have globally. Our governments look to your government for leadership, expertise, and guidance. Already, we are seeing the word sex being redefined to include "gender identity" in laws throughout the U.K., the European Union, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. These laws have had devastating impacts on the lives of women and girls, including the rapes of vulnerable women in prison, the inclusion of men in women's spaces such as locker rooms and changing rooms, and the inclusion of men in women's sports. This situation will only get worse if this law passes in the U.S., and similar laws are likely to extend to other geographic areas as well.

We understand that the U.S. chapter of the Women's Human Rights Campaign (WHRC) has shared with you information about the alternative they have proposed, the Equality for All Act. This bill is in alignment with the Declaration on Women's Sex-Based Rights, and we strongly urge you to consider introducing it in the U.S. Senate.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration. Women and girls all over the world are depending on your leadership.

Honourable Senator Schumer,

we represent women all over the world and we are writing to share our concerns about the U.S. Equality Act as it is currently drafted. The Declaration on women's rights based on gender has been signed by more than 15,000 people worldwide, about 2,000 of whom live in the United States. Its intent is protecting women and girls globally by ensuring that gender is maintained as a distinct category in many areas of legislationPlease read what it has to say.

From what we understand the current version of the US Equality Act passed in the House of Representatives earlier this year, would redefine the word sex to include 'gender identity' in all US civil rights legislation. "Gender Identity", which theEquality Act tautologically defines referring to ".identity, appearance, behaviour or other gender-related characteristics"is in practice the mechanism by which individuals can claim the identity of the opposite sex, which is something that has no basis in material reality.

Although the enactment of theEquality Act would directly affect only US women, the impact it could have on a global level is terrifying. Our governments look to the US government as a model of leadership, competence and guidance. We are already witnessing the redefinition of the word sex to include "gender identity" in the laws of the United Kingdom, the European Union, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. These laws have had a devastating impact on the lives of women and girlsincluding rape of vulnerable women in prison, inclusion of men in women's spaces such as changing rooms and locker rooms, and inclusion of men in women's sports. This situation will worsen if the law is passed in the United States, and it is likely that similar laws will extend to other geographical areas.

We know that the US section of Women's Human Rights Campaign (WHRC) has already submitted an alternative, the Equality for All Act. This bill is in line with the Declaration of Women's Rights based on Genderand we strongly urge you to consider introducing it in the United States Senate. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

Women and girls all over the world depend on its leadership.

Holland: if you block the development of girls and boys you push them to become trans
The protocol - pausing puberty to allow minors to 'choose' their sex - they invented. But even the Dutch now admit that in 9 out of 10 cases blockers no longer give time to 'decide' but are the start of the transition. A self-fulfilling prophecy. And that the effects of these drugs are by no means reversible
Amsterdam University Clinic UMC, a pioneer in the use of puberty blockers, has admitted that children taking these drugs may find themselves locked into increased medicalisation. The admission comes following the publication earlier this month of a new retrospective study examining 20 years of hormonal interventions known as the 'Dutch protocol', conducted on 1,766 children and adolescents between 1972 and 2018 at the famed Amsterdam clinic and published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine. But [...]

GenerAzioneD, Italian association of parents of minors who define themselves as 'trans', is founded
A guidance and information site to support and accompany mothers and fathers going through this complex experience: testimonies, interviews, and links to contribute to an in-depth debate that today does not find space in the mainstream media
The cultural, apolitical, non-denominational and non-profit association GenerAzioneD has been established. The association's primary aim is to inform about the problems of gender dysphoria/incongruence in children, adolescents and young adults. Through the dissemination of testimonies, news, national and international articles in translation and the promotion of opportunities for discussion, GenerAzioneD aims to foster the transparency necessary to ensure the best possible care for those affected. GenerAzioneD was in fact born from the meeting of some parents who shared the experience of having children [...]

Transgender' children: it's social contagion. Even the largest trans association admits it
Tik Tok, Youtube and others: the president of WPATH, the world association for trans health, forced to admit that influencers play a large part in the epidemic of transitions among minors, a phenomenon denied by Western progressives who brand every alarm as transphobia. But they do not stop pushing for medicalisation and early surgery
The Honourable Alessandro Zan, first signatory of the infamous bill on gender identity, which ended up in the knighthouse, had denied the dizzying increase in cases of transition of girls and boys, calling the news a 'dangerous statement'. In 2021 there were already numerous statistics indicating the extent of the problem, but apparently Zan was not aware of it - which is unacceptable - or pretended not to know, or more likely ideologically believed that the mere fact of posing the question should be considered proof [...].

Sex and gender: JK Rowling's essay
In her text, the writer explains in detail the reasons why she felt the need to address the trans issue, defying the violence of activists. A manifesto-writer for gender critical feminism translated into Italian by Alessandra Asteriti
Attacking JK Rowling can now also be a business. The latest initiative is that of a young Canadian imbecile art book creator who has decided to de-rowling Harry Potter by publishing a special edition of the saga on the cover of which the author's name disappears: $170 per copy for a despicable abuse of power. Let him keep all the copies in stock. Back to the serious stuff: in June 2020 JK Rowling published an essay on her website detailing her position [...].

The debate on puberty blockers also opens in Italy - finally!
Breaking the silence is the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, which is calling for an open scientific debate on these treatments, which it defines as 'experimental', not supported by adequate studies and at great ethical risk because they predetermine the fate of girls and boys
Much later than in the Great North of Europe, Great Britain, Australia, and some US states - which have abruptly put the brakes on the use of puberty blockers as a 'therapy' for girls and boys with gender non-conforming behaviour - Italy too is finally breaking its silence with a letter addressed to the government by the Italian Psychoanalytic Society, which calls for caution and the opening of a public scientific discussion. Below we reproduce interviews conducted by Marina Terragni for Il Foglio and [...].

Italian psychoanalysts: stop puberty blockers
The Italian Psychoanalytic Society criticises puberty blockers for children: dangerous and experimental treatment. And joins gender critical feminists and parents in calling for scientific data and a public debate on the best treatment for children suffering from gender dysphoria
For years we gender critical feminists have been fighting against the scandal of the medicalisation of children in the name of gender identity. And for years we have been branded as fascists, reactionaries, bigots. Today at last an accredited Italian scientific society, the Italian Psychoanalytic Society (SPI), is taking a stand, joining us in raising a cry of alarm: the use of puberty blockers is an experimental treatment that has no solid scientific basis, and causes serious side effects. Above all, in most cases dysphoria [...]
