Time dedicated its latest cover to Elliot Page (formerly Ellen). "I am what I am"he says. Pale, emaciated, his features already hardened by hormone treatment, his chest flattened by a double mastectomy, the air not exactly happy - let's hope that the rest of his life goes better. Elliot recounts the pain of having to suffer the hyper-feminisation imposed by Hollywood. She says that already at the age of 9 she felt like a boy and that it was hard to accept the roles that were offered to her.

Elliot's suffering cannot be doubted.No one would be maimed and medicated if they did not think that this was the way to get better. Maybe If the scripts had not forced him into such rigid stereotypes, it would have been easier.. Let's hope it works and that Elliot soon settles into this new equilibrium.

The problem is not Elliot. If anything, the problem is Timewhich celebrates him as a hero, collaborating in the construction of the liberal narrative, vigorously promoted by the Biden administration, which makes being T the paradigm of human freedom (criminalising and prosecuting when not persecuting every other point of view, cf. here).

The problem is Rolling Stone, People, The Corriere della Sera and all the other media celebrating its transition. There's very little to celebrate when something like this happens to you. There's little to glitter about. Gender dysphoria is a disgrace. This is by no means an enviable human condition. Even if you don't have surgery, even if you don't undergo lifelong heavy and risky drug therapies, your life T can be very complicated. There is no reason to celebrate this disorder, however depathologised, as a fascinating existential adventure..

Those who know transsexuals know very well that If they had the choice, they would have gladly done without this ordeal.. Those who know older transsexuals who may have to stop hormone therapy because of unsustainable iatrogenic effects in old age, and then having to see their bodies painfully conform to their birth sex (in the case of MtF transwomen, for example, having to endure baldness, pseudo-vagina and urethra closing up and other effects) knows that there is little to idealise and glitter about.

The fact is that if Time, Rolling Stone, People, The Corriere della Sera and all the other media break out the champagne, representing condition T as 'fabulous', there will be thousands of young girls determined to escape 'the burning house' (see here) of becoming a woman by choosing transition (8 out of 10 cases today are FtM transitions). Children often suffering from psychiatric problems -particularly autism spectrum disorders, eating disorders, etc., see here- induced to read their suffering as 'being born in the wrong body' and to beg for puberty blockers in order not to have to deal with the problems they face. the natural transition into a woman's body.

Elliot Page, trans-eroe celebrato dai media di tutto il mondo

The fact is that if Time, Rolling Stone, People, The Corriere della Sera and all other media continue to obscure news such as the Keira Bell judgment, the growing phenomenon of girl detransitioners (see here), of all those who have gone through this and then realised that they had made or were led by a hasty diagnosis to make a wrong choice and that they had instead they would need love, support, understanding, help in accepting their homosexuality, and also a political struggle for women's freedom. (see here) and for the free signification of oneself as a woman against the so-called gender stereotypes - not of scalpels and testosterone, which these stereotypes reinforce them- well, if the media do this they bear a heavy responsibility.

Take a tour of Feminist Post e you will find all this news methodically obscured by mainstream information.

Give us a hand in spreading this awareness, to effectively support girls and young women. And to continue our totally voluntary work with our bare hands, even with a small financial contribution.

From Gaza to western delivery rooms, Judith Butler sees fascists everywhere
Fascists, of course, we gender-critical feminists too, 'allies of the right and the Vatican'. The Californian intellectual, renouncing all philosophical subtlety, compiles a political agenda that coincides with the platform of the university students in struggle. And he calls for an alliance between trans people, antifa, the pro-Pal movement, the homeless, black people, migrants and even women - understood as one of many minorities - to build 'a radical democracy inspired by the ideals of socialism'. An account of the Bologna leg of his triumphant European tour
Perhaps today one could speak of the 'Butler Agenda': its platform coincides perfectly with the platform of struggle of the-students throughout the West, with little certainty as to whether the chicken or the egg was born first. Certainly Judith Butler is to all intents and purposes the mother of Gender Theory to which these student(s) (a minority anyway) enthusiastically adhere; in turn these student(s) with their mobilisations are a source of inspiration for Butler, their platforms are also a [...]

Trans surgery increases suicide risk
A very recent study of 90 million patients shows that trans-operated people run a 'significantly higher risk of suicide, death, self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder' and require psychiatric support. Thus, the completion of the long and arduous transition with 'affirmative' surgery does not ensure the achievement of the hoped-for well-being
"Gender affirmation surgery is associated with a significantly higher risk of suicide, death, suicide/self-harm and post-traumatic stress disorder than control groups in this real-world database. Since suicide is one of the most common causes of death among adolescents and middle-aged individuals, it is clear that we must work to prevent these unfortunate outcomes. This further reinforces the need for comprehensive psychiatric care in the years following surgery for [...]

Letter to Rishi Sunak: we need a public enquiry into the influence of transgender ideology
One hundred and thirty British MPs, doctors, psychiatrists, academics and detransitioners - among them JK Rowling - have written a letter to the Prime Minister calling on him to examine the 'pervasive influence' of transgender ideology in schools and the National Health Service and to ascertain responsibility for the harm done to thousands of girls and boys
"Rishi, if you read this petition please do the right thing and urgently initiate a public enquiry. The welfare of our children depends on it." Writing this is psychotherapist James Esses, coordinator of the Biological Reality Statement and one of the signatories to an appeal to the British Prime Minister after the major scandal of the treatment of 'confused and vulnerable' children by medical professionals, made evident by Hilary Cass's report. Among the first signatories is JK [...]

Hormone-addicted children: an in vivo trial. Who will pay for it?
Hilary Cass, the British paediatrician who produced a monumental report on 'affirmative therapy' for minors does not mince words: those children 'were used as footballs'. There has never been any evidence that puberty blockers work, that they reduce suicide risk, that they increase patients' well-being: far from it. Will those who, in the absence of scientific certainty, have inflicted these treatments, who have even persecuted so many people of goodwill determined to expose the scandal in the name of truth, go unpunished? Keira Bell, the best known detransitioner, hopes for criminal consequences
Englishwoman Keira Bell, a former patient of the Tavistock Clinic in London, is certainly the most famous of the de-transitioners. After the publication of the Cass Review she tells The Times that she would like to see criminal proceedings started so that the children treated by the clinic with puberty blockers and hormones can finally get justice. Keira is now 27, judges the treatment she was subjected to -blockers, hormones, removal of breasts- "experimental at best, destructive at worst" and believes the professionals have [...]

UK. Cass report: no more affirmative therapy for children with gender-related problems
Pediatrician Hilary Cass' final report on child transitions comes out: offering affirmative therapy was a failure. There is no evidence on the effectiveness of puberty blockers, which should never be prescribed except in rare cases. Hormones of the opposite sex should not be given before the age of 18, and even between 18 and 25 caution should be exercised. A definitive watershed
The long-awaited final report of the Cass Review, an independent review chaired by paediatrician Hilary Cass on public health services for children and young people with 'gender dysphoria', came out this morning. Its final report and recommendations were presented to NHS England. Here are the highlights. The condemnation for affirmative therapy is final, and determined by the absolute lack of evidence that puberty blockers and opposite-sex hormones bring real benefits to children suffering from 'gender incongruence [...]

Hormone therapies on children: doctors' insurances start to run away
The risk of million-dollar claims by minors undergoing irreversible treatment who regret the 'affirmative therapy' is too high: this is why some insurance companies no longer feel like covering 'gender medicine' under their policies
Those who resist the market for the transition of gender non-conforming girls and boys know very well that almost always the turning point - as was the case in the UK with Keira Bell and in the US with Chloe Cole - is the lawsuit brought by a former child-or treated-or with blockers and hormones against the doctors who administered the 'therapy': the detransitioners' side is decisive. Then the game becomes money versus money: the money collected by the gender clinics versus the money they end up [...].
