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.

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 [...].

Also in Wyoming stop the transition of minors
It is the 24th US state to ban drug and surgical treatments on the bodies of gender non-conforming girls and boys. Doctors and practitioners who continue to prescribe affirmative therapy will lose their licences. Decisive in the passage of the law was the testimony - and legal action - of detransitioner Chloe Cole. A regulation banning trans-indoctrination in schools was also approved.
From next 1 July, hormone treatments and gender transition surgery of minors will be banned in Wyoming. With the passage of the law, Senate File 99, Wyoming will join 23 other US states, from Alabama to West Virginia, that have banned or severely restricted gender-affirming medicine on minors. Under the law, doctors, pharmacists and other health care providers who provide gender-affirming care could have their licences suspended or revoked. Opposed by Governor Mark Gordon, [...]

The UK has decided: no more puberty blockers for children with dysphoria. It is the ultimate turning point (in memory of Yarden Silveira, 1998-2021, killed by 'sex change')
Not only the stop at the Tavistock Clinic: no British centre for 'gender non-conforming' girls and boys will be able to prescribe puberty blockers any more. The approach will have to be solely psychological: a resounding turning point that will have knock-on effects all over the world, including Italy. One of the biggest scandals in the history of medicine is finally coming to an end: will someone pay for the thousands of irreversibly damaged minors? Recalling here one among them who lost his life because of the unscrupulousness of doctors and surgeons
The British National Health Service (NHS) announces that PUBERTY BLOCKERS WILL NO LONGER BE ADMINISTRATED TO MINORS WITH GENDER Dysphoria: this is huge and heart-warming news after years and years of fighting on the front line. So not only is the dedicated service of the Tavistock Clinic in London closing, but no centre for the treatment of minors with dysphoria will use puberty blockers any more. The decision, described as 'historic', will have knock-on effects worldwide, [...].

WPATH scandal: 'therapies' for children with dysphoria are improvised and prescribed without real consent
The World Professional Transgender Health is considered the leading global scientific and medical authority on 'gender medicine': over the past decades its standards of care have shaped the guidelines, policies and practices of governments, medical associations, public health systems and private clinics worldwide, including the WHO. But leaked documents reveal the neglect of children -including children with severe mental disorders- subjected to improvised treatments, without taking into account the long-term consequences and without being sure they were clear about what they were doing
The news manages to shock even those who have long fought against affirmative therapy - puberty blockers, hormones and surgery - for gender non-conforming minors, such as psychoanalyst David Bell who exposed the scandal at the Tavistock Clinic in London: 'Even for me the contents of these files are shocking and disturbing,' he said. "The files suggest that some WPATH members are aware that gender-affirming treatments sometimes cause very serious harm and [...]

Bodies that don't count: Judith Butler returns to the fray
In a crowded lecture at the London School of Economics, the Californian philosopher and pioneer of gender theory reiterated the cornerstones of her thinking: the materiality of sex does not exist, women do not have the exclusive right to be women and must open up to other subjects starting with Queers and pro-Palestinians, transfeminism is anti-capitalist and anti-fa for a common fight against "fascist passions". And it attacks gender-critical feminism "allied with the Right".
At one point, it seemed that Judith Butler had changed her ways. The Californian philosopher, one of the most influential of the last thirty years, a theorist of gender performativity, who had arrived along a radical constructivist path to the negation of the material consistency of gendered bodies to the point of problematising and/or dismantling the subject 'woman' itself, had acknowledged: "My definition gave rise to two contrasting interpretations: for one, everyone chooses their own gender; for the second, we are all women. had recognised: 'my definition gave rise to two conflicting interpretations: for the first, everyone chooses their own gender; for the second, we are all completely determined by gender norms [...].
