Radical feminism has long since stopped using the term 'gender'. to name sexual difference. In fact, he no longer uses it at all: "women and men' or even 'the two sexes' are words that fit very well and have the advantage that they cannot be misunderstood. Language is the human environment, the world is built with words, which is why they must be chosen carefully.

Since the 1990s the word gender has been completely redefined. Mary Daly prophesied: women will no longer be spoken of, they will disappear in the fog of gender. More precisely, as we have seen, an attempt is being made to replace women with the free choice of gender identity, mothers with people giving birth, breastfeeding with the chest and the rest we know.

All this is not reflected in the real experience where women remain women and men men, with what follows from this naturalness. It is about resisting the liberal-hallucinatory drift. The girls are struggling a bit, but we are helping them to equip themselves and understand.

The long wave of 'gender' laps the language of politics and institutions and there too one has to help. Fortunately, we are still far from the peremptory nature of the executive order by Joe Bidenwhich completely replaces women with gender identity: the Zan law against homobi-transphobia tries to put gender identity at the centre of everything, but at the moment it is stuck in the quagmire between the House and the Senate, there is still time to work on it.

The new Prime Minister Mario Draghi does not seem to be oriented by the gender identity politics but even he does not renounce the 'modern' comfort of the term 'genre'. In his speech to the Senate, he said: 'Italy today has one of the worst wage gaps between genres in Europe, as well as a chronic shortage of women in senior management positions... A real gender equality does not mean a pharisaical respect of pink quotas required by law: it requires that they be guaranteed a level playing field between genres. We intend to work in this direction...' etc.

The way Draghi uses this term, of course, has nothing to do with mainstream redefinition, with "menstruators", "people with cervixes" and all the linguistic nefariousness of the trans-neopatriarchal lexicon. But men and women would also be fine because the pay gap and economic discrimination are experiences reserved for women, particularly those who have given birth with their bodies or are planning to do so in scandalous contravention of the rules of conduct required of the perfect neutrum oeconomicum (Ivan Illich). Not to mention the gender-based violenceeuphemizing and contributes to concealing the horror of male violence against women.

This is why it is to be hoped that the term gender will also disappear completely from the institutional political lexicon, e we should work towards this modernisation.

"Genere"? No grazie. Donne e uomini. Modernizzare il linguaggio della politica

The language of Equal Opportunities Minister Elena Bonetti should also be modernised. His use of the formula 'women's issue' has led us back to the 1950s. The women's movement has spent the many decades since - and even those before - demonstrating that if there is an issue it is only maleIt is theinability of men to stand upright by assuming a posture other than dominance. Strange that an Equal Opportunities Minister knows nothing about it.

Los Angeles: queer clubs on families
Fathers and mothers peacefully demonstrating against the Pride event held at their children's school - kindergarten and primary schools - were physically assaulted with fists and baseball bats by Lgbtq+ and Antifa activists. In California you can no longer decide anything about your children's education
The pictures you see come from Los Angeles, where last Friday a group of parents protested against an LGBTQ Pride event organised at school for kindergarten and primary schools children. A group of left-wing extremists arrived to disrupt the event and attacked the parents with baseball bats and fists, starting a violent brawl that ended only after the police intervened. On the eve of the 'PRIDE assembly' organised at the Saticoy [...]

Spain: woke sex also among the reasons for the end of Podemos
Ley Trans. Only Yes is Yes' law that reduced penalties for sex offenders. And now also a Manifesto for Sex Education for All* that jeopardises the safety of girls and boys. The spirit is always the same: a queer sexuality promoted by outgoing minister Irene Montero. Which, however, voters and electors apparently do not like. An analysis by lecturer Juana Gallego, feminist affected by the cancel culture
In yesterday's local elections in Spain, the left lost disastrously - as in Italy, for that matter. In particular, there was the stinging defeat of Podemos, which in many regions almost went extinct. In the analyses of the Spanish vote, perhaps not enough emphasis is given to two manifesto-laws of Podemos, and in particular of the transfeminist minister Irene Montero: the 'Only Yes is Yes' law, which reduced penalties for sexual crimes, and the Ley Trans, which [...]

Transgender: the victory of Puer Aeternus
An evolution of the unisex who struggled against gender stereotypes, the 'gender' phenomenon among adolescents expresses the attempt to escape the biological debt-obligation and the need to feel disengaged from stepmotherly nature. But the transgender person is by no means his or her own creator: if anything, he or she is subservient to a totipotent 'spirit' that enslaves the mind and psyche. And the gay movement that advocates puerile simulation fails to see that it is precisely homosexual identity that comes off worst
Transgender ideology goes beyond the transsexual claim of the construction of sex by subtraction or addition of something from a matrix, because it challenges the very existence of the male and the female, and especially the latter, making the female gender a product of educational norms, DIY craftsmanship, beauty shop, chemical laboratory, surgical table. Both appeal to the 'truth' of the omnipotent creation of the sexes, destitute of actual reality. Young women in particular are unfortunately fertile ground [...].

Jama: when men give birth
In an incredible, recently published study, the American Medical Association's journal, one of the most important in the field, tries to give scientific backing to the idea that childbirth is not just a female experience. Because if it were exclusive, it would also be exclusionary. An operation on language in collision with reality
As we know, there are words that can no longer be used, especially in international scientific documents and studies. At the top of the list of tabooed words are all the terms that have to do with female difference understood as the exclusive possibility of giving birth to human beings, and thus: 'woman' -if biologically understood and not open to define persons not born women-, 'mother' and 'maternal', 'breast', with reference to breast-feeding, and so on. The operation on language aims to qualify [...].

Legislation against violence against women should talk about sex and not 'gender identity': open letter to the European Parliament
Violence against women will not be combated if the texts of laws and treaties do not clearly refer to sex and not 'gender'. We join feminist and gender critical groups in an appeal to MEPs who will vote on the Commission's anti-violence proposal: write clearly in the text that women and girls are the female sex and leave no room for gender ideology
We, too, signed the letter to the European Commission on combating violence against women and domestic abuse drafted by WORIADS, a coalition of gender-critical citizens whose aim is to inform and raise awareness of the dangers of gender identity in the European institutions. The letter demands that European regulations on violence against women clearly recognise the category of biological sex. Below is the full text that will be sent to the members of the European Parliament who will vote on the [...].

The Bundestag is preparing to vote on a proposal modelled on the horrible Spanish law that allows free choice of gender even for minors with a simple self-declaration at the registry office (in addition to the possibility of changing one's mind several times). Also in the front line here is a left-wing woman counterpart of Irene Montero: the Green Minister for Women's Affairs Lisa Paus. But the opinion of the Federal Constitutional Court, which expresses many doubts about the deletion of the category 'sex', will be needed.
What is a woman? The answer that Justice Minister Buschmann (FDP, Liberal Democratic Party) and Women's Affairs Minister Lisa Paus (Greens, pictured) give to this question is: a woman is anyone who claims to be a woman. This is the core of the 'bill on self-determination in gender registration' that both ministries have now presented. With a simple declaration at the registry office, everyone will in future be able to change their sex: from male to [...]
