And Kamala? Nothing to say?

"On social media, women have expressed relief at the end of the Trump era. The Canadians also posted pictures of Kamala Harris and Jill Biden in clothes that represent progress. No true feminist would wear a black suit and red tie, after all. What America needs now are those jewel tones.

I can't understand what trauma we suffered from seeing an egomaniac tweet himself in Internet prison ... If anything, it offered us the cue for four years of dedicated progressive posts. Now what's next?

In any case, I am glad that all this division and polarisation is finally over. Both Canadians and Americans will have to come together to find something new to distract themselves with. Maybe this time it will be the mass surveillance and the end of free speech? Wait, no, I have a good one: the end of women's sport and gender-based protection?

The first thing US President Joe Biden did the day after his inauguration was to sign 15 executive orders including rejoining the Paris climate agreement and reversing a policy that blocks US funding for programmes abroad if they are linked to abortion. Not bad. He also enacted the obligation to maskerine throughout the federal territory, as well as on buses, planes and trains.

But the brave 100-day mask challenge (oh funny! It's like a game!) was not the only decision that allowed us to breathe a sigh of relief. Biden also signed a executive order to implement certain aspects of the Equality Act , il that sounds like a great thing, unless you are a woman hoping for equality under the law in 2021. Sorry, Karen. Equality is not for you. Put your mask back on.

The ordinance ensures that "federal statutes concerning sex discrimination prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity"and bypasses the tedious legislative process normally required to pass a law

But hey, we're talking about equality, boys. And who would ever vote against it! As far as I know, democracy only means that other people can decide what is good for you. Those who vote against things that are not 'good' are fascists.

Lest we be fooled into believing that an 'equality act' could be at least partly about combating sex discrimination, given that women make up half the population that has spent the last 100 years fighting for equal rights under the law, we are reminded that our status as a 'woman' is only important if you are the kind of woman who is a man.

LEquality Act of the origins, introduced in 1974 from Bella Abzug, actually sought to ban discrimination on the basis of sex (as well as sexual orientation and marital status), but as we all now know, thanks to Twitter fact-checkers, human beings have gone far beyond sex. Today we are a mass of amorphous 'them' (thes) whose rights are determined by the type of porn we prefer.

L' Equality Act of 1974 did not become law and was reintroduced in various forms over the years until today, when equality is still necessary, but not for chicks.

Today, the important thing to ensure equality is that mediocre male athletes are allowed to compete against girls and women so that they do not have to live with their male mediocrity. As such this 'Equality Act' guarantees that individuals cannot be discriminated against on the basis of their 'gender identity'. Which sounds good, because no one should be discriminated against: but in this case We use the term 'discrimination' to defend the right of men to claim to be women and to be treated as such.

You might ask yourself why men would want to be treated as 'women'. Well: to begin with, to have the guarantee that they will not be denied theaccess to abortion should they become hallucinatingly pregnant. But there are also other good reasons. One of which is that if these men found themselves accused of sexual violence they could avoid being locked up in prison with a bunch of violent guys. Right. Nobody wants that. The problem is that, as 'women', these men now have the right to be incarcerated in women's facilities, which means that female prisoners will be subjected to that male violence that nobody wants to deal with. Seems unfair, doesn't it? Too bad, Karen! This is equality!

What is really important in this act of equality, however, is create a playing field at the level of males who are not good enough athletes to compete with other male athletes. È fairer for them to compete against women who, due to their biology, are not as strong or as fast as male athletes. In fact women's bodies are different from men's bodies, but we are no longer allowed to explain howas material reality is not very polite and rudeness kills.

Men now not only can legally access women's facilities - including bathrooms, and changing rooms - but as 'women' they can also win sports competitions, competitions, scholarships and awards previously reserved for girls and women. Recognition they fully deserve, because the hardest thing about being a woman is being a man.

In October Biden has promised which would promulgate the Equality Act during his first 100 days as president. He is a good guy (that's why you voted for him, right?) And good guys keep their promises. So, he kept. None of this was a surprise, and now we can all celebrate this brave new world, relieved of the burden of free thought.

Personally I am relieved that the Americans no longer have a madman as president! Imagine if the leader of your country believed that males could become women by a simple declaration, and then enacted a law about it! LOL!".

Petrillo: my body doesn't count, I want to use women's showers. And withdraws from the Torun World Championships for reasons of 'safety'
Winning competitions is not enough: Petrillo also claims to use the women's changing rooms after the Italian Athletics Federation at the request of female athletes decided on reserved spaces. "The state recognises me as a woman, male genitals don't count. Besides,' she sneers, 'it certainly won't be the first time they see them. In the meantime, she renounces the next world championships for 'security' reasons.
A few days ago, we published a report on the competition of Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo in Ancona, with the reactions of the female athletes beaten by her male body. The female athletes made it clear that, although they respected Petrillo's personal journey, athletically they were not on a par and that they felt discriminated against. The statements made by the female athletes to the Feminist Post were taken up by other newspapers, including Il Giornale (here), and provoked comments from Petrillo, who had [...]

'We were wrong': pioneer of puberty blockers admits damage
Susan Bradley, a Canadian psychiatrist who founded a clinic for 'dysphoric' minors in the 1970s and an authority in this field today states that the switch from psychological therapy to drugs was a big mistake. Because their effects are severe and not reversible, because those treatments are 'authoritarian' and experimental. And because in 9 out of 10 cases children's dysphoria is only temporary and masks other disorders.
In an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation, Dr Susan Bradley, a Canadian psychiatrist and a pioneer in the treatment of gender dysphoria in children, spoke out against the popular model of affirming children's transgender identities and treating them with puberty-blocking drugs, a practice she had participated in in the past. Bradley had opened a paediatric clinic in 1975 for children suffering from gender dysphoria, a profound sense of unease concerning the [...]

The men's ultracorp of the transatlete Petrillo continues to win everything. Opponents react
Valentina née Fabrizio once again outclassed her opponents in Ancona on 12 March. She now has eight master's titles, whereas before the transition - when she competed with the men - she had not even won one. Now she is preparing for the world championships. Here a summary of the races and statements from the athletes unjustly deprived of victory
Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo, born in 1973, turns 50 this year and changes category in national masters athletics competitions. On 11 and 12 March in Ancona, she competed for the first time in the F50 category, i.e. with female athletes aged 50 to 54. And again, with her ultra-masculine body, she easily racked up trophies and records that used to belong to female athletes. But what is it like to see a live ultra-male body competing against female bodies? What are [...]

Mental disorders in children: it's an epidemic. In parallel with the boom in 'gender dysphoria'
An American study reveals that psychological distress in adolescents has been on a growth spike since 2012 with different symptoms between males and females. And that almost always the idea of wanting to 'change sex' is accompanied by other problems. Loneliness, social networks, pornography: how savage marketing is destroying a generation
The silence on puberty blockers prescribed to girls and boys with gender non-conforming behaviour has finally been broken in Italy too. It has been broken mainly thanks to the efforts of radical feminists, parents' groups and Italian psychoanalysts who have written to the government (see here). The debate has also arrived on TV, with two recent episodes of Quarta Repubblica with interventions by Italian and foreign experts, from feminists Marina Terragni (here, from 1'46'') and Monica Ricci [...].

After the court ruling at the registry office Petrillo is a woman. But her body remains male. The female athletes demand and obtain from their federation that it does not access their reserved spaces. At least the existence of the problem is recognised. Then come the competition fields
This is, at the very least, an acknowledgement of the problem. The athlete Petrillo obtained a name change from Fabrizio to Valentina from the court a few months ago, but her body remains male. Sharing the changing rooms therefore creates great embarrassment for the female athletes. While waiting for the issue of male bodies in women's sports to be fully and definitively resolved, a small but significant victory: separate changing rooms will be set up for Petrillo. Which makes the unbearability of the situation even more evident. It is [...]

UK: Inquiry book published on the Tavistock case, clinic that 'cured' autistic children by transitioning them
BBC journalist Hanna Barnes struggled hard to find a publisher: the censorship we all know. But she finally made it. And now her sensational essay on the scandal of the Tavistock, a clinic for the transition of minors closed by the British National Health Service: puberty blockers casually prescribed to preadolescents with autism, trauma or psychological disorders. For years some staff tried to raise the alarm, but were intimidated and silenced. This is an entirely political issue, because the health of children is at stake. Thousands throughout the West lured by hammering trans-propaganda
Hanna Barnes is a BBC journalist. After conducting a thorough investigation of the Tavistock clinic in London, a centre for the gender transition of minors, and having discovered the wickedness of that service, she decided to turn it into a book. But it was not at all easy to find a publisher willing to publish it. Not because Barnes's work was not documented and rigorous, but because no publishing house could withstand the likely accusation of transphobia that the publication of the [...]
