Trans-athlete Petrillo wins it all. And - of course - thinks about politics

Fabrizio-Valentina Petrillo continues to rout opponents. Her last podium finish was at the 200m indoor masters championships in Ancona. She says that sport divided by gender is violence. And she proclaims her motto-manifesto: "Everyone must have the opportunity to determine for themselves who they are". Starting with gender

Between the Olympics and the DDL Zan, last year the sports press devoted a lot of space to "inclusive sport" and to Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo, presented as "the first transgender athlete to wear the Italian national team jersey in an international competition'.

Petrillo, who competes in both Paralympic competitions for the visually impaired and the masters championships for female athletes over 35 (here the voice of athletes beaten by her male body)had hoped until the very end to participate in the women's category at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo. The qualification did not comeIt is unclear whether it was because he was a man on the documents or because of inadequate results - 1973 class, almost 50 years old, he was competing against female athletes in their twenties.

What has "Valentina" done since the summer? Obviously continued to win.

In September 2021, he achieved first place in three races at the Masters Championships in Rieti: 100m200m e 400m.

He also decided to enter politics, He stood in the municipal elections in Bologna on the list of the socialist party PSI-VOLT as a " Fabrizio Petrillo aka Valentina "taking 12 votes out of the 1335 obtained by the list (see here).

Last week he again won the 200m indoor masters championships held in Ancona (here).

To return to politics, these are Petrillo's intentions (December 2021, interview with Luce! here): " My motto and political manifesto is the self-determination of gender, everyone must be able to determine for themselves who they are. "(self-id).

The journalist asks: " What does it mean not to be able to self-determine one's gender? "Petrillo replies: "On the documents I am still a man against my will. To change a document I have to go to a judge. This is a law from 1982, it was pioneering at the time and today it is completely inadequate. When I go to court I will say: 'I feel raped' because the arbitrariness of the judge is very heavy.".

So Petrillo would like the self-id, to change the anagraphic sex without going to a judge and doctors to document 'a transition path', as currently provided for in Law 164/1982, which, moreover, on the basis of subsequent judgments, allows the change without intervention on the genitals.

Petrillo adds: 'You think that everyone is going to have a sex change, but that's not the case. We don't wake up in the morning with this idea, it's something you find out on a pathway". The aim is to "self-determine" as much as one likes, including entering the sporting categories -and spaces- of 'women' while keeping the male body and genitals intact (obviously trans FtM, female to male, who want to compete in the male categories is not available.). Key reasoning of the transgenderism, egocentric and masculine prioritising the feelings of the 'trans' individual without any consideration of the consequences for others. (see also the problem of MtFs in the women's prisons, here).

Petrillo also says: 'A gender division is itself gender-based violence". Once again, the trick of replace the word "sex" with "gender".already attempted in the Zan DDL and similar legislation around the world. The ultimate aim of transgenderism is not to allow a minority to change their sex on documents so that they can 'feel better'. What dominates are the interests of big business, namely the trans industry that in the name of health and other gender fluid intervenes on bodies by demolishing them and medicalising them for life (see here).

Petrillo is delighted with the new rules of the International Olympic Committee, which "elimina the concept of controlling testosterone levels, leaving room for the federations to regulate each situation (...) The IOC is moving towards an idea of the person rather than the gender (...) There are sports where weight classification is adopted. It means that one day we might move towards parameters other than gender. [gender].. That's what I think too and I'm pleasantly impressed.". 

It is clear, therefore, that 'inclusive' sport is not about rights and it is not a harmless fad: it is about an a powerful vehicle for introducing and making acceptable the abolition of sexual difference, once again erasing women's bodies and replacing them with the male 'transgender athletes'.

p.s: on the Petrillo case we tried to interview the FIDAL, the Italian Athletics Federation. In deference to the powerful dogma of no-debate (see here) once again we received no reply. After all, they would have little to say.

Meanwhile, today, 19 February, the first International Conference in Defence of Women's Sports Categories will take place in Madrid, see here

UK, you can no longer say 'woman' or 'mother': woke provisions of the General Medical Council
Decision of unprecedented violence by the British Medical Register: the word woman must be deleted at every level. It cannot even be mentioned when discussing motherhood, childbirth, breastfeeding, menopause. Even 999, the emergency number, can no longer ask what sex the person asking for help is. The woke know very well that the female body is the main obstacle to the transhuman project. And they want to erase it even in language
It keeps happening: women and mothers must also be erased from the vocabulary, at every level. They do not give up because the maternal symbolic is the most resistant obstacle to the transhuman project. We will not give up either. Forget it The General Medical Council -the public body that maintains the official register of doctors in the UK- has replaced the word 'mother' with neutral terms in its maternity guide for staff. The updated guide for employees who become pregnant omits [...]

Female wombs in male bodies
The envious dream of all time -to be able to have children without women, to erase mothers, in short, the Grail- is getting closer and closer to being realised: in five to ten years' time, even biologically male trans people will be able to receive a womb transplant and conduct a gestation. An 'inclusive' wish-right that would improve their quality of life and alleviate the symptoms of dysphoria. While the lives and health of girls and boys born from these practices are of no concern to bioethicists
Euronews reports on the rapid progress of research on the uterus transplantation front, with particular reference to the request of trans MtF people whose bodies remain biologically male, while FtM people, if they retain their female genital apparatus, can undertake a pregnancy like any other woman: the 'pregnant fathers' that the mainstream press likes to report on are none other than women who self-identify as men. In the article, which we translate here, women are referred to as cis- women, suffixed [...]

Appeal to the FDA: no more silence on puberty-blocking drugs
A petition asks the US drug agency -which has never authorised the off-label use of these substances for girls and boys with dysphoria- to counter the misinformation that propagates these treatments as effective and safe and to demand studies to prove it.Between 207 and 2021, the number of minors treated has more than doubled and the FDA can no longer pretend it is blind.
On his site Gender Clinic News Bernard Lane reports on an important petition to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration, US drug regulator) to take urgent action on the unapproved (off label) use of hormone suppressant drugs to block puberty in girls and boys who identify as transgender. Although this use has never been approved by the FDA, it is not possible for the agency to ignore the possible harm to minors who are subjected to these [...].

Denmark: no more hormones for children! Even trans people say so
After the UK, Sweden, Finland, Norway and the Netherlands also Denmark says stop to puberty blockers for gender non-conforming girls: those drugs are experimental and there is no scientific evidence that they work. But here the government initiative is supported by important LGBT associations: this is the first time it has happened. And in Italy? You cannot even know how many minors are treated
Denmark is also backtracking on puberty blockers for children confused about their sex: the Danish health system will henceforth offer psychological therapies and no longer drugs to adolescents who have not reported discomfort with their birth sex since childhood. This was announced by Health Minister Sophie Løhde during a parliamentary debate that rejected a proposal by the populist Nye Borgerlige (New Zealand) party to completely ban gender transition for minors.

Spain: inmate pregnant with trans cellmate
The man -intact male body and no hormone therapy- had asked and obtained to be moved to the women's prison in Alicante because he 'self-perceived' to be a woman (self-id). A cellmate's pregnancy was the result. And the new Ley Trans, in force since December 2022, will make such transfers easier and more frequent
In the Alicante Cumplimiento Penitentiary Centre, known as Fontcalent Prison, an inmate identifying himself as a woman impregnated a cellmate. According to the account confirmed by several prison sources, the inmate had been serving a sentence in the male module of the prison for several years, but during his stay he started to identify himself as a woman. On his papers he continues to appear as a man and has never undergone hormone treatment, let alone surgery. [...]

Male bodies in women's sports: finally something is moving
It's about time: FIDAL, the Italian Athletics Federation, complies with the directives of World Athletics to ensure fairness in women's sports competitions by dictating strict conditions for the participation of trans women athletes. Meanwhile, Martina Navratilova makes it clear that 'women's tennis is not for failed males' by rebelling against an injustice that, she says, 'is patriarchy'.
While tennis player Martina Navratilova is being heaped with contumely for stating the obvious, namely that she is fed up with seeing male bodies thriving in women's tennis (the latest case being that of US transwoman Alicia Rowley, you can see her in the centre of the opening photo) adding that 'women's tennis is not for failed males' and that 'it is patriarchy for biological men to insist on the right to compete in the women's category in sport' (La Repubblica speaks with dismay and [...]
