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

Iranian Beauty
In Iran, female beauty becomes the lever of a real revolution: nothing like the mortification-commodification of bodies that is propagated as freedom in the West. The struggle to be able to be a woman reveals the'hypocrisy of the queer
It is now almost two months since the Iranian girls' revolt against the veil began, an irrepressible wave that every day produces new images, new content, a breath of fresh air compared to certain narratives about women in the Islamic world, but also a mirror that reveals how much of an artefact there is behind so many politically correct watchwords of intersectional feminism or transfeminism. First, the veil is not a free choice, nor is that feminist empowerment about which we have been bombarded by [...]

England: new guidelines for 'trans' minors
While Spain is about to approve the horrifying Ley Trans, which allows the transition of girls from the age of 12 even if their parents oppose it, the English health service closes once and for all with the so-called pharmacological 'affirmative approach' (puberty blockers) practised for years and points to psychological treatment as the priority route. And in Italy? For the Italian Society of Paediatrics, these drugs do not cause any problems and their effects are completely 'reversible', a fact denied by several studies
The English health service (NHS) has published a new draft of guidelines for the treatment of children with gender dysphoria (full text here), pending the results of the Cass Review, an independent enquiry commissioned by the British health minister and led by paediatrician Hilary Cass (see here), which will lead to a complete restructuring of services dedicated to gender non-conforming children. After the closure of the Tavistock clinic -which we told you about here-, NHS puts a definitive end to the so-called [...]

'Destroy women's rights': JK Rowling against the Scottish premier and her trans law
As in Spain, feminism in Scotland fights against a law wanted by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon introducing gender self-determination without any medical diagnosis and lowering the age for access to 16. And this time too, the Harry Potter author stands by women, girls and children
JK Rowling takes a photo of herself wearing a t-shirt that reads 'Nicola Sturgeon, destroyer of women's rights' to support women protesting in front of the Scottish Parliament against the controversial gender recognition reform bill wanted by Scotland's First Minister. Activists from For Women Scotland gathered in front of the Scottish Parliament this morning for a demonstration against the bill promoted by Sturgeon, which would make gender self-determination easier - we have [...]

The Iranians are fighting for us too
Women in Iran are oppressed, violated and killed precisely because of their bodies as women. And their revolt could free everyone and everyone. Is'the woke West of'gender identity and 'freedom of the veil' ready to understand and support this revolution that blows for us too? Woman, life, freedom
In the uncertain and ever-changing geopolitical order of our time, in the midst of a global political agenda that from right to left forgets women, betraying, albeit in different ways, female exclusivity and the richness of sexual difference, the struggle of Iranian women has something epic, something moving. The killing of Mahsa Amini shows how the issue of the 'veil as freedom' is the quintessence of intellectual dishonesty, of logical fallacy, of an age-old lie. To 22-year-old Mahsa, the desire to 'feel the [...]

Girls removing their breasts
Transactivist propaganda invites girls uncomfortable with their female form to compress their breasts with special bands (binders), the first step towards the final mastectomy. The same misogynistic violence as the traditional 'breast ironing' practised in Africa. In the UK, the publicly funded charity Mermaids is under indictment for sending binders to teenage girls against parental advice.
Breast ironing is a horrible practice still in use in some regions of Africa, particularly in Cameroon. It involves the destruction of the breasts of adolescent girls by red-hot instruments -old irons, spatulas, stones or shells- and is generally practised by the adult women of the family. The purpose is to make the girls less attractive in order to save them from rape and early pregnancies that could tarnish the honour of the family group. The practice causes serious damage to the health of teenage girls, [...].

Unlike their Italian counterparts from the PD and the left who stand for free gender identity, the Spanish progressives break with the PSOE's transactivist policies in defence of women and children. In their manifesto the excellent arguments against what, if passed, could be the worst transactivist law in the world
Breaking with its party, the PSOE, and sending a signal to the women of the European left, who are generally aligned in defence of transactivist diktatism, the Federación de Mujeres Progresistas launches a courageous manifesto against the Trans Law wanted by the governing majority in Spain (PSOE and Podemos) and being approved by an emergency procedure, without an effective parliamentary debate or a wide public discussion. The initiative also comes in response to the clamorous break between historical Spanish feminism -united in the Contraborrado cartel- [...].
