Parentectomyfirst a jolt when reading the word in an article by Italian psychologistswhich are subject to a common code of ethics even though they are known to be proponents of the parental alienation, aka PAS. Then, coldly, the assessment that there could not be a more appropriate terminology for the intervention that PAS advocates (G.B. Camerini, T. Magro, U. Sabatello, L. Volpini of the universities of Padua and Rome) propose in cases of parental alienation: the 'parental alienation'.removal of the parent as if it were a tumour, a diseased organ in the context of a child's life. (see text here).

Parentectomy, surgery to remove something pathological. This is what the alleged parental alienation syndrome leads to, that a syndrome in which one parent against the other armed inoculates the child from outside, even only at an unconscious level and therefore indemonstrably, with a rejection of one of them. But let us be even more precise: parental alienation is a legal tactic to save paedophiles and rapists from prosecution by their victims. It is most common in the context of civil separation proceedings, when in cases of domestic violence that statistically predominantly affect women (30% of the world's female population, WHO data from 2013 and 2017) children reject their fathers because they have seen their mothers mistreated or because they have been directly involved in physical, psychological and even sexual abuse.

Here then happens in the courts what the Istanbul Convention call secondary victimisation against women: being accused of crimes that were never committed, being considered guilty, for example, of rejecting the child's father and not being a friendly parent towards the other ensuring easy access or contact with the child (friendly parenting). Well, what would be self-evident, i.e. the fact that the child rejects the violent father because he fears him for himself or for his mother, becomes something completely different thanks to this group of consultants who are advocates or disciples of the advocates of violence. PAS (a theory which, we repeat, has no scientific merit and has been rejected by the scientific community).) that overturn the relationship between cause and effect.

The fact that the father is violent does not interest these psychologists and the judges who support them, at most it concerns the criminal trial and its final outcome in the Supreme Court. In civil proceedings, on the other hand, it is necessary to affirm a principle (which does not exist either, Constitutional Charter in hand): that of bigenitoriality. And if it is not possible to enforce the principle of bigenitorial responsibility, then it is not possible. the child's refusal to stay with one parent after separation (the father, in general) is the fault of the parent who was placed at the time of separation (the mother, almost always) manipulating the child's conscience, indoctrinating him, transferring to him his feelings of revenge and resentment towards his father, alienating him from a relationship, without representing the violent matrix of this relationship and the just desire of the child to keep away from the offending parent.

Once this responsibility has been placed on the woman, the psychologists mentioned above indicate the appropriate intervention: Immediately remove the child from the alienating parent and place him or her with the alienated, i.e. rejected, parent, by any method, including the deployment of police forces. All the heartbreak of a child taken by force (the image of the child in Cittadella being taken by the feet and hands to be separated from his mother is still vivid in our eyes) and torn away from his usual context of life, from his mother, grandparents, school which has been attended up to that moment, can be well encapsulated in the pain of a 'surgical' intervention that its inventors have rightly called 'parentectomy'.

Boldrini is wrong
In the name of bigenitoriality and ideological paritarianism, the PD parliamentarian proposes an amendment to Article 37 of the Constitution, which speaks of the relationship between mother and child as deserving 'special protection'. It would be a great 'constitutional' gift to the lobby of separated fathers supported in particular by the League. And it would increase the risks for mothers and children
Laura Boldrini announces her intention to immediately deposit in Parliament a series of proposals that she calls a 'rights package'. These include the idea of an amendment to Article 37 of the Constitution which states that 'A working woman has the same rights and, for equal work, the same pay as a worker. Working conditions must allow the fulfilment of her essential family function and ensure special adequate protection for the mother and child'. Boldrini's intent is [...]

Laura Massaro won for all
The most famous of the mothers under attack on the basis of the fictitious 'theory' of parental alienation has won her battle in the Court of Cassation, for herself and for all women in her situation: from now on, children can no longer be taken by force and it will no longer be so easy to talk about alienating mothers. It is also a symbolic victory, putting mothers back at the centre against all equalitarian rhetoric.
With Order No. 9691/2022, the Supreme Court of Cassation ruled in favour of Laura Massaro and banned parental alienation from the courts, defining the forced removal of minors, who must always be heard in proceedings concerning them, as contrary to the rule of law. A clamorous sentence - thanks to Laura's courage and to the amazing work of the lawyers Teresa Manente and Ilaria Bogliano - despite the bad auspices and the harshness of the outcome of the appeal, not to mention the inadmissible attempts to discredit Laura by "trying" her just 4 years ago.

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, sports publications 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 both in Paralympic competitions for the visually impaired and in the masters championships for female athletes over 35 (here is the entry of the athletes beaten by her male body), hoped until the very end to participate in the female category at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo. The qualification [...]

Fathers who kill
Davide Paitone killed his son Daniele and seriously injured his mother. A violent man, already detained under house arrest. He was also incoherent and a drinker. Yet in the name of 'parental equality' he was allowed to keep the child with him for New Year's Eve, a decision that ended in tragedy. But the right of the father, even if notoriously aggressive, is what counts most
Davide Paitone, a 40-year-old worker from Morazzone (Varese), is a violent man. He has already been accused of ill-treatment in the family, and is also a drunkard and incoherent. He had also stabbed a colleague after an argument and was therefore under house arrest. In spite of his violent temperament, he was allowed to keep his 7-year-old son Daniele with him for New Year's Eve. This concession was equivalent to a death sentence for the child, whose throat the father slit. After hiding the body [...]

Children taken away as if they were things
There are no laws authorising the violent removal of children. Social services, the only ones entitled to intervene in such cases, must refuse to carry out court orders. Doctors and psychologists cannot support these traumatic actions. Judges must respect national rules and international conventions. The government and parliament must stop this unworthy merry-go-round against children and their mothers.
Laws often do not exist, or if they do, they are interpreted in an anti-juridical way (see law 54/06 with its articles 155 and 155bis that should be read in a coordinated manner) or are simply not applied. Among the laws that are not applied is the Istanbul Convention, law 77/2013, which with its two articles 26 and 31 requires that in cases of domestic violence the mother and the child are both put in protection and that the foster care [...]

Misandry out of the Zan bill: a boon for mothers and children, a gift for abusive fathers
Antonella Penati, mother of Federico killed by his father during a "protected" meeting, speaks. The court and also the European Court of Human Rights do not consider the social workers responsible for failing to protect the child. And now, after the Pas, the danger of "misandry" against women and children is announced.
Forcibly snatching terrified girls and boys from their homes, taking them away from their mothers. Pisa, 15 June: forcible removal of an 8-year-old boy from his mother by order of the ordinary court with the intervention of 11 public officials who forced him to a sudden change of residence, to hand him over to his father with whom he has never lived - in Sicily - in the name of the so-called right to bigenitoriality.The psychologists of Protocollo Napoli stigmatize the incident, the Order of Psychologists of Lombardy [...].
