Beastly Sunday. After learning that ILGA, the world's largest LGBT network (1,614 associations in 158 countries, including Italy).) in a statement she abusively called 'feminist'. requires lowering the age of sexual consent for minors (see here), We had to hear Mr Zan say that his bill against homobitransphobia etc. is also 'against misandry'., The term has no counterpart in reality and is part of the armoury of organised violent misogynists. This is how it went.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Following a Instagram live between Iacopo Melio and Mr Zan. -that continues to dialogue with everyone except us, undeserving of his attention, misogynistic thing in itself- a bit boring, like all discussions in which we applaud each other, I jumped up in my chair when I heard the MP say that this law can also serve against 'misandry'..

See here, from 0.45.

Now, misandry' is a bit like Pas, Parental Alienation Syndrome, an invention of separated fathers with the support of the ultra-rights, a 'syndrome' whose existence has always been scientifically disproven. That is misandry' is part of the violent verbal paraphernalia against women routinely used by the Men's Right Activists and Incel (Celibia Involuntary), borderline neo-Nazis and white supremacists, some of whom have carried out massacres, see here).

Hearing 'misandry' coming out of the mouth of a left-wing legislator leaves one stunned.. Especially if the legislator claims that his bill is 'also' against misogyny.

Use the word "Misandry' is in itself an act of war against women. It is very worrying that Mr Zan intended to express himself in this way a kind of 'draw and draw' between misogyny (which is tragically true) and 'misandry'." (which is a misogynistic invention) to affirm that its law can serve in a bidirectional way. As if the hatred of women had its natural counterpart in the hatred of men, and we do not live in a patriarchal system that makes the submission of women to men its cornerstone.

My friend Elvira Reale observes that therefore the whole Istanbul Convention should be abolished for 'misandry': in fact, Erdogan has abolished it.

Zan also added that, paradoxically, the bill also protects against heterophobic hate crimes (!)

In short, it could be called the "against homobi-transphobia, heterophobia, misogyny, misandry, ableism and -maybe, why not- disabilism". All sorts of things.

In fact the text authorises this extension/confusion talking about sex (therefore female and male, we do not have any others), gender (therefore female or male), sexual orientation (therefore homosexual, bisexual but also heterosexual and any other) as well as thegender identity, an object that in its intangibility and indefiniteness is causing palpable problems throughout the western world.

The fact that Zan so nonchalantly used the abhorrent and misogynistic 'misandry' is a sign of unawareness -to be kind- not at all reassuring when expressed by those who wish to legislate on a subject as sensitive as human sexuality. Moreover, it can only arise from a considerable degree of unawareness. such a confusing and dangerous text, eagerly awaited by many gallowsmen who - as we often read in social chats - can't wait to denounce anyone who tries to express a thought not exactly in line with the new mainstream.

There is also the risk that 'misandry' could be read as a bad calami slipthe idea that women too are basically mean to men - therefore 'misandric' - including gay men.especially when they don't always agree with you, such as on thegender identity and surrogacy.

In short, we catch them from the right and left like a punching-ball.

One thing is becoming increasingly clear: that text is all over the place.

The legitimate demand to protect homosexual and transgender people from all forms of discrimination and violence must find another legislative expression.

The Zan bill returns to the Senate. Just as it was. And we are ready to fight again. Just like that
Irreducibles, Zan and the PD are back in charge. With the exact same text that has already fallen in the Senate. The real goal is gender identity and education in schools. And while most of the West - from Great Britain to Sweden, Finland, Australia and Florida - is backing down on self-id after having ascertained the damage it does to women, girls and children, Italy intends to import this out-of-date product.
War or no war, Covid or no Covid, next week in the Senate - presumably Wednesday 27th - the PD will re-submit the Zan bill. As it stands. No objections have been considered, let alone discussed. Gender identity - the thing they care most about, the real lintel of the law - remains at the centre, with training in schools and all the rest. The western world is backing away after seeing the damage caused by gender self-identification and self-id, a [...]

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 [...]

"Gender and sexual difference. Glimpses and words in transition": cycle of meetings at the Circolo della Rosa in Verona. Part 1, Ballarin and Zamboni
The Circolo della Rosa of Verona has organised a cycle of meetings on "gender issues", also starting from the conflicts that have arisen during the discussion of the Zan bill. Title of the cycle: "Gender and sexual difference. Looks and words in transition". "As Circolo della Rosa", it is explained, "we felt the need for a confrontation that makes it possible to abandon the logic of taking sides and invites listening, sharing, willingness to open up to the reasons of the other. For this, we have [...]

Feminists against the Campania Region which intends to finance projects against discrimination on the basis of 'gender identity'.
After leaving the legislator's door with the fall of the Zan bill, "gender identity" is trying to re-enter through many windows. After the blitz in the law on infrastructures, it is now also being attempted in Campania. But gender-critical feminism is responding. And asks for an interlocution
With the decree of the Directorate-General for Social and Socio-Health Policies No 349 of 12/11/2021, published in Burc 108 of 15/11/2021, the Campania Region intends to finance projects to combat violence exclusively in favour of 'victims of violence determined by sexual orientation and gender identity'. We have nothing against the support of fragile or discriminated against groups. On the contrary, we expect the same intention towards women and children, specifying that violence against women cannot be included in a repertoire [...].

Out the door, gender identity is already back in the window
Gender identity is back in the Senate, included in a PD-IV amendment to the Infrastructure bill. Rejected in the Zan bill, the concept reappears in other laws, bills and regulations. A real encirclement that preludes to new imminent attempts to introduce self-certification or self-id. *Ultim'now: the Infrastructures bill would already be law, approved just this morning
The Zan bill has stumbled mainly - but not only - on gender identity, the first step towards free self-certification of gender or self-identity. But once out the door, gender identity is trying to get back in through the window. Or rather, through the many windows of laws, local laws, regulations and codes that will use the concept anyway. An 'encirclement' that could allow a new attempt to pass the formula at the level of national legislation. After all, the battle for gender self-certification is in [...]

Zan draft law: calling things by their name
El verdadero nombre del proyecto de ley de Zan, bloqueado hace unos días en el Senado, debería haber sido "Proyecto de ley sobre la autocertificación de género" y no contra la homotransfobia. Ese era el verdadero objetivo, la autoidentificación, y por eso la ley se ha estancado. Sacrificar la legítima protección de las personas homosexuales y transexuales a la arrogancia del transactivismo queer.
Un breve comentario, tras archivar el proyecto de ley Zan sobre la homobi-transfobia, destinado principalmente a las hermanas y amigas no italianas que nos piden explicaciones; y a las italianas que aún no tienen claro lo que pasó. Hace más o menos un año, el proyecto de ley de Zan contra la homobiotransfobia fue aprobado en la Cámara de Diputados en medio del silencio y la desatención general. En ese momento, los medios de comunicación ocultaron por completo el debate, [...]
