We feminists take note that we have succeeded in bringing out that the expression 'gender identity' is not admissible, This is also demonstrated by the request of the Legislation Committee to the House Committee on Justice (which was ignored). We now expect the discussion in the Senate to go in the direction we have indicated: so replace the concept of 'gender identity' with a clearer and more unambiguous 'transsexuality'.
NO TO 'GENDER IDENTITY'.
All over the world, 'gender identity' is branded as the a weapon against women. Gender identity is the place where the reality of bodies - especially female bodies - is made to disappear. 
It is the premise of self-determination without constraints in the choice of gender, it is being a woman available to all. 
It is the place where women born women have to call themselves 'menstruating people' or 'people with cervixes' because naming oneself as a woman is trans-exclusive. 
It is the reason why those who say that a woman is a female human adult are violently silenced, as has happened to many feminists: from Germaine Greer to Sylvane Agacinski, Julie Bindel, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and now J.K. Rowling, the author of Harry Potter, who was persecuted for calling herself a woman and refusing to accept the definition of a 'menstruating person'.
It is the place where political quotas for women are occupied by men who identify as women; of the funds earmarked for the protection of women, of affirmative action, of laws, of jobs for women enjoyed by men who identify as women. 
NO TO THE INCLUSION OF THE FIGHT AGAINST MISOGYNY 
A large part of Italian feminism also understands thecornering the fight against misogyny in the context of homotransphobia as a bogus 'concession' to women to dilute and contain their objections.
Women are the majority of humanity, not one of the minorities in the Lgbtq+ world.This is the transfeminist minority perspective, not the feminist one.
Thinking of women as a shade of the Lgbtq+ rainbow is not acceptable and produces a dangerous symbolic disorder. The fight against misogyny needs a completely different path.
For these reasons, we will continue to demand that this bill, which is dangerous for women, be amended in the parliamentary debate as we have requested.
Otherwise we will not support this law in any way.

How to convince progressives to give up gender
Terrified of transactivists and worried about sounding 'right-wing', left-wingers support the transition of minors even in the absence of studies showing that 'affirmative therapy' works and promotes the well-being of gender non-conforming girls and boys. "But everyone has a right to evidence-based medicine," argue some liberals determined to "break the spell". And they start DIAG -Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender- to convince democrats in the US and around the world that continuing on this path is wrong and dangerous. For children and for the left. An article by Bernard Lane
A new movement of US Democrats wants to find out how to break the spell of gender ideology and bring the party back to the liberal values of science and reason. Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender (DIAG) launched a project yesterday on X Space (Twitter) to commission research on how to more effectively reach out to left-wing voters who believe that science is now in favour of 'gender-affirming' medicalisation of gender non-conforming youth. "The only way to end this [...]

New York Times: Strong doubts about hormones for children with gender dysphoria
The world's leading woke newspaper has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, starting with the indecent treatment of JK Rowling. Today the paper changes course and in a very long article criticises the 'affirmative therapy' (puberty blockers, hormones and surgery) for trans minors, giving a voice to some hitherto censored and ostracised detransitioners. Because by now even many Democratic voters have strong doubts. And there is a risk of losing many readers: "get woke, go broke".
For years, the New York Times has been the world's leading woke newspaper and has always unhesitatingly supported transactivist demands, jubilating critical voices. The treatment of JK Rowling is exemplary. In 2022 a very violent subscription campaign invited people to imagine Harry Potter without its creator: the ultimate in cancel culture (see here) A misogynistic and aggressive gesture - the initiative turned out to be a boomerang and many female subscribers threatened to cancel -. A few months ago The Daily published [...].

Men IntintA and other wonders
The health of 'Marco', a trans FtM who is five months pregnant with testosterone, and that of her baby are the least of the problems. What matters to the liberal press talking about an 'anthropological revolution' is whether 'Marco' is to be called mother or father. But only a woman can give birth even if at the registry office her name is male. In this nothing has changed since the dawn of time. In the meantime, the trans front is losing ground: in one year, the number of members of WPATH, the largest transgender health organisation, has fallen by 60 per cent.
La Repubblica online headlines with a triple somersault about the 'young man who got pregnant': pregnant is not dared even at the transphilic GEDI group. The story is that of 'Marco', a girl undergoing testosterone therapy to look more like a man: beard, graver voice -not to 'become male' because sex cannot be changed and every single cell will remain damned XX-. 'Marco' had retained his uterus and ovaries and following a hetero sexual relationship (a [...]

New Hampshire: No more 'sex change' surgery on minors
The US state has passed a bill banning surgeons from performing operations on under-18 year olds such as the removal of ovaries and breasts for females and penises and testicles for males. The bill states that these operations violate the patient's 'informed consent' and points out that studies have not shown a decrease in the suicide risk of minors after the operations. On the contrary: the danger increases
New Hampshire is preparing to ban under-18s from undergoing sex-change operations. Last Thursday, the New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a bill to this effect, also with the help of some Democratic members. House Bill 619 prohibits doctors from performing 'any genital gender reassignment surgery', i.e. the removal of the uterus, ovaries and breasts in the case of women; testicles and penis for men, to anyone in the [...]

Puberty should perhaps be stopped at ALL: Transhuman drift of the World Health Organisation
In a veritable Christmas blitz, the WHO announces that it wants to draw up new gender-affirming guidelines and sets up a panel made up of three-quarters transactivists in favour of medicalising children. Preferably all of them, even those who do not suffer from dysphoria. Because choosing what sex you are must become a universal right. An international petition calls for a halt to the initiative
A few days before Christmas, the World Health Organisation (WHO) announced that it will develop new guidelines on the 'health of trans and gender diverse people', with a focus on access to hormones and surgery (what it calls 'gender-inclusive care.) ') and legal recognition of gender self-identification (self id). The WHO also announced that it has formed a group to develop the guidelines. This expert group includes many World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) apparatchiks, including [...]

Germany also considers a stop to hormones for girls with 'gender dysphoria'
As one of the most permissive laws on the transition of minors is about to be passed, a Bundestag document puts the brakes on and urges caution. Because there is insufficient scientific evidence that affirmative drug therapy increases the well-being of adolescents and that its effects are reversible. A serious and in-depth debate is needed, which has so far been prevented by transaggressive activism and the pressure of the LGBT+ lobby on politics and the media.
After years of resistance and battle by radical feminism around the world - as well as by self-organised parents resisting transpropaganda, such as the association GenerAzione D - the issue of minors undergoing transition with puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and surgery has finally come to the attention of the Italian Parliament. For some time now, the issue has been the subject of a bitter critical debate that has spread from Sweden and the UK to the entire Great North, as far as Australia, New Zealand and the United States [...].
