Ante la proximidad de los Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo In July, the communication media began to show the images of women's competitions in which native-born athletes and men participate and always win.. Thanks to the directrices elaboradas por un grupo exclusivamente masculino del Comité Olímpico Internacional, which they establish as a único criterio la autoidentificación con la "identidad de género femenina" y la disminución del nivel de testosterona.

The images of these tall, muscular breasts, with a weapon that, in spite of the pechos, pink monos, labia lápiz and red uñas esmalte, is unmistakably masculine, jump out at you and are sparking a debate on the legitimacy of allowing masculine athletes who identify as women to compete with women.

Ante la evidente ventaja de los "ultracuerpos" masculinos en el deporte femenino, gran parte del público se ha preguntado: ¿en qué están pensando las atletas? ¿Por qué no se rebelan en masa?

De hecho, los informativos deportivos italianos han dado gran relevancia a la historia de Valentina Petrillo, "the first female transsexual athlete to qualify for Tokyo 2020" (see aquí y aquí), but las women athletes have been invisiblecon pocas excepciones.

A pesar de este bloqueo de la prensa, las atletas italianas se han rebelado and have expressed their indignation, not by abandoning the competitions, but by legal means, in the name of the deprived of a fair competition.

Italian athletics champion Mariuccia Fausta Quilleri represents 24 female athletes. who have signed a petition in which they request that transgender athletes born in the male sex be allowed to compete in exclusively female competitions. outside the competition.

Los atletas discuten en primer lugar la lack of scientific basis -as well as lack of legal validity- of the IOC guidelines, as they have demonstrated numerosos estudios, entre los cuales el más completo es quizás el de la Dra. Emma Hilton y el Dr. Tommy Lundberg publicado en "Sports Medicine (ver aquí).

Además, afirman que la admisión de cuerpos masculinos en las competiciones femeninas constituye una violation of Article 1 of the Equal Opportunities Code entre hombres y mujeres, which - writes the lawyer Quilleri - 'obliges absolute, inviolable and indispensable respect for the female physical individuality'.

La petición se envió el 3 de mayo al presidente de la Federación Italiana de Atletismo, Stefano Mei, a la ministra de Igualdad de Oportunidades, Elena Bonetti, y a la subsecretaria de Estado responsable del deporte, Valentina Vezzali. Después de más de un mes, ninguna de estas autoridades ha respondido todavía.

Entre las atletas que han signado la petición también se encuentran Cristina Sanulli and Denise Neumann, que Tasks with Petrillo at the Italian Masters Championships in Arezzo in October 2020 -véanlas in the inicial photo- and who told the periodist who interviewed them that felt that they "did not compete on equal terms". (ver aquí).

Sanulli y Neumann siguieron entrenando y compitiendo, y en los campeonatos italianos en pista cubierta de Ancona, en marzo de 2021, tuvieron la oportunidad de una revancha. In the 200-metre race on an indoor track, Cristina Sanulli, despite her smaller size and female body, overtook Petrillo in speed. y quedó primera, y Valentina segunda, a pesar de contar con todas las ventajas técnicas que proporciona un cuerpo que ha experimentado la pubertad masculina: a wider leg, a larger body, feet and lungs, greater maximum consumption of oxygen by muscle contraction (VO2máx), tighter muscles, and much more.

 Aquí, The interview we held on 11 June with Mariuccia Fausta Quilleri and Cristina Sanulli to discuss the petition and its direct experiences.

Mayor Beppe Sala's 'gift' to Pride
From now on, in Milan, the birth certificates of children of 'homogenous couples' will be automatically registered, including those born from surrogacy. Although the law and subsequent rulings firmly condemn the practice and point the way to 'adoption' for the 'intended' parent. But the registry office is the responsibility of the State, not of local administrations. And the Milanese have never been asked about it: all the critical aspects of a unilateral and very glamorous decision that could also present profiles of unconstitutionality
'We have restarted the recognition of children born in Italy by homogenous couples': the words with which Mayor Beppe Sala announced his personal 'gift' to Pride initially caused some confusion. In fact, children born 'in Italy' on the initiative of - and not 'by' - same-sex couples are only the children of women united with other women. The children of male couples are born in Canada, California or other procreative tourism destinations, but not in Italy [...].

School ends, forced withdrawals of children begin again
Despite a recent ruling by the Supreme Court of Cassation defining the forced removal of minors as 'outside the rule of law', this morning in the province of Lodi an 11-year-old boy was snatched from his mother, who was forcibly and deceptively detained while her son was taken. Here is how the events unfolded in the account of a witness
This morning in the province of Lodi, in Casalmaiocco, an 11-year-old boy, Gioele, was forcibly snatched and suddenly and traumatically removed from the mother with whom he was living. Here are the facts as told by a MaternaMente activist present at the time: 'Deborah and her son had been summoned for a meeting by the social services this morning. The meeting took place online and the SS used reassuring tones. The mother then went to the municipality to [...].

But women still exist
We don't like the title too much, especially that laconic 'again', but thanks to La Repubblica for hosting our intervention in the debate that started with Michela Marzano's text entitled 'Se non è il sesso a fare la donna'. We republish it here because you cannot find it on'online
Published in La Repubblica our text in the debate opened by Michela Marzano with her intervention on 'women with penises' and other wonders. We are keeping the original title that was given to our intervention so as not to cause confusion, even if we do not like it much. Here is the full text to follow. What is a woman? She is the one who brought us into the world, each and every one of us. Of this there can be no doubt. Which in no way means that [...]

Bye bye 'Lia': world stop to trans swimmers in women's races
Despite the scandalous and opportunistic silence of the sports media, the World Swimming Federation closes to male bodies in women's competitions (something similar has also been decided for cycling). Soon, hopefully, all other categories will follow. The trophy-stealing 'Lia' Thomas cases will not happen again. Honour to the female athletes who fought against this colossal injustice. And to all of us who have resisted the misogynistic violence of gender ideology for years.
Fighting is needed: piece by piece the wall of trans-ideology is crumbling. And while the American Democrats - Hillary Clinton's word - are resoundingly distancing themselves from trans-activism because they realise that they are risking the presidency of the United States on these issues, the Fina (Fédération Internationale de Natation), the world governing body of swimming, has voted in favour of new rules according to which transgender athletes will not be allowed to compete in elite women's competitions if they have crossed any part of the [...]

A letter to the editor of Repubblica. To explain to him what a woman is
Reactions from readers - and also readers - to Michela Marzano's unacceptable text according to which anyone is entitled to call herself a woman, and if a woman has something to object to, she is a TERF are multiplying. Here is Alessia Teani's open letter to Maurizio Molinari
Dear Director Maurizio Molinari, I take the liberty of writing to you directly because you have dared to call me a TERF from the pages of your newspaper. You said it to me, to my mother, to my good grandmothers. You have called my granddaughters, my pupils, my friends TERF. You, Mr. Molinari, are calling TERF to all the women who, upon entering the women's locker room, do not expect to see a naked man, with all the arrogance that your well-meaning [...]

Madonna mistress sadomasochism
A bare-breasted Madonna dressed as an S&M mistress paraded on the shoulders of a group of protesters during the Pride in Cremona. These are the reflections of Daniela Tuscano
Maria vulva sacra, Our Lady of Milk, is one of the oldest and most venerated icons, especially in the Middle East and Ethiopia, where Christianity took root from the first century. Even today, the Grotto of Milk in Jerusalem is the destination of incessant pilgrimages of women expecting or wishing to become mothers. Every 29 April, the Orthodox Church celebrates with a splendid hymn the breasts of Mary, the 'life-giving Spring' that lifts the sick from their beds, frees the afflicted, strengthens the frail, [...]
