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.

Locked in a fence. Like in Kabul
Open letter to Mayor Gualtieri and other competent authorities on the incredible scene of discrimination in the Centocelle district in Rome: women isolated like unclean animals for the end of Ramadan celebrations. Who gave permission for this unacceptable demonstration? And what steps will be taken against this misogynistic barbarity?
To the Mayor of Rome Roberto Gualtieri To the President of Municipality V Mauro Caliste To the Equal Opportunities Commission of the Municipality of Rome and p.c. To the Minister for Equal Opportunities and the Family Eugenia Roccella To the Minister of the Interior Matteo Piantedosi Dear Mayor, dear President, dear members of the Equal Opportunities Commission, we are dismayed and shocked by the way in which the Municipality V of the Capital - Piazza dei Mirti, Centocelle district, a few metres from the school named after Artemisia Gentileschi - hosted the celebrations [...].

A new AGEDO?
The historic Parents of Homosexuals Association has worked extensively for the acceptance and non-discrimination of gays and lesbians and today dedicates many of its initiatives to children with gender dysphoria. With an essentially affirmative approach, that is, supportive of transition. In a recent webinar it was said perhaps one should break off relations with family members who object and that reasoning about the effects of puberty blockers is off topic. To mention just a few of the more surprising statements
AGEDO (Associazione Genitori Di Omosessuali - Association of Parents of Homosexuals) was an important organisation set up in 1993 on the initiative of Paola Dall'Orto, founder and president until 2007 and awarded the title of Cavaliere al merito della Repubblica in 2009 for her work: 'The aim,' she explained, 'was to help those parents who found themselves in the same situation as us: in a state of discomfort, often despair, and almost always ignorant about the subject [...] We thought we could help these parents to know what they were not [...].

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 [...]

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 [...].

When abortion is violence
A large number of abortions can be explained by the irresponsibility and 'running away' of men. "For whose pleasure am I aborting?" wondered Carla Lonzi. But this male violence is never mentioned and women continue to be blamed. As the ProVita do with their proposal to force them to listen to the fetus' heartbeat
Admittedly, I told ProVita's Maria Rachele Ruiu in all frankness that forcing a woman intending to have an abortion to listen to the fetus' heartbeat is not an admissible proposal. It is a senseless, sadistic, punitive and probably unconstitutional idea that would probably only have the effect of encouraging clandestine abortion. Perhaps the proposal will never go on the table and will remain mere propaganda. Bad propaganda though. Once again in the crosshairs there [...]
