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.

Petrillo: my body doesn't count, I want to use women's showers. And withdraws from the Torun World Championships for reasons of 'safety'
Winning competitions is not enough: Petrillo also claims to use the women's changing rooms after the Italian Athletics Federation at the request of female athletes decided on reserved spaces. "The state recognises me as a woman, male genitals don't count. Besides,' she sneers, 'it certainly won't be the first time they see them. In the meantime, she renounces the next world championships for 'security' reasons.
A few days ago, we published a report on the competition of Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo in Ancona, with the reactions of the female athletes beaten by her male body. The female athletes made it clear that, although they respected Petrillo's personal journey, athletically they were not on a par and that they felt discriminated against. The statements made by the female athletes to the Feminist Post were taken up by other newspapers, including Il Giornale (here), and provoked comments from Petrillo, who had [...]

The men's ultracorp of the transatlete Petrillo continues to win everything. Opponents react
Valentina née Fabrizio once again outclassed her opponents in Ancona on 12 March. She now has eight master's titles, whereas before the transition - when she competed with the men - she had not even won one. Now she is preparing for the world championships. Here a summary of the races and statements from the athletes unjustly deprived of victory
Valentina born Fabrizio Petrillo, born in 1973, turns 50 this year and changes category in national masters athletics competitions. On 11 and 12 March in Ancona, she competed for the first time in the F50 category, i.e. with female athletes aged 50 to 54. And again, with her ultra-masculine body, she easily racked up trophies and records that used to belong to female athletes. But what is it like to see a live ultra-male body competing against female bodies? What are [...]

Prefect to Mayor Sala: stop registering children of same-sex couples
The decision makes those girls and boys more equal and not unequal as we read in many ideological comments today. Starting with the equal right to the truth about one's origins enshrined in all international conventions. And to the attribution of the same rights of citizenship granted to every new born: that is why
The prefect of Milan has ordered the mayor Beppe Sala to block the transcription of birth certificates of children born by same-sex couples. For example, it will no longer be possible to fully transcribe birth certificates produced abroad - in Ukraine, Canada, California, etc. - by surrogacy, which also applies to heterosexual couples who have undertaken this practice. We radical feminists had appealed to the prefect to order Mayor Sala to respect the [...]

Transsexuality is not a lunch for genderqueers
Being transgender is not transgenderism but a deeply dramatic experience with an uncertain outcome. Which has nothing to do with the stale stereotypes with which gender identity is expressed. Neviana Calzolari's reflections
Republished courtesy of Dol's Magazine. Original article here Neviana Calzolari, sociologist, activist, writer and TV face. Yet hardly mainstream, indeed among the most acute (and critical) observers of the social-political landscape of our times (...) The I-Dee group of Milan and the Ipazia association of Catania met her. - The Zan bill was designed to combat homotranssphobia, therefore with good intentions,' Neviana began, 'despite this I remain sceptical about certain terminology, in particular 'gender identity', which alarms much of the world [...].

Women and the left: a toxic love
Betrayed, abused, humiliated. And finally supplanted by self-identified neo-women who are far more attractive and functional than the 'old' women by birth. Yet many among us cannot break away from the progressives who show in every way that they do not consider them. The same dynamics of a sick relationship
All loves are born and die, and when they end there is always the one who suffers the most, sometimes only one party, the one who loved sincerely, the other perhaps not, perhaps he was lying. And we women believed in love with the left side seriously, with all our hearts: naively we thought we were the favourites, we believed in promises, even those that clearly appeared false. Carla Lonzi already reminded us half a century ago that the left had sold us 'to the hypothetical Revolution', and even overseas the [...]

Femicide and Feminicide
According to a narrow interpretation, the number of these crimes would be decreasing because not all murders of women would fall under this heading. A false and dangerous reading of the data that deserves careful vigilance
The term femicide was first introduced by criminologist Diana H. Russel to define those situations in which a woman's death is the outcome/consequence of misogynistic attitudes or practices. Mexican anthropologist and politician Marcela Lagarde, conversely, introduces the term femicide to describe 'the extreme form of gender-based violence against women, produced by the violation of their human rights in public and private spheres through various misogynistic conducts such as mistreatment, physical, psychological, sexual, educational, [...]
