A group of young critics of the Trans Law -which has been recently approved- has boycotted this Wednesday the act organized by the Ministry of Equality on the occasion of 8M. “Feminism is not divided, it is parasitized”they have cried, between cries of “out, out!”, addressed to the Minister of Equality, Irene Montero. One of the girls has asked the minister directly “what is a woman” in allusion to the criticism of feminist organizations for this law, which allows the change of sex in the registry without more requirement than the mere will of the interested party.
It is not the first time that Montero has been interrupted in one of his acts. Just a few days ago, she heard the same criticism at another meeting with women organized by the Ministry, the International Feminist Meeting. The minister was rebuked by a young woman who reminded her that “Being a woman is not a feeling.
The Trans Law has provoked criticism from various feminist associations, which consider that it constitutes discrimination against women and annuls their historical achievements. The norm allows the free change of sex in the registry, without the need to provide medical reports or undergo hormonal treatment for at least two years, as was required until now. The change can be requested from the age of 12. Up to 14, minors will have to have judicial authorization; between the ages of 14 and 16, they must be assisted by their parents, and from the age of 16 the registration modification will be completely free.
Montero responded that “the important thing is that we know that women, because of being women, are more at risk of suffering violence and poverty” and criticized the fact that “there are no women who have a penis, that is, that transgender women They are not women.” “This is a safe space, where it is not said that trans women are not women,” the minister censured.
The young woman has rebutted Montero, reproaching him for not having answered her question about “what is a woman”. “We were born with a biological reality that you deny,” she asserted. Finally, she has summoned the minister to “debate” with the feminist associations critical of her Trans Law.
Without arguments, Montero has insisted that “to say that a trans woman is not a woman is to position herself against the most fundamental rights.” “What threatens women is the lack of sexual education, women, sexual offenders,” she concluded, without referring to the Law of only yes is yeswhich has already allowed more than 700 of these criminals to have seen their sentences reduced.
The Ministry of Equality has organized this Wednesday its own act on the occasion of International Women’s Day, under the motto Now that you see us, this 8M let’s talkand focused on sex education.
The Government has celebrated the 8M completely divided and only one day after the reform of the Law of the only yes is yes presented by the PSOE. The initiative, which Podemos has opposed, has fractured the Executive. For the first time, Pedro Sánchez has not attended the institutional act organized by Equality and has participated on his behalf in a meeting with women managers in La Moncloa.
