L’Unione Europea ci ha da decenni abituati a diffidare da documenti e convenzioni che esprimono in più di milleduecento pagine tra testo ed allegati concetti che dovrebbero essere semplici, esprimibili in due paginette.
Un proverbio medievale enunciava:
«Der Teufel, versteckt sich, in den Einzelheiten.»
«Il diavolo si nasconde nei dettagli»
Chiediamo al sig Lettore di avere la pazienza di leggere almeno l’incipit del preambolo, tanto per farsi una idea sul tipo di prosa in oggetto: poi faremo seguire un estratto di alcune delle frasi salienti, che saranno una gran bella sorpresa.
Il lettore resterà a bocca aperta ed il suo portafoglio avrà subito un altro salasso.

«“gender” shall mean the socially constructed roles, behaviours, activities and attributes that a given society considers appropriate for women and men;»
«Parties shall undertake to include a gender perspective in the implementation and evaluation of the impact of the provisions of this Convention»
«Parties shall take the necessary legislative or other measures to ensure that gender-based violence against women may be recognised as a form of persecution within the meaning of Article 1, A (2), of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees and as a form of serious harm giving rise to complementary/subsidiary protection»
«Parties shall ensure that a gender-sensitive interpretation is given to each of the Convention grounds and that where it is established that the persecution feared is for one or more of these grounds, applicants shall be granted refugee status according to the applicable relevant instruments.»
«Parties shall take the necessary legislative or other measures to develop gender-sensitive reception procedures and support services for asylum-seekers as well as gender guidelines and gender-sensitive asylum procedures, including refugee status determination and application for international protection.»
«Parties shall co-operate with each other, in accordance with the provisions of this Convention, and through the application of relevant international and regional instruments on co-operation in civil and criminal matters, arrangements agreed on the basis of uniform or reciprocal legislation and internal laws, to the widest extent possible, for the purpose of: …. protecting and providing assistance to victims;»

– La Convenzione definisce il gender come “socially constructed roles, behaviours, activities and attributes that a given society considers appropriate for women and men“: di conseguenza, essendo la Unione Europea la “society“, è gender ciò che l’Unione Europea stabilisca lo sia.
– A quanti riferiscano essere perseguitati a cause del loro gender “shall be granted refugee status“.
– Quanti riferiscano essere perseguitati a motivo del gender spettano i “support services“.
– A quanti riferiscano essere stati perseguitati a causa del loro gender spetta quindi “protecting and providing assistance“

In parole poverissime, ci scusino coloro che già hanno capito come funziona il sistema, chiunque si presentasse in uno stato firmatario la Convenzione di Istanbul e dichiarasse di riconoscersi in una delle 179 forme in cui può esprimersi il gender e di essere stato impedito di esprimersi appieno nel riferito paese natio, acquisterebbe ipso facto lo status di rifugiato, con tutti i benefici del caso.
Il gender è qui utilizzato per garantire l’asilo come rifugiato.
Qualcuno però ha letto testo e allegati.
«A wave of opposition in Central Europe to “gender ideology” and other radical beliefs has led Bulgaria and Slovakia to oppose ratifying the Istanbul Convention»
«More nation states must start defying the “group think” mentality of the so-called “international community”»
«Detractors claim that this opens the door to legalising gay marriage and promoting homosexuality in school by promoters of “gender ideology”.»
«Slovakia and others in Central Europe do not need some bizarre international treaty containing a definition of “gender”»
«This attempt by the globalists to redefine “gender” is both nauseating and deranged»
«I am against the emergence of compact Muslim communities in Slovakia on principle …. So that these communities are not able to preserve the habits that Europe and its Christian historical roots refute as wrong and unjust.” …. Unless there is full compliance with the provisions of the convention with the definition of marriage as a bond between a man and a woman, I will never agree to ratify» [Fico]
