The results of the second round of elections for the Assemblée nationale, the lower house of the French parliament, were announced. The centrist ruling coalition Ensemble, led by President Emmanuel Macron, failed to hold more than half of the seats. The People’s Union for the People’s Republic of China (NUPES) has become the second largest force in Congress, while the far-right National League (RN) has won the largest number of seats in history.
Macron, who has just been re-elected, will inevitably face constraints from the left and the right in his subsequent governance. The French media used headlines such as “slap in the face” or “earthquake” to express the defeat of the Macron government, and they also expressed concerns about the future political impasse and governance crisis.

After transgender swimmer Lia Thomas won the gold medal in the NCAA women’s swimming event in the United States, the controversy over the participation of transgender athletes in women’s events continued. “Transgender swimmers will not be allowed to compete in elite-level women’s swimming events, unless gender transition begins at the onset of puberty or before age 12, whichever occurs later, and those receiving drug therapy to suppress testosterone production will be allowed to compete.
FINA’s new policy is one of the strictest rules in the sports industry that restricts transgender people from participating in events, and said that in order to take into account fairness and athlete rights, it hopes to set up an “open group” event for ineligible transgender players in the future. Scientists believe that the physical gap between men and women becomes more pronounced after puberty, and even after accepting gender transitions, physical advantages can still be maintained. However, LGBTQ critics have criticized the new regulations as a repeat of “separation but equality”, which may trigger a chain effect of other sports associations.

As a stay-at-home dad of 14 years, I’m constantly getting comments on what to do with a “real man”…I can bake a lemon tart, and I can build a balcony, neither of which has anything to do with my masculinity – whenever my When my teenage daughter came home from school and wanted to talk to me about her day, I knew exactly what masculinity meant to me: it meant being around my family every day.
