Term Definition

currently the DRAE defines Virago as masculine woman, and this is why it is related to lesbians and is used synonymously, as well as derived words Viragismo, Viragista, etc. However, originally the meaning was entirely different, since Virago comes directly from Latin to mean heroin woman, and so appears in the CORDE in his first dating in 1160. Later, in 1607 it appears collected for the first time in a Spanish-French dictionary, with the meaning of "virtuous woman doing man things". As time and successive translations and definitions are done, since for those societys could not be feminine characteristics, it is going from characterize the woman as brave and courageous, to masculine woman. It is the concept they had of women, which robs people of some notable features in favor of men's own characteristics. Over time these definitions suggest that if a woman shows male characteristics, it may be lesbian.
