Tortillera. Lesbian Dictionary: Spain. Moscas de Colores.

The queen of the queer Universe.

Tortillera is one of the most used slang words in Spain and Latin America to call homosexual women. Its origin may be of the oldest and most controversial, especially since Tortillera has been a word that has traveled from one side of the Atlantic to the other maintaining its slang meaning and blurring its origin and history.

We found many web pages where people ask for or explain its origin, but most unconvincing, such as the reference to a book called Maitreya that can not be the origin of the word by its publication date, and too the almost naif association that set many people between the sound from kneading corn pancakes, a clap, and the sound from the lesbian sex ... we could imagine moans not clapping in lesbian sex. Couldn’t We? Do not miss the video of Jesusa Rodríguez who explains it very well, although we do not agree with her.

Note that in Mexico a Tortillera is also a woman who makes corn pancakes, having even Tortilleras union. What great them !!!!

The most likely origin of the word Tortillera is "torta" an old Spanish word that means twisted, as the French term "tortille". The social status of homosexuality as something twisted or deviated is the origin of this expression, as just as we find in the English term "queer" meaning twisted and that comes from the German word "que" with the same meaning.

Tortillera is thus an essential term in the explanation of homosexuality through the words, because connects with the beginning of homophobia, also because it is a traveler term who crossed the Atlantic to have its own and distinct development, and because it is a Spanish version of the word queer. With this design we would strip the word tortilera of all the negative meaning like queer theorists made ​​and before the Mexican tortilleras done, and put the word in the proper place.

Tortillera, the Queen of the Queer Universe.
