Besides getting rights and freedoms, over the past 100 years have been discovering the intricacies of human sexuality. This has produced a lot of words and concepts that describe reality. The need to find an inclusive terminology of all sexual diversity, often raises too much the speech and is difficult to understand, if we also consider the speech often is mixed with activism.
We think it is necessary that the general public knows to call things by their name in a proper way, because knowing the names of things could be the first step to know them. This is the purpose of this glossary.
|Queer theory|| |
It is one of the most fascinating and complex issues of all the LGBT cultural construction. The idea is that states that all aspects of sexual identity are social constructs embodied in labels such as male, female, straight, gay, lesbian, transgender, etc. From here borns the Genderqueer, which is also a label to advocate for the elimination of lables. In Queer talks there is much mixture explaining how human sexuality works, with how sexuality should be. Queer means twisted, and this sopposed the appropriation of the term, until then used to mark and insult, to transform it into a big protest concept.
