«Gender Ideology» and education policy in Brazil: Exclusion and manipulation of a heteronormative speech
This article makes a critical feminist analysis of the manipulation of the discourse «gender ideology» around the approval of the Common National Curriculum Base in Brazil. The argument here developed seeks to affirm that the look of estrangement towards the Other is fundamental in the way in which the manipulation of this discourse raises the centrality of the heteronormativity of gender in education policy. It also seeks to demonstrate how this centrality is present in the final approval of the document with the exclusion of the theme of gender and sexuality. Finally, this approach seeks to join the set of other works that continue on the path of academic resistance against the conservative wave in Brazil.
