Discursive fallacies regarding gender ideology
The discourses around so-called Gender Ideology have changed in each region of Latin America and have metastasized to diﬀerent social levels. In Colombia, the strategy has been feminism and gender, religious fundamentalisms, discursive fallacies, social mobilization, gender ideology inﬂuenced by misinformation and the lack of a strong social movement that confronts the arguments contained in an increasingly confusing discourse. This is why, in this article, the evolution of the concept and its impact on Colombian and Latin American religious fundamentalisms is presented with the aim of revealing the main discursive fallacies that surround this discourse. The ultimate objective is to contribute, from within the academy, to the debate of what could be called one of the most forceful strategies, in recent years, to cut oﬀ progress and turn back on the rights of women and Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals and Transsexuals.
