This essay discusses the relationship between the identity of a culture capital, and gender scripts produced by origin myths in the exhibition and woman illness to HIV-AIDS. Myths are narratives useful to man to check understanding of the world: a cosmology that propagates in the psychic life of the subject, making it real devices on the bodies. In societies of Judeo-Christian tradition, the Eden is the mythical point of origin. Therefore, two important identity representations attributed to the woman were built: Eva, whose sexuality signed sin and death in humankind, and Mary, the one who sees the Son of God without sin. In this imaginary persists depreciation on female sexuality and the statement of the woman the mother condition and wife in the home of patriarchy space. From clinical listening to patients with HIV-AIDS seen at the referral hospital for the treatment of HIV-AIDS, we were faced not only with the presence of identity capital of the origins of myths and their representations of gender, but also with the prospect that this capital could impact on the diagnosis, causing extreme psychological distress. So it was not just the discomfort with the narcissistic attack illness by HIV-AIDS, but also the presence of the mythical capital, when they [in]corporated and [in]carnated the identity representations of gender. A slander capable to expose them to contagion, but also tax them with the illness now face the risk of vertical transmission, prays for the death of a child or partner by AIDS.
