SILVA, José Maurício da. Nothing will be same way as it has been before. Reverso [online]. 2016, vol.38, n.72, pp. 79-85. ISSN 0102-7395.

The culture in which we are inserted has dictated a familiar model to us - a patriarchal one - and this model has amalgamated ways of being, wearing, behaving and thinking. The conception of gender resulting from this culture is a built representation, therefore, it is historical, symbolic and relational; since it is a construction, then, it can be changed. Thus, the concept of masculinity and femininity is not rooted in a natural order and not even in anatomical or biological data as some societal sectors defend. Any to cultural model, such as stables or de-facto unions, homoparentality, same-sex parenting, contraceptives, are strongly rejected. Given the need we have of certainties or boundaries that assure us, then, we have difficulty to accept what is novel or different or any changes that threaten the popular imagery.

Keywords : Family; Patriarchy; Culture; Nature; Popular Imagery.
