KVELLER, Daniel Boianovsky; CAVALHEIRO, Rafael  e  TIETBOEHL, Léo. Childhoods, queer theories, and psychoanalysis: Beyond the progress principle and heteronormativity. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2021, vol.33, n.2, pp. 237-255. ISSN 0103-5665.

This article builds on queer studies and psychoanalysis to reflect upon the concepts of trauma and death drive. First, we examine the traumatic effects of heteronormativity. To do so, we engage with Édouard Louis' novel "The End of Eddy", and Judith Butler's reading of Freudian trauma theory. Then, in a broader cultural analysis, we suggest how queerness itself can disrupt and subvert conservative discursive strategies that have been circulating in the Brazilian public sphere. In this second section, we dialogue specifically with Lee Edelman's theorization of the death drive. Ultimately, we emphasize the idea of queer children, considering that these heteronormative discourses are articulated and reproduced in the contemporary Brazilian political context precisely in the name of a presumed "healthy" childhood and a "normal" psycho-sexual development.

Palavras-chave : psychoanalysis; queer theory; childhood; trauma.
