QUARTIERO, Eliana Teresinha  e  NARDI, Henrique Caetano. Sexual diversity at school: production of subjectivity and public policies. Rev. Mal-Estar Subj. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.2, pp. 701-725. ISSN 1518-6148.

This study investigates the effects of the statements of the current public policies on the sexual diversity proposed for education, mainly through the program Brasil Sem Homofobia (Brazil without homophobia). The analysis of the practices installed in the school daily has as a focus understand effects of the proposition of an inclusive and non-sexist education particularly regarding homophobia. The research was done in two public network schools of Porto Alegre, one belonging to the state and the other to the municipality, where daily observations of the school and interviews with teachers were made. This research was developed from a genealogical orientation using the theoretical production of Michel Foucault as a means to reflect on the conditions of possibility of the emergence and implementation of these public policies and their impact on school practices. In these practices there is a well-marked place for the other, the logic usually used refers to an ideal, what should be, the expected - the heteronormativity. Different discourses are used to keep the different in a distant place. The proposal of inclusion is bound to a deficiency, disadvantage, deviation, of the individual that needs the intervention of the inclusive process. The state intervention justifications are of protection and constitute a place for the aimed population of people in risk and vulnerability. The achievement of legal rights is being fundamental for the guarantee of spaces and legitimacy and there is an appropriation by the teachers of the legal discourse of human rights and sexual rights. The possibility of inclusion of the sexual different is supported in the discourse that all have rights to schooling, but a question that presents itself on the proposal of inclusion is its use as a practice of tolerance and attempt of ending the differences having the normality as a reference.
