GONTIJO, Rogéria Araújo Guimarães  and  MORAIS, Míria Raquel Rodrigues. The Feminine Man in the Current Thought of Psychoanalysis. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2021, vol.16, n.3, pp. 1-15. ISSN 1809-8908.

This article is a theoretical research that aims to go through Freud and Lacan's studies about the feminine. Since the beginning of Psychoanalysis, Freud discussed about the feminine in the hysteria, and the lack of penis became a mark of femininity, considering the anatomy as a destiny to talk about sexuality. Lacan expanded this vision by treating this question in terms of signifier.To explain that, he created the "sexuation board", approaching what it means to be man or woman by the Psychoanalysis's look. Through this study, we ratify that the female points to the lack, in the sense that it is associated with the woman's figure. But the main question that runs through this investigation is: can a man be feminine? The answer to this question relates to the virile decline nowadays. The new garment that man wears in the face of patriarchal loosening is to be feminine or to become yourself feminized.

Keywords : Female; Man; Sexualization.
