RIBEIRO, Paulo César de Carvalho. A preliminary issue to collective actions to combat machismo. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.8, n.spe, pp. 163-176. ISSN 1983-8220.

Starting from the difficulty found in loving and sexual relations between men and women today, some thoughts on machismo in relation to the constitution of the unconscious and sexuality are presented. An effort is made to go beyond the social and cultural aspects of machismo in order to trace its roots in the passive situation inherent in the original seduction, as described by Jean Laplanche. Freud's writings gathered under "contributions to the psychology of love" are taken as references, and a recent text, widely disseminated on the Internet, entitled "The incredible generation of women that was brought up to be everything a man does not want", is critically analyzed.

Keywords : Machismo; Sexuality; Unconscious.
