RODRIGUEZ, Brunella Carla; GOMES, Isabel Cristina  and  OLIVEIRA, Danielly Passos de. Family and naming in contemporaneity: a psychoanalytic reflection. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.8, n.1, pp. 135-150. ISSN 2236-6407.

This paper intends to reflect on current family models and the possibilities to name these, examining the transformation of the symbolic order in naming systems, parenthood and relationship between sexes. Based on Butler's theories of gender issues and on psychoanalytic references for the bonds, we point out where the norm is ruptured, the moments in which the unintelligible requires a name: as an affirmation of the legitimacy of the very existence of the subject. Through the analisys of an interview, with a homoparental family by adoption, we will present questions about the roles in the family, the related naming system and its implications for the bonds, as the effect of breaking the heterocentric norm. We will make explicit the effects of gender reinventions linked to the recognition of the otherness of the subjects in marital and parental relationships.

Keywords : family; homosexuality; gender relations; psychoanalysis.
