Señores y Señores

Lenguaje no sexista

Primera escena:

En una sala de reuniones hay 10 mujeres. Una persona se dirige a ellas y les dice: Como ustedes saben, señoras, mañana habrá elecciones y todas…

Segunda escena:

A la misma sala de reuniones donde se encuentran las 10 mujeres, entra un hombre. La persona que se dirige a ellas dice: Y recuerden señores, que mañana todos…

Automáticamente, las 10 mujeres perdieron y cambiaron su identidad idiomática. Se convirtieron en señores. Su identidad idiomática  termina en cuanto aparezca una persona del género masculino en escena.

Se usa el género masculino como neutro, como si abarcara ambos géneros. Una regla gramatical que refleja una  visión del mundo y la lengua centrada en lo masculino.

Este androcentrismo se transmite en los textos escolares, en la literatura, en los libros de ciencia y en la historia,  sin ninguna reflexión.  La repetición y el reforzamiento de los valores sociales se hace desde el

lenguaje. Así, se construye una sociedad donde las mujeres no existen por sí mismas, se construye un mundo dominado por los hombres.

“Pero del mismo modo, el lenguaje es una extraordinaria oportunidad para modificar estereotipos y prejuicios y puede transformarse en un medio efectivo de cambio cultural” *

Si cambiamos el lenguaje, ganamos:

Relaciones equitativas. Señoras y señores…

Un lenguaje que no discrimine a nadie en relación a su sexo. Los campesinos y las campesinas  tienen derecho a la propiedad de la tierra…

Visibilidad de las mujeres y de los hombres en oposición a la exclusión de las primeras. Las niñas y niños juegan a la pelota…

Nuevas palabras que enriquecen el lenguaje y nuestras relaciones. La ministra, la jueza, la doctora, la humanidad, la niñez y juventud, los derechos humanos…

Seres humanos valorados por sí mismos y no en relación con otros. Los hombres y mujeres de ciencia…

  1. Hello There. I discovered your blog the use of msn. This is an extremely well written article.
    I will make sure to bookmark it and come back to learn extra of your helpful
    information. Thanks for the post. I will definitely
    return.

  2. Have seen and heard about such an insect for the first time. I really like being aware of about different forms of insects and animals. The life cycle on the insect shared in here seems to become quite fascinating. Will appear forward to more such exciting posts.

  3. GoDaddy technology support is really frustrating. First, I used their applications panel to install joomla, but when I published my local site through ftp, this didn’t work. I called GoDaddy support and they tend not to give support for migrating a local site to their host. You just have to build it from scratch from their installation. That stinks. Solutions?.

  4. I actually don’t enjoy livejournal or xanga. I actually already have both of those. I used to be going to try deadjournal since I read on here it turned out really good, but I have a tendency want to have to cover it and you have to have an invite code to get in free. Does anybody have an ask code they could give me, or a suggestion on another free blogging website I really could try? Details would be helpful..

  5. Good day! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this page to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

  6. For instance, major music stores like iTunes aren’t available in Asia and US TV networks which let viewers discover programmes on the website don’t make such programmes open to viewers outside the US. This is even in the event that people are ready to pay to download or see the articles.. Isn’t an internet store or channel exactly where content is certainly legitimately distributed globally feasible?. If the federal government is responsible for restricting distribution, which government are we talking about? The government in the country in which the content is certainly produced or the government in the country in which the content is to be imported to?.

  7. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

  8. Hi We are aiming to preview articles from tumblr on a individual site, where the most recent content would appear and could connect to the blog by itself. I have researched enough and read about rss. I can code html, xml etc . I would really appreciate any help.
