The Construction of Latino Youth, by Jacobo Schifter

Different

We have erronous assumptions of what Latin sexuality is all about and this is one of the major works on how Latinos are brought to have the particular ideas about sexuality that they have. Schifter analyses how Latin gender is a threat to human rights and how young people use gender to develop their ethical guidelines. The author develops Foucault´s ideas about sexual discourses and shows us how six major sexual discourses, their tenets, contradictions and resistances are the basis of Latin American sexual culture.
