BLANCO, Rafael. Discursos sobre las sexualidades entre jóvenes universitarios/as: lo familiar como modelizador de la discursividad generacional. La ventana [online]. 2009, vol.3, n.29, pp. 184-205. ISSN 1405-9436.
Researchers in Latin America have pointed out the existence among young girls and boys of an emerging discourse oriented to breaking away from traditional gender roles, models, and stigmatizing views of sexualities. These diagnoses, however, are usually colored by a romantic outlook that places upon the younger generations its own hopes for change and progress. Due to the need to consider these issues in the context of wider processes -such as the relationship between heredity and experience-, I intend to analyze the representations among young university students on the adoption of children by same-sex couples. Using them as "witness cases", I aim to analyze these discourses from the viewpoint of feminist family studies, looking for the distinctive features on which the generational discourse is built.
