MOUTINHO, Laura. Condemned by desire? Reasons of State in South Africa. Rev. bras. Ci. Soc. [online]. 2004, vol.19, n.56, pp.95-112. ISSN 0102-6909.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-69092004000300007.

This paper aims at analyzing the inter-relation among race, gender, and inter-racial erotic desire in South Africa, based on the study of some cases fitted in the Immorality Act - the law that prohibited inter-racial carnal intercourse in the apartheid era. In South Africa, inter-racial sexual-affective relationships were regulated (and organized) explicitly by a specific legislation, built under the logics of reason of state. Our objective is to adjust the focus to the perception of race that presides such entrepreneurship and to give visibility to the importance of asymmetries of gender and inter-racial erotic desire that appeared in the core of the establishing prohibitions in the apartheid regimen. A contrasting sight on South Africa makes it possible, in the end of the analysis, indistinctly see some blind spots in the Brazilian ideology concerning race, gender, and sexuality.

Palavras-chave : Race and sexuality; Gender and race; Race [rights and sexuality]; Eroticism; Race [nation, and sexuality].
