BENTO, Berenice. In school we learn that the difference makes a difference. Rev. Estud. Fem. [online]. 2011, vol.19, n.2, pp. 549-559. ISSN 0104-026X.

This article explores the limits of social institutions in dealing with the subjects fleeing gender norms. I will focus mainly on the responses given by schools to students whose gender performance departs from what is considered normal.
