GOMES, Camilla de Magalhães. The Body Matters: Speaking Bodies and the Discursive Production of Sex. Rev. Estud. Fem. [online]. 2020, vol.28, n.3, e59271.  Epub 16-Nov-2020. ISSN 1806-9584.

The decolonial studies show us that coloniality has as its fundamental dichotomy the division between humans and non-humans. What processes, however, produce or fill this opposition? This article seeks to discuss sex as a discursive production that is part of the processes of humanity distribution of western coloniality. In order to do so, it works with the notion of talking bodies, as a way to break with the idea of the body as a blank canvas, nature to which a sense is imprinted through culture. In this way, it becomes possible to question sexual dimorphism and to think of the magnification of the ways in which we attribute the language of sex and thus reconstruct language over bodies in order to allow more, so that we can say that although we only know the bodies through of language, they always exceed it.
