SALES, Shirlei Rezende  and  PARAISO, Marlucy Alves. The macho young man and the difficult young woman: government of the sexuality in the curriculum. Educ. Real. [online]. 2013, vol.38, n.2, pp.603-625. ISSN 2175-6236.

This article refers to fragments of the school's curriculum discourses and the Orkut's curriculum (a social network website). The objective is to analyze the production of youthful subjectivities in the interface of the school's curriculum and the curriculum of Orkut. The developed argument is that the sexuality is a device set in motion in the school curriculum discourse and of the curriculum of the Orkut, for the government of youth. In these discourses it is possible to notice an intense regulation of the youthful sexuality guided in the heteronormativity. The regulation goes by the joking around technology, which is composed of sarcasm, irony, mockery, repudiation, interdiction, etc., techniques. In the boys's case, in discourses there is a declared homophobia, demanding the young macho man. As for the girls, the regulation reflects the number of dated partners, thus determining the difficult young woman.
