MARICONOLOGÍA / MARICONÓLOGY: NOTES ON THE HISTORY AND USE OF MARICÓN

“Regardless of where Spanish speakers are located in Latin America, Spain, or the United States, the first thing many of them picture when hearing or reading the word maricón is the image of a homosexual or queer/cuir[1] man with feminine behavior. Besides the term’s antiquity – it goes back at least to the sixteenth century – maricón is probably one of the most insulting words that can be said to call a masculine-presenting person or used to name one in the Spanish language.”
