Favorite Machismo Quotes

1. "Vocês foram injustiçadas em muitos períodos pela estupidez, machismo e prepotência dos homens. E vocês cuidaram de nós carinhosamente, seja no seu útero biológico seja no útero social. Agora, novamente, vocês estão sendo maltratadas e controladas, Só que desta vez no cerne da sua psique. Não permitam. Vejam-se belas. Sintam-se belas. Não se comparem a ninguém."
Author: Augusto Cury
2. "To be "bad" is good not simply because it subverts the language of the dominant white culture but also because it imposes a unique kind of order for young black men on their own distinctive chaos and solicits an attention that makes others pull back with some trepidation.

Author: Cornel West

7. "One must always be careful, for the art of shamanism is fueled by the power of the will, interacting with the power of the plants. And it seems all too easy for some shamans to warp that power to dark ends, to the 'shamachismo' that can drive them to serve selfish ego desires. Power corrupts, and the spirit world can corrupt absolutely if it's not approached from a perspective of openness and servitude."
Author: Rak Razam
8. "I don't care if you wear white to your coming-out party and pretend to be a virgin, but you're gay, Kit. G-A-Y. Gay! So gay, fairies everywhere will weep that your machismo avoided their gaydar for so long."
Author: Tibby Armstrong
9. "It was not their irritating assumption of equality that annoyed Nicholai so much as their cultural confusions. The Americans seemed to confuse standard of living with quality of life, equal opportunity with institutionalized mediocrity, bravery with courage, machismo with manhood, liberty with freedom, wordiness with articulation, fun with pleasure - in short, all of the misconceptions common to those who assume that justice implies equality for all, rather than equality for equals."
Author: Trevanian
