The notion of prude alludes to whom evidence excessive or excessive moral suspicions . The mojigato individual is shocked by the behaviors and the attitudes of most people, presenting himself as a bastion of good manners and of what is "Right".
A mojigato exaggerates his self-control and deprives himself of all kinds of pleasures . In addition, in general, it does not externalize its true feelings, desires and emotions since it intends to keep an impeccable facade.
We can find an archetype of a prude in Ned Flanders , the character of The Simpson , who bases his actions on what his religion (or his interpretation of it) marks him as acceptable. This is someone who defines each of their steps according to what is written in the Bible and that he even communicates with his religious leader (the Reverend Joy or Lovejoy ) to seek approval in everyday or insignificant decisions.
Take the case of three girls who go out to dance. While two have fun moving without prejudice to the rhythm of the music , the third one stays still in a corner to think that the dance is inappropriate for a lady. Given this situation, the young woman who does not dance as a prudence could be qualified.
It is important to mention that this adjective It is usually used disparagingly. The subject indicated as a prudence may not consider himself that way; On the contrary, you can argue that you are doing the right thing from a moral or religious point of view.
The Mojigata , on the other hand, is the name of a street band founded in 1999 in Uruguay . This group presented more than a dozen albums and participated in numerous editions of the Uruguayan carnival.
