The article that next is presented, approaches an analysis of the School Physical Education Argentina in gender perspective, deepening in the following queries: How the speeches and do the practices of the physical education configure a certain masculinity and not another? and which are the knowledge and the practices that, from the physical education, do they legitimate the ways of masculinity? For it, in first term, a brief reference is made to the history of the discipline identifying the practices that have configured masculine and feminine bodies differentially. In a second moment, the current classes of physical education are analyzed (modality only of males) starting from ethnographic registrations and interviews to the educational ones and the students. The analyses evidence the existence of diverse masculinities that you/they enter in scene during the sport physical practices. Certain codes of the language, certain terms, certain micropractices, certain somatic culture and certain representations go contributing to the construction of hegemonic masculinities and subordinate masculinities. In this school sport scenario, the sexism, the homophobe and the nested difference find a place anything despicable. Male and not so male dispute “the match” of the inequality. However, none wins.
