Our focus is mainly upon the proverb type [Tell me whom you love, and I will tell you what you are] quoted in the article [The Nails of Character] from the newspaper DC, 1st November 2001, by LCP, Florianópolis, SC, Brazil.
In this Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) from the viewpoint of critical, systemic, and functional approaches, we identified the semiotic factors, ideological matrix, and intertextuality.

Conclusively, the proverb type along with the article (as a whole) transmits a voice of power by strategically promoting colonization of the target female mass audience, restoring the grim ideological historicity inherent to the Dark Ages, and reactualizing a commodified categorical and partial discourse on a fossilized personal morality that fosters gender-driven prejudice inimical to social change, liberty, symmetry, and justice in human relationships.
