To the act and result of transgressing it is called transgression or trespass. Transgress (transgress), meanwhile, refers to violate or disobey a rule, guideline, or rule.
The transgression is usually associated with a violation of customs or traditions. A transgressive person, in this sense, does not follow the commands.
For a man to paint his lips and wear clothes usually intended for woman it can be considered a transgression. This does not mean that the subject’s behavior is negative or reprehensible, but that does not adapt to social conventions. If, with the passage of time, it is socially accepted that there should be no gender distinction regarding makeup and clothing, there will no longer be transgression in this type of case.
On the ground of art, a transgression is a provocation. The transgressive artist seeks to generate impact with his actions, attracting attention. A writer who does not respect the spelling rules in a novel, for example, commits a transgression. The same is done by a conductor offering a concert wearing a bathing suit.
These two examples lead us to think about the relative of social norms, which in most cases is capricious or arbitrary. To think that much of society looks with a bad eye at a man who puts on makeup, who sports long hair, or who wears a skirt just because the laws dictate it. conventions of the moment is really worrying.
We know that these barriers will be broken down, but the problem is that others arise and that the cycle seems to never end. There is an ideal, and it is freedom, equality, that each living being can fulfill its mission without invading the space of others or suffering the invasion of others. What does it matter how we dress or what we look like to our own body? Is not each individual the sole owner of his body? In a utopian world, not only would there be no talk of transgression, but there would be no labels for these questions, because it would not be necessary to make them a subject of debate.
All that said, since the world in which we have created is far from being based on the principle of “live and let live”, transgression is necessary to open the doors to change. But it is important to clarify that it is not easy, because in many cases the pioneers must suffer different types of retaliation from their detractors, from verbal rejection to violence physical, including death.
For the religion, a sin is the willful transgression of a moral principle. When a person acts badly from a moral point of view, knowing what he is doing, he is sinning. If a Catholic decides to lie, to mention a possibility, he violates one of the Ten Commandments and therefore sins.
It is called marine transgression, finally, to what happens when the sea it occupies a continental territory, making the coastline advance inland. A rise in the sea level or a coastal subsidence can cause this type of flooding.
From a geological point of view, this phenomenon it takes place because of others that extend for a long time, such as tectonic or volcanic processes that can reach thousands of years or even millions. Take for example the Mesozoic era (known in zoology by the name of age of the dinosaurs and in botany, of cycads): one of its main characteristics was that it exhibited long-lasting marine transgressions, in which ocean masses invaded large regions.
If its origin is an oil exploitation that extends for a long time, on the other hand, the marine transgression lasts less and covers zones smallest, generally those closest to the source of the problem.
