Spanish term or phrase: identidad-propriedad
Chilean cultural critic talking about controversy over Davila's transvestite Simon Bolivar postcard

La ejemplarización del comportamiento "natural" como fundamento de la normalidad humana defendida por el moralismo cristaino y su rígido paradigma de deisciplinamiento de ser, censuraron las problematizaciones de la identidad-propiedad desatadas por la metáfora del travestismo.

I can't figure out if the propriedad has to do with ownership or propriety (i.e, being acceptable under social norms).
