Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word puto.


  1. Puto

    Puto is a song by the Mexican band Molotov from their album ¿Dónde Jugarán las Niñas?. The word puto literally translates as "man-whore", which is often used as a derogatory term for gay males in Mexican Spanish, similar to the American slang word faggot. It is also used to mean "bastard". However the term is also used to describe an unmanly act such as cowardice. The song itself follows the latter connotation in which the group is mocking those who do not stand up for themselves. The band faced criticism when the song was interpreted as a slur against homosexuals. As a result, the group's first tour in Germany was met with crowds of angry gay and lesbian protestors. The public was only informed of the song's true meaning much later. In defense of the band and their use of the word "puto", producer Gustavo Santaolalla told an interviewer from the Spanish language rock and roll magazine Retila: A remix version of the song exists on their second album Molomix.
