I am TRYING to read an article entitled "Television para jodidos."

One sentence is: "Mexico es un pais de una clase modesta muy jodida, que no va salir de jodida."

I have googled and discovered that sometimes it refers to that "bad" word in English that begins with "f."

But I have also read that it refers to people who are considered a nuisance or people who disturb us (children, the poor, the indigenous). One person translates it as "why-were-we-born people."

I get the feeling that in that sentence, the meaning seems to be something like "nobodies" or ordinary people who will never have a better life.

Could you please give me a good definition in English. In Mexico, what exactly is a "jodido"?

Gente jodida = People who tend to make things not easy for others.

And you are right, in some Spanish-speaking countries, Joder means "to fuck".

Al menos en Colombia, hay doble siginificacion:
"ESTAR JODIDO": es estar mal, apabullado, en mala situacion, en la inmunda."fulano...esta jodido"
diferente a:
"SER JODIDO": Persona dificil de doblegar, recursiva, que siempre se sale con la suya, ser habil en los dilemas y situaciones."fulano...es un jodido"

tambien:
"JODASE": A quien no hace caso de consejos ni advertencias, que no admite colaboraciones o que se inmiscuyan en sus asuntos. Con esta expresion o pensamiento es como una sentencia en que se le da toda la responsabilidad a esa persona de su vida o asunto. "entonces...que se joda"
"A JODER": A quien quiere perturbar o aprovecharse abusivamente de algo o de una situacion. "vayase a joder a otro".
"UNA JODA": Es algo estorboso, un problema, un asunto que perturba y con el enfasis o contexto, se quiere minimizar o maximizar con esa expresion.

Thank you, frcort.

By the way, someone told me that a good translation for "jodidos" is sometimes "the underdogs of society."

Besides what's already been said, "jodido" is the derogatory term some wealthy people use to refer to poor people in México. So a "jodido" is just someone poorer than them. For the top 10% wealthy people in Mexico, the remaining 90% are "jodidos", and they call them so, behind their backs

Thank you very much.

By the way, your user name is very interesting.

I know that this is a language forum, not a political forum, but I have read that some people think that it would be very good for PEMEX and Mexico if SOME foreign investment were allowed to help modernize PEMEX.

I have read how proud the Mexican people were when President Cardenas nationalized the oil fields in the 1930's, but many people say that in 2013, PEMEX really needs billions of dollars in order to modernize and make more money for Mexico.

Your user name tells us that you STRONGLY disagree.


Merry Christmas to you and your family.

yhea i agree with you theparser, investment is a great idea, but thanks to bad administrations and non straight government, is hard to believe this is for the good of all people, most of times is for the good of rich people, but in other hand this was really necessary, if the reform hadn't been approve , PEMEX could have gone bankrupt,el plan es bueno pero el gobierno siempre termina jodiéndonos

Yes, ALL governments are corrupt to varying degrees.

I have read about the degree of corruption in Mexico, and it is truly sad!


Some tourists have been the victims of el "mordido."
