Example text

I also agree with Burton-Nelson (1995), that sport symbolizes and legitimates this dominance. I agree with Chodorow (1978), that the reproductory process and mothering structurally generates inequality. I agree with Rich (1980) in that compulsory heterosexuality prevents patriarchy from being contested. And I agree with Bourdieu (2001), in viewing male dominance from a historical materialist (radical feminist) perspective. Ultimately, however, I think New (2001: 735) says it best, suggesting that in order to better understand patriarchy we must drop the fantasy that, there is a group of timeless heterosexual men sitting around somewhere outside social relations, devising a world that would keep their slippers handy, their dinners nicely served, and their sexual desires met for all eternity.

As men increasingly occupy traditionally feminized terrain, the gendered and stigmatized nature of those gendered spaces is destined to change. Accordingly, I next examine how men whom I describe as aspiring to the principles of inclusive masculinity associate with femininity in ways that men in both masculinized and feminized terrains previously have not. I begin by looking at the institutional attitudes of two university cheerleading associations, and how their variance influences men to adopt either an orthodox or inclusive perspective.

One can imagine that fi nding homosexual sex and love in pastoral regions was difficult. Conversely, cities collected such quantities of people that gay social networks and even a gay identity could form. This coincided with a growing body of scholarly work from Westphal, Ulrichs and Krafft-Ebing, early pioneers of the gay liberationist movement. These scholars sought to classify homosexual acts as belonging to a type of person; a third sex, an invert, or homosexual (Spencer 1995). From this, they could campaign for legal and social equality.
