Clark, J. - - 2002
Both Susan Faludi's Stiffed: The Betrayal of the American Man (text) and the film Fight Club (image) insist that men have been emasculated by consumerism; that the post-war legacy of the so-called good life has shifted men from active, heroic, confrontational roles into the passive, ornamental roles usually assigned to ...
Rochlen, Aaron - - 2002

Frankel, Loren - - 2002
First ejaculation research is scant, but studies reveal a contradiction: The majority of males report positive reactions to the event, and they are curious and interested about it, but they also tell no one of the experience. These paradoxical reactions--interest and silence--can be explained by a first ejaculation taboo in ...
DeVoll, Michael - - 2002
Using Jung's archetypes, one can derive models of gender specific behavior for gay men. While not necessarily endorsing the existence of a priori universals, we suggest that these archetypal templates are socially constructed models of behavior. Further, just as many within the mythopoetic movement have used various mythic themes like ...
Robertson, John - - 2002
To identify tacit gender role constructs, 192 younger adults (M age = 21.1) and 126 older adults (M age = 70.1) were given a series of six drawings unrelated to gender, asked to create a brief description of the person who made each drawing, and then asked to guess the ...

Lesotho has an assertively heteronormative and "macho" culture. Indeed, Basotho men have long possessed a reputation in southern Africa for being among the fiercest gangsters, toughest workers, and most incorrigible womanizers of all the African peoples of the region. In 1907 an official enquiry into "unnatural vice" at the South ...

In March, 1993, Hajj Mustapha Tabit was arrested in Morocco for abusing his power as a police commissioner by abducting and sexually assaulting hundreds of women over a period of thirteen years. The reaction in the local Moroccan press is examined here, demonstrating a structure of discourse that blamed female ...
Inhorn, Marcia - - 2002
In Africa, high rates of infertility are due to infection and many other factors. This article explores male sexual dysfunction as both a cause and consequence of infertility in Egypt. Because sexual dysfunction is profoundly emasculating in a country where hegemonic masculinities are competitive, sexually troubled men in childless marriages ...
Agadjanian, Victor - - 2002
Gender inequality in sub-Saharan urban settings is perpetuated through the differences in men's and women's positions in the labor market. However, rising unemployment and increasing informalization of the economy that result from both the demographic structure and the structural adjustment reforms undermine men's economic advantage by pushing them into low-income ...
Morrell, Robert - - 2002
In the last decade, South Africa has undergone a major political transformation. The ending of apartheid and the installation of a democratically elected, black majority government has had major implications for gender policy and gender relations in the country. This paper examines how men collectively have responded to these changes. ...
Goldsmith, Meredith - - 2002
This essay analyzes the dilemma of black male South African intellectuals of the 1950s, of whom autobiographer Bloke Modisane was a pivotal example. Exiled in the aftermath of the harsh apartheid laws of the 1960s, these artists were trapped on a precarious divide between the white artistic world and the ...
Magubane, Zine - - 2002
This paper argues that the discovery of diamonds in South Africa in the late nineteenth century facilitated the rapid growth of Kimberley as an urban center where black and white males were forced into close and unpredictable proximity, and where they forged relationships that alternated between mutual cooperation and dependence ...
Saint-Aubin, Arthur - - 2002
Science, as it developed in Europe and the U.S. during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, set out to capture, to describe, and to catalogue what was considered the "natural" black male body. Scientists succeeded not merely in describing such a body but, in effect, in producing this body and therein ...

I examine these narratives as cultural expressions that implicitly ...

The H.I.S. (History, Identity, and Spirituality) model is a three-step approach to working with African-American men. Information from both the Biopsychosocial and the Affirmation models forms the basis of the H.I.S. model. However, this conceptual framework takes on a more holistic approach, incorporating universal concepts that are essential to effective ...
Hawkins, Alan - - 2002
As the study of fathering has matured in recent years, fathering scholars have recognized the need for richer, broader measures of the construct of father involvement (Hawkins & Palkovitz, 1999). In an effort to create a measure sensitive to affective, cognitive, and direct and indirect behavioral components of involvement, 100 ...
Johnson, Martin - - 2002

This paper addresses the reluctance of scholars who study the Holocaust professionally to acknowledge insights from the burgeoning discipline of men's studies. In recent years the scholarly study of masculinity has exploded among anthropologists, psychologists, sociologists, and scholars of religion. The perspectives animating this "new men's studies" appear to be ...
Drummond, Murray - - 2002

George, M. - - 2002
Historical sources and their analysis in academic literature establish that intimate violence has been a cause for concern stemming from at least England's medieval times. While men-as-perpetrators of violence on wives or female partners could be prosecuted or subject to public exposure, ironically men-as-victims of their wives' violence were subject ...
Blazina, Christopher - - 2001
The difficulties men have with intimacy issues are documented within clinical lore as well as a growing body of empirical research. This paper traces these difficulties to the disidentification process and suggests that there are some specific ways in which this emotionally traumatic process manifests itself. This is expounded upon ...
Wade, Jay - - 2001
This study examined adult men's attitudes toward race and gender equity and their sexual harassment proclivities in relation to male identity status and traditional masculinity ideology.

Hart, Kylo-Patrick - - 2001
This study investigates how presenting the same factual content with varying narrators, as required by harder- versus softer-news formats, influences the way readers perceive the gay male subject of an actual news story. Because previous social-psychological findings have suggested that people typically respond to others first as members of distinct ...
Floyd, Kory - - 2001
The present study examines the communication of affection in men's relationships with their fathers and with their sons. Drawing from affection exchange theory and contemporary theorizing about fatherhood, three predictions are advanced: 1) heterosexual men receive more affection from their fathers than do homosexual or bisexual men; 2) fathers communicate ...
Beggan, James - - 2001
Although the literature on mate preferences indicates that women prefer men with both stereotypic masculine traits, such as strength and assertiveness, and stereotypic feminine traits, such as nurturance and sensitivity, men are encouraged to adopt identities that include only stereotypic masculine traits. This discrepancy produces gender-based role strain for men ...
HALKITIS, PERRY - - 2001
An ethnographic investigation was undertaken to explore the social construct of masculinity. Fifteen HIV seropositive gay men in New York City were interviewed via electronic medium in order to characterize behaviors and associated meanings attached to the conception of masculinity as physicality. Structured interviews were utilized to ascertain these data ...
ROBERTSON, JOHN - - 2001
The purpose of this study was to explore possible associations between two variables of the male experience: what men report about their emotions, and what they actually experience physiologically. Men from traditionally male occupations (N = 69) were presented with three emotion-inducing stressors (i.e., a video, a math test, and ...

Drinking cultures are the means by which men negotiate masculinities in leisure activities. This exploratory article examines similarities and differences between two American male drinking subcultures--the fraternity and the U.S. Navy. It shows that in their leisure alcohol use, men negotiate subordinate and dominant masculinities within real-life everyday experiences of ...
BEGGAN, JAMES - - 2001
Images presented in the mass media often contain subtexts that perpetuate gender stereotypes. We suggest that in some instances, underlying messages in mass media can operate to oppose, rather than reinforce, gender stereotypes. To examine this hypothesis, we used the first ten years of Playboy magazine as our data source. ...
GOLDRICK-JONES, AMANDA - - 2001
Has men's anti-sexist or profeminist activism been following "a path from optimism to pessimism," as Lynne Segal claims? An examination of documents produced by profeminist groups in North America and Britain suggests that "crisis" (a state of change) may be a more helpful description of profeminism today. Within these documents, ...
PHILARETOU, ANDREAS - - 2001
This paper attempts to synthesize general issues pertaining to masculinity and male sexuality using essentialist and postmodern theoretical ideologies. According to essentialist ideologies, the construction of male gender requires one's molding into a masculine role, which presupposes autonomy, competition, and aggressiveness, and the suppression of the innate human needs for ...
CLARK, J. - - 2001
An all-women's college could provide the perfect opportunity to address two important issues: to develop an additional model for teaching men's studies within undergraduate religious studies and to facilitate a collective women's response to profeminist men's studies. To accomplish both these tasks, we piloted a new course at Agnes Scott ...
BLAZINA, CHRISTOPHER - - 2001

Rather than experiencing manly fulfillment through rank and status, black ...
MIGLIACCIO, TODD - - 2001
Being marginalized in Western society involves denial of access to resources, inability to assume a dominant identity, and the perception by others as a deviant. For marginalized men in American society, their deviant status can result in others' questioning their masculinity. Fearing emasculation, many men attempt to hide or deny ...
BLOCH, ENID - - 2001
For most of the past two thousand years no one would discuss Greek pederasty directly, and the innumerable references in ancient literature to erotic relationships between men and boys were ignored or suppressed. This situation has changed in recent years with the publication of important books about sexuality in the ...

GODDARD, KEVIN - - 2000
The paper examines the influence of the "female gaze" on the construction of masculinity. It attempts to show masculine identity cannot be interpreted separate from the image of men projected by, or perceived to be projected by, women. Using examples from literature, popular culture, and gender theory, the paper argues ...
BEGGAN, JAMES - - 2000
Recent accounts of the contact hypothesis have stressed the cognitive aspects of the phenomenon. On the basis of this call for reformulation, we propose the existence of the advisor hypothesis, i.e., the idea that third parties can use their influence to inhibit stereotyping about in-group and out-group members. We conducted ...
KANN, MARK - - 2000
This article examines three reasons for ongoing tensions between men's studies and women's studies. First, women's studies scholars claim a privileged place in gender studies.
