Homosexual Masculinities in Canada

Homosexual masculinities in Canada are the kinds of men that are once perceived as subordinates. As perceived, they were successful in achieving their masculinity and manhood, they were bound to be part of cultural dynamics, in which, the society allow them to be part of ‘normal’ group and operates the way female gender usually do in relationships between men and women. Some say that they are ‘culturally exalted’ which expressed that they are valuable, acceptable, dominant, and equate to the society. The relationship between masculinities and subordinates do not measure the equality of hegemony. Even though, the hegemonic heterosexual masculinity group has oppressed the homosexual men for devaluing manhood and dominating the ultrafemininity ways for the betterment of hegemony and complicity. Thus, these views of marginalization on homosexual men are of less of importance, and are of relegating to a secondary position and are of innocence of committing a crime. Therefore, marginalized, both groups with a background do not acquire an education on cultural difference, racialism, and sovereignty. In addition, this complements the idea of how homosexual black men of Canada have been intimidated through their socioeconomic class, power of success, and geographical location within dominant group and how Blacks of Canada are not able to mainstream their sovereign individuality, in despite of cultural differences with different socioeconomic class levels, they are dominating the society. An underestimating power between groups on dominating success in their careers has revealed that homosexual men intimidated the hegemonic heterosexual men by overpowering their character in power of success.

Hegemonic Masculinity is not Hegemonic- Michael Robidoux

Hegemony, per se, relates to the assumption of masculinity through the distinction of command. Most likely, this stature of men being able to control themselves and the society around them has been coined in relation to the culture of imperialism that England has introduced to the world. Relatively, this has created a direct implication of what manhood is all about and how masculinity is recognized in areas that England has greatly affected during the years of imperialism.

Gender Socialization for Boys is More Risky

According to Gilles Tremblay and Pierre L’heureux (2009) in their work Genesis of the Construction of the Male Identity, gender socialization for boys is more risky. This was articulated from the sense that boys lack adequate male role models. The analysts cited adult male insecurity in identifying men who are reluctant to seek help when it is needed, because they are ashamed. Male chauvinism pushes them from revealing their true emotional identity. Subsequently, they are socialized into hiding emotions, thinking that true expression of their fears is femininity since only girls cry. This is told to them even by their mothers and fathers when they are present in the homes (Laker, 2009).

An Examination of Karen Walker’s Research

The article discusses the differences in men and women and how they make friendships.  In addition to gender itself, the two groups that were examined were people who could be considered working class as opposed to people who could be considered as middle-class.  Walker’s research was done in 1994 and some of her data was dated as early as 1985. I submit that in the years that have passed (more or less, two decades) regardless of gender, the gap has shrunk between those individuals who were considered middle-class and those who were thought of as working class. Two occurrences lead me to this conclusion: First, women who were once stay-at-home moms and wives now need to join their husbands in the labor force in order to make ends meet. Second, jobs that were once offered more so to one gender than another are now offered to both genders. Examples include male nurses when in yesteryear these positions were almost totally female-based. Likewise, uniformed police officers are now found in all communities while at an earlier date these positions were almost totally filled by males.
