The Declining Significance of Homophobia

Mark McCormack

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses how to theorize the unequal social stratification of men in society. Hegemonic masculinity theory has traditionally been used to conceptualize the hierarchy of men, but the chapter explicates the inadequacies of this theory to explain changes in how men act in recent years. Highlighting the differences between hegemony and hegemonic masculinity, the chapter turns to inclusive masculinity theory as the most useful way of understanding masculinities in contemporary society.

Keywords:   inclusive, hegemonic, masculinity, theory, hegemony
