Bromance

๐Ÿšน engage in ๐Ÿ‘ฌ relations as a central part to their ๐Ÿ’ช which may seem counterintuitive to how we typically consider ๐Ÿšน as focusing on ๐Ÿšบ.

Is โ€œgirl huntingโ€ really focused on hooking up ๐Ÿšบ or is it just another activity that ๐Ÿšน can bond over? How central are ๐Ÿšบ to this activity?

Regardless of how ๐Ÿšบ react to being โ€œhunted,โ€ ๐Ÿšน bond over the activity and as a result have a heightened sense of ๐Ÿ’ช.

The way ๐Ÿšน act towards ๐Ÿšบโ€•both ignoring them and objectifying themโ€•are central to ๐Ÿ‘ฌ relations and reproduce systems of โš–. ย 

Male-dominated spaces allow ๐Ÿšน to strengthen their sense of ๐Ÿ’ช. Why is there no fear of ๐Ÿ‘ฅ in these spaces?

 

๐Ÿ‘ฌ – homosocial

๐Ÿ’ช – masculinity

๐Ÿšน – men

๐Ÿšบ – women

โš– – inequality

๐Ÿ‘ฅ – homophobia

The Dilemma of Disabled Masculinity

๐Ÿ‘ทย are seen as traditionally masculine because they rely on their ๐Ÿ’ช for work unlike in men in ๐Ÿ™.

 

๐Ÿ‘ท are often limited to physical jobs because they lack ๐ŸŽ“ and therefore cannot easily acquire ๐Ÿ‘”s as a backup if they become disabled.

 

๐Ÿ‘ท with an โ™ฟ are increasingly able to seek alternative employment with greater ease through ๐Ÿ’ป or going back to school to seek ๐ŸŽ“.

 

Stigma is increasing for ๐Ÿ‘ท who claim disability because of a new ease of acquiring ๐ŸŽ“, ๐Ÿ’ป or at an ๐Ÿ‘” because of industrialization.

 

Acquiring a โ™ฟ is not only an ๐Ÿ˜ซ for ๐Ÿ‘ท regarding employmentโ€•their culture also includes masculine, physical activities like ๐Ÿ”ซ and ๐ŸŽฃ.
