Homosocial Spaces

๐ŸŒƒ are โ€œ๐ŸŽฏ ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ˜โ€ where single, ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿ‘ซ men can โ€œ๐Ÿนโ€ for single ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿ‘ซ for casual ๐Ÿ†๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ฆ (221). Within the ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿนโ€”which is inherently ๐Ÿ’‘โ€”๐Ÿ‘ฌ activity plays a ๐Ÿ”‘ role. For instance, in the ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿน, men ๐ŸŽฅ ๐Ÿ˜ rituals, which are then ๐Ÿ‘จโ€โš–๏ธ . Thus, these ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿ‘ซ operate ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿ‘จ, creating a ๐Ÿ‘ฌ environment in which ๐Ÿ’ช is managed by other ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿ‘ซ. Why do the ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿ‘ซ in the ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿน๐Ÿ“„ differ from the ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿ‘ซ in the ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ“„ (e.g., based on their ๐Ÿค of the ๐Ÿ‘ฌ culture of their respective activity)? Why is it that ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿ‘ซ who participate in acts of physical ๐Ÿ’“ (i.e, ๐Ÿ‘) are more willing to ๐Ÿคthe ๐Ÿ‘ฌ activity than the ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿ‘ซ involved in the ๐Ÿ‘ฉ ๐Ÿน ๐Ÿ“„? Why do the ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿ‘ซ in the ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿน๐Ÿ“„ use their end ๐Ÿฅ… of compulsory ๐Ÿ’‘ in order to undermine and render the ๐Ÿ‘ฌ spaces that are ๐Ÿ”‘ to the ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿน unimportant?
