For a More Intersectional Discussion of Disabled Masculinity

During our ? on ♿ ?, we ? about the tension between ? of ♿ ? (weak, passive, dependent) and dominant ? (strong, aggressive, independent). I was left wishing we had talked more ? about how ideas of manhood with respect to race, ?, gender, etc. impact ♿ ?. For example, ??? face stereotypes of hyper?,  and some ? ? about how this is true of ♿???, who are viewed as “sexual menaces” (Jarman, 2012). As a result, they can face ? consequences like forced sterilization or sexual ❌. This complicates the more simplistic understanding that?s of ♿ ? are at odds with ?s of ?. Notions of ♿ and manhood may impact ? differently along dimensions of other identities, such as race.
