Masculinity Performativity

Dolce-Gabbana-Ad-Sexist.jpg


"Bodies are involved more actively, more intimately, and more intricately in social processes than theory has
usually allowed. Bodies participate in social action by delineating courses of social
conduct—the body is a participant in generating social practice. It is important not
only that masculinities be understood as embodied but also that the interweaving of
embodiment and social context be addressed." (Connell, Messerschmidt 851)
