From Sexism to Homophobia

Masculinity as Homophobia: men’s fear of not being “men” enough; the attempt of keeping distance from any effeminate behavior

Definition of Homophobia: “Homophobia is more than the irrational fear of gay men, more than the fact that we might be perceived as gay…. Homophobia is the fear that other men will unmask us, emasculate us, reveal to us and the world that we do not measure up, that we are not real men. We are afraid to let other men see that fear”

Kimmel, Michael S., in Rothenberg, 2004: 88.
