The two concepts that fit best to explain the problem in this study are Hegemonic Masculinity and Behavioral Mimicry. Hegemonic Masculinity delineates the “real men” value in a patriarchal culture, dictated through masculine gender roles such as strength, aggresion, or dominance. Masculinity then becomes a preferable identity inside rock subculture, a nod to the hierarchial concept of identity as explained by Adams and Dickey (2000). This identity hierarchy results in women’s inferior position that further acts as a motivation for women to adhere to masculinity as their ideal role. Further, Behavioral Mimicry concept delineates the process to adapt to masculinity.
An effective government needs to establish and consistently maintain absolute authority for the safety the commonwealth, in so doing, the safety of the sovereign. If each individual is to decide for themselves whether to obey the government or not, uprisings and resistance against the government will occur, resulting in dissenting disagreements and civil war. Secondly, what is said to be actions of “goodness” and what is said to be actions of “evil”, are legislated by the civil law, who is representative of the Commonwealth. Hence, if every private individual was to be his own judge of what is good and evil, debates and disputes would arise concerning what the sovereign has decreed regarding actions in the prior regards. The commonwealth would thus be distracted and
This is because researchers have different point of views, regarding how much of gender is due to biological and evolutionary factors (nature), or, they claim, that it might be the result of the person’s culture and their socialisation (nurture). Feminists note the ways in which a woman is different from a man; they stress the biological and cultural differences between genders. They also often reverse the dominant patriarchal values of a man by showing preferences to women’s qualities and their competencies over a man’s. Furthermore, a person’s gender identity is their own personal account of their gender. It is the degree to which a person identifies as a male, female, or any other
As explained in the research of Grimell (2017), the military culture forces the individual into a position where they must redefine who it is they are. Moreover, this “who I am” military story creates a strong identity within the individual that is often in opposition to the characteristics of the experiential being as a “civilian” (Grimell, 2017, p. 833). This positioning of the dialogical self, forces the questions of DST to become existential in nature. Specifically, these existential questions present as a crisis, or a process, of adaption from the rigidity of military identity to becoming “who
According to Pleck (1995) masculinity is being referred to, sets of culturally defined principles of masculinity to which men are expected to hold on (Pleck, 1995). Support of the traditional male roles and norms by individuals, groups and society referred to as the masculinity ideology (Levant, 1995). Thompson and Pleck (1986) noted that a particular collection of dimensions upon which some individuals base their notion of masculinity is masculinity philosophy. However, these dimensions are defined as toughness (in the physical as well as the mental and emotional sense), norms related to status and, finally, the anti-femininity norm. While the dimension of toughness refers to the prospect that men need to be strong, experienced and capable of solving their emotional problems in an appropriate way, the status dimension is defined as labour, economic and professional success, and it is generally associated with a high income (Thompson & Pleck,
This is crucial since the army officers put their life on the line to ensure the safety of the nation’s and its citizen’s. Furthermore, personal defence of an army officer should be exercise at utmost capability in exchange of unbiased and bloodstained legal decision regarding disagreement among the officers. ‘Honour crime’ was fundamental if the progress be made out of blood-shed to legal verdict and lawful encounter ought to substitute physical clash. In theory, anything considered as ungentlemanly regime and may be use as advantageous method of disposing disliked military officers. Other than that, definite characterization of behaviour may obliterate along the way of reconciling disagreement regarding cowardice and personality aspersion.
‘Hegemony’ is defined by Rosamond as “The dominance of one group over another, often supported by legitimating norms and ideas” (2007). This essay will first look at the denotation of the image. Then addressing the subjects of race, class and gender individually, examining the ideological hegemony with regards to each of these points. This essay will also look at the counter-argument that this advert has been misrepresented, this essay will display the merits of this claim but its inherent failure to justify the release of the advert in the first place. “Denotation is the primary meaning that we give a word or an image.
As summarized by Max Weber, a state is one that claims monopoly on the legitimated use of force within a given territory. Although monopoly may be claimed on the use of force, a consensus of the people is necessary to maintain power, since that contributes to effective governance. In the case of a fragile state experiencing illegitimacy,
Authority is the legal use of power as people obey someone because they think it is the right thing to do; not because of any other reason. On the other hand, the work describes coercion as forcing people into action, often by threat of violence, and this form is always illegitimate (Weber, 1988 ). The form of power as coercion is at display in the trilogy where President Snow and the Capitol arrange the games, the arenas, and the artificial environment just to put people into something they will willingly say no to. This notion is explained in Sennett’s point of view about power, which is completely in contrast with Weber’s. He argues that authority does not need to be something legitimate in the eyes of the population.
Masculinity is what men do rather than what or how they are. To be considered male, men must enact culturally accepted male roles or rather perform masculinity scripts. By doing so, they become agents that actively construct gender. Gender is constructed through complex interactions between men and women. Men and women contribute to the maintenance of the status quo by reenacting gender roles that they acquired through socialization.
