During the year of Jackson’s presidential election, the Workies, which consisted of working men, wanted to protect individuals who earned money from arduous labor, but failed to make payments punctually.

Since the division of America into its Northern and Southern territories, America was in a feud with its self over which side was superior. This feud carried itself over to the economic stability of each territory. Northerner Hinton Rowan once wrote, “the South bears nothing like even a respectable approximation to the North in navigation, commerce, or manufactures, and that, contrary to the opinion entertained by ninety-nine hundredths of her people, she is far behind the free states in the only thing of which she has ever dared to boast- agriculture.” In response to Rowan, Southerner George Fitzhugh claimed that southern society was not as far behind as the North believed.

The Jacksonian Era was the time period of Andrew Jackson’s presidency. This began in 1828 when Jackson was elected president. The era is sometimes described as a time when the United States experienced the “democratization of politics.” In a democracy every citizen has an equal say in the government's decisions and actions. Some people of this time period believed that Jackson is notable for democratizing the United States during the Jacksonian Era.

The Philosopher King come from the Greek word philosophia which mean “Love or wisdom.” A Philosopher King would be someone that has a special level of knowledge.

Throughout this sociological investigation, the notion of ’’masculinity’’ will be explored, examined and dissected as well as the concept and the idea of what it means to be a man in the eyes of an individual themselves as well as society as a whole. One may note that this investigation will intertwine and relate to the woks of Lorber (1996), Connell (1995) as well as various other pieces of academic literature and research. It is evident to note that further research has been done in the form of a one-on-one live interaction with a Mr Andrew James. This interview will explore the paradigms of what it means to be a man and what is considered to be masculine from the view point of a heterosexual male and thus illustrating the stereotypical thoughts that are associated with what a man ‘’should be.’’ Before one starts to explore to notion of masculinity and what is meant be the term man, one first needs to differentiate and find a distinction between the notion of sex and gender.

After a fiercely fought revolution, the newly independent American nation struggled to establish a concrete government amidst an influx of opposing ideologies. Loosely tied together by the Articles of Confederation, the thirteen sovereign states were far from united. As growing schisms in American society became apparent, an array of esteemed, prominent American men united in 1787 to form the basis of the United States government: the Constitution. Among the most eminent members of this convention were Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr, James Madison, and Thomas Jefferson. These men, held to an almost godly stature, defined the future of the nation; but were their intentions as honest as they seemed?

Individuals are consistently pressured by gender expectations within societies, predominantly in rural towns during the 1960’s. Silvey’s utilisation of characterisation and point of view of Charlie Bucktin presents the traditional gender roles in Jasper Jones, set in Australia during the 1960’s. As Charlie prepares himself to set foot on a journey with Jasper Jones, he noted his appearances and display of femininity: “…the application of pansy footwear, is my first display of girlishness… I jog back with as much masculinity as I can muster, which even in the moonlight must resemble something of an arthritic chicken.” This excerpt shows that Charlie is challenged by Corrigan’s gender expectation of masculinity.
Discourses have far reaching effect on how we as humans discuss and experience our bodies. The discourse of normalcy has produced a socially constructed body that either fits or deviates from the socially constructed norm. This results in categorization and stigmatization of individuals based on whether they have more “normal” or “abnormal” traits.

The discourse of gender tightly regulates how and when males and females discuss their bodies.
