Masculine Status, Sexual Performance, and the Sexual Stigmatization of Women by Brian N. Sweeney out on Early View

Relationships between the sexes on campus is topic that has been at the center of public debate for decades and probably will be for the time to come. Over the past year or so, the New York Times run a number of articles concerned with “The Dating World of Tomorrow“, “The End of Courtship?“,  conversations about sex on campus, and many others. A common theme of these and related debates is the role of masculinity in college and the assumption that in college fraternities male students may sexually stigmatise their female colleagues. Brian N. Sweeny’s article that has just been published on Early View of Symbolic Interaction is based on a study that explores the role of masculinity and peer relationships in fraternity members’ attitude toward female students. 

The abstract and article can be found here.
