And this time they’re right - expect for the nonsense that they attach to that finding - back in the day, I worked the door at a men’s shelter in Bristol. Those guys are fucking savages.As if the homeless didn’t have enough going against them, now, it turns out, the bastards engage in “compensatory masculinity,”..
I refer to a chapter in a new book that was written by Erin Dej, a criminologist at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ont.
Dej’s chapter is called When a Man’s Home Isn’t a Castle: Hegemonic Masculinity Among Men Experiencing Homelessness and Mental Illness.
Her conclusion is that while homeless men are denied the usual range of hypermasculine rewards (a house, a job, power, etc.) such are the benefits of “the patriarchal dividend” that they nonetheless “perform masculinity” and behave in the few hypermasculine ways that remain open to them.
