Abstract

The pedagogy emerging with Women's Studies is a method that sociologists can use to teach men about the effect of sexism on their lives. Teaching men about gender in general and masculinity in particular is most effective when a feminist perspective is used to develop a tactics of engagement. An argument is made for requiring students to understand the role homophobia plays in maintaining masculine stereotypes as well as the interdependency of female and male roles. Separate courses on men and masculinity are critiqued for their validity.
