Muscularity, Mateship and Malevolent Masculinities: Experiences of Young Men with Hearing Disabilities in Secondary Schools

Loeser, Cassandra,

Academic Literature

2010

Across the analysis of interview fragments from two young men with hearing disabilities who attended secondary schools in Australia, this paper will demonstrate that masculinity in the schoolyard frequently emerges within and as a collective form of violence and malevolence against the disabled body. Yet while certain individuals or groups may constitute them as ‘Other’, the young men themselves do not believe that because they have a hearing disability, they are ‘abnormal’ or should tolerate acts of violence against their being.
