Fighting Boys and Fantasy Play: The Construction of Masculinity in the Early Years of School.
Jordon, Ellen
Gender and Education, v7 n1 p69-86 Mar 1995
Analyzes how young boys adopt a definition of masculinity as avoiding whatever is done by girls, and explains the notion of "fighting boys" behavior and how this understanding of masculinity leads to scorn and rejection towards girls as a group. Teachers are encouraged to teach that "fighting boys" behavior is not equated with classroom or playground behavior. (GR)
