Homophobic Discourse Surrounding the Female Athlete.
Veri, Maria J.
Quest, v51 n4 p355-68 Nov 1999
Considers constructs and operation of homophobic discourse surrounding female athletes, employing Foucauldian notions of discipline and discourse and feminist critiques of the gendered body to depict female athletes as nonconformist to the discipline of femininity. The paper argues that homophobic discourse exists in response to this nonconformity and objectifies and subjectifies sporting women, noting how to diminish the oppressive discourse. (SM)
