"If You Don't Kiss Me, You're Dumped": Boys, Boyfriends and Heterosexualized Masculinities in the Primary School.
Renold, Emma
Educational Review, v55 n2 p179-94 Jun 2003
An ethnographic study of 10-11 year-old boys' construction of gender and sexual identities illustrates the complex and contradictory aspects of heterosexuality. The study suggests how boys define their heterosexualities through projections of fantasies, imagined futures, misogynistic objectification of females, and homophobic performances.
