Male Team Sport Hazing Initiations in a Culture of Decreasing Homohysteria
Anderson, Eric; McCormack, Mark; Lee, Harry
Journal of Adolescent Research, v27 n4 p427-448 Jul 2012
In this longitudinal ethnographic research, we report on 7 years of hazing rituals on two separate men's sports teams at one university in the United Kingdom. Using 38 in-depth interviews alongside naturalistic observations of the initiation rituals, we demonstrate that hazing activities have changed from being centered around homophobic same-sex activities to focusing on extreme levels of alcohol consumption. We show that whereas same-sex activities once occurred paradoxically to prohibit them, today these initiations open up the possibility of same-sex behaviors for young men in the life stage of emergent adulthood.
