Publisher's Summary

High school and the difficult terrain of sexuality and gender identity are brilliantly explored in this smart, incisive ethnography. Based on 18 months of fieldwork in a racially diverse working-class high school, Dude, You're a Fag sheds new light on masculinity both as a field of meaning and as a set of social practices. 

C. J. Pascoe's unorthodox approach analyzes masculinity as not only a gendered process, but also a sexual one. She demonstrates how the "specter of the fag" becomes a disciplinary mechanism for regulating heterosexual, as well as homosexual boys and how the "fag discourse" is as much tied to gender as it is to sexuality.
