Man eller mes? : om sju unga killars syn på manlighet

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Socialhögskolan

Sammanfattning: The purpose of this assignment was to illuminate what some young boys consider as manliness, which male role models they have and how they look upon their future as men. Central questions were how they look upon manliness, how a man should be, how they want to be as young boys and grown men and which male role models they have. I have used a qualitative method; I have been interviewing seven boys between the age of fourteen and sixteen. Some of them thought that it is masculine to do sports and that it's positive to be big and strong as a man. Male qualities are to be responsible, help other people, show respect and dare to give their opinion about something. They thought that a man who is unmanly is probably a coward, gay or that he acts like a woman. Important role models were their dad, older brother and sports-, music- and movie stars. Most of them want to get a family and children when they are grown and for example they want to work as an engineer, master mariner, waiter or in the national defence.
