Example text

Gender socialization occurs according to categories of masculine or feminine, which correspond to a male or female identity. Yet all people, regardless of sex and sexual orientation, experience gender as a continuum, in many configurations, rather than as discrete categories (Butler 1990). A heterosexual orientation is implicit in gender socialization—that is, people learn to embody and perform masculinity and femininity based on the normative heterosexual versions of these categories. Not all individuals experience their gender identity and sexual orientation in normative ways, however.

As Patrick’s comment demonstrates, his friendship with Emily allows him to discuss feelings of inadequacy without threatening his claims to hegemonic masculinity, as might occur in friendships with men in which he would not want to lose face by admitting insecurity. This is also consistent with Rumens’s (2008) finding that in gendered work hierarchies, gay men are more comfortable confiding in straight women than in other men, which often leads to the development of close friendships (although in this case, the sexual orientation of the parties is reversed).

Of particular significance to both friends was Emily’s marriage/ commitment ceremony to Stacy. Patrick felt honored when Emily and Stacy took him and his wife, Joanne, to dinner to announce their engagement, and Emily was impressed that Patrick and his family attended the entire weekend wedding celebration. The occasion allowed the friends to show how much esteem they had for each other and to introduce Emily’s biological brother to her chosen brother, Patrick. Thus, the bond between Emily and Patrick also illustrates how intersectional friendships often serve as chosen family members, celebrating birthdays and holidays together, a topic that is discussed at greater length in chapter 3.
