Dr. Robin Valeri, professor of psychology, and Dr. Kevin Borgeson, associate professor of criminal justice, Salem State University, had a chapter titled "Masculine Identities within the Skinhead Movement: How Straight Men, Gay Men, and Women Embody and Perform Masculinity in a Culture of Traditional Masculinity," published in Advances in Sociology Research: Vol. 19,(pp. 39-58).
Using qualitative research methods and interviews, the chapter explores masculinities within the skinhead movement. Specifically this chapter examines how three sub-groups of skinheads, heterosexual men, gay men, and women each define and live masculinity within a culture that espouses a traditional hegemonic definition of masculinity. Skinheads present a tough, hard “don’t mess with me” image and a culture that promotes drinking, fighting, slam dancing, and the attributes of aggressiveness, competitiveness, restricted emotions, and limited affectionate behavior between men that are associated with traditional masculinity. Drawing on information from their online communications as well interviews with member of each of these subgroups, we will compare and contrast the extent to which each group embraces the traditional hegemonic masculinity associated with the skinhead movement in relation to skinhead identity, ideology and culture and examine how members of each of these groups, as they interact with other skinheads, embody, interpret, and perform some attributes of traditional masculinity while distancing themselves from others.
