Based on eighteen months of fieldwork in a racially diverse working-class high school, Dude, Youre a Fag sheds new light on masculinity both as a field of meaning and as a set of social practices.

C. J. Pascoes 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.
