Masculinist method: a cautionary tale

Masculinist method: a cautionary tale Purpose– This is a cautionary tale. In previous research on male-to-female transsexuals, the author's analysis was too knowing, detached, and full of authorial superiority. In other words, it was too masculine. The paper aims to discuss theses issues. Design/methodology/approach– In this paper, the author brings to the fore the deleterious effects of the masculinist method. The author then writes a palinode in order to allow masculinity and male to be performed and un/tethered differently by and on different bodies and different subjects. Findings– The paper concludes with a discussion of how a masculinist method emerged and its consequences. Originality/value– This is a revised look at the author's previous work on the subject. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Qualitative Research Journal Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose– This is a cautionary tale. In previous research on male-to-female transsexuals, the author's analysis was too knowing, detached, and full of authorial superiority. In other words, it was too masculine. The paper aims to discuss theses issues. Design/methodology/approach– In this paper, the author brings to the fore the deleterious effects of the masculinist method. The author then writes a palinode in order to allow masculinity and male to be performed and un/tethered differently by and on different bodies and different subjects. Findings– The paper concludes with a discussion of how a masculinist method emerged and its consequences. Originality/value– This is a revised look at the author's previous work on the subject.
