Gender Roles in Country Music
Transcript of Gender Roles in Country Music
Depicts a very rigid in definition of manhood
(Objectify women, fight male competition, use guns)
Tells audience what constitutes un-manliness*
(Having a small dog, manicure, pedicure, fashionable)
*In this particular instance -- specifically indicating that men who pay too much attention to appearance are lacking the sex organs that literally make a man male (emasculation, negative reinforcement of behavior) as such men "don't have a pair" <---------- Evaluation Sample 1 "Tough Little Boys”
Initially describes expected behaviors for men
(Fighting bullies, not crying, strength)
Discusses father’s emotional connection to children
(Being scared, crying, protecting, worrying)
While this song acknowledges a man's emotions about a his daughters, it also notes that such emotions are kept hidden at all times, even from said daughters. "I don't highlight my hair...I still have a pair. Honey, I'm still a guy." "I know one day I'll give you away, and
I'm gonna smile, but when I get home, and
I'm alone, I'll sit your room for a while." <---------- Sample 2, "I'm Still A Guy" does offer evidence of supporting and reinforcing masculine hetero-normalcy. Sample 1, "Tought Little Boys" offers a partial support my thesis. This song of reinforces masculine hetero-normalcy, and also offers the idea of male emotions, which are usually aligned with representations of femininity. <---------- <----------
