Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, & Harris Interactive. (). From teasing to torment: School climate in America, a survey of students and teachers. New York: Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. Google Scholar.   In the book Dude, You’re a Fag, C.J. Pascoe writes about the way the word is used among high school students in relation to masculinity and sexuality. According to the students Pascoe interviews, the word “fag” only applies to guys and is used for almost anything: “Like you were trying to turn a wrench the wrong way, ‘Dude, you’re a.

  This study helps to understand the masculinity culture of highschool behaviors and how homosexuality fits into the hallways of a secondary school experience. Pascoe thoroughly analyzes different groups of students and their perceptions of gay individuals amongst their hallways.   The school has several gay awareness programs that make it look “good on paper,” Mr. Marshall said, yet “the real challenge is changing the hearts and minds of students.”.

The word ‘fag’ signifies a fluid identity that labels the wearer as unmasculine rather than homosexual. In fact, many of the students Pascoe speak to insist that ‘gay’ shares no connection with ‘fag.’ Thus, a boy identifying as gay could still be masculine and escape the fag identity.   However, students at the same school today will experience the same phrase very differently (McCormack, a). The point is that the phrase “that's so gay” is not necessarily homophobic, nor does it have to be part of gay discourse—the categorization of language will depend on the cultural context.

Hidden curriculum often refers to knowledge gained in primary and secondary school settings, usually with a negative. Through interviews with 20 teenage boys at two high schools, the author examines the ways in which boys from different school subcultures engage with the most dominantly masculine of the school's peer groups—the Jocks.

The author investigates how boys from less “masculine” groups maintain a sense of self as masculine. I was gay at school, so I had a lovely time. My school [Stowe] was tolerant, too - they didn't follow you about trying to catch you in flagrante. I rather enjoyed it all. (Many good resources are available for self-education on this topic, including an article titled The Ideology of "fag": The school experience of gay students, by George W.
