Masculinism and the Gender-Caste System

Here are works and links dealing with issues of gender, sexuality and sexual orientation, the social construction of masculinity and various gender identities, and the unified gender-caste social semiotic system in which these matters and issues of ethnic-racial, social class, and age grade diversity are interconnected.

Masculinism and Academic Discourse -- this TextWeb also contains a preview of the analysis of the gender-caste system in terms of variation in degree for the traits defining each dimension of the system, and their interdependence.
