Great HalloweenHJB 2005-07-23 11:27

Interesting idea. Archetti has studied the machismo and homophobia of Argentine soccer (football) and how the crowd mentality of men fighting against other men always seems to come down to a question of "manliness". It is fascinating to hear the chants that try to turn the opposing team's players into "females" who are to be sodomized by the home team's phalluses.

Thanks for giving me something to think about. Saludos, Herbert

Default To HalloweenHJB: machismo

Hi Herbert,
I guess machismo has many different origins. On the one hand you have the traditional latin machismo brought by the spanish and on the other hand the brutal machismo practised by the indians. In any case what you mentioned is interestign, as an online peruvian forum about gay marriage on Spain you saw all kinds of stupid comments. One guy made a really good point: He said that in Peruvian culture, the male values are reinforced by homophobia, and it seems the more homophobic you are the more macho you are.
