In The Game Discussion Questions Anderson claims that contemporary institutions of sport in the United States produce and sustain a homophobic and conservative gender ideology despite the fact that cultural homophobia has declined considerably in the United States over the last two decades. What evidence does Anderson provide to support his claim about a decline in cultural homophobia? According to Anderson, what specific characteristics of sporting institutions keep them “behind the times” with respect to homophobia and gender ideology? Anderson describes sport as a masculinizing institution. What does he mean by this? He describes sport as advancing a culturally hegemonic version of masculinity that devalues women and stigmatizes homosexuality.

What are the attractions and detractions to sport participation among gay men according to Anderson? Are you persuaded by his account?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
