Making Chinese-Canadian masculinities in Vancouver’s physical education curriculum handout Thesis: Canadian individuals in society manifest ideologies that white males are superior both physically and culturally to Chinese males because of the hegemonic views in the multicultural environment of Canada. Chinese males are looked down upon and excluded from everyday activities and behaviors due to specific prejudice against their masculinity. Argument 1: Historical and institutional stereotyping on Chinese culture encouraged the assumption that Chinese men are inadequate in the western society. This leads to social hostility against the Chinese community in Canada. Evidence: Media using terminology such as ‘yellow bellied’, ‘yellow devil’ and ‘yellow fiend.’ Bounded footed wife contributes to the derogation of Chinese masculinity.

Increasing levy on Chinese immigrants discourages the growth of Chinese community.
