Abstract [en]

This essay is about conflicts between feminist theory and lived male sexuality. By interviewing four male feminist identified young activists this studie examines how these men solve potential conflicts between sexual desires and feminist ideals and how their identitiesare created with regards to feminist theory. A qualitative poststructuralist approach is used where feminst discourses set outs different ways for the men to interpret themselves as feminist subjects. The study concludes that these men distance themselves from what they find as different kinds of hegemonic masculinities, such as: activity, dominance and heterosexual masculinities. The possibilities of identification for the men in the study are: ”afemale position”, ”a non male position”, ”a refllexive or searching position” or ”a nonheterosexual position”.

Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats handlar om konflikter mellan feministiska ställningstaganden och levd manlig sexualitet hos fyra feministidentifierade män samt vilka betydelser dessa konflikter har för hur männen i studien kan identifiera sin manliga sexualitet. Genom kvalitativ postrukturalistiskt influerad metod används feministiska diskurser som fondvägg för min empiri. Studien visar hur respondenterna tar avstånd från hegemoniska maskulinitetsuttryck, exempelvis aktivitet, dominans och heterosexualitet och de vill förändra sig själva i en feministisk riktning. Deras feministiska sexuella identitet har fyra olika uttryck: ”Att beskriva sig själv som kvinnlig och uppvärdera traditionellt kvinnliga sexuella egenskaper”, ”att vara ickemanlig i sängen”, ”att reflektera över sin sexualitet” och ”att vara öppen för samkönat sexuellt umgänge”.
