Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to ascertain how great the acceptance is in team sports against minorities. Our idea about team sports today, is that it’s characterized by an overall macho culture and the norm is to be masculine and heterosexual. With this study we want to find out how difficult it’s to depart from these specific standards and the problems that can arise when those standards are not followed. We have chosen a qualitative approach consisting of a few extensive interviews. The study has shown that masculinity is something that is constantly reproduced by team sports and individuals' abilities to sustain this scenario. It still exists a kind of stigma regarding norm breakers applicable not only on sexuality but also on masculinity. We have also come to the conclusion that it is much easier to come out as gay today in team sports than it was ten years ago, violating the standards do not carry the same social stratification as before.

Abstract [sv]

Denna studie har genomförts för att få klarhet i hur stor acceptans det idag finns inom lagidrotter mot minoriteter. Vi har en uppfattning om att lagidrott idag präglas av en övergripande machokultur samt att normen är att vara maskulin och heterosexuell. Vi vill undersöka synen på maskuliniteten samt sexualiteten inom svensk lagidrott. Vår empiri bygger på ett kvalitativt tillvägagångssätt som består av ett fåtal omfattande intervjuer som sedan kopplas till teorierna hegemonisk maskulinitet, inkluderade maskulinitet samt det teoretiska begreppet stigmatisering. Studien visar att maskulinitet är något som hela tiden reproduceras med hjälp av dessa lagidrotter och genom individernas förmågor att upprätthålla detta scenario. Det existerar fortfarande en form utav stigmatisering av normbrytare gällande inte bara sexualitet utan även maskuliniteter. Dock har vi kommit fram till att det idag är mycket lättare att komma ut som homosexuell inom lagidrotten än vad det var för tio år sedan samt att bryta mot normerna inte medför samma sociala stratifiering som tidigare.
