"... so he sees that I care" : - A study concerning masculinity, friendship, young guys and emotions. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Detta är en kvalitativ studie som syftar till att undersöka och förstå unga killars komplexa förhållande till uttryckande av känslor av sårbarhet och hjälp. Författarna har genomfört semistrukturerade intervjuer med fyra killar i 20-års åldern om hur de dels reagerat på vänners avvikande beteende och även hur och vilka känslor de kan uttrycka för djupa respektive ytliga vänner. Detta har analyserats och tolkats med hjälp av Connells teoretiska begrepp hegemonisk maskulinitet. Resultaten som framkom var att killar pratar om känslor endast med djupa vänner. Djupa vänner har de tillit till och där behöver de inte bevisa sin manlighet på samma sätt som bland ytliga vänner. Bland ytliga vänner vill de inte visa upp tecken på svaghet eftersom att de är rädda för att få negativ kritik.

Abstract [en]

This is a qualitative study aimed at examining and understanding young guys complex relationship to the expression of emotions such as feelings of vulnerability and the need of help. The authors have carried out semi-structured interviews with four guys in the age around 20 years about how they have reacted to male friends divergent behaviour and also how and which emotions they could express in relation to superficial and deep male friends. This was then analyzed and interpreted with Connells theoretical conception of hegemonic masculinity. The results indicated that these young guys could only talk about feelings with their deepest friends. They trust their deep friends and felt that they didn't need to protect their masculinity around them in the same way as they had to do around superficial male friends. They were worried that they would get negative critique around superficial male friends if they were to express emotions of vulnerability and also didn't want to show signs of weakness around them.
