Consider this quote:

“’(D)ominant masculinity’ appears to be a naturalized relation between maleness and power … (t)hese stereotypical constructions of variable masculinity mark the process by which masculinity becomes dominant in the sphere of white middle-class maleness” (Halberstam, Female Masculinity 2-3).

 

Question:

Generally speaking how was masculinity performed in La Mission?
