A significant re-synthesis of overdue 19th- and early twentieth-century manhood, Brutes in Suits develops formidable strains of study into the social technology of sexual distinction history’s get together of rugged individualism; the hunting-and-killing style of well known men’s literature; that grasp textual content of hypermasculinity: collage soccer; army tradition, struggle making, and discovering excitement in killing; and patriarchy, sexual jealousy, and the legislations.

Der Ursprung der folgenden Abhandlung lässt sich genau dort verorten, wo normalisierte Muster auffallen und zum Gegenstand von Reflexion und Kritik werden. Denn der Auslöser der inflammation struggle die kurze Thematisierung von Migrantinnen im Speziellen, bei denen es ja nochmal 'anders' sei, auch 'kulturell anders'. Diese Anmerkung bzw. dieser kaum merkliche Nebensatz erfuhr meine volle Aufmerksamkeit – und führte zur inflammation. Zum einen schien eine Vorstellung darüber zu bestehen, wer und wie 'die' Migrantinnen seien. Zum anderen warfare angedeutet, dass sie bislang in der Diskussion nicht gemeint sein konnten, als es um 'die' Frauen ging. Die Unterstellung einer (kulturellen) Andersartigkeit battle als Sprechakt aus einer überlegenen Positionierung heraus kaum zu überhören; gesprochen wurde von 'uns' über 'sie'.
In der folgenden Abhandlung werde ich mich genau dieser Verbindung widmen: der Verschränkung der Kategorie 'Geschlecht' mit der Kategorie 'Ethnie/ Kultur', welche als gesellschaftliche Macht- und Strukturdimensionen fungieren. Ich gehe in dieser Arbeit von der Annahme aus, dass Ethnisierungsprozesse parallel zu Geschlechterkonstruktionen verlaufen, und versuche aufzuzeigen, wie 'die andere' Frau bzw. 'der andere' Mann hervorgebracht als auch reproduziert und damit bestehende gesellschaftliche Hierarchien legitimiert werden
