Men's spaces are separate social and cultural spaces, roles and norms available to men in some non-westernized societies. It is the membership of these spaces that determines a male's manhood, while failing to get a membership of this space amounts to being denied manhood, and to be liable to queerhood, i.e. to be counted as a 'third gender' or a non-man male. Although these spaces are restricted for women, Western women who want to study these spaces are often allowed entry.

dbo:abstract
  • Men's spaces are separate social and cultural spaces, roles and norms available to men in some non-westernized societies. It is the membership of these spaces that determines a male's manhood, while failing to get a membership of this space amounts to being denied manhood, and to be liable to queerhood, i.e. to be counted as a 'third gender' or a non-man male. In non-westernized cultures, most traditional spaces are divided into men's spaces, women's spaces and third gender spaces. The entry or participation of women in these men's spaces is highly restricted. Entry of third genderered persons into men's spaces is also regulated, although with more freedom than women to partake in these spaces. Although these spaces are restricted for women, Western women who want to study these spaces are often allowed entry. (en)
