Tip: To sort articles by Rank…

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search.    This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search.  Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Homosexual Boyhood: Notes on Girlyboys Related Papers

Ken Corbett, Ph.D.

This essay is an inaugural effort to conceive of homosexual boyhood. It focuses in particular on a subset of homosexual boys, parodically called “girlyboys,” whose mixed feminine-masculine gender experience moves beyond the conventional categories of masculinity and femininity. These boys have often been cast from the realm of “gender health” through the reluctance of psychologists and psychiatrists to recognize the actuality of gender variance and crossgendered identifications within the domain of mental health. Propelling and commingling with efforts to capture the subjectivity of girlyboys (largely through clinical material) is a discussion of the need for integration in human life. A call is made to retain concepts such as psychic structure and ego integration, and apply them to reimagine psychic developments that are free from the determinisms that psychoanalysts have so readily fallen back upon to account for human development.
