2 The Concept of Management “Management” refers to social control –Prevention –Treatment –Punishment “Management” also refers to personal control –Organization –Facilitation –Sometimes, prevention etc as w/ social control

3 Managing a Deviant “Career” A “career” is an enduring lifestyle which entails practical skills and an emotional attachment- not all “jobs” are “careers.” Deviant “careers” are more challenging than non- deviant ones given the disparaged nature of deviant careers, so there are various methods of concealment and vocabularies of motive that are part of the deviant career.

4 Managing Deviance by Deviants: Elliott on “Dimensions of Coping” Secrecy Rationalizations Change to non-deviance Participation in deviant subcultures

5 Duff and Kay on Female Bodybuilders Claim of benefit “Blasting” “Basking in reflected glory” (“BIRGing”) Denying the issue (implied in Duff and Kay)

6 Thompson and Harred on Strippers Dividing the social world (from Goffman) Techniques of neutralization –“I need the money, and where else can I make this kind of money” –“The people who condemn me are hypocrites” –“I’m doing this for my kids”

7 Troiden on Managing Homosexuality among Gay Men Capitulation: Becoming celibate or attempting to “go straight” Minstrelization: Behaving consistently with stereotypes, which is safer since it does not entail allegations of “deception” from bashers Passing: More “dividing the social world” Group alignment: More “participation in deviant subcultures” Troiden’s research was conducted in a southern US college town- perhaps he saw no examples of gay men who simply lived openly as in many larger cities.
