In an important sense there is only one complete unblushing male in America: a
young, married, white, urban, northern, heterosexual, Protestant, father, of college
education, fully employed, of good complexion, weight, and height, and a recent
record in sports. . . . Any male who fails to qualify in any one of these ways is likely
to view himself—during moments at least—as unworthy, incomplete, and inferior.
– Erving Goffman (1963), Canadian-American Sociologist
