A man ostracized by society for his sexual preference, discriminated against and victimized, because he is straight. This world where heterophobia runs rampant and homosexuality is stigmatized is from a story called The Crooked Man, which was written by Charles Beamont and published in Playboy magazine. That world is one that many would fear and think of unjust, but is that not what happening right now in the world in the other spectrum. According to the Advocate, Hugh Hefner, create of Playboy, wrote that, “If it was wrong to persecute heterosexuals in a homosexual society, then the reverse was wrong too.” in response to the harsh backlash that the article garnered over half a decade ago. Americans have come a long way since the mid-20th century in acceptance and understanding of other human beings.

By observing Michael Foucault in the “The History of Sexuality” (1976) as well as Annamarie Jagose & Judith Butler in “Queer in Queer Theory” (1996), we become aware of different ideas/identities of the self.

I will also use secondary sources that explain in detail both the physical and emotional features of the masculine stereotypical cowboy. With this information I will contrast the stereotypical cowboy from Jack and Ennis. I will illustrate that societal pressures and the perception of a stereotypical cowboys lead society to think of Jack and Ennis as queers rather than cowboys. The Western genre is unquestionably one that is governed by the stereotypical cowboy and his masculinity. Although this genre rarely breaks away from this mould, Annie Proulx’s short story and Ang Lee’s film defy the set expectations of the western celebration of cowboy masculinity.

The Cowboy Figure The figure of the cowboy is prominent, not only in America’s history, but also in contemporary society. The cowboy has always been regarded as the epitome of freedom, machismo and individuality, and his character maintains a certain romantic quality about it. Riding the range with his trusty horse, forging the frontier, and exposing himself to the mercy of the wilderness, the cowboy lives for himself alone and yet he lives the life about which the rest of society can only fantasize. The cowboy, fearless hero of the West, has become a cultural icon. One literary critic, Sara Spurgeon, sums up the cowboy fantasy by saying that: the figure of the cowboy personifies America’s most cherished myths--combining ideas of American exceptionalism, Manifest Destiny, rugged individualism, frontier democracy, and communion with and conquest of the natural world…The icon of the sacred cowboy is one of our potent national fantasies, viable in everything from blue jeans to car commercials to popular films.
