« Ce qui se passe dans le vestiaire reste dans le vestiaire » : étude sur la socialisation genrée au sein des vestiaires d’EPS au collège

Abstract : This research focuses on the locker room of Physical Activities in middle school. This study has been conducted in a middle school with student from 12 to 15 years old. It wants to show that the locker room is particularly favorable to implement mechanisms which participate to the gendered socialization of the teenagers. Being a single-sex area, it witness gender norms already set out, but it also participate in producing them. Indeed, the exposition of the body make of the locker room a time to compare and judge the other’s bodies according to gendered norms. This informal moment, without the supervision of an adult, underline the pressure existing during adolescence to be included in a peer group, specifically in a peer group of the same sex. It allows separated practices between girls and between boys that participate to a gendered socialization. The pressure to conform to be included is established by the peer group who monitor that everybody is respecting the masculinity and femininity norms. If transgressions can be permitted under specifics circumstances, the locker room allows the peer group to monitor with more ease the others who are not respecting the gendered norms, and punish them with mockeries, verbal and/or physical violence. These sanctions are indicative of a gendered socialization who learn both to the teenagers to think about themselves as girls or boy, and to be aware that this gender identities must be conceived according to the principle of a hierarchy putting the male in a position of superiority and heterosexuality as the only norm.
