Summary:Introduction : insiders, outsiders, hiders, and drifters -- The complementarity of deviance and conformity -- Deviance and conformity : the pressure of dual identities -- Fighting for normal? -- Bigfoot : undiscovered primate or inter-dimensional spirit? -- Sexuality and gender identity : assimilation vs. liberation -- Insiders and the normalization of illegal drugs -- Conclusion : studying deviance management -- Appendix 1 : on applying the theory of deviance management -- Appendix 2 : supplemental data analyses.
"Deviance Management examines how individuals and subcultural communities manage the stigma of being labeled as socially deviant across a wide range of cases studies, including LGBTQ individuals and groups, Bigfoot enthusiasts, social movements to reform laws prohibiting the consumption of alcohol and cannabis in United States, and the infamous Westboro Baptist Church. Drawing on original ethnographic, quantitative, and rhetorical research, Bader and Baker outline and test a simple yet insightful theory about how and when people combat, defy, hide from, or run from being stigmatized as 'deviant'"--Provided by publisher
