Abstract

In 2010, this journal published an early exposition of inclusive masculinity
theory. Since then, the theory has been widely adopted within both the sport
and masculinities literature. Furthermore, a large number of other scholars
not using the theory have also documented and labelled new masculinity
types. There has also been refinement of Inclusive Masculinity Theory,
alongside theoretical critiques. In this article, we provide an overview of the
genesis of the theory and its refinement, before considering and responding
to published and unpublished critiques of the theory. We then suggest future
directions for research.
