摘要 Abstract
本文從Bourdieusian女性主義角度出發,以男性家暴諮商經驗為例,說明男性內部的階級「差異」如何再製,以及階級權力的運作邏輯。家暴經常被視為是「工人階級男性」才有的實踐,透過此凝視,中產階級得以維持其優勢與正當性;但是如果「中產階級」男性被冠上家暴的罪名,就會被認為像工人階級男性一樣無知,其原本受人尊敬的階級特質則會因社會場域的轉移,成為讓人詬病的原因,因此這類男性會經歷「衝突/矛盾」的權力關係。透過此分析,本文挑戰單一、刻板的家暴男性形象,跳脫本質化的階級分析,用以解釋中產階級特質對家暴男性既是「資產」(聲望)也是「負債」(污名),並非是定著的特質。

Based on group observations and in-depth interviews, the authors discuss how the intersection of class and gender manifests in the counseling experiences of domestically violent Taiwanese men. The authors use a Bourdieusian feminist approach to analyze how class distinctions within gender are (re)produced and the power logics underlying such distinctions. The nature of domestically violent men is inscribed with meanings of (working) class specificity for maintaining middle-class ‘purity’. In its analysis of men’s multiple and conflicting experiences, this paper contributes to research on domestically violent men by challenging the monolithic and stereotype of male abusers. It also rejects the essentialist approach to class analysis through a relational understanding of class.
