In this project we have examined how gender is discursively constructed in the radioshow Mads & Monopolet. We have traced the actions associated with gendered categories to investigate the restraints and possibilities connected to these. Our approach have been inspired by the theorist and psychologist Dorte Marie Søndergård, the method Membership Categorization Analysis and Margaret Wetherell & Nigel Edley’s theoretical reflections on hegemonic masculinity. Through our analysis of the radioshow we have found that there is a fine line between what is regarded as legitimate and what is not, when it comes to gendered behaviour. During the discussions it became evident that the participants drew on historical and cultural conceptions when placing men and women into different categories. Furthermore the most radical versions of these categories were the ones limited the most in their actions. The ones in the middle were generally more accepted, because they balance between old perceptions and new ideas of gendered positions. We have concluded that men are to the same extent as women limited in their actions and that old ideas concerning women and men are still present today.
