Moreover, when LGBTQ identities intersect with other less privileged identities, such as being a person of color (Bowleg, 2013; de Vries, 2015; Singh, 2013), non-Christian (Kugle, 2013), refugee or immigrant or disabled (Alessi, Kahn, & Chatterji, 2016), multiple layers of discrimination further complicate and stagnate change.
Furthermore, childhood overweight puts children at risk for type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, high cholesterol and high blood pressure, asthma, sleep disorders, early puberty or menstruation, Blount's disease (progressive turning of the lower leg, resembling bowleg), and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
If the scale is found to be appropriate in different settings and groups, having a new way to measure masculinity could affect how health outcomes and masculinity in Black men is studied (Bowleg et al., 2011; Chaney, 2009; Ford, 2011; Hammond, 2012; Hammond & Mattis, 2005; Harris et al., 2011; Hunter & Davis, 1992; Ornelas et al., 2009).
Based on the central tenets of intersectionality theory (see Bilge 2009; Bowleg 2008; Davis 2008; Hankivsky and Cormier 2009), we posit that while examining immigrant/refugee experiences, it is important to pay attention to how social categories such as race, class, gender, age, geography, immigrant status, ethnicity, and so on intersect to shape participants' experiences.
