(4) Homosocial desire, as Eve Kosofsky Sedgewick tells us, designates "social bonds of persons of the same sex." (1) However, her use of the term presumes a "potential unbrokenness of a continuum between homosocial and homosexual," a continuum that the Mafia dictates remain unambiguous (1).
"Homosocial" is a word occasionally used in history and the social sciences, where it describes social bonds between persons of the same sex; it is a neologism, obviously formed by analogy with the "homosexual," and just as obviously meant to be distinguished from "homosexual." To draw the "homosocial" back into the orbit of "desire" is to hypothesize the potential unbrokenness of a continuum between homosocial and homosexual--a continuum whose visibility, for men, in our society, is radically disrupted.
