Abstract
It is a big challenge for social work to catch up on all the victims of honor-related violence and oppression. A group that isn´t usually mentioned in the media are boys.

The texts were analyzed on the basis of five analyzed issues to, among other things, get access to the implied. I got some help from my theoretical perspectives, which was queer theory and normalization theory. The result showed that the Swedish daily press makes a clear distinction between "us and them". Honors Culture is associated with the other in other countries. The boys are not always described as victims, or even the word "honor" is mentioned associated with these boys. The result shows that I unlike previous research notes how the boys are described and presented. This study also includes concepts such as masculine, feminine, "us and them" as well as the normal and deviant. (Less)
