Virtual Gender/ Wajcman

Leave a comment

This article is about the way internet can transform gender. People can be on the internet and act as another person or gender from what they really are. It also talks about how this one man, Lewin, changed his gender on the internet to get closer to women and give advice to help them out with their problems. It also mentions how cyberspace is a huge thing when it comes to gender.

I, personally, didn’t really like this article. The way a person can get online and pretend to be something they are not is, to me, ridiculous. If you are trying to help someone, you don’t have to pretend you have a disability or something is wrong with you just to get attenention from the other race or opposite gender. That can really cause alot of problems and it does with how our society is today. People use the internet everyday for things and never know if they are getting caught up in situations like the one with Lewin. I think we should start being more cautious with the things we do, say, and post on the internet.
