on women’s space: the medium, the message, the blog

Tuesday, 12 December 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

I found a blog today as I was scrolling through the “next arrow” which I occasionally do! At time, though, I don’t find much that is interesting or important–mostly folks who have too much to say w/ not much content. Today was different, though! As I was reading the women’s space blog, I was reminded that women have been pushed and prodded to become like men! What do I mean, you ask?! Well, let me explain a bit.

It has been my sense that any sort of agency that women have embodied has been controlled and manipulated by the symbolic order [read masculinity and patriarchy]. I feel pretty stern about this. I have seen women’s bodies, jobs, educational pursuits, written essays, and medical care all manipulated by the masculine symbolic order and patriarchy. And, when reading the women’s space blog, I was surprised to see how another blog [cited as a neo-con blog] charged the women’s space blog as being drab and I suppose boring! So, now the virtual world is being encouraged to become like the dominant? That is, white, upper-class, and male? Even hypertext is subject to sexism! Check out the women’s space blog! The site and the blog are a must read!

Besides, this blog is about re-creating feminist theory and narrative that is critical and engaging! That’s what makes the blog “cool” and appropriate–not the CSS code or color scheme!
