We’re now 175 comments into a rather heated thread on the topic of feminism, blogs, and respect. Toes are crushed, feelings are hurt, and the synapses are sufficiently tinkered with.
The good news: That thread will now be used in a seminar on Internet Research and Theory with this post relating to net communities and gender. We — yes, us, with our still-occurring fight — are a live counterexample to the usual we hear on women’s reluctance to deal with confrontation and lack of turn-taking.
Women’s reluctance to deal with confrontation. Irony prevails — and I love blogs.
