Gender Identity And Social Networking: A Queer-Feminist Critique Of Facebook, Gregory David Sides May 2010

Gender Identity And Social Networking: A Queer-Feminist Critique Of Facebook, Gregory David Sides

Drawing on materials from law, history, and social theory, this book integrates practical proposals for reform with larger issues of sexuality and identity. Beginning with a summary of existing demographic data and offering a historical overview of pre-Stonewall views ...
