War of the Sexes: Language

Nicole Khan's insight:

This is a cute doc based on 'made for tv' focus group. Comintated by Deborah Tannen and Deborah Saucier, it offers some insight to the diffrences in language use by gender. Intiitivley, the women were able to dominate the men on most challenges. (5 areas in total). I was floored to discover that the men won over the ladies when it came to public speaking. It appears that this is the area where men are most comfortable to use their language brovado. Hmm... So does this imply that they are simply choosing not to communicate strongly in other areas?

I am loving this brief article. There are many important points. As Twitter is simply an innovation on 'text talk' within the public domain, I recognize some stylistic trends here. Deborah Tannen speaks and writes about this quite often; that is, the different approaches that men and women have to conversation. She highlights that women attempt to create connection or interpersonal relations, while men tend to be more concerned with status, hierarchy and as some focus group have shown, control of public conversation. Now this is not to paint either gender with a broad stroke, but here on Twitter we can see how these social findings play out. Even in the virtual world women experience communication differently. Hmm... I wonder why more communication companies don't try harder to reflect their customers' demographic? – Twitter! You need a sociolinguist on your corporate board. Call me, I think I may know a gal. ; ) For a bit of Tannen's research on this please see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzQK0JigAf8 It is posted on page 2 of this topic and Tannen's full thesis on the topic is also available here.

Wikipedia:Gender-neutral language

WP:GENDER redirects here. You may also be looking for Wikipedia:WikiProject Gender Studies. Gender-neutral language ( Gender neutrality in English) avoids constructions that might be interpreted by some readers as an unnecessary reinforcement of traditional stereotypes. Gender-neutral language does not inherently convey a particular viewpoint, political agenda or ideal.

Sarah's curator insight, December 13, 2013 7:14 AM

This is a very interesting article and it is very controversial. First of all, I agree that every human deserves the right to define and be themselves. But secondly, how can Kindergarteners understand the difference between the genders and be able to identify themselves as the opposite? This article raises many concerns, such as , how will people identify whether a child is male or female? By their clothes? Voice? Body shape?

Nicole Khan's comment, December 14, 2013 12:01 AM
This is a very powerful advertisement from Proctor & Gamble. It's interesting that this commercial openly highlights an issue that people never really want to talk about. Language is so plentiful, but one of its' greatest dangers can be found in labels. The scene by scene comparisons really makes me question how much weight words have when we construct the 'value' of a person in our minds. For instance, if I said that my boss was nagging, would you assume them to be a female. Conversely, if a said that my boss was completely sexist, why would you assume that them to be a man?
Nicole Khan's comment, December 14, 2013 12:19 AM
If our word choices presume a gender, then is it fitting that someone who pushes against the gender stereotype should be labelled harshly? On the other hand, women are also assuming the negative labels which are associated with their status. If I'm articulate, commanding and assertive on the job would you call me a leader or a b*tch? I'd wager that if I were to intentionally behave like a b*tch, you'd call me boss to my face. But why does it have to be this way? I don't think I can give labels the same power that I used to.
