Toxic: on race, gender, and resilient labor on social media »

Toxic: on race, gender, and resilient labor on social media » | mass media | Scoop.it

Concepts like “the male gaze” and “controlling images” are Gender Studies 101 material: they’re the basic terms in which many feminists understand the media’s oppression of white women (in the case of the male gaze) and black women (in the case of controlling images). The gaze and controlling images are how white supremacist patriarchy subject women to its control.

But I think contemporary social media and big-data political economies are using different devices to control women, especially black women. Social media and big data facilitate a specific form of sexist racism, one that controls women through racialized discourses of toxicity and unhealthy behavior patterns. Instead of turning women into objects and/or erasing their agency, social media and big data let non-white women do and say whatever they want, because their so-called “aggressive bullying” produces the damage against which white women demonstrate their resilience. A similar claim has been (in)famously leveled against “feminism,” especially “intersectional feminism”: it vampirically drains the lifeblood of the progressive, radical left.

Anna Knabe's curator insight, March 16, 2014 12:00 AM

In this compelling opinion piece, Robin James says that social media constructs an image of women as being toxic/vampiric. She blames this degradation on the same white supremest patriarchal forces which perpetuate "the male gaze" and "controlling images" in media. However, "social media and big-data use different devices to control women," she says. There is “an effort to gentrify digital spaces in the name of safety and dignified discourse is sweeping the Internet, hoping to cleanse “pollution” by erasing undesirable influence.” At the bottom of this food chain is women of color and white women are one step above. They are the cheap labor in the "economy of unworthiness" that is the Internet and men are free to exploit their efforts.

 

This article made me think about gender disparity on the Internet in a totally new way. Not only is it also affected by race but the entire system can be viewed as an economic system, with old school demographics like race, gender, etc. designating your treatment. The more privileged participants of social media (i.e. white males) feed on the human capital that the "low class" (i.e. black women) provide.

Online, Researcher Says, Teens Do What They've Always Done

Online, Researcher Says, Teens Do What They've Always Done | mass media | Scoop.it
In the world of social media research, danah boyd is a star. She says most adults misread and overreact to the online lives of teenagers. But as the title of her new book suggests, It's Complicated.

Before Facebook, before Myspace, boyd (who uses lowercase for her first and last name) was an early adopter of the Internet. She got hooked when she was a teenager in the mid-1990s living with her family in a small town in Pennsylvania. It was "inspiring and exciting" to suddenly have access "to people who were more interesting than the people I went to school with," she says.

Today boyd is one of those people who seems to have memorized several maps of the World Wide Web. She roams like the rest of us, but she also seems to know exactly where to go and what to do when she gets there. She's got a variety of different Twitter accounts. "I have both my formal, professional @zephoria account, but then I also have a personal account which is me joking around with friends — and then I have an even sillier account which is me pretending to be my 7-month-old son," says boyd. "Flickr," she says, "has been a home for a long time to share photos with friends," and LinkedIn is where she spends professional time.

On the subject of Facebook, boyd rolls her eyes. Yes, she's there, but she finds it a very hard space to manage.
