Qs: Gender, Sexuality, and Language on the Internet
Editor for this issue: Danielle St. Jean
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Gender, Sexuality, and Language on the Internet
Message 1: Gender, Sexuality, and Language on the Internet

Subject: Gender, Sexuality, and Language on the Internet

I am doing a study on gender roles, sexuality, and the internet,
focusing on a culture that has come to exist
on-line on specific websites.
I am looking for good resources on the relationships between
sex, gender, sexuality, and language, as well as information on what
these things look like off-line, so that I may compare on-line gender
norms to off-line gender norms.
I'm already aware of and making use of work by Durham, Eckert,
Goddard, Fausto-Sterling, Tannen, and Lakoff, but any other scholarly
works on the subject would be appreciated as they will allow me a
better view of both how these things are constructed off-line, and how
to best analyse the discussions I'm finding on-line. I'd appreciate
direction to anything in the field.
Thank you in advance for your time,
