Laddish Behaviour and Gender Performativity in British and Spanish Personal Weblogs
Año del Documento
ES: Revista de filología inglesa, 2008, N.29, pags.43-69
The relationship between the speaking patterns of women and their social identities have previously been analysed in both oral interaction and written texts. The present paper examines contrastively British and Spanish female gender identity in personal weblogs, one of the latest modes of virtual communication. More specifically, this study is concerned with the tribulations of the British and Spanish teenage female self in narrating their love-lives in personal weblogs. It will be acknowledged that the construction of the teenage female self is still unstable in the twenty-first century. The results suggest these tribulations shed further light on the underlying ideological process which reveals the fight between the persistence of traditional patriarchal feminine behaviours and the appearance of culturally based androgynous behaviour patterns in both British and Spanish societies.
