I was just wondering what people thought of Haraway's discussion of Richard Gordon's concept of the "homework economy" and what it means to be feminized and if anyone thought it paralled to any other concept we've talked about before.
Gordon describes the female, or being feminized, as anything "made extremely vulnerable; able to be disassembled, reassembled, exploited as a reserve labour force; seen less as workers than as servers; subjected to time arrangements on and off the paid job that make a mockery of a limited work day; leading an existence that always borders on being obscene, out of place, and reducible to sex" (166).
Earlier, Haraway describes the cyborg as "a kind of disassembled and reassembled, postmodern collective and personal self" (163). But since the cyborg is something that Haraway argues to be gender-neutral, I found this somewhat confusing that he intertwines part of his depiction of the cyborg with what it is meant to be feminized. Any thoughts?
