“The implication is that privacy resides in your name, not in your body. If you’re a man with the luxury to think this way, your body is understood as a sort of irrelevant accessory to your name, the thing that really matters.”

Thoughts on Free Speech Logic and Violentacrez | Excremental Virtue

Very interesting integration of gender into the Violentacrez “anonymity” debate. I find it really compelling — part of the male knapsack is our ability to frame privacy issues along abstract lines of semiotic identity. (I think maybe I’m just saying what Loofbourow said above, but with less clarity. Sorry.)
