Donna Haraway - Cyborg Woman - this afternoons revision (perhaps the reason why I feel like I’m going slightly mad)
“The cyborg woman is a combination of physical perfection, fictional and social reality, and complete submission to the idea of a female identity that is not individualized. The cyborg woman, for Haraway, exists both in the natural world and the world of fiction and ideology. She creates a totally fictional belief system centered around the cyborg woman. She places a huge emphasis on the fact that there is nothing, besides a double X, to completely bind women together in a stereotypical group and trying to do so reinforces the oppression of women of past societies. The quest for a unified identity in woman’s groups is counter productive, says Haraway, and instead women should strive for an affinity as opposed to an identity. She uses the idea of cyborgs to encourage feminists to go beyond their arguments of essentialism and naturalism, beyond the “hippie” image and into a virtual dream world.”
