T.L. Taylor Talk

I was very interested in Taylor’s approach to the concept of masculinity, particularly in her comparison of “geek masculinity” and “jock masculinity”.  There’s a stark contrast between how these two shows of male superiority reflect the nature of men in today’s society.  I think Taylor did a great job of discussing how both types of masculinity take a unique form in e-sports interaction, as well as admitting the limits of our understanding of what it means to be a guy (or rather, what it means to NOT be one) in the gaming world.
