 So far, our conversation on gender and information has left an impression on me that was quite different than the one I initially entered with. When it came to gender, I often did not realize how much of an influence our society has on what is appropriate behavior for a man or woman. I often believed it was genetic, and that the fact that men and women typically behave a certain kind of way was scientifically determined. After readings from Roughgarden and other writers, I began to realize that humans have a much more complicated code of behavior than other animals. Information on the other hand, I began to understand depended on who the intended audience was, as information is often delivered in codes that are coded to reach a certain audience. Therefore, I realized that everyone processes information differently, and it often depends on what he or she's background is.
