Description: This study examines the role of gender and political affiliation on the use and persistence of gender identifiers, using digital trace data. This project will use a large database of twitter biographies to investigate gender differences in the use of gender identifiers, in both individual (male/female, man/woman, guy/lady) and relational contexts (husband/wife, father/mother, dad/mom). Longitudinal analyses will be used to consider trend use fluctuations over time, to see how these increase or decrease in use over time. Correlational analyses will be used to investigate the potential moderating impact of political affiliation/association (conservative/liberal) on the relationship between gender and use of gender identifiers. Assuming significant findings, results of this study will highlight aspects of gender identity differences between genders and political affiliations, and lead to additional questions regarding these relationships.
