After the insectoid phases of submission to gene pools, the mature stage of the human life is the individual who thinks for him/herself". - Timothy Leary, Chaos and Cyberculture, 1994 Despite the adoption of the prefix "cyber" by pop culture as a catch-all term for anything involving computer technology, the etymology of the word from which it's taken, κυβηρνετης, a "steersman", is far more suggestive of the pilot of an oceanbound vessel than of computers and electronic gadgetry per se.

In "The Matrix," the new Keanu Reeves sci-fi flick that power-surged onto screens last week, the actor dangles from a helicopter, fights with shape-shifting androids and sports a cool pair of Ray-Bans--all while wired into a computer. In The Female Man Russ presents four principal female characters: Jeannine, living in a perpetual Great Depression, represents the malleable, soft, would-be ’50s housewife; Joanna, living in the present of the ’70s, is intelligent and intellectual but still expected to find a man to marry; Janet is a product of the futuristic, all-female Whileaway; and Jael is located temporally in a near future where feminist struggle has become an actual war between men and women.

It is a series of short stories that string together. S. civilian market have largely avoided bullpup guns. From within this world, objectives in meatspace can be accomplished.

For example, the take-no-prisoners “crammed” style, heavily laden with neologisms, had not gone away: ’Pooning a bimbo box takes more skill than a ped would ever imagine, because of their very roadunworthiness, their congenital lack of steel or other ferrous matter for the MagnaPoon to bite down on. In cyberpunk writing, much of the action takes place online, in cyberspace, blurring any border between the actual and the virtual reality. One specific goal of this article is to suggest ways to introduce such theory to students and readers by using fictional sources in conjunction with the standard academic literature.
