Gender and Identity

Of someone who loves games and Technology

Identity

My name is Christopher DeWitt. I believe that I am technologically inclined. I am also a person who loves to game. When it comes to technology, I like a good challenge. I'm not interested in school. nothing interests me. How about learning the theory of game mechanics? I am a complete nerd and geek and I like it.


In the play Twelfth Night, the charecter Viola is a servant to Orsino. She is a woman who s forced to dress as a man to get a job at Duke Orsino's palace

Gender

I am male that loves technology and videogames. I plays to the point that I sometimes neglect my schoolwork. (Dedication?) I usualy am at home and don't go out much. Some people may see me as a shut in. I have a lot of friends and I frequently will talk to them. I see myself as a person who doesn't like to give up on things.


Viola is a female that does all she can to get by in life, even if the situation is very severe. Because of her gender, people underestimate her, and so she is forced to dress up as a boy to get a job so she can get by.

Perception

I believe other people may see me as a shut in because I don't go outside much. I have many friends though and I try to avoid confrontation as best as I can. I don't get mad easily and II am usually a quiet person, unless I open up. Then I can become a little obnoxios.


I believ that other characters in Twelfth Night see Viola as a strong person. "Please—and I’ll pay you plenty for this—help me conceal my identity, and find me the right disguise so I can look the way I want. I want to be this Duke’s servant." (Act 1, ii, pg 3)

Similarity And Differences

A similarity between Viola and myself is that we are very resourceful. She finds an unusual way to get a job at Duke Orsino's by dressing up as a boy. I would think outside the box and try things to try to fix computer problems.


A difference is that I have a love for technlogy while Viola doesn't. She struggled with getting a job because of her gender while I don't think I would have the same problem. People might mistake viola as a boy, but no one would mistaken me for a girl.
