what is a genderchanger?
We did not make up this term, we are re-using it. The tech industry created it.
Technically and literally a gender changer is a computer part - the image top left of every page of this website represents one. It is an adapter that changes the "sex" of a port. Ports with pins are said to be male, ports with holes are said to be female. In the situation where two pieces of hardware both have the same port, an adapter saves the day and makes a connection possible.
We are reclaiming the term to mean a person interested in the gendered aspects of technology.
