In our day-to-day interaction with organizing systems (digitals or otherwise), we come across different types of resource/item groups. Sometimes the meaning behind these groups is explicit, with clearly explained categories (such as “Women” and “Men” in a fashion e-commerce), but in other situations we may find resources classified in a certain way without it being so obvious (e. g. resources grouped or structured by gender, but not explicitly labelled in a gendered way).
Users of these organising systems may derive meaning from these implicit classifications, becoming not only descriptive, but also normative, perpetuating assumptions about how we should interact with the world (gender stereotypes, gender binarism, power structures, etc.).
In this poster I want to show some concrete examples to bring conversation about these situations.
