This paper analyzes gender in relation to turn allocation in a popular Thai chat room on the World Wide Web.Our results show that females participate more often and receive a higher rate of response from both females and males.Males, who are in the minority, must work harder to take the floor, even in their attempted flirtatious interactions.Moreover, everyone is in principle free to self-select (Lunsford, 1996), and turns are posted democratically in the order received by the system.These features lead to the prediction that chat rooms will have more self-selecting conversational “floors” (Strategies B and C) than face-to-face communication, with attendant implications for gender equality (cf.
