Abstract

In Today’s China, the discussion about gender conflict on social media is becoming increasingly heated and affecting social harmony and gender equality. This essay uses McLuhan’s 2 media theories (The medium is the message & Global village) to discuss why “feminism” becomes negative on Chinese Weibo. We can draw a conclusion that Weibo’s users have access to negative feminist messages all around the world based on the ‘Global village’ theory. In addition, the ranking function and the comment function have drawn the attention of ordinary users to negative feminism and made negative feminism discussion more widely based on ‘the medium is the message’ theory.
