is a popular star and
celebrity gossip column written by Sor-Jed, a pseudonymous
writer who is famous among Thai internet users for her/his
weekly satirical writings in Manager Online Newspaper
Sor-Jed’s articles notably provide a space for diversity of
gender and sexuality; however, s/he has reproduced many
patriarchal discourses, which affectedly suppressed the
self-agency of individuals, especially women and the sexual
marginalized. Significantly, the sexual discourses created by
Sor-Jed are mainly aimed for the profit of media business on
the internet, and Sor-Jed’s standpoint on working as a
columnist who wildly told sexual stories to Thai society made
her/his status in profession ambiguous and contradictory. This
paper aims to analyze the production and meaning of sexual
discourses in Sor-Jed’s writings, which cause the
aforementioned effect, from five selected articles of hers/his that
were published from the middle to the end of 2011, which are
also the last five pieces of work s/he contributed online.
