I want to argue that understanding masculinity is an important part of understanding gender and sexuality as it relates to information and communications technologies (ICTs), specifically those under the lens of the information-systems community. In order to do this, the landscape of gender and sexuality research in general is referred to along with such research in the field of information systems (IS), with reference as necessary to masculinity studies. I will then suggest some possible areas where a more thoroughgoing theorization may prove useful. In sum, future research might focus on the relationship between marginalised masculinities and the construction and consumption of IS in work organisations and society.
