PostSecret (http://postsecret.blogspot.com/) is an informal learning site that individuals choose to participate in for reasons that may include hope of achieving personal liberation, exploring multiple identities, and forming a supportive community. PostSecret, a contemporary confessional, allows identity exploration via anonymity. I discuss the politics of gender identity based on my reflective analysis of an activity that I facilitated in a graduate-level Art Education Web 2.0 Pedagogy course in which students used Diigo, a Web 2.0 tool, to post critical comments that unveiled their assumptions about the identities of the creators of the postcards displayed on PostSecret. I present the activity, analysis, and interpretation; and my investigation into how PostSecret may be strategically intervened by participants in order to disrupt gender stereotypes.
