BABALIK DA YAPARIM KARİYER DE! BLOGGER BABALAR VE ERKEKLİĞİN KURUCU ROLLERİNDEN BABALIK ÜZERİNE
Oya Morva, Derya Gül Ünlü

Geleneksel aile yapısına özgü, toplumca norm kabul edilmiş cinsiyet rolleri, tüm dünyada olduğu gibi Türkiye’de de bir tür dönüşüm sürecindedir. Erkeğin, aile temelli cinsiyet rollerinden biri olarak babalık rolü ve bu role dair algı da hem bireysel hem de toplumsal düzeyde bu dönüşümden etkilenmektedir. 1990’lı yılların sonlarından itibaren babalık performansının sergilenebilmesi için kullanıcıya önemli fırsatlar sunan çevrimiçi alanlar, babalık algısındaki dönüşümün gerçekleşmesine, temsiline ve yaygınlaşmasına aracılık etmektedir. Bu kapsamda gerçekleştirilen çalışma, Türkiye’deki blogger babaların cinsiyet rollerine atfettikleri anlama bağlı olarak, bloglar üzerinden gerçekleşen çevrimiçi ve kamusal paylaşım pratiklerine odaklanmaktadır. Bu odak noktasından yola çıkan çalışmada, Türkiye’deki blogger babalarla gerçekleştirilen derinlemesine görüşmeler üzerinden, babalığı kamusal olarak tartışan bu erkeklerin babalığı nasıl tanımladıkları, babalık deneyim ve performanslarının sergilenmesinde blogları neden ve nasıl kullandıkları ele alınmıştır. Çalışma sonucunda, blogger babaların ilgili babalık modelini benimsediği, geleneksel erkeklik rolünün babalığa katılımlarının önünde bir engel teşkil ettiğini düşündükleri, blog paylaşımlarında çocukla ilgili anıların kaydını tutmanın yanı sıra, babalık ve toplumsal cinsiyet rollerine dair bir takım genel kabulleri sorgulatmak ya da davranış değişikliğine aracı olmak gibi motivasyonlara sahip oldukları bulgulanmıştır.
