In this theoretical essay, ethnographically inspired, I seek to explore the variations of self-construction possibilities in the cyberspace, such as building ungendered bodies and polymorphic identities to oneself or to others. I take as locus of investigation the chat rooms “Lésbicas e Afins” of the group “Sex” of UOL internet portal. My attention is especially focused on the ways how subjects build themselves in those environments by the use of nicknames. More generally, my intention is to think about the use of cyberspace as means and space to a wide variety of gender relations which maybe are felt and experienced in more democratically and igualitarian ways.
