Harraway and Randolph position their arguments in constant transitions. Science and technological discourse is socially constructed through time and space. However, this construction is based on the female/male biological diference that persist in post modern times. In addition, oncomouse as a laboratory animal remaind us of the origins of ideology: acceptance of sacrifice in the name of the mayority (democracy).
