Ben, you might find the work of Haraway and other UC Santa Cruz  
feminst-science-studies work from the 80s and 90s to be fairly male- 
friendly and closely engaged with the kind of anthropological and  
sociological questions you're raising. That was the work I cut my  
theoretical teeth on and it doesn't make the kinds of generalisations  
that you suggest are characteristic of the field. It's also a very  
handy toolbox for engaging with political issues in technological  
capitalism, so it seems appropriate to mention them on this list.
