And proud of it

So there's this website called Gender Guesser. You plug in 300+ words of text and it tells you what gender you are. I plugged in three blog entries, and based on the below results, I am a weak male:

The Gunfight at the OK Corral entry:

The Scottish Play review:

The Oscar Prediction entry:

"Weak emphasis could indicate European."
Right. That and the espadrilles and the man-bag, and the ability to conduct an interesting conversation with a member of the opposite gender.

ALL my writing came up male. This explains much.

Interestingly, such computer programs also peg my writing as male, even though I'm female. It's easy -- computers are mathematical. Language is not. Our written influences were mostly male, and the vast majority of samples the computer program has are male. It's just a machine. Language and humanity are beyond it.
