Gender Genie

So, there's this website, Gender Genie, that will analyze your writing and tell you if you are a guy or a girl. Apparently, there's an algorithm that will determine your gender from the words you use when you write. I tried about 5 or 6 of my posts and I was determined to be a male two times and a female the rest. I just don't think it works. Try it out and let me know if it correctly guesses your gender.

How can what you write tell your gender? I mean, what if a girl learned to write from a male, what if a girl was taken under some guy's wing? I just don't get it. Whatever.

Well, it says I'm female.

Thank god.

How interesting. I don't know how it works, but it worked for me. I even chose my review of the latest X-Men movie, thinking it was more "gender neutral" in tone. I guess there's no hiding it, I'm a woman!

Thanks, Michelle!
