Hmm.

There's an interesting experiment going on at genderanalyzer.com. They claim their AI can analyze a blog's language to determine if it was written by a man or a woman. They think I'm a woman.

So I'm going to see if this post makes any difference, football beer boobies football.

Well, it thought my blog was written by a man, and the first line there includes "fan girl". In an early post I mention wet-nursing, without using the word "boobies".

It's a mystery.

Rob Rey said...

Yup, it thinks I'm a woman too.
They may still have further work to do over at that website.

Corina St. Martin said...

Yeah, it happened to me too. It thinks I'm a man. Is this reverse genderology? Hmm

Melissa Findley said...

I think they might have it backwards. It was sure I was a man. Maybe I should talk more about makeup and fashion and less about painting studly, half naked fantasy men.

Maybe it thinks I'm a gay man? Hmmm...

Rooie said...

Well, now I'm sort of disappointed. It got mine right.

gallegos said...

I'm such a woman, too.

Lisa Yee said...

It got my blog right. It says I need to cut down on Halloween candy.

It thinks I'm a man. I think it needs some quotation marks around the word "intelligence".

Dan Santat said...

HA! HA! HA! You're a- *wait*.... Mine was written by a woman too.

Sometimes Adam, sometimes I think you're a little on the girly side. But then you grow some kind of far out facial hair. Maybe it needs to analyze that.
For what it's worth, the results of my analyzation said "we are certain that this website was written by not just a man, but a manly man. Strong and good-looking." So it's pretty accurate I'd say.

i am/ was/ is/ a guy, too. ohhhhhh great. better break that one to the missus.
i suppose i should consider giggling more when i type. or drop names like jimmy choos, mac lipgloss, err, "monthlies" in my entries. yeesh. :)

rico said...

It got ours right! It looks like it's a little over 50% correct, maybe it doesn't even read the blog and it just guesses!

Viv Rae said...

it thinks I'm a man. it clearly insulted me. i do have short hair like a guy, but that doesn't make me a guy. grrr....

Roberta said...

It says I'm a man...

Guess, I'll have to stop all the talk about football, beer, boobies and football!

GHGraphics said...

Thinks I'm a woman too. What a strange site.

Lark said...

Has anyone tested their blog multiple times to test whether or not it is just random? It might come up different on different attempts.

Candace Trew Camling said...

it thinks I am a woman as well..but I am. I can't believe I am that obvious...maybe I should talk about boobies more too.

beats being 'gender neutral...' At least you picked a side...

gail said...

I got a manly rating too. Jeez! And I've never mentioned football, beer, or...

Nina said...

It thinks I am a woman, which is right. But I sure don't throw like a girl!

Sorrentino said...

wow, they're just wrong!
