Blogging about blogging – no.427 in an infinite series

I know everyones probably already seen this, about 9 years ago or something but I was interested in this simple Gender Genie based on masculine/feminine keywords.

I just think its interesting – I put about 12 example posts into the thing, and it said that half of them were most likely written by a man, and half of them were most likely written by a woman. How terribly androgenous.

Even then, when it said male or female, the numbers of male/female indicator words were always very close. So it would be 455 male signifiers to 460 female. Things like that. But occasionally it would swing right out one way or the other.

I wonder if everyone is the same – a mixture of male and female styles of writing, or whether some of us big-tittied leg-waxers have the power and the privilage of being able to talk like a man! Oooh!

Hm. Now have put it that way, I wonder whether its really something to be proud of.

Or whether I was proud of it in the first place.

But I do wonder – how would my favourite bloggers fare?

Does the mixture of how male or female their writing is make me like peoples writing more or less?

On a random sample on 10 posts, how do people fare in general?

Do they write like their gender?

Does it actually MEAN anything at all?

And if I put THIS post through the Gender Genie, will it be female or male?

(Answer? Male, apparently. Now, would that result stay the same if I copied the words periods, babies, breasts and shopping several dozen times between here and the end of the post?)

periods, babies, breasts and shopping periods, babies, breasts shopping periods, babies, breasts and shopping periods, babies, breasts and shopping periods, babies, breasts shopping periods, babies, breasts shopping periods, babies, breasts and shopping periods, babies, breasts and shopping periods, babies, breasts shopping periods, babies, breasts and shopping oh why am I not married yet?

(Oh, I have just tried it, and it was STILL more likely to be written by a man.)

(Perv)

Oh just go and try it.
