The Gender Genie

The Gender Genie purports to autoMagically discern your gender from your blog posts (although I suspect any bit of writing would suffice). What would be fun to do is to test it out with the same blog post and see if minor variances in the way the text was constructed affect the results. For example, I suspect that the more non-contraction word sets one uses would shift its results to that of female since, in my experience at least, I've noticed that females tend to write out "do not" more than they use "don't". But that's me.

Anyways, check it out here.

Just in case you're wondering, this blog post -what's above this sentence at least- caused it to think I'm female. I guess that just means I'm more sensitive than the average male :)
