Gender Confusion

I gave The Gender Genie a whirl. The Genie uses a simplified version of an algorithm to predict the gender of an author. You can submit fiction, non-fiction or blog entries.

When I submitted my recent entry about the the refinery explosions, I got the following result:

Female Score: 603
Male Score: 1054
The Gender Genie thinks the author of this passage is: male!

The big hint that I was a male in this entry was the number of times I used "the" throughout.

So I decided to try again. This time I submitted another recent entry about family annoyances and got this result:

Female Score: 927
Male Score: 790
The Gender Genie thinks the author of this passage is: female!

I was declared female due to my numerous uses of "so" and "like".

(Right now, I wish I had a margarita genie.)

And for more fun with words, check out _fucking_moron. Spelling does matter here.
