I write like a boy!!!!

Via This Woman’s Work:

Acording to The Gender Genie I write like a boy!

“Inspired by an article in The New York Times Magazine, the Gender Genie uses a simplified version of an algorithm developed by Moshe Koppel, Bar-Ilan University in Israel, and Shlomo Argamon, Illinois Institute of Technology, to predict the gender of an author.”

I submitted four samples of writing off my website and all four of them were scored as man-style writing (“man-style” is my word, but I kinda like it).

Weird.

Female Score: 0
Male Score: 309

The Gender Genie thinks the author of this passage is: male!

  1. don’t want to puke on your parade…
    …but the Gender Genie was based on analyzing fiction, not non-fiction.
    So it doesn’t quite apply to lj. Unless you’re using lj to write novels…

      Hm… the online version even had a radio button for “blog entry” which made me believe that it was somehow taking the format into account? (Also radio buttons for non-fiction and fiction).
      (Maybe script writer added something?)
