Friday procrastination: the blog gender analyser

It’s Friday, so fancy a bit of distraction now you’ve joined another Ning network, checked your Twitter/Facebook thoroughly and read all of yesterday’s PopBitch and Sam Leith’s witty account of surprise redundancy …? (note: that’s no reference at all to’s own Friday morning activity)

Well… introducing the GenderAnalyzer: a nifty little site that predicts within a second just whether there’s an extra X or Y chromosome influencing that blog. Spookily accurate, according to the very necessary research just conducted.

Without further ado, or procrastination, here’s the link:

    Apparently there’s 96% chances I’m a man, and so is one of my other female blog friends. It just doesn’t work properly at all!!!

    Hmm, not that accurate. Gender Analyzer said it was 98% sure my blog was written by a man. Now, obviously I’m a tom, a proud one at that, even though I have, been *cough* neutered. But She Who Controls the Can Opener writes my blog on my behalf as I haven’t quite perfected my touch-paw typing yet and she’s female. Or was the last time I checked.

    Hmm, maybe she’s just very good at taking dictation from me.

    This Gender Analyzer is giving me a complex. I tested my own website under my name, which contains clips from my rock ‘n’ roll journalism days, and it claims “We have strong indicators that is written by a man (92%).” Undaunted, I tested my blog and it came up 73% male. Need I say I am 100% female, as my boyfriend will emphatically attest? Finally I went over to my cat’s site and tested it. This time it said, “We guess is written by a man (59%), however it’s quite gender neutral.” Well, she’s a spayed female, so that’s kinda accurate. Nevertheless, I give Gender Analyzer a FAIL.
