Paste a snippet of text into this online
form at BookBlog.net, and — applying
an algorithm from groundbreaking
linguistic research — the Gender Genie
will determine whether the writer is
male or female!
How is this possible?!
In a nutshell, it assumes that men write
more about objects than women, who
tend to write more often about
relationships. Whether that’s hogwash
or not, the Genie is apparently right
80% of the time. Are you?
Check to see if you’re unknowingly
writing in drag. Or test one of those
ambiguously-gendered author names
pseudonyms. Or do some detective
work on your Instant Message buddies.
The Gender Genie won’t grant any of
your wishes but it’s lots of fun to, um,
fool around with.
