Sex analysis

No, no, don't get excited (or fearful): it's merely a little web widget, discovered via Tom Paine, that analyses your blog to see whether it is written by a man or a woman.

Apparently, the gadget is 61% sure that The Kitchen is written by a bloke. Only 61%?
We think http://devilskitchen.me.uk is written by a man (61%).

Anyone else confused as to your humble Devil's gender?

I scored 93% likely to be written by a man, which surprises me.

Dick Puddlecote said...

86% here. I blame mentioning Jacqui Smith for the other 14%.

I score 86% likely to be written by a man!

And the 'yes/no' question regarding accuracy is hovering close to 50/50, so needs more work on that widget, I think...

Apparently I'm 79% male.

I got the same as the fat bigot and I used my own name, and a picture!

74% for me. Like Martin I use my own name and photograph too. Hmmm....

Oh I don't know DK. I had you pegged for one of those metrosexual types.

63% male for my blog. Don't know what is behind their analysis, but you would have thought that those people who use their names and a photo might get a slightly more definite result!

Although, according to the vote on their site, they get it right 53% of the time, and wrong 47% of the time. So maybe they just pretty much flip a coin and hope for the best.

I tried Julia M, and she did indeed score "86% likely to be written by a man", but there again, JM does go for logic, facts, humour and controlled rage and so on rather than typical girly stuff, so that's not really surprising.

I tried it on the only proper girly blog that I visit and it did indeed score 'likely to be written by a woman'.

We guess http://iaindale.blogspot.com/ is written by a woman (52%), however it's quite gender neutral.

Pinko said...

According to it's own poll, it is only right 53% of the time. Slightly better than random I supppose.

Oh yeah? So what has happened for the last ten years, exactly?

Over at the ASI, they are posting some of the winning entries of the Young Writers on Liberty. One does not want to put such keen minds off,...
