The Gender Genie is Goofier than Barbara Eden. About as laughable as Straightacting.com. But to the beginning . . .
Skimming through my Live Journal friends list I saw and couldn't resist trying the Livejournal Gender Tool.

It read the twelve thousand words on my Live Journal page.Didn't offer a word analysis.
Then I visited the Gender Genie.
Entry: Daddy was a bastard

Male Score: 1588
The Gender Genie thinks the author of this passage is: female!
I used the feminine word 'him' twenty times. I was writing about my Daddy who was very much a him. Gender Genie is heterosexist since gay people would refer often to their same-sex partners and dates.
Entry: The Right Reverend Frederick Eikerenkoetter, Th.B., D.Sc.L., Ph.D.
Female Score: 556
Male Score: 1081
The Gender Genie thinks the author of this passage is: male!
I owe my butchness to my frequent use of the word 'the.' (Need to clean that prose up, eh?)
Entry: Praise the Lord and pass the KY
Female Score: 643
Male Score: 1579
Still a guy. More 'the' and I never used girlie words like 'so,' 'am,' 'actually' or 'everything.'
Gender Genie says it has been right about two-thirds of the time. Even if I hadn't worked in market research / polling I'd have to admit that most people are just clichés. Does anybody think tops and bottoms have different prose styles? Bisexuals? Pansexuals? Asexuals?
Well it was a way to waste fifteen minutes.
