Gender Genie

I found this online a while back ...

www.bookblog.net/gender/genie.html

You go to the Web site, paste in 500 or so words of text from one of your stories, and it guesses whether the text was written by a male or female. So far it's about 50/50 with me. Maybe that says something about the lousiness of the software. Or maybe it says something about the lousiness of my masculinity. Or my writing. Who knows? Enjoy.

That is the wildest thing! It batted 100% in my case (mucho-macho masculine, buddy!) on every story and blog entry and nonfiction piece but one: the one story I have that is written with a female protagonist. I must be getting into a woman's mind rather well, hey? If only that would carry over to real life . . .
