It’s Not All Mary Poppins

The Gender Genie

Stephen found this site which will analyze a piece of writing and tell you, based on the frequency and weight of a series of key words, whether the writer was male or female. When Stephen did it, he was correctly identified as male!

I tried six different posts, three anecdotal short story posts, three essays.

The results were interesting. Two of the three anecdotal posts were identified as being written by a woman. Two of the three essay posts were apparently written by a man.

I’m not sure what conclusions I could or should draw from the exercise, but it’s interesting. Anyone else want to try it and see what they find?
