Victory is ours . . .

This fun little toy came via Devil Mood: GenderAnalyzer will attempt to determine the gender of the author of your (or anyone else's) blog.

And the winner is:

"We guess is written by a woman (52%), however it's quite gender neutral."

Cat's out of the bag now.

Wow, oh wow. It's your sensitive side showing through, Murat, and they must not have gone all the way back to your posts on Yemaya and the sexy goddesses.

I ran my blog on it, and it says that the writer is a woman--64%. That's not very high for a blog that purports to be the memoirs of a white chinese DAUGHTER-in-law. I was expecting something like 85 or 90%.

But, I will say this, T: I ran the scan on most of the folks in my blogroll and I believe your womanliness beat out everyone else (my paltry 52% included). One of the ladies even came in on the masculine side; it's good to know that there's a fair amount of healthy crossblog-dressing going on.

I am woman, hear me roar!!!

I wonder what they would do with an essay by Irigaray or Cixous or Adrienne Rich or even Judith Butler.

That could be an interesting study. I wonder how they set their parameters... Very fun toy. Thanks for sharing.

Thought you'd be pleased, T. I think if you so much as mention anything male (or female, if male), you're automatically docked 33%. I'm sure it was Yemaya who saved my ass - as she has for 17 years (17 years that I knew of) now.

hmmm only 57% woman and quite gender neutral. Interesting that it took about 5 seconds to come back with the answer....
I don't think they made it to Yemaya P

hahaha That was funny. I guess it's not very accurate, or I'm guessing your rich style has fooled them. I would like to know their criteria anyway...

Wow, Texas has great Saturday Chinese schools. Even Dee is getting into the act! Although in idiomatic Chinese, they just say the Chinese equivalent of "rear end" to express those sentiments.

Chinese lesson for Dee: 屁股蛋 (rear end eggs). This is the Chinese slang for what you want to say.

Dee: Hey, girl these are big Analyzer Engines, right? Think they just grab the first page? If that's the case, you're right: I may be a lot more womanly than GA might think.

Devil Girl: Actually, I always thought I was a lot more than 52% woman. Thanks for sending the toy our way. As you can see, some of us have been having fun with it.

Teresa: I will be offering "rear end eggs" as an appropriate option to my students who hate putting up with a lot of the rear end eggs around them. Come to think of it, Walden will enjoy the term immensely himself.

Buwahaha Thanks Teresa - the best friends are the ones who can teach you to say all the dirty words in a different languages. After working inclusion I can even sign a few LOL Rear end eggs - my new favorite term.

P - I think they cheat with the whole "quite gender neutral" thing...sorta kinda maybe?? They must be run by politicians :)

We guess is written by a man (53%), however it's quite gender neutral.

Well, I do enjoy men's clothing ;)

jsd: Our cross-dressings notwithstanding (I did once don a sailor dress, with the desired effect: the owner never wore it again), I suppose it's our gender neutral writing we should be most proud of.

I discovered the gender-determinator back in the winter. It said I write like a man. Swagger.

San: I always knew you had the cojones, girl.
