Ok, so I found about the Gender Analyzer website through Julie Clawson at the Emerging Women blog, and I had to give a few of my fav blogs a whirl to see how folks fared. First off, Gender Analyzer is 65% sure that my blog is written by a woman... in other words, Gender Analyzer is 65% sure that I am a woman. Some days I am far less sure, so that's cool.
It's also 63% sure that the Mike Stavlund (aka The Best Writer I Actually Hang Out With) is a man (correct), 71% sure that P3T3RK3Y5 is a man (correct), and 59% certain that Rabbi Marc Gopin is male (although his blog is "quite gender neutral"). I guess Rabbi Gopin is not obviously "male" because he is a graceful and passionate writer with strong emotions (which he communicates in his writing without shame) and he works tirelessly for the cause of peace in the Middle East. Dunno.
However, it is 53% certain that Mike Croghan is a woman (although his blog is also "quite gender neutral") and 51% certain that Nadia Bolz-Weber is a man.
The greatest certainty that Gender Analyzer had with my little sample was the rock-solid 87% certainty that Peter Rollins is a man. Amen to that.
Don't forget to hope
