Are we not men?

GenderAnalyzer sez there's an 83% chance that we here at Fudge are men. Since I'm a woman, and post with about the same frequency as Carnaby, maybe it should have been about 50%. Then again, I am a Nerd God(dess).

Here's the breakdown for my favorite blogs:

Michelle Malkin - woman, 73% (accurate)
Dirty Harry's Place - man, 89% (accurate)
Kim du Toit - man, 67% (accurate)
The Smallest Minority - man, 66% (accurate)
Rachel Lucas - man, 63% (inaccurate)

Here's the breakdown for some left-wing blogs, some of which feature a variety of diarists of both sexes:

Huffington Post - woman, 100% (variety, probably inaccurate)
The Daily Kos - man, 67% (variety, ?)
Think Progress - man, 65% (variety, ?)
Wonkette - man, 53% but "quite gender neutral" (inaccurate)
Deltoid - woman, 99% (inaccurate)

WRT Deltoid, it might not be so wrong. I'm reminded of a line from the original Ghostbusters film:

"It's true, your Honor. The man has no dick."

(Word verification: larges. Coincidence? I think not!)

It appears that I'm female "We think is written by a woman (67%)" This will shocking news to my wife and kids.

Perhaps I should talk about football and NASCAR ;)

GenderAnalyzer says there's a 59% probability that my blog is written by a man, but is quite gender neutral. I don't know how much of my stuff it analyzed, but I doubt that it looked at "Minute of Bad Guy."

I'd like to know what the algorithm's criteria are.

Actually, I went back and had it analyze "Minute of Bad Guy," in which I identify myself as average white boy, among other things. It thinks that the piece was written by a woman (55%), "although it's quite gender neutral." Whatever its algorithm is, it doesn't work.
