Gender Bending, Transgressive, or Just Confused?

Dovegreyreader has an interesting link to The Gender Genie. Paste in a blog post or some other text and the Gender Genie will guess whether the author is male or female. It even gives you a score and a spiffy graph breakdown of male and female keywords. The answer from the Gender Genie is based on an algorithm. Who decides what words are male and what words are female I have no idea. I put in my Friday post and my Saturday post and both times the Gender Genie overwhelmingly decided I was a male. I'm pretty sure I'm female. At least I was last time I checked.
