Writing and Gender

Via Geoff Coupe comes the Gender Genie, supply some writing and it tells you your gender. I gave it a blog posting (well two as it prefers longer texts) and it had me as just male (458 vs 454). I then supplied it with some Julian of Norwich one of the earliest known female writers in English and it recognised her as female (305 vs 212).

Last week's sermon is male:
2911 male / 2080 female.

I've done this before and my writing has always been male.

"The" is apparently a "male" word!!!
