Passing in cyber space
I have to credit Petra for this post. I had to try it, and though I know the program searches for signifiers, hits, if you will, that belie gender (captions, certain words, add-ons, etc.) it is still is tre cool.
We think http://southerncrossdressing.blogspot.com/ is written by a woman (79%).
Try it out...http://genderanalyzer.com/
Also...for those who like this sort of thing check out:
What sex/gender is your brain?. Which I must say is based on current psychological and psychiatric research (I teach intro psych and stay up on all things gender).
And a typealyzer which assigns your blog a stripped down Myers Briggs personality type. Note: the real Myers Briggs takes a while to finish, and this website uses similar hits and misses as the gender analyzer to box you into a personality label. It's all fun, but don't get over worked if you don't like the results. At best the analysis is skim.
According to the typealyzer I'm:
"The entertaining and friendly type. They are especially attuned to pleasure and beauty and like to fill their surroundings with soft fabrics, bright colors and sweet smells. They live in the present moment and don´t like to plan ahead - they are always in risk of exhausting themselves.
The enjoy work that makes them able to help other people in a concrete and visible way. They tend to avoid conflicts and rarely initiate confrontation - qualities that can make it hard for them in management positions."
