The tool purports to be able to predict one’s gender based on a sample of one’s writing. I decided to test the tool on three samples: 1) my blog post, “More“, 2) the 5,000+ word short story I entered into the Writers of the Future Contest, and 3) a writing sample from my wife.
Here are the results:
Writers of the Future Contest Submission
Wife’s Writing Sample
So, according to the Genie, I am married to a man.
The bottom line is that my non-fiction writing is more masculine than my wife’s non-fiction writing, which, in turn, is more masculine than my fiction writing. In fact, I can quantify it. My non-fiction writing is over three times as masculine as my fiction writing.
Pretty weird, huh?
I look forward to hearing your results.
