Last week, catching up on my blog reading I noted that Andrew Jones (Tall Skinny Kiwi) had done a little test on his blog, which computed the gender of the blog author according to the content of the blog.
Oh how I laughed reading that the results showed the blog author was ‘gender neutral’ – how mirthful I became as I read his claims that it must be the influence of his wife and daughters!
And then how the smile cleared from my butch, masculine face as I read the results of the same test on my own humble scribblings:
I can’t believe it! What is it about all the talk of manly things on this here blog which makes this wretched program think I’m feminine? Not that I would have a problem with it, if I was a woman – but I’m not! I’m a man!
To make the situation worse I did the test on some other blogs by male friends of mine, and there’s came out as masculine – (I’m not saying who, because its too humiliating).
Ok, so I like cooking and do the occasional bit of sewing, but apart from that, well, I just dont think I’m all that feminine… ho hum.
