Écriture Masculin?

Posted by – November 21, 2008

The webstie the GenderAnalyzer proposes to know the gender of your blog. Or its author, I assume.

(en)gender is apparently 67% male, and apparently it’s wrong about 47% of the time, which is probably not a whole lot better than just guessing.

I wonder if it would get Hélène Cixous‘ blog right.

    The last time I tried one of these things, I put in some lumps of Famous Writers and it decided that Charles Dickens was female and Jane Austen was male. Still, as this one tells me what I want to hear, I say yeah. Yeah!

    Y’know, it’s enough to make one question the entire idea and structure of “gender”….
