The Gender Guesser evaluates a sample of writing and uses a set of criteria to determine the gender of the author for both informal and formal genres. Scroll down on the page – the linguistics & theory behind it is pretty fascinating too! Here’s the results from the sample of my writing from the post below:

“Genre: Informal
  Female = 85
  Male   = 566
  Difference = 481; 86.94%
  Verdict: MALE

Genre: Formal
  Female = 414
  Male   = 298
  Difference = -116; 41.85%
  Verdict: Weak FEMALE. Weak emphasis could indicate European.”

Um, shit!
