Gender Analyzer

This is really interesting. I found it from Anas’s blog and I thought Id test this tool a lil with the links on my blogroll πŸ™‚ (Just as in Anas’s post, my comments are in italics)

Mahwash: We guess is written by a man (55%), however it’s quite gender neutral. I expected different result here.

Hira S: We think is written by a man (76%). Pretty much expected.

Kurri: We think is written by a woman (71%).
Finally someone who represents her gender really well! πŸ™‚

Mariyas: We have strong indicators that is written by a man (98%).
Oho…something seriously went wrong here

Purple: We guess is written by a woman (57%), however it’s quite gender neutral. Again, I expected the results to be different.

Safi: We have strong indicators that is written by a man (91%).
lol…no surprises here

Saadat: We think is written by a man (76%). Fair enough, what do u say? πŸ™‚

  1. Ohhh K, I hope this ain’t one o’ those posts which get 86 comments and drift away from topic (that drifting away is usually done by me or SAWJ)

    91%???? That ain’t good enough!!!

  2. And an observation… none of the blog have any inclination towards being written by women, except for kurri.

    Are you guys really straight???

  3. Haha, yeah, I came to know about it on the same blog where Anas found it. Judging from the comments there, and the results you have mentioned, it apparently seems that their classifier mostly gives wrong results for female writers. Maybe they need to choose some better examples of “female blogs” for training.

    76% is kinda fine… could have been better. But at least I am not “gender neutral”! πŸ˜€

  4. @ Anas
    yea why not πŸ˜‰

    @ safi
    hehehe it wont drift away from the topic if you dont want it to.
    and plzz…91% is good. Most of the people are ‘gender neutral’!

    @ Saad
    lol i wonder how many men would have a post on mehndi hands

    @ purple
    hehehe….look at safi’s question above. its for people like us with ‘gender neutral’ blogs

    @ kurri
    your’s was spot on! πŸ™‚

    @ Saadat
    yea its not giving correct results for female bloggers…i think their training set either wasnt very balanced in terms of number of blogs by men and women or their female bloggers were only writing about fashionista πŸ˜‰

  5. Come on! you guys need a Gender Analyzer to tell you your gender? That is so pathetic…

    However I think I can find a much better use for it.

  6. @ Hira
    i didnt know you like violent movies. I expected that cuz you are one of the few women who can ‘deal’ with men and male chauvinism far more easily than most woman πŸ™‚

  7. @ Saad : You are so mean!!! If Mariyas would have been a GUY he wouldnt have fallen in louve with a 12 year old baccha πŸ˜›

    so, MAriyas isis FEMALE πŸ™‚
