I think we're getting into a weird area here.

Okay, so I'm catching up on posts at BAC's place and she had this fun post linking to this blog Genderanalyzer so I think to myself "why not give it a shot?" The results-

"We have strong indicators that http://deansoffice.blogspot.com/ is written by a woman (100%.)"

That's it. No ambiguity. No 50% woman, 50% man. The analyzer ran through my two years of postings and determined that I was unequivocally and without the slightest shadow of a doubt a member of the fairer sex.

BAC points out that the Jesus General flipped out over scoring only 72% on the manly scale. What am I supposed to think of my own score with that in mind?

In the first place I'm PLENTY macho. I watch football. I scratch myself and embarrass my wife in general. I rarely play with puppies unless they're really, really cute and I can't bring myself to sit through any film with the words "ya ya," "sisterhood" or "pants" in the title.

Then there's the silhouette they chose for me--


Doesn't exactly scream "man of action" now does it?

This is a more appropriate silhouette for me--

That's exactly how I look. Exactly. (Only take the muscles in the arms and legs and move them towards the middle.)

Now, if you'll excuse me I have a screening of "Twilight" to get to. That Robert Pattinson is dreamy, don't you think? Harumph!

I ran that same test in my blog and it granted me with 92% (or something close to it) of pure manhood. Considering I dwell a lot on the America's Next SuperModel contest I made up, I really don't understand how I got such a high score, lol.

On the other hand, there was a test about the value of blogs and I got 0 dollars. Reality is harsh, isn't it? :P

Comics,

That's hysterical. Reality is indeed a harsh mistress. Or something.

Look on the bright side: "Woman" is better than "pre-teen girl," isn't it?

I think I'd beat you at arm-wrestling, girlie.

Hypatia said...

Dean, I'd actually take your scoring as a compliment...also goes to show this man vs woman thing is total BS.

As in real people are usually more complicated...or INTERESTING than a computer analysis might indicate.

Gotta hear your thoughts on the Twilight thing...got some good reads for ya on it.

ladybug said...

We guess http://hypatiaspeaks-hypatia.blogspot.com/ is written by a woman (58%), however it's quite gender neutral.

Hell Dean, that IS weird!

Ladybug AKA Hypatia..

Don Snabulus said...

Snabbyland is 68% man...Two farts and a pirouette.

Randal Graves said...

I got 60%. Must be all the verse. Dean, you're like the internet Conan!

Mauigirl said...

I did that quiz and it was 69% sure I was a guy! And the name of my blog is MauiGIRL's Meanderings. I don't think it was very accurate!

Lockwood said...

I got 60% male, which is 60% right. Most of the time when teaching, 60% is considered failing. On the other hand, what manly man wouldn't want to have a mammary or two avaiable whenever. But it uses "artificial intelligence;" it must be right.

Arkonbey said...

I was 75% male and Sweet Enemy was 75% female.

I do wish I could see the model they used to come up with that garbage. Maybe it's because I use shorter words and sentence fragments and have many misspellings causes me to be mostly 'male'.

Lockwood: I had a friend, a crusty Wisconsin hunter, who once said if he had breasts, he'd never leave his room.

uber-

Look on the bright side: "Woman" is better than "pre-teen girl," isn't it?

Depends on whether you throw the Jonas Brothers into the mix.

Go ahead and rub in my total lack of masculinity with the arm wrestling jokes. :-)

Hypatia-

Truth be told I'm really not insulted but I do think it's funny. I spent last weekend alternating between hanging drywall and watching football for God's sakes.

On Twilight I'm probably the only one in the family not going ga-ga over it. Book was okay.

Ladybug-

Down the middle I can see. It's the 100% that I think is funny.

Don-

Two farts and a pirouette.

All of the prose, thought and tears shed towards discerning the difference between men and women through history and you boil it down to one simple sentence.

Randal-

Thanks, but by Conan do you mean the red-headed comedian? Because I don't consider him muy macho.

mauigirl-

Maybe the quiz is set up to mess with our heads.

Lockwood-

Manboobs are why George Castanza's dad invented the "Bro."

Arkonbee-

Me too. Perhaps more swearing and sports talk?

Liberality said...

hey, better late than never here. I was very macho at 73% male. :)
