Gender in writing

The Gender Genie (as seen on Whatever) analyses passages of text and tries to guess whether the author was male or female. Fun to play with, but it seems to be very confused about my writing. I gave it a blog entry I wrote about touchy-feely emotional stuff and it said I was male. A blog entry about working on my car came out as female. I then fed two of my short stories into it. It said a story told in first person POV by a female protagonist was written by a man, but a story that was mostly dialogue and didn't contain any female characters apparently had a female author.

Just out of interest, I fed this blog entry into it. Today, it seems, I am writing as a man!
