Throughout my life, I have been a pretty soft guy. I admit that. I mean, with the exception of me being extremely pissed and vindictive about things in life, the only things I’m really outspoken for are the things I truly believe in. Then again, sometimes you got to rethink how far you actually are softspoken for a guy when conversations you have with people turn up like this.
(michaelooi): i know
(michaelooi): i guessed it was you
(michaelooi): and you’re a lady
(michaelooi): but lilian thought you’re a guy
(kamigoroshi): ummm…i AM a guy..
(kamigoroshi): what the hell?
You see at this point, I was right to go “What the hell…?” because its one thing when girls begin to really trust you quite easily enough to share their personal thoughts. It’s another thing when other guys think you’re a girl easily enough to point it out that casually. I mean…I don’t mind being mistaken for being gay…I have had that enough in my life tobe used to it, at least being mistaken for a gay man, people will still know you have a little guy hanging down between your legs that wake up every once in a while to see how things are doing. But being flat out thought of as a girl…
Something is seriously wrong here.
So as the scientist I am, I went ahead and conducted my own experiment to see whether I can really be mistaken for a woman online.
Edrei’s Gender Determining Experiment:
Test Subject: Edrei’s blog posts.
Method of Analysis: Gender Geanie
Now the gender geanie is a system that uses certain algorithms based on keywords we use to determine the gender of posts. This has been publishd in Nature magazine which is a respectable science journal that I usually read so it’s not really one of those crackpot tests you see online. Now I selected a total of 10 random posts from my blog and this is what I came up with.
– End Experiment –
So there we have it, even IF for some reason some of my posts may show female qualities on them, there is no reason for anyone to think I am a woman. I don’t even have a clue why you said I write like a woman. I mean…this is science and science proved that I’m a guy…well…80% random posts proved that I’m a guy. But yeah…it’s still large enough to know I’m definitely a guy (no pun intended).
So really…I just need to ask those of you who actually do take interest in what I write.
My writing can’t possibly be mistaken for a girl right?
I really need to know this.
