Is it a boy blog or a girl blog?
Gender Analyzer claims that “It uses Artificial Intelligence to determine if a homepage is written by a man or woman” so I thought I would use it to check out some RPG blogs.
Starting with ourselves, it correctly identifies 6d6 Fireball (Rob & myself) as male. Chatty DM is also male it seems. Something that will be a relief to his wife and kids. Judging by the look of his blog, Greywulf is fairly macho and Gender Analyzer can clearly smell the testosterone and declares Greywulf male.
Lets check out the two most obvious female blogs in the RPG Bloggers Network. Geeks Dream Girl whose tag line is “helping guys like you get girls like me” appears to be man as well. So anyone following her advice may end up with a Lola-esque surprise. What about “High fantasy. High maintenance”d20 Blonde. Sorry guys, she is a man as well.
So we have clear evidence that three quarters of all female RPG bloggers are in fact men.
Or maybe Gender Analyzer is a load of crap.
