I've had a sex change, am older than I am, but write happily most of the time

By Grant Jacobs 20/09/2010

Did the news about my sex change get your attention?

Going around science blogs over the last few days have been another of ’those’ blog text-analysis web services. (The previous one was What famous writer do you write like?).

Go to http://urlai.com/ and enter the URL of your favourite blog, or your own.

Apparently I write with a wide range of ages, but most often like someone much older. I seem to have unexpectedly become bisexual with a slight leaning to female. Less unexpectedly, most of the time my writing is happy and there is an even split between academic and personal.

I’m not alone amongst my fellow sciblings in having developed unexpected mixed gender ’issues’ and not writing writing my age. I won’t spoil the fun and will let people find out for themselves.

  • Hmm… maybe my sciblings are keeping what this web service judges them to be to themselves?! (Yes, I’m egging them on…)

  • Oh all right! 🙂 Apparently I’m an elderly gentleman (somewhere in the age range 66-100), & most of my posts have a happy tone. I’m glad to hear the latter – but the gender issue will be news to my family!!

  • Alison, maybe it thinks the blogger is the boney gentleman to your left 😉

    It’s weird that it thinks you are upset, David. Goodness knows where it’s getting that from!

  • Well apparently I am of the opposite sex and quite a few generations above my present age. Seems also that I missed the boat on mood of my blog as I always thought it pessimistic and depressing. Need to swallow less of those antidperessants – they must be working!!!

  • Well apparently I’m happy (mmm, I wonder if their textural analysis quite got the point of my tiger posts), write in an academic style (ok, reasonable), and I’m probably a woman.

    Because women are more likely go feral, drink with the natives and play with crocodiles? I’m thinking some refinement is required to their algorithms.

  • I wonder what’s with it’s inability to pick gender??

    (More academically, it’s shame there aren’t confidence estimates as part of the report.)

  • Hahaha 🙂

    This is hilarious. Is there something about sciblogs??? Most of us seem to be undergoing gender changes…

    So far, 5 out of 6 times it has those that have written in being of the other gender.
