My Pesky Vagina: Artificial Intelligence Gets It Wrong

So, like any other bloggers, I check to see who is visiting and linking to my blog.  Imagine my surprise when I came across  Of course My curiosity was peeked and I had to go check it out.  It seems that from analyzing the written material a blog, it can determine the sex of the author.  Nothing like engaging in a little essenntialism.  You would think the name alone would be enough to clue in that a woman is writing….


Well they may be 80% certain, but my vagina is 100% certain that I am a woman.  Once again more proof that gender and how we understand it is strictly determined by social construction.
