Random quote of the day:

“As a Black woman and a Black woman in journalism, I’ve spent most of my career and most of my life mainly thinking about what it means to be a Black person in America. I think about my race from the time I wake up until the time I go to bed….I think a lot more about being Black than I think about being a woman….Because if you are a white woman, until very recently, you have not thought about being white, which frees you up to think about the only thing that holds you back in life, which is gender.”

—Errin Haines, Glamour, “8 Journalists on Reporting While Black, With the Weight of History on Their Shoulders,” June 3, 2020

So, a humorous comment by mount_oregano led me on a little journey around The Internet and I stumbled upon this Analyzer called Gender Guesser. I plugged in some words from Venus In Transit, the same novel I used for yesterday’s meme, and discovered I am a European male. Here are the results:

Total words: 330

Genre: Informal
Female = 215
Male = 501
Difference = 286; 69.97%
Verdict: MALE

Genre: Formal
Female = 303
Male = 370
Difference = 67; 54.97%
Verdict: Weak MALE

Weak emphasis could indicate European.
