You Can't Get There From Here

The gender genie has proclaimed me male in most of my writings. I'm not just male but overwhelmingly male in most cases. The only entries which were significantly female were the entries which were, more or less, in story form. This knowledge can be attributed to my roommate Deb;she seems to enjoy pillaging through my blog while hesitating to start her own. I believe the result is from deleting useless modifiers and not using the word mauve frequently enough. I have nothing. I am in a middle of a study rampage after being a useless groupie all weekend. I'm suspended in a week that is in need of melioration; it�s as if I were Rapunzel having been told not to cut her hair, and cutting it anyway discovers the after effects are chilling. Oggie was right: You can't get there from here. Still time to join the Bloggie Boob-Athon At the very least take a peek and make a donation.

O. k. I gave the gender nimrod a couple of pages of my article on Emmanuel Levinas and American literature, and it pronounced me male and on top of that had the nerve to call me a butch chick when I told it it was wrong. This will be news to Dr. Weirsdo.

I put in part of an econ paper and it said male,but it called me pretty.
You write fairly matter of fact so maybe that is the reason.

I had to look up Rapunzel in order to understand that paragraph. Why not just say you did some stuff that caused you to have a bad week? That Rapunzel stuff is girl writing.

I put some blog posts in there and they all came out male. My fiction pieces came out half and half though...

I'm not proud to say that I had to look up melioration, but I like the word a lot and will use it.

I forget... if the prince climbs up Rapunzel's hair, wouldn't he just be locked in the tower with her? There are worse fates I know, but that doesn't mean that you don't plan ahead

Hehehe...strange...I should try the gender detector. Perhaps it'll tell me I am a gay male of the leather variety, instead of a surfing lesbian of the normal variety.

Alice, enjoy being a useless groupie while you can. I used be one, now however, the music is too loud and beer makes me sleepy, and I have to get up at 5:30am to surf in the morning. Ah, priorities.

I took a peak, but I ain't paying $50 to see boobies. Maybe next year when yours are up.

I submitted a 450 word entry for the gender genie and my scores are:

Female Score: 88
Male Score: 1267

And it concluded that I'm a male.

Looks like we have something in common.

Good luck with school. I know it gets old. Fall break should be approaching.

Ok, Gender Genie was totally hit or miss...it mostly female, but deemed some of my writing male.

Perhaps we have our more feminine or mascualine days and is expressed in our writing. Or perhaps the written word is genderless.

I can't say the sample pool was large, but it certainly was diverse. I'm happy to report feeding the gender genie four of my articles and four of Breanne's it was correct an amazing 7 out of 8 times.

Women are ballsy these days.

I have nothing to put in the genie but guess that it would be accurate only so much as it could take into consideration the circumstance surrounding the writing.
The Rapunzel analogy makes your week sound like it's not going so well. I hope it gets better.

Fifty dollars for boobs,worth it if one were to donate it and take a tax deduction and if the boobs were spectacular.

I refuse to stick my gender parts in any sort of oil lamp. Something might get burned before the genie comes out.

What's wrong with Rapunzel?

Being a girlie girl no longer means you can't play in the big leagues---of political writing and other such places

Actually, I did take the test, with both a blog post and the synopsis of my novel, and both came up male.

Today, I am a man. I was yesterday, too. And pretty much every day since birth.

That means that thing down there really is a penis. WOOHOO!!

Otherwise, I'd kinda need to see a doctor.

weirdso: I won't tell him.

jake: It called you pretty???? Now I'm really mad.

Wombat: It's all that baseball, I'm sure of it. Makes you manly.

MJ: This weekend, but it may entail mostly study..... or not.
My boobs are there of course as my very young love of my life grandmother died from breast cancer or the complications of treatment... so there ya ago. Anyway it usually cost much more to see my boobs so you really should have taken a chance.

Leigh: Yea the problem is when I get behind it makes me nuts, I'm very anal retentive that way. I guess I have mostly masculine days thats why I have to send by boob pictures in ...to prove otherwise.

MoJo: Yours would come out perfect.

tran: I never really minded wearing them.

Joe: They are regular old women boobs. Some people like em some people don't.

Pia: here here girl.

Coyote: No one asked to stick anything anywhere. Is it amazing to find out that the thing is real or what? Your silly.

I swear I posted a comment to some of this late last night. Is blogger eating all these things or am I hallucinating from lack of sleep?

The gender genie thinks that I'm a male, though my feminine side did crop up to a significant degree.

Just what I need right now...gender confusion at my age.

Okay, the gender genie thing just called me a big girl and I don't like it.

I hope your studying isn't too much hard work, Alice.

That gender genie is pretty sharp. Even if it's wrong. Got me though.

LOL...guess I'm 3/4 male, 1/4 female according to the Gender Genie thing.

To the commenter above it is a simile not an analogy.

Can't help my self righteous indignation is showing.

I liked it.

I did three partial papers.

Male, Male and a fifty-fifty

What do you mean it usually costs much more to see your boobs? I didn't know a dinner and a movie cost so much :)

Wow...seems your boobs are becoming the subject of much conversation ;) Perhaps they should create their own blog.

Doug: It's not nice to fool the gender genie. It got you because you let your guard down with all that baseball stuff. Cheering and yelling and making a damn fool of yourself. I warned you.

Zenfo: Is that like three percent milk?

John: You are so good at that self righteous stuff.

MJ: A dinner and a movie is not juste compens�e. If one needs compensation for such one should probably keep em covered don't ya think? ;)

Basically whenever my hair comes up I mention that Johnny Damon has long hair. Sometimes I'm asked who the hell he is and my eyes start to bleed and I lose about fifteen minutes.

I sware if it weren't for that menstration thing I'd choose to be a woman to experience multiple orgasms any day....

Being a man sucks because you gotta worry about your parts flopping all over the place.

Somehow, I am happy that I came out male in the Gender Genie thing. Of course, a writing teacher told me the same thing (she said there was a maleness to my writing), so I guess she was right. I knew it. My boobs aren't big enough for the boob-athon

man you aint got the right to complain about worrying about floppy parts. Mine are at the same altitude as the average kitchen stove. The very phrase "Naked Chef" makes me quiver with fear and projected pain.

Quite a congregation you have here Alice.

I will defend your honor by saying the boob a thon is a valid charitable contribution and is raising money got a good cause.

Rapunzel- long golden locks of hair right?

The gender genie appeared stunned by a marketing proposal I submitted.

LOL...probably. Everybody needs a little gender confusion every now and then...where's my damned saffron skirt, dammit! Brings out the hazel in my eyes ;)

As for the boob a thon thing, hey, show em if ya got em. I've never heard a guy complain about em yet. What a great marketing idea...when they launch a ballsathon to fight testicular cancer, I'll be ready to rock...
