Do you write like a boy or a girl?

Just discovered a website which will tell you whether the author of the piece of writing is a man or a woman. I tried it with some Blog entries and the Gender Genie confirmed that I was indeed a man. The Gender Genie uses a simplified version of an algorithm developed by Moshe Koppel, Bar-Ilan University in Israel, and Shlomo Argamon, Illinois Institute of Technology, to predict the gender of an author.

Oops, I must be suffering from some form of gender confusion. Last time I checked I was a boy, but the Genie thinks I'm a girl. Thanks for leading me to question my identity!

Apparently I write like a boy. I gave a sample of part of my book that is currently under development and that was the outcome. Though, I was quite pleased with this, as my story follows the mind of an 11 year old boy.
